Dragon Unleashed

Shannon: Phoenix Unbound, the prequel to Dragon Unleashed was my first experience with Grace Draven’s writing, and I was beyond impressed by the novel. This, the second book in the series, is set in the same world, but has little noticeable carry-over from the first book. I think readers could ea ...

The Dragons of Summer

I've been enjoying Jeffe Kennedy's Uncharted Realms fantasy romance series since I picked up The Crown of the Queen, a bridging novel between the author's Twelve Kingdoms series (which I've yet to read) and her Uncharted Realms series (which I've now read almost to completion). The end of that serie ...

Flamebringer

Flamebringer is the richly imagined, lushly magical conclusion to the Heartstone trilogy, in which we join Aliza and Alistair almost immediately after the events in Dragonshadow. All of the world and character building take place in the first two novels, so potential readers will definitely want to ...

Dragonshadow

Dragonshadow is the sequel to last year’s popular Pride and Prejudice inspired fantasy romance novel, Heartstone. Picking up shortly after the end of Heartstone, Dragonshadow offers a deeper look at the magical kingdom of Arle and their dangerous enemies: the vicious Tekari and the mysterious Els. ...

Heartstone

The world is full of reworkings of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, from story continuations to the inclusion of zombies. Well, now we have one with dragons. I wasn’t sure going in how well it would work - I was hopeful, but I’ve been let down before. Somehow though, Elle Katharine White has ...

I Dream of Dragons

Paranormal romance doesn’t have to be serious but I expect an author to take their work seriously. I Dream of Dragons never claims to be a dark and brooding story about dragons considering its too cute title; however the humor and the character quirks intended to keep the atmosphere light all fell ...

Feel the Burn

I've been reading Aiken's Dragon Kin series for ages now, and one of my favorite romances is What a Dragon Should Know, the third book. But for some reason I'm not sure of - too many characters, a more and more complex series plot, I don't know what - as the series progresses, I find my interest wan ...

For Promise Yet Unbroken

Welcome to Noman, a planet colonized by humans, settled as an Old West series of towns, and overrun with dragons. Yeah, I wasn't sure where the author was going with this either. But, as we've seen before, space cowboys are pretty interesting characters, and so I was willing to give it a go. I'm gla ...

Dancing With Dragons

Lorenda Christensen is back with the second entry in her DRACIM series, and I found Dancing With Dragons even stronger than its predecessor. Picking up right where Never Deal With Dragons left off, this installment follows Carol Jenski, a secondary character from the first book, on a snarky and roma ...

Never Deal With Dragons

At RWA, I heard Never Deal With Dragons described as a debut combining urban fantasy with a touch of humor. While I'll admit to suffering from a bit of series fatigue, I do have a soft spot for unique-sounding urban fantasy and so I tried this one out of curiosity. While there was a critical piece o ...
