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.

Really enjoyed it, hard to put down. plan on following the entire series. I found myself choreographing scenes for a movie, imagining what it might look like even music lol.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Lead female character (anglo) is a Nurse practitioner that befriends prego single mom. But, mom is found dying. Nurse/friend saves baby. The baby was fathered by a DRAGON kind (half human half dragon) There are good dragons & bad dragons. The good try to protect humans. Bad hates humans. BOTH NEED human females to breed & suck energy from. So the series starts with getting to know the characters of the two packs. Interesting fight scenes. Good start
Awesome story great narrator. I know some complained not enough romance but I think it was quality not quantity. I prefer a good story over massive sex scenes too. So this was perfect. Only thing I would change is ending I would have revealed some of the questions not answered. I'm hoping each book builds on the last even though they have different views of the characters.
I felt like something was missing from the book. There were a lot of instances were Myst forgot about the baby. Like when she freaked and ran away. I think everyone forgot about the baby then. And at the end, the only mention of the baby was from its father and never again. I would like to know where they do that at.
Book has a good premise but good grief it goes in so many circles that after awhile you want to scream. It just kept going and after hanging in there the ending is almost open ended and you either start the second book hoping to get the finish you wish was in the first book or you give up. Disappointed for sure!
"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".
"What a wild ride!"
Loved every minute of it! To tell you the truth, when the heroine was in danger I literally had to force my muscles to relax because I'd suddenly notice that I was totally tense like things were happening to me! More Dragon furyv please!
Very descriptive, and emotive story and plot, excellent narrator - voice smooth as silk yet hard as nails - enjoyed every minute
"Poor imitation of J.R Ward's Black Dagger series"
I don't know if this series was released before or after the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward, so I have to try not to be too unkind. Either this came first and J.R Ward stole the concept and produced a far superior version. Or this series came after and is just a really poor attempt to jump on the bandwagon. Just simply awful.
"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
