Release Day Review! Dangerous Dreams (Obsidian Flame #1) J.C. McKenzie
Dangerous Dreams (Obsidian Flame Book 1) - J. C. McKenzie

 

 

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED IN THE MOON, MIST & MAGIC ANTHOLOGY 

As a dragon shifter in hiding, Lara Stone wants nothing to do with others of her kind or finding a mate. No way, no how. She's perfectly content to work for a security company, masquerading as a simple mage. When the leader of all the dragon clans personally requests her as a bodyguard, Lara fears her secret is blown, or worse. What danger could possibly make Rafael Dragoi, the powerful Astarot, seek protection?

 

 

Dangerous Dreams is a fantastic start to J.C. McKenzie’s new urban fantasy series Obsidian Flame.

 

The characters are fascinating and full of life and the chemistry between Lara and Rafael is electrifying and there are plenty of sparks flying in every direction from every page of this story. Suspense builds throughout as Lara hides her secret while trying to handle being a bodyguard for the hot Rafael which she finds quite difficult.

 

I loved J.C. McKenzie’s Carus series so I was looking forward to starting this new series and I have to say that so far the only thing I find disappointing is that it was too short. This new world promises to be an adventurous one full of snark, passion, thrills, romance, danger and wonderful characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

Dangerous Dreams is the 1st book in the Obsidian Flame series.

 

The story will continue in Dangerous Liaisons will be released in a box set on May 22, 2018.

 

Dangerous Dreams is available in ebook at:

Harbinger of the Storm by Aliette de Bodard
Harbinger of the Storm (Obsidian and Blood Book 2) - Aliette de Bodard

Series: Obsidian and Blood #2

 

The Revered Speaker has died and the council must agree on his successor before the Fifth World succumbs to the star demons (this is a fantasy set in the Aztec Empire in the late 15th century). Acatl (the high priest for the dead) investigates when a star demon appears to have been summoned within the palace to murder someone. They believe the stars are demons that can fall from the sky and rip a man apart (sun worshippers, remember). Basically, Acatl becomes afraid that if the council takes too long to choose a new Revered Speaker, they won't have sufficient protection and the stars will fall from the sky and bring about the end of the world. The end of their world, anyhow.

 

Unfortunately, the middle part of the book with the investigation seemed to go on too long and it feels like I took forever to read it. It was a lot slower (reading time wise) than the first book, anyway. I'll still go on to read the third one but I really hope it picks up.

 

I read this for the "Monsters" square for the Halloween Bingo. It qualifies due to the star demons and the ahuizotls (water creatures). There may have been other creatures mentioned but I don't remember them specifically. This book would also work for the "Murder Most Foul", "Supernatural", "Demons", and "Terrifying Women" squares.

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh $1.99 5 Star Read!
Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling, #12) - Nalini Singh

A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.

A woman whose very existence has been erased.

A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.

A deadly price that must be paid.

The day of reckoning is here.

The Wolves of London: The Obsidian Heart - Mark Morris

Alex Locke is a reformed ex-con, he's working on staying out of that world until he receives an offer he can't refuse and he agrees to steal an artefact, and everything goes horribly wrong, he's caught up with complicated and messy supernatural goings on and he has to try to wind his way through, stay alive, rescue his daughter and possibly save the world.

Entertaining but lacked something for me.
