I read the reviews about the similarities to the BDB and I really didn't find myself comparing the two. I love the BDB and consider myself an expert on the series. Sure there are the "mine" statements, references to the latest commercial products, and the brotherhood feel. I didn't find it any different than similar paranormal books I've read. Many are all about claiming their one true love, existing in today's world, and belonging to some group or another. I liked how the story moved quickly. The hero and heroine recognized early on that they wanted each other. Most of the angst was saved for the interim battles and the final showdown. I read these types of books for the happy endings and a possible setup for the next in a series. I got that with this one and will defintely read the next in the series.

This is a very unique view at dragons. I listened straight through the whole thing. I loved it and am disappointed the next book is not on audio yet. Ms. Callahan left plenty of room for the series to grow - and I want it all NOW.
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!
This debut novel is the beginning to many additional installments.
Bastian is one of the oldest of his kind; an all male race born of human females - dragon-shifters. As leader of the Nightfury dragon clan it is his duty to protect humankind. With their numbers declining he needs to set an example. With only 5 days until the Meridian's axis realign, he has less than a week to find a mate.
"...Be the first to commit, to have a son, to lose his female in child birth."
Myst Munroe, a nurse practitioner, just wants to check on her pregnant patient - Caroline Van Owen. She is still recovering from her mother, Dana's, murder. When she arrives at Caroline's house and discovers her lying in a pool of blood - the flashbacks begin. Her training kicks in and she works to save both mother and her unborn child. Soon Bastian and his first in command, Rikar, arrive dressed as EMS workers - the battle begins.
Bastian feels an immediate attraction to Myst; her energy is unlike anything he has experienced before. Seeing her distress, he feels a compelling need to take care of her. For Bastian, that is something that has never happen before - but it is the one thing that he can't seem to control. When Myst starts to recover from the shock she become desperate, he knows that she will need his help - even if she is reluctant to accept it. Before long, Bastian finds himself unable to maintain his control - he wants to claim Myst for his own.
This is an emotion packed book that will make you laugh and make you cry. Myst's plight comes right off the pages. Her confusion over her feelings for Bastian tears her.
The secondary characters enrich the story. It's a good thing that we will get 2 more installments this year
Benjamin L. Darcie was outstanding with the delivery of the story.
I cant believe that anyone would enjoy it.
The entire story was disappointing, I think the concept was good and it might have been a good read however the dialog was very similar to that of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It was almost like she was trying to be J.R. Ward..She failed miserably..
I am not extremely picky when it comes to books and even if i dislike a book i can usually finish it and ignore any annoyances.. I could not finish this book, I cringed a few times each chapter..There were just so many things wrong with the story and how it was written and the style that it was written in.
I Bought this book mostly because of the many reviews indicating that it was similar to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.. I found that it this book was majorly inferior to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, I feel mislead by all the reviews that said it was the dragon version of the series, and it was just the terrible rip off version.
The Narrator was somewhat okay, except at times his voice for the supporting male characters was just annoying and nasally. Also I'm not sure if it was just the way the story was written but there were an enormous amount of
All of them..
Do not waste you're money on this book, I surely regret it.
Yes I liked the book and the Narrater a very smooth flow between the players. I hope this is just a start to a serious
No WANT MORE!!!
He has good flow and makes it easy to follow who was speaking.
a kinship to the female.wanted here to flnd a way.
Excelant listen enjoyed the book cant wait for the next one
Fast! Exciting! Addictive!
When Mist was being interrogated by the police and could sense the dragons coming to get her.
No, but I thought he did a decent job with this story.
Not really. I just like the story line and how it was told. I am happy that it wasn't about vampires.
Love historical romances; smart, imperfect people who find love when they are not looking for it.
A writer this good should have a better vocabulary. Great story, main characters and supporting ones are deep and well developed. The story is compelling. Continual use of curse words is unimaginative and lazy on the part if the author. Cleaned up, this would be great book.
This series is about dragons and I must say it was written like JR Ward which is one of my favorite authors so how can I not love this series...
want to listen to your favorite authors again to cleanse your mind; listen to this.
