Zinnia by Christina Bauer – Angelbound Offspring #3 – Review
Zinnia by Christina Bauer (Angelbound Offspring #3) Review
So the last time I did a review for Christina Bauer it was after having first read Angelbound and Lincoln! Aaahhh still so crazy in love with those books! Annnd I’ve since read the others that come after it! THIS particular post is for Zinnia though! THHHISSSS is like..a part of the same world..but the next generation..lol so don’t think “oh..we’re reading about Myla and Lincoln?” Nope.
I don’t want to give anything away because uhh…duhhh I hate spoilers! HOWEVER! I will say that if you’ve been following this story since Angelbound Origins, you’re going to love this next installment! Or maybe you read them out of order? That’s okay if you’re crazy like that lol you’ll still love this!
I just love this whole world Christina Bauer has created. I’m not sure if I’ll ever tire of it <3 Have you ever read a book and tried talking about it WITHOUT giving anything away? But it was just..so good that it was near impossible so the only thing you could really do or say was “UGH just trust me..read the book!” That’s how I feel about Zinnia. Check out the blurb below and I think after reading it, you’ll see what I mean! <3

As the last dragon shifter, I live alone, hiding in one of Earth’s sacred deserts. My human handlers tell me that I have no parents, no name, and no purpose other than to train for battle and one day become a vessel for the reincarnation of Chimera, the greatest dragon shifter of all. Sadly, Chimera’s rebirth will mean my own death. But my handlers say this sacrifice is a noble fate that will rebuild the dragon shifter world.
I shall die on my seventeenth birthday. That’s five days from now.
Then I hear music thumping across the desert. I take my mortal form, follow the sound, and find humans dancing in what they call a rave. There is a stage and a rock band. One thing quickly becomes clear: Unlike the audience, the musicians are dragon shifters, just like me. And one of them, the guitar player Rhodes, makes my knees turn watery. The lead singer, Kaps, has something strangely familiar about her.
It all adds up to one conclusion: My handlers lied to me. I’m not the last of my kind. Memories reappear. I had parents once. Portia and Tempest. I even had a name. Zinnia. Perhaps I have a reason to live as well. I step past the dancing humans to confront the players.
I will find out the full truth, no matter what.
Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
