Fire Born (The Guardian #1) by Rayanne Haines
Fire Born - Rayanne Haines
Fire Born is the first book in The Guardian series, and we start off with Alex. She is just a normal girl, living a normal life - so of course you know that everything is about to explode into the unknown for her! And it does, but it brings with it a dragon Guardian, who is incredibly sexy! Collum is very old, and has his own opinions on how things should be. Alex throws numerous spanners in the works simply because she has her own opinions, and won't change them 'just because'.
 
This is an intricate story, guaranteed to keep your interest as you learn, along with Alex, just exactly how her life is about to change. The characters are all three-dimensional and have their own quirks. Mar is a fantastic character and I can't wait to read more about her. Alex and Collum have a HFN ending, with a promise from Collum. (Why can't I read his name without thinking of Golum instead?!?!?)
 
For a first book, there is enough world-building to satisfy, elemental thrills all the way through, and sexiness by the dozen. A very good start to a series, and I look forward to continuing with the story.

Accessible adaptation of a classic tragedy
By Victor Hugo Manga Classics: Les Miserables Softcover - Victor Hugo

I quite liked this adaptation. I've always found Les Misérables to be pretty tough going, and the tragedy tended to overwhelm its beauty, so the stripped down format and much faster pacing of a graphic novel/manga version works much better for me. It still touches on the tragedy and fits in much of the complexity, while exposing the story structure more plainly. Also, it's pretty. Great way to introduce a classic in a more accessible way.

Attractive romance-manga retelling
Manga Classics: Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre is super well-suited to a shoujo manga format - very soapy! I liked the cute art, though backgrounds were sometimes a little sparse. The plot moves pretty quickly to cover childhood through maturity, and parts are inevitably summarized, but key events got good coverage, and the central romance was, if anything, more enjoyable in this format than others I've seen.

 

I've also reviewed Great Expectations in this series, and I enjoyed the Jane Eyre version quite a bit more. The language used is startling at first, since it's overly formal, but you quickly adjust to the classic lit tone. Really detailed liner notes and character art at the end are a nice addition.

 

Great for kids new to the title, fans of manga-style art and romances, or those looking for an accessible entry point to a classic novel.

Intercepted by Love: Part Six: A Football Romance
Intercepted by Love: Part Six: A Football Romance - Rachelle Ayala
Andie and Cade took the scenic route to their happy ending. The highway of smooth sailing took a u-turn on heartbreak bridge and ended up in dangerous territory, but the road to forever was always in their sights. From scandalous to suspenseful and neverending, Ms. Ayala has succeeded in keeping readers guessing and listeners invested until the bitter end.
