For P.J. Stone, being a “Seer” who has never seen anything is less than fun. And P.J. isn’t known for her patience.

To make matters worse, she must choose a suitable mate to continue the Seer bloodline. Duty always comes before her heart…at least that’s what her parents taught her. When she finds herself wanting someone who is considered off-limits, P.J. is forced to question everything she believes.

As if navigating her love life isn’t complicated enough, P.J. finally receives a vision—of a threat to her world that only she can perceive. But no one will believe a fledgling Seer’s warnings. With nowhere else to turn, she may decide to trust a stranger with her life, her world, and maybe even her heart.

I was going to let my potty mouth fly for this review, but I thought better of it. There are still some curses in there, but nothing compared to how I felt that night when I finished reading Broken Gates. I’m at a loss for words on how to describe the love/hate relationship I now have with the author. I was a beta reader for her 1st book, Hidden Gates, and it was AMAZING!! She is such an awesome story teller and her stories suck you right in and leave you begging for me. Of course, this was my reaction when I received the email that Broken Gates was ready for beta….

Yes, attractive. I couldn’t contain myself. But of course, life had other plans and I didn’t get to start it right away. Meanwhile I have Dara’s other stalkers asking me have I read it yet. UGH. I just wanted to go into hibernation and devour this book. Since the author had FINALLY figured out how to use GIF’s, I’m going to go through my reactions during this read and then get to my review.

I am normally not opposed to books ending with a cliffhanger, but that was downright maniacal. I sat there, gaped mouthed, for about 15 minutes while I tried to put my head on straight. I fucking cried. SERIOUSLY! How can you do this to me?! You just ripped my fucking heart out and stomped on it. I can so image D.T. Dyllin doing exactly that, but crushing it with her stiletto heels. I don’t even know if you wear stilettos lol.

I have decided that PJ’s new motto is “Once a dragon hussy, always a dragon hussy.” I stole that from Dara and it seemed very fitting. You are no longer a lip slut…you’ve been upgraded. Or would that be downgraded? I don’t know…take your pick. And seriously, Bryn, WHAT THE FUCK?! You really pissed me off and you’re on the low end of my really shitty totem pole. He really pissed me off so bad that I wish I could choke the life out of him, bring him back to life and choke him again. I’m not your Anam Cara anymore!! Now Khol on the other hand…that dragon is sex on a stick and I’d take a lick any day. Even with the ending being the way it was, Khol stayed true to his self. I’ve made up my mind that Kohl is now my Anam Cara. Who cares what he did in book one? I don’t, do you? And Shona doesn’t count lol.

I don’t think Dara can write a bad novel. I’ve read 3 of hers so far and she has been bumped up to my top 2 favorite authors. I have a huge girl crush on her! I am impatiently waiting for the day she finishes edits on book 3 and it’s read for beta. I will cry tears of joy and drop everything to read it.
