Bewitching the Dragon - Jane Kindred

Ione Carslisle has worked hard and done her best to live down her family reputation for evil. She occasionally uses her magic to disguise herself and pick up a guy for sex to work off her stress. Only the guy she picks up turns out to be the man sent to investigate her, a man that is making her question her plans for her future. Dev Gideon is secretively hosting a demon and his life is very complicated. He's never met a woman that the demon agreed with, until now.

When it turns out that the problems of the coven aren't Ione's fault and they both will risk a lot to survive.

It wasn't a bad read, the characters cared for each other but sometimes it just felt a little off and I'd love to know how they managed to get a group of witches to agree to anything in the first place. It just felt like some of the details were shoehorned in to make the plot work.

Luck of the Dragon
Luck of the Dragon - Susannah Scott

A book about dragons? A heroine with a PhD in gemology who also happens to have a thieving past? Sounds interesting!
In reality? "Holy Mary, Joseph, and Peter!" (Lucy says this way too much). Eh. I was disappointed. I understand family loyalty. But. But, at some point there needs to be a line drawn. Lucy was a doormat when it came to her twin brother. He showed time and time again, he was all about himself. Never once did he show remorse or regret. 
I didn't have any issues with Alec. I thought he was too quick to forgive and trust. Yes, Lucy finally realized she was a doormat, but I thought it was a little too late.
I liked the idea of dragons hiding in plain sight. I like the idea of the male dragons losing their dragon form and becoming human if they don't find their mate. The women don't have that problem. It's a nice power change. I did like Alec's 2nd and 3rd (Leo and Darius) who get their stories in books 2 and 3. It would be nice for Lilly Belle to get her story, I thought she was interesting and stood out to me. I hope Joey's character is gone for good, but with the mark, who knows? I do know I won't read his story, selfish bastard.

Burn
Owned By Fate - Sean Michael

This is book #5 in the Dragon Soul series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to better understand this great series, I recommend reading this in order.

 

Mike knows he should be with his mate.  Being sent away has made him bitter and resentful.  If only he could forget.  If only he could go back in time and talk him into taking a chance.

 

Corryn knows in his heart who he should be with.  He has always known.  Now, with his mate avoiding him - his heart is one big ache.  Magic has helped him survive this long - maybe it will keep him warm while he waits....

 

Destiny plays a major part in this whole amazing series.  However, in this case it could literally cause a problem for these two characters.  I found this story to be both compelling and profound.  Quite frankly, this author's best work yet.  I was moved, and eagerly turning each page.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

High Gauss EM Field: "Dragon's Egg" by Robert L. Forward
Dragon's Egg (Del Rey Impact) - Robert L. Forward


(Original Review, 1991)


I just got around to reading DRAGON'S EGG. It is probably one of the best hard science fiction novels I've ever read. I thought the human characterization was weak in places (not enough introspection, lack of diversity of characters), but clearly Bob knows about the scientific establishment! Actually, I thought that the alien characters were better drawn.

[2018 EDIT: This review was written at the time as I was running my own personal BBS server. Much of the language of this and other reviews written in 1980 reflect a very particular kind of language: what I call now in retrospect a “BBS language”.]

Another story about a little girl and her dragon friend. Similar in style to the first. I still really enjoyed the gorgeous, calming illustrations and the lyrical style used to the tell the story. It is such a soothing book. Great for bedtime.

However, I was a little disappointed to see that the whole crying thing made a comeback. Can this girl do anything but cry when she faces a problem? I didn't like this one as much as the first because of the crying. I could kind of see the reason in the first, but this one could have been handled differently. She could have at least wished for help or yelled for the dragon or something. But no, there she is again, whispering and crying.

Still a beautiful book in terms of language and illustrations. But I wish the girl had a more active role. Love the dragon, but could do without the magical crying.
