    The third Words Like Magic urban romantic fantasy is a terrific often amusing thriller

    The Roman legionnaires were fighting when Killian the crone of Chaos cursed them; changing them into dragons and propelling them into an alternate reality on the Island of Stars. They have waited for centuries to come home as humans. Two millennia after the banishment spell they finally gain a chance due to Killian's enemy Andra who enables one at a time to return to Earth as a human in search of his soulmate.

    Darkwyn Dragonelli arrives on earth after entering the mist. He is euphorically shocked to see her as he manifests nude at Bronte's club in Salem a hangout for vampires, undead hopefuls and tourists. Bronte's friend Vivica the dragon liaison manages to keep her friend from calling the cops. Struggling to adapt, Darkwyn gets a position as a vampire master at Bronte's club. He becomes close to his soulmate's son Zachary and has hopes Bronte will know they belong together. However she has dark secrets and enemies while he has a crone insuring he fails.

    The third Words Like Magic urban romantic fantasy is a terrific often amusing thriller as Darkwyn struggles to adapt to an earth much different from the one he was exiled from and to persuade Bronte they belong together. Because the Blair mythos is extremely complicated, newcomers should start at the beginning with Naked Dragon and Bedeviled Angel. The new readers will agree with fans that, even though the tone is similar to the Beauty and the taming of the Beast theme of its predecessors, that Darkwyn's efforts to save his soul though love is a terrific tale.

    Works Like Magick, Book Three. Bring on the dragons!

    Once he was a Roman. But that was before an evil sorceress, Killian, turned him into a dragon. Killian sent him and his comrades to the Island of Stars. Now the Island of Stars is dying. Andra, Goddess of Hope, is sending each dragon back to the mortal plain. After being a dragon for centuries, Darkwyn Dragonelli is a man once more. He is the third Dragonelli to return to the mortal plain. Darkwyn is tasked to find his heart mate and to make her life quest his own. He must also best Killian. Should Killian win, no other will be able to live the Island of Stars and they will perish. Darkwyn is an alpha male, no matter his current species, wearing unseen scales and spikes like armor. He knows to expect Vivica to greet him upon his arrival. When Darkwyn steps onto the mortal plain, standing over him is Bronte McBride. She owns the Phoenix building and all the businesses within it. Her businesses cater to visitors and locals who enjoy vampire roleplaying. The brilliant inventor behind the scenes is her twelve-year-old nephew, Zachary Tucker. Bronte quickly realizes that this man is different from any other she has met. She and Zachary are in hiding from one of Canada's most powerful men. After only a few days with Vivica, the alpha feels danger stalking his heart mate, Bronte. He knows telepathy and dragon speak well, but has only a rudimentary grasp of English. Darkwyn is soon employed as the Phoenix's Master Vampire. His main duties are to keep the peace and to act as Bronte's vampire mate (bodyguard). Turns out that the appealing woman has a few nebulous and erratic psychic gifts. Her nephew is more than meets the eye as well. On the Island of Stars he had been one of the fiercest dragons, as unpredictable and dangerous as the black ice he had been nicknamed after. Now he undertakes the most important challenges in his extremely long life span: to eliminate all of his heart mate's powerful enemies and to defeat Killian, clearing the way for the next Dragonelli to arrive. ..***** FIVE STARS! If you have read the previous titles then you will be happy to know that Jaydun and Bastian make a cameo or two in this episode. If you are a new reader, you will find yourself confused the first few chapters as you slowly learn the characters for this story and about the continuously running (series) plot involving Killian. It does not take long for Bronte and Darkwyn to wind up in bed together and these scenes downright sizzle! And since Darkwyn was formerly a dragon, these scenes are...interesting. Many authors insert wacky humor to help break the tension whenever it gets too thick; however, Annette Blair's style of humor is always unusual. Darkwyn arrives with some animal sidekicks. There is a small guardian dragon and two glowing cats that have flutterby wings. Of course the dragon is invisible and the two felines look normal to humans. The one companion that all can see is Puck, a bird with the markings of a Catalina macaw. Puck does not simply quote back what he has heard. Puck swears in his sleep and, when awake, the bird is very talkative. Puck's running commentaries are often (loose) word definitions. Numerous times I found myself laughing long and loud. Readers wanting a break from all the vampire and werewolf romances do not need to look any further than here. Bring on the dragons! ***** Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.

    I am the dragon queen or the queen of dragons

    Vampire dragons is similar to vampires according to a practical guide to dragon riding so if this book is about vampire dragons having the same strenght than it is wrong
