UPDATE 8/4/13
is this book ever going to come out? the publication date says Dec of 2012 on goodreads and the the author's website!! GGGGGRRRRAAAAAHHHHHHGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLLLBBBBBLAHHHH!!!!!!! O.o

There were parts of this installment that I really liked and there were parts of this that were just ok. I love the world, and how Marina stands up for what she believes in. I don't love how selfish she is and how she admits to being wrong but then holds grudges based on pride. The challenges and political intrigue were really exciting. And the parts between Marina and Kaol were mostly good, they have a more developed relationship, plenty of sexy times, and an understanding. However, I hattte
First of all, I think it is definitely about time Penelope got herself an editor or at the very least proof read her shit. This book was much better than the others I have read by her in the respect to horrible typo's and grammar, but it was still horrible.

It took me a bit to get back into the story since Fletcher spent no time recapping the first book. The pacing was all over the place so the book did not flow.

Bringing Cat over really held no purpose other than to show you what a horrible frie
It is FINALLY available! (after almost two years)

The cliffhanger at the end of this one isn't so bad as the first book, but I can't wait for the next.

This dragon world is AMAZING! The book is packed with tons of action and heartbreak. I am not usually a fan of a series of books following the same couple from book to book, but I hope the next one is still focused on Marina and Koen.

Spoiler about Boy: (view spoiler)
finally came out. pretty good book not real problems with it it was worth the time to read.
Okay, so...


Often, people talk of the 'second book syndrome' (the first book was such a hit, the second one sucked in a major way)... My tired and bleary eyes can totally attest to the fact that it is totally not the case in this book... When I started this book at about midnight yesterday, I totally did not expect not to be able to tear my eyes off the pages long enough to catch some winks.

So, there was me, late into the night/morning laughing out loud and at times feeling my heart
Seeing some of these reviews makes me wonder if anyone actually read either Burn or Smolder...

Besides the glaring editing/grammatical issues, or the plot continuation mistakes that were made between the happenings in Smolder to Burn... did no one notice the characters having personality implants? I mean Marina, (view spoiler)
Great book

Great book

The story is original and well written. Ms Fletcher has a good grasp on her characters and isn't afraid to take risks necessary to keep them true to the people she has created. I hope there is more coming. There are still copywriting errors, spelling
in particular.

The book was good and I definitely recommend. For those who are thinking about reading the first book (Smoulder) and are in two minds because they’ve heard bad things about the spellings – do it, it’s worth putting up with the spelling mistakes. This book is a huge improvement from the first book, and I loved it.

Although the Aver contest is concluded in this book, there is more of Marina and Koen to come I think. The epilogu
Mad about
Another 5* from me. Loved this book as I really felt the emotions Marina did and after thinking the trials of Aver would be spread out it was all wrapped up in this.

After she and Daniil both realised their relationship was going beyond the boundries of friends she enlists her own team of people rather than relying on others to help her through the trials of Aver and Tzion itself. She and Kion can finally become closer as everyone is realising their rules wont keep them apart anyway.


The heroine of this series is fantastic. She is kind, brave, patient, plucky and funny. She is willing to die for those she loves and wants to become queen and empress to improve lives.

The hero appears in the first book to be irresponsible, thoughtless and lacking in honor. He refuses to take up his duties as king or emperor unless he can have a mate he loves by his side. Not very impressive but he is good looking and a dragon so we overlook his faults. Besides the heroine loves him and she is w

Now this book continues from the end of Smolder where there is an epilogue of when she is starting out Aver, the quest to win the chance to become Empress and rule the Dragon land. So anyway blah blah blah, yada yada yada, stuff happens, and i know if i go into too much detail i will give stuff away and ruin the book for everybody i think.

