New Release Review! Imagine Dragon (Dragon Guard #32) Julia Mills!
Imagine Dragon - Julia Mills

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY! 

All the planning in the world can’t beat dumb luck. 
Even if your dad just happens to be Lugh, the Celtic God of the Sun, and you’re one of the most powerful Guardsmen to ever walk the earth. No matter how hard he tries, Destiny always seems to drop a steamy pile of Dragon crap right in his path...leaving him to clean up the mess and clean up the mess. 


But then he found her. 
Ancient, mysterious, and completely irresistible…She flew into his life, poured light into his soul, and dropped the old jokester to his knees with little more than a wide-eyed glance and a flick of her tail feathers. 

Evil never takes a holiday…especially where finding your Mate is concerned. 
Faced with a powerfully destructive force manufactured by madmen and sent out to destroy all things - be they Magical or Human - it’s up to the Demi-God and his Strix to exterminate not only the menace but also its Maker. 

Save your Mate or save your kin? That’s what this Guardsman must decide. 

Fate Will Not Be Denied… But even She has her limits. 

 

 

 

Imagine Dragon puts reader’s imaginations to the test, it is so full of exciting events and fantastic characters that it kept my brain firing on all cylinders and glued to my seat throughout the entire book.  All the characters in the story are strong, compelling and very memorable but Kayne and Pearl’s electrifying chemistry and their snarky wit held me hostage and I couldn’t help but enjoy their story even as I was sitting on pins and needles during all the action. Their vibrant force of personality was quite inspiring and their passion burned as hot as the sun all while making me laugh with joy at their dialogue and their unorthodox courtship.

 

Anticipation and suspense builds throughout the story with lots of dangerous and thrilling events which ensured that there was never a dull moment. I have to tell you though that the story is very fast paced and you shouldn’t blink while reading it because you might miss some excitement, not that is really a problem because this story draws you in and refuses to let go.

 

This is the first book that I have read in the Dragon Guard series and it certainly won’t be the last as Julia mills has created a fascinating and exciting world to life with very intriguing characters and the world is so energetic and mixed with so much variety that focusing on any one character or event would be a tragedy because there is so much more, so I can’t wait to read the next book in this spirited series of course I will be catching up on the previous books while I wait.

Release Day Review! The Coyote’s Cowboy (Masters of Maria #5) Holley Trent!
The Coyote's Cowboy - Holley Trent

 

 

Those sexy shapeshifters are once again on the prowl in Maria, New Mexico, in this tender romance that explores the soft side of being accepted—and loved.

Sheena Esposito has never rocked the boat in her father’s repressive Coyote pack, but when she learns of his intentions to further antagonize a rival alpha, she can’t stay quiet. She must warn the good guys that trouble is headed their way.

When her search lands her outside Maria, New Mexico, a surly ranch hand pegs her as an annoying stray dog. Desperate to keep his new job, cowboy Austin Stuart plans to get rid of the distraction. Yet, according to his little brother, the dog is really a human, and she’s on the run. Could this get more ridiculous? But he soon finds out shapeshifters are very real…and all signs point to Austin being Sheena’s mate.

After a lifetime spent recovering from one embarrassing social gaffe after another, Austin is open to trading his solitude for a chance at having a partner who’s kind about his rough edges—and no one’s sweeter than Sheena. Unfortunately, Sheena is still under her abusive father’s thumb, and she knows he’s waiting for her back in Sacramento.

It’s up to Austin to convince her that the bravest thing she can do is stay in Maria—not only for him, but so she can incite lasting change in Coyote culture as well.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

 

 

I have just returned from an exciting visit to the Town of Maria where I met two strong and captivating characters. Sheen and Austin held me hostage with their sweet romance as they traversed some rocky slopes, emotional turmoil and dealt with an overbearing and dare I say…evil, alpha / father all while taking pleasure in some red hot passion when their sizzling attraction could not be denied. I felt like I really got to know Sheena, Austin and the people of Maria as Holley Trent brought her wonderful characters to vivid life which made my visit such an exciting event because I felt like I was a part of the action as Sheena fought for her freedom and for her right to choose. Although this trip was a bit short, my visit to Maria was fast paced but full of anticipation and excitement and I can’t wait for my next which will take place in July.

 

 

 

The Coyote’s Cowboy is the 5th book in the Masters of Maria series.

 

The 6th book - The Coyote’s Bride is due to be released on July 23, 2018.

 

The Coyote’s Cowboy is available in ebook at:

Amazon - US   CA   UK   AU

the pieces are all there
American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition - Neil Gaiman

I knew about the pieces relating to Mr. Wednesday (and Low-Key Liesmith)...

 

But I'm pretty sure Mr. Wednesday just admitted to being involved with Laura's death

 

After apologizing for Laura's death/Shadow's loss:

"The man shook his head.  "If it could have been any other way," he said, and sighed." - pg. 29

Getting started a few days late
American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition - Neil Gaiman

I decided it was about time to pick up a new edition of American Gods.  My copy being an old, well worn, well loved, and well traveled paperback version.  I don't know if it was a first edition (I don't recall if there was a hardcover first edition or not, this was over 15 years ago), but if not a first edition, it was definitely an early run.

 

(Quick aside: I apologize for anything here that's duplicated in my wrap up post for the book, b/c I'm pretty sure some will be).

 

My mom and I were Gaiman fans from Neverwhere and Good Omens.  There a handful of books that stand out as profound reads from my adolescent years.  The Cider House Rules by John Irving, a whole slew of books by Sheri S. Tepper, and American Gods stand out quite prominently among those.

 

American Gods perhaps stands out to me in some ways due to my complicated relationship with religion.  I'm fascinated by mythologies and fables, and actively study them whenever the opportunity arises.  Religion on the other hand... I'm not quite a full on atheist, but agnostic doesn't quite seem right (though it's probably the best fit).  I'm interested in systems of belief, and even drawn to spirituality, but find no resonance with any system beyond literary enthrallment.  And I'm not looking for saving, my journey away from the church began when I was very young, scattered memories from when I was younger than 5 where the seeds of confusion and doubt were sown by the very man that tried to raise me in the church.  I could never understand how people who were raised to believe their god was the one true god could be condemned to hell because it was a different god than I was taught in.  Also, my dad informing me my mom was going to hell had some pretty strong repercussions in my toddler's formation of faith.

 

As a teen I was active, imaginative, and prone to deep and often destructive depression.  The dark fantasy and overall darkness of the novel appealed strongly to me.

 

When I say my copy is well traveled, I mean it.  I lent it to college friends who then mailed it back to me when done.  This is on top of my numerous re-reads and the fact that I nearly always have a book with me.

 

When Anasazi Boys came out I was so excited at a sequel to American Gods that the actual reading was a confused let down.  It actually took significant deliberate separation of the two books (and some time) to enjoy Anasazi Boys in it's own right.  At times I might actually enjoy it more than American Gods, but the types of stories they tell are so different to me it's like apples and oranges.

 

I've actually never read the 10th anniversary author's preferred text edition.  And man, it's a pretty impressive paperback.  I'm interested to see what I remember and what pops out as new.

 

And yes, I'm dying with anticipation about the upcoming series.  Every trailer I've seen indicates that regardless of changes they're treating the concepts and series with respect to the inspiration, and they look amazing.  Thankfully, since I no longer have the fancy pants cable package as part of my monthly rent, I have a friend with Stars account so I'll be able to watch it before it comes out on DVD.
