     "We rocketed into the mid-day sky. In the sheer panic of going from pavement to clouds in less than six seconds, I'd pressed my face into the curve of his neck and shoulder, cursing profusely under my breath. "

*     *     *

     "The Gladium Province is on the verge of civil unrest as humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, clash once more. But amid disorder can also arise passion.
     When the bodies of three human women are discovered in Morgon territory—with the DNA of several Morgon men on the victims—it’s just a matter of time before civil unrest hits the Province. But for ambitious reporter Moira Cade, it’s more than just a story, and it may mean risking her own life.
     Descending into the dark underworld of Morgon society, Moira is paired with Kol Moonring, Captain of the Morgon Guard, for her protection. Fiercely independent, Moira bristles at his dominance, and defies his will at every turn. Yet resistance proves futile when passion flares between them, awakening powerful emotions within both, body and soul. But as the killings continue, can their fiery newfound bond survive an even greater evil—one that threatens all of humanity, Morgonkind, and Moira’s very soul?"

    1. I gave a quote that tells very little of what the story is about. :) I hope it intrigued you enough to check it out.

  3. Although I'm not a big sci-fi/fantasy fan, I'm curious about the world this author has created. Sounds amazing!
    My Friday post features SOMETHING ABOUT MAUDY.

    1. It is a pretty unique world. Happy weekend. :D

  4. The summary and snippet sounds excellent! Thanks for sharing!

    1. The book is much better than the cheesy cover. :p

  5. After I got over peeing my pants, I'd probably enjoy the flight. LOL That was very physical. I almost felt like I was lifting up.
    One to check out, for sure.
    My 56 -

    1. No kidding, I am terrified of heights, not sure I would enjoy it that much, I'd end up passing out or something.

  6. I love dragon-anything! :-)
    LOVE the cover!
    Happy weekend!

    1. Me too, as long as it's done right, and this is done right. I finished the book earlier today and I'm posting the review tomorrow.