So let me begin with the reason why i did not give Burn a full 5 stars. Hmmmm, i am not sure actually because this book seemed to go on forev

This was a great continuation of the story and was filled with all kinds of fun and exciting things but numerous typographical errors and the ending pulled down the overall rating for me. The ending felt rushed and, honestly, confused and frustrated me. I still thoroughly enjoyed the book and it's not like the ending was awful or anything. I think the next book (whenever it comes out) will probably take a step back and cover some of the things that were rushed at the end but without tha
It actually came out? Holy fuck, I thought the book had been abandoned altogether. I remember being super excited two years ago, but now I can barely remember the first instalment; I'm not sure if I care enough to reread it.

Okay, scratch that. I cared enough. I reread Smoulder in two days and immediately moved on to burn. What I liked. I liked the dragons. Out of all dragon-shifter stories I've read, this one was the best. Why? Because you actually got to see them in dragon form interacting with
I'm slightly dissappoined with this book as I was expecting so much more! I figured the story would continue with Marina competing in the quests but somehow the quests weren't the main focuspoint but Boy was (the adopted assassin). The story actually gets a bit dull with lots of talking and discussing pointless things and as much as I loved Marina in Smolder being the kickass girl, she got on my nerves in Burn acting like a spoiled brat. Can't help but feel the ending was way too rushed as I was ...more
I felt as though I had left the back of a mighty dragon as the book neared its end....

...this book brought me to my knees. The characters were mighty, passionate and inspiring. Marina and Koen share an enchanting, admirable bond that would bring jealousy to even the strongest couples. Ice and Fire. I'm in love, Ms. Fletcher. You've brought life to the genre!

I loved the second book as much as the first. It was funny,sad, and I cried when, Keon, thought,Mirina, was dead. I hope you have another book on what happened to, Boy. The ending left me hanging so I hope you have book 3 on the way of the series Dragon Souls.

she won her mate. Lost her son. she kicked ads and asked not enough questions. now she is queen. she must go and safe the one child she has mourned for years to put him were he belongs.

Even though there were some awful grammatical errors the main bulk of this story was really good.

Marina is still a feisty character who is going after what she wants and trains hard in order that she can get through the tasks asked of her.

There are a few stumbling blocks along the way and it doesn't take long before I start not liking Daniil after he was so nice in the first book.

This book although it has a cliff hangar ending does not end any where as abruptly as the first book, but I am annoye

We'd been waiting a long time for this book... I just now finished it and... Wow-sahs!!
I will not spout any spoilers, so no worries. ;)
I will say this: get it now but be sure to have a full, uninterrupted day of "hold onto your butts" excitement! I had to read it in 2 days and couldn't wait to get back to it. *chuckle*
Penelope, well done, well done indeed! Thank you so much for another rip-roaring adventure! Looking forward to the next chapter and rooting for all to be well and happy.

loving tuis book. the continued growth of marina and her bond with those around her. fantastic read

this book was great. it was worth the wait. I hope to God it doesn't take forever and a day for miss Fletcher to finish the next installment. I will start a riot. sooo good.
A compelling story, just slightly spoiled by grammatical errors. Would benefit from an edit.
Like I said editing it lacks. that was awesome I can't wait for book 2
Jamie Johnson
Enjoyed this book but the ending left me wanting. Looking forward to the next book- Ash.

Really wanted to see how this would end. I was entertained by this. I kind of want a third book, but The ending was sad and happy.....
5 stars and more.

The wait has been long for this sequel to Smolder but it was SO worth it. I just love this book, a great continuation and once again an amazing book from Miss Fletcher. She takes you to a world of dragons and mages, making you feel as if you were living the challenges and other adventure alongside Marina, Koen and all the other crazy but touching characters. A beautiful world, some very attaching and sometimes frustrating characters. I want more, I can't wait to read Boy or Ryu
Here's hoping that there is a book 3. I want more! :)
*3 1/2 Stars*
Sooooo much better than the first book :)
Really enjoying this series! Agree with some of the other comments about the ending feeling a bit rushed... Looking forward to the next book! I just hope Ms Fletcher does not go the route of The Rae Wilder Series and have the last book from multiple perspectives (it just gets confusing, and we already Love Marina... Add a second perspective if NEEDED but no more, Please!!!)

Right, off to go and read them over again...
