DRAGONS & MAGIC & ELVES, OH MY!!! What a truly MAGNELFICENT book!!! Right from the cover I was drawn in, but that was nothing compared to just how blown away I was by the story itself! I was instantly captivated and caught in its magical spell from beginning to long after I reached The End!! I was swept away into another time & place right along with Mia, a place that is both magical, beautiful and scary! In fact I think that Paula herself said it best “Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery” EXACTLY my feelings and connection to this book, its characters of every species, the world, the series, just ALL OF IT!! This series is as precious & as beautiful & as magical & as rare as the Dragonstone itself!! In fact I wonder if Mia, Kort, Magnus, and the rest of Team Castle Elias cast a protection spell to end all spells that turned the precious Dragonstone into this epic & MAGNUSIFICENT book! It truly is that ABSO-ELFING-LUTELY priceless! There are so many WINGTASTIC, amazing, magical parts to this story, but in my opinion, the best part (besides the entire story!) is the dragons! I ABSO-ROARING-LUTELY love everything about them! Their different & individual abilities, their personalities, or dragonalities I should say, just EVERYTHING!! Paula has done a DRAGONTASTIC & creatively AMIAZING job bringing them to life! In fact, Paula has worked her magic on every little scale of this story & series! PURE GENIUS! I love, Love, LOVE it and I can’t emphasize it enough! There were a few parts that literally brought me to tears they were so magical & CLAWESOME & wondrous! Paula's vivid & vibrant descriptions bring this story to life like no other! The details, the numerous aspects of daily life, the small parts, even some that may seem inconsequential really aren’t! They all help to paint the entire picture in full colors, bright & bold, breathing life into and enhancing the "major" parts, making this a TRULY SPELLBINDINGLY STUNNING MASTERPIECE ON EVERY & ALL LEVELS! The fantastical brilliance of Paula's storytelling, her writing style and creativity not only turn this DRAGONTACULAR book into a living adventure in my mind's eye, but it also speaks to just how phenomenally talented & exceptionally gifted she is! I not only read and watched the story happen, I LIVED IT! Paula has done what very few authors can do - write a fantasy story & series that resonates within me just as deeply as Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar books do! I have to say that this is THE BEST fantasy book I have read since I first discovered the genre with Mercedes Lackey! Excluding Mercedes’ books, that is. :) Maybe this is a bold statement but it doesn’t make it any less true! I ABSO-FLYING-LUTELY love, Love, LOVE THIS BOOK & SERIES! This book reaffirms my love for fantasy stories and reminds me just why I fell in love with these kinds of books in the first place, and why to this day I am STILL in love with Elves, Dragons & magic all things Fantasy! Mei sunt veri amoris. My One True Love. Forever. (due to size restrictions this is a shortened review. see my fb page for full review)

I really enjoyed this second story! Mia and Kort are back with of course DRAGONS!!! I really did like that Mia was learning what she can do and a lot about where she is now plus there's a hot prince. However there was a little too much filler and there where times I found myself scanning, not always but once or twice for sure. Overall a little verbose but fun.

Different worlds, dragons, elves, evil yet misguided women - what more could you ask for? Now, this is the first 'full' book in the Kingdom of Chalvaren series, although there is the novella in which our two main characters meet. What made this book interesting for me is that they were already 'together' right at the start. So although I knew that things had moved quickly in the prequel, it actually made for fantastic reading as the two of them got to know each other and explored their feelings for each other. Now trust me when I say those feelings run hot! Their relationship has the normal ups, downs and misunderstandings that occur when two people are trying to live together and that made for excellent reading. Throw in a world in chaos, with crazy woman trying to resurrect the dead along with killing the dragons, you have an action-packed world, full of character and heart. With a smooth, steady pace and excitement on every page, this is a wonderful Fantasy Action Romance. I know that there are two books in this series but I am really hoping for more. I loved the world of Chalvaren and hope to see more of it, and the dragons, in the future. Highly recommended for all fans of Fantasy! * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I really enjoyed this story. I love that the relationship builds throughout the story and doesn’t just throw it in your face, like a lot of romances lately. The characters are also believable, which I enjoyed. This story pulled me in and I felt I was right there with them the entire time, and I was on the edge of my seat quite often. This is certainly a page turner! Overall Chalvaren Rising is a wonderfully written love story with action and adventure. I recommend this story to people who love fantasy and romance. *I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
