Picking up where I left off yesterday, today’s batch of books include both fantasy and romance titles:
Fantasy – Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell and White Sand Volume 1 (graphic novel).
Romance – Fire in His Kiss (also fantasy), the new Beauty novella quartet (also fantasy), Sonata for a Scoundrel, and Wrong Turn, Right Direction.
Reviews are in order of date read. (My star ratings are explained here.)
Fire in His Kiss by Ruby Dixon
I reviewed the first book in Dixon’s newest post-apocalyptic dragons-on-Earth series last month and while it was enjoyable, I was left unimpressed with the world building and had hoped Dixon would start explaining why, or at least who, these dragons are. With Fire in His Kiss she managed to do just that.
“Emma pulls out her gun with shaking hands and points it at Dakh. ‘W-what the f*ck is he?'”
This book reveals quite a bit about the dragons’ past lives before they were forced onto Earth. The exact cause of the cataclysmic event called the Rift is still unknown, but that’s okay–for now. We also discover ways that non-fort dwellers are hiding from attracting the attention of dragons.
“This is about my survival, and I’m just going to have to suck it up. Women have been trading their bodies for safety ever since the Rift. I’m no different from any of them at the end of the day.”
