The mighty Fae are tricksters. They love their games, their intrigues, and their own kind. Until they don’t…
What in the realm have I gotten myself into this time?
I was merely curious. I thought it would be a splendid idea to sneak into the Shifter Kingdom. I had a plan.
Then it all went to Fairy and back.
The Misfits did not help matters.
The gremlins have given us four days to find the second artifact, an artifact that will help save our realm.
It is simply not possible.
My name is Trixie Towers. I am the elven princess who is soul mated to the shifter king. My life is so dreadfully complicated now.
Can you be addicted to a series? If you can, then I am 100% addicted to Scarlett Dawn‘s Trixie Towers series! Like the first book, I devoured Scales and Skeletons in one sitting, forgoing sleep to do so. And I regret nothing 😁 Scales and Skeletons picks up minutes after the end of Marvels and Misfits. Trixie and King Traevon are on their way back to the Elven kingdom after finding the first of five artifacts to stop the waking giants. The other rulers are on their way back to their own kingdoms, their magic restored and fae sparks intact, which leads to its own set of problems for Trixie and her ill-fated soulmate King Athon.
I do not have words for how much I love Trixie and her father King Traevon. Trixie is extremely intelligent despite her navieté and immaturity. Her curious nature however will get her in serious trouble at every turn of the page. King Traevon is a doting father, regardless of what Trixie may believe. His love for her is evident in every interaction, as is his exasperation and fear for her safety. Scarlett Dawn captures the essence of a loving father-daughter relationship in these two characters, throwing in her own wit and dry humor that will have the reader laughing out loud.
Then there is King Athon. I really didn’t know what to make of him in Marvels and Misfits. He was a complete ass (and that’s putting it mild), yet there is something that intrigues Trixie and of course myself as the reader. He is your typical Alpha male, a tiger shifter and ruler of the shifter kingdom. Bloodlust and the need to mark his territory guide a lot of his actions. When he sends a letter (not a kind one either) warning Trixie that he has a challenger and she is not to heal him through their bond, she is intrigued and of course sneaks into the shifter kingdom.
I really enjoyed the growth in Athon and Trixie’s relationship here. There is an undeniable chemistry between them, even if they hate each other. Their soulmate bond is one I can’t wait to explore more in the coming books. Between that and finding the next artifact the plot moves at a fast-pace. Hence the reason I read it in one sitting! I had to know what would happen next.
Overall, if you hadn’t guessed already, I loved Scales and Skeletons! The entire world that Dawn has built in this series is unique, and one I’m enjoying exploring more of in each installment. If you are a fan of paranormal romance and fantasy, I highly recommend you put this on your TBR list!
