The Dragon s Gift Book Review:

Is China a rogue donor, as some media pundits suggest? Or is China helping the developing world pave a pathway out of poverty, as the Chinese claim? In the last few years, China's aid program has leapt out of the shadows. Media reports about huge aid packages, support for pariah regimes, regiments of Chinese labor, and the ruthless exploitation of workers and natural resources in some of the poorest countries in the world sparked fierce debates. These debates, however, took place with very few hard facts. China's tradition of secrecy about its aid fueled rumors and speculation, making it difficult to gauge the risks and opportunities provided by China's growing embrace. This well-timed book, by one of the world's leading experts, provides the first comprehensive account of China's aid and economic cooperation overseas. Deborah Brautigam tackles the myths and realities, explaining what the Chinese are doing, how they do it, how much aid they give, and how it all fits into their "going global" strategy. Drawing on three decades of experience in China and Africa, and hundreds of interviews in Africa, China, Europe and the US, Brautigam shines new light on a topic of great interest. China has ended poverty for hundreds of millions of its own citizens. Will Chinese engagement benefit Africa? Using hard data and a series of vivid stories ranging across agriculture, industry, natural resources, and governance, Brautigam's fascinating book provides an answer. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with China's rise, and what it might mean for the challenge of ending poverty in Africa.

Dragon s Gift Book Review:

Three dragons. One woman. A reverse harem fantasy that will leave you breathless and begging for more... Dareena Sellis is a nobody. The orphaned daughter of a no-name farmer, she toils away as a serving girl at Hallowdale Inn, her only marriage prospects either shipping off to war, or pawing at her skirts with their grubby, gnarled hands. But fate takes a strange turn the day a dragon huntress comes to town. Suddenly, Dareena is swept off to Dragon's Keep, trading in her raggedy dresses for silken gowns, her closet-sized room for feather pillows and spacious gardens, and her miserable suitor for three very handsome, veryvirile dragon princes. For Dareena is not a nobody. She is the Dragon's Gift--the one woman chosen by the gods every century to bear children for the future king of Dragonfell. Despite her pre-ordained path, Dareena's fate is far from certain. The crown has not given birth to more than one son in nearly a thousand years, and the line of succession is far from clear. Neither of the princes are willing to cede Dareena to the other, and yet she must choose. For the enemy is knocking on Dragonfell's door, and Dareena's decision could either mean the kingdom's salvation... ...or annihilation.

Dragon s Gift Book Review:

A mistaken identity. A fated mate. A Merry Christmas. Sterling Ordered to hunt down his little brother in the human world, Sterling is torn between duty and finding his own place as the middle son of a controlling father. Dragon law insists that living among the humans, mating with them, is strictly forbidden, but it’s hard to believe the law is right, especially around his happily mated brothers. He misses his clan, and in this time that seems devoted to giving gifts and showing love to the people who mean the most, Sterling feels like he’s horribly out of place, caught between honor and a life of his own. Of course, when he stumbles across a curvy, tempting woman in need of some Christmas cheer, breaking the law and drinking some eggnog don’t seem like such a bad idea. Cassandra How can Santa call in sick two days before Christmas Eve? Working as a manager in a department store is hardly Cassandra’s ideal career, and if the replacement Santa she found doesn’t show up soon, she’s certain it’ll be a short-lived one too. Although the hot, giant beast of a man walking up to her hardly looks like the jolly man with a belly that jiggles like a bowl full of jelly, she’ll take what she can get. Even if it means using pillows from the home department to mask his rippling abs. She never thought she’d find Santa Claus all that attractive, but with Sterling Carmine sitting on the throne in the winter wonderland, she finds herself stealing glances at him, watching him laugh and smile with the kids lined up to sit on his lap. He’s hiding something though, and when the real replacement Santa shows up, Sterling’s got some explaining to do if he wants to save Christmas after all.

Ancient Magic Book Review:

I'm good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third-but not because I want to be good at hiding. I have to be. I'm a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of the dragon's soul. Being born with the dragon's covetousness should be a sweet gig - I have the power to find and steal any type of treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals. But it doesn't come without a price - stealing powers requires that I kill, and others would destroy me if they discover what I am. In a world full of magic, hiding my species is the only way to survive. Finding magical artifacts is the only way to pay the bills. It's a dangerous job when you can barely use your magic, but that's one of the things I like about it. When Aidan Merrick, the most powerful shifter in the city, hired me to find an ancient scroll, I didn't want to take the job. His immense amount of power reminds me of too much of murky memories from a past I can't remember. But I don't have a choice. The scroll reveals what I am. And if anyone finds out, I'm dead.

A man had been convicted, but was he the one the police had been looking for, or had he been framed? Kat is thrown backwards through time on a journey to discover a terrible truth.
