Book Description:

After returning home to Azeroth, Alleria Windrunner calls upon her estranged siblings—Sylvanas, the warchief of the Horde, and Vereesa, ranger-general of the Silver Covenant—to join her in a quest to retake their ancestral home, Windrunner Spire, from the undead who have overrun the place. On their journey, the three sisters will navigate both the dangers of the present and the ghosts of the past to discover if time and tragedy have divided them irrevocably—or if, despite everything, they are still a family.

My Review

I love Sylvanas. She is my utmost favorite character in any video game. I remember the first time I got the quest in WoW to take Sylvanas her necklace… it was sad. I also remember when I was somewhat upset Vareesa didn’t kill Garrosh Hellscream but I get why she didn’t. I always wondered about Alleria. I hoewever eneded up not liking Alleria at all. Especially after this read. I get why Sylvanas wants to raise her sisters but I think it will backfire on her somehow. This is a good read and it gives you a great overview of the past and makes you want to delve into the lore more. It is good they are finally focusing on the Windrunner Sister. The are wasn’t that great – but I suppose that is because we are used to seeing the sister in game & expect them to look like they do in game. This made the Sylvanas fangirl that lives inside me happy.

BOOK REVIEW: Touch Of Ice (Dawn of Dragons #1)


Title: Touch Of Ice (Dawn of Dragons #1)
Author: Mary Auclair
Genre: Sci-fi, Fantasy
My Rating:

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.
