Marie feels she has disappointed her family, even the world. She's supposed to carry on the magic for her family and the rest of the magics. But, she just isn't magical. She was told she'd come into her own. Too bad the time is up. Tonight a new leader is named and the man in line is an...well he is. She's been dreaming of a Prince, one who is magic and makes her feel it herself. Too bad he's just in her dreams—or is he. Read the lengths Marie is willing to go to save the magic people of Tarkar Hollow, how she tries to save the world of magic, and maybe find a Prince of her own. You'll see some magic and read about some magical toys, villains, and a Christmas to remember. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.
This awesome, contemporary fiction short story is one of my all time favorites. To me it was like losing myself in a fantasy- like a whimsical, fairy tale for adults. One of the best page turners I've ever read & did not want to put down, then left me wanting more when I was done! This author always comes up with fresh, new engaging story-lines, wonderfully well developed characters & witty dialogue. This novella is no exception, so if you're like me and love paranormal romantic suspense, this must read is for you.
The Clockwork Dragon is a brand new novella set in Tarker’s Hollow written by Tasha Black. Marie Ironwood is a twenty-two year old young woman waiting for her magic to arrive. Harry Dross is an old family friend who has a talent for making toys. On the eve of a very important night, he gives Marie a spectacular clockwork dragon. Marie is enchanted with not only the clockwork dragon but also the man who made it. Tasha Black has once again done an excellent job in bringing Tarker’s Hollow and its residents to life in this novella. Marie is enchanting and Harry is charismatic. The author’s description of the clockwork dragon is detailed and captures the reader’s attention. I found The Clockwork Dragon to be an enjoyable read and recommend it to other readers.
Just who is the golden-eyed prince??? I originally read 'The Clockwork Dragon' in the 'A Very Alpha Christmas' boxset, but just finished re- reading it. I absolutely FLOVE Tasha's "Curse of the Alpha" & "Fate of the Alpha" series & to learn that 'The Clockwork Dragon' is set at Tarker's Hollow.... made me do the happy dance. I was instantly sucked back into the lives of the citizens of Tarkers Hollow & I LOVED it!! Although it's centered around the Magical side of the community of Tarker's Hollow & not the wolves, you still get a scense of being there again. I was LOST in this, the story was rivetting. When Marie has a vision of a golden-eyed prince, she knows it's significant. On the eve of the most important night of her life, the older gorgeous toy maker arrives & gifts Marie a beautiful Clockwork Dragon..... My only wish, well I actually have a couple.. 1. the story was longer & 2. we get to read more from the magical community of Tarker's Hollow.
