The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . ZINNIA (Angelbound Offspring, #3) . . . Just me thinking and writing. I so, hope that you have read the first two books of this series. It was not a requirement, but let me say that it would most certainly allow for you to have a deeper connection to sweet Zinnia and the other characters that you meet. I loved Angelbound Origins and even with more being added to their story it makes the world that Christina Bauer built come alive with life having real exchanges and constant ebbs and flows. Now, with the the Angelbound Offspring spin-off series, we get a deeper look at the world, the lives, the characters, the children. I for one have very much enjoyed each and every step of the way. With the tap of the screen and the changing of the page, I fell more in love with sweet, soft, little Zinnia. I implore you too to come and see what the big deal is all about.

I so do not like giving things away especially when the journey for yourself will be more enjoyable exploring it all on your own. Dragons will always be my most favorite of the paranormal/fantasy worlds species. And meeting Zinnia was just icing on a cake that I did not even realize I was wanting to take a huge bite out of. Watching Zinnia believe she would die in a matter of days to discovering that she was not alone in the world. She was not the only living dragon. She was not alone. She was so much more than her handlers told her. As she discovery the truth the world she knows and doesn't know open up a new set of possibilities. 

As the last dragon shifter, I live alone, hiding in one of Earth’s sacred deserts. My human handlers tell me that I have no parents, no name, and no purpose other than to train for battle and one day become a vessel for the reincarnation of Chimera, the greatest dragon shifter of all. Sadly, Chimera’s rebirth will mean my own death. But my handlers say this sacrifice is a noble fate that will rebuild the dragon shifter world.

I shall die on my seventeenth birthday. That’s five days from now.

Then I hear music thumping across the desert. I take my mortal form, follow the sound, and find humans dancing in what they call a rave. There is a stage and a rock band. One thing quickly becomes clear: Unlike the audience, the musicians are dragon shifters, just like me. And one of them, the guitar player Rhodes, makes my knees turn watery. The lead singer, Kaps, has something strangely familiar about her.

It all adds up to one conclusion: My handlers lied to me. I’m not the last of my kind. Memories reappear. I had parents once. Portia and Tempest. I even had a name. Zinnia. Perhaps I have a reason to live as well. I step past the dancing humans to confront the players.

I will find out the full truth, no matter what.
