Rivals (Book 2 of The Warden series)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The Warden is an inventive urban fantasy series that wields a growing list of dynamic characters and a high standard for plot. The humor, romance, and action is fresh and never cut and pasted from previous books. In a genre that is plagued by vampires, this author endeavors to keep hers in the basement where they belong.
Cori and Ethan’s competition is in full swing when Danato’s irritation for their bickering lands them in the wizard’s den. After a few days and a few long overdue apologies, they start to find a balance between friends and rivals.
Unfortunately, when a job offer outside of the prison lands in Ethan’s lap, Cori is now the one being faced with abandonment by her friend.
With Ethan out of the competition, the only thing standing in her way of the wardenship is a written exam, a bureaucratic nitwit, a less than docile fire-breathing dragon, and a minor prison takeover.
“Cori!” Danato yelled before his body constricted. Waves of electricity crawled around his body like tentacles. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw the face of his attacker.
The elementals were out.
Yet another escape attempt by the elementals leaves Danato and his guards at “gunpoint” in the gym. The only two people left to save the day are Cori and Belus.
However, Cori is coughing up blood, and Belus’s straightforward plan of attack leaves her less than confident in their chances of victory. Rather than expedite her path toward death; Cori abandons him for her own plan.
As soon as she figures out what her plan is, she’ll be well on her way to saving the day.

run out and fight him, but given his powers, she knew it would be useless. She remembered what the first wizard had said about Dolf being dumb, and she hoped it was true. Ethan felt the invisible grip tighten around his neck, and he wondered if Dolf would bore of him eventually and release him, or just kill him for sport. Without a voice, he could not even plead for mercy or surrender. There was a low growl behind him, similar to a bear. It caught Dolf’s attention as well. Unfortunately, his
yanked her hand back. She must have seen the shock in his face, because she looked away. He wasn’t sure what was more offensive to him: that she pulled away from him, or that she looked away. He couldn’t understand her. One minute they were friends, skirting the options of being more, and the next they were complete strangers to each other. This was why he couldn’t seek her out. This was why no matter what he felt for her he wouldn’t push a relationship with her until she asked for it. He

I’m not offering you freedom, but if I can try to make you more comfortable. Is there anything that would make your sentence more tolerable?” The old woman thought for a moment. “A defroster on my window would be nice. It’s just part of being me, but it would be nice to have a view.” “A defroster, that’s it? Any specialty items, food, clothes?” “Hot
demon on my shoulder to prove it, but it hurt like hell leaving the first time. I didn’t want to do it again.” “What about now? What happens when you leave this time?” “I’m still afraid, but I couldn’t miss this. I wanted to see you kick dragon ass.” “Maybe you wouldn’t have to go again. Maybe you could just stay. You can be my Belus.” Ethan smiled. He reached for her hand, but stopped himself. “As much as I would like that, I’m kind of stuck. I’ve unfortunately paid the price for my loyalty.
advise to follow his lead if you want to survive. Understand?” She nodded. “Good. Now take his fucking hand so you don’t end up three miles apart!” he growled before stomping away. She threw her hand out to Ethan. She forced herself to push through the situation, rather than do what she wanted to, which was run home and cry. Ethan took her outstretched hand and gave her a little stroke with his thumb. She didn’t look at him, but she knew he was offering an empathetic expression. He was not
