New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.
With Mac, her safety from Ivar and the perils of the human world is assured, but still she is left with a terrible choice: forsake the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve and reclaim the life she loves, or abandon the man who now holds her heart.

Love to read!
I really wanted to be able to give this book 5 stars!! Most of the book I kept thinking what a good book this was, possibly better than the first one in the series (my favorite so far). However, there were a few things that really detracted from it.
The main thing was that the climax was extremely disappointing. There was very little build up to it and it was very brief. It could have served as an event to build up the tension and excitement to a bigger and better ending.
The book mostly focused on the two main characters in a "do I love him/her" tug of war. There were other multiple minor story lines introduced in other characters that never went ANYWHERE. I understand they were trying to set up future books, but it was a little overkill. I wish Callahan had chosen 1 or 2 to develop more and actually go somewhere with them.
What made the book really good was the chemistry between the two main characters. I could have continued to listen to more about them and hope Callahan picks up their story in future books.
Yes. I liked both of the other Dragonfury books, but I could not finish this one.
The story itself would take less than 2 hours if the main characters weren't thinking about sex, their relationship, or their attraction to each other ALL THE TIME.. It was totally boring and repetitive..
If I have to pick one, I'd say Mac.
This is my first review, and I had to write it because this is the most repetitive, boring book I have ever listened to from an author I previously enjoyed.
What a great series - great repoire between characters - plots and subplots are interesting and provide some twists to the storyline.
I can't wait for the next one, then the next etc. Please keep them coming.

I had high hopes when I downloaded this book. It was the first one of this series that I got because I was desperate for something to listen to. If I hadn't already read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series I might have loved it and sped through all the effusive detail jabber. Not that this is a bad book altogether, but I can pretty much name every book that ever inspired the author just by listening to this one. There just far to many parallel references to Black Dagger Brotherhood and one backward nod to a Gone With the Wind line that just rubbed me the wrong way.
The Narrator was great. The character speaking with a east coast accent trying to use Gaelic endearments didn't work for the character.
Since I haven't read the first two books in the series, If I were the editor having already read BDB I would have sent it back to her and had her change every similar reference to this other series. Pretty much every aspect of the book is a direct reflection of the Brothers in Dragon form right down to referring to themselves as "Males" What they wear and how they characters describe themselves, how the characters interact with each other, The Dragons feed off their Females same as the Brothers, it's just energy this time instead of blood.
Honestly I am surprised this wasn't caught sooner.
I'll keep them to myself thanks.
Another looong story but it was good. I'am going to read the 4th book, Fury of Desire, but if there's anymore written I won't continue the series. The books are just too long and way too wordy. I skimmed a lot of pages getting past Mac's feelings for Tania, which were said over and over again in so many different ways, just to get back to the story. The bad guys, Ivar, Rodin, Hamersveld, are really bad, Rodin especially, ewww.
I'm not sure about Nian. One minute I think he's bad then I'm not so sure.
I'm almost positive there will be books on Gage and Haider and Sloan and Daimler and.... but not for me. If the author would write her books without so much BS I would read everything she has but she just writes too much unnecessary stuff. For instance, another author might write that "she got undressed and got in the shower." CC will write, "she bent over and untied her shoes. Took them off. She unzipped her jeans and slid them down her long legs. She slowly pulled her shirt over her head. She unhooked her bra, took it off and walked into the shower." Really? She writes sooo many crazy descriptions of crap going on. You could take 100 pages from this book and not miss a thing. It was a really good story but you have to skim too much just to find it.
As to the narrator: I guess I've gotten used to him because it hasn't been so bad. Male narrators just cannot do women's voices worth a darn but at least Mr. Darcie tries and it has become bearable. I would listen to him again. The guys just take some getting used to.
Sr Exec-High travel & no time to read. Love UF PNR with strong character develpoment & supernaturals living among us. own nearly 900 titles
I enjoy the idea of dragon kind. The story is quick and gives a glimpse into the seedy side of their world. The relationship evolved too quickly and for a strong woman she in constantly on the verge of tears. Liked the prison angle which seems to be leading to the next book. I don't get pulled into the universe like I do with the brotherhood series but it's a good filler while Ward Pens her next novel.
Okay, let's start with the Narration - FABULOUS. This man as Mac's voice down pat. So what I want to hear and is spot on. I can give a little on the female voices cause the guys voices are dead on. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
The story. Mac's story has been one I've been waiting for (okay, I want all the guys since I've fallen in love with them in Book 1) and I wasn't disappointed. I loved how it introduced his father and the story with him and Tania is just beautiful. I love that her attitude is epic and doesn't fail. I also loved the hidden story line with her sister and I can't wait to see how that plays out.
Now, yes....I will say that - aside from our lovely cop in book 2, the female leads suffer from a bit of victim-itise BUT I was expecting that in this book considering that Tania is suppose to be Myst's best friend, who yes by the way - I still loathe. I really have high hopes for the next female leads in the future books.
If you've been debating on this series, I'd say go for it. Couple of things to keep in mind:
1. Female leads in Book 1 & Book 2 - need to get smacked and will drive you insane. Focus on the boys..they'll make up for it.
2. There is no time gaps in her book endings and start ups. Where one book ends, the next picks right up. It's nice.
3. The world of the dragons can be a little off at times but eventually it evens out and is coming together nicely.
4. Expecting BDB? Not gonna find it here. Dragons. No Vamps. Not a one to be found. Leave your BDB comparison's at the door, honestly.
Overall I was really happy with the book and I'm highly anticipating Book 4.
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...
The endings are still a little abrupt but they end with the fact that the story will pick up where it left off in the next book. It gets a little mushy silly in the love and sex department but it has a good story and I can't wait for the next one. I like the fact that it has so much humor and comradery.
