Marked by Love: Zodiac Shifters - Taurus by Rosalie Redd


Marked by Love: Zodiac Shifters - Taurus by Rosalie Redd


A male from her past…forever marked by love.


Rogue Panthera shifter Aramond scouts for enemies on the outskirts of the Keep’s territory, home to his daughter and her mate. While on the prowl he encounters a female from his past, one who etched an unstoppable ache deep in his soul. As she opens old wounds and another rogue male enters her life, Aramond must overcome his fears and set aside both their pasts if he is to win her heart.


Danae runs a safe house, offering sanctuary to Panthera warriors in need. She tends their wounds, offers up a good meal and a place to rest, but keeps them at arms-length to protect her battered spirit still healing after the death of her mate. When Aramond, the sexy loner who’d captured her heart long ago resurfaces in her life, it will take all her will-power not to give in to the burning desire he ignites in her soul.

She held her breath.     5 BAKED COOKIES

 

Time seemed to slow.  This encounter will change my life…one way or another.  He was dangerous in an exciting, primal way.  She was forever imprinted in his memory.  Sugar and spice and everything nice. Indeed.   


What a FANGTASTIC story!  

I was blown away by just how PAWESOME every little aspect of it is!!   It's a fairly quick read, but don't let that fool you!  There is plenty of story, lots of action & romance and even a couple of fights too!  

With the vivid, lush descriptions, I truly felt like I could see, hear & feel everything just like the characters do!  


Rosalie has this way of telling her story that just brings it to life around you!  And those panther shifters - pardon me, Panthera - are so magical, so powerful, so cool and COMPLETELY FURRIFIC!!  Everything they can do, how they shift, their traits, the "Panthera Way" of how mates, newcomers and just how the Pride is run.  

I was instantly captivated with Danae, wanting to understand her & her fears, and it sure didn't take long before I was connected with her, totally living the story as her!  Then along comes Aramond... *dreamy sigh*  Oh he had me smitten from the start and I couldn't see how Danae was going to resist me!  But she did...until she didn't!  LOL  

I like to think I helped influence her to trust Aramond.  wink  

With Rosalie's captivating storytelling, wholly unique Pantheras, multifaceted characters and her enriched, detailed descriptions, my attention was immediately grabbed & pounced upon, and wasn't released until I reached 'The End'!!  

In fact, I was so intrigued & fascinated with the story and Rosalie's phenomenal talent, genuine gift and mad writing skills, I am now more eager than ever before to read ALL of her books as soon as possible!!  (I can't believe I have waited this long!!  *kicks self*)

Out Foxed: Zodiac Shifters -  (Sassafras Shifters Book 2) 

 by Melissa Snark


Music is his magic.
Silver is a coyote-shifter with criminal tendencies and a golden voice. As the lead singer and guitarist for an indie rock band, he is devoted to his craft, however his disreputable past is about to catch up with him. He owes a god a debt, and gods always collect.

She’s a real fox.
When Hannah Kelly’s despicable ex-lover takes her grandmother hostage, she must turn her expertise as a security professional to burglary. With her twin sister’s help, Hannah sets out to steal a priceless Norse artifact from a notorious Russian oligarch.

Two thieves. One prize. A chase so wild, the pursuer becomes the pursued.



REVIEW ~ 

 

I want you, my fox.    5 SILVER HANDCUFFS

 

And I'm going to have you.  You can't have me.  Run, little fox. I'll be right on your tail.  Don't chase me, Silver.  It's too dangerous.  OH COYOTE!  You're playing my song!  


This is anything BUT a one-hit wonder!  This is a melodious story I felt down deep in my bones and just like a favourite song, I can't get it out of my mind! (not that I want to!)  

It's tattooed itself on my heart!  Oh for Fox's sake!  I’ll stop dodging around it – This is one helluva SHIFTACULAR story!  I'll sing its praises as best as I can!!  


Right from the start I was captivated, caught in the story trap, LOVING it from beginning to end!  It's an amazing, funny, musical, suspenseful, romantic, scary, hot, Hot, Hot PURRFECT tail that is deeply enriched & enhanced by Melissa’s beautifully detailed, lush descriptions and storytelling!!  

The mythology aspect the Melissa incorporated into it fit the story like a glove!  Having the story blossom to life all around me and continuing to do so throughout the entire story was a rare & true treat!  


