No warrior of the Nightfury pack is more complicated or damaged than Wick. Scarred from a childhood of slavery and torture, Wick cannot bear the touch of another person. But all bets are off when he meets J. J. Solares. When she is unjustly imprisoned, Wick agrees to help rescue and keep her from harm. But Wick lives a life of self-imposed isolation, and venturing into the world to seek justice for J. J. may be more than he can take.
Brutalized by the harsh reality of prison, J. J. thinks she is hallucinating when a majestic dark-haired god sweeps in to save her - and Wick is shaken to his core by the attraction he feels for J. J. But neither is out of harm's way yet. When they find themselves at the center of a Dragonkind war, they are forced to make the ultimate choice - surrender to their fears or accept each other's love.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This was my first taste into the Dragonfury series but it certainly won't be my last as I'm eagerly about to download all the previous books. Yes, it would have been an even better listen if I'd started at book 1 but hey I didn't and it was still a very enjoyable listen.
Who doesn't love drool-worthy Alpha Dragon shifter stories and this is so much more than just a romance as the talented author moves the good and evil Dragons around like a Chess game and you just don't know what her next move will be, but there's certainly a few surprises in store.
Wick is a complex character who's imprisoned by memories of a torturous past which outwardly makes him a fierce, feared but loyal member of the Nightfuries and he just hates to be touched. But that all changes while on his next mission - to rescue Jamison (J.J.), also a tortured, guilt ridden, vulnerable victim of circumstances, and he arrives just in time - however neither one was expecting fate to provide an 'Energy Fuse' bonding them together forever. Wick tries to fight the pull..... but we all know how that's going to end!
There's lots of action, a plot that's brimming with intrigue, snappy quick dialogue, plenty of interesting characters but I felt the sub plots took up a lot of the story rather than the romance. However, there were touching, intimate, tender scenes between the two fragile souls as they both learnt to trust, share secrets and open themselves up to the possibility of finally deserving love.
Worth a credit? Yes it would have been but it's a bargain at $7.34 for over 12 hours of listening pleasure so I saved my credit and bought it at an even better price when it was on sale - so I'm one happy purring pussycat.
I didn't make it past chapter 4 or so.
Maybe if you've been following this series, you'll like the book, but I have not, this was my first one, and I couldn't get around the writing despite the perfectly acceptable performance.
The reader wasn't bad, but the story itself, meh. Very tell, not show.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I knew coming into this book that Wick is darkened with a past that future relationship was just unimaginable. Frankly, I had no idea how his story will be playing out. He also had a certain bond with Venom, his best bud that I couldn't quite understand. Their relationship made me question their sexuality. I won't divulge that little information , but I can tell you that they are very close and Ven is the only one who truly knows him. I was curious on how this author was going to break this tough guy down to actually have him fall for any female.
I am happy to say that Wick's past was not as dark as I expected. I take that back, his past was dark, but Ms. Callahan didn't go into specific details , so readers didn't have to experience any of the sufferings. But she does let her readers know who Wick really is.
Wick is fierce, brave, feared , and he is respected among his comrades. What I didn't expect is that Wick, the scary dangerous grump that I know was nothing but a sweetheart. After meeting Jamison, he was nothing but mush. It was fascinating that this woman can have such power over Wick. The things Jamison did or say that made Wick smile just melted my heart.
Jamison on the other hand, was quite the opposite. She is this fragile woman who is trying her damnedest to be tough. Her decisions show's she is quite strong, but no, she is not a kick ass heroine. But that's okay because Wick is there to take care of her. I think that was the draw, Wick had that need to save her. I really enjoyed their love story.
Ms. Callahan of course didn't exclude the action and suspense that I have come to expect in this series. The warfare between the Razorbacks and Nightfury continues. Now the Razarbacks are attempting bigger and better ways to destroy humanity along with the Nightfury pack. With that said, you know that there are some battle scenes that are worth reading. There is a bit of build up for Forge which I'm hoping it's because his book is up next.
Benjamin L Darcie was outstanding with the delivery of the story
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Both have past lives filled with pain but find each other. The sister of a anglo female that mated one of the other dragons. Is connected to Wick whom has emotional damage from a cruel past. JJ (female) was in jail for 5 years for murder. Killing an abusing boyfriend. She is half native american but look white. Her sister has another father but seems have had a better life than jj despite growing up together. There is sub plots of the razor back and other stuff but this book is similiar to the other 3 books.. OK read/listen
Sr Exec-High travel & no time to read. Love UF PNR with strong character develpoment & supernaturals living among us. own nearly 900 titles
I was eagerly awaiting JJ's story and I was left wanting. Wick gets over his issues with no issue at all. The impending doom with the dragon kind politics doesn't get resolved completely. The girl in this serious always seems to need protection and can't take care of her self. It's become formulaic and predictable. I thought these tow would be discovering tha elves and at least be tested but it was Incredibly dull and boring . Really don't think I can go on with the series.
I have been following this series for some time and I'm so excited that fury of obsession is now out I went back to read all the other books and still love this series now I'm ready for the new one. Please keep them coming
If I had to pick a favorite among the Night Furies it would have to be Wick. Damaged in way no one knew about until now. As ever the book is packed full of drama, action, intrigue, and a whole lot of mmm, mmm, mmm good. Well I'm off to get the next book.
Over all, this was a good story but I have to admit that I skimmed a LOT of it, as I did with all of them.
I loved all the characters, Wick, J.J, Venom, Mac, Bastian, Rikar, Sloan, and all their women. But, there was soooo much filler.
From the very beginning of the book there was a plan to go get JJ from the hospital, that's how chapter 1 started and it took all the way to (about) page 120 before they ever got her. There was so much BS going on! Going to the club to find a woman for energy, 20 or 30 pages of that nonsense. Then Wick going outside all loopy, another 15 or so pages, then at the hospital it took another 30 or so pages before Wick ever touched her. I must have skimmed about 75 to 100 pages and that's really not good. I don't mind a little filler, that kind of goes with all books, but there was really no reason for this book to have over 400 pages and 12 and a half hours of (not so much) listening pleasure. I did like this group of dragon/men but I just can't see myself reading anymore from the author. And, if it's the publisher telling her they want 400 pages plus it's time to get a new publisher.
As to the narrator: Mr. Darcie did a fine job. He's still a little iffy when it comes to the women's voices but he does try his best and that's all I can ask.
All of it
I loved this series, every last one! I want more Dragonfury novels. Reader does good!
I am NOT a writer so my reviews don't have as much as other people's review, but I LOVED this series, every word. I have listened to this book twice! Throughly enjoyed this book and the reader!
