4.5 Stars

I knew coming into this book that Wick is darkened with a past that future relationship was just unimaginable. Frankly, I had no idea how his story will be playing out. He also had a certain bond with Venom, his best bud that I couldn’t quite understand. Their relationship made me question their sexuality. I won’t divulge that little information , but I can tell you that they are very close and Ven is the only one who truly knows him. I was curious on how t

Have loved Wick all through these books, will wait to hear his story with bated breath. That is a wounded warrior I need to know better.
I'm done with this series.

Every time I read a book in this series, I complain about the same things: the over the top metaphors, the slang, the lengthy internal monologues about non-sense, the myriad POVs that take away from th main couple, the undeveloped relationships, etc. etc. No matter how I wished the author would actually write her own thing instead of trying to imitate the WARDen, it's clear that she's going for the latter. I guess that's why even the narrator jumped ship.
Wick's story is finally here! We knew Wick had a hard life, we knew there was something that made him the way he was.. but ladies be ready because it was nasty. Now don't get all worried, while Coreene Callahan gave Wick a tortured past.. she did not suffer from extreme Kenyonitis.. so we don't have to relive the entire thing. It's enough that we know it was harsh!!

While we don't have to relive the years that Wick was held captured and tortured, forced to fight to survive, he does. And Wick has

This is the fourth book in Coreene's sizzling Dragonfury series and deals with the most damaged warrior, Wick. If you haven't read her Dragonfury series, I'd recommend you start with Fury of Fire. The covers are beautiful, and the men are hard and very hot. Now back to Wick: For newbies to the series, Wick had a horrid childhood complete with slavery, torture and despair. He's a man of few words, but something melts when he meets J.J., a woman imprisoned and brutalized by prison life. Once the t ...more
Wick’s story is finally here! It feels like I haven’t read a Dragonfury book in forever, even though it’s only been a year since the previous one was published. The first three books were published only a few month apart, so prior to this fourth one, I guess I felt lucky to be able to buy and read them so close to one another. After about a year of waiting, we finally get to read Wick’s story and let me tell you, the wait is definitively worth it.

Ca fait un moment que j'avais envie de tester cette série dont j'ai entendu beaucoup de bien. Je n'ai pas lu les tomes précédents p(as eu le temps), mais puisque j'avais celui-là sous la main, et que le résumé était intéressant, j'ai tenté.
Ca peut se lire indépendamment, malgré certains termes qui je pense ont bien été expliqués aux lecteurs dans les tomes précédents. Il n'y en a pas beaucoup non plus, ce qui fait qu'on comprend assez rapidement les tenants et les aboutissants de la trame princi

I wanted to give this book a 4.5 or 5 sooooo bad but the simple fact that the main couple, Wick & J.J, spent so little time with each other didn't give me enough to even know them as a couple. Even if I suspend belief and give leeway because it's a paranormal and we all know about mates, true love, and all that jazz; it just wasn't enough for me to just fall head first into their automatic love and vows.

Besides from that, this is definitely my favorite of the series. You had the rela

I love Wick. He is a man of very few words but shows his loyalty with his actions. So when he wants to payback Mac ,his fellow Nightfury, for saving Venom’s life he decided to rescue Tania’s little sister Jamison (aka J.J.). Not everything goes quite according to plan while getting Jamison out of the hospital . And thing get even worse the moment Wick touches her.

This was a great Nightfury story. Wick and Jamison are perfect for each other. Both have a past that all

In some ways I feel the romance between Wick and J.J. was overshadowed by the overall story arc of Ivar's nefarious plot and Nian's whatever-it-is he has in the pipeline. I would have liked the couple to have more one on one time to develop a connection because suddenly it was like 85% of the book and they were falling into bed. I get the cosmic drive to be together, like fate choosing them as bonded mates, but I also want a couple to choose each other for themselves, if that makes sense. Having ...more

I have been looking forward to this book since completing the 1st 3 books which I have read repeatedly. I plan to reread this one next month. The Dragonfury group appear to be men, unless they change into their dragon form. Each is different in color and abilities. Wick was abused from an early age as he was forced to fight to the death for the amusement of dragonkind in Europe. After turning dragon, another fledgling dragon helps him to escape and they take up life in America. Bastion, the lead ...more

Fury of Desire is the newest Dragonfury book by Coreene Callahan. These Dragon Shifters are HOT HOT HOT! And Wick? He’s the hottest!

