Desperate Magic by Rebecca York

Willow was left behind when her sister Rowan fled the protective village she lived in.  She didn't want to stay there, but she couldn't leave.  The people of the village shunned her.  It was a lonely life with no real future ahead of her.

Carina Press and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It was published July 1st, so you can find a copy of the book now.

I've read Ms. York's work before and I enjoy her style of writing.  She writes a very good fantasy story and this one involves dragons.

Willow is watching a dragon fly near the protective fence when she decides to try to escape once more.  The dragon aids her attempt and she finally gets outside the magic fence.  From there, she's going to locate her sister, who has been calling for her help telepathically. When she finds a good looking man going the same way she is, she decides to travel with him.  The woods are dangerous and the way is long, so she agrees.  

Cullendor is a dragon shifter and he wants to learn enough about humans to take over the kingdom she's heading for.  Her sister is married to the King, but Cullendor is sure he can beat him in a fight and acquire the kingdom.  What he didn't plan on was how Willow would affect him.  She teaches him that human females are not at all like dragon females.  She also teaches him about love.

The story is fairly predictable and you know early how it's going to end, but it's a good read and I liked it a lot.  I like fairy tales with happy endings.  Why not get a copy and read it yourself?  Finishing a book with a smile on your face is a good thing!

Happy reading.
