Tales from Verania #2
Once upon a time, the wizard’s apprentice Sam of Wilds got his happily ever after in the arms of his cornerstone, Knight Commander Ryan Foxheart. A year has passed, and while Sam’s been captured five or six more times since then, things are pretty great. His parents are happy, Gary and Tiggy still eat sass for breakfast, Randall is somehow alive despite being older than the gods, the King rules with a gentle hand, Kevin the dragon is as gross as ever, Morgan sighs a lot, Ryan continues to be dashing and immaculate, and Sam is close to convincing Prince Justin they will be best friends forever.
Life is good.
Until it’s not.
Because Vadoma, the leader of the Gypsy clan and Sam’s grandmother, has come to the City of Lockes with a dire prophecy written in the stars: a man of shadows is rising and will consume the world unless Sam faces his destiny and gathers the five dragons of Verania at his side.
And she brings along her second-in-command, a man named Ruv.
Ruv, who Vadoma says is Sam’s true cornerstone.
TJ is back in Verania with all it's sass, snark ridiculousness and the big D....no not that, DESTINY! You pervs!
It's been about a year and other then Sam getting sexed up by one delicious Knight Commander on a regular basis, things are pretty much the same. And then comes the vision, and a visit from a certain Grandmother and all Hell breaks loose. Because you see, there are secrets in Sam's life and he just might not be able to survive those secrets.
It's going to take the whole gang, more dragons and possibly a Wolf to complete this adventure.(Because we are not calling it a destiny)
This has everything that I loved about the first book and more and I just wanted to keep reading! I laughed out loud a lot, groaned a few times and even got a little teary eyed. Pick it up for the dragons, come back for the snark!
