    The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city.

    "Eve Dallas In Death Series a must for everyone"
    Overall

    I have read each of the books in the series now I am going back and listening to each book. It only gets better each character is perfect. The narrator has the voice and inflections and quirks of each character. This is an amazing series and it is read phenomenally. Great writing, great characters and great reading! It does not get any better then this!

    A clandestine race of half-dragon, half-humans known as dragon-shifters lives among us. Bastian, leader of the Nightfury dragon clan, is sworn to protect humankind at all costs. For him, honor and duty always come first. When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die. Myst, the woman given into his care, is the most extraordinary he’s ever met, and though he can’t bear the thought of harming her, he is bound by duty.

    Story
    What did you like best about Fury of Fire? What did you like least?

    The writer is limited to colloquialisms, slang, and pop culture. I found it very hard to listen to 200+ year old dragons talking as if they walked of the set from a CW teen drama. I enjoyed the story, and felt compelled to get the next book, but, I read it instead and it was not so bad to read the words. It was torture to listen to the OMG's, and LOLs, and references to TV shows.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author created a nice Dragon society, and a shifter culture that caught my imagination and wanted a happy ending.


    What didn’t you like about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance?

    First book by him I have listened to and I will think twice about getting another one. I don't know if it was his performance or the writing that did not lend itself to be read out loud. When you say OMG, and LOL you sound like you are 15, not a nurse practitioner in her third decade, not a dragon who slept for 200 years. At least when you read OMG your brain substitutes the words and you can move on.


    Could you see Fury of Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes it would come right after Vampire Diaries, and Gossip Girl. It was written for that age group even though it has a lot of explicit sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the series in two weeks, and can't wait for the next one. THe story line and the characters intrigued and gripped me, I just had to read it and not listen to it.

    Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.

    After the last couple of books I thought the author had lost her love for this story line, but I was wrong! THis book is in the top 5 of my favorites! Strong female, no whiny male, good chemistry, good story and good character building!
