Présentation de l'éditeur

This is a short story (15,100 words or 55 pages) intended for readers of the Elder Races who enjoy Liam Cuelebre, aka Peanut, as a character.

Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.

Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.

A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more Power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.

They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.

When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there’s no doubt about it—he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.


PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL is part of a three-story series about Pia, Dragos, and Peanut. Each story stands alone, but fans might want to read all three: DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY, PIA SAVES THE DAY, and PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ONE OF MY FAVORITE SERIES!!! 8 juillet 2014
Par Zenhip - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This short story is wonderful... The peanut rocks!! I had a big smile on my face reading it and like all of Thea's books I leaves me wanting MORE! Did anyone else want to keep reading in "Pia Saves the Day"? Oh yeah! Here's one reader with her hand up... But what a great set-up for another Pia-Dragos installment. And while we're on the subject, can we have more Carling and Rune as well? There is still so many unanswered questions in that storyline (not to mention that I just love them). And Aryal, well she's my hero! That book had me laughing and crying at the same time...

And this is exactly what makes Thea Harrison such a stand out writer. Her characters are not only memorable... They feel like friends. Which means her character development is extraordinary. And the chemistry between is off the charts, not only because the scenes are unquestionably hot but because she has taken great care to ensure that the reader has a connection to her characters. Thea Harrison is a good writer... And this makes a big difference.

I love the PNR genre, and I am quickly reading my way through every author. However, I've found that many of these books have started to bleed over after awhile, with some very notable exceptions (we all have our favorites authors). But Harrison takes us into a world of endless possibilities with character that feel ALIVE! And in my opinion, she has created one of the best Paranormal worlds this genre has seen. She has done more with a short story what many authors are not able to do with a series of books. She sucks you in. Completely.

So what can I say... I love the Peanut! So many landmarks are in this book... The different nuances of growing pains for both mother and son, Liam's first experience of real independence and problem solving which was imbued with fairness, compassion, inspired loyalty and the fierce protectiveness of the Wyr... And clearly, the embodiment of Pia and Dragos combined... Quire the combination! And, as if that weren't enough... His first crush. "can you be my girlfriend for a week?" Because how can he make a longer commitment at the rate of his growth spurts? Priceless. But I can only hope that Liam has another growth spurt. Very soon! Thank you Thea for another wonderful... And memorable, book!!!

If you are a PNR fan and have not read The Elder Races series start from the beginning and just sit back and enjoy. This one is not to be missed!

AN ENCHANTING DOSE OF WARM FUZZIES ...

PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL by Thea Harrison is the third in a series of paranormal novellas featuring Dragos, Pia and Liam, aka Peanut. I fell in love with Thea's Elder Races series from the very first book, DRAGON BOUND, and every book following has been an exciting treat. This novella, officially # 6.7 in the line-up, is another marvelous addition. I can't get enough of Dragos' family! They're my favorites! This tale has just a tad of romance, but it still has plenty of sweet courtesy of Peanut. Peanut is growing in huge bursts thanks to his dragon half. I hate that his folks are missing many of the familiar childhood milestones, but Peanut is writing his own life story his way.

My full review has been posted to Reading Between the Wines Book Club.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I absolutely adore Peanut! If only more "adults" were like him...! 29 juillet 2014
Par Kathy Davie - Publié sur Amazon.com

This very short story is 6.7 in the Elder Races paranormal romance series, and the third in the Peanut internal trilogy. The focus is back on Peanut, and he's definitely picking up on his parents' morals.

Normally, I'd give this a "3", but I love the message Harrison is sending in this…so, I'm a sucker for child empowerment…

My Take
It's a bit stiff, but a lot of fun to read. It's all the crummy bits of school rolled into one day for Liam, and you can immediately tell that he's not putting up with any crap. He's honest, protective, and extremely observant.

He's also a little boy with a little boy's dreams and fantasies. Wrap them up in a being able to change into a flying dragon, and…whoa, nelly, lol. He's also a little boy with a child's fears.

It's a family with a few upgrades in ability. It's a boy on a fast track of growth, one most moms will be grateful their children aren't going through at quite the same pace.
"It was so charming how Pia's thinking went straight to the justice system, while he thought of things like vivisection and dismemberment."

You will crack up as you read how Liam analyzes situations and decides on what he thinks are the best actions. It still makes me laugh when I re-read what he tells Marika about long-term commitments, lol. We'd all be a lot better off if we did as well as Liam. That comment Hugh makes about cows…well, it's not the sort of statement you expect to make to little boys.

Ooh, I do love Pia's comment to the principal. I suspect it sums up how most teachers and school officials are about bullies.

It's the best of Dragos and Pia all wrapped up in one little boy. You can't help but be proud of him.

The Story
Pia and Dragos are concerned that Peanut is growing too fast, and they're desperate that he have the chance to play with children his own size. So Peanut, er, Liam, is going to school!

In the end, it's just like Spy Wyr, Liam's favorite game — Liam is positive that Uncle Graydon will send him out on mission. And school is exactly that, a mission.

