Damn, this book has left me restless.

Forged by Flames is a classic quest which was a nice transition book after the previous story arc ended.

Bailey, Aidan, Conrad, Miles, Danae, and Aidan's uncle and sister are traveling together to different parts of the US to reassemble a magical orb which can control dragon shifters, dragon slayers, and magic users. They have to go through a few trials, and in the process learn important things about their history and mutual origins.

You see, this part wa

Forged by Flames by Susan Illene a fiery good five star read. This is the third book in the Dragon’s breath series, and it doesn’t disappoint, its keeping the story going and bringing new aspects It just keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait for the next instalment.
This series focuses on Bailey Monzac who had just finished college and was deciding what to do with her life when the Dragons crossed over from Kederrawien the dragon realm. It’s at this time that she discovers she is a slayer

Holy Moly!!! What a journey has this book been? Stalked by Flames was one of my absolute favourite reads of last year and Forged by Flames is definitely up there for me this year. It has absolutely everything I look for in an urban fantasy book, characters I want as my best friends and care about just as much, utterly amazing and incredibly realistic world building (remember those annoying books where the heroine never thinks about going for a bathroom break for 24 hours plus?

An exciting quest

In my opinion, this newest addition to the Dragon's Breath Series is the best yet. If you haven't already read the previous novels of this series, the following contains spoilers for those books.
For humans, their whole world and everything they believed in changed in one day. They were no longer the top of the food chain. Suddenly not only were there dragons, witches, and dragon shifters, but some of the humans have discovered there is more to what they had thought they knew a

I really enjoy this series. It features a strong heroine and hero without either dominating.

The book starts out with Bailey (the heroine) and her friend Conrad out hunting dragons. While they are driving around they are stopped by Verena, the local sorceress. Verena has helped Bailey and her friends before, but she's always been sketchy. As payment for healing Conrad a while back Verena required a favor from Bailey to be granted at a later date. Unfortunately, now is the time.

Lots of action

I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to watch the friendships grow between characters and to find out details about the side characters that you previously didn't know about (Danae, Miles and Conrad especially). There was plenty of action and I liked getting a glimpse at the past and the origins of the shifters. All in all, it was a great read!

I want to love this series so badly. I'm not sure what keeps me from loving it but it never quite makes the leap from like to love it always leaves me slightly dissatisfied.

Glad I read the book and that the H/h has depended. Would like more character and world building out of the next books.

Enjoyed it.

Very good read. The storyline grabs you. The author writes a compelling book that almost seems real. Give it a try.

A complicated 3 stars

Despite being a diehard fan of Susan Illene's work, I have to admit I struggled with this book. If I am being honest, I also struggled throughout 2 as well. I chalked book 2 up to second book syndrome and the need to lay groundwork for books 3 and after. I think that is still valid.

For me, Forged by Flames just didn't have the usual...soul that we see in book 1 and throughout the Sensor series. I found the dialogue flowed less, became stilted. The plot wasn't unsurprising f

PROS: interesting story line, brings in a lot of different characters but not so many that I felt overwhelmed, great character development- I felt like I got to really know each one of the characters (but did not really relate to them)

CONS: I did not like how the author switched POV's, in my opinion it would have been more coherent and made me feel more a part of the story and relate better to the characters if it would have all been written in first person. I was also frustrated with segments b

A really great book.
So far I've loved everything this author published and I hope I'll continue to do so.
One of the things I love most about her books is the complexity of the stories. It's obvious the author put a lot of thought and time in this series.
The characters are amazing and the way she created the adventure in this book was brilliant.
I also thought that this would be the last book in the series, but I'm so happy to find out there will be more!
Can't wait for the next one!

I love this series.

Sure there is some romance in this series but the main characters don't complete revolve around their love interest. They have other priorities and responsibilities.

Great books, cannot wait for the next one!

Great story

An interesting journey with lots of twists and turns. Learning a history you knew nothing of. Finding out truths you did not know about or truths you were afraid to believe. Opening ones eyes.

Can't wait for the next in series!

I have read many books on the end of the world, none did it with dragons before. I am enjoying the characters as they mature in this new world and am looking forward to the next in this series.

Another good sequel in this series, although I think it is weaker than the second book (but still good). If you liked the first two books, you should get this book.
