Reading Recommendations – Dragon Haven, by Robin Hobb (2010).

This is the second novel in Robin Hobb’s Rain Wild Chronicles series. It is just exeptional as the first too and has just as much danger, suspense and adventure as the first. A look into a world of Dragons, misfits, magic and change, Dragon Haven is a fantastic read from start to finish.

All fantasy fiction lovers should take a look at this.

Dragon Haven by Robin Hobb.

Blurb.

The dragon keepers and the fledgling dragons are forging a passage through the uncharted and treacherous waters of the Rain Wild River, supported by the liveship Tarman, its captain, Leftrin, and Alise Finbok, who has escaped her cruel marriage in Bingtown. They are searching for the mythical city of Kelsingra, hoping to find a safe haven away from the society that has rejected them.

When a vial of dragon blood can earn a man enough gold to last a lifetime, there may be some in the party who see the growing dragons as more valuable as body parts than whole and alive. But it is the Rain Wilds themselves – mysterious, unstable and ever perilous – that may provide the deadliest danger, one that will push them all to the very brink of survival.

Book Recommendations – Mage Slave by R. J. Thorns (2018).

A warrior prince, an enslaved mage, a plot to draw the world to war.. Sounds like Fantasy Fiction Heaven to me!

Mage Slave by R. J. Thorns.

Blurb.

Crown Prince Aven Lanuken wants something more than a trophy for a future wife. He wants a woman who will be more friend than follower. A queen who will be more warrior than diplomat. He wants a partner he can trust… with a dangerous secret that’s kept him trapped in a dark mountain fortress his entire life. Mage slave Miara wants something more, too—to find an enemy prince. And not to marry him. She’s just received orders for her very first kidnapping. She loathes the idea of it, and it’s probably a suicide mission. But she has never failed a mission before and doesn’t intend to start now. Of all the women in the world, why does he have to fall for this one ?To check this out on Kindle click here

Book Review: The Thief, by J. R. Ward (2018).

Blurb.

Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safe-cracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, who never meant to fall in love – and certainly not with a human. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?

As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?

Review.

The Thief is J. R. Ward’s latest instalment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and she does not disappoint either! Vishious and Doc Jane are one of my favourite couples, and the storyline in which makes their relationship stronger since the previous showed them drifting apart, really was good. I am glad that it didn’t end with devastation! Just as the relationship between Sola and Assail. They really make a great couple. Which of course makes an amazing storyline written by an amazing author.

The storyline that focuses on Throe, really has peaked my interest. An evil amongst their own kind is something the Black Dagger Brotherhood has dealt with before, however it was with the persuasion and interference off the Omega. This time it is the interference of something else entirely.

I have enjoyed this novel and I would recommend this book along with the entire series to anyone interested in the Vampire genre that is entwined with a little romance. Overall, I give this book a rating of 8/10 stars. I can’t wait till the next book is out!
