Shimmer: The Beginning by Nancy Badger book review and book spotlights

A fairy and a Scottish dragon juggle passion amid a waterfall’s crystal-clear fairy pool.  Could a little bit of fairy dust be the answer? 


Nancy Lee Badger brings you a love story called SHIMMER, a prequel to her Clan of Dragon series. A long time ago, off the coast of Scotland’s Isle of Skye, something incredible began. Among lush green forests, flower-filled meadows, and black jagged mountains, stagnant pools of algae and muck rush to the sea. Robina, daughter of the fairy king, threw wish dust to create a cool, clear, sweet-smelling fairy pool. When a huge black winged creature fell from the sky, she feared her very life was in danger. She never thought she would lose her heart.

Duff, a dragon, was dying, and his hopes to find a mate and produce offspring looked bleak. Drinking from a pool at the base of a waterfall, he sensed another otherworldly creature lurking nearby. A dragon, claiming she was no dragon, knocked him off his feet. When she threw the dust, Duff learned about her ability to shift. As they fought human hunters, and a dark fairy, Robina stole his heart. He surprised her by shifting multiple times without her magical help.

My thoughts

Shimmer The Beginning is the wonderful prequel to her Clan of Dragons series.
We meet Duff, a dying dragon who thinks his future has come to an end until he meets Robina. She has melted his heart. Once they both started to shift there was no end in sight to the love they have for one another and the things to come.

I love the way we learn about how the dragons come to be and of course the authors love for the Scottish island.

A wonderful read as always by this author. I love Nancy’s writing she knows how to get the readers interest right from page 1 of any of her books. I have read a lot of Nancy’s books and you will not be disappointed at all.

If you like dragons and shifters with romance you will love this series.
