Review: Dealing with the Dead by Toni Griffin

Dealing with the Dead by Toni Griffin is the first book in the Thompson Agency series. The series revolves around a family of necromancers, all of whom work together as part of the family business of raising the dead. The first book is about the youngest son as he not only meets his mate but also has to share with his family the extent of his powers, which far surpass the other members in his family. This book is actually a reissue as it was originally with a different publisher.

Jayden is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means that his necromancer abilities far exceed those of his brothers or even his own father. Unfortunately, his family is unaware of his abilities until the day Noah walks into the office needing someone with the kind of powers that only Jayden possesses. While he is at first turned away, Jayden steps up and admits that he has the ability that Noah needs. Although the attraction between the two men is instantaneous, it is not until the two men touch for the first time that Jayden realizes that Noah is his mate. As the two men work together to finish the book that Noah’s brother was writing before his untimely death, their relationship flourishes and while love is easy for the two men, dealing with amount of power Jayden has and the amount of havoc that power can cause is not.

Toni Griffin starts this series with such strength that it easily leaves the reader wanting to grab the next book in the series. The brothers all make their presence known and as far as first books go, this one starts strong with characters that are both flawed but easily loveable. There is some minor mention of other paranormals throughout the book, but the focus is on the necromancers and their own abilities and powers. This is easily a refreshing paranormal story as the characters are not your typical shifter or vampire. Book one will draw the reader in with ease and sets up a potentially brilliant series.

At 18, warlock Zander Knight is just beginning to understand himself and his sexuality. Still exploring, Zander finds himself unable to fully commit to his love, Tau. He knows that there are some powerful people who want supernaturals dead. Unfortunately, the politics between vampires, shifters and magicals is interfering with getting others to believe him. Zander decides it is up to him along with his best friend Giovanni to investigate and deal with the threat. He did not count on one very handsome shifter to ambush them.

One More Knight is the second book in One Warlock’s Love Story. One thing you can count on in this book is that nothing is as expected. Zander remains the same loveable mix of strong abilities and naivety. You cannot help but fall for him just as Tau has. Tau is back but is distracted by other duties. There is a touch of humor in the beginning of the story as Zander learns about magic. Danger quickly intrudes and Zander and his best friend, Giovanni find themselves fighting for their lives.

Shad O. Walker has penned an incredibly series with One Warlock’s Love Story. One Goode Knight takes us deeper into the story and twist and turns with every page. We are left wanting more and anxiously awaiting the next volume in this, oh, so exciting and incredibly intriguing series.

Review: For a Dragon’s Treasure by Charlie Richards

Thom finds himself looking For a Dragon’s Treasure in this third story in the series Highland Dragons by Charlie Richards.

To say that Thom Mac Doffrey was surprised by what Kaiser told him is to put it mildly. Kaiser waylaid Thom outside of his camp and told him tales of treasures and adventure. Thom comes from a family of thieves and he has tried hard to rise above that and live his life honestly but life as a mercenary has not been easy and Kaiser promises the treasure will be given to him freely as a boon. Thom agrees to go along to see what Kaiser is talking about. Arriving in Karstelle Valley. Thom realizes that in reality he is the boon when Kaiser turns him over to a dragon. Fearing the worst, Thom flees, but the dragon tracks him down and wants to explain and keep him safe.

We continue to learn a lot about dragons and their society in For a Dragon’s Treasure. It was pleasure to meet another Elder and watch him try and win his man. Thom was positive this was not for him and only harm would come to him. These two had to work hard to overcome their differences. Then, several things happened to prove they they belonged together. Thom experiences some danger, leaving us on the edge of our seat. This new series is a delight to read and enjoy. We can only hope Charlie Richards has many more stories for us in the future. This author is fast becoming one of my favorites as these stories always please and delight.
