Ironclad Devotion Reviews
Excellent fantasy novel with a neat main character / heroine with lots of agency. Plus bikers with a heart. What's not to like?
No cookie cutter is being used by Jami Gold and her muse. What do I mean? While her four "mythos legacy" books are, as the word 'mythos' implies, about creatures from myths and legends, each has a different type of heroine and hero, and each features a different type of myth or legend. This is not a series in which the same old tropes and themes get recycled if a first book is successful. (By the way, this also means that each book is a standalone gem.)If you have just stumbled across Jami Gold's books, I should tell you how I found her books: A writer whose work I enjoyed mentioned in her blog that she'd received creative writing advice from Jami Gold. Ms. Gold has the writing mojo to go with her creativity.The book is erotic without being lewd. (Hope that doesn't turn off potential readers at either of the ends of the human sexuality spectrum.)Sorry, Ms. Gold, but I must pan - pun intended - one thing: I've liked your book covers. Readers are creatures of the mind; we play out the stories we read in our heads, filling in the details we need. In my (male) mind, Kira is way more vivacious and beautiful than the cover woman. Just saying.I always add a disclaimer. For Ironclad: I don't know the author, although I have sent her writing blog a few emails; I wasn't asked to review the book and I didn't receive a free copy in exchange for a review. I reviewed it because I highly recommend it.
Ironclad Devotion is another winner from Jami Gold! I devoured this book, just like I did with Treasured Claim and Pure Sacrifice earlier this year. The short version - Keeping promises is really really important. Not just promises to kids (althouh those are critical), but keep all your promises.The characters in this story were well drawn and believable, as well as being hugely likable (or hate-able) due to their actions during the story. The settings were well drawn and easy to picture...Other highlights... yummy showers, much better magical zoo trip than in the Mary Poppins book,generally great interactions between Fire Fairy and the animal kingdom, magic that all felt organic and real, consequences for decisions we make. I wish that the iron Dragon that Zac had made for Emily had come into play again in the climax (or somewhere).Oh, and having your face melted off is still too good for some people.This book wasn't quite as prone to make me go wake up hubby, but the sexy scenes were well written and quite hot. (blushes).Highly Recommended!
Failed out, but for someone else it might be a good bad romance novel. Like if early Mercedes Lackey wrote a hockey players aquire a baby book.
Loved this very much! Compared to the previous two novels Jami has written so far (Treasured Claim and Pure Sacrifice), I actually liked the heroine and hero more mildly, but I still liked them because they were cool people. :) I loved the little girl (Emily) too; she was adorable, and I really enjoyed reading her interactions with her dad and foster mom, which were very sweet and cute. But this is also the only novel in Jami's Mythos Legacy series so far where I liked the human protagonist fairly quickly, in this case, Zachary Chase. I usually take much longer to warm up to the human partner of a paranormal romance, if I come to warm up to them at all! (Yes, I know I'm species-ist, lol!) Anyway, Zac was great and he was very easy to sympathize with.As well, out of the three novels, Pure Sacrifice, Treasured Claim, and Ironclad Devotion, I liked the fantasy worldbuilding of Ironclad Devotion best. Maybe because the background world details in Ironclad were more elaborate, or the most intriguing. I'm someone who cares a lot about worldbuilding, so, haha. One more thing to say, is that I really appreciated the pacing or the "pulling strength" of the story. It was gripping enough for me to want to keep reading, yet not excessively gripping that I lose sleep. Which is very good, because losing sleep is very bad for my health. So I would say it struck the ideal balance: absorbing enough to be enjoyable and exciting, but not too much so that it disrupts my sleep and makes me regret indulging myself after. All in all, a fantastic book with an added element of intrigue: parent-child relationships and a very cute kid to read about. :D