NO NO NO...; i'll just stay away from this author
needs better story.
NONE OH wait i will never buy book 2 again if i don't like book 1
never written a review but this author is no author to me.I wanted to give this author a chance. I mean not everyone gets it on the first try. One hour into book two I had had enough. This book should never be placed anywhere near all the other good or great writers in this genre. there are people who enjoyed this? the worst part about this is that the "bones/foundation" to a great story were there. I may not know how to write books but please understand as a reader in this genre I will come across things that are similar in various books. As long as you have your own story, I’m game. PLEASE don’t take other people's works and torpedo them. Now I have to go back and listen to some or all the books from various authors just to purge my brain. I think I’ll start with the greatest victim of this murder, the black dagger brothers and work my way down. My 2nd problem - Parent /Christian or not; NO more blasphemy for me. The amount of it in these books is off the chart. you want to sound cool/trendy/ hip/ with it; try something else. and all the charators did it. which brings me to my 3rd problem. two people expressing themselves the same way is okay, but most if not all the males had the spelling bug even one of the women. they all curse the same.
"Good Narrator, Less than spectacular story"
Some pretty good ideas, but the heroine really got on my nerves and the main male character Bastian was a bit flat.
For Dragon romance I much prefer G.A. Aiken's novels. Especially "About A Dragon".
"Super sexy voiced narrator"
Yes because the narrator does it justice and give the char rotors good voices not completely silly ones
Most me memorable would be for me the car grab
Just the way he says "belmeia"
When Mist was trying to escape the dragon layer
This book was proof of how a good narrator can keep a good book a winner, too many times had a decent book been ruined by a poor one.
"A Fantastic Paranormal Erotic Romance!"
I love paranormal romances with shifters (either werewolves or dragons), and when I first heard about this book and read the blurb, I became very interested indeed!
Bastian is an intriguing character. He is a typical alpha male - all testosterone and protectiveness towards his family. He is the head of the Nightfury clan, a group of half human/half dragons who protect the humans from another group of dragon shifters. He is uber sexy and knows how he affects the females! I must admit that he did get my heart pitta-pattering too!
Myst Munroe is a character that annoyed me at first. She is a midwife, who was in the right place at the wrong time. Being thrown into a dangerous world of dragons would terrify anyone, never mind Myst, but I found her character a bit weak and pathetic. However, as the story progressed, she finds her backbone and I began to like her a bit more.
I originally bought this book in the Kindle format, but I also got a copy in audio format when it went on sale. I have only recently started using audio books because of time issues - I can listen to the story whilst preparing dinner, or other household chores (NOT vacuuming though!). This story was a bit hard to get into at first, because I had to get used to listening to someone else reading a story. However, once I got into the story, I was totally hooked! There was only one issue I had with this story, and that was the excessive use of swear words. I don't mind the occasional ones, but the author has peppered the story with what I think were gratuitous and unnecessary f-bombs.
The story was a bit predictable, but there was a couple of interesting twists that kept me intrigued enough to keep listening. There is an amazing battle that is described in detail, and made me feel like I was actually there! There are also scenes of a sensual nature that are rather explicit, and made me wonder what the male narrator thought as he read the story! Oh, that reminds me, this book is told from mostly Bastian's point of view, but Myst has a say in the story too, which gave me an insight into her thoughts and feelings. A couple of other dragon-shifters also have their point of view shown. Rikar is Bastian's right hand man, and another sexy half-dragon! Ivar is a Razorback, and enemy of the Nightfuries. He is CREEPY! He made my skin crawl with his mad scientist lunacy! The end of the book finishes on a bit of a cliffhanger, and I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series.
Coreene Callahan has written a fast paced, sexy read that had me wishing these characters really existed!
Due to the use of bad language and the explicit scenes, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, I recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances or books with sexy dragon shifters! - Lynn Worton
Fabulous fantasy fiction
The setting was believable and the narrator is clear speaking. The individual characters were all discernable too!
He makes the characters more alive and really conveys each characters emotions well!
Absolutely I disliked having to pause it so I could get on with real life
