Cranky Author Reviews: The Last Dragon by Artemis Milchon

Spoilers
*Copy received in exchange for an honest review.
This was a great love story. I enjoyed the story despite the sometimes hard to follow wording. This is the story of Drake and 'Sally' or Salvation...

Sally is a down trodden woman who is constantly treated like a modern day cinderella by her step siblings who are a bunch of a--holes...

She goes to a club with her two step sisters under duress and ends up getting kidnapped by Mach and Turbo (two of the elementals- a race of beings from another planet) and brought home to save their friend who's dying. 

Enter Drake––who's a dragon elemental of course––and Sally finds out he is being poisoned by a dart and saves him. Then he falls in love with her...

I didn't like the way the author jumped from one head to another in several places because for a moment I would end up a little lost...This as well as the sometimes unbelievable non-reactions to situations lost a bit for me but otherwise I liked this story.

All in all I enjoyed the story even if there were parts of it that lost points for me I was still interested enough to read the whole book and I did like it...

So for me this was a SEPE or 4 star read because I would like to see less of the jumping from head to head and the slightly unbelievable parts...

Cranky Author Reviews: Wild Blue Yonder by Megan Tayte

Spoilers
          Book 3 of Ceruleans series...

This book was interesting...you discover what "heaven" looks like. Only it's more of a prison than heaven.

It starts with a strange cult like following of a woman who seems caring but isn't. The whole purpose becomes about making contact with her sister to "save" her. Missing Luke and with a broken heart she has to pretend that Jude is the one she wants for the cult like leader Evangeline. 


I didn't like that she had to basically agree to be that person Evangeline wanted her to be in order to get what she wanted. A way off the island...I hate when people are held against their will it's not any fun.

Although I wasn't sure I would like this book by the end I was a bit more of a fan. I'm a die hard romantic as we all know...hence my career choice, but by the end I was on board.

It seems like the more answers there are the more questions I find about this world the author has created in her series. Any who, they finally catch up to sister dearest to save her only to discover she isn't willing to be saved because she wants to be with the Fallen...so she murders someone in front of them losing her soul and their ability to want her in their lives. It was sad because the truth comes out about Jude...He's in love with her sister...awww. So sad that's going to have to resolve in the next books in order for me to like the rest of the series...

I hope that the author either gives him someone he can love or makes it so that she gets saved somehow because otherwise my reviews for these book may be mixed lol...because––DIE HARD ROMANTIC here.

All in all i give this one a EPE or a 5 star read because it answered some of the questions I had but left me with others...the ending was what really got me to loove it...because she got to be with Luke.