I was transported into Silver & Hannah’s World right away, intrigued by them, wanting to know more, loving the chance to meet Coyote, and while I wasn’t surprised to connect with and become Silver right away, I didn’t expect to BECOME Hannah before I even knew her name!  

I honestly don't think that I have EVER read a book where the author has put so much love, care, development and details into EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of the story!!  

The intersecting storylines, seemingly innocent or minor bits from the beginning that come back into play later on, the multifaceted characters that come complete with history, personality, secrets, and so much more and the way that almost ALL of the characters are also given that same development – to a lesser degree, of course – blew me away!  


It all flows impeccably & seamlessly within the story, combining beautifully together to enhance, enrich & add even more depth to Silver & Hannah's own Furry Tail!  

I kept waiting for Silver to say “CURSES!  OUTFOXED AGAIN!”  snicker  Melissa swept me into her story so thoroughly & completely it felt like I was living MY story, that Silver and Hannah were parts of me that I hadn't yet discovered, that I could shift into a Fox, into a Coyote, that I was capable of magic, could hear the melody playing in my mind, that I could create that melody!  YES!!  


I love, Love, LOVED this story from beginning to end and every place in between!  Melissa truly is one phenomenally talented and exceptionally gifted author!!    

I hope that she has plans to turn this into a series because I could - would LOVE - to stay, play, love & mate in this FURLICIOUS World for a very long time! 


So... How did one go about catching a fox that happened to be stalking a coyote? Think like a fox...

A Dragon's Treasure by Beverly Ovalle



Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.


Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.


Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.


Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.


REVIEW ~


He’d found his treasure   5 MATE MARKS

 

It was only a matter of time before he claimed her.  They were meant to be together after all.  It was a dragon thing.  he’s hunkalicious!  where have you been hiding him?  There is just something about him.  Just a kiss ignited her, sending her body up in flames.   how on earth was she going to resist him?  GREAT BURSTS OF DRAGON FIRE!  What a precious treasure this book is!!  I ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY love, Love, LOVE IT!!!  I was so excited, BEYOND ECSTATIC when I heard that there was a new Beverly Ovalle dragon book coming out!  I actually just finished reading Beverly's other 2 standalone Dragon books (for the umpteenth time!) - Dragon's Mate and Stealing Hope - and I completely love, Love, LOVE them both, but I have to say that A Dragon's Treasure has flown to the top as my favorite!!  It has so much "laugh until you cry" humor.  It's hot enough to melt my tablet.  The heartbreak and sad moments had me bawling.  The sweet & tender moments melted my heart. The suspenseful ones had me gnawing on my thumbs.  Then there's the multifaceted characters who all add another layer to the story, regardless if they are the main characters or minor ones.  The bossy, sexy as sin Kai.  The sassy, spunky Connie.  *dreamy sigh*  I love them both to pieces, especially the way I get to not only read their story, but experience & live it with them too!  The story itself is not only brought to life by Beverly's exceptional talent, but also by the way the rich, detailed storytelling enhances it all!  I actually thought - more like hoped -  my name was Connie for a moment or three... okay, pretty much every time Kai was involved!  wink   But what I love the most is how much story there is, the depth, the level of enrichment to all facets involved and how all of the different bits, parts, traits, aspects, etc. all blend beautifully & flawlessly together to create this Dragon Treasure of a story!!  Connie thought maybe, just maybe she shouldn’t have poked the dragon.  You’re going to kill me, but what a way to go.  Kai kissed her like there was no tomorrow. There would be though, he would make sure of it.

Zodiac Dragon Guardians Books 1-6 by Kim Faulks





Taurus (Guardians of the Stars book 1) by Kim Faulks


Marcus Kane is the first of twelve. Dragon-born in the sign of Taurus he carries all the traits of the bull–the good and the bad.

He’s strong-willed, unbreakable. Deadly on land and in the sky, but when Marcus falls in love, he falls hard.

He wasn’t meant to fall for the wolf, Abrial. His only job was to protect those he loves–his family.

Abrial is Alpha-born. The daughter of the Bloodstone’s pack Alpha, she will stop at nothing to defend what’s hers–every wolf–and every inch of her new found territory–and she’ll break all the rules to do it.

But when a rival pack moves in ready to spill blood, Abrial comes up against an enemy deadlier than she understands. So she turns to a stranger for help–a man who drove into a tree to save her. A man who smells like danger, but looks at her with fire in his eyes. Marcus Kane.



