As the last dragon shifter, I live alone, hiding in one of Earth’s sacred deserts. My human handlers tell me that I have no parents, no name, and no purpose other than to train for battle and one day become a vessel for the reincarnation of Chimera, the greatest dragon shifter of all. Sadly, Chimera’s rebirth will mean my own death. But my handlers say this sacrifice is a noble fate that will rebuild the dragon shifter world.

I shall die on my seventeenth birthday. That’s five days from now.

Then I hear music thumping across the desert. I take my mortal form, follow the sound, and find humans dancing in what they call a rave. There is a stage and a rock band. One thing quickly becomes clear: Unlike the audience, the musicians are dragon shifters, just like me. And one of them, the guitar player Rhodes, makes my knees turn watery. The lead singer, Kaps, has something strangely familiar about her.

It all adds up to one conclusion: My handlers lied to me. I’m not the last of my kind. Memories reappear. I had parents once. Portia and Tempest. I even had a name. Zinnia. Perhaps I have a reason to live as well. I step past the dancing humans to confront the players.

I will find out the full truth, no matter what.

You could say I’m obsessed with Christina Bauer’s writing. She has a vivid imagination and it really comes through in her world building and characters.

Zinnia is the 3rd book in the Angelbound series. I really enjoyed this one. I loved getting to know Zinnia. She is a wonderfully developed character, that I was instantly connected to. She feels real and this was a very character driven novel.

The world-building is fantastic. I absolutely loved escaping into Zinnia’s world. This is the third book, and while you can read this as a standalone, I think reading the other books is important to gain more respect and love for the world and overall plot of the series.

I recommend checking this one out! Definitely an awesome read.



Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

    1. Totally understandable. I’ve read the other two books, just haven’t had an opportunity to review. Lol. She’s a great YA Fantasy/Sci-fi author.
