About the Author

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby. She loves to connect with her fans at

Cradled is the last novella in the Beholder series. We already know the majority of the characters, but it's always good to reunite with them! Rowan and Elea are more than happy together, just with minor problems caused by their families. However, trouble comes there way in the shape of Kronos, who is the ruler of the planet Elea's parents were exiled to. They need the help of the Lightning Goddess and her Consort to save Jicho, and bring back the peaceful times to their rule. Although this is only a novella, there is still plenty of action. The Lightning Goddess and her Consort are crossover characters from another series, but you don't need to know as that it doesn't really impact this story. I loved their attitudes however, and I loved how Elea and Rowan were with them. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this felt like the perfect ending to Rowan and Elea's story. With all characters playing a part, it felt like the ending. I finished this book feeling completely satisfied, with a happy smile on my face. If you like this series, then you defintiely need to read this one! It's just not complete without it! * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

Cradled was the perfect follow up to see what all of our favorite characters were up to! It was tons of fun, filled with adventure, we got to spend lots of time with all the characters we loved and we even got a visit from another couple from the author's Angelbound Origin Series. Although there were some huge spoilers where they were concerned, so be careful if you haven't read that series yet. But regardless, the epilogue junkie in me absolutely loved this book! My favorite thing about this book was catching up with all of those that I loved. Yes I adored where the story went, but seeing my favorites?! Priceless! I loved that Rowan was sexy and protective as ever. Little Jericho was still absolutely adorable. And I have no clue if this is a possibility, but I would love to see him in the future, grown up, with his own series. Jericho was that charismatic, I could easily read more about him. And Elea warmed my heart and I loved watching her work through her HEA. So when I reached the end of the book, I loved that there was an epilogue that jumped a year in advance! So if you're a fan of the Beholder Series, you should definitely pick up this book! *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book, provided by Monster House Books, LLC.

It’s been awhile since I visited the world of Elea and Rowan, and to be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d be in their world again. Surprise! I was so glad to see this latest. We got a more finished wrap up of their world with visitors from other books in this novella epilogue. We get to see Elea and Rowan fight side-by-side one last time to save a loved one and get a visit from people I didn’t think we see again. And, there was even an unexpected surprise which I can’t talk about as I don’t want to give it away. If you are a fan of the Beholder series, you will love this novella. Highly recommend! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.