REVIEW ~

 

We were the guardians of the ancient gods.      5 RED ZODIACS

 

Be the bull and the dragon. Be fierce. Be strong, and most of all, be brave.  WOW!  Talk about one UNBULLIEVABLY ZODIACELICIOUS book!  This BLOODLETTERY PAWERFUL story gets top marks for originality, uniqueness and creativity!  Any preconceived notions I might have had before starting this book were shattered almost immediately!  It was NOTHING like I expected, and that is a FANTABULOUS thing and one of the many, Many, MANY things I love, Love, LOVE about this book!  I was intrigued and so very excited to read this book that once I started I couldn’t put it down until I reached those 2 nasty words I despise = The End!  It felt like I was almost hypnotized by the story, I was THAT enthralled with it, in it and by it!  In fact, I was also so wrapped up in the characters & action that I didn't even make review notes!!  So I went back and read it again!  It was just as FANGTASTIC the second time, if not even more so!  I don't even know how or where to begin to share my thoughts!  With everything that is going on in this story, every character, every single detail no matter how small or large, has its own role to play in bringing the Guardians of the Stars to life!  Kim’s writing style with her lush & vivid descriptions deeply enriches the story so much so that I feel like I can actually see the people, the trees & mansion, the sky, etc. and that I can actually hear & feel everything going on around me regardless if I am Marcus and/or Abrial!  The story is further enriched and given even more depth with Kim’s multifaceted characters that not only transported me into the story, I was submerged so deep into it to the point where I felt connected not only to Marcus & Abrial, but also with every other character who *appears* to be on my side of the good vs evil scale.  The characters are so commanding and well developed, it’s like they DEMAND I become them so that I truly LIVE their story, experience everything with them, share their pain, their happiness, their anger and rage, and every other facet possible!  The attention to detail, the complex & intricate storylines & characters are expertly interwoven together to create a... story? book? neither of those words are sufficient enough to give it justice.. it TRULY is a TAIL OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!!  Your line starts and ends with you.  Kim is the Creator!  The Creator of all things dark, shadowy, bright, full of life, soft, fluffy, hard, thorny, beautiful, intense, powerful… well… Kim is the Creator of EVERYTHING in this SHIFTACULAR Zodiac Dragon series!  To be able to write a book of this caliber, this complex, and yet still have it flow so smoothly from character to character, scene to scene, without being too complicated or busy, takes a astronomically talented author!  But to also have it be just one small sign of the much larger Zodiac picture (not that I'm saying Marcus is small!) also needs an exceptionally gifted author.  Kim Faulks is that author!!  And that’s no bull! wink  I thought the saying went "red bull gives you wings" not "red bull HAS wings" LMBO   I cannot tell you how happy I am to read a darker, shadowy kind of story that is intense, fast but perfectly paced and that is also the first in the series of what I am hoping is at least 12 books long!  After all, there are 12 Zodiac signs. :-)  Since I am a very impatient reader, my initial plan was to hold off until a few books were released so that I could do a mini binge read and not have to wait on releases.  HA!  Now that I have read it – twice - I couldn’t wait any longer and started & finished Aquarius immediately after I finished Taurus and will happily and enthusiastically devour - I mean read - them again & again with each new release in this scrumptious Guardians of the Stars series!  There will be a sacrifice. There will be blood… and there will be torment. Are you ready for that?

Aquarius (Guardians of the Stars book 2) by Kim Faulks


This is an alternate cover edition for B01HKEDAUA 


A Zodiac Dragon Series so hot it will scorch the pages.

Victor Kane followed his brother into battle against the Echo pack, but it wasn't his brother who brought him back. It was the one they called the lone wolf, the seer, the strange one--Odessa.


Victor's the second of twelve Guardians. Dragon-born in the sign of Aquarius, he carries all the traits of his sign--the good and the bad. He's the guarded one, the one with a cool head, the one his family turns to when all hell breaks loose--and his family needs him more than ever. His brother is missing. His family is torn. But his world is consumed by the wolf, Odessa. Why would she risk her life to save him? Why would she care?


Odessa is damaged from a demon's blade meant for Victor. Although he's safe, her demons still consume her. The evil she's done has come back to haunt her, and Odessa will not only have to fight to survive, she must also protect the one she loves. Her dragon--Victor.


Family. Honor. Love.

What happens when those three collide?

Who will be left standing?

Who will be left heartbroken? 



