From New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the first in an explosive new quartet of stories set in the Elder Races world…. Dragos and Pia are back by popular vote!

 

***THIS STORY ENDS IN A CLIFFHANGER***

 

Saying goodbye to their old life in the Wyr demesne in New York may be hard, but Dragos and Pia are determined to create a new life in the Other land of Rhyacia.

 

At first, everything seems idyllic. Rhyacia is paradisiacal. Accompanied by old friends and new allies, the future looks safe and bright for Dragos, Pia, and baby Niall.

 

But strange things are happening beneath the picturesque façade. Items move unaccompanied, buildings collapse without justifiable cause, and even the most Powerful residents of Rhyacia can provide no logical explanation for the events transpiring. Whispered rumors point to something called the unseen.

 

As Dragos and Pia investigate, they uncover a greater mystery than they could have imagined, and they realize the startling truth…

 

They’re not alone in Rhyacia. The land Dragos had thought was uninhabited hides many secrets, a shocking history that’s not quite ready to be buried, and something more.

Something ancient, evil, and hungry. Something that wants to consume Dragos and take everything he holds dear.

 

Something that just may be powerful enough to overcome the dragon…

 

***This is book 1 in a series of 4 connected novellas. The first three books in this set will end in cliffhangers.***

The Unseen is a novella in the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison. It’s full of humor, romance, surprises and all of your favorite Wyr characters.

 

Fans will enjoy return to the Elder Races series and one of the main couples Pia and Dragos. If you haven’t read the Elder Races series then you need to start at the beginning and read in order. This novella is not the place to start. 

 

It was such a joy return to the Elder Race world. I love all the different kinds of Wyr’s and how vast the world building is. We are always treated to something new in each novel or novella. 

 

It was fabulous seeing all the old characters from all the novels. They come together to wish Pia and Dragos good luck on their new adventure, but even with them leaving the Wyr demise and moving to the Other land of Rhyacia things don’t go as planned and the gang comes together to help. I loved seeing many of my favorite couples come back and having the author give us insight into where they are and what they are doing now. It was so fantastic to get answers to things I was thinking about and wondering. 

 

The Cuelebre family are a joy to read about. It’s so great to see how much Pia has grown, to see Stinkpot and his adorableness, and to see how much Dragos love for his Mate. 

 

I would love to tell you more, but I don’t want to ruin the surprises. I will point out that the author does note to her readers this novella ends on a cliffhanger. I have a love-hate relationship with cliffhangers, but I have to say this cliffhanger was in the perfect spot. It has left me wanting the next novella and I can’t wait until it comes out. Luckily I won’t have to wait long, since the author will be releasing the next three novellas in quick succession. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Book Review: The Fire Unseen (Book 1)
The Fire Unseen (Unseen Series #1) - Andrew C. Jaxson

After reading The Dark Unseen last week I knew I had to grab the first book in this series right away, and I was not disappointed. Jaxson creates a world within our world that cryptic, hidden, and possesses special powers.

 

There are some particularly graphic moments and the supernatural elements will send a chill up your spine. Don’t fret though, you won’t need a night light for too long after reading this story.

 

Ari is a reluctant heroine. We meet her as she’s coping with a significant loss having survived a town explosion that killed several other people. For all intents and purposes she should not have survived, but by some miracle she comes out mostly unscathed. Then a mysterious new friend visits in the hospital and things start getting weird.

 

Ari is thrown into an unknown world and has no choice but to trust those helping her. There are twists and reveals throughout the story that keep the pace moving quickly as you dive into this new complex world with Ari. Despite physical and mental exhaustion our heroine fights the evil lurking at every turn.

 

I recommend this book if you’re in the mood for a thrilling YA story that creeps you out and makes you question which side is good or evil, and how much fate determines the future of our world.

Book Review: The Dark Unseen (prequel)
The Dark Unseen (Unseen Series 0.5) - Andrew C. Jaxson

What a wild ride. This short little novella will grab your senses and take you along a creepy journey like no other. Jaxson has a way with words that makes you not want to stop reading, you have to know what happens next.

 

If you aren’t a fan of creepy things that go bump in the night, this book is not for you. While it’s directed as young adult, I would recommend this for ages 16 and up. There are some graphic moments.

 

We meet Hud as he graduates high school. To celebrate he and his two best friends go camping high up in the mountains. What was supposed to be a night of celebrating and reminiscing quickly turns dark and sinister. This unknown monster has the teens running for their lives. As these events unfold, Hud starts recalling memories from another time in his life. Does he know this monster already?

 

I recommend this book if you’re in the mood for a thrilling YA story that will leave you wanting more. I was so enthralled I immediately started the next book, The Fire Unseen, after finishing this one. Check back next week for that review! You won’t be disappointed.

From Unseen Fire by Cass Morris - My Thoughts
From Unseen Fire (Aven Cycle #1) - Cass Morris

When I was a kid, barely even a teenager, I loved to read about ancient Greece and Rome. All those gods and goddesses, all those myths, they fascinated me.  This book was like going back in time, but to an ancient time when those myths also had magic added into the blend. 

I loved the world-building, the way the magics of the people merged quite well with what I know about the history of ancient Rome.  It all felt quite familiar, yet not.

The characters were engaging, many of them not wet behind the ears youngsters coming into their own, but established, mature folks - something I'm always on the lookout for.  The heroine, Latona, is the middle of three sisters, and has been repressing her natural magic talents as well as her smarts.  Married to what I'd term a Barney Businessman type in contemporary terms, she had been forced to serve as the now-deceased dictator of Aven's mistress.  She feels almost freed by his death and begins to experience a growing of her powers. 

The hero of the tale is Sempronius, a man who has been hiding his own powers, powers having been for the most part proscribed by the aforementioned dictator, and living in a sort of exile.  He has returned to the city and wants to dedicate his life to making Aven the greatest it can be and then he meets Latona and there's instant chemistry. 

Anyway, the politics are interesting and written in such a way that they never become boring.  There is some military action happening out in the 'provinces' where a general of the people for the barbarians has arisen.  There's that romance I mentioned and there's character growth on both sides.

I liked it.  I enjoyed my read, it was meaty and juicy, filled with all sorts of things. There wasn't a huge ending to the book though. There was definitely what could be termed an ending of this part of the tale and I was satisfied by it, instead of being frustrated with a huge cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to the next book. :)
