You can see this full review and at Book Briefs bookbriefs The Azure Kingdom is part of the Skeleton Key book series I really love the set up of this series It is a group of almost 30 authors, each one writing a book featuring a skeleton key that unlocks a secret world But all of the books are vastly different Different themes, different age groups and different sub genres I just love that idea So whether you like young adult, new adult or adult, you will be able to find a book for you If you w [...]

I have no idea why this had such good reviews it was utter tripe The writing was reminiscent of a kid learning how to construct a sentence The characters were two dimensional and the story was so rushed and unbelievable I finished it because I thought maybe I was missing something and it would redeem itself at the end Nope.
I sought out Michelle myself, because I had been following her on facebook, and reading about her books, and I found them all enticing I also love her name And so, I went to her on my own, and offered up my services, and she was ready for the dare if you will I allowed her to choose which book we would review, giving her the benefit of exposure So let s learn about the The Azure Kingdom shall we Alison Wescot s mother died, and left her an antique store This didn t impress Alison much, to her th [...]

Fantasy, not what I usually read, but when one of your most favorite authors asks you to read the book she wrote and its fantasy, I signed up to read that book and I was surly not disappointed The Azure Kingdom was an amazing read, I literally could not put it down, and when I realized I was at the end of the book I wanted of Alison and Lucas to read.Alison is struck working at her mothers shop, her mother has passed away and when she was dying her only wish was the Alison keep the shop running [...]
I haven t read much in the fantasy genre but Michelle Dare s, The Azure Kingdom, may change that I have read all of Ms Dare s other works and have enjoyed them greatly It is refreshing to see an author step out of their comfort zone and try another genre Ms Dare weaves a beautiful tale where dreams really do come true, at least for Lucas and Alison.Nightly Ali is plagued by dreams of a man she is drawn to and a field of blue flowers, little does she know someone else has similar dreams Alison is [...]
From The Book Junkie Reads .This was the first of the 28 book Skeleton Key series that I read I had the best adventure and journey There was no doubt that I would enjoy every second of this visit to the Azure Kingdom The blurb to the book got me with not doubt it would be the first of the series that I try Alison was than she could have every dreams she was Her mother knew this and took steps to make sure when it was time she knew just how special she was Lucas Azure was just the man to take he [...]

Since I have read other novels by this author to say I was surprised is a understatement This one shows her talent and ability to create I do so love to be taken into the different with characters that can keep a hold of me there I started with Alison as soon as she enters in with how it looks alot like her dreams, she had me by the hand Then along came Lucas who sealed it to have me stay awhile and see what adventure the two would take me on The things that are seen and shown in here will play [...]
This book was really easy to read It had great flow and the overall storyline was interesting I really liked the fantasy and the dragons It was interesting to read a modern day story with almost an antique feel to it My only concern is the insta love aspect, it didn t feel like it progressed seamlessly This isn t the first book by this author and it definitely wont be the last

I was utterly captivated with The Azure Kingdom from the very first pages It s a different book from what Michelle Dare usually writes, but she did a phenomenal job writing her first fantasy book It s full of romance, chivalry, knights, kings, betrayal, mystery, and dragons, all told with some spice Alison has lost her mother and has inherited her antique store, so she leaves her job and moves to a small town to run her mother s shop Very soon, she discovers her mother has been hiding a huge sec [...]
I received this ebook in exchange for an honest review.I don t know how this book is getting 5 stars.I really wanted to like this book and I thought I would after reading the description Then I saw the cover My first thought after seeing it was this is going to be one of those books Little plot, no growth, lots of lust sex Note I m not a prude I would just like to know what I m getting into before starting a book Someone used the words tripe and smut in another review and those perfectly describ [...]
Fantasy is a genre that I only dive into occasionally That begin said I was honestly blow away with Michelle Dare s novella The Azure Kingdom Dare paints a scenic picture of a daring land with dragons, knights and azure flowers that I wanted to get lost in and never return.The Azure Kingdom was brilliantly heart warming, lovingly sweet and sexy all at once The moment you start reading you find your self thrust into the life of Alison Wescot A young woman who has recently lost her mother and is t [...]

I need to say up front, I do not like fantasy books all BUT, I love Michelle Dare So, for that reason, I read this book and gave it a chance Michelle Dare stepped out of her comfort writing zone and I stepped out of my reading comfort zone I was captivated from the beginning I knew if any author could get me to love a genre that I don t normally like, it would be her Five stars isn t enough stars I m just hoping each brother and their sister get their own story Alison inherited an antique store [...]

This book has been one of the most interesting books I think I ve read in a fantasy romance genre in a long time My emotions ran all over the place with this book, from sadness at the death of our heroine s mother, to an elderly couple telling her something was not right with a piece of furniture, prompting a further investigation and find Once she finds the key, she does something, then sits in front of the door, goes and does something else, then goes back to the door, off and on through the n [...]