REVIEW ~

 

I failed her.       5 BLUE ZODIACS


This wolf saved me and I’d failed her.  I was supposed to be the Guardian. I was supposed to be the protector.  We once had purpose; we once had a reason to live.  HOLY ZODIAC DRAGONS!  WHAT AN ABSO-AQUARIUS-LUTELY PHENOMENAL BOOK!!  Right from the start I was completely immersed in the story, enthralled, held tightly, but carefully, in its claws straight through to The End!  I was so excited when I found out this book was going to focus on Odessa because for whatever reason, she captured my attention & piqued my curiosity!  But by the time I was on about page 2 or 3 of her first chapter, she had my heart, my sympathy, my admiration, my pride even, and my love!  And all of that strengthened throughout!  As for Victor... well!  Victor brought out a lot of the same feelings, with different degrees of course, as well as for different reasons, but I most loved his Knight in Blue Scaled Armour trait!  But as to WHY that is, you will have to read this for yourself!  wink  This book picks up EXACTLY where the last one left us!  Can you just imagine how ZODIACELICIOUS it will be to read this series in its ENTIRETY FROM BOOK 1 TO BOOK 12 (I AM HOPING) ONE AFTER THE OTHER, AFTER THE OTHER UNTIL THERE ISN'T ANYMORE TO READ!?!  SQUEEEEEE  I am shaking, panting and leaking just thinking it!!!  THAT is how much I love, Love, LOVE this series so far!!!!!  As powerful as the first book is, I didn't expect, didn't think it would be PAWSSIBLE to top it, but this book does and in EVERY DRAGONTASTICAL way possible!  Having the story told in first person, combined with Kim's astronomical talent, true gift and her enriching, shadowy dark & FURRIFIC writing style, had me connected to Odessa & Victor in ways that are too hard to explain, to define even, but it affected me soul deep, wringing me emotionally dry and filling my heart beyond capacity!  I cried more times than I can count, but smiled just as much too!  Having been granted the endless pleasure of being able to read books 1 & 2 together without any of that pesky waiting on it to be released, and no matter how much I love Taurus, I can see & feel the increased strength, passion, force and PAWER behind the words, behind the characters, as well as the difference between the books and the stories they are telling.  I can now see that Taurus had a major dual purpose – tell Marcus & Abrial’s story AND set up the rest of the series!  So even though Marcus & Abrial got their story, their romance if you will (trust me!  It is much, MUCH more intense than “just” a romance!), it was also all about establishing everything - the characters, the world they live in, the various types of species, as well as the histories of the Guardians, the shifters, their worlds even, giving us everything we need, when we need it so we aren't bombarded & overwhelmed with everything!  But with Aquarius, we get more story, more exploration of the characters, more focus on Odessa & Victor and how they are interconnected, WHY Odessa and Victor are protective of each other even though they have barely even met, why they have this connection, and more!  Having this book shift gears means more focus on the power, magic, friends, family, love and the value of it all.  It’s like the stars aligned in the universe to bring Wolf and Dragon together, regardless if it is what each other needs, or even the world needs right now!  With Kim’s talent being so immeasurable it’s off the Dragon scale, it’s IMPAWSSIBLE to NOT become attached to the characters, to live their story with them, even AS them, which of course deepens the ENTIRE reading experience!  I wouldn’t change a thing!  Nor could I ask for anything more!  Except for more SHIFTACULAR books having already been released before I discovered them!  wink  Like Taurus before it, Aquarius consumed me wholly, utterly & completely - mind, body, spirit and soul, on every level, on every plane!  I’m not going to give up on you. Do you hear me?

Cancer (Zodiac Dragon Guardians book 3) by Kim Faulks


Dark, Sexy. Powerful. This Zodiac Dragon Series will scorch the pages.  


Humans are running scared—it’s not just the wolves they fear now—it’s the winged monsters who’ve lived amongst them. 


Those humans in power do the only thing they know—perceive the threat, and then move to eliminate them. 


Evander's the third of twelve. 

Dragon-born in the sign of Cancer he carries all the traits of his sign—the good and the bad. 

He's the compassionate one, he’s the one who puts others before himself, the one his family has turned to when the humans invade their home and expose who they really are. 


But that isn’t all they have to fear. 


They’ve been given an ultimatum: their brother, Zadoc, for the seer, Odessa.

 And time for their brother is running out. 


Only one woman can help them now. 

A human on a mission of her own. 

