All This Is Going this is going Jev s trying to abide by Zenia s wishes and keep their relationship strictly rofessional But you know lingering looks and accidentally admitting to some late night fantasies happen Right I mean sometimes those things just slip out and once it s said
it s not like it can be unsaidOn top of all s not like it can be unsaidOn top of all Zenia s dragon tear is massively owerful andwell honestly I don t think Zenia s the type to turn all Mourning Child Grief Support Group Curriculum power mad or anything when she gets a taste of it but that tear is far than it seems FAR MOREI m not thrilled with the news Jev s cousin dumped on him at the end of the book but I m completely ready to see how he gets himself out of his situation Completely Onto the next book Kelly Reading the Paranormal Another adventureCrocodiles Criminal guilds Explosives Threats of marriage And fiftyounds of Judgment Day (Time of Judgment Trilogy, paperworkI enjoyed this one Jev and Zenia barely manage to rescue their friends and save the city Three and a half starsCutter and Master Grindmor have gone missing 500 dwarves are travelling to Korvann to settle asart of King Targyon s attempts to make the country less xenophobic now that the war with the elves has endedJev and Zenia have to deal with office A Full Scholarship (Sex Powers University 1) politics from the captain they effectively demoted Jev also has to deal with gossip about hisrivate life and fears that his father will arrange a marriage to a high born Zyndari woman I liked this but I didn t love it maybe it s swords and sorcery fatigue from devouring three books in as many days I felt we covered a lot of the same dithering about Jev and Zenia s romance as we did in the second book just man up and marry her NOW Also Zenia dragon s tear is so owerful and can Do Anything That It Obviates The Need For Cunning Or anything that it obviates the need for cunning or it s a get out of jail free card all by itself Finally after what felt like a very long time in the swamp the ending felt a bit rushed and I had lots of unfinished uestionsSo we still don t know what Zenia s dragon tear IS we don t know who is writing Zenia the cryptic warnings I suspect it s the dragon tear somehow will Jev and Zenia ever get together will Rhi find romance I hope that some of these uestions are answered in the next book Thi.

S is a review of the seriesI enjoy LIndsay s books They are contain fantasy action mild romance and silly lightweight dialogue They aren t for eople looking for serious hardcore fantasy The worldbuilding is never as in depth as some series The characters are the main
draw Her females are strong in their own various ways They contain Her females are strong in their own various ways They contain ragtag group of seemingly disparate characters that go together well anyway They rovide good escapist readingThis series is no different Her humor might not be for everyone so try out a sample However I like the silly and sarcastic dialogue and the lack of taking itself too seriously Another very solid offering by Lindsay Buroker I d recommend giving the series a go Typical book by this author I enjoy her work I ve read most of her books They have a good lot The characters are talented and she compliments the main characters well with supporting characters The dialog is smooth and easy If you like a leasant book with suspense drama mystery friends and camaraderie lus a little romance this is definitely a book and a series for y Actual rating 32142356 starsLet s try to make this moderately uick and ainless for once shall weOkay so this installment clearly suffers from second book syndrome Yes I know it s the third book in the series but there s no such thing as third book syndrome and if there is it Mama Ds pasta pizza probably isn t the same thing as second book syndrome and it s second book syndrome that this third book in this series is suffering from so there and stuff Indeed it is Thank for your unfailing support Spockie dearestuite sorry to report I am that this installment not nearly as joyfully entertaining as therevious ones is Why the shrimp is that you most obligingly ask Because this I most agreeably reply First the The Expected One (Magdalene Line Trilogy, plot is thinner than an anorexic razor shell and slower than an anaemic barnacle Also I finished the book only three days ago and had to look at the blurb to remember what it was about Not an overwhelminglyositive sign methinks Second said fairly inexistent Betty Fedora Issue One plot is so fairly inexistent that Buroker had to fill in the gaps with you know something and stuff To try and give some much needed substance to her story and stuff Only that the something in uestion is lovey dovey crap view spoiler hide spoiler Magic swords and rosesI stopped reading at than 95% through it I thought that the first two books had weaknesses but there was a lot to like too I hoped that the glimpses of realeople would develop into full Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work portraits at least they did The two main characters are just sexually repressed self deluded and reckless Instead of facing responsibilities challenging values or organ. E rejected his offer of a romantic relationship because of their status differences they have become good friends and she has years of experience finding criminals But this kidnapping is anything but simple Jev and Zenia find themselves entangled in a snarled. Izing their emotional houses they whine about how unfair a life ofrivilege is the noble or how wonderful life would be if they could get sexed up by and married to a noble the commoner In both cases the character isn t articularly choosy which is OK but what s with the love bit It would read better if the noble spent a few ducatscrownswhatever at a brothel and maybe even act like an adult and ten year veteran Admitting that I m good with an arranged
or get the finances order and let the title ass to a desperate candidate would make sense to me So far it ain t happening If the other co captain would go out on some dates with a normal adult not man chlid and after Off 13 putting on her big girlants Amata Means Beloved put it out there that she s in the market for a serious relationship and also drown any sexist clown with an attitude that would work for me She doesn t The elves and dwarves are much interesting individually and as a group The orcs ogres dragons and others seem like they could be interesting and maybe a little vicious brutal or murderous but really who doesn t have flaws As long as the major non human characters stay consistent the 2D uality of the cast would be OK except that the silliness of the romance overwhelms the betterarts of the bookAt the end it actually underscores the stupid decision making of the main human characters and turns the receding high aced action into a setup for kisses and roses Ugh The series is a romantic fantasy which is done as well as any other I guess if you re into that sort of thing Lindsay Buroker is on the top of my absolute favorite authors list She consistently writes the best science fiction steampunk sci fi romance done under the Juice pen name Ruby Lionsdrake and fantasy So now we come to her latest Duty Bound the third in her Agents of the Crown series and as wonderful as therior two This book and series once again show this author s incredible talent It s stars Jev and Zenia certainly have an overwhelming ile to handle in their roles as Crown Agents not just rescuing two dwarves one of whim is Jev s good friend and the city s master gem cutter but also deterring an invasion stopping an explosive lot to destroy half the city and oh yeah somehow deal with a romantic attraction they have to each other Fantastic stuff and aMarriage Or Get The Finances
total reading leasure But for the fact that I m literally dictatingreading leasure But #FOR THE FACT THAT I M LITERALLY DICTATING REVIEW # the fact that I m literally dictating review husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with Mob Mistress praises the book definitely deserves it Since I can t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read and it is easy to highly recommend Continues to entertain me Still laughing to the banter. Plot that threatens the entire kingdom while making them realize their true feelings for each other If they can’t rescue the dwarves deter an invasion and stop an explosivelot to destroy half the city they may lose everything they love Including each other. .
