Mirna is ignorant and irresponsible. For example, she puts a love spell on a person and when things go bad, as was to be expected when playing with people’s free will, she refers to it as a simple mistake, hates the person and cannot believe that she ever found him attractive! That is wrong on so many levels. Not once she thinks, oh, interfering with people’s free will is wrong and I should have never done it. Furthermore, she is not rushing at all to get the love spell neutralised from that poor bastard. Another example is later on when she sees a dragon, and tries to protect her friend, another dragon, from a dragon he is related to. How ignorant do you have to be to think that a family of dragons would allow some unknown dragon to threaten them in their backyard? I have no idea if these inconsistencies were plot fillers or what, but for me these were just huge points of irritation.
Danila is also quite irresponsible. He breaks an almost irreplaceable magical stone and then feels really bad about it for a very short time, never even suggesting replacing it. Mirna is exceptionally forgiving when it comes to that incident.
Danila is also very shy about being a dragon. Why? There is no need for hiding in Nocturne Falls from other supernaturals, more specifically from Mirna. And moreover, his family is so incredibly annoying that they would make me change the continent, not just a town. His mother’s mood swings are equally annoying, ranging from criticising and nagging to loving and understanding.
Mirna and Danila were exceptionally close friends since young age, until Mirna left town for greener pastures and completely cut ties with Danila. Now she is back and completely shocked finding out how much her departure has affected him. Really??? Were they close friends or not? How can a departure of a very close friend or the closest friend not affect someone?
Then there is a romance, a very forced flat romance, not sparkling great romance, just two undecided people who might or might have not ended up together, and I have to admit that I could not make myself care about them. On the positive side, this was one of the rare books in the series that went exploring the actual falls of Nocturne Falls.
Original series are not necessary for this particular story, as it works as a standalone as well. However, if you decide to embark on the amazing adventure of Kristin Painter’s Nocturne Falls series, the reading order is: The Vampire's Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1), The Werewolf Meets His Match (Nocturne Falls #2), The Gargoyle Gets His Girl (Nocturne Falls, #3), The Professor Woos The Witch (Nocturne Falls, #4), and The Witch’s Halloween Hero (Nocturne Falls #4.5) in Spell of the Ball Anthology, The Werewolf's Christmas Wish (Nocturne Falls #4.6) in Hex the Halls Anthology, The Vampire’s Fake Fiancée (Nocturne Falls #5), A Vampire's Valentine Surprise (Nocturne Falls #5.5), Miss Frost Solves A Cold Case : A Nocturne Falls Mystery (Jayne Frost #1), The Shifter Romances The Writer (Nocturne Falls #6), Miss Frost Ices The Imp : A Nocturne Falls Mystery (Jayne Frost #2), The Vampire’s True Love Trials (Nocturne Falls #6.5) in Taming the Vampire collection, Miss Frost Saves The Sandman : A Nocturne Falls Mystery (Jayne Frost #3), The Dragon Finds Forever (Nocturne Falls #7), The Vampire's Accidental Wife (Nocturne Falls #8), Miss Frost Cracks A Caper (Jayne Frost #4), When Birdie Babysat Spider: A Jayne Frost Short (Jayne Frost #4.5), Miss Frost Braves the Blizzard (Jayne Frost #5), and ever growing series of Nocturne Universe Novels by guest authors, which surpassed 30 by now. Great world to get yourself immersed in.
This was a light hearted story. I'm giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. The author did a good job of making her story mesh into the NFU atmosphere, but I would have liked to have seen a little more references to the main NF to pull it in a a little more. In addition, I would have liked to have read a little more about the druids, the differences in their magic vs the witches since that seemed to play a part in her decisions. Overall an very enjoyable and sweet read.
A kindle world book from the universe of Kristen Painter’s Nocturne Falls. A town that celebrates Halloween every day so it’s paranormal residents can live openly.
A Druid and a dragon once were friends. Mirna and Danila have gone their own ways in life, but an inappropriate spell gone awry has brought them back together. If Mirna can tame his dragon, perhaps it’s a pairing meant to be.
A captivating novella. At one point I wondered about timing, but the author pulled it off in the end with a little backtracking between points of view.
Overall a fantastic new addition to the Nocturne Falls Universe.
