    Light of Dawn by Angela Colsin a light and dreamy four star read This is the second book in the Crucible series, this is a paranormal romance with a twist of mystery and intrigue with some great characters thrown in to keep the mix really fresh, the story flows with a natural plot, even though its spans many years the story doesn t take forever to get where it s going, as I have found some stories where the time line is set over many years, there can be too much time spent on the change of time and not enough on the actual story, here it flows naturally Even though its book two in the series I can be read as a stand alone Ulric Dra Kai is a mercenary of Draconian descent, he has been sent on a journey to find a curse box, he was hired and given some information on how to find it When he finds out a mere female may have information on the box he sets out to get the information from her, it won t be hard, she is only human after all Ulric has sworn of women until he finds his true mate, and he won t have to worry, as a human couldn t be his true mate, could they The Human in question is Charlotte Mulligan who seems to be having a rotten time of life, her marriage ended after only three months, after being told she is sexually impotent hasn t helped her at all, until one day her life changed with the delivery of a trinket box with a strange note Here are many ups and downs in the book as Ulric shows Charlotte a different side to herself and others that she has never known, whether it s for the best or not only time will tell.

    A solid 3.75 stars.I enjoyed this book, even than Book 1 of the series Blue Moon We meet Ulric and his sidekick, Isaac, in Blue Moon and this book is Ulric s story Ulric is a Draconian, a descendent of humans mixed with one of five Dragon Houses Charlotte is a mortal at the beginning of the story, but there is to her than being a mere mortal Ulric is hired to find a mysterious mystical item and runs into Charlotte by way of a divination made to him by a supernatural being Adventures ensue from there Needless to say, Charlotte is not exactly what Ulric expects He thinks he is boss but she shows him that she is not a pushover I like a strong heroine and I really enjoyed that aspect of their relationship Adventures fighting vampires, each other and themselves all make for an interesting story worth reading I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Light of Dawn by Angela Colsin is a paranormal fantasy romance story, that honestly had me hooked after the first chapter It s well written, the plot is amazing, the characters were brilliant and seemed like real people, it s just a great book.Colsin managed to create a world that was connected to ours, but was still different and she did that beautifully There s political differences and sides, hidden histories, just everything was written wonderful The plot was interesting, it s something that s been sort of done before, an immortal supernatural creature meets a mortal and they eventually fall in love etc., but she managed to put a fresh feel and spin on it The characters were relatable, especially Charlotte our heroine She s shown as being stubborn and strong willed but she s also shown as being vulnerable at times, especially in the beginning of the story when she s recently divorced Ulric has suffered in the past, and you get to know some of it in the beginning of the series and is shown in this book He s something of a control freak about things, but it s very easy to understand why he s like that.They were just really well written, as were the rest of the characters, though Charlotte and Ulric are my favorites.Colsin is a new to me author, but after reading this, I m going to be keeping an eye out for any of her books Pretty much my only two complaints with this book is that I hadn t read the first one yet, and that I have to wait to find out what happens next I would give this 5 out of 5 stars I can t wait to read this series and to read feom this author
