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.

I really liked the idea with the half dragons, I thought that rather original, but unfortunately I was disappointed. The characters were very briefly described and I couldn't really connect with them or the story. The narration was ok though.
If you read Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series, then you will recognize the similarity in this book. Instead of Vampires, we have Dragon half breeds. The story tended for drag along for the first half of the book, then by three fourths through, it sparked my interest. Unfortunately, there is no ending to this book, as the story is left in the air, for the next installment to build upon. I doubt that I will read the next book, as the story is an old concept that I truly love in the writings of Lara Adrian, and J R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. I will just wait for those sequels.
If you like JR Ward's BDB series then you will like this one. The series are so similar but I did enjoy the book. Gives me something to listen to while I wait on Lover Reborn. The narrator was pretty good too.
Hot , must have
it keep me wanting more i stay up all night
i love how he gave all then all the own personality
I did and i did
Maybe if her style matures a bit. Perhaps I'm just too old fashioned.
Horrible underdevelopment of characters and their relationships.
Not bad except for Sloan... Nerdy white guy voice for that one doesn't seem to fit.
The writing style of the author is distracting to say the least. Phrases like pleasure train, hunksville, getting up in someone' grill, consistent use of
I really did not expect this to be as good as it was. I was captivated to the end of the book. it was a well written story and well read. I really enjoyed it!!!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was good. Nothing super surprising though. If you are use to reading romantic fantasy novel, then this one will fall right in your library nicely. There are 3 books in this series. I think I am going to stop at this one. Basically a dragon half human warrior finds his mate. Basic romantic fantasy novel setup here. Nothing to wow gripping about the story.
Darcie actually did a good job. I am not big on male narrators, but Darcie did well.
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
I've come into this series a bit late having just found it and, as I love anything 'Shifter' I thought I'd give it a try (despite the mixed reviews) and I was very happy I did.
Firstly, let me start by saying I didn't like the basis of the story:- a Dagon-shifter finding a high energy woman to impregnate and bear him a child then die - not an endearing quality you want from your hero. But thankfully Bastian, the Leader of the Nightfury Clan, realised this was wrong and regretted his actions towards Myst albeit a little too late and happily made amends.... with some surprising consequences.
However, I loved the Dragon-shifter world - a brotherhood made up of lots of handsome, leather clad badass Alpha types wearing shit kickers together with all the snappy quick dialogue and funny banter that went with it and I guess that's where the similarities between Ward's brilliant, awesome and, IMHO cannot be beaten, BDB can be found. But set that series aside as this is a good and worthy listen and there's plenty of action, passion, sex, romance and conflicts between the Nightfury Clan (good Dragons) and the hated Razorback Clan (evil Dragons with a hate and kill all the Humans, agenda).
The product placement peed me off a bit as did the WTF question when the heroine just drove off from the Lair which was supposed to be in a cliff and magically protected with an impenetrable force field around it? However, I overlooked these flaws because of the enjoyment factor I got from the rest of the action-packed story.
Worth a credit? I would have been happy if I'd spent a credit on this but at under $10 for a 12 hour listen I saved my credit for a more costly listen and so I just bought it - and don't regret it.
I've been reading about vampire, vampires, vampires in this genre and here is a book about dragons. It's a nice change.
In the beginning, where Mist's friend lay dying.
He brings the story to life. That's why I enjoy audiobooks so much. The narrator can create the voices and accents better than I can in my head.
It had a bit of predictability to it, but it was still an interesting start to a series.
