REVIEW: Hunting Down Dragons by Tricia Owens

Summary:

Death is coming for you, Anne Moody...

The Oddsmakers have been overseeing the use of magick in Las Vegas since the city's inception. For a dragon sorceress like Anne Moody, who tries to stay beneath the radar while running her cursed pawn shop, the Oddsmakers are the boogeymen she never wants to meet. They have the power to strip of her of her magick or worse if they deem her a danger to the city.

Unfortunately, the Oddsmakers want her for a mission and Anne can't refuse. However, she has her own agenda: investigating a sorcerer who possesses the power to not only create life, but to raise the dead. With the gargoyle Vale by her side and with the help of her magickal friends, Anne tracks strange creatures beneath the streets of Las Vegas. But when tragedy strikes close to home, Anne realizes she may have to risk the wrath of the Oddsmakers and call upon her dragon for help. Because in the isolated desert, far from the eyes of ordinary humans, she is about to confront her parents' killer. Nothing is going to stop her from finding vengeance.

Thoughts:

As with the first, the characters were great fun. The story was interesting and I enjoyed the continuity from the first book as well as learning more about the people. However, it was a little on the slow side. I had trouble getting into it at first and it dragged in places. I’d also say that this is a book that’s definitely about the journey rather than the destination. There’s excitement, but the ending left a little something to be desired. I’m interested to see what’s to come.

Bottom Line:

Hunting Down Dragons was a fascinating chapter in the story of Anne and her friends. Don’t miss out!
