Born At Dawn ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Christina Davis
I loved this story! I want more from this world and about the Da’Valia. The tensions are high in this slow burn romance fantasy. Neva’s family dynamic is so loving and reminds me of my own family (except for the whole profeasiinal thief thing.....). This book is full of adventure and magic.
“I’ll keep you alive for a meeting,” he agreed. “You will owe me according to my terms. Whenever, wherever.”
“Agreed.” Neva started to rise, but he stopped her. Pulling her toward him by her belt, he claimed her mouth with a gentle finesse. It was a moment before he released her, but when he did, she gulped down air. He needed no magic to cast a spell over her.
“I will hold you to your promise,” he said, still pulling her in with his enthralling gaze.
“I’m counting on it.” Her heart was pounding in her chest. She didn’t even realize she managed to have the last word”
If that doesnt suck you in than nothing will.
When a heist goes terribly wrong and the binding spell holding 17-year-old Neva’s powers at bay is shattered, the half-human thief knows she’s in trouble.
Neva has always hidden her Da’Valian heritage while working risky jobs to make a name for herself and serving at her family’s tavern, but she won’t be able to hide much longer. She can either risk the safety of those she cares about or seek out her mother’s people to gain control over her emerging powers.
The Da’Valia are beautiful, brutal creatures created by the god of war, and the austere Da’Valian soldier Astiand reluctantly agrees to take Neva to his clan under his protection. She makes unexpected friends, including the handsome fighter Emiliand, and a new enemy in the clan’s ruthless leader.
Spying on her guardian, the sly heroine quickly discovers just how deep she has stumbled into a dangerous, developing clan feud.
Will she be able to embrace who she is in time to keep her loved ones safe?
