    The idea of battling with her, playing with her, maybe celebrating her return to her body with her... reminded Joarr that he'd been a prisoner, too. Been cut off from many of the same physical pleasures Amma had. Perhaps they could rediscover them together. This was the winner of the Romantic Times Book Review Harlequin Nocturne Reader's Choice Award 2012. As a fantasy book, this is very good. Amma is a powerful witch, she was the super-villain in more than one previous entries in this series, the The idea of battling with her, playing with her, maybe celebrating her return to her body with her... reminded Joarr that he'd been a prisoner, too. Been cut off from many of the same physical pleasures Amma had. Perhaps they could rediscover them together. This was the winner of the Romantic Times Book Review Harlequin Nocturne Reader's Choice Award 2012. As a fantasy book, this is very good. Amma is a powerful witch, she was the super-villain in more than one previous entries in this series, the Unbound series. Devoti chooses to make the super-villainess the heroine of this book. But she can't pull it off. Amma is a horrible, selfish person who is almost heartless. Devoti could not convince me to root for her in this book, which made it a terrible romance novel. As a fantasy novel, it succeeds. A powerful witch and a weredragon who hate each other end up in a reluctant, based-on-deceit deal to work together for a short time. There's dwarves, treasure, elves, weredragons, witches, battles, blood-drinking, shapeshifting... All kinds of cool stuff. The plot is well thought-out and very exciting and fast paced. But as a romance novel, I think it fails. When I read romance novels, I want two people who love each other, care for each other, trust and respect each other. I want sweet, caring relationships. I just cannot feel for or root for two people who have such anger towards each other, and Amma is so devious and always planning to betray, hurt or kill Joarr. This is not sexy. It is sad. I didn't like it. How's the sex, Carmen? I can't enjoy sex between devious and heartless protagonists. I just can't. I like sweetness and love, not backstabbing and betrayal. ... Tl;dr - Ironic that while this book was the whole reason I picked up Devoti's Unbound series, it is one of the books I liked least out of the series. (I didn't like Guardian's Keep much, either, the heroine was very annoying.) While I admire Devoti's skill and tendency to make villains in former books heroines in future ones, here Amma was too evil for me to get any enjoyment out of this story. I just didn't like her. Joarr wasn't much better. As a fantasy novel, this is a solid entry with great characters, plot, and world-building. As a romance novel, it fails. THREE REAL STARS, TWO ROMANCE STARS P.S. I did love how weredragon boyfriends are like portable heating devices. You would never be cold, you would just snuggle up to your heat-generating boyfriend and have snuggles. This is a very attractive idea for me. You would never be cold again. Plus, extra snuggles! Bonus! Markus is right, I should travel to Azeroth and find one. :) ;)

    So here's the situation: Amma is an attractive witch. Joarr is a sexy dragon. Amma stole Joarr's chalice. Joarr wants it back. That was what the plot of The Witch Thief could have been if Lori Devoti had wanted to write a nice simple book with some sexy scenes in it. And frankly, that's what romance novels are supposed to be. Yes, romance novels are my guilty pleasure--that's how I know what to look for in them. Anyway, instead of taking the simple route, the author waaaaaay overcomplicated things So here's the situation: Amma is an attractive witch. Joarr is a sexy dragon. Amma stole Joarr's chalice.

And frankly, that's what romance novels are supposed to be. Yes, romance novels are my guilty pleasure--that's how I know what to look for in them. Anyway, instead of taking the simple route, the author waaaaaay overcomplicated things. Let me break this down for you: There are eight different worlds we're dealing with here, all connected by portals (which can apparently only be accessed through seedy bars). These various worlds are populated by humans, dragons, witches, elves, dark elves, dwarves, werewolves, and multiple other creatures that I've forgotten because there were so many of them. Every race has its own distinct characteristics, and we are told far too many of these little tidbits. While the author was busy peppering her work with useless little details, she forgot to explain some other things that I really would've liked to know, such as, how exactly was Amma trapped outside of her body for one hundred years, how did her body stay perfectly preserved in that time, and HOW is she still pregnant after all that??? (Oh, and just so that you don't think I was reading a book about bestiality, it might be prudent of me to mention that dragons can shape-shift between a dragon form and a human form. See? I have to go into far too much detail just for you to understand this review!) For me, romance novels should be like made-for-TV movies. You can kill a couple hours on it, laugh a little at the melodramatic cheesiness, walk away from it feeling suitably entertained (but still vaguely like it was a waste of time), and never think about it again. I should not have to write down the details of a $5 Wal-Mart romance novel in order to keep them straight. Trying to build a fantasy world this complex in 277 pages is far too ambitious to be feasible, especially when it's obvious that you don't really know what you're doing. Also, the sex sucked.

    Amma is a witch but she is something more. She is a half breed of some kind. She doesn't know who or what her father was. She had been hired by a dwarf called The Collector to steal The Dragon Chalice. In order to steal the chalice she must become The Chalice Keeper's lover. Joarr, the chalice keeper, is a good looking alpha dragon. While Joarr sleeps she steals the chalice and sells it to the dwarf for information on her father. She goes to the Elven kingdom where the elves separate her soul fr Amma is a witch but she is something more. She is a half breed of some kind. She doesn't know who or what her father was.

Joarr, the chalice keeper, is a good looking alpha dragon. While Joarr sleeps she steals the chalice and sells it to the dwarf for information on her father. She goes to the Elven kingdom where the elves separate her soul from her body and she is imprisoned for 100 hundred years. Joarr her lover is also imprisoned in his dragon form. This is where our story begins. Joarr, the Chalice Keeper, must find the chalice before all dragons are made extinct. In order to do this he must convince Amma to help him find it. During their search Amma and Joarr become lovers. Amma wants to find and steal the cup for herself. She hasn't told Joarr that prior to being imprisoned that she was pregnant. Joarr knows that Amma's father had to have been a dragon because dragons can only imprint with other dragons and they have imprinted with each other. This book is full of action. From start to finish it is fast paced. I would definitely recommend this story.

    Though I found the tension and romance lacking it was still a great adventure and I did enjoy it. I wouldn't call it a page turner but I think some of the thing Ms. Devoti had in her world were interesting and unique.

    I gave up on this book about a 3rd of the way through it. It wasn't going anywhere or doing anything. I was confused by the character's actions. I gave up on this book about a 3rd of the way through it. It wasn't going anywhere or doing anything. I was confused by the character's actions.

    I had a hard time getting into this one. I didn't care for either of the main characters and didn't really care why they both disappeared for 100 years. In the end this one just wasn't for me.

    I liked this book. It was a bit slow in the beginning and at first I really did not like the witch Amma. She had a pretty high opinion of herself and thought nobody but nobody knew magic like she did. Well she was in for a surprise as Joarr is a dragon shifter and not many can beat their magic. Amma steels the chalice that Joarr was protecting by deceiving him, thinking he would never miss just one little bit of treasure. Sure..uh-huh! Got interesting after that.
