Review Copy Source:
Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right.

The goblins are coming.

From the moment my eyes met the first page I was attached to the story. The Characters are all wonderful to follow. There is plenty of action throughout the book that kept me wanting to read more and more, I couldn’t wait to find out what would come next. I loved the Mythology and the way that it plays into the story. It was wonderful to read the great relationship between Teagan and her brother Aiden, and I hope there will be another book so we can get some more into Teagan and Finn.

I give it 4/5 Stars

Review: Firewalker by Allyson James

Release Date: November 2, 2010
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Stormwalker Book #2
ISBN: #9780425237823
Genre:Paranormal Romance
Mick must face the dragon council for breaking their laws, and while he doesn't seem too worried about his upcoming trial, but Janet will do anything to keep him safe. She'll need a little help from her friends, old and new: Nash and Coyote; Cassandra, a powerful witch turned hotel manager; Colby a sort-of-trustworthy dragon. But now a new, dark power is stirring in Magellan that Janet must face, but even more frightening, one is stirring within herself. 

Janet has to deal with the emergence of her powerful Beneath magic that wants to turn her bad, murders taking place by a powerful being,  the Dragons and Micks Trial for allowing her to open a vortex and letting her live. We get to meet a new god the Koshare's who are like clowns with making people laugh and also provide mild punishment on bad behavior with jokes. Janet and Micks chemistry is fantastic. Nash is still a big pain in the butt but he really comes through in this book as being loyal and trustworthy. Coyote is as cryptic as ever and still very mysterious. If you liked book 1 Stormwalker, you should defiantly continue with Firewalker.

I give it 3.5/5 Stars
