I enjoyed Lawless, book one in The Ironfire Legacy, but I IMMENSELY enjoyed Priceless! Everything about it was simply awesome, but the relationship between Nula and Tiers was by my favorite part of this story.

It makes me smile to think that in book one, I wasn't fond of Nula and didn't really like her. Meanwhile, within the first chapter of Priceless, I'm already starting to *really* like her and continue to like her EVEN more as the novella progresses. I give major props to the author for taki

Okay, so I will admit I wasn't as fond of the main characters in this book as I was of the ones in the first of the series, but I did grow to like them more as the story unfolded. The story world is still awesome, and this one added even more dimensions, added history and new info about the dragons. Some real surprises start hitting about half-way through. ...more

This is a fun novella set in the same world as Lawless, featuring one of the characters who played a major role in that book. Nula is a countess with a heavy history of espionage and betrayal, someone who keeps her heart closely guarded.

Unfortunately for her, the dragon diplomat coming for a visit turns out to be her embermate! Chaos ensues as they both struggle with their pasts and this new bond that threatens their lives.

This is a romantic steampunk novella, with politics, imminent danger, and

Okay, I pretty much loved Lawless to bits, so when I was offered a review copy of Priceless it was all *grabby hands*.

Priceless is not as... involved, since it's like an in-between-novella that focusses on Nula Thredsing, one of the minorish characters in Lawless, and Tiers Sunscaler, who if I recall correctly hasn't quite showed up yet, other than in a few mentions. So yeah-- if this is a tactic to make readers excited for book 2, then Ippolito has nailed it. Because Priceless...

Priceless is book one and half in the Ironfire Legacy, an inventive steampunk series that combines fantasy creatures, super powers, and espionage with a thread of romance. The series is aimed at New Adult readers.

Enchanted by the first book, Lawless, I was eager to return to the world of Sekastra. Priceless draws the reader into the complicated and challenging life of Nula Threadsing, an ambitious double-agent from the first book. Nula now seeks a position on the grand council as the Liason of D

Love it

A great read, quick, and action packed with awesome characters. Romance without too much mush. I Highly recommend this book!

A Lot of Story in a Small Package

I thoroughly enjoyed Nula and Tiers story. It’s so fully developed and tightly written, it reads like a full length novel. In part, because it picks up where Lawless left off; no time is wasted reacquainting the reader to Nula. The story world expands organically and at a good pace. Then there’s Freckles, because cat dragons make everything better.

What happens when a man-dragon discovers his heart is bound to a woman he just met—and being separated means death? That, in a dragon-shell, is the premise of this novella, which builds on the intriguing Embermate concept I fell in love with in the first book (“Lawless”).

Tiers Sunscaler, gentle dragon diplomat can feel the Embermate pull from the moment he lays eyes on Nula Threadsing. There's just one problem—she's human. Will she prove strong enough to forge the Embermate bond? If not, they mi

Priceless by Janeen Ippolito, takes place after the events of Lawless and should not be read first. Trust me there is a lot that hinges on the events of the first book.

Priceless follows the character of Nula, a minor character from lawless. I wasn't sure if I would like this book as I didn't care for her character in the first book. It turns out she just doesn't like coming in second. Once she takes center stage her imposing personality becomes confidence and drive. Also her back story makes her

I hadn’t read LAWLESS, but I still found the universe easy to immerse myself in. While short, this is a complete story with dynamic characters who go on a journey and come out the other side a little wiser.
Since it’s a novella, PRICELESS gave me more questions than answers, but it held true to my dragon shifter expectations, and I would happily revisit these characters and this fantasy realm again and again.

Two words (or one hyphenated word ... it really depends on your point of view) CAT-DRAGON!

Honestly, if that's not enough to get you running to Amazon, I don't know what is.

However, if I must expand, this is a fun adventure with a romance with some heat, a dose of mystery, and a creative world.

Much Steampunk.

Much dragon.

Much cat-dragon!

Fun quick read. I love Tiers' self-confidence and Nula's stubbornness. And who doesn't love a death unicorn? ...more

So, I was one of the blessed folks who read this novella as an ARC, and I kinda forgot to leave my review in exchange, at the time of my excitement (although totally intended to, I promise!)... whoops! My bad, guys, haha. If you loved Lawless like I did, you'll for sure love Priceless. Since most of the other reviewers summed it up pretty well, I'll just say you get more backstory and insight to Nula and her new embermate, Tiers, who I adore.

Priceless is a novella that is between Lawless and Faithless. It focuses on Nula Thredsing, who was a minor character in Lawless, and Tiers Sundcaller.

This was clearly meant to make readers excited for Faithless, and Janeen Ippolito did just that. There is quite a bit of snark and craziness, spies, a cat-dragon (!), and romance.

I absolutely loved this short bridge from book one and book two. It added quite a bit to the world, and I highly recommend checking this one out!

The Price of a Spy

Double agent and diplomat, unloved daughter of liars and traitors, Nula Thredsing desperately needs someone to rely on-whether she realizes it or not. She finally has a chance to step out of the shadows, if she can find two rogue dragons.
This novella is an excellent bridge between Lawless and Faithless. We get to meet several new characters, including the adorable and mysterious Freckles the cat-dragon.

Refreshing and Direct

Nula and Tiers are perfect together. I’ve read this book before and I found it just as engaging and enjoyable the second time around. This is book 1.5, a novella taking place after the story with Kesia and Zephyn, which is the only complaint— it’s shorter than a full book, and I loved it.

The author took my love-to-hate character from Lawless and made her likeable. I have mixed feelings about that... :)
