      This book came to me at exactly the right moment This is a fast paced, imaginative world full of so many great characters There are times in your life when you just need something to sweep you off your feet and this did that for me I truly got pulled into Dakota s world and have felt a little book drunk ever since This book didn t take the turns that I thought it would And I would also say it s not the same throw up of some paranormal darkness that we re all used to This one is uniquely differen [...]

      I received a free eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Dakota, a teenage girl working undercover for her dracon family, has a special power she can see people s souls All dracons inherit aspects , which are pretty much considered superpowers, and that s one of Dakota s.One day a human girl she knows from school is kidnapped, and Dakota tries her best to find her But she s not on her own A very powerful and well known dracon is helping her, and he also has other plans in mind when [...]

      So This was a weird book for me to rate in terms of stars, because although I enjoyed this book rather a lot, and it had me reading till early morning, I had quite a few issues with it.So as you can see through the synopsis, we have a 16 year old girl called Dakota who is a dracon, a half dragon half human Basically the story follows her adventures of fulfilling missions and what not, hiding who she is trying to get it done The world is controlled by Dracon s and has been since the beginning We [...]

      This book is unique and I could not put it down It s probably the best fantasy novel I ve read in a while In fact I will to be bold enough to say the best I ve read this year The ideas were original and the story was addictive I don t want to give too much away but this book has a bit of everything Dragons, Romance, Action, Mystery and Magic.The book is nice and long so you can really get your teeth into it The characters are all unique and loveable I would recommend it to any true fantasy fan5 [...]

      4 full stars I really did not know what to expect from this book when I first started reading it The blurb sounded interesting and I saw that many other readers gave this one a high rating So, I thought I d give it a shot But can I be honest here, the cover isn t all that great I would have liked to see something that played along the lines of the fantasy genre.Anyway, the story is an urban fantasy with a twist which I liked We meet a sixteen year old girl named Dakota who comes from a powerful [...]

      Henchgirl is a YA urban fantasy that shows promise Unfortunately, the love interest is a grade A jerk and my feelings towards the book devolved to mainly anger.In the world of Henchgirl, those who are descended from dragons rule the world Dakota Kekoa is 1 8th dragon, which gives her special abilities, in her case to manipulate people s emotions With three sisters and a mentally absent mother, Dakota supports her family by working for her grandfather s mafia like organization, which includes inf [...]

      Henchgirl offers a delightful surprise It s a mix of standard YA tropes re packaged into a fun, readable, engaging volume that isn t afraid to allow its characters to struggle, grow, and change Rita Stradling re engineers the familiar Hot Boy Love Triangle into something new and worthy, building on familiar magic systems and worlds to create a mystery romance fantasy book whose DNA includes a little Twilight but in a good way , a little Kathleen Woodiwiss again in a good way , a little Janet Eva [...]

      I must admit, the last thing I expected when I started reading Henchgirl was to like it It took me a while to get into it, I struggled, but was worth it.Let s begin with the story Dakota Kekoa is a sixteen years old dracon child of a dragon and a human woman who works for her grandfather Her life is anything but perfect, with a conflict with money and her alcoholic mother who spends all the cash Dakota makes or her grandfather provides her family As a result, Dakota takes the responsibility of w [...]

      This book was awesome The world, the mythology, and the characters were seamless and went well together I really enjoyed reading this book and was quite upset that I had to wait another year or so for a second one I had one problem WYVERN He may be pretty awesome later on in the book and I felt like he was a redeemable character in the end but dang it if I wasn t annoyed with his possessiveness LIKE DAMN who downloads a goddamn program to decode their significant other marriage prospect s passwo [...]

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review I can honestly say that when I received this book I was expecting it to become another meh type of book that I would have to drag myself to finish I was definitely in for a huge surprise when I first began reading this book I feel in love with the character of Dakota since she was definitely very spunky and outgoing She is the type of girl that I would want to know because she always has fun things happen around her and she always h [...]

      Henchgirl was worth reading I gave it four out of five stars The author did a fabulous job of twisting the plot She kept me believing that I knew where it was going, and then gave me a fork in the road where I was uncertain I enjoyed being surprised by where the plot went I did not see the end coming I loved the fantasy components of Ms Stradling s work They included the culture of dracons part dragon, part human , as well as other infected creatures like werewolves, vampires and witches, and wh [...]

