Summary

Sara Donovan landed a job at the Carlton museum organizing previous documents and journals. One day, the precious gems exhibit, Fire & Ice, arrived at the Carlton as their original location was not available. With the high level of security, everything was safe. Then the lights went out and came back on after a few minutes. The security checked and all appeared well.

But, why was Sara’s dog yelping at the safe?

Then, Sara noticed that a few journals were missing from the inventory….

Conclusion

Being at the wrong place at the wrong time was all I could think about whenever Sara got into trouble. The ending was very logical and I liked treasure stories.

More and more deaths began to appear in this small town. Marie knew she had to do something….

Conclusion

This was only part one of the story “Infestation” so I had many questions that needed an answer. Not sure why it was split into two books?

Summary

The sun elves won and enslaved the human race. The Blood Lottery invited all humans who turned eighteen years old to enter. If they were chosen, they would become the mistress or even a wife of a sun elf. That would mean that they could leave a life of desolation and poverty. This was how the sun elves tried to outbred the human race.

Ava was working on the Wall to support her mother and sister. As a child, she was stared at for her silver hair. How odd it was for a human…. She was going to turn eighteen, but she was determined not to enter the Blood Lottery. She would rather work hard on building the Wall.

Then, she fell off of the Wall and met the most mesmerizing eyes of the Prince….

Conclusion

This was a fantasy story that involved elves, wyverns (dragon) and magic. By the end of the story, I really wanted to find out what happened to the protagonist.

I enjoyed historical novels. This one spoke of the prejudices of races in the gold mining days. I became quite emotional as I was reading this novel.

This was a quick and interesting read!

There were some slang that I recognized, like “Bless your heart.” This phrase could be used sarcastically among ladies!

It would be interesting to ask a local Texan to see if they agree with these terms….
