After her Celtic kin proved too big a bunch of bastards to bother with, Rowan sought solace among witches.

The first book in a magic-laced, fast-paced fantasy trilogy. With dragons.

After the Breaking, not much was left. I assumed it was a case of magic gone bad—until I discovered my goddess mother had broken the world. She didn't like it that I'd turned my back on the pantheon. My long tenure among witches rubbed salt into the wound.
After a confrontation where Mommy Dearest fessed up—and lacked the decency to bat an eyelash about the widespread destruction she'd caused—I was digesting what to do next when a dragon showed up.
Yes. A dragon.
The beast didn't talk with me or anything, but it flew overhead wreaking havoc on a goblin horde. Witches are old souls with kind hearts, but they're not particularly strong magically, so I was grateful for the help.
And suspicious as hell. Why a dragon? Why here and why now? More importantly, why was he—she?—helping me? Part of me didn't want to know, and another part was certain I'd find out anyway.

WOW! I loved it. This first book in the authors new series has everything in it that makes a terrific read. Mythology comes to life, with all it's good and bad. The heroine's background story makes you sad and angry, and how she chooses to handle it shows her strength of character. The hero has more courage than he knew and each move he makes proves it. Throw in the dragons, gods, witches, evil creatures, secrets unleashed, and new love; mix them all together and you've got one hell of a story. But oh no!!!! I need the second book NOW!!!!.

Dragon's Call, book 1 in Ann Gimpel's new series Dragon's Heir, starts off running and never slows down. The storyline is well-written and fast-paced, filled with magic, mayhem, intrigue, revenge, Celts, Norse, romance and, of course, dragons! The characters are well-developed and very engaging. In typical Ann Gimpel style, the world-building is fantastic and so intrinsic it is mind blowing!. I can't wait for book2!

The intertwined lore is a fascinating twist but there is no need for the incessant vulgarity or graphic sexual scenes. The story and plot should stand alone without being reduced to trashy porn. Character development is lacking depth and the unemotional manner in which the humans react to discovering who destroyed the Earth is full on unbelievable.