A woman who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the most terrifying of their kind and smirk in their faces.


Former Marine Gunnery Sergeant, Regan Rivers. 



REVIEW ~


She was the thunder.    5 GOLD ZODIACS

 

She was the storm.  But she wasn’t the kind you ran from.  She was the kind you chased.  Shadows and citrine—that’s what this man…this shifter was.  WHOA!!  What a deliciously dark & wondrous tale of family, love and the fight for what's right, the fight for those who can't fight and the fight for EVERYTHING!!  This is the third book in this series and while I love the other 2 books, for some reason this one drew me in in a whole different way and never let me go!  With his honest, trusting, almost innocent like persona, his soul even, I fell for Evander right away!  There is just something about him that intrigued me.  Gunny had me intrigued from the beginning with her fight, her hardness and the inner vulnerability she hides... until she doesn't!  That mix of strength & heart called to me, drawing me deep, so deep into this story!  Their pain became my pain.  Their happiness became my happiness.  Their laughter, tears, love & sorrow all became mine too.  Kim truly is one phenomenally talented and exceptionally gifted author!  Her ingeniously darkly beautiful & captivating writing style transports you into the story where you become her multifaceted characters, experiencing everything with, for & as them, engaging and involving you in her powerful & heartfelt stories like never before!  I was - AM - completely, wholly & utterly consumed mind, body, heart & soul!!  Until the fire burns out.

Victor, Dragon-born in the sign of Aquarius, feels this pain deeper than the frigid December winds.

REVIEW ~


It’s for Christmas. It’s for the kids.      5 GOLD PRESENTS

 

We have to give them a Christmas they deserve. We have to be a family.  AWWWW!  What a beautiful and amazing and DRAGONTACULAR Christmas story filled with friends, family and love!  LOTS of LOVE!!!  Of course it wouldn't be a Zodiac Dragon story without some pain and trouble, but even that was because of love!  And "fixed" with love too!  I actually was surprised by who "told" the story, but it fits!  I don’t think that anyone else could have made this story as special as it is though, so Kim definitely knows what she is doing!  wink  (not that I had any doubts mind you!)  I will say that my heart broke with one character, but exploded with love because of a couple others!  But in typical Kim Faulks & true Zodiac Dragon Guardians style, this has definitely set the scene for what's to come!  There is a lot more I want to say, but I think that this story will speak for itself and make even the Grinch smile!  So enough about that - Enjoy this Christmas story that is a beautiful reminder of what the true meaning of Christmas is and is filled with enough Christmas spirit to make even the grouchy Dragons smile & warm even the coldest of hearts!!  in this moment I finally understood…we were a family.  as long as we are together the family is strong.  This Christmas was our chance to start anew.

Aries (Zodiac Dragon Guardians book 4) by Kim Faulks

 

She was a siren amongst an ocean of terror. One fragile woman, fighting to survive...fighting to be heard.  

And Zadoc Kane heard her with every fiber of his being. 


Zadoc's the fourth of twelve Guardians. Dragon-born in the sign of Aries, he carries all the traits of his sign—the good and the bad.  

He's the protector, the hard-headed stubborn ram. He's brave and noble with a vicious temper, and he has littered his family's mountain with the bodies of those who've harmed the weak. 

And as the rival Echo pack descends on his home to kill his family, he plans on adding to the count. 


Until a voice stops him in his tracks...a human woman amongst a sea of wolves. 


Zadoc has a choice, fight alongside his kin...or sacrifice everything to protect her. 

But the choice was never his to make. 


His Dragon, the Wretched, will make it for him.  

Family. Honor. Love. 

What happens when those three collide? 

Who will be left standing? 

Who will be left heartbroken? 


REVIEW ~


Zadoc was no wolf—he was Dragon.    5 FIERY HEARTS

 

