Review! Half-Blood Dragon (Dragon Born Saga #1) K.N. Lee!
Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy - K.N. Lee,Cait Reynolds

 

 

New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee presents Half-Blood Dragon, the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy.

 

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

 

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

 

A lady-in-waiting's job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather's plan to elevate the family's station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen's days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits.

 

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince's murder.

 

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

 

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

 

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

 

 

Embarking on this breathless and fascinating journey is one that will readers will certainly enjoy as it brings pirates, dragons, sorcerers and even mermaids to brilliant and vivid life.

 

Rowen is planning to elevate her family’s status by marrying the crown prince, but prophecies haunt her dreams, intrigue and seduction fill her days and death awaits. Change is coming with a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world and Rowen will have to accept her fate, awaken her gift and set the world on fire.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily enchant readers into their world full of thrilling suspense, excitement and daring plots that keep readers on the edge of their seat during this steady to fast paced plot. Most of the story is all about the intrigue which keeps ensures readers never have a dull moment as they try to determine what will happen next especially since it is filled with startling twists that cause astounding changes to Rowen’s life. There is also quite a bit of emotional issues that ensures that readers feel as if they understand the characters and which certainly adds depth to the story as Rowen faces prejudice, danger, and destiny. There’s not a whole lot of romance in this part of the story, although there is the seduction of the Crown Prince which is essential to Rowen’s stepfather’s plans.

 

The characters and the world are well developed and the author described the world and her characters vividly so it made is easy for me to imagine each and every scene as I became caught up in the story. The author did end the story at a decent point, but the story does have a cliffhanger as it is part of a saga, so I am looking forward to discovering what happens next in Rowen’s world.

Meet Alex Price
Half-Off Ragnarok - Seanan McGuire

I guess every couple of books, we focus on another sibling: Verity, Alex and Antimony.   We've met them both, through memories or phone calls, but we didn't get much of them.   Alex is a geek who's speciality is reptiles.   Crypto-reptiles to be specific.   (So.   Many.   Snakes.   Yay!)   He works at a reptile house in a zoo as a visiting employee, while trying to breed Basilisk in the backroom, dating another visiting employee who deals with the big cats (and is a super-hot Australian), while trying to figure out why Ohio's frog population is down - and what to do about the cryptozoological replacement in the ecosystem.   If the trend continues, winged frogs will be exposed as a Real Thing That Exists, and he's afraid that the rest of the cryptozoological world will soon follow. 

 

Which will expose them to the Covenant, and also freak out the rest of the world.   What's a geek-boy to do if he ever wants to have another date with that super hot exchange chick he works with?

 

Well, let's just have him meet his patchwork family - literally in the form of his Revenant grandfather who's patched together from dead bodies.   (He was alive once, but Mad Science intervened after his death.   Now grandpa works at the morgue - partly for body parts for him and the rest of the Revenants.)

 

When people start turning to stone, Alex has to discover what kind of 'mythical' creature is behind this, if it's a sapient one or a more animalistic one being used, and how to stop them.   (Basilisk, for example, are cryptozoological and have animal tendencies/brains/mental capacities, while Gorgons are sapient - thus can take part in the human world as long as they put a wig on their hair.   If Basilisk are involved, Alex has to go after whoever is unleashing them, whereas if it's a Gorgon, he can go directly after the Gorgon.)   The fact that his assistant IS a Gorgon and he has Basilisk in the attic - fine, the backroom - complicates things: could he or Dee, or Dee's community be involved?

 

And how many people-turned-statue does it take to get the Covenant to notice and investigate?   Alex better find whoever's doing this before Ohio finds out...

 

Sorry, I am tapped out of good descriptions right now, so you get... this.

ARC review: An Affair with a Spare (The Survivors #3) by Shana Galen
An Affair with a Spare - Shana Galen

An Affair with a Spare - Shana Galen 

Release date: July 3rd, 2018

 

This third installment in the Survivors series showcases the Seducer. Rafe Beaumont’s role in Lt. Colonel Draven’s regiment in the war was nothing like the other soldiers'. Just as dangerous, but not quite as heroic, at least not in his eyes. Now that the war is over and everyone is trying to live a more or less tranquil life, Rafe feels the chance to prove himself as a true hero is still yet to come. However when Draven pretty much orders him to reprise the role of the Seducer, he assumes he’s never going to have that chance. Not quite so my dear Rafe. 

Rafe was such an endearing, amusing character. His easygoing attitude and somewhat sad past was easy to understand. It was pretty obvious why all the women wanted a piece of the beefcake that was Rafe. Collette on the other hand was not as well-defined. She was too innocent to be doing what she was set out to do and I honestly didn’t understand why anyone would consider her for that kind of work. Although when it came to Rafe she was pretty set on what she wanted from him and that sort of redeemed her in my eyes. 

The Survivors that we’ve met in past books make a reappearance here but don't play quite the important a role I would have liked. I didn’t get why Rafe didn’t enlist the help of his friends in a more proactive way in order to achieve his goals. It just seems it would have made his life much easier. Another thing I didn’t enjoy much was the fact that it felt the book was two stories in one. The way it started and the way it changed course in the middle didn’t mesh well. In the end Rafe gets to prove his worth not only to his Lieutenant but also to the woman he loved (in a most romantic way) so I was happy by the time I finished. 

Overall a good read but I think Ewan’s story (first book, Third Son’s a Charm) is still my favorite. 

**I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher**
