First I need to thank the amazing ladies over at Tsk Tsk What to Read, for this blog tour! Second, I need to warn you there will be a lot of gushing and the word "awesome"!  You have been warned!

This stop is a little different because I am review BOTH of DC Grace's books.

Book 1: Dragon Wings

Book Blurb:

Fiction is about to have a new breed of characters never before featured! The Amethyst Dragon series will introduce you to a whole new brand of creatures, called Dragon Fae. Making their home in Avalon, Dragon Fae are half dragon and half fairy. They are rare creatures, and are the chosen protectors of the fairy realm, as well as humans in the mortal realm. Dragon Fae can take on the form of a dragon, but when in fairy form they do not have wings. 

In Book One, Dragon Wings, we meet Dade Blue-Therror, the Amethyst Dragon. He is dubbed this not just for his amethyst eyes, but because he was born of a Blue clan Spring Fairy and a Red clan Summer Dragon. Dade is also Queen Mab's grandson, and heir to the throne of the Seelie Court. When he comes to the earthly realm with his family for his first assignment as Gaia's sentinel, he isn't prepared for what awaits him.

Shelby Mercy, high school junior and popular member of Shelbyville, Kentucky's "in crowd" has everything she ever wanted in life, including the affections of Marshall Townes, Shelby High's beloved football star. But she doesn't have the kind of adventure she reads about in her romance novels. When she literally runs into Dade at his mother's new shop on the Square, she can't get him out of her mind. But Dade isn't interested in getting involved with human girls. He avoids her at all cost, but something about her is hard to resist. The harder he fights it, the farther he falls.

Dragon Wings is a story of everlasting love, passion, fire and fury. Fairy tale meets modern romance in this exciting, thought-provoking story. As battle lines are drawn, darkness and light fight for control. And only one warrior was born to walk both light and dark - the Amethyst Dragon. But who can Dade really trust? The fairies who cannot lie, yet tell creative truths, or the mortals he has always been so suspicious of? Will he save the girl he loves and protect the two realms from the threat posed by the evil Winter Dragon?

The Amethyst Dragon series will take readers on a walk back in time, while still being firmly rooted in present day. In Dade's world, chivalry is not dead, and Avalon still exists on a plane that holds fast to simple truths. Fairy magic is real, Morgan le Fay is real, and with the help of Dade, the Amethyst Dragon, Camelot could rise again. Enjoy the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? This series is for you! So join us as the tale unfolds, and enter a world that few have glimpsed. Welcome to Avalon, the world of the elusive Dragon Fae. Slip through the gates, and fall in love with the Amethyst Dragon, his best friend Leo, the Sunrise Dragon, and Dade's aunt Tryamon, Keeper of the Forest. There's plenty of room, so bring your silver bough for the Ferryman. And remember, once you're there, you may never want to leave. But remember, with dragons, you can get burned...

My Review:

Oh, where do I begin!

Best Part of the Book: Dade! Yep that says it all!  It took me a a few chapters to figure out was going on because it was very fast paced.  However, once it all started to come together it was AWESOME!  I love how DC Grace writes.  Each chapter is the characters point of view.  I love that because you can see what is going on from all levels.  This is an action packed book!  Dragons, fae, hot guys and (did I say) HOT GUYS!  I love Shelby!  At first she tried to fight the attraction to Dade but .. well, you know!!  However, DC Grace leaves you guessing for more! I was surprised that was a little more "adult" than I originally thought.  No, not THAT Adult but DC Grace is very respectful but its AWESOME!!  DC Grace does an amazing job twisting everything together and you don't feel so lost in these two different worlds!

Not so great about the book:  I never compare authors.  I try to make each about them.  I am making an exception this time.  Rachel Higginson, who is the author of the Star Crossed series, is the only author to make me THROW (yes, throw) my Kindle....until DC Grace!  At the end of this book I was yelling and (almost) tossed my kindle across the room!  The ending of this book KILLED me!!!

Now unto Book 2: Pixie Dust

Book Blurb:

In the shadowy recesses of Orbis Alia, Avalon's darkest realm, the Winter Dragon weaves his intricate, evil spell like a spider web; delicately poised to ensnare his prey once and for all.
Yet somewhere in the land of Tir na nog, Dade Blue-Therror fights back with magic if his own. The crown prince of the Seelie Court will not lose his Chuisle, Shelby, to the madness of his greatest foe.
The battle of good versus evil is about to begin. Father against son, brother against brother.  And for Dademond, the stakes have never been higher.

My Review:

OMG! This book was crazy! (In a good way)

Best part of book:  After the emotional roller from book 1, I didn't think it could be any worse.....WELL, I WAS WRONG!  DC Grace is the greatest part of the book!  She wrote a masterpiece in this.  Just when I thought I had it figured out *BAM* another twist.  I didn't think my emotions could handle it.  OMG!  By the time I got to the end of the book I was a "hot-mess"!  Then after all of that the book ends, on one of the biggest cliffhangers I have read in a long time!  I can't believe this! Now, forgive me for not going more in depth - but I really don't want to spoil it.

Not so great about the book:  UuuuuMmmmm...I don't have book 3 yet! That is what is not great!
