About the Author

Dana Marie Bell is a bestselling author with Samhain Publishing and has consistently earned top reviews. She lives with her soulmate and husband, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it’s a Pekinese. She’s been heard to describe herself as “vertically challenged” and “a lapsed brunette.”


More About the Author

Dana Marie Bell wrote her first short story when she was thirteen years old. She attended the High School for Creative and Performing Arts for creative writing, where freedom of expression was the order of the day. When her parents moved out of the city and placed her in a Catholic high school for her senior year she tried desperately to get away, but the nuns held fast, and she graduated with honors despite herself. She's now a best selling author with Samhain Publishing and Carina Press.

Dana has lived primarily in the Northeast with a brief stint on the US Virgin Island of St. Croix. She lives with her soul-mate and husband Dusty, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it's a Pekinese. She's been heard to describe herself as "vertically challenged" and "a lapsed brunette." Dana also suffers from arthritis and can be seen walking with a cane or tooling around in her mobility scooter. Her condition was the inspiration for Belle's hip injury in Steel Beauty.

Artistic Vision is Dana Marie Bell's third visit to her Grey Court world, and is the best one so far.

Shane Dunne uses his visions to create magnificent art, and the most beautiful piece he's ever done is of his mate, Akane Russo. Akane is one of Robin Goodfellow's Blades, and assigned to guard and protect Shane from the treachery and plotting of the Malmayne clan. She isn't anyone's mate, no matter how gorgeous Shane is. Until danger surfaces and threatens to take Shane away forever-then Akane will do whatever it takes to save him and claim him.

As the Prophecy comes closer to being fulfilled, the danger around the Dunne and Blackthorn clans increases. When Shane is poisoned by someone he looked on as a friend, the only way to save him is something Akane is afraid may take him from her forever. She never wanted a mate, but now that they are together, no one is going to hurt him again. But which of the Malmayne clan is leading this latest round of treachery and betrayal? Can Akane dig deep enough to uncover the guilty party? Can she do what must be done to save the man she has come to love, in spite of her resolve?

I have been looking forward to Shane and Akane's story for a while, and it did not disappoint. I love the depth Ms. Bell adds to each of her characters, and the many layers of this very magical and mystical realm, with the Black, White and Grey Courts. This is a thrill ride of a story, with passion and danger throughout, but there is a wonderfully wicked sense of humor here at work as well. The characters have such vivid personalities, I expected to look up and see them materialize in front of me.

Akane Russo is loyal, brave and determined to do her job: protect Shane Dunne even if does suffer from a delusion that she is his mate.

"The child of Dunne will one day perform an act that will change our world"

I would say that it is pretty obvious that the child in question is Shane Dunne and after reading this one I have to say I have new question: What does the Black Queen want with not just Shane but all the Dunne's? That was what I was left with at the end of this book but I am jumping ahead and I apologize but I just finished it so the end is very fresh in my mind.

Reading how Shane was trying to "woo" his mate was as very creative as his art work. Akane really just couldn't walk away from the puzzle that was her "Jethro" or her puzzle box. I never knew dragons were addicted to puzzles.

I have to say I was really surprised by one twist in the story that I didn't see coming and it wasn't the fact the that the Hob had a child as he probably has several but as I don't want to give that much of the book away, I will say I never expected one of the Hob's children to be a bad guy. And then of course Cecilia and Henri, I sure hope they aren't first cousin 'cause that has way to much icky eww to go a long way.

As I was reading I came across an inconsistency which is an anomaly in this book that I don't think I have seen in any of Dana Marie Bells books. Dana's attention to detail is phenomenal when it comes to the worlds she creates so I was actually surprised. So now to tease one of my favorite authors by asking (and yes I have to ask because I can't resist); when did Leo become the big brother? I thought Shane was the older brother and Leo the older brother?

I'm always worried that sequels will never live up to the expectations created by the previous works...but Ms. Bell just keeps the ball rolling with book 3 of the Gray Court series. Great as a stand-alone book or when read in order, it keeps you on your toes with just enough 'supernatural' elements to surprise...but it's the love story that truly captivates. Definitely worth reading!

Another great book by an author known for her fantastic paranormal romance. I love the use of pre-existing races such as what she's done with the leprechauns and of course Robin Goodfellow. I wasn't such a big fan of the way that the leading male character Shane was constantly having these smug moments of male satisfaction as he duped is mate into falling for him but the characters were still fabulously written and the book is definitely worth reading.
