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.
Myst loves her life in the human world, but Bastian has captured her heart in an instant of electric connection. But Bastian and his warriors are in the middle of a deadly battle with the Razorback dragon-shifters, intent on killing every Nightfury clan member - and the humans they protect - the fate of their world and ours hangs in the balance. An extraordinary blend of action, fantasy, and steamy romance, Fury of Fire brings to life a dangerous new world intertwined with the survival of humanity, all while exploring the meaning of honor and the nature of true love.

For someone who hasn't read books by kresley cole jr ward alyssa day etc becausee this seems like a beginners book
The plot was unique
Let down at the ending it just dropped off
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Yes and I have. I have never really been intertested in dragon stories but this book has really captured my interest. I can't wait until I read the other books in the series. Strong lead male characters and a good story line.
I'm enjoying listening to Benjamin reading of the book. He add alot of emtional to all the characters. This is my first time listening to him and I will continue to seek book read by him. Plus his voice is delicious.
Coreene has done an excellent job of introducing a series with just the right amout of mystery to keep you reading, humor to keep it entertaining and romance to keep you longing for more.
Good book, but the narrator is awful. All of the characters sound like gay men, no matter who he is speaking. I find this very distracting when trying to listen to a book where the male characters are supposed to be heterosexual alpha in nature. Please find someone new for the fourth book in the series.
long and well written, few to no insufferable moments
read male parts well, and as a male with a deep voice read the female parts decently
I'd suggest it to anyone who likes romance, dragons, surprises, and tinges of broken science
I do like kick butt chick vampire slayers
I love this genre and have read many, many books along the same lines, but this was awful. It could not work out if it was fantasy, erotic or romatic. Full of cringe worthy scenes.
Please do not waste your time or money. Wish I had not
I"m a audible addict. My eyes have gotten really bad so I really hadn't read much in the last 10 years until I discoverd books on CD and Audible. Now I'm a fiend. Other than audio books I enjoy my family, work and dabbling on the computer.
I really enjoyed the book and couldn't wait for the next one to come along. The narrator is excellent as well. You know it's good when you can't stand to turn it off.
What a Surprise!
The Dragons changing and then the battles. Wow! Not to mention the bonding.
The whole book was my favorite. The narrator was especially important due to tone, and having the ability to make the book come to life.
I would listen to this book in one sitting.
Coreene Callahan and Benjamin L. Darcie brought this book to life. I have the second book. Now, Audible.com, where is the 3rd book. I'm waiting! Think you for such a great book.
Let's face it, this book is somewhat formula paranormal romance there is enough deviation from the formula to make it interesting. Not all the bad guys are truly evil and the good guy isn't perfectly good. Granted there are not as many dragon based books as there are vampire or traditional Werewolf books out there, I believe this book put a decent enough amount of twists to make it fresh. That's not to say you won't see the typical verbiage found in the PNR books, but honestly how many different ways can you describe two people getting close and having sex?
Towards the beginning of the book, our heroine has to do something that most of us would probably think twice about, and she has to deal with the consequences throughout the book. Granted she is a nurse, but even those in the medical field are people and are impacted by the lives of their patients.
No, this is the first book with this narrator. I found his voice a little better than most. He is eloquent in his presentation and annunciation to make the performance easy to follow. He is not as good as Jim Dale (Harry Potter narrator) at the voices, but few people are. However, that being said his presentation is enjoyable enough I'd listen to other books he has narrated.
There were parts where I needed to get to a decent enough stopping point, so it did keep my interest enough to anticipate what would happen next. But I didn't feel compelled to finish it in one sitting. I took me four.
One thing I liked about this book, was the fact that I felt the author had a decent enough grasp of the English language she didn't feel compelled to pull out a thesaurus to add obscure or forgotten language. I believe most people listening to this will find the book easy to follow without having to get side tracked by phrases or words from previous bygone eras. Unless I'm reading a book staged in the 17th century or earlier, or is referenced from earlier eras, I hate it when the author throws in verbs or adjectives we haven't used in more than 100 years. It makes the story come off as pretentious.
I love this series so far. I was looking for something to fill in between DoW books. This fit well. I love stories with danger, mystery and lots of plot so this one fit in well. So here's the short version, if you like hard edged men with hearts of gold, bad guys that die in a pile of ash and really steamy seduction then you will love this series!
Its different for me to hear the story from a man's voice but that is the POV the story is written in. Most of the ones I've listened to have been narrated by women, especially the ones with steamy scenes like the ones in this book. But when a deep, purring male voice is needed Mr. Darcie does the job nicely. On the plot front there are plenty of characters to work with for lead male in the coming books. Also, the story lends to a fairly long series. I read the second book in the series on my Kindle and its amazing too. I am going to get Fury of Ice on audio too so I re-listen as many times as I want until the third story comes out. LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!
As others have said there are similarities to BDB, but I don't see that as a negative. I know I like that sort of story so I read similar ones. It was an easy listen and I'll buy the rest of the series.