Fury of Desire is book 4 in the Dragonfury series. This is Wicks story. I have read the first 3 books in this series and as much as I loved the first 3, Fury of Desire is my favorite so far. The plot thickens and new characters emerge. Betrayal, revenge, and steamy romance run rapid through out the pages. Coreene Callahan did an amazing job on Wicks and J.J's characters. I absolutely love where Coreene is taken the story. I really enjoy Coreen

In the 4th book in the series, we get the story (finally) of Wick and JJ. We have already been introduced to JJ in the previous book as she is Tania's sister who was incarcerated for manslaughter. She is being hounded by Griggs, a nasty prison guard who wants Tania and will stop at nothing to get her, including having JJ beaten by another inmate. Wick, having been held captive and tortured when he was young, cannot stand the touch of another. Venom, his best friend, has to help him feed on the e ...more

I loved this book so much. I want to just say "YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK" but of course that's to simple. I was sucked into this book from the very beginning and could hardly put it down. I didn't want it to end and I can't wait for the next book. There are so many things coming in this series I don't know which one I want to happen first.

Coreene Callahan has done it again with this wonderful installment of the Nightfury novel series “Fury of Desire”. Her elaborate world building continues to expand to a fascinating level. Truly evil and frightening villains, a possible double agent, new alliances, science, and mysteries intermeshed with a sexy love story.

Well, I'm sorry to say I am disappointed with this book. My opinion is that too much of the book was dedicated to all the subplots and not enough to Wick and JJ' s story. I think they are both very good characters with a lot of gut wrenching story to be told between them, but that didn't happen. The why behind their connection was hinted at but not fleshed out. I wanted more couple time and less about all the mess going on with Dragonkind. This book felt like a set up for the next and their is k ...more

There is so much passion in this book it made me weak at the knees.

Anyone who knows me knows I love Coreene Callahan's Dragonfury series. And yes, I've bounced back and forth with the game "Who's my favorite dragon?" The answer is clear. Wick. There's something about a warrior so emotionally wounded that it makes him vulnerable. All I want is for him to find his happy place. And his woman. We get that and more with this emotionally written, action packed, sensually charged, amazingly well writte

Was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book early from the author. I have to say that it's my favourite so far, although will forever have a soft spot for Mac. Beautifully written as we've come to expect from Coreene Callahan, the story unfolds at a good pace. This story really concentrates on the two lead characters which both have a complicated and in Wicks case a incredibly torturous past. I loved the snippets that we got from Venoms point of view. Ivar's still being very naughty and the ...more

J'en attendait beaucoup, les héros étant prometteurs dans les tomes précédents. Malheureusement l'auteur a privilégié l'évolution de la trame principale en sacrifiant l'histoire du couple. C'est vraiment dommage, ils méritaient mieux. Livre bancal qui ouvrent trop de portes en même temps et nous laisse sur notre faim.

3.5 stars - Fury of Desire turned out to be my favorite of the series so far. The emotionally damaged dragon shifter, Wick, starts out such a mess that he can barely feed - the trauma from a childhood of slavery and torture have left him unable to bear to be touched. All though he is incredibly antisocial, even with his Dragon brethren, he is fiercely loyal. And even though he sees himself as an irredeemable killer, he has hidden depths and an artist's soul. But it is his loyalty and honor, whic ...more

J.J. is also has her emotional issues and past to deal with, and when Wick breaks her out of the hospital, away from a brutal prison guard, they find that they have a very intense connection.

I loved this! I was so looking forward to Wick's story. I will say I wish there was more time for them. It didnt work out that way because they were too busy trying to get her to safety. Poor Wick has been to hell and back. JJ has too and THATS why they are perfect for each other. They are both imperfect therefore perfect for each other. Wow...Bastian has a brother?

I have craved Wick since the first moment we were introduced to these dragon warriors. With a mysterious past, this fire dragon’s story was sure to be filled with passion. I loved how the author slowly reveals both his tortured past and the lasting impact it has on his present. Considering he is feared by the resident females of Black Diamond, cannot stand to be touched, and has a VERY co-dependent relationship with Venom – it would seem impossible to develop/maintain a mated relationship.
