Product Description

Two souls. One Body. Sharing is not an option…

Terrible news has turned Anaea Salis’s life upside down. There’s nothing she can do to make it right, and the stranger who stops to talk to her can’t help. But when that stranger, Hunter, an ancient dragon spirit, is viciously attacked and forced to transfer his spirit into her body, Anaea’s life takes a new terrifying twist.

Hunter should have known by now not to get involved with human affairs, but there was something about the woman that drew him to her, and he just couldn’t help himself. Trapped in her body all he wants is to get out, except whoever is trying to kill him is now after her.

Their only hope of survival… plunge into the deadly world of dragons.

3.0 out of 5 stars A New Take on Dragons 25 June 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm giving this book 3 stars, but it's a good 3 stars.

I think I'm in the minority here when I say that this book packed a lot of action right from the beginning and kept the pace steady. That's the reason I got 50% of the way through it before taking a break. Once Hunter and Anaea meet, the snowball starts rolling and doesn't let up, till the end that is.

If you want to read something with an ending sure to confuse you and piss you off, this book is definitely a contender. The action is boiling in the major fight sequence and then all of a sudden, it's over. I'm left scratching my head and wondering, "That's it?"

I liked Anaea as the heroine, she did radiate courage to me, but she wasn't without flaws. She could be stubborn and a bit irrational at times, but I understood Hunter's love for her because of her tenacity. Black did a good job of revealing Hunter's growing adoration for her, in reverse, not so much. The whole Mark thing.... Super weird for me and too quickly and conveniently resolved.

This book only steams in the romance department. There is no sizzle, which is a bummer considering you've got these all powerful dragon spirits who are strong and good looking. I loved the world building and the infusion of magic in this. Black took careful precision with that. Sometimes the story got bogged down with all the technical terms, but you can get through it. Overall, not bad of a quick read. With some editing, it could be better. I did notice errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read with far too few reviews 14 March 2012
By plasmageek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So I stumbled upon this on Amazon the other night. The premise sounded interesting, so I started with the sample. And then I bought the book....I have to say "wow", and I'm terribly surprised this book doesn't have more reviews.

Where to start? The main female character is Anaea. As you learn in the beginning, she has advanced breast cancer, and after quite a struggle, has learned she's going to die. I'll be honest; I was not happy with premise at the start. As a survivor myself, I often find that authors (both for books and movies) use cancer as some gateway to make something they desire to happen happen. It's often a cheap tool that is quickly abandoned, and to be honest, I expected no less. And I was shockingly and wonderfully surprised. Anaea's cancer and fight with cancer becomes a very important part of her character--as anybody who has gone through the experience can tell you, it really does shape who you are. The topic is never forgotten, and it really builds her character, coming up again and again. Not to be a spoiler, we get to see her from Hunter's point of view and see how much of a warrior she truly is, how beautiful and amazing she is having lived through the fight. From her own point of view, she is very much broken, missing her right breast, bald and dying, her worth further demeaned by her ex-husband. You really get to see her grow into herself, and it is beautiful. Thumbs up to the author--I didn't think using cancer to enhance a story could be done, but you did it very well.

And then there's Hunter. Aww Hunter...I am so very much in love. His growth is much more subtle and downplayed--of course, he's been alive for a few thousand years, and is pretty damn confident of himself--who wouldn't be set in their ways after a thousand years? But this in no way demeans his character, and without him, this book would have been a very different, very empty story. The play between the two characters, the entire flow of the book, has a very natural feel to it. The bantering and arguing between them is exactly as it should be--not once did I feel like something was out of place, or unnecessary. Even the extra characters do a lot to add to the book. Grey is an amazing character, with a lot of potential, and I hope we get to see more of Capris, and maybe learn a bit more about the Handmaiden (who I have a suspicion is a lot like Anaea, though I won't say more so as not to spoil anything).

Now my explanation of 4 stars and not 5. There are a few typos--not many, but a few. But mostly, its the text formatting. It changes continuously throughout the book, and randomly. One second it looks you're reading something from an old style type-writer, and the next, it looks like a normal kindle book. I actually found this to be the most distracting part of the book. Maybe it won't bother some people, but I would think this is something easy and simple for the author to go back and fix. Overall, I recommend it. It's a fantastic new spin in current day fantasy, and I can't wait for the next installment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great story but ... 12 September 2014
By Danika T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Two souls trapped in one body - that's not a good thing! I love the author's story and the ever deepening story line and the not so steamy love scenes was kind of a break, But I fellt let down at the end . I could tell there was a part two coming but she never finished with Hunter & Anaea's story. Whe did he ever tell her that by sharing her body, he'd cured her of cancer? When did he ever tell her he'd discovered she was his inamorata? As frustrated as I was at the ending, yep, I'm reading book 2. I want to know what happens!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dragon-spirit giving paranormal romance a whole new twist 9 March 2012
By J. Gunnar Grey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Paranormal romance is hot, but some of us just aren't turned on by vampires and werewolves. I picked this one up for something different and wasn't disappointed.

[SPOILER ALERT] The book opens with Anaea Solis, dying of cancer, standing on the Queen Street Bridge in Pittsburgh, about to throw herself into the half-frozen Allegheny River. It's either that or die slowly as the cancer eats her alive. But before she can convince herself to let go, a good and good-looking Samaritan approaches her from behind and tries to convince her to live. He's a stranger and doesn't understand her circumstances, of course, so she's cynical no matter how sexy his voice. Then a sword drives through both of them, they tumble into the icy river together, and the good Samaritan's body is so savagely injured that even the dragon-spirit inhabiting it can't magically heal the sword thrust. The spirit, Hunter, transfers into Anaea's dying body, giving him every reason to keep her alive. And the way his life is going, that's not going to be easy. [END SPOILER ALERT]

The plotline is nonstop and solid, classic action-reaction. Anaea is adaptable but realistic, and Hunter is ferocious, as a dragon should be. The chemistry between the two is fabulous and funny; try taking a shower with a male dragon looking out through your eyes, watching and feeling your every move. The little bits of dragonish behavior scattered throughout, such as showing a bit of teeth for sexual aggression, are logical yet clever.

The magic also shows logic and thankfully isn't overplayed, leaving the bulk of the work to the physical realm for the characters to handle. Clearly a lot of thought went into building this fantasy world, in some places perhaps too much, but it's fed to the reader in mainly digestible morsels. With the solid grounding, I almost feel I could survive among Hunter's people, for a while, at least.

Finally, Black's writing style is so conversational, it almost fades into the background as the characters tell their own story. Not something I often say, but this book ended too quickly for me, and it's not a short one. Lots of good page-turning here.

Five fully-earned stars.
4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it but not enough to keep going 17 April 2017
By J. Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is definitely worth reading, but I am not sure it has enough substance for a series. Original yet the writing is a bit simplistic. I liked the main characters but the supporting characters are not very interesting. It was a good book but not a great one.
