Thank you to Tonya Cannariato (Author) for letting me read and review this book early :D

In Book 2 of the Red Slaves Series, the story begins One month into the future. Anne has been hiding out in her new home in the Caves with Ivan, Fyodor and Vasily. Anne, who was never a "believer" in paranormal occurrences, has been trying to hide away from the fact that she's become a Dragon and Ivan is her Mate. While the KGB are trying to get Anne, Ivan, Fyodor & Vasily back to return them as Slaves.

Blood to Fire is the second book in the Red Slaves Series by Tonya Cannariato. This is a fantastic paranormal/fantasy- with action, danger, drama, magic, dragons, KGB, romance, and intrigue. Being the second book in the series, and having a continuing storyline, I really recommend reading the first story before jumping into this one. As with the first book, this story had so much going on in it. I loved the authors descriptive style and her attention to detail. She is a superb

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I also received the first book in the series so I would understand this story.

This is the second book on the Red Slaves Series. The main character is Anne. She has been hiding out in the caves. This story takes place a month into the future. Anne doesn't believe in the paranormal and she isn't very accepting that she is a dragon and Ivan, who she is staying with in the caves, is her mate. Ivan is just sweet an amazing.

There is drama in this

Blood to Fire (Red Slaves) by Tonya Cannariato was a great continuation to what is quickly becoming a addicting, unique series.

Picking up a month after the first book ends, we are once again tossed back into this new, yet old world of dragons and trying to find out what is causing their abilities to be dampered (AKA, not being able to shift into their other forms).

Okay I'm going to real, after coming off the high of the first book, and that explosive ending, I wasn't feeling the first little

5 out of 5 stars

Blood to Fire is the second book in the Red Slaves series written by Tonya Cannariato and its also the second book that I have read by this author. So I started to read book two before I red book one Dust to Blood and was completely lost and thought to my-self what kind of book/series did I pick. After I realized that I started the wrong book I then went and started reading booking one and enjoyed the story but book two was amazing.

This is the second book in the Red Slave series from Tonya Cannariato. I was new to reading her work when I picked up the first in this series and I have been a fan ever since. I loved that this book just pulls you in, holds the attention, and then literally plunges you off a cliff with the cliffhangers that will have you baited for the next book. I would definitely read the first book in the series, Dust to Blood, before you pick up this one, or you could find yourself a little lost.

Blood to Fire by Tonya Cannariato is the second book in her Red Slave Series, and it just keeps getting better and better. Continuing the story of Anne Crosby and Ivan Krempenski, this story gives you a little bit of everything from action, suspense, danger as well as paranormal fantasy overload. I fell right back into this story after reading book one and couldnt wait to see where Anne and Ivans story went next. As well watch Anne and Ivans story continue, we are hit with the idea that Anne is ...more

This is the second book that I have read by this author and this series and again I found myself transported back into the amazing world that this author has created. Her writing is so creative and imaginative and she has created wonderful characters. I would definitely recommend reading book 1 first to fully understand what is going on in this story.

Blood to Fire is the second instalment in the Red Slaves series and it is a great continuation from the first novel. Id recommend to read the first novel in the series before beginning Blood to Fire because the story itself is quite complex so you could get a little lost in the narrative if you havent! It also helped to have read the first book because I was already familiar with the characters and it allowed me to immediately get straight into it! I loved the use of first person again of Annes ...more

I give Blood to Fire (Red Slaves Book 2) by Tonya Cannariato, 4 stars.
**This review contains spoilers from book one**

Anne knows she is a dragon. But part of her still fights the fact, and that she is mated to Ivan. But she is slowly coming around. That is not her only problem, though. She must figure out the mysteries of their race to help her new friends, all the while staying hidden from the powers that want to enslave her kind. It is difficult, but she must do it. But at what cost?

Blood to Fire by Tonya Cannariato is a great second book in the Red Slaves series, a 5-star read,

In the second installment we find Anne and Ivan are mated. They are so cute together, and I love how Ivan cares for Anne so much that he is willing to put up with her brand of annoying. I say annoying because she started to get on my nerves questioning every little thing. I can see how it would be scary and crazy to come into some new powers but, with her it was a little much. Anne is still trying to

Blood to Fire is a paranormal fantasy by Tonya Connariato and the second book in the Red Slaves series (make sure to read Dust to Blood first!).

Now they are in hiding trying control their abilities and avoid being enslaved by the KGB who wants their powers. Can these mates find safety for themselves and their kind?

