Review @TJShawAuthor - Sleeping Dragon Stirs Part Two by T.J. Shaw (Outside the Veil #2)

Sleeping Dragon Stirs
Outside the Veil #2
by T.J. Shaw

Goodreads blurb:  Part two in the exciting epic fantasy romance serial trilogy, Rogue Dragon Rising.

As the day of her awakening nears, Amari Hawke struggles to control the beast inside her. Basking in the energy of the approaching Trinity moon, her animal’s strength has increased to the point it can control Amari’s mind and body. Fearing she is about to slip into madness, Amari is forced into a tough choice.

In a desperate attempt to save Amari and her beast, Jaxon Blackthorn encourages his cadre, the men in his trusted circle, to establish mental links with her, but when his plans fail and Amari’s animal exerts control, he must fight for the beautiful woman who is lost to her beast.

Together, can Amari and Jaxon’s developing bond for each other overcome the urges driving Amari’s animal as they also thwart an unseen enemy vying to keep them apart?

Please note: Alpha Dragon Awakes, the third book in the serial trilogy and exciting conclusion to Jaxon and Amari’s story, is set to release in December, 2018.

About the Author:  As a child, TJ thrived in the Arizona desert. By the age of five she was riding horses through cotton fields and by eleven bought her first motorcycle, a Honda 125cc dirt bike. Growing up with teachers as parents meant traveling during the summer. Hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, climbing pyramids, surviving earthquakes, and flying in hot air balloons were just some of her adventures. An avid day dreamer, she would lose herself in mystical worlds and far off places limited only by her imagination. After choosing an academic scholarship over an athletic basketball scholarship, she graduated law school and accepted a position as a Deputy County Attorney. However, prosecuting felony crimes was not as exciting as she hoped, so she traded in her briefcase and the courtroom for a Glock and patrol car. She worked the road as a police officer for five years and now tells officers what to do as a policy writer for a police department. TJ writes from her heart by incorporating her dreams and experiences to create strong, passionate characters who must overcome personal flaws to survive against the challenges of traversing through magical realms, undiscovered planets, and apocalyptic catastrophes.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I do plan to collect this set when it is in one set.

This is the second book in a serial trilogy, and this means that there are 3 parts that go together to tell one story, and they end in cliffhangers until the 3rd book.  Some people may not like serials, and if you are one of them wait and read all 3 books together once they publish.  This is for adults only and does have sensitive topics including abduction and selling people.

This is a unique shifter world where not all shifters can handle the transformation and those who don’t go rogue and hurt people.  In this world, shifters are divided into carnivores and herbivores where carnivores tend to protect those under their care.  Amari still doesn’t remember her past.  Jaxon wants Amari as his mate, but his past is haunting him after what his dad endured.  His cadre helps him with everything from protection to advice.  Amari’s family now knows she is alive.  There is a murder mystery, and the Protectorate rep has arrived in the area to prepare for Trinity.  So much going on, I can’t wait to see how everything works on in the end.  Amari is protective and fierce, love her strong character.  Jaxon and his cadre make a great family and nest, and I think Amari fits in perfectly!

I highly recommend to any shifter fans who love new unique worlds!  If serials aren’t your thing, wait until the whole set publishes because you don’t want to miss this set and story!
