This review is from: Bloodstone - The Guardian's Curse (Beyond the Veil) (Kindle Edition)
I was never drawn to the fantasy genre, but this book changed that for me. Though the characters are wizards and dragons, they are well-developed and easy to relate to. Those characters hooked me, and the plot held my attention throughout. This story has a little romance, adventure, suspense and mystery. Great entertainment whether you are a fantasy fan or you just love a well told story.
