The review --
This is a wonderful book, especially if you like dragons or shifters or paranormal romance. There is fun and romance, and a different take on the shifter romance that is thoroughly refreshing. The author is to be commended for doing such an excellent job on not only this book, but all the books in the series. I loved the main characters, Bastian and Acasia, plus the other characters mentioned, that occupy the other 3 books in the series.
I originally picked this book up on a free download that I found out about through free book emails I subscribe to. I was taking a break from my read and review list, but I enjoyed the book so very much, I decided to contact the author about reviewing the other 3 books in the series. Their reviews will be following this one.
This writer truly has a gift, and I enjoyed her writing immensely She has a different take on the dragon shifter story that is wonderful. The characters come to life, and the story is not your run of the mill shifter romance. It is so much more than that. If you like paranormal romance, you will love this book.
