    a must reads series

    Radcliffe paints her scenes in tones and hues. You feel like you’re looking at an oil painting. Everything pops with a vivid sense of reality that draws you to it. Her writing is simultaneously eloquent and snarky. By writing in short, poignant sentences Radcliffe adds an extra sense of urgency to an already suspenseful tale. Radcliffe throws classic style out the window, telling her wildly creative story in her own way and keeping her readers completely captivated throughout. The way that she combines history with the present and a whole lot of her own imagination creates a riveting tale that you won’t be able to put down. She has also created an extremely well developed world that is backed by a solid and well formulated mythological basis. I love how personified the Dragons are, unlike so many other stories where dragons are simply beats. It makes them easy to identify with and relate too, while allowing the reader to see things from their POV. It also allows the reader to fully immerse themselves into this phenomenal world. Not only is this a fantastically magical story, this novel is also an in-your-face social commentary that really makes you stop and think. I appreciate the fact that this novella is complementary to the Activation trilogy of the series, while also standing alone. I found myself getting excited over each and every new detail revealed. I love the sense of Daisy’s character that you get in this novella. By having Daisy tell her own story you not only get to see who she is today, but how she got to where she is. Getting up close and personal with Gavin was similarly revealing. I found myself really feeling a connection to these two. You also get an intriguing look at the dragons, getting to know them outside of the Activation series. The sneek peek at the Seraphim was also intriguingly cliffhanger-esque. Radcliffe gives you a peek into many histories while developing certain characters in the present. It combines into a heady mix that will make you feel part of this world. You also come away with a much more intense understanding of the Fates & how they work. It was quite enlightening. If I thought I was addicted to the world of Fate~Fire~Shifter~Dragon before reading this novella I was woefully wrong. This mini-trilogy took it to an entirely new level. Radcliffe melds reality and imagination together in a manner so seamless that you’ll find yourself walking through the pages alongside her characters. I couldn’t put it down for a second. As a master storyteller Radcliffe merges myth with reality, history with the present, romance with action into a story that one cannot help but love. This series was an emotionally intense and a wild ride. It brought tears to my eyes but also left me laughing. It is definitely a must read series. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    Fast-Paced Can't Put the Book Down Book!

    BONDS: The Schwartz Synopsis: This short read introduces us to Daisy, a young shifter. The book starts off with her talking to Rysa’s best friend, Gavin. Their chat quickly turns into a story of Daisy’s past connections to the Doctor, who just so happens to be Rysa’s runaway father. The Doctor and Daisy have a run in with some burners, fates, and fight their way to safety, all at the instruction of a different fate. But fates can’t be trusted, can they? The Schwartz Thoughts: As always, Kris Radcliffe is so very talented with her pen (or more likely, her keyboard). From the moment that I picked this novel up to read I was unable to put it back down again until it was finished and I finally knew how it all ended, or rather, began. I absolutely loved how well developed Daisy’s character was, she was the perfect teenager all full of know-it-all and defiance. Which happened to serve her well in this adventure or run-for-your-life situation that was so beautifully written. The story takes place before Rysa’s story. You know, about the time that her father disappeared. This book is part of the why, not the whole why, oh no no no. Just a part of the why. There is enough of a cliff hanger to keep you reading through this mini-series. BROKEN: Schwartz Synopsis: Following Daisy’s tale from Bonds, she continues her story to Gavin, catching him up on her disastrous past. After running for her life from Burners and Fates she finds what she is looking for only to fear once more that her secrets will be found. Fleeing from the Land of Milk and Honey, the bar that the dragons frequent, she meets Aiden, the nicest Fate she has ever met. They begin a journey that ends in terror. What happens when the protection and answers you sought end up being more dangerous than the unknown? Will she escape the surrounding danger? Will the answers she seek be found before it’s too late? Schwartz Thoughts: Such a quick and short read that was extremely well written. Even though the novel is sci-fi/fantasy, the novel is written in a way that makes it all sound realistic. Everything happens in a fashion that makes sense, nothing is thrown in out of place, and everything fits perfectly. The characters are real and well developed and enjoyable. There are hooks at the end of every chapter that keeps the reader interested and reading. The pages practically turn themselves as you race to find out what will happen to Daisy. After reading this short read you are still left with a few questions, which just makes the reader want to pick up the next book in this short series. Which I will be reading and reviewing as well. Can’t stop now. All in all, a very enjoyable read. SILENT: Schwartz Synopsis This story takes you back to when Rysa is kidnapped, but this time, you are reading from Gavin’s point of view. Now you get to see just how Gavin meets Daisy, and the terror that they encounter together as Shifter’s demand answers from Daisy. Gavin, with Dimitri and Ivan’s help, runs in to try and give any support he can to the woman who he owes his life to. How will they survive their encounter with a very dangerous, semi-crazy, raging Shifter? This is the beginning of their story, and probably the most important piece of their puzzle. Do not miss this fantastic beginning filled with terror, questions, and answers. Schwartz Thoughts I found the read extremely interesting to be with Gavin while Rysa was being kidnapped. Watching him, hearing his thoughts, while his best friend was taken was an all-new experience for the reader. While this short read was jammed packed with action, there were moments that it had me giggling to myself (thankfully I read without an audience ;). It had me guessing at times as well, wondering what was going on??? It is no secret that I adore Kris Radcliffe’s writing, but I do honestly review her work unbiased. Her writing is well thought up, nothing is added in ‘willy-nilly spur of the moment because I need it’ because I am positive she has storylines prepared. You can feel the amount of work that has gone into these books. The characters are well developed and even though you spend time in each of their heads, they all sound different from one another. The scenes are described perfectly, not overly so but enough that the reader can get the idea of what is around them. Another thing I enjoy about these novels is the amount of work behind these words. There are no errors, and the story is unique. I have read nothing prior to these works about the types of supernaturals within these pages. And even if they are in other books, hers are done so differently that they really are on a different level. Overall, great book and again, I look forward to reading anything by this author in the future. She is one to keep your eye on. -The Schwartz Reviews
