Well she has done it yet again. Kimberly Loth knows how to write books in ways that will keep you captivated from beginning to end.

I have read the previous 3 books, Obsidian, Aspen & Valentine, so have already fallen in love with the main characters. I guarantee you will want to read one after the after the other until you finish but be warned when you finish book 4, Skye, you need to be patient for book 5 (there has to be a book 5 right!!).

We certainly received a shock at the end of book 3, I n

I'll admit that this is the first story I read in the series. There was a lot of different characters that I know were from other books but I was still able to enjoy the story. I'll definitely be going back and reading the others to catch up on everything that I missed. The only thing I wished was that this book was longer I wanted more depth some of it felt rushed and left me wanting more. And then the ending! Ah! I need the next one now lol
I would recommend this book to paranormal romance love
Wow! This one was such a rush! And that prologue made the story even more interesting. I loved it.
After reading Hazel's book, about Rowan's disappearance, so much was clarified and all the questions were answered, at least about Skye and her secrets.
I absolutely loved to see Rowan improve and become such a powerful and strong male. He deserved it!
This book had all kinds of suspense and activities, it was awesome! Also, I love how fast-paced it is, it's never a dull moment.
I'm excited to read the

Skye by Kimberly Loth is about the young woman named Skye who is going through some changes as she tries to decide to do with herself. She's changing but she doesn't know what it means or what to do. But what she does know is that these changes put her in some serious danger and not just her but her friend Rowan. This book starts off with her finding her friends so there is no question as to whether they are successful in doing so or not so the story back tracks to before to tell you how they ge ...more

Say whaaaaaaaaaaat?! I mean I KIND of guessed maybe this could happen..but I wasn’t for sure! And honestly, if I hadn’t already seen the cover I doubt it would have crossed my mind.

I feel like I can say more about this without fear of spoiling because this entire story takes place at the same time as Valentine just obviously some place else! I already mentioned how much I loved Rowan in past reviews for this series and I’m so so tickled that we get so much of him in Skye!

So many questions were a

I don't know what to say.

I enjoyed the story of Rowan and Skye. I felt bad for Skye that she wanted to love Rowan, but wasn't able to. What she gave up to get over Sid was horrible, I understand why she did it, and it turned out fine at the end.

Rowan really grew in this book. He got over a lot of his fears and even when fearful he still pushed through to do what is better for everyone over all. (I can't wait for Hazel to kill a dragon and see how she reacts.)

I still wonder what it is that make

This is the first Kimberly Loth books I’ve read/listened to, I enjoyed the storyline very much.

Each book must be read in order, even though books 3 and 4 are based around the other Kings relationships with their romantic counterpart, as the story continues from the previous book.

Each relationship has its own trials and tribulations to overcome but in the mean time they are fighting a war w
It is quite funny how this book starts with a spoiler: (view spoiler) Then goes with: let me tell you how it happens.

The story take place at the same time as the previous book. We follow Skye & Rowan. The love-sick puppy teenage boy decides to follow her without warning anybody. The dragon girl is being hunted because she has a loyalty seal with Obsidian.

The romance part was so cheesy, Skye spend ¾ of the book telling Rowan that she cannot lov

Skye is a dragon shifter story with a twist- the dragon king is a... girl! This book is part of the four book Dragon Kings series, and while you could enjoy it independently, I recommend starting with the first book Obsidian. This is book four.

The story is pretty good overall. It is definitely aimed at YA audiences, though it will appeal to some adults as well. Some of the characters actions are questionable, but they are teens, so perhaps that is understandable.

Contains violence and mild sexual

This was heads and shoulders, knees and toes above valentine. The difference is laughable.

This story had a storyline and heart. The cliche was still there strong and at the forefront but that expected. It's the fact that the characters are actually acting as they should, the timeline was not all over the place and things made sense.

If I was talking to someone that was about to buy these books. I would ask them if they were sure and if they said yes I would let them know that the 3rd book does no

Dragons Part 4

Let me just say, I love Skye!!! This is the fourth part of the Dragon Book Series & tells the tale of what happened to Skye & Rowan. It takes place in the timeline @ the end of Aspen & through Valentine. It might be my favorite book in the series however I have not read the final edition yet. The author gives you all the missing pieces on both Skye & Rowan that started in both Obsidian & Aspens book. Highly recommend this series. Also who does not love freaking Dragons!!!!!

