Publisher's Summary

Inferno is the explosive, most anticipated final book in Donna Grant's Dark Kings series featuring Con, the King of the Dragon Kings!

I knew what I wanted. And nothing was going to stop me.

King of Dragon Kings. Driven, ruthless, shrewd. The weight of survival for Constantine and his brethren has pushed him to set aside his own yearnings - for now. He's the most powerful of all Dragon Kings, and Con will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who dares to threaten his existence. 

For years, Con has hidden his pain - his desperation - for there is one smoldering beauty that he craves above all else, even if he feels he doesn't deserve her. However, his enemies are at every corner. There is no one left to trust. But none of that matters anymore: There is only one thing that Con wants. With this one woman by his side, he can fight for the freedom of his fellow men-in-arms. All Con has to do is get her to surrender her heart...and be his for all time. 

Contains mature themes.

It had the potential to be a really good story

******Spoilers in this review****

Each individual book in the series seemed like a repeat of each other. Dragon guy sees girl, explanation of how lonely the chick is, insta luv, long drawn out magic/dragon/warrior/Druid/fae history story, explanation of being a mate, some kind of battle, sprinkle in a sex scene or two in the mix, the end. Rinse and repeat 25+ times with different names, eye, and scale colors. (SN: Celadon and Jade are pretty much the same color 🤷🏽‍♀️) There are small deviation, but pretty much the same story on repeat for 17+ books and novellas.

The best part of the whole series to me were the interactions between Rhi and Con and their interactions with everyone else. Their story was super interesting even when it was cliche at times. It was obvious they were mates but I liked the mystery of it not being officially confirmed. The snippets of them are what made me read/skim the other twenty something books and Novellas and had me excited for this book.

******** Spoilers past this point**********

Fast ward to yesterday, :-/..... if my expectation had been low I would’ve had the same meh 😕 reaction. But I was actually looking forward to this book. I just knew that because Rhi and Con already knew each other and their history, the rinse and repeat storyline wouldn’t be use in this book. I was hoping that I wouldn’t be reading explanations and back stories that were told ad nauseum. Well, I guessed wrong.

The thing that I initially liked about Con was that he was a man a few words, stoic, rigid, hard on the outside and a softy and super caring in the inside. Rhi was the wild child opposite of Con except she was just as caring and loving of the overall group. Based on the ending of book 17, I was excited to see how Con broke down after holding everything together for so long and how (my hope) Rhi or the other kings were going to save ad restore him since he always stepped in to saved everyone else even when he thought it was a bad idea. That’s not why I got. Instead, Con was turn into a love sick puppy who spilled his guts about his lost love to anyone who would listen. Rhi’s character was what I expected, she was hurt and after years of rejection she understandably didn’t want to deal with him. Con’s didn’t fit the persona that was built up over 17+ books. He was a over ripe emotional banana. He was snappy, sappy, and seemed like he was always on the verge of tears. After all this time he suddenly had a quick meltdown and realized Rhi was the one for him and he would do anything to get her back.....😒

Then all of the loose story lines that had to be tied.... double 🤦🏽‍♀️. Melisse, was an obvious twist but a quick random blurb. What made her sooooo dangerous???? Con went from not knowing anything about the weapon for centuries to knowing everything about her while he was supposed to be going through this war and mental breakdown. Then Henry made absolutely noooooo sense to her story line. His connection to her was not explained enough for it to make sense. Con was supposed to be super smart and look at every situation from multiple angles but he never did that with the one thing/person that could easily kill all the dragons??? He just did as he was told????

Morann was killed by the random last minute addition Rona? Ooooookaaaay. I just knew Rona was Usaeil. She was just too random. As for Morann, She just randomly walked out of her prison/room through a whole bunch of trackers. All of a sudden the trackers don’t attack on sight. They are rational and don’t attack her cause they are.....all of a sudden scared of her? Coran went from vaguely hearing about Morann to knowing everything she did millions of years ago and knowing that she was going g to die at that moment.

Rhi being Usaeil’s daughter. Why? What was the purpose. I wasn’t bothered by the Con sleeping with mom and daughter thing. He didn’t know and Shit happens. I just didn’t see why it was necessary. It was bad enough that he knowingly slept with his ex supposed love of his life’s friend and mentor. Why make her Rhi’s mom too? That was pointless.

Con and Rhi having twins and the dragons being safe in another realm. I don’t understand why Erith took them. She said she could only save one, but there was two babies? Then she said she knew Rhi could heal herself, so again why take the babies? She never told them about the twins or at least let Con know that the other dragons are safe. She is the worst kind of “friend”. I would of rather DG let V find that the dragons were fine and safe than to let it be known that Erith knew the WHOLE time and watched him suffer under that unknown. She knew that was one of the biggest weights on Con’s shoulders and never told him. Plus she knew they all wanted families and resign to the fact that they probably would ever have a kid and she kept them at from home too???? Come on 🤦🏽‍♀️

Over all the book was meh... my expectations were just way to high given the series.

Con’s book is finally here and it was amazing!!

So I just finished Inferno and I couldn’t wait another minute to write this review. All I can say is wow!!! This was the most anticipated book of the year for me and all I can say is that it blew me away. I’m not sure if it could have made it any better. As a long time fan of the Dark Universe, it was the perfect ending, and new beginning. I always hoped that Con and Rhi would end up together but all of the surprise along the left me in awe. Bravo!!!

And as always it would be the Dark Universe with out Anthony Ferguson. He has brought these characters to life for so many years. If you were a fan of paranormal books go out and buy this book right now.

I need more!

This book answered so many questions I had about the dragon kings. Now I NEED to find out about Henry, the other dragons, and don’t forget about the few non-mated dragons! I just need more! Please just write more!

I thought it did a great job wrapping up

For those of you who have read the series, you know that there are multiple intertwining story lines. I thought this book did a great job of wrapping them all up and tying them together. I love it and the whole series.

Amazing

I have enjoyed all your books. This one was one that I just hated to end. But know there will be more to come makes me always come back to your books. Thank you for all you do. I thought hearing my name in one of your books was amazing,(Bernadette) but know Con was back with his love was also Amazing.

Wow, what an ending to this series, but a cliffhanger too

This was a very happy/sad story, it was a mixture but mostly happy. There were so many startling events & truths unearthed. However, the epilogue was a shocking cliffhanger involving several. I assume this is where her next series picks up. I really wished I hadn’t heard it & stopped. It kind of pisses me off, but the main book was a five so I didn’t deduct. Great narration by Antony Ferguson.

Was like being on a literary rollercoaster ride!

Such a fan of the Dark World series and with the expectation of this final story of this arc being so high, there's always the fear of being disappointed. That's certainly didn't happen here, several parts left me gasping out loud.. Thanks for the ride can't wait for the next spin-off series!

Oh Con!


Trying to type a review on my phone is terrible. I will just say this was a great addition to the series i enjoyed it so much. Lots of climaxes and revelations and then hints of more drama to come. I rarely giver five stars. This one gave me all the feels. Bravo Ms Grant.
