Sinister Magic ´ K like this one is going to like me Worse than that he wants to use his magic to compel me to do his bidding as if I’m some weak minded minion That’s not going to happen I’d die before being some dragon’s slave But if I can’t figure out a way to avoid him save my boss and get rid of the government spook I’m screwed Or dead Or screwed and dead And that’s never comfortab. “Here” I set the container of bath beads down beside Zav’s foot “Throw some of those down when you get a chance”I backed away slowly not wanting the dark elves to notice “And try to keep them distracted Keep saying arrogant things” Zav looked over his shoulder pinning me with his glare “I do not take orders from law breaking mongrels who do not acknowledge the supremacy of dragons” “Yeah say stuff like that” I gave him a sarcastic thumbs up “You’re a natural” This book was a lot of fun Urban fantasy with a funny older heroine I laughed a whole lot READ & DOWNLOAD Û eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Lindsay Buroker

Lindsay Buroker ✓ 7 SUMMARY ??ve always been able to handle my problems with aplomb Maybe some cursing and swearing too but definitely aplomb That changes when my boss is afflicted with a mysterious disease a government agent starts investigating me and a godforsaken dragon shows up in the middle of my latest job I’ve taken down vampires zombies and ogres but dragons are way way powerful And it doesn’t loo. 37 starsWhy oh why does one of my most favorite authors jump on the YA 1st person narration bandwagon It’s so sad I could cry Half elf Val is a government contracted assassin fighting magical criminals When she crosses paths with a dragon on one of her missions she earns his scorn by killing the magical creature he intended to bring to dragon courtMeanwhile her commanding officer was magical poisoned and is dying Val goes on a uest to find an antidote This story has the main ingredients that I loved most in Lindsay Buroker’s books a strong and confident heroine and an even stronger yet somewhat hostile male hero – awesome Nevertheless it took me than half into the story until I was hooked Let’s face it only when the dragon appeared on the pages I didn’t get distracted by something interesting to do like dusting my book shelvesSome facts were repeated again and again as if the reader didn’t get the point at least the second timeBut I was good at this job better than anyone else around and with my fast healing and ability to sense magic I was the ideal person to send after the magicalA lot of the humor was very childish and ill placed giving it an unreal feeling While Val standing up to the dragon was admirable at times it was also unbelievably stupid Being told in first person made her also exceptional arrogant However there were some absolute highlights like when Val tells Zav during a battle“And try to keep them distracted Keep saying arrogant things” Zav looked over his shoulder pinning me with his glare “I do not take orders from law breaking mongrels who do not acknowledge the supremacy of dragons” “Yeah say stuff like that” I gave him a sarcastic thumbs up “You’re a natural”I wished humor would have been reduced to these scattered highlightsThe world building was somewhat incomplete Set in the contemporary real world it was unclear how much humans knew about magical creatures living among them sometimes it seemed to be common knowledge other times not so muchWhen the book picked up in the second half I was ready to forgive some of the annoying parts and I do have to admit that it is difficult for any book character to compare to the adventures of Amaranthe and Sicarius The Emperor's Edge or Alisa and Leonidas Star Nomad by Lindsay BurokerPros The dragon character Zav Some kick ass fighting The dragon character Zav The vampire whom I hope to meet again The dragon character Zav Lindsay Buroker’s awesome writing when not pre occupied with giving characters uirkiness that is over the top The dragon character Zav A neat wrap up of the storyline with general uestions staying open for future books in the series but the plot line of this book being closedCons First person narration The humor was despite some really funny dialogs often childish and really than necessary and some of the jokes like arrogant dragon talk or irritated tiger talk got old after a while First person narration I found the meetings with the shrink not story enhancing First person narration I actually got downright bored around the meeting time with mom First person narration Does the female hero really have to have asthma This is so weird First person narrationHumor 3 starsGeneral writing style 5 starsStory line idea 5 starsStory line execution 3 starsPlot 3 starsAnnoy factors present3 starsNarration 1st person female protagonist’s POVMain Location contemporary SeattleRomance none I just saw in reviews that some readers expected romance or at least a slow burning I would expect the dragon character to come to par in future books of the series but I consider this first and foremost a fantasy novel