2.5 stars. Meh it was alright. Skye’s panicked flight and refusal to tell anyone what was going on was annoying as was Rowan’s magical transformation into badass dragon slayer from anxious nerd. I was fine with his gradual transition from working out and facing his fears, where it lost me was the magical dragon healing fire that miraculously cured all his problems – the wound, his bad eyesight and his anxiety. At least this time the relationship wasn’t insta-love. Skye and Rowan were actually fr ...more

I very much am enjoying Kimberly Loth's Dragon Kings series, but I must say I did not enjoy Skye as much as the others. I think it is because I just did not click with the characters in this book as well as Valentine. Once I find characters that I like, it's hard for me to get involved with additional characters. Thus, my favorite characters are Obsidian and Aspen. These books are quick and enjoyable reads and is not difficult to finish a book in one day. If you like dragons and just a fun read, ...more

Skye and Rowan’s story rocked! It was great seeing what they went through and the why behind what they did. This prophecy is becoming more detailed and the flip on King is intriguing. I hope the next book explains how all queens are siblings bc that is neat but weird! Some lovely moments and sweet moments as well as some heartbreaking moments in this read as well, so be ready for an up and down adventure. Also, Runa is the VIP...she is awesome and I love the sass that she brings to the conversat ...more

The storyline of this book is so compelling, it is full of action and drama, a asearch for the truth.It is based around Skye and Rowan and i really enjoyed getting to know them better, you see into them more making you understand who they are and their motive which is crucial to this storyline. There are secrets around every corner and you feel that the truth will be revealed any moment. This is a major page turner due to how this was written, the more i read of Kimberly Loth’s books the more i ...more

For real?!?!?

I really should get use to these cliffhangers but nope!
Wow I love Rowan maybe better then Hazel. He is amazing! A boy with anxiety who was able to fall in love and slay dragons! As someone with anxiety who slays her own dragons this book was outstanding.
I cannot wait to read the conclusion as for once it shouldn’t be a cliffhanger.
I was unsure about Skye but in this book she totally redeemed herself

I enjoyed this book more than the third but it still didn’t live up to books 1 & 2. I couldn’t believe how selfish and cowardly sky was. She seemed so loyal and strong in the beginning and then she just ran away from everything and didn’t even try to war the others about what she knew. While sky showed her weakness in this book Rowan really stepped up and showed his strengths. I hope the conclusion to the series does the first two books justice.

The Saga continues with Skye and Rowan, learning new things and trying to find out about the prophecy. This book is written as a flashback for most of it, it fills in the “gaps” from Valentine’s book and gives you an update to where everything stands. I was a little disappointed to see, the new king projected so weakly but I can see where there might be a change coming. These books have to be read in order, they are not stand alone, they build off of each other. Off to read book five.

So glad I was finally able to get a peek into Skye and Rowan's minds. They are so cute together. Rowan is just as amazing as Aspen and he deserves someone who will love him back. Now that the kings are all together, the war is about to rage on. I hope that the stories about only one of the kings surviving isn't true because I'm fond of all of them. I was so happy that Runa got a little cameo. I love her so much. I cannot wait to see how this story ends.

Skye is a great continuation in The Dragon Kings series, but not a stand alone story. Unlike me it's better to read the first three in series so your not lost. Skye has some really exciting, suspenseful parts to it., The romance was good as was the twist and turns Kimberly wrote. I really enjoyed the relationship between Skye and Rowen. The friendship they enjoyed kept this reader reading long into the night. This is a fast paced, very enjoyable story that leaves you definitely wanting more. It ...more

Well this was much much better than the 3rd book by far. I still want to read more about Sid & Aspen though. Hopefully book 5 will be as great as books 1 & 2 because I definitely did not like 3. I was always very sad when the good dragons died. Loved how Rowan turned out to be quite a dragon slayer and a couple surprises about who you think your allies are but aren't. ...more

I debated on whether to give this one a 3 or 4 rating since there are no in between number ratings. I did enjoy the book and I would like to read the three previous installments in the Dragon Kings series. I liked the characters and the story was interesting. I liked Rowan because he was willing to do anything for the one he loved. I do think leaving his family and friends behind was a bit drastic but I would do the same for my loved ones. I liked Skye but felt she was a bit selfish for most of ...more

Watching (well, really reading) the saga of the Dragons and Humans continue.

This book is the story of Skye and Rowan . . . the twists and turns make it VERY interesting to read. It also makes me more interesting in how Book #5 (Kings) is going to work out.

The beginning was a bit slow. A lot of doubt and repetition. But once the book continues the plot unravels. With backstabbing and deaths. It’s easy to falling love with skye and now mr bad assery Rowan.

I really like that Kimberly has taken a different approach to each dragon's story of finding out about Kings and finding their love. The variety fits the dragons and the story of the dragon war approaching.