I was playing with danger, flirting with death.  I free fell into destiny.  But I had more at stake here—I had my heart.  Love would fight. Love would surrender.  I only hoped love would find a way to win.  HOLY DRAGON FIRE!!  What a great story!   No, no!  That doesn't do it justice!  More like - WOW OH WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!  WHAT A TRULY FANGTASTICALLY WRETCHED BOOK!!  (Get it? Because the name of Zadoc's Dragon is The Wretched... )  I was on edge the entire time, hoping for something good, cursing when it didn't come!  But MAN!  When it DID happen, it was so overwhelmingly ARIESOME I could hardly see through the tears to keep reading!  And there was a LOT tears!  Tears of happiness, tears of relief, tears of sorrow, tears of... well, you get the idea!  However, the tears flowed like Niagara Falls at the almost end of the book!!  I want to say more, but I have double-zipped my lips & fingers so that no spoilers sneak out!!!  I honestly have to say that this is The Best Zodiac Dragon Guardians book yet!  For whatever reason, I was intrigued with Zadoc, The Wretched and Joslyn pretty much from the first time I met them (in earlier books), and was eagerly awaiting their story, but I honestly did not expect to connect and BECOME them as deeply as I did!!  In fact, I connected with them the most intensely out of all of the others before them!!  Expertly wielding her phenomenal talent, Kim transported me back into her deeply enriched Zodiac Dragon Guardians World, while her perfectly detailed, lush descriptions brought it all to life around me!  I totally feel like Kim really amped up her game with Zadoc & Joslyn's story!  I loved how it connected & joined with the other books, since it was happening at the same time as book 3 - Evander & book 4 - A Roaring Fire (included with this book as well!), but now we have the other side of it, rounding out some key points perfectly!!   Like I said, there are so many parts, pieces & aspects to it that this is without a shadow of a Dragon... errr, doubt, my ABSO-DRAGON-LUTELY FAVORITE BOOK in this series!!

Alpha (Zodiac Dragon Guardians book 5) by Kim Faulks


The first mistake they made was slaughtering her pack. 

The second was taking her to the compound where she was rescued, along with Joslyn and the Dragon, Zadoc. 

They won’t live long enough to make mistake number three.  

All the Marine combat techniques in the world never trained Alpha to care for X. 

He took her in, fed her, clothed her…yearned for her. 

But the one thing he failed to do was keep her safe. 

Those who meant X harm were ready and waiting. 

They won’t need to wait long.  

Alpha had killed in the line of duty. 

He’ll do it all again and more. 

Because he’s coming for them. 

They won’t know it, not until it’s too late. 

This is the salvation of X.  

Family. Honor. Love. 

What happens when those three collide? 

Who will be left standing? 

Who will be left heartbroken? 



REVIEW ~

 

I got you, X…you’re safe.      5 GOLD TOMAHAWKS

 

don’t leave me…not again…never again.  He made me feel safe. He made me feel protected.  And he made me feel…  he was the one worth dying for…he was the one worth fighting for.  Dance little wolf…dance.  HOLY DANCING WOLVES, ALPHA!  WOW!  WHOA!  WOW!!  JUST... WOW!  OH FOR FAULKS SAKE!  Talk about one helluva force to be reckoned with!!  This is one ALPHANTASTIC book!!  I need a moment to collect my thoughts....   Okay, it's been an entire 3 days and I STILL can't gather & sort out my thoughts & feelings about Alpha & X's story, to articulate it all out, because it honestly has made that much of an impact on me!  There is so much I want to say, need to say, but I don't want to say too much & spoil it for you!  Let me start with X marks the spot!!  The spot she & Alpha carved into my heart, that is!!  This one is a little different from the books before it, but that same intensity, nail-biting, hang-on-to-the-edge-of-your-seat/tablet/book, suck you right in, chew you up, spit you out and leave you on your knees begging for more while profusely thanking Kim for the pleasure of it all!  And it IS a pleasure!  With her darkly beautiful storytelling the story explodes to life, you become the characters while they become you, drawing you in so deep you have no idea where they begin & you end!  This truly is one ABSO-FAULKSING-LUTELY captivating, forcefully potent, powerfully emotional story like no other!  I said after finishing Aries (book 4) that it was my favorite yet, but Alpha has wormed its way up to sit there beside Aries to share that title of My Favorite Zodiac Dragon Guardians Book!  I loved Aries and the way that the strength & the power of love shone throughout, lighting up the dark, and while that power and strength is in this book too, it has to be discovered, uncovered and fought for every. step. of. the. way.  I ugly cried - flat-out BAWLED - through a good portion of the last third or so of the book!  The power, the beauty of it, the ugliness of it, the emotion.. the LOVE.. it all just poured into me, transformed me, showing me my story through the eyes of others... I mean, the way it all drew me in, sucked me through the Portal, caging me, chaining me to it, not letting go until I BECAME the story, BECAME Alpha, BECAME X and truly lived every. single. breath. with them. FOR THEM.  Kim truly is an author who is so phenomenally talented it lights up even the darkest of shadows throughout all of her books!  I love, Love, LOVE Kim’s writing style, the way her books are so enriched and with this depth to them that makes them “thinking books” meaning that everything is not explicitly spelled out for you, which draws you in ever deeper, making you feel like you are personally invested in how it all plays out, like you actually have a say in it all!  I said that Kim had amped up her game with Aries (book 4) but now after finishing Alpha, I think it’s safe to say that Kim has dug deep and found that extra something-something, making her writing even MORE ALPHA-STRONG and Alpha proves that point in both the characters and OUR blood, sweat and tears!!  Okay mostly my tears, but you get the point!!  I truly am/am truly, wholly, utterly, COMPLETELY CONSUMED - mind, body, heart, soul and spirit!!  You have not broken me…you have not won.  I am alive.  I am here…and I am coming for you.

