Arkadia (Halfway House #1) by Dzintra Sullivan

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 5 Stars

Well, well, well, what a gorgeous book.  I absolutely recommend this one ….

This is the first book in the Halfway House series by Dzintra Sullivan.
We start out meeting Arkadia, a pretty young girl who really seems to have no idea about how her witchcraft is supposed to work. She messes up spells and is in dire need of some maternal direction.  In steps Eloise, a gorgeous den mother of the halfway house where Arkadia finds herself. Eloise is lovely and being a telephath she is able to see into Arkadia’s mind and read what she is thinking and feeling.  Arkadia desperately needs to improve her magic skills and pass her PSEs otherwise she will be banished.
Of course, no good paranormal romance would be complete without the hero, Bohdan, who is a dragon.  They both realise fairly quickly that they are a perfect match and Bodham helps her to look forward to a future.
I love, love, love Bohdan’s character, he is hot, sexy and handsome, oh and did I mention hot (literally). I would love a little Bohdan in my life.  Arkadia’s character grew thorough out the story, and she was absolutely the star of this book.
Excellent debut novel and I honestly cannot wait to read the next in the series.  I give this book five bright shiny stars. I can thoroughly recommend the read.

I am Arkadia Castner. I am beautiful. I am popular. I am also the most messed-up witch you will ever meet. I can’t make water boil, or make the wind blow; I can’t even light a match without the aid of a flint. My 18th birthday is in six months, and if I don’t pass the Paranormal Safety Exams (PSEs) by then, I will be banished to the Isle of Shadows for eternity, never to be seen again – it will be as though I never existed.

I found myself at the halfway house under the supervision and guidance of Den Mother and telepathic empath, Eloise Mayflower. The halfway house is the last chance for troubled paranormal teens like me to pass our PSEs and avoid banishment. Eloise knows everything I think and feel, and is supposed to be helping me, but I still can’t do basic spells a six-year-old can do. I hate it here, but I have no choice. This is my last chance.

I had all but given up hope, when in walks Bohdan Drak. Tall, dark, and so damn sexy it hurts to look at him – even his muscles had muscles. He is a dragon shifter and wears the mark of having passed his PSEs. When our souls meet, we realize we have found our soul mates and perfect matches. My dying hope has found life again, and I finally have a reason to look forward to a future.

I thought everything would be fine, but darkness and despair creep into my future. I have been framed for a murder, and everyone believes I am guilty. The paranormal council now watches my every move. Can I trust Bohdan and true love? I fear my destiny is to be banished forever …
