Tracy’s review of Whisper Kiss (Dragonfire #5) by Deborah Cooke

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 and the dreaded Slayers is about to begin…

Niall Talbot has volunteered to hunt down and destroy all the remaining shadow dragons before they can wreak more havoc. But fate has placed him in the hands of Rox, an unconventional tattoo artist who doesn’t even flinch when a shape-shifting dragon warrior suddenly appears on her doorstep. And as a woman who follows her heart in matters of passion, she makes the perfect mate for a firestorm with Niall…

Niall is in no mood for a mate. He’s on a mission to destroy all of the shadow dragons and the last thing he needs is someone taking up his time, especially someone woman who dresses like a punker. But Niall soon learns that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. He sees in Rox someone that he can spend the rest of his life with.

Rox has always been fascinated with dragons so when she meets one she’s not too shocked about it. Then she meets Niall and although she likes his looks she’s pretty sure he’s too conservative for him. They both learn that they are using their outer shells as armor.

But armor they need when a powerful dragon, Chen, decides that Niall is the one dragon he needs to add to his collection. Now Niall and Rox have to protect each other from evil.

When I first started reading this book I wasn’t quite sure how Rox and Niall were going to do as fated mates but Cooke brought them together in such a way that was very believable. Ok, the men are dragons but it’s still believable! lol Rox and Niall were perfect for each other and I think it added to the story that they might not have jumped into the sack right away. They got to know each other and then made the decision…you know, just like in regular dating. 🙂

This was a great addition to the series. Deborah Cooke has a wonderful way of bringing the men/dragons from past books into each story and showing us a little of where they’re at now. It’s something I very much enjoy while reading her books.

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.
