The shadows had dogged her footsteps for the rest of the trip, and all the clichéd lurking had pissed her right off.
“A leprechaun?” She hadn’t expected that; given how many Newfoundlanders were working the Alberta oilfields, she’d assumed his accent was east coast. “Aren’t you a little tall for a leprechaun?”
It was one thing to know that dragons were big, in the same sort of way space was big, secure in the knowledge it was unlikely the entirety of either would ever have to be faced, and it was another thing entirely to stand and watch a dragon drop out of the night sky. Around fifteen meters from branching horns to the tip of a lashing tail, this particular dragon was ebony and gold, iridescent and beautiful in the way of very, very dangerous things where admiration and terror became easy reactions to confuse.
“I am a dangerous enemy, Ms. Gale.”
“Interestingly enough, you’re a dangerous friend too.”
"Honestly, Michael, who needs that much variations?"
"Apparently, your grandmother." He couldn't stop snickering. "Anything look interesting?"
"I don't care if one of them looks like yours, I'm not even considering the word interesting as a reaction to a drawer full of my grandmother's Toys. What am I supposed to do with them? Shut up," she snapped as the snickering turned into a shout of laughter. "I mean, I can't just throw them out. What if the bag breaks open and everyone knows where they came from?"
Sexual Content: some may find the casual mention of multiple partners uncomfortable. some may find the role of the men in the family a bit limited.
Sexual Content: The fact that this big, magical family keeps the magic in the family by sometimes having cousins marry, or just have sex with, cousins is a bit icky, but for all that the sex is not explicit.
Sexual Content: Just some, and not, by any means, flagrant. But there is some. And the Aunties want to ensure generations of little Gales continue, so there is some push on that end. Actually, the whole book seems to weave around procreation, now that I think about it. And lets just say that couples don't seem to the be norm. And the older generations are still active.
