Dragonheart (The Lost Kingdom of Fallada Book 6)
by Alicia Michaels
Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy/Paranormal & Urban/Mermaids/Werewolves & Shifters
Centuries ago, the only dragon left in Fallada perished—succumbing to a disease caused and spread by black magic. The last of the eggs failed to hatch, becoming like stone and remaining that way … until Sonia Jones discovered her true identity as a lost princess of the otherworldly kingdom.
A tomboy who once suffered from a chronic illness, Sonia doesn’t feel like princess material. Unlike her royal siblings, she has yet to discover her supernatural abilities. With war brewing in Fallada between good and evil, she hardly feels equipped to join her people on the side of good … even though an ancient prophecy clearly points to her as a savior of the realm.
Her purpose finally becomes clear when the dragon eggs in her possession hatch. The creatures seem to trust her, growing and becoming stronger under her care—inspiring her to undergo her own quest to unlock her latent abilities. Along the way, she will stumble upon a way to save her mother and their people—but it may require her to endanger the first dragons the kingdom has seen in hundreds of years. Can Sonia find the strength to fulfill her prophecy and rescue her mother, while protecting Fallada’s most rare and precious creatures?

When a young woman vanishes without a trace, her heartbroken parents turn to the last prospect they can find for hope: Autumn Rain. Autumn reads imprints—emotions left behind on certain objects. Only she can shed light on their daughter’s last thoughts.
But Autumn’s ability makes her life difficult. Everyday activities like opening a door or holding a friend’s keys can send her into turmoil. It doesn’t help that the infuriating Detective Shannon Martin, who Autumn has helped on cases, usually treats her more like a suspect than a consultant. Too often Autumn finds herself retreating to her antiques shop and the company of her best friend, Jake Ryan, to avoid notice.
Private detective Ethan McConnell, whose widowed sister has gone missing under similar circumstances, also comes to Autumn for help, but her involvement sets in motion a series of events that risk not only her own life, but the lives of those she cares about most.

Bound by a Dragon sweeps the reader far from the modern world into a world of castles, medieval markets and fantastical romance.
Avenging angels aren’t a new story, but SC Cunningham’s The Deal delivers a fresh spin with a grittier, edgy feel.
Tenacious Amy Fox ends up in the afterlife and due to a deal she made with God, she’s an avenging angel circumventing and defeating evil on every front.
Driven by the memory of the horrible sexual violence she suffered as a preschooler, overzealous doesn’t even begin to describe Amy. Angel, though she may be, Amy holds nothing but contempt for those who deal and profit from human suffering—specifically, human trafficking—and goes above and beyond to dispense with the lowlifes who always seem to slip through the cracks of justice. Her memories also lead Amy to hold tight to hopes of revenge against her abuser, the appropriately named Richard ‘Dick’ Parker. and the chance at a little vigilante justice.
No one said angels were perfect—although they could use a few less F-bombs.
New partner Jack, a fallen angel, is supposed to keep Amy in line… but that never happens. HA! Someone needs to keep Jack in line! He’s adorable even if his psyche was kicked around by life, but the connection from the past he shares with Amy is a mind bender. Didn’t see that coming!
Amy Fox is a great protagonist. She is far from perfect, but I love the fact she’s unapologetic. All too often, male anti-heroes are accepted as being ill-natured, overbearing, rough-talking rule-breakers. When a female lead is portrayed similarly, there’s something ‘wrong’ with her… there’s a reason for her ‘flaw’ and she needs to be ‘fixed’.
Whatever. Amy is still learning the craft of keeping mortals safe, but she won’t apologize for being a bit heavy-handed.
Familial connections are revealed that gave me pause over how the whole good/evil thing mingles so closely together. They also made me wonder if I could kill Gregori myself – HA! But as much as I despise him, my ugh character in The Deal is Mara. UGH!
The Deal is not for the faint of heart. It shows the worst of some of the worst, but excellent writing keeps the violence in its proper perspective and keeps the reader swiping pages. The ending made me smile… and exhale, but also made me aware this wild ride is just getting started. It’s a ride I wholeheartedly recommend!
