Publisher's Summary

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?

skip over the erotic parts

usually I love romance books, especially the hot & heavy ones, but the sex scenes here were completely rediculous! pretty much went: 'well I just got raped, but I love you so much let's have sex anyway... and oh yeah why don't you hold my wrists and be really pushy and agressive about it' so yeah, I couldn't get into the story at all because of this. I felt like the author not only has never had any type of sexual encounter to draw from ("blissing her out" WTF), but also doesn't understand relationships or vulnerability. unfortunately I already bought the whole series in a bundle, so since I paid for them I feel obligated to finish them, which is the only reason I didn't stop listening half way through. just a little FYI to the author, no guy EVER asks/begs NOT to get a BJ!

Disappointing

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The writer has a great story....but it is writen like a comic book or a immature writer...with way too may cliches and medtaphors..The mood of the story line was ruined by the lack of maturity in the verbiage.

Would you ever listen to anything by Coreene Callahan again?

This is my second book, unfortunately I bought it before I listen to the first one

Would you be willing to try another one of Benjamin L. Darcie’s performances?

No.....I do not like men narrators. They are not able to perform multiple characters or women very well.

What character would you cut from Fury of Ice?

none....I like the characters and the story line....just not the stupid filler works used, again its like listing to a comic book story line.

Juvenile dialog. Lame, silly, stupid analogies

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Dreamy eyed teen girls. However it's not really appropriate for them.

What was most disappointing about Coreene Callahan’s story?

I know that she can do better than this.

It has a very weak story line.

She latches on to words and "fill in the blank" phrases that she won't let go of, ie : shit kickers (boots), thank *uck, FUBAR, _-o-meter (as in kill-o-meter), _ville (as in "neck deep in holy shitsville") a sprinkle of _ with a dash of _, _ itis (as in Ricaritis). There are too many of these to even list and they are used repeatedly.

There is very little creative description in this story. She uses lame, stupid, and silly analogies to describe everything from feelings to environment and actions, and does it at great length. Even the thoughts behind a split second decision are blathered about at length.

There is not an ounce of clever or creative dialog. Ancient dragons, who should have a great deal of experience and command of language, speak as though a a teenage girl put the words in their mouths. By this I mean, it is a teenage girls version of what a tough guy sounds like. The women are supposed to be smart, clever, and tough. That certainly doesn't come across through any dialog.

What three words best describe Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance?

Mostly inappropriate voices

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fury of Ice?

I would have cut in down to two chapters. There, honestly, isn't much of a story to this. It is all pointless filler that doesn't advance the story at all. It is as if she got paid by the word.

I would cut out all of the incessant thoughts about how beautiful, clever, smart, tough, adorable, brave, blah blah blah the women are. And, how they must be protected, never fear, always feel safe, blah, blah, blah.

I would also cut the endless thoughts about how gorgeous the men are; and their self deprecating thoughts about how unworthy they are and how they must always prove themselves worthy of their female.

Any additional comments?

I read the first in the series and thought it had an interesting premise. Wasn't wild about it, but thought it showed promise. However the second book amped up all the things that I didn't like in the first, taking them to a level that is almost unbearable. Since I was stuck on an 8 hour flight, I bore it. If I had it do again, I would sleep.

Battle continues of good vs. bad dragon warriors

This series is on the order of the Midnight Breed and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. We have a group of good dragon warriors fighting against the other group of bad dragon warriors out to take over the world and kill all the humans. Of course along the way, the good dragons find the loves of their lives converting them to dragon ways, becoming part of the dragon commune. It all sounds cliche, which it is, but I enjoy a series like this now and then just for the fantasy, and a break from my usual crime thrillers. This being the second of the series, we are introduced to a couple new characters and the old ones are becoming familiar urging me to read the next installment to see if eventually good will triumph over evil.

If you liked the first...you'll like the second

This is the story of Frosty, a.k.a the ice dragon and his "she-cop" Angela. I wanted to listen to this story to see how it would unfold, and it did unfold a bit differently than I thought so that was good. What I didn't like were the inconsistencies and the gaps in story. For example, there is a phone call towards the end of the book and someone is suppose to stay where they are, but when the person shows up they are no longer there....why? Or how Angela was "hurt" but we aren't REALLY sure how she was "hurt"...also not a lot of smexing in this book. Normally I don't mind if an action packed book goes light on the smex...if there is a plot to carry it, this one really didn't.

I want to hear Mac's story in book 3 but I think I'll give up on this series at that point. They are nice filler books while waiting for the books I REALLY want to listen to, but in my opinion this series is WAY weaker than Black Dagger Brotherhood, and The Midnight Breed Series...kind of on par with the Lords of the Underworld series...cool world, not a total waste of time, but nothing gripping.

Oh, and the narrator being a MAN I would expect his male voices to be better. His inflection is good, whispers are whispers and he's okay with all that but this big and tough warrior/fighter sounds like he might be 19 and a virgin...not so good for the swoon moments, which may be why I couldn't connect as well as I would have liked.

Homicide Detective Falls in Love!

If you could sum up Fury of Ice in three words, what would they be?

Strong women rule!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fury of Ice?

I remember the scene of how Angela escaped through the ventilation system when she broke out of the razorbacks lair. Very well written!

What does Benjamin L. Darcie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is very good at telling a story. Very easy to listen to and almost hypnotic in a good sort of way. Really brings the interest of the story to the reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed the entire book!

Don't waste your credit, totally not worth it

What would have made Fury of Ice better?

A different narrator would have been a good first step. Though the story itself was slow and hard to keep listening to ... due to so many positive reviews I kept listening waiting for it to pick up and get more interesting. Paranormal books are my favourite way to escape into another world for a short while, this book didn't fit the bill at all. I'm going back to the old fashioned way of reading paranormal books.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Definitely nothing from this author or narrator !

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The book had sexy characters and scenes and I felt I was listening to my grandfather talk about "harder" "faster" and well suffice to say I looked forward to the intimate scenes to be over as it was plain awkward! And hearing what sounded like an elderly gentleman use swearing words, just didn't have the impact I imagine the author was going for :(

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Where is the fast forward button!

Too many POVs and internal ramblings

The first book in this series had serious similarities to Ward's BDB: the language, the two factions of warriors battling each other but with dragons instead of vampires, etc. Even though I wasn't crazy about reading a BDB clone, something about the characters pulled me and I decided to give Fury of Ice a chance, specially because I had read in previous reviews that the author became more herself. But I didn't find any such thing.

The book still has like a million POVs and lots of internal rambling about unnecessary things. Who cares if the villains are eating sandwiches or that one of them likes trucker lingo? I want time spent on the actual relationship - after all, this is a romance. But that was glossed over, specially the heroine's recovery after her kidnapping and abuse. Am I suppose to believe that a woman in her situation would be hooking up with a guy so soon? Give me a break!

Bejamin Darcie's narration was spot on even if his Scottish accent wasn't very attractive -sorry to say, he's no Robert Petkoff but I will definitely listen to another series narrated by him.

I liked most characters in the book - I applauded when the heroine realized that she was being very selfish by endagering the hero with her pursuit of revenge - but I just wished we would have spent more time on the main characters. I'm curious to see what's the deal with Wyck so maybe I'll continue listening. Can't say for sure right now.
