Fabulous fantasy romance romp from this author duo

Pool of Dreams by Sam Burns &  W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love it when authors take common tropes and give them a twist and then you get a glorious fantasy romance with mythological undertones like this.

It draws on many folk takes, lore and myths from what generally gets put under the Celtic umbrella but also pulls in the Arthurian element of a magic sword and an unlikely heir.

I couldn’t have been happier when I got to read this book early because I knew it would be a good one and the authors delivered in spades.

Syren and Audric both have huge fears to overcome, neither of them feels they’re particularly brave, but as they set off together on their quest it becomes clear that together they may be the answer.

There were times throughout this book when I had no idea what was going to come next.

While I spotted the likely villain fairly early on, it didn’t spoil any part of the narrative because the beauty of a fantasy story using the Fae as inspiration is that there are almost limitless ways they can do people over!

Here it’s Syren’s former lover, the Fae Prince, who’s threatening to extinguish all human life and return the Fae to Audric’s kingdom.

Without revealing any spoilers, the plot takes you through an emotional rollercoaster of action, feelings, the beginnings of a deep connection, friendships within Audric’s keep and dangers lurking in plain sight.

The eventual final confrontation is as epic as in any fantasy series and I was internally screaming as things come to a head.

At one point I thought I’d be having some serious words with the authors as I got very teary. Thankfully they redeemed themselves later 😁

While I could ramble on even more about Pool of Dreams without much trouble, I’ll wrap up by saying if you like your fantasy to have high stakes, want villains to despise and heroes to love, and a romance that makes your heart sing, this book will meet all those needs and more.

I’ve already told them I want more in this world!

TRAV

I remember the first time I met Dylan Rodriguez. It was one sweaty encounter I’ll never forget.

The second time we met, he arrested me. I can still see the hot scowl on his beautiful face as he slapped handcuffs on me and realized I was … me.

Dylan’s main goal in life is to forget he ever met me. My goal is to make him mine.

Turns out, I’m better at this game than he is.

DYLAN

When my law enforcement career falls to pieces in front of my own eyes, I don’t know who I can trust.

I have nowhere to go. No one to turn to.

Asking Trav for help is a last resort, but I’m desperate.

If he can’t get me out of this mess, I may as well turn myself over to the guys hunting me down.

I’m not sure which will be more difficult: protecting my life or my heart.

Because when it comes to love, my heart wants what my brain doesn’t. It wants Travis West.

About The Author

Eden Finley

Eden Finley is an Amazon bestselling author who writes steamy contemporary romances that are full of snark and light-hearted fluff.

She doesn’t take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart.

With a short attention span that rivals her son’s, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF.

She’s also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don’t make sense to anyone else.
