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.

He’s known for an impressive lineage, raw power in battle and an impulsive indulgence of his appetites, but Thorolf is now an outcast from his fellow Pyr and Chen has drawn him into a trap. She’s a sorceress who’s trained all her life for a battle against evil that will shape the future and Chandra has never experienced passion. Readers are held spellbound throughout this thrillsational Dragonfire novel. Chandra and Thorolf have quite a few obstacles to overcome as the firestorm demands more tha ...more

This was a fantastic, well-written story. Thorolf is passionate and impulsive and has become separated from the rest of the Pyr. Chandra has prepared for centuries for a battle against evil that will determine the world's future. During this story Chandra and Thorolf learned to work together as a team and became better together than each one individually. Chandra learned to take on some of Thorolf's characteristics and Thorolf learned to be more like Chandra. I loved how they blended and how the ...more

Once again Deborah Cooke has given us a breathtaking read. This story of Thorolf & Chandra blends myth & reality into a narrative that completely captivates. The rebel Pyr redeems himself & uniites the brotherhood & their mates. Raching the end of bittersweet because only one more remains in this superb series.

Gotta tell you, I just love dragons and dragon shapeshifter stories. I see that this is number ten in a series and while it is clear there is backstory, it stands on its own.

Some woman done the hero wrong back in the day, so of course, he has trust issues. The heroine is pledged to celibacy and is an intriguing mix of every virgin huntress goddess in all the myths of all the world.

There is great evil loose in the world and this bunch of dragons is pledged to fight it. Chandra is also pledged to

"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
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

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 chi ...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

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
