Meet the Author

Things that go bump in the night have always fascinated Jaime Rush. Sometimes those things are human; other times, not so much. Now she has twisted them all together in the Hidden, a trilogy about humans with the essence of gods who walk the knife's edge between the glamour of Miami and a place filled with dark magick and dangerous beauty.

Jaime is the author of the Offspring series and also writes under the name Tina Wainscott. She is the bestselling author of eighteen romance novels. She lives in Southwest Florida with her husband, daughter, and cat.

    Dragon Rising was quite interesting. I liked the intriguing world that author Jaime Rush has written. However, I haven't read Dragon Mine and so I did find myself a bit confused with this story so I'd recommend reading Dragon Mine first to get a foundation for this story/series and to get a better grip of this world that we are introduced to.

    This novella was filled with many characters and terminologies that I couldn't wrap my head around. I felt as if I needed a glossary with me while reading because I couldn't figure who's who and what's what. Hence, it was a bit confusing. Yet, it wasn't hard to follow along with the story in Dragon Rising. I wasn't completely lost, but it still felt like pieces of the puzzle were missing. I just felt that the story was too short overall to expand on the world building and the terminologies. For that, a full length novel would be needed to appreciate this unique world and understand the terminologies provided in the story.

    Another thing I should also mention is the romance. I felt as if this story was not heavy on the romance, but rather it was more focused on the suspense and mystery of finding Lyra's father and Archer's brother.

    *SPOILER ALERT*

    Thus, when Lyra and Archer ended up bonded at the end, it just didn't fit well with the story. Dragon Rising took place in a matter of days (or at least it felt like it) and since Lyra and Archer's romance/relationship was not explored in depth I found it strange how they ended up bonded at the end of Dragon Rising. It felt as if the author just threw that in there for the heck of a happy-ever-after.

    *******

    Overall, as mentioned earlier, I'd recommend reading Dragon Mine first before Dragon Rising. Your reading experience might be better than mine. Although I didn't end up loving this novella, I can see potential with this series. I'll say give the novellas, Dragon Mine and Dragon Rising, a chance to see if this is a series for you.

    I am a huge lover of paranormal/fantasy romance, shape shifters


    I am a huge lover of paranormal/fantasy romance, shape shifters in particular. Jamie Rush delivers in Lyra’s story.


    I am so glad I decided to read this book. Oh this little novella was the perfect blend of adventure, intrigue and romance. There is a wonderful world of paranormal excitement hidden under the very noses of us mundanes.


    There are so many things going on in that world that parallels real life, not being a dragon shifter or anything like that, but the prejudice between the hiddens. Generalizations and stereotypes that are made without actually knowing why different classes of hiddens act the way they do.


    So, when Lyra meets the tall “cool” drink of water that might help her find her father, those prejudices might get in the way. They both learn that there is more than meets the eye as they work together to figure out what’s happened to her father and his brother.

    There is tension from the very beginning between the two and this is one of the beautiful things about this read. I couldn’t wait for something to happen that allowed them to simply touch let alone share their first kiss, aggh. I loved it and so will you!

    This is he first story by Rush that I have read. It is a short



    This is he first story by Rush that I have read. It is a short story/novella prequel to the series. I really liked Rush's take on shapeshifters/angels. I normally am not a fan of the fallen angel story, but it worked for me. I liked how Archer's emotionless contrasted Lyra's fiery personality. I do wish that there was more time spent building their relationship. A lot of information was given on the world, plus the mystery with Lyra's brother, and that left little time to really build the relationship part of it. I wish it would have ended with a happy for now instead of bonded for life.

    I received this book through NetGalley

    Fabulous Prequel!

    Dragons, fallen angels and more grace the pages of this very short, very involved, sometimes very hot paranormal read! Mystery, mayhem and romance are compacted down to a quick read that introduces a cast of paranormal creatures that is huge and world that promises to be a very “hot” place to be.

    Dragon Rising by Jaime Rush book 0.6 in The Hidden series proves that good things can come in small packages, but pay attention! No, there won’t be a test, but you won’t want to miss one small detail as this fast-paced prequel novella rushes on. I cannot wait for book one, I’m ready, fire extinguisher in hand!

    I received a review copy from Forever Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Confusing 

    The main romance of this start to a new urban fantasy series is enjoyable if rushed in its development due to the length.




    The Angel (Caideo) and Dragon species are nicely developed and we have a good origin story. 




    However, overall, I was just confused and because of that disengaged. 




    There are others in this world--Deuces and Crescents. I have no idea what they are. In fact, not only are all the other species not detailed, all the side characters are barely developed as well. 




    I wish this was known world to humans and not a hidden one. I am tired of the secret society of paranormals stuff. This kind of plot development takes away time from character and plot development.
     
    This writer has talent. I am hoping a longer format gives us more depth and less confusion.
     
    I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it!
