Overview

Series Description: The Dragon Shifters of Derkesthai Academy series is a paranormal romance series with mystery and suspense elements where dragon shifters hunt a magickal hoard thief who threatens to bring down the entire dragon mage race.

Book Description: From This Day Forward: A Dragon Shifter Novella
Noah Easton, a Special Forces dragon shifter, escapes the torture of a hoard thief bent on stealing dragon hoard stones and their elemental power from the mages who possess them, but the situation becomes personal when the hoard thief targets the woman he loves. He must return to his hometown of Mystic Springs to protect those he loves from a magickal threat he cannot identify before he loses everything.

April Easton is a modern day oracle. She reads tea leaves and just about anything else that can predict coming events. However, past abandonment issues make her resistant to reading her own signs. But when evil comes to Mystic Springs, April must face her biggest fears of abandonment and betrayal in order to save what’s most important to her. Only by studying the past and owning her future can she stop a magickal criminal who threatens to steal everything she’s ever loved and destroy the dragon mage who holds her heart.

From This Day Forward is a 40,000-word contemporary paranormal romance novella with mystery and suspense elements. This is the second story in the Derkesthai Dragon Mage Academy series. It follows To Have & To Hold, now available at Amazon.com and at Barnes and Noble. Derkesthai Academy is Hogwarts for dragon shifters.

Look for Until Death Do Us Part, the next Dragon Shifter novella, out later this year. Until Death is David Pearson and Iona LeFay’s story of ill-fated love and restoration.

    The second novella in the Dragon Shifters of Derkesthai Academy

    The second novella in the Dragon Shifters of Derkesthai Academy series is an intriguing paranormal romance with some refreshing unique perspectives.
    Special Forces dragon shifter Noah Easton escapes the torture of a hoard thief bent on stealing dragon hoard stones and their elemental powers, but the situation becomes personal when the thief targets his family.  Modern day oracle, April reads tea leaves and just about anything else that can predict coming events, but her past abandonment issues makes her resistant to reading her own signs.  When evil comes to Mystic Springs, she must face her fears to save everything she’s ever loved from the magical criminal who threatens to steal it.
    This steady paced plot has it all, action, suspense, drama, betrayal and romance.  The author describes the story with vivid imagery that captures the imagination and the characters are bewitching and easily related to.  The tension builds throughout as the story progresses to the explosive final battle with the enemy.
    The attraction between April and Noah burns hot, but the relationship stands on a rocky foundation because of April’s past. The author describes April’s emotional journey with lots of detail that makes it easy for the reader to empathize with her.  But from my point of view, Noah captured my heart because he’s the ultimate alpha dragon male with strong protective instincts, now that’s sexy, right?
    The author has included some different concepts to her dragons that I have not encountered before which added some depth to the story also the town with its magic springs that may or may not be a magical entity on its own, hmmm, very intriguing.  I was a little disappointed at first because it seemed more talk than action, but it quickly picked up and got real interesting and I found it to be an enjoyable read.

    I received a free copy of this novella in exchange for my honest opinion.  Here it is:
    This was a very enjoyable novella.  I have not read the prior book in the series, but didn't feel I needed to in order to love this one.  I appreciated the maturity of the author's writing.  The plot was intriguing and exciting.  The action was fast paced, but didn't detract from the character development.  I was surprised at the level of character development that was obtained in this novella.  The only negative I could say was that the plot needed to be tightened up at times, as it jumped around a little and was hard to follow occasionally.  However, this was a great novella.  I can't wait to go back and read the previous title in the series.  Exactly what I was looking for.  The romance piece was appropriate for an adult, which I hope I am by now.  I penned this anonymously as I can't get my stupid computer/program to accept a pen name:)

    From This Day Forward is the story of two magickals trying to raise their family within the limitations of their culture. But when serious threat arises, lines are drawn and choices are made that can affect not only Noah and April Easton's family, but their relationship as well.

    Noah Easton is a Captain in the Special Forces. His men follow him, his wife and family love him. He has everything one could want in his life. But there's something different about him, he's a dragon mage.

    Being married to a dragon is no easy feat for April. She's had to endure being a single parent for ten years because of ancient dragon lore, she runs a successful business all by herself, and she's her town's oracle. When all signs point to something horrible coming, April does her best to brace herself, even if she doesn't want to believe.

    From This Day Forward starts off a bit slow. April and Noah's introductions just fell flat. Throughout the novella we get more insight into each character which makes it easier to like them both, Noah more so than April though. The overall story was okay. I don't know, it just didn't go the way I was expecting it to go. And the last chapter or two seemed a bit rushed. There is a solid end to Noah and April's story, but because this is a part of a series, there's no real conclusion to the overall picture.
