It is in the second half of the book that Ahi really takes to traveling. He ends up visiting two different continent. It is in this book that I showcase the scale of the world. During his journey, Ahi meets new people and dragons. I expand the draconic lore and I add a couple of new flavors into the mix. So, if you like dragons, this second half of the book is going to be more to your liking. I also go into details about the other types of creatures that call this world their home.

Though all innocent babes do not develop into monsters, all monsters develop from innocent babes. We prefer fiction to reality, because thoughts of the former easily yield to denials of reason, while the latter only reminds us of our common origins in the primitive.
Steal a private moment now and listen to your inner voice. It whispers. Of rising mutant domination amid apocalyptic wastes; of grotesque human chimeras practicing ancient arts; of despicable capital criminals kept in unbreakable cages and of the flawed human beings who hunt them; of original sin and practical modern curse, and of chastisement before perverse gods; such twisted threads weave life's strange tapestry. Of depravity, here find endless expositions, and of monsters, seven.
Mankind is on the brink of extinction. A deadly plague sweeps the globe like a tsunami causing the dead to rise and prey on the living. When there s no more room in Hell is a horror/action set in a post apocalyptic world filled with suspense, drama, humour, grief and action. While one brother fights his way home through the horrors and confusion of a savage landscape from the Meat Grinder that is Iraq, the other finds himself as the leader of a rag-tag band of survivors striving to survive against the onslaught of the dead.
Eric de Vries. Looks like millions. Worth billions.
But to keep his money, this wayward heir needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.
Too bad I've hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away.
The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.
Still... what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?
Yeah, that's what I thought.
I'll see you at the church.

Miranda Schaffer just wants a little freedom for the start of college. Having convinced her parents to let her live in the house left to them by her great-aunt Janine, she's excited. That is, until her classmate, Cole, tries to convince her that the house is one of the tools needed by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to raise Hell.
Cole identifies himself as a Guardian, whose sole purpose in life is to prevent the gateway to Hell -- supposedly Miranda's basement -- from falling into the wrong hands. Miranda brushes off his concerns, thinking he's crazy.
On top of that, the cute real estate agent interested in the house is, according to Cole, one of the Four Horsemen, and she should stay away from him at all costs. That's easier said than done when she can't get him out of her head.
Will her indecision leave her with Hell to pay?
This book had me gripped from the first page and had me swooning after both main characters. Thila was a strong, beautiful and educated woman - something that is often missing in many romance novels, in favour of the secretary-and-the-boss type relationship. The fact that Thila was interested in more than just romance and that she had her own career and goals was gripping to me and I could see myself liking her more and more as the story progressed. Arnav was a character I really liked reading about. As Thila is used to being the boss, I liked that Arnav took control of situations, but also knew when to back down. He was definitely a swoon-worthy main character and I would love to read more about both characters.
There were a couple of parts within the story that were raunchy and steamy, so if you don't like those aspects then this book may not be for you.
A dream-come-true-wedding in Vegas with a quickie living-in-the-real-world-divorce in Reno would solve Thila's ...

THEY KNEW NOTHING OF THE CURSE WHEN THEY FOUND THE JEWEL: A LARGE COLOMBIAN EMERALD EMBEDDED IN THE CENTRE OF A GOLD BISHOP'S CROSS.
The cross had been hidden within a secret compartment in an antique mahogany writing box they had purchased at the Dirt Market in Beijing, in a compartment sealed for over a hundred years. And with the cross was an un?nished letter, telling of a brass chest containing church treasures and relics looted by the Boxers, a chest supposedly buried somewhere in the city once known as Peking. The two Australians return to China to search for the chest. But others have learned of their quest and, in the cold mist of Beijing's winter, what had seemed like a simple task back in their leafy riverside Brisbane suburb, became a deadly game as the curse of the Dark Eye of the Jaguar began to take its revenge.
