Vampire bounty hunter Morgan Bailey needs a break. A girl can handle only so much drama - and her latest assignments have definitely brought the drama. So when her boss mentions an assignment in London, Morgan jumps at the chance to get back to her roots and do what she does best: a good old-fashioned vamp hunt. She should have known better.
Once she crosses the pond, she encounters something she never expected to see: dragons. It seems they might not be so extinct after all. In Shéa MacLeod’s electrifying follow-up to Kissed by Darkness, it turns out Morgan’s one chance of preventing certain carnage if the dragons are unleashed is to confront the truth about her own past, and about the darkness growing inside of her.

Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
this one did not make me want to stay up all night like some others, but it was a good story. A little predictable, but I still liked the story so much and wanted to see what would happen next to the main character that I got the next book in the series. So I would say I was not board and it was a credit well spent.
Kissed by Fire starts off where Kissed by Darkness ended. I suggest readers listen to book 1 first. I like the characters: each with his or her own idiosyncrasies and personality. I like that the story is not predictable. Morgan continues to develop new talents. We learn more about both Morgan's and Kabita's interesting families.
Everything was well done and follows the "Kissed by" stories. I liked it and will continue to listen to the others. I also found it cheesy and not appropriate for a younger audience.
Narrator matches my mental image and is very good. My only problem is that despite a really solid story, and an okay undertone of a romance throughout they decided to throw in a 2 minute erotica which while fine in and of itself, it just felt forced for the shock factor and not really called for based on the rest of the story.
As far as UF goes, this series has been pretty weak. The heroine is a bit of a hot mess despite her ever growing super powers, the mythology is clugy at best, and the books are short on plot. I am not sure that I would say this book even has a complete plot. It sort of ties things up, but not really. Not to mention, that the tiny bit of resolution seems to come out of nowhere.
The relationships are about the same. The first book zoomed head long into romantic triangle and then a love connection, followed by a love disconnection. In this book, the heroine (view spoiler) And what the heck with Jack? (view spoiler)
Why should this surprise me? I mean, the mythology seems to constantly contradict itself. This power is inherited. Well, no its not, it is actually created. But, it is still kind of inherited after all. And, only dragons can do this one thing. Well, dragons, and demented, bigoted super villains. But it is okay, because soon Morgan will have every known special power in the universe. Thank goodness she doesn't have enough brain cells to rub together to make her a serious threat.
The only thing I'm disappointed in is that they aren't in audio form from 4 on. I have to work 12 hours a day so the only reading I get is audiobooks. But after this next book I'll make time before bed for a special treat. Awesome creative series!!
this book was well thought out with lots of action, magic and romance.
"Morgan kept her fire burning all night long, a new ability it seems."
