Book Description:

When Endora is faced with her daughter’s terminal illness, she takes the only chance she’s got. She braves the potential risks and signs a mating contract with the Delradon Draekon Lords, intent on using the payment to buy the aliens’ cure to save her daughter’s life.

Lord Aldric Darragon rules over his land with an iron fist until one day the only woman who is genetically compatible with him agrees to his offer of mating. As his all-consuming passion for Endora explodes, an ancient threat looms heavy over humans and Delradons alike. With the lives of everyone he cares about hanging in the balance, Aldric has to fight the demons of his past if he wants to defeat the enemies of the present.

Publisher’s Note: This gripping sci-fi alien romance has it all: dragons, passion and tension. It also contains explicit themes and is intended for adults only.

My Review

This book appealed to me because Sci-Fi, dragons, etc – they typical for me. I liked the book. I like how the author writes. However the only thing I can really say is she seemed to write it in preparation for a Sci-Fi movie and/or show. Which in my opinion it would be a very good movie and/or show. I just don’t like when things are written for that purpose and usually refrain reading such books. Maybe I feel this way because of Endorra’s actions. I get why she was like that but really? I really wanted to slap her A LOT. I doubt I’ll read this series farther if Endorra is part of the main story line. I refuse to fall for another series where the female lead is a hypocritical idiot. Despite how Endorra is I like how the world was described. I love Aldric. If Endorra isn’t part of the main story line going forward I will read more.

Making Coordinating Squares

For the past few weeks I have been thinking about making coordinating squares for some of my square designs. Meaning making a ‘plain’ square that you could use to make a blanket with the original design. I decided to start with Roadside Flower. This coming week I’ll be adding the coordinating square for Roadside Flower. It will have no petals yet it will have the same stitch count on each side of the square.

I would like it if you can help me decide which square to make a coordinating square for next.

BOOK REVIEW: Shifter Bound

Title: Shifter Bound
Author: Leisl Leighton
Genre: Sci-fi, Fantasy
My Rating:

Book Description:

One pack, one coven, a destiny intertwined…

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

Shifter-Witch Eloise O’Brien has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is—the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.

My Review

Since I read Book 2 – Moon Bound – I have been wanting to read more about Eloise. How she deals with finding out she was more then she was raised to think of herself & to realize she was the mate of a lone wolf is what you would probably think a person would deal with IF they where open to such things. You can tell she wasn’t and she fought it until she was shown (by herself at that) she was this great witch & a shifter. How she fights to remain her own person and not let anyone have control over her magic again is heartbreaking.

Leisl Leighton is an awesome story teller. This whole series so far has me wanting to keep finding out more about other characters and read her other books.
