Part three and the exciting conclusion to the epic fantasy romance serial trilogy, Rogue Dragon Rising, marking the beginning of the Outside the Veil series.

With no memories to guide her, Amari Hawke seeks to discover the identity of the animal trapped inside her. Days away from Trinity, when her beast will appear for the first time, she must learn to communicate with her animal or she'll turn rogue from an unsuccessful shift.

Both Jaxon Blackthorn and his stubborn dragon have succumbed to Amari's charms even though her animal designation is unknown. Determined to use the power of his beast, Jaxon faces the impossible challenge of saving Amari while protecting her from rogue shifters determined to capture her.

Can the strength of their love achieve what has never been attempted in the shifter realm, a successful transition of Amari's animal and acceptance of her true heritage?

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This book contains sensual dream sequences with reverse harem inferences.

About the Author

As a child, TJ Shaw thrived in the Arizona desert. By the age of five, she was riding horses through cotton fields, and by eleven, bought her first motorcycle, a 125cc Honda dirt bike. Growing up with teachers as parents meant traveling during the summer. Hiking down to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon; fly fishing in icy rivers surrounded by breathtaking mountains; backpacking through national parks; surviving an earthquake in Mexico City; climbing the El Castillo, a pyramid in the ruins of Chichen Itza; sidestepping giant iguanas in the ancient Mayan port of Tulum; to exploring the Sagrada Familia, a Gaudi church in Barcelona, Spain were just some of her adventures. An avid daydreamer, she would lose herself in mystical worlds and far off places limited only by her imagination.

Always athletic (400m state track champion, snow and water skier, boxer, swimmer), TJ garnered a scholarship offer to play college basketball, but chose an academic scholarship to Arizona State University instead. To put herself through undergrad and law school, she lifeguarded and coached swimmers before promoting into management for a multi-million dollar recreation facility. She worked as a researcher/bailiff for a criminal judge while studying to the bar exam, and ultimately accepted a position as a Deputy County Attorney, prosecuting felony crimes, until she decided to patrol the streets as a police officer. Currently, she tells officers what to do as the policy and procedure writer for a police department.

A writer at heart, she didn’t attempt to get published until Caller of Light. After placing (and winning) in several Romance Writer’s Association chapter contests, she accepted a contract to place her work with the Wild Rose Press. Since then she has branched out and also publishes with other houses. If there were additional hours in the day, TJ would tickle the ivories a little more, writer about her dreams, and travel the world.

Oh my gosh! This was a freaking amazing ending to this story! Amari is in danger of going rogue once her transition is upon her. When Jaxon’s plan to help connect with her animal ends in almost disaster, she realizes she must take her own drastic steps in order to protect him. However, Jaxon is not one to let go without a fight and in this case that includes hunting her down. This was a deep emotional read in regards to the mental connections Amari must submit to, and even initiate herself. Talk about romance! When Jaxon reaches her through their mental link there is nothing to describe the beauty of his care for her and her animal. I’m absolutely in love with Jaxon and his cadre. They each bring a different flavor to the story along with a deep sense of loyalty and brotherhood. In addition, they supply just enough humor to lighten the heaviness of fear and worry that surrounds what the future holds for Amari. This story does take a turn towards the end that I wasn’t a fan of and I have to admit, I hope future books do not go in the direction these scenes hinted at. Some readers will absolutely love it, and I will say they are beautifully written with intense depth and emotion, but they are not to my particular taste. The drama in this installment of the trilogy is lessened as it deals mostly with Amari’s transition being what I consider mid-angst rather than heavy. There are a few loose ends that I hope will be closed in future books…please let there be future books! The pace is smooth and fluid, the heat level while not prevalent throughout, when it arises it ranges from that wonderful soul stirring this-is-love type of steam to full out heat of volcanic proportions. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys dragon shifters, this one has enough that your heart will sing!

