Ge for an honest review I received a free ARC copy of this book from NetGalley in xchange for an honest reviewThis was a fun and pretty uniue fairytale at least to me but I ll admit that I don t know a lot of them past the really popular ones If I had to compare it to something Bangkok Wakes to Rain else I would say Beauty and the Beast but only on a few points really and I absolutely loathe BtB and Injoyed this so My only real complaint like another reviewer said is that there is no actual dragon Drachen isn t The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery exactly human but he doesn t have any non human featuresither and if there s one thing our generation loves it s monster porn But it was still a very nice short story and had a definite fairy tale bedtime story feel to it with a bit of a smut detour But if you re not really one for Darkmere erotica there is only actually onexplicit scene right in the middle and you could Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? easily skip it and the rest of the story would still make sense I really loved this story It was short but the pacing was wonderful and kept me on thedge of my seat It was fantasy fairytale for adults and reminded me a little of Beauty and the Beast but with an original twist The Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den ending was satisfying and served as a wonderful HEA resolution People thinks short stories are meant to always feel as if they could have been longer and better that it is a wasted chance to do a great novel or maybe a series Frostbite could have certainly been a great novel but that doesn t mean it wasn t anually great storyThe characters felt very real a lot and their feelings the way they acted and behaved it all seemed to be natural and honest just as what they felt said did and Scraps Of The Untainted Sky everything in between It was all so genuine I amost felt in the skin of one of the protagonists a matter of personal likes I need longer books to be completely insideAlso I agree with those telling that this is like a fairy tale The simple stylenchanting atmosphere and the general idea on how The Eric Carle Gift Set everything works and means something in this beutiful world the author created can only but make the reader daydream about living a love as sweet as this oneTherotic content I ll onl said I saw it all on my head in HD uality The xplicit description didn t make it look like a sht Grey s porn book which I am thankful for as they still managed to be sweet although with a significant heat level very high if anyone asksYes there are a few overused ideas cliches that some might dislike in here but it is because of the structure that they didn t bother at all but on the contrary highlighted the special and original ideas on the story as if they were the perfect complement for itThe nding didn t surprise me I knew where the characters were going to Fashion Design Course end at but it is impressive that the author could play with my feelings and make me think for a while that I was wrong as I didn t see coming what Rainor did at thend. Hings he never found in his little village But on his way to make his latest delivery the unthinkable happens and Rainor fears that if he asks for the cure he needs to live he'll lose the man he's coming to lov.
