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.
