Book Review - Moorigad, By Debra Kristi

Book Title: Moorigad
Author: Debra Kristi
Publishing Date: May 16, 2016
Page/Word Count: 492 pages

When Kyra, the Moorigad dragon-shifter, unwittingly finds herself at Mystic’s Carnival, a supernatural world between realms, she believes her runaway days are finished. Amidst the carnies and never-ending magic, she finds a home of the heart – friends and belonging among a gathering of paranormal beings. However, living an uncomplicated life was never one of Kyra’s strengths.

She’s falling for her all-too-secretive best friend, Sebastian. And as she delves deeper into his mysteries, her goodwill sabotages their future and her very existence.

What did Kyra do?

Can Kyra and Sebastian find their happily-ever-after?  

Pros: Great characters, great story

Cons: Some areas were slow for me

Overall rating: Great story, recommended

 This was a great read and I am glad that I was given the chance to read the entire series in one go.  I always hate when I read the first book of a series and fall in love with things and can't just move right into the next books in the series.  I appreciate when authors combine them down for is so that we can read the whole series at one time.  This means that I can binge read, and then be sad when I am done and don't have any more to read.

Kyra is a great lead character.  She is flawed but in the good way, where you can relate to her in some ways.  Now I can't relate to her dragon side, but I do wish I could.  She is not perfect, and that makes her more real for me.  And that means she is someone that can grow and change, which she does through out the series.  She is great!

One could fall head over heals for Sebastian.  He is a great character as well.  He gives that part of Kyra that she is lacking as you read the story.  He grows as well, which so helps him take on that lead male role.

I would recommend this book and really I think that it's going to be something that a teenager would like to read as well as an adult.  There is nothing too massively bad in it and I think that it would be something that would draw any reader in.


Tension tightened Sebastian’s back and shoulders. It wasn’t the request that got to him. It was the sound of her voice, the anxious need. “Better yet, why don’t you ditch work? Come with me now. I can take you somewhere that might just be exactly what you need—” Without warning, Sebastian’s jaw locked up, his every muscle froze, and he couldn’t move. What the f---in’ hell is going on? his inner voice yelled, and his eyes darted left and right.

“Sebastian?” Kyra inquired. “You were saying?”

He couldn’t respond. Couldn’t will his mouth to work or voice to answer. But his gaze narrowed in on the culprit, standing not-so-inconspicuously by the creamer station. Tall, gray suit with hat pulled down to shield his facial features, and a cheesy name tag tacked to his chest, probably his father’s lame idea. All part of the everyone-get-to-know-Sebastian movement. Except, all the names were fake. So what was the point? The Reaper across the room was no more named Mr. Johnson than his father was Mr. Smith.

Damn Reapers. Now Sebastian had a tail because his father didn’t trust him on his own. His gaze shifted to Kyra.

“Sebastian?” Kyra’s eyes bored into him, large and wide.