Blood To Fire by Tonya Cannariato is the second book in her Red Slave series. This series really should be read in order as it follows the same characters and follows on from the events in book one.
Anne has travelled to Russia, determined to solve the mystery she was set on uncovering. What she hadnt expected though were be answers she actually found.
Dragon forms and links to herself having her questioning everything she once believed. And with the Russians syphoning magic she knows she is more

Red Slaves book two: Blood two Fire written by Tonya Cannariato. Following the story from book one Dust to Blood book two takes off with no confusion. This story is about Anne and Ivan learning about dragons and the way things are. There is so much they dont know and do not remember that the elder Gods interfere to teach them the ways to not only survive but how to ensure the continuation of the species. I really enjoy this series the more I get into it. I think its fun to learn as the ...more

Blood to Fire by Tonya Cannariato is the second book in the Red Slaves series. This book picks up a month later than book one finished. The pace of the story was uneven at first and made it more difficult to get me into the story. I was enjoying the progression of the story nonetheless. As I read further I was able to delve further into the story and am glad I held out and allowed myself to get invested in the story. Anne and Ivan are good characters and help to lead the story.

Blood to Fire is the second novel in the Red Slave series by Tonya Cannariato. This is my second novel by this author.

A month has gone, and Anna is trying to adjust. Not everything can explained with scientific evidence, somethings just are. Such as herself and Ivan being dragons as well as mates.

Despite Anne, asking questions, I really enjoyed this novel and the depth of the characters. I really enjoyed how her relationship with Ivan deepened as well as how she adjusted and she came to terms

Blood to Fire (Red Slaves Book 2) by Tonya Cannariato takes place a month after the end of the first book so I highly recommend reading this series in order. It thrusts us back into the world of dragons and magic that we came to know in the last book and expands on it even further. The plot was well written and kept me entertained from start to finish. Watching Anna and Ivan grow together was one of my favorite parts especially once she stopped fighting the idea of being mated. With plenty of ...more

It's actually quite refreshing to be able to dive back into a world and have it feel like you are home. That's exactly what Blood to Fire by Tonya Cannariato feels like.

I enjoyed revisiting Anne as well as her new mate Ivan, as they learn their new lives and with it, all that it entails. It was quite a thrilling journey to have to maintain their safety, as well as having to ensure the safety of all of their kind.

Like with the first book in this series, the author was able to maintain my

Yes! Book 2 of the Red Slaves series is all I wanted and more! Anna has uncovered more questions than answers about her case involving Ivan and herself. Ivan is a dragon and its pretty clear Anna is dead set against discovering her own draconian heritage but time is of the essence and only by embracing her new self and her new mate will she be able to help those who need it most. The new KGB is determined to enslave Russian dragons once more to bring the Communists back to their former might and ...more

Anne finds out more about the men she was investigating from the first book. As it turns out, they are dragons and so is she. Ivan is so incredibly amazing and Anne needs to be slapped a bit. She is in denial and needs to just accept her new life because Ivan is awesome and so are the rest of the guys really!!! They're al hiding out in these caves so they're not caught again and turned into slaves. You need to read this one to find out what's going on, I don't want to include spoilers. Overall, ...more

Loving this series! Anne is finding out more about the dragons that they are in this book. They're living in the caves and she finds that she can talk to them, more strangeness for her to wrap her mind around. Now they need to find other dragons which leads them to travel to China and other places though they're not part of the regular world. Once again the author is very descriptive which is wonderful and there are surprises and smiles. This is definitely a must read for dragon lovers, it's ...more

Blood to Fire by Tonya Cannariato is book two in the red slaves series. I definitely recommend reading book one. Anne has discovered Ivans dragon form and her own. They have to learn how to control it and stay one step ahead of the KGB. This was a fun and exciting book to read. I liked the characters and writing. I think the author did a great job with this one. Overall I enjoyed it and would read others in the series. 4 star rating.

Blood to Fire Red Slaves #2 by Tonya Cannariato

Four Stars

Okay now we are talking. You definitely see an improvement in this book. The story is still a little slow but you see more with the characters. You see growth between Ivan and Anne. Her insecurities and fears are something most people face everyday. The time lapses are a little confusing but I figured that the caves are like were fairies live and time moves slower for them. Good story getting excited for this next book.

This is the second book in this series. In this next installment of this series, Annie's journeys take her to Russia where she finds out more about herself and the men she has been investigating. I felt compassion for her because she is in such denial about who she is but she is a character that keeps you wanting to read more. The secondary characters are just as enjoyable and relateable. I highly suggest reading this book, find out where Annie's adventure takes her next.
