Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.
Now a guest of the Nightfury clan, Angela regains her strength as her rescuer, Rikar, the last living frost dragon, gradually breaks down her mistrust. Surrendering to her desire for Rikar, but still uncertain of her feelings, Angela goes against his wishes and agrees to be used as bait to lure Lothair into the open. As the battle commences, the true struggle comes from within: Will Angela return home to the life she loves, or forsake it all to be with Rikar?

I know many think this series is a rip-off of the Black Daggar Brotherhood, which I'm completely devoted to, but I'm really starting to like it for what it is. Yes, there are some similarities in the speaking style and the branding of products, but the stories are completely different. There are enough differences to make listening worthwhile. I really like how both characters are quickly drawn together. I really get bored with the typical romance novels that keep the hero or heroine fighting until the end before finally giving in to what they both want. This series focuses more on the external struggles while allowing the couples to quickly accept their need to be together. The bad guys are really bad and the good guys are really good. The author does a great job of connecting you with each character. Overall I highly recommend giving this series a chance and look forward to what the author has in store for all the other Night Fury members.
I LOVED this book, even more so than the first one in the series. Cause this I was able to love both the male AND female lead! The story was awesome. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED how it picked up literally right where the first book ends. We got glimpses of how bad ass Angela was in the first book and I KNEW she would be an awesome female lead and was not disappointed.
Coreene gives us teasers at what I think one of the next pairing will be (MMMM MMMM MAC!!) I've officially become a BIG fan of Forge! And am I the only one that is hoping for a Venom/Wick pairing?!?!?!!? I'm hoping that Coreene will give us more info and yes a book on Sloane cause he sounds funny and awesome and fabulous.
Again, let me restate....people that compare this to BDB don't know what they are talking about. BDB isn't the end all, be all that people go on about. I loved Dragonfury and I can't WAIT for book 3.
OH and....the narrator: Benjamin Darcie.......Love him. AWESOME CHOICE!
I am Who I am; and you are Who you are...so lets leave it at that.
The first book of this series I enjoyed. I thought it was a little different. It takes dragon lore in a different direction. The books are tied to one another. So if you want to find a new series to look forward and will be long running then this the series for you.
It has everything a romance needs. Bad guys, hot guys, naughty parts, fights, tough chicks, bad vs good and so on...
The author gives hints of future or possible books. It addicting so watch out.
I hope you enjoy and agree :0)
This is the second title in Callahan's Dragonfury series. If you are a J. R. Ward fan, and read the first title, you may have been ready to stand on the rooftops and scream "PLAGARISM!" Ms. Callahan's first attempt was wrought with style, plot and character development that was not simply reminiscent of J. R. Ward, it was an almost exact replica-aside from a very interesting story line.
This title; however, shows that Ms. Callahan may just well have what it takes to develop her OWN world, characters, etc. It isn't 100% purged of all things 'Wardian' but it's getting there and the story line is very good! I do recommend making your way through the first title, if you have not already, so that you begin to learn about the characters. If you haven't read any J. R. Ward, it won't bother you in the least and you'll likely enjoy the title far more than those of us who would give just about anything to have our own hellren!
I'm, admittedly, very critical of the narration of audio books. It is, after all, the main component of why many of us listen, as opposed to or in addition to reading books. The narrator for this title isn't bad; however, his performance isn't what it could be. I tend to blame a lack of direction or editing for the majority of the issues I have with narration. He tends to make his female voices come across a bit whimpering at times, lessening the strength of the character. The words, thoughts and actions of the character don't match the tone of voice and it lends to making the character come across as weak. Also, he has this habit of isolating the word "and" that is so bloody annoying that it drives me crazy. It can't be that the author writes "and" that much more than other authors. I wish that we had the ability to reply to reviews with Audible because I would love to know if anyone else finds this particular habit of the narrator to drive them to distraction!
All in all, I am pleased that I continued the series in spite of my initial issues with the first novel. I would recommend this title 'AND' even though I've already read the next book 'AND' will be reviewing it shortly, I can already say that I look forward to her future world development.
After having enjoyed the first installment in this series, "Fury of Fire", I was looking forward to seeing what would happen to the characters in this, the second 'episode'. Actually, it turned out to be a whole lot of 'not so much'. If you like lots of hot descriptions of sex, you won't go wrong with this one. If you like a story with some meat, pass this one by.
As expected, it was a lead in to another book in the series.
He does well with male and female voices; I could always tell who was who in the story as he read.
See my initial comments.
Uninspiring. The relationship between the hero and heroine didn't have chemistry. Her writing with slang trying to mimic Black Dagger Brotherhood was just annoying and painful.She also has some similarities to the Lara Adrian series Midnight Breed.
I rather liked the first book -thought it a good mindless adventure. This book- I couldn't get through the first part.Didn't even finish listening to it.
Probably not. I didn't like her writing style.
I would have her rewrite it. Characters are all monotone and 2 dimensional. Dialog- unbelievable and uninteresting
A thick lawn, running water, and a tree to sit under. That's close to heaven!
"Katey Bar the Door!" There's adventure, humor and romance..
Angela Keene because she refused to stop fighting for her freedom whan she was captured and still maintained enough steel to allow herself to except a new partner into her life.
This is the seconed book I've listened to with Mr. Darcie perforning. As always I enjoy the way he make the characters come alive while holding the readers interest.
I would have loved to listen to this book all in one sitting because it keeps you rivited to the story but its told with such zest, you don't mind returning as soon as you can.
I am retired and have started a small business from my home. I love every minute of my audible books. I can work and listen to a book at same time. I got a Kindle Fire for christmas and it has been ON ever scince. Now I just downloaded my library to my iphone....Its just great!
I would recommend this series to everyone. I love that they treat the woman with high regards. And that meridian is something else.
I love the series because the males are all big and tall are on a mission to protect women. In the process of protecting they find their mates. It included current events.
I love, love love them all but fury of seduction best because Mac turned into a dragon as an adult and is able to utilize his human experiences.
This series made me laugh hard and out loud.
My only regret is that it is only 3 b. What about the other guys. Give more..PLEASE! !!
A story line that didn't bounce around so much you get whiplash. This book was a slight improvement over Book 1 in the series. But there is way too much description of inconsequential things and not enough description of the stuff that matter. To take up almost 5 min describing a chair than glance over in less than a minute of a moment that is suppose to be when the main characters fall in love....um hello. I could have done without knowing a detailed description of a chair.
It doesn't. Just turns me off from this author.
The voices needed more variety. His voice for the two main character dragons sound like characters from Revenge of the Nerds. These are Dragon men. They should have deep sultry voice. Not squeeky nerdy voices. And everyone sounds the same. Not enough variety.
Sleepiness. I want to get through it, I don't like to leave books unfinished, but it's hard. So boring.
Focusing on one character plot and delving deeper into the emotional connection and love aspect of the relationship would be way better.
