Josephine (Jo or Phi to her friends,
never Josie) seems to be stuck in a rut. The only man that
she has ever had a crush on was her best friend Aer, who
disappeared five years ago without a word. So as Jo’s best
friend keeps trying to set her up, she never seems to find
the right man. Then, just as she has decided to give up
hope on Aer, he shows up and asks her for help, as she is
the only one that he is willing to share his secret with and
who will help him.
Phi could never say no to Aer before,
now that she knows he is a dragon shifter there is no way
she is backing down. She has always loved dragons and is
amazed to find they exist and that she seems connected to
then. Though she is still miffed at Aer for running five
years ago, she is willing to let him try and explain, and to
So now in the span of 48 hours she has
learned about another race of beings, helped save a dragon
shifter (Aer’s brother), found a dragon egg and has been
attacked. Add to this the sexual tension that is building
between Aer and Phi and you have an explosive fast paced
story in The Quickening.
I have just found a new must read
author and series in Antonia Tiranth’s - Rikashi Series.
I loved Phi’s character not only was she a spunky woman but
she was willing to fight for what she wanted, and dealt
wonderfully with changes as they happened. I was pulled in
from the beginning and was disappointed that it ended;
though I have since discovered it is a series (yeah!),
heading right over to get the next installment (The
Gathering). I Joyfully Recommend The Quickening,
as this is the highest rating I can give it.