Alpha Dragon Awakes is book three in the serial series, Outside the Veil by T.J. Shaw. This is the conclusion to Jaxon and Amari’s story although T.J. has assured me there are many more stories to tell in this series! There are so many things going on in this third book that I was literally on the edge of my seat throughout. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see what happens next! Amari still doesn’t have her memory so she has no idea what animal lives within her. But, she’s convinced it must be a horrible beast. Someone had put up that barrier in her mind, trapping it, for a reason. When shifters are twenty three years old and the trinity happens, when all three of their moons are at their brightest, it’s when they shift for the first time. But they have prepared for this their entire lives. They already have a relationship with their inner beast. Amari has no idea what it is and wants no part of it. One thing Amari is sure of, though, is that she has fallen in love with Jaxon and her life here on his estate. If Jaxon can’t find a way to safely bring her animal out during the trinity, she will turn rogue. She would rather die than turn rogue and put Jaxon through that pain. Jaxon is in love with Amari. She is his mate. Even though they haven’t completed the mating bond, the connection is still strong. Never has someone successfully helped a shifter through their first transition when they have no relationship with their animal, when they don’t even know what it is. But Jaxon’s skills are strong. He can do it. He has to do it because he can’t live without her. Somehow he just has to convince Amari to trust him. In this book we get an even closer look at Amari’s parents and their cadre. They want their daughter back and can’t imagine why she hasn’t come home. We also get to know Jaxon’s cadre much better and their intertwining relationship with him. We also get to know who is behind the attacks on Amari, who wants her and why! He is a very, very evil person and I suspect that this is the story line that is going to carry through the future books in this series! As I said before, everything is happening at the same time and it took my breath away. I stayed up past my bedtime because no way could I go to sleep last night not knowing how this ended. If you haven’t started this series yet, now is the perfect time since all three books will be out. This is such a fantastic world this author has created and I can’t wait for more.

With only a few days before Trinity, both Amari and Jaxon are panicking. They’re afraid Amari will shift without knowing her animal and turn rogue. In a desperate attempt, Jaxon seeks help from an unlikely source. It backfires and Amari flees. Her animal takes her over and Jaxson must use all his strength to bring her back from the brink of madness. At this moment, Amari’s father returns to bring her back home. Her memories comes flooding back and she knows who she is. Amari has a choice: go home with her father and never return or stay with Jaxson and risk going rogue. No matter what she chooses, everything she’s ever known crumbles around her. Will it be her home with her family or will it be in Jaxon’s arms? Holy dragon’s breath, this final part in the Outside the Veil serial is the best one yet! I think I held my breath the entire time reading. Action, romance, twists and turns had me whipping through the pages to a startling conclusion. This is so much more than a shifter romance; it’s about choosing to be your true self, no matter the risks. There was a point in the story where all looked lost and I couldn’t help but shed a few tears. Emotional, gripping, soaring fantasy romance I couldn’t put down. How hot is this romance? Well, I’d say it’s pretty hot. If you like reverse harem, this is right up your alley. If you’re looking for a heart wrenching fantasy romance, pick this up today! I’m hoping (fingers and toes crossed) there’ll be more in this series or a spin-off to a new series with some of the same characters. Highly recommend! Favorite Character/Quote: “I enjoy having you astride me,” Jaxon murmured just before leaping skyward. The air rushed from her lungs, although she wasn’t sure if her sudden inability to breathe stemmed from the force of the jump or Jaxon’s whispered confession. My Rating: 5+ stars

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I do plan to collect this set when it is in one set. The cover is beautiful and awesome is every detail! This is the 3rd part of this story, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content. It is a must for you to read the parts in order because the three parts are all part of the same story. I loved every second of this whole story. There is so much going on, passion, romance, mystery, treachery, and more. I love both Amari, Jaxon, and their families. This is a unique world that pulls you in; you will want more each time because I know I do. I especially love their HEA, and I suspect there will be a lot more in the future about their nest and the Hawke nest. I’m excited to see what comes next. I highly recommend to any shifter fan who wants something new, unique, and amazing!!
