I've agreed to work for a Demigod. My job? Find the spirit of his mother and release her before his vengeful father finds out and kills us all. Have I lost my mind? Thankfully, I don't have to do it alone. Kieran has brought in help. Bria Stevens is everything I'm not - magically savvy, edgy, and highly experienced. She's a Necromancer who loves to flirt with danger. With her help, I can suss out the clues surrounding the spirit of Kieran's mom, all while learning my potent and extremely terrifying magic.

Love this series so much! I cannot wait for the next book in the series. K.F. Breene does not disappoint. And as always, Khristine Hvam does a phenomenal job narrating.

It has been three years since the Destroyer sundered our world. The land is longer whole, but broken into pieces, most technology gone, and the continents shattered into an unrecognizable place. New monsters have risen from the depths, adding danger on top of danger. Through it all, the humans fight to survive as they compete not only with the supernaturals for food and resources, but their own kind as well. And me? The caravans of humans I pass - they look to me to save them. Only I am not the witch I once was.

When a favorite author starts a new series, it can be a scary experience for readers. What if it's not as good as her past books? What if I don't like it? You can put those fears aside with Shannon Mayer.

If you've read the Rylee Adamson series, you've already met Pamela and I promise that you will not want to miss this book! It's truly amazing and will leave you ready for the next book in the series. Buckle up and get ready to fall in love with Shannon Mayer's books all over again!

Khristine Ham does a stellar job narrating this book. She's truly fabulous and I love her English accent.

We survived the land of the Witch’s Reign - that much is true. But our arrival home is far from welcome. My idiot brother has taken it upon himself to ride off in search of a mythical healer, someone who might help him walk again. Assuming she doesn’t eat him first. Because she’s a dragon and happens to reside in the deepest reaches of the Dragon’s Ground. Like I said, idiot. I’d go after him myself, but his leaving is not the only problem I face. My mentor has forbidden me to leave the safety of the Stockyards. Her reasoning? That I am too weak to weather the coming storms.

If you loved Witch's Reign, you won't want to miss Dragon's Ground! It's a wild ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat and loving every minute of it!

Zam and Lila are such remarkable, inspirational, and well developed characters. They are both thought to have been born differently and don't fit in with the status quo. As a result, others don't always treat them kindly and though they struggle with not feeling good enough, they still work to better themselves and persevere.

During a difficult time in my life, Shannon Mayer's characters help inspire me to keep perservering and pushing on. I cannot thank her enough for that.

The narrator does a fabulous job as well!

Although we've been conditioned to think middle aged is practically a four-letter word, the realities of women in midlife today are far different from what our mothers experienced. Women in their 40s, 50s, and even 60s are living younger, vibrant lives. But influenced by our youth-obsessed culture, we fear that when we hit midlife, we stop being relevant and no longer have options - that it's simply too late for us.

Any additional comments?

While this book is geared toward women in their midlife, I think it's an important book for women of all ages to read. Couldn't we all use a little help with at least one of these things: self image, relationships, work, health/wellness, and spirituality? I'm still finding my way in life and through this book I realized that I am not alone. It also helped reiterate to me that it's never too late to change your life course and go after your dreams. Through her book, Dr. Robi Ludwig helped me examine what it is I want from life and decide on steps I need to take in order to continue on my chosen path.
