In CRIMSON DAHLIA the Svatura's are frantically trying to
regroup knowing their enemy is ready to strike again.
Lila Jenner is traveling with a team to seek out others of
their kind. But a large part of Lila's plan had been to
escape the sight of the man who holds her heart but will
not acknowledge their bond. Tired of being pushed away, she
forces herself to move on.
Ramsey has been determined to control the fire raging in
him; literally, he could lose control and set fire to
anything and anyone within reach. In his determination, he
denies the magical bond that was only his and Lila's.
When the enemy surfaces and takes Lila and her team, only
Ramsey's threadbare link will help him find her.
CRIMSON DAHLIA, Svatura book 3 by author Abigail
in a word ... Amazing! It picks up where HYACINTH ended
with the Svatura and Vyusher's trying to band their many

In CRIMSON DAHLIA we have Ramsey, a fire-setter and Lila
he was her te'sorthene (soul mate) but since he was afraid

The whole story line is intriguing, well written, and fast
paced. It makes you want to kick Ramsey, but then hug him

before ... amazing. Like the other Svatura books
does end in a bit of a cliffhanger, but it only feeds
the fire of wanting to get your hands on the next book,
which I plan to do as soon as possible. Ms. Owen books are
all winners and CRIMSON DAHLIA is one of the best.
Lila Jenner left her family to start a new life away from
Ramsey Pierce. After decades of rejection, she needs the
chance to discover who she is without him. Helping to
rebuild relationships between tribes of Svatura is just the
opportunity she needs.
Determined that the fire raging inside him will never harm
Lila, Ramsey denies the magical bond that could be theirs
alone. But when an old enemy resurfaces and Lila disappears,
he realizes he'll do anything to win her back and make her his.
However, Maddox, driven by a centuries-old quest for
revenge, is stronger than any of them ever imagined. Friends
and enemies must band together against this shared threat.
Even then, they may discover too late that one dragon is not
