Petty thief Dermot “Finn” Finnegan came back to Lucy’s Lake, Vermont, to do one thing—return the car he’d stolen from his high school flame, Tessa, the night he’d disappeared ten years ago. The plan was to be in and out with no one the wiser, especially not Tessa, but when a mysterious fire breaks out and he reluctantly saves the day, Finn’s plans are all shot to hell, along with his ability to resist the love he left behind.

Can love survive lies, theft and arson? There’s only one way to tell…

Talon and the Dragons of Crinnelia

By Diana Metz / Genre: Fantasy / Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (17 reviews)

Talon and the Dragons of Crinnelia

“I can always tell when the Magic is present in a human: a glowing about the head, rather like the glow of the embers in your fire. I ate someone with Magic once, and had gas for months.” The dragon chuckled, at least Talon hoped that was a chuckle.

Dragons, Wizards, and magical rings. This was not at all what Talon had in mind when he accepted an errand from a strange old man. Now an evil Wizard is after him, he’s living in a cave, and a Dragon Queen has mysterious plans for his future. Can Talon accept his fate and become a powerful Wizard? Would Dragons ever again think of humans as anything more than an easy meal?

Talon is a fantasy adventure story for readers of all ages. It was written for a younger audience, but it is enjoyable for adults as well. This is a fun romp through a world of magic and dragons who aren’t flying flamethrowers but intelligent and humorous creatures.
