Sigh... several dozen pages of "foreplay" interspersed with some plot (or, more accurately, dozens of pages of him being amazed at how hot she is, and her being so seduced by how hot he is that she ignores all her instincts). Followed by, literally, 3 full chapters of foreplay/sex action between a couple different couples.

It is a JR Ward Black Dagger wannabe story - complete with the "hip" language and the clothing brand name dropping. People don't walk by someone, they "punch past" them. They don't hold the steering wheel, they fist it. They fist everything, actually...

There should be a story in here - it has the makings for a decently interesting world, complete with believable bad guys and motivations. Trouble is that it is ultimately a girl-porn novel (i.e. lust and sex all wrapped in fated love and hand-wringing angst), not a plotted story. I nearly bought the second in the series when it was on sale, and now I am glad I did not. There just isn't enough story here.

The sex is pretty graphic, but graphic in the girl-porn way (ie. he circled her "bud")... and once they start having it, it goes on and on and on. Maybe it's not as bad as I think it is - I might just have a headache... hahahahahah ( )

I liked the concept of dragonkind living among us, and I'm glad the Night Fury race of dragons were at least attempting to be thoughtful towards human females. But ultimately this story had too little of what I like best about the urban fantasy genre (creative creatures) and too much of what I like least about it (shallow romance and pornographic sex scenes). Apparently I've already bought the second book, perhaps because it was on sale on Audible, but I'm not sure I'll ever listen to it. ( )

Always looking for a new audiobook to listen to, I came across Fury of Fire and decided to give it a chance. I found the story-line to be engaging,the romantic elements to be sizzling hot. Although it does have a number of similarities to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, the Dragonfury series is a nice addition to the paranormal genre. The book may have been served better with less BDB similarities in speech and personalities and more originality. I can't wait for the next installment. ( )

Welcome to Washington State.

This debut novel is the beginning to many additional installments.

Bastian is one of the oldest of his kind; an all male race born of human females - dragon-shifters. As leader of the Nightfury dragon clan it is his duty to protect humankind. With their numbers declining he needs to set an example. With only 5 days until the Meridian’s axis realign, he has less than a week to find a mate. “…Be the first to commit, to have a son, to lose his female in child birth.”

Myst Munroe, a nurse practitioner, just wants to check on her pregnant patient – Caroline Van Owen. She is still recovering from her mother, Dana’s, murder. When she arrives at Caroline’s house and discovers her lying in a pool of blood – the flashbacks begin. Her training kicks in and she works to save both mother and her unborn child. Soon Bastian and his first in command, Rikar, arrive dressed as EMS workers – the battle begins.

Bastian feels an immediate attraction to Myst; her energy is unlike anything he has experienced before. Seeing her distress, he feels a compelling need to take care of her. For Bastian, that is something that has never happen before – but it is the one thing that he can’t seem to control. When Myst starts to recover from the shock she become desperate, he knows that she will need his help – even if she is reluctant to accept it. Before long, Bastian finds himself unable to maintain his control – he wants to claim Myst for his own.

This is an emotion packed book that will make you laugh and make you cry. Myst’s plight comes right off the pages. Her confusion over her feelings for Bastian tears her.

The secondary characters enrich the story. ( )

Book description
A clandestine race of half-dragon, half-humans known as dragon-shifters lives among us. Bastian, leader of the Nightfury dragon clan, is sworn to protect humankind at all costs. For him, honor and duty always come first. When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die. Myst, the woman given into his care, is the most extraordinary he’s ever met, and though he can’t bear the thought of harming her, he is bound by duty.

Myst loves her life in the human world, but Bastian has captured her heart in an instant of electric connection. But Bastian and his warriors are in the middle of a deadly battle with the Razorback dragon-shifters, intent on killing every Nightfury clan member - and the humans they protect - the fate of their world and ours hangs in the balance. An extraordinary blend of action, fantasy, and steamy romance, Fury of Fire brings to life a dangerous new world intertwined with the survival of humanity, all while exploring the meaning of honor and the nature of true love.
