Genres: Urban Fantasy
Amazon, Barnes & Noble
Maya and I are just trying to have a girls’ weekend in Vegas. Kick back, take in some shows … Then Gabrielle decides to tag along.
Now there’s a dragon slayer after Mick, gladiatorial games from hell, and a Vegas hotel full of trapped demons. When
Gabrielle and I charge in to assist, we don’t realize we’re awakening an ancient and terrible evil …
This evil is now after Gabrielle and her all-powerful magic, and it’s going to take me, Mick, Colby, and the rest of the dragons to keep my little sister safe.
I have always been a fan of the Stormwalker series, especially when Janet and Nash butt heads. (I have a secret crush on Nash.) The releases have spread out now, only two books over the last five years. I suspect it has as much to do with no longer being traditionally published as it does the hectic pace this author keeps. She writes under three names (?) and seems to have a book release EVERY month. Whew! I was so pleased she was willing to let me read and review Dragon Bites.
As the series continues, we have learned much about Janet, but still have much to know about Mick and the dragons. I thought this is where things would go. It did but only a little. This is Gabrielle’s coming of age story. No one, including me, cared much about her other than keeping her out of trouble. But now we have the inner Gabrielle.
The girls go to Vegas for a fun time. Nash, brilliant man he is, follows to keep the peace. I love his small part in the story. I actually kind of hope he will get his own story since not every book now has a Janet focus. Janet and Nash seem to get along fine nowadays. The setting throughout is primarily Las Vegas. Our team of quirky players has to fight against the evil who has held Mick’s debt.
Delving into other characters, or even learning more about Mick is a breath of new life and direction. I look forward to more stories over the next few years.
