What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Dragons make life complicated. Extremely complicated.

After returning from Idaho, I was hoping to have time to figure things out with Zav—also known as Lord Zavryd, the dragon who claimed me as his mate without asking—but the dark elves are up to their old tricks again.

Actually, they’re up to far more deadly tricks, using more powerful magic than I knew existed. I have no idea how I’m going to stop them, but if I can’t, my entire city and everybody I care about could be obliterated.

To make matters worse, Zav’s sister has shown up and is rooting around in my life. His family doesn’t approve of me, and she plans to put an end to our relationship… one way or another.

Thoughts on Elven Doom

4.5 Rounded Up

I just love these characters! Val’s snark alone is worth indulging in this series, but add in Willard’s own brand of sarcasm, Zav’s oblivious superiority, Nin’s quiet business sense, along with the wealth of other backup and background characters, and you’ve got a treasure trove of humor, action and individual souls that stand out from the crowd.

This installment sees Val advancing her relationship with Zav… kind of, while fending off the overzealous suspicions of his Dragon Sister, a sister determined to prove that Val is out to harm her Dragon Lord Brother. In all fairness, she has reason for her distrust, but it makes for a dicey, and dangerous, situation, one that is compounded by the deadly attention of the Dark Elves.

In true Buroker style, it’s fun, intense, wit filled and exciting.

My Final Verdict on Elven Doom

A wonderful installment that gets to the nitty gritty of this action filled, emotion laden adventure. Hysterical to boot. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
