If it lives, it can die…
For a thousand years the Ilyium druids have hunted the Dracones without mercy.
At seven, in a terrifying moment, Tierney lost her world and fled to Earth, keeping her true nature secret from humans.
But a nightmarish past is not easy to escape.
Now, years later, that truth is abundantly clear every time she looks into the eyes of the man she secretly loves, and sees a torment that draws her to him even as he pushes her away.
Jax battles his desires for Tierney alongside his inner demons, ashamed to speak of a past he cannot forget.
Frustrated by her efforts to connect to Jax, Tierney is unprepared when the Ilyium resurface. Ancient instincts triggered, she and Jax are tested in ways they never imagined. Will Tierney and Jax overcome the legacy of their past, or will they be destroyed?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in Scarborough Ontario, Canada, Sheri-Lynn has lived in many different places. The main ones being Toronto, Montreal, London Ontario, Alabama, Texas, & Alberta. Sheri-Lynn now resides in British Columbia, Canada with her husband, three kids, one dog, three cat’s & numerous chickens. Sheri-Lynn never imagined she’d one day be an author. Instead, she grew up riding and working with racehorses, drawing and selling animal artwork, and of course reading. Sheri-Lynn fell in love with reading at age twelve when she read The Black Stallion series by Walter Farley. She has not stopped reading. With a wide variety of reading interests, Sheri-Lynn’s passion presently is the paranormal romance genre. One day, after reading an unsatisfying book, she decided to write her own book, with her own characters, doing what she wanted them to do. She began to type and the characters came to life in her head. She has never looked back.
Going to start off by saying this should not be read unless you are 17+ there are aspects of Rape and torture. As well as Strong Sexual Content.
Now that I got that out of the way! This book defiantly is a piece of work. Dracones is definitely dark fantasy. It was so beautifully written.
I did have a few issues with the talk about Rape (This can be a trigger warning) I was unaware of that when I talked to the Author about reviewing her book. That is another reason why it took me so long to get through. I had to stop so I wouldn’t freak out at certain points. That was my biggest problem with the book.
Other than that the Characters were nicely written and I loved the story line. It kept me going and I kept wanting to know what happened!
I don’t want to give away too much of the plot or the outcomes of the book but GAHHH. Jaxxxxx. *Whistle* That hunk of Dracone.
(Also this book is Perm-free (70% sure) on Amazon so if you want to give it a try you should!)
I was sent this book by Author, Sheri-Lynn Marean, for review. This in no way affects my opinion on the book. (Huge thank you to Sheri-Lynn Marean ❤ )
