Skydreamer

by Sheryl Winters

BLURB:

Jaden is one in a million, a fire talent capable of bonding with a fire Esprit and creating fireballs of enormous proportions.

Draven Winterbourn is the devilishly handsome king of the Dragon-Changers, capable of changing into an enormous dragon. A man responsible for keeping the laws of his people.

When the two meet it was more than fate, it was true love.

So how can everything go so wrong between a couple who love so much?

excerpt

He wasn’t kidding. He really can’t cook.

 

Isla and I grimace our way through burnt steak and eggs. I’m so used to Esmay burning my meals, I have no problem swallowing it, but Adania is another matter. She folds her arms and refuses to eat what is served. By the time breakfast is over, I decide never to let him cook again.

 

Draven offers seconds and thirds, which we politely refuse. He polishes off the remains, inhaling his food the way Isla does ice water, his leg jammed tight against mine. “Grab your things. It’s time to find the shops,” Draven says as we pile our dishes into the sink. He flaps a dismissive hand at us. “Don’t worry about those. The cleaning people will be here soon. They’ll take care of them.”

 

I draw on the tight cloth jacket I’ve been using for the last three years, poking my fingers through the hole in my pocket for fun, while Isla wrestles Adania’s shoes onto her.

 

Draven surprises us by picking Adania up and hoisting her onto his shoulders.

 

“Lookie, Jaden, Isla!” she squeals, her excited giggle ringing through the hallway. “I’m taller than you!”

 

Isla stops at her apartment to get her hand bag and Draven pulls three glowing light green orbs out of one of his pocket. “Preset and ready to go, so you three won’t get lost on your way home.” He gives an apologetic shrug. “I’m almost out, or we’d use them to get there, too.”

 

The Orbs are so malleable, I have to resist the urge to sink my fingers into them. I slide them into my good pocket next to the gold before carefully pulling my fingers out, so I won’t touch them too much.

 

Draven lowers Adania to the floor and fiddles with the lock as Isla catches up with us. “Jaden, do you still have that coin purse I gave you?”

 

I pull the heavy leather pouch out of my pocket and hold it out for him.

 

“Good. You’ll need it today.”

 

review2

 

Jaden is a rare fire talent, born with twin sister garnishing an ice talent. Together, they are raising their baby sister following the deaths of their parents. They are destitute and forced to succumb to the wants and needs of their uncle. Everyone has a breaking point ant the twins finally reach theirs, making the decision to leave and make a life with their little sister.
This book was very complex in that it was clear the author put a lot of thought into this alternate “universe/planet” right down to the smallest of details. There are sexy dragon shifters, romance and a whole lot of suspense. For me it was a slower start and there were a couple of times I had to go back and re-read because of all the players, but overall this is a five fanger. I would suggest though, if you are a binge reader, to start this early in the morning so you are not up late as you might get overwhelmed with all the players when you have a drowsy mind. 5 fangs

  1. Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

    • Hello Mai, I think so. I’ve bought books based off covers before. I do try to find the ones with reviews that “click” with my overall impression of the story though.

  2. Great excerpt.

  3. The book sounds interesting.

  4. Thank you for sharing. I’m so glad you enjoyed reading it!

  5. Terrific excerpt! The cover and title are awesome! Thank you for the great post and contest!

  6. Such a wonderful excerpt! This line is enough to compel you to read the book: So how can everything go so wrong between a couple who love so much? Exceptional!

  7. Great post! Thank you for sharing!
