I really didn't expect to experience the range of emotions I felt while reading the third book in the Shift Happens series. I knew it would be laugh out loud funny. I knew it would be weird, and wacky, and wild. What I didn't expect was for it to be sweet and sappy. And while you don't get a lot of Essie, Hank, Granny, and Dwayne you do learn more about the history of Dima, Nicolai ,and the Were Dragons and their fight for freedom from a cruel, dictatorial, tyrannical King who just happens to be Dima's father.