      This book was such a pleasure to read At first it was a tad hard to get into because I hadn t had read many books that deal in a similar world as this one so there was some confusion and figuring out things on my part, as well as the names that were very unique At least for myself, they might be the most normal names for someone else.Once I really got into the world and the story, it was so hard to put the book back down With characters that have so many layers to them and political issues that [...]

      This was a good book but it had its faults I know it was influenced by Hawaii but I found a lot of the names sounded so similar that I kept getting them confused The way the Dragons treated women with 1 8th dragon blood was pretty shabby, I felt like they were only good for having babies While I quiet liked Wyveryn Dakota romance it got a bit to mushy at times and toward the end I found Wyvern way to bossy Dakota needs to stand up for herself The action side of the story was good I would like t [...]

      I didn t expect to enjoy this as much as I ended up enjoying it I had a few niggles but overall i really liked it I m going to break this review down into likes and dislikes, so let s get the negative out of the way first, bear in mind, these were only minor annoyances Dislikes Love Triangle Need I say I hate them, and unfortunately this has a one at the start I m gad that it wasn t played out through the whole book, but even so Wyveryn and his possessiveness My god, he was outrageous, and even [...]

      The last thing that I expected to say about this book is good The synopsis gives the feel of been there, read that and I did not expect much.However, when I started reading I was slowly getting invested in Dakota s life The writer instantly introduces her vulnerability She is a sixteen year old in huge debt and with an overbearing mom That what intrigued me to this character and kept me reading.The StoryThe story revolves around Dakota s undercover mission to uncover the murderer of her father S [...]

      I received this book through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.After the first few pages I was worried I wasn t going to like it I couldn t put it down I fell in love with Wyvern what a jerk he can be and with Dakota and her crazy family I really grew to dislike her mother, but the author was able to give her some saving grace in the end.This is not my normal genre for books, but I was pleasantly surprised I really enjoyed the author s writing style I could picture Dakota s world and [...]

      ARC from netgalleyI absolutely loved this book it was well written and excellently paced It was masterfully constructed, kudos to the author I loved Dakota her character was not perfect and had flaws, her family was all drama llama especially the mother too but she loved them anyways and that made me love her And Wyvern even if he did some questionable things too if I say any I might give away spoilers But for Pete s sake if you actually want to read a very good book read this one or I might hun [...]

      I haven t read very many dragon stories and I liked the premise of this one Dragons came from volcanoes and were never meant to be part of our world, but by mating with human women there became half dragons and part dragons and people with special powers The main character is a rough and tough girl with amazing powers who is independent and very stubborn Along comes a half dragon who I think was amazing and turned her world upside down The ending was kind of sad, but I believe the rest of the se [...]

      I ve always been a huge fan of fantasy novels, which has led to me reading and owning of this genre than any other one, and I have to say that this book is a great addition to my collection Honestly, I wasn t too sure what I would think of this novel because the title didn t necessarily capture the beauty of the text Lesson number one, never judge a book by a title because it could very well surprise you This was the case with this novel, and in some ways, I am grateful that I was able to come [...]

    27. Zori Amber on said:

      Henchgirl is a fun and engaging adventure fantasy that meshes together some of what we thought we knew about dragons with a modern setting, and all the angst and joy of following your gut and doing what is right and best for you.At first, when I first started reading the book, within the first few chapters it became obvious that this book was somewhat inspired by Pride and Prejudice However, despite this sense of plot deja vu, there was enough character and world building within the story especi [...]

      The way this story started out originally had me expecting not to like it I haven t read much fantasy well not in a very long time and the first scene with vampires and other creatures nearly had me turning the story off mostly due to personal taste I persisted, but listened mostly while multi tasking for several chapters The main character perhaps in part due to her voice wasn t entirely likable, but she began to grow on me And then, at some point, something clicked, and I was drawn in and I wa [...]

      I am about a quarter of the way through Henchgirl and I m torn on whether or not I should finish it This is a self published book, which isn t necessarily a bad thing the problem is when you can tell it s self published without even having to glance at the copyright page This novel is in serious need of a good copyediting The grammar and overall sentence structure is just bad If the author wants her novel to be taken seriously, I would suggest she invests in the services of a professional to fix [...]

      I had been looking forward to this I thought the MC, Dakota, would be a smart, capable and highly trained teen girl but instead she s by turns totally incompetent at her work or quietly taking the blame for random cock ups that aren t her fault Her family and its dynamics are also really confusing Worse, the writing is so so, with many structural problems than can be accounted for by the fact that I got an ARC that still hadn t gone through final copy editing Reading this was really quite a slo [...]
