For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth’s treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth’s treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin.

Haunted by dreams of a lover who takes the form of a dragon, Eileen Grosvenor searches for the truth. She never expects to find a real dragon shape shifter, let alone one who awakens her passion and ignites memories of a forgotten past.
Erik Sorensson is focused on leading the Pyr against the Slayers when a powerful ancient relic reveals itself. Erik tries to retrieve it from Eileen’s possession—and is shocked by a fury of passion. Her presence touches him in unexpected ways, reminding him of mistakes he’s determined not to make again, and Erik is forced to make a choice—duty or love.
The summary pretty tells the basics of the story so I won’t get into too much detail. Erik is chosen for his firestorm, the time when a Pyr is chosen to mate with a specific human and breed; conception being the only way to end the firestorm. Erik is shown the face of the woman, but she looks amazing like his dead wife.

Eileen is one open-minded woman. Some crazy things start happening but she handles it well. She deals in myths for her teaching position so seeing a dragon before her is a little freaky but she’s intrigued.

Eileen and Erik end up being the two people who balance out each other and in doing so save the Pyr. Many things happen in this book but it’s the relationship between these two people that is the main focus of the story. As hot as their coming together was it was the balance and the calmness that made it so great.

This was a good third installment of the Dragonfire series and I’m looking forward to reading the next.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

  1. Thank you Tracy! I haven’t been able to track these books down yet, but I do remember the buzz over the cover of Kiss of Fire 🙂

  2. I have to say that i liked the first 2 books’ covers better than the 3rd. But that just makes me a picky bitch, doesn’t it? lol
