I DREAM OF DRAGONS is a lighthearted and at times very silly paranormal romance. I was confused as to what the title has to do with the story. There are dragons but nothing about dreams or genies. I thought it was a play on “I Dream of Genie” but alas, no genies. The characters were amusing and I loved Rory and his sisters. The way Rory and Amber meet was hilarious as they each tried to come up with ways to ‘share’ the apartment.

I loved getting back to Verity’s storyline in CHAOS CHOREOGRAPHY and especially loved that my silent wish was answered which was to have Dance or Die be in the actual story instead of being constantly referenced to. The dance competition reality show was my favorite part of the story and part of this is due to my love of dance competition reality shows.
FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.
THE OXFORD INHERITANCE was a pretty interesting mystery/suspense story taking place in a college at Oxford. It contains everything you’d expect in a mystery from a mysterious family tree, creepy secret societies, and unexplained murders.
After ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again. Lucky for us, Shearin decided to self-publish more in the series! WEDDING BELLS, MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, and follows the same formula as other books in the series – successfully, I might add.
In this third Baba Yaga book we are introduced to Bella, the Baba Yaga who watches over the forests and deserts of the Midwestern states. It was fun coming back to this series and seeing a modern take on the Baba Yaga of Slavic fairy tales. Since Baba Yaga lives in the forest in the old stories, Wickedly Powerful portrays a Baba in her most natural habitat amongst the trees and forest creatures.
It was a long wait for GRAVE VISIONS, the fourth in the Alex Craft series. Was it worth it? Yes! It took awhile to get back into the world-memories of what happened in the previous books coming back slowly as the plot progressed. In GRAVE VISIONS Alex is in more trouble and this time it involves a lot more time in Faerie than she’d like.
THIEF OF LIES had an interesting premise with teens being able to travel through the world by books in libraries around the world. That’s what drew me to the story and after I finished the book I felt overwhelmed with information about this world that I think I understand. Is this a world where the magical world is hidden like in HARRY POTTER?
WHAT A WEREWOLF WANTS is a cute, humorous, romance of which I’ve come to gladly expect from one of Kristin Miller’s books. While a tad predictable in the outcome the story was fun and a very quick and enjoyable read.
Minotaurs, Warlocks, and Bookworms, oh my! PARANORMAL CHAOS is chock full of mythological creatures and tons of epic battle scenes that I would love to see filmed on a massive screen. In this third and final book of the series we get to explore Marcus’ best buddy Steve’s world of the minotaur.
