I Love young adult fiction, mysteries, clean stories with little swearing. Regency Romances are my favorite. I love fantasy, fantasy adventures, biographies, & historical fiction

    Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.

    Story

    I avoid romances because of the smut in many of the recent ones and almost turned it off when they said that this book was produced by Harlequin and Audible. Eeek! However, I decided I couldn't judge it before I heard it and so with a little fear and trepidation I started listening. I was quite pleasantly surprised. There is little swearing. The story is good and the world is interesting. I'd love to be able to fly, although I'd settle for magical powers! There is a lot of tension and you aren't sure who the main character can trust. I am happy to say that there is no smut. I don't know what the rest of the books in the series are like, but I liked this one and am ready to listen to the next one in the series. There is a ton we don't know about the capabilities of the main character and much we don't know about the past of other main characters. Any book that has a dragon as one of the top supporting cast is good in my book. I love dragons! Flying people and Cat People add interest into this world as well. Mirrors that act as IM tools and ancient magical runes with portents of OLD magic make the world an interesting place. If you enjoy fantasy adventures this might be a good choice for you.
