Thorolf is the lone-wolf, loose cannon of the dragon shifters known as the Pyr, but he has his reasons. Now after having disappeared for two years he suddenly materializes when his mate-seeking firestorm begins, but his destined partner is not human either and is harboring many dark secrets of her own.
The Goddess Chandra is known by many faces and has spent centuries preparing for this very battle to help the Pyr survive extinction from their diabolical dark brothers the Slayers. Unfortunately

okay so the ending felt a little rushed and i would have loved more focus on the relationship, but it was overall a pretty good story but the next which is the last had better hit it out of the damn park.
Has the impulsive and uncontrollable Thorolf been searching for Chen for two years on his own? And are dragons about to be hunted again because of Jorge's actions? Has the pyr seen all the effects of the darkfire? Can and will JP tell them anything about Chen's plans? The pyr don't know the answers to these things, but they do know an oncoming firestorm when they see one and Thorolf is the lucky dragon for this installment!

Thorolf's latest distraction, Viv, is pursued not only by him but by the

"Serpent's Kiss" by Deborah Cooke. Book 10 in the Dragonfire series.

I liked this book. I've always wanted to know Thorolf's story since he was introduced a few books back. I really liked the character of Chandra, who ends up being Thorolf's true mate.

There are basically two storylines to follow in this book. One is Thorolf's background where he has been destined to save the Pyr (good dragon shifters) and the second is Thorolf possibly turning into a Slayer (bad dragon shifters).

I was really intr

I have considered this series & other writings of Claire Cross to be keepers & largely 5*, so I am very disappointed in this book!
Since the addition of the Dragon's Teeth warriors, the series moved away from modern issues & solutions - which I highly enjoyed - to Greek mythology (let the gods be responsible for/solve everything). I think that was a cop-out. I accepted it with the previous book, because it did fit somewhat with the Dragon Legion & thought that set of stories was w

I received this book free through the First Reads program. This is the 10th book in the series, and while I had not read any of the previous books I was not lost in the story. It was clear who was good and who was bad, what the bad guys were doing, and if there was any uncertainty about what happened, that was because the characters in the book didn't know either.

There are a lot of characters who clearly were part of adventures referenced (lightly) from previous books. However, the short referen

Dragons are real! And with dragons around, why not other magical beings? Like a 2,000+ goddess on a quest, trying to keep her chastity intact from the amorous attention of Thorolf, a dragon who is well known for his chasing and catching women who eagerly jump into bed with this well built warrior. When Thorolf's firestorm, (a burning demand for the dragon to mate with the woman destiny has chosen to be the mother of his son), Thorolf is VERY willing. So the fact that his future mate is a Goddess ...more

I really enjoy the Dragonfire series, so I was very excited to receive this book through a giveaway here on Goodreads. This book is Thorolf's story, his background and his firestorm and all the complications that come with it. Rafferty is one of my favorite characters of this series, and his role in this book made me adore him even more. The ancient serpent under the oceans confused me a bit on how it tied into everything, but that could be because I read the book so quickly. The list of the ...more

An interesting take on dragon shifters. This book is part of a series. Although I have not read any of the others, I found that I was still able to follow what was going on and the dynamics between characters. I liked the idea of the firestorm, I thought it was a great plot driving device. I also really liked the references to the everyday world such a clip of someone shifting to a dragon on you tube. It was nice to read a story about shifters that was integrated with "normal" people instead of ...more

As always this series is awesome Dragon love with twists and turns intrigue romance suspense mystenextry action packed drama kept me eon the edge throughout. I loved that the so called "loser" of the dragons ..... well let's just say I don't want to spoil it for you so I won't say anymore lol. Just trust me a great book to read I couldn't put it down. Literally stayed up all night. I Highly recommend this series and book. This one is the latest so look for the first book and read the series.
The Pyr enemies are Chen and the Slayers. Now, 30 pages from the end of the book, (view spoiler) I just couldn't wrap my head around that part of the book. It just didn't make any sense. There was no l ...more
Almost at the end!

As with all of the dragon fire novels, I was entranced from the first page. Thorofs firestorm was a great work up to set up the ending of this series of love matches of the original pyre. Definitely looking forwards to seeing where we end up at the climax of this story arc