The Characters
Peanut, oops, I mean, Liam Cuelebre, er, Liam Giovanni, is six months old and the size of a five-year-old. Intellect-wise, he's much smarter than most mature adults. He's a dragonshifter like his dad, a white one. And all that eavesdropping has been paying off.

Dragos Cuelebre is a dragonshifter, and the most powerful one in our world. He still hasn't recovered from the accident in "Pia Saves the Day", 6.6. He's mated to a Pia, a dainty and loving lady. Hugh is one of his nannies. Eva is one of Pia's bodyguards.

Graydon and Constantine are some of Dragos' sentinels. Kris is one of Dragos' assistants.

Mrs. Elora Teaberry is Liam's schoolteacher. Hopefully there aren't many like her in the school systems. Doreen Chambers is the principal. Mr. Huddleston is another teacher.

Marika is the Dark Fae girlfriend. Andrew is the ringleader and Joel and Brad are his tools. Perrin is the kid they were picking on.

The Cover
I do love this cover. Peanut is such a cutie in this partial full face close-up with a blurry classroom behind him.

The title is exactly what happens, "Peanut Goes to School".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Different than the usual Elder Races novella, but thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless. 11 août 2014
Par @Julia_ATUF - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

The love story between Dragos and Pia Cuelebre extends far past the initial meet-cute and sexual chemistry. Through marriage, child birth, and public scrutiny, these two newly weds are as fun to read about now as when they were coming to terms with their mutual attraction. The addition of their son Liam, a.k.a. “Peanut”, to the narrative has been a new an entertaining challenge, as Liam has all the characteristic curiosity and mischief of a toddler mixed with a magical heritage that requires taking “baby proofing” to a whole new level.

As mentioned in the blurb for PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL, this short story is different than the other Elder Races novellas. Rather than featuring a long, stand alone love story, PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL gives readers a short, sweet glimpse of life with Dragos and Pia from Liam’s perspective. Given Peanut’s unusual nature, I enjoyed having this glimpse of his thoughts and potential future. Liam is growing and changing at a magical rate, making a story like this invaluable to understanding what milestones his development has reached. The events in Harrison’s shorts always have an impact, too, even if the ripples seem small. Through Liam’s perspective, we see Pia and Dragos still dealing with the events of PIA SAVES THE DAY, offering hints of potential issues for future books.

That being said, the central plot-line of PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL is essentially a classic grade school tale, with the added fillip of Peanut’s potential to flip out and cause grievous bodily harm. A sweet little story that offers tantalizing hints for what is in store with Wyr’s first family, PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL will thrill fans of the series, but anyone new to this world should probably start at the delicious beginning of it all with DRAGON BOUND.

Sexual Content: None.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I had a few little issues with this story but otherwise it was short, sweet and utterly adorable! I love Peanut! 16 août 2014

I had a difficult time deciding how to rate this short novella, part three in a three novella story about Dragos, Pia and their son, Liam, set in the Elder Races universe. I love this adorable little family and could read a new story about them every day. Even before the little Peanut came along Dragos and Pia were one of my favorite PNR couples. And Liam? Oh my goodness. This beautiful child is so precocious! These little snippets into his growing up are wonderful to read.

Although this is part three all the stories can be read as stand alone. In Peanut Goes to School Liam heads off to first grade where he encounters a teacher that's difficult to get a along with and bullies. Thea Harrison does a fantastic job of getting into Peanut's head. While he is growing at an unprecedented rate (both physically and mentally) he's still a kid. He's also immensely Powerful and is developing his own unique abilities. This makes him a handful for his parents, but this kid has such a support system!

There were a few things that felt inconsistent for me about this story, which is why it gets three stars. Warning: from here on out there be spoilers...

While I think Thea Harrison did a great job of portraying Peanut there was a (ridiculously cute) conversation between him and a Dark Fae girl, Marika. Marika is a third grader but uses the phrases "hella awesome" and "excuse my French." Yeah, kids repeat things but they don't usually know how to use those monkey-see, monkey-do phrases in context. When Marika agrees to be his girlfriend for a week (ah! so cute!) Liam tells another kid, "I'm dating an older woman now." This seemed really out of character even for this highly intelligent kid to say.

The other issue I had with this story was Liam's evil teacher. In a school with other Wyr children and at least a few part Fae children I would assume the school would have teachers who know how to handle these kids. Apparently not. And Dragos and Pia only informing the principal and not Liam's teacher about his true identity was a huge blunder. Really? You know how special your kid is and you didn't tell the woman who will be teaching him and caring for him in the classroom when you have an army of people usually watching him? Really? Sorry, not buying it. As for the nasty teacher while I didn't like her for a villain in this story sometimes bad teachers really do through the cracks. Her behavior was so repulsive, but I still find it difficult to believe that a teacher who would overreact so quickly and shake a child hadn't been investigated or fired yet. End rant.

I did enjoy reading this and will be looking out for Peanut's next adventures. Hopefully Thea Harrison doesn't make us wait long because this kid is growing up fast and I don't want to miss any of it!
