Publisher's Summary

Mercy Reynolds is a reporter in the San Francisco Bay area, but she's also more - and less - than human. Half woman, half air dragon, she’s a "draman" - unable to shift shape but still able to unleash fiery energy.

Now something will put her powers to the test. Mercy's friend Rainey has enlisted her help to solve her sister's murder. Then a horrible accident claims Rainey's life, leaving Mercy only five days to find the killer: If Mercy fails, according to dragon law, Rainey's soul will be doomed to roam the earth for eternity. But how can Mercy help when she herself is a target? With nowhere else to turn, she must join forces with a sexy stranger - the mysterious man they call "Muerte", or death itself, who's as irresistible as he is treacherous. But can even Death keep Mercy alive for long enough to find her answers?

Disappointed no more books in this Series

I bought this audiobook because Audible was having a sale on books narrated by Cassandra Campbell. I loved the first one "Destiny Kills" and wanted to listen to something else written by Keri Arthur and narrated by Cassandra Campbell. It was a good start for me on both the author and narrator. I hadn't read or listened to either. So thrilled when both books turned out to be fantastic. Love the stories Keri creates and the wonderful characters. Loved the way Cassandra narrated this book. She has such a talent with her voice. She can portray surprise, excitement, anger and love. As Keri writes each of these expressions in her story. An all around excellent book. Looking forward to listening to Cassandra read more books and to listen to more of Keri's stories.

Great Story

I really enjoyed this book. Non stop action. Didn't drag out the story, wasn't stagnant at all. Language was crisp and clear. Merci was a kick ass draman (half-human, half dragon) who teamed up with a dragon to find out who was killing off the draman communities. Since I love stories with dragons in them, I am hoping the next story introduces more about the dragon cliques and how they really work. However, I have one pet peeve, why does the male hero always tell the female to "stay here." ( out of harms way, you can't join in the fight)?? LOL. Knowing that this will only infuriate the female and have her follow anyway? Oh well makes for good story telling, but would love to see those macho males, take into consideration that females are not helpless, and we don't fight/play the way males do. ::wink::

Enjoyable but differnt for this author

Any additional comments?

I didn’t realize this was book 2 in a series when I purchased it; yet it had no bearing on the story, it is fine as a standalone novel. 

The story and mythos created was interesting but had me confused.  They are dragon shifters, or half dragon/half human. Yet they use fire against each other as a weapon.  That didn’t makes sense to me.  One minute a dragon is revealing in the heat and the next it's injuring him, that just didn’t jive.  There were some other inconsistencies in my mind; however I am only comparing them to other dragon shifter stories so really, what does it matter?  But I really enjoyed the overall story and was able to immerse myself in the audiobook, Campbell is a fantastic narrator. 

The chemistry between Mercy and Damon was hot. I was a bit disappointed when I realized that this was going to be a single novel, not an Urban Fantasy with Mercy and Damon being the continuing characters.  I am use to an Author writing Urban Fantasy so this was something new.  Since I haven’t read/listened to book one. I am not sure if there is a bigger underlying theme to this series, other than dragon shifters, but Mercy Burns was a great paranormal romance and extremely enjoyable....Sara
