What if your dreams were real? In Copper Girl, sexy dreams becomes much more for Sara Corbeau in a dystopian world where the government has outlawed magic and uses technology to track and control its citizens. [Tweet this!]
Sarah Corbeau comes from a family of copper elementals, her brother has been captured by the government and her father “disappeared.” So she’s keeping her head down, avoiding attention and magic… until a silver elf seducers her in her dreams, and the pull of magic becomes too much.
In this strongly-written paranormal romance/dystopian fantasy, Jennifer Provost has artfully constructed a world of beauty and suspicion. [Tweet this!] And the alternate reality – the otherworld – of magic, has a delightful Alice in Wonderland-like quality to it, with Iron queens and silver servants.
As to the love story, the romance between the two lead characters seemed to take off artificially fast, but this is saved by the heroine’s own acknowledgement that something unusual is happening. I appreciate that the protagonists treat each other with love and respect – yes, it is possible for an alpha male in a romance novel to behave like a decent human being.
Four stars for an excellent diversion. If you enjoy light romance with your fantasy, you’ll enjoy Copper Girl, available on Amazon.