Virgo (Zodiac Dragon Guardians book 6) by Kim Faulks

 

Dark, Sexy. Powerful. This Zodiac Dragon Series will scorch the pages.  


Michael's the fifth of twelve Guardians. 

Dragon-born in the sign of Virgo, he carries all the traits of his sign—the good and the bad. 

He’s practical and kind. The one with pure purpose—and until now that purpose has been to keep his family together. 


Until he finds a letter foretelling the arrival of a vicious dark mage—the same b*tch who’d tortured his brother, Zadoc. And who’s now taken Zadoc’s babies hostage. 


A letter addressed to one of his kin… 


The Bloodletter. 


Did Marcus know the war was coming? Could he have changed the course of history and saved them all? 


Michael sets out in search of the truth and finds himself drawn to one person. 


A flawed mortal human… 

A doctor who refuses to surrender—even when she stares down a vicious brood of Vampires with two very special babies in her arms—Doctor Angel Leigh. 


REVIEW ~


This was no man—no mortal.     6 IMMORTAL HEARTS

 

He was Dragon.  The Saint and the sinner.  I wanted to belong and so help me, I wanted someone to belong to me.  It was my mouth she felt, my heart…my soul.  She had everything in her hands.  The vision is coming.  She’ll need you.  Don’t leave her behind.  She’ll need you, Michael.  HOLY MOUNTAIN OF ALL THINGS HELLISH & AWESOME!!!!  Of course the perfect mix of both so it all seems awesome in the end!  This truly is one FANTABULOUS book that took me on one intense adventure after emotional roller coaster after another!!  The way that EVERY THING & EVERY ONE from EVERY book leading to this one, came together, how every dark place was lit up by The Saint's light, how so much was discovered, so much lost, so MANY lost, but all the important ones "found"... IT IS ABSO-VIRGO-LUTELY ONE HELLUVA DRAGON TAIL AND SO MUCH MORE!!!  I have read, lived, experienced, felt everything with, for and as the 2 main characters for each book, and while they almost always appear in some form or another in the books that follow theirs, it feels to me like they ALL played a very powerful & emotional role in this one, leaving me feeling even more raw than they usually do!  Michael is like this background character because he is so quiet, so mild-mannered, that I hardly remember him from the prior books, but I think that is one of the reasons I loved him so much!  I connected to him, with him, understood him and found out just why he is who he is!  As for Doc Angel...well I thought I understood her, had her and her angle figured out...until I got to be her!  Michael & Angel DEFINITELY held my heart in their hands, kept me awake reading their story, and even with ALL of that nail biting, holding my breath intensity, the gasping, bawling, smiling, laughing and everything else, I love, Love, LOVE THIS BOOK!!  In fact, even though Kim put me - and the characters - through the emotional, suspenseful, wringer, I have to say that this is my favorite book so far AND Kim's best one yet!!  To live, experience & feel what the characters are, takes a talented author, but to have me feeling like I was also experiencing what the author herself was going through while writing this book, well that only happens with a phenomenal author who is also blessed with an exceptional, true gift...and Kim is that author!!!  With her unparalleled talent, the complexity of the storylines in each book and over the entire series and her deeply enriched, darkly beautiful storytelling that draws me in like no other, Kim has me so incredibly enthralled and addicted to this series and to these characters!!  As much as I want to have all of the books NOW, I love that Kim takes the time to create the perfect story each & every single time!  The wait is so worth it!  He was my light in the darkness.  My strength when I was weak.  He was my healer, my lover, my protector—my savior.
