and this is a dandy beginning. Banning is king of the Lunar-White Dragons but because he had recklessly pissed off a wizened old witch (she had cursed him) he now found himself a gargoyle statue looking out over a water fountain. "His giant ego, fed by his own aspirations of glory, had not only led to his downfall, but that of his Clan." Thus sets in motion the start of this series. His own salvation rests in finding his mate. The only one who can save him from his endless predicament. Ms. Mills has woven a fantastic story of two people who meet in their dreams and eventually come face to face. Myanna is such a strong woman with a backbone fit for a berserker's mate but she has a giddy refreshing innocence surrounding her. She has suffered much with the loss of her mother. She seeks solace in her special place mentally and verbally talking about her loneliness with the dragon statue that for some reason she feels a special connection to. Between these two a friendship is developed and the powerful force of love is discovered. The reader is also treated to an intriguing hint of book #2 at the end of this story that holds a promise of great reading to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good!

This book had me hooked from the 1st page & I didn’t want to stop until I finished reading it.

Banning was cursed by an evil witch & lived his life out as a bronze statue; that is until Myanna came along.

Myanna, went to the dragon statue/fountain to make a wish, that didn’t come true. But, she kept coming back to talk about her day or her woes to the statue like she felt some kind of pull. Then 4 days in a row she didn’t come & not because she didn’t want to but because she was being held hostage.

With the help of some new friends Banning was able to be freed of his curse & go save his mate.

But, now you’ll have to read the book to find out how that happened & if he does indeed save his mate, Myanna.

Another Clan is introduced and his suffering is as bad as those before him. But in these new tales something else is coming through, the uniting of these mates strengthens the forces of good, each one fulfilling a prophecy foretold. Native peoples are adding their mysticism to the story, infusing it with even more unity

Untamed: House of Berserkers: A Reverse Harem Romance

Wicked Reform School: Reform or die… it’s my only choice.

They call me a monster. They say that my bloodlust is too dangerous. That my other form is too powerful.

But I can’t change what I am.

A berserker. A species that has so few females we’re more legend than reality. But the day I shifted into my monstrous-form and killed, it didn’t matter. Not that I’m rare. Not that the creatures I slaughtered deserved it.

Sent to a reform school as a last chance before execution, I now have to survive amongst the worst of my kind. And there’s a reason people fear berserkers. A good reason.

Not only that, but my rare ability has attracted the attention of a dangerous man who will stop at nothing to have me. Unfortunately for him, three supernaturals have sworn to protect me.

The three men might be the key to my survival; they could even be the fated mates that can love me, both sides of me. And yet, even if they can keep me safe from my enemies, they can’t keep me safe from myself.

If I show my other side again, I’m dead.
And the thing is, there’s no taming a berserker.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Interesting Now that is a very interesting way of dealing with problems. To put it mildly I can’t wait to read this next one!

Reverse Harems and Shared Worlds

As the song goes: “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet!”

Thanks to the wonderful ARCs that I read, I was introduced to Reverse Harems (RH) awhile ago. I currently have reviewed 2 different series by Heather Long that fall into this category. They are “Heart of the Nebula” and “Untouchable”.

Now Shared Worlds are something that I first came across many years ago with the “Thieves World” series. In that series, each book contained several short stories. An author could borrow the characters from a different author, but couldn’t kill them off. It made for some very interesting stories.

Again thanks to Ms. Long, I found a few new series that combined both Reverse Harems with a Shared World. I’ve come across 2 different series that deal either with a Reform School, “Wicked Reform School” or a Prison, “Paranormal Prison”. They are just beginning so I have to wait patiently for the next ones!

Wicked Reform School is a juvenile detention school. Each type of paranormal being has their own dormitory called a “House.” An adult is named as “Head of House” and has rule over the students there. Students attend standard classes in the morning, and specialized classes in the afternoons. Being late to class could get you sent to the detention center, not a good thing! The motto of this ‘School’ is “Reform or Die” and they mean that literally! Once a year each House has what is called a “Culling.” Surviving that does not automatically mean you leave the school. The best I can tell you is “Stick around, this is about to get interesting!”

There are actually several different series using the term “Paranormal Prison.” The one I’m reading features Reverse Harems. The prison is called Nightmare Penitenary and with good reason I might add! You’re sentenced to the prison and it might be for a month, it might be for life. Prisoners are segregated according to the severity of their sentence just like in real life. Dying in here is a distinct possibility!
