Don't just fight the system…burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn't a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.


Chris Cannon lives in Southern Illinois with her husband and three dogs, Pete the shih Tzu who sleeps on her desk while she writes, Molly the ever-shedding yellow lab, and Tyson the sandwhich-stealing German Sheperd Beagle. She believes coffee is the Elixir of Life. Most evenings after work, you can find her sucking down caffeine and writing fire-breathing paranormal adventures. Going Down in Flames is the first book in Chris Cannon's shape-shifting dragon series. 

Hi Readers! I was given the amazing opportunity to read a ARC of Bridges Burned by Chris
Cannon. Since this was the second book in the Going Down in Flames series, I purchased the first book to read as the plot sounded incredibly intriguing. I am so glad I did as the story was fast paced and a delight to read. I gave this a four out of five stars on Goodreads. It also left me wanting more, which made me extremely grateful for the ARC I received. 

I immediately started the next book, Bridges Burned, which was awesome! I could not put this novel down. I gave this a five out of five stars. Once again, Chris Cannon's writing was a delight to read and fast paced. I love that about her writing and because of this I can not wait for more of her novels or other creative works. I also love her characters and I find my self loving to hate her protagonists like Directorate or Ferrin. I also really liked how she kept answering questions then creating more as you read. The one thing I was not a fan of was the CLIFFHANGER! I do not want to wait for the next book, but I will because I am currently in love with this series. :D In conclusion, I highly enjoyed both novels and I cannot wait for the third novel.

I would highly recommend that you buy this book if you have read Going Down in Flames. Or if you have not read Going Down in Flames you should buy that, then continue on to the sequel as they are really good.

Thanks for reading and I hope you guys are having a good reading month!

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...

2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Soul Meaning by A.D. Starrling

My Rating: 4/5 Stars
Average Rating: 3.81 Stars
Length: 10 hrs 1 min

*I received a free audiobook of Soul Meaning in exchange for an honest review*

This was a fast paced, action filled adventure involving immortals, hunters, and multiple explosions!  It centers around a halfbreed of two immortal races named Soul. For about the first three hundred years of his life, he was being hunted down by hunters from both sides . However, the hunt ends for a while, but it begins again years after causing Soul and Reid Hasley, his human business partner, to go on the run to find out why Soul is being hunted once again. This leads them to discovering many secrets, allies, and enemies. The immortal concept of them living for as long as it takes for them to die seventeen times was really cool, but confusing. I really liked it, but why seventeen lives... that seem like such a random number. Anyway it was still interesting and they gave me a Highlander vibe, which could never be a bad thin…
