supernatural Mere mortals can never find out about Magika and if they stumble upon it by mistake, they are never seen or heard from again Magika can never be exposed for what it is In Magika, we meet the Dawsons They are a boisterous family full of merriment They live life on their terms During their yearly family gathering we learn that the Dawsons are not liked by the king of Magika and they try to steer clear of him at all times There was a falling out many years ago when one of the Dawsons killed the King s brother.During the family gathering, well into the night Zancho, an evil demon set fire to the Dawson camp killing every member of the family except for Derrick and his siblings Francesco and Teresa They were only children at the time and were forced to make it out into the world alone only having each other to rely on They find an abandoned house and make it into a home Derrick fights to keep his family together often stealing food so they won t go hungry Derrick being the oldest, has the weight of the world on his shoulders Being poor does not offer them any luxuries and they fight every day of their lives to survive Derrick does not believe in love To him, love is pain, especially after witnessing his entire family being killed He never wants to go through that pain ever again All that is about to change though when they meet the Princesses, twins Rosa and Rose Both Derrick and his younger brother Francesca feel a connection to the twins Is love even possible between the poorest of the poor and the Princesses I really enjoyed this story when I first started reading it There is a lot of action going on in the first quarter of the book We witness the destruction of the Dawsons and I could not help but feel sorry for these poor children out on their own Zancho is a nasty evil demon that will stop at nothing to make those he wishes suffer and die Derrick was definitely a favorite of mine through the first half of the book He really loved his siblings and in a way became a father figure to them Derrick would do anything for his family to ensure their safety Then we have Rose and Rosa who both grew up in a life of privilege They never wanted for anything and lived in a castle with their grandparents, the king and queen Rose and Rosa also lost their mother to the same evil demon much like Derrick and his family.The romance is a slow buildup and you really can t help yourself from rooting for a happily ever after and yet wondering how there will ever be a happily ever after when the king forbids the twins from any contact with the Dawson brothers The romance is like a modern version of Romeo and Juliet The romance was very sweet at times and also very raunchy other times Which I kind of liked.Lydia and Santina Casablanca are very detailed in their story telling which helped immerse me into the story Although I enjoyed the story, there were a couple of parts that I was iffy about There is a lot of underage sex Nothing graphic and everything was off scene, but it definitely touches on the taboo There is also a reference to a gay comment that was a bit off putting, but all in all it did not sway me away from the main storyline Please be aware that the ending kind of ends on a cliffhanger, so I am hoping their is going to be a sequel to the story All in all, I did enjoy The Dawsons and would love to find out what happens next flag 5 likesLike see review Jul 04, 2017 Rosetta Fabiano is currently reading it I must say so far this book is exciting, interesting and keeps you wondering what s going to happen next I

read I felt bad for Derrick as he had to take on the role of the main caregiver for his sister and brother at only four years old, but he somehow managed to do it I disagreed with the way he changed because he became very abusive towards his siblings, and then got mad at his siblings when they began to act the same way that he had been acting for years I understand where the story was trying to go, but he and his siblings actually succeeded at making me angry at This novel was interesting to read I felt bad for Derrick as he had to take on the role of the main caregiver for his sister and brother at only four years old, but he somehow managed to do it I disagreed with the way he changed because he became very abusive towards his siblings, and then got mad at his siblings when they began to act the same way that he had been acting for years I understand where the story was trying to go, but he and his siblings actually succeeded at making me angry at certain times throughout the book.My favorite character was Francesco He had been bullied by his brother and sister all of his life, and he is falling for Rosa He does not feel that he is worthy of her love though I loved seeing him finally have the relationship that he deserved.Teresa was a unique character I couldn t decide what I thought about her Sometimes I thought that she was another victim of Derrick, but then with the way she treated Francesco, she definitely had a mind of her own I wish that I had the chance to see things from her perspective, but she is left behind as the time continues to move forward.The plot moved smoothly even with the time skips and it was interesting to see how the characters changed as the years went on The twin princesses also have interesting stories of their own, but they have a lot of spoilers so I won t say too much about that.The worldbuilding was definitely fleshed out at the beginning, but as the time went on I saw the description start to dwindle This wasn t necessarily a bad thing because there was simply story to cover, but I would have liked a bit focus on the description.When the excuse is given for why Derrick and Francesco are as sex craving as they are, I found it to be a bit weak I thought that they could have had a better reason for why they acted the way they did I won t spoil anything again, but it was just not what I was expecting It also did not explain the reason why Derrick was addicted to alcohol and drugs.The princesses definitely have personalities of their own I saw Rosa s start to disappear a bit when she got together with Francesco, but Rose s never disappeared Their brother also had some unique quirks that I grew to love as the story continued.I did not find any editing errors in my copy of the novel that I read.I would recommend this book to lovers of fantasy dark fantasy romance novels Even though the characters are teens for a good portion of the novel, I would suggest that you treat this as an adult or a new adult story if you aren t a fan or adult themes in stories.I received an advance copy of this book and this is my voluntary review flag 2 likesLike see review Apr 03, 2018 Ashley Dawn rated it it
