Review: Building Magic by Lilly Cain

Building Magic
by: Lilly Cain
$4.00 ebook
Red Sage Publishing
Romantic Fantasy
Released: October 2010

Tina is an architectural student spending her summer as a welder.  While sitting on the fifth floor of the building, she spies a gorgeous man in the office across the street stripping, and...glowing?  Playing the Peeping Tom, she uses her binoculars to get a closer look, forgetting there's nothing to stop her fall when she leans too far out.

When Devin hears a woman's screams, he doesn't think, just uses his magic to call her to him, but it comes at a price.  The two are sucked through the portal he'd opened, and transported back to his homeworld of Sa'Harin.  Knowing neither of them can go back to Earth, he agonizes, for it was prophecised he would find something on Earth to end the bitter wars raging on his homeworld.

Tina thought the fall and portal were weird enough, but when she learns her mystery man is also a dragon, she's not sure what to think.  On top of that, Devin somehow knows she's a virgin, and tells her other dragons will be drawn to her because of it.  As the passion between the two ignites, Devin begins to think that with Tina by his side, the two might be able to bring the war to an end.

This was a nice, quick story about what happens when a woman who's never fit in suddenly finds herself in a whole other world, one populated by dragons.  She takes it pretty well, surprisingly.  Because she's fully human, she takes some grief for it, because Devin is the ruler of the dragons, and they don't want him to dilute the bloodline by mating with a human.  She's attracted to him, and is shocked to find he accepts her as she is.  Wanting to help this strange new world, she looks around for ways to help.  Anyone who loves dragons will enjoy this story.
