Years ago, the skies ripped open and the world was destroyed in fire and ash. Dragons - once creatures of legend - are the enemy. Vicious and unpredictable, they rule the skies of the ruined cities, forcing humanity to huddle behind barricades for safety.

Claudia's a survivor. She scrapes by as best as she can in a hard, dangerous world. When she runs afoul of the law,

I'm assuming you mean the girls mentioned in book 1 in Claudia's story, where 4 (or 3?) other girls disappeared before her. I've also wondered the same about the girls that are said to disappear willy-nilly, taken by dragons throughout all of the stories. Is there just a bunch of human women out there who already have devoted dragon mates as well, like the main characters in the series do? Something to think about. :)(less)

Okay. So as I went down the reviews for this, I saw a lot of readers complaining about the heroine.

I was actually surprised because I liked this story, SPECIFICALLY because of the honesty, wittiness, sarcasm and surprisingly, the "realness" that the heroine brings to a story about a fucking dragon.

I'm sorry, but to the readers who complain about how often the heroine was untrusting of the dragon or wasn't immediately giving into the dragon's advances, makes me realize even more just how awfully

Dragons? Yes, please!

The book is describing a post-apocalyptic kind of world where while dragons are either golden or red and they are magnificent, the human cities are utterly destroyed and the humans are beyond miserable.
So, you can imagine the beautiful and big as buses dragons flying around throwing fire and burn everything to a crisp and the small and insignificant humans running and hiding in holes and praying.

There is chaos. No food, no fresh water, no clean clothes, no homes, no grass,


I'm retracting this.




Ok. On to the review.

I was so excited to read this. I've never read any dragon books.
At least that's what my brain tells me and I'm very sure my brain wasn't lying at all.
So imagine my delight when lady Kate sent this as a recommendation and my Abtastic Ab Loving Geishas were non-stop buzzing about it.

First Chapter.

Second Chapter.

Third Chapter.

Let's get this out of the way...I Love Dragons. They're awesome, they spit fire (or lightening, etc.) and you can ride in their backs and destroy cities. But I liked the Ice Planet Barbarians first books better than this one.

The world/setting is post apocalyptic in a Mad Max kind of way with people living in fortified cities and scavenging for goods. The militia is in power and don't really do anything but act in charge. The threat to mankind comes in scheduled dragon attacks. For reasons no

I had high hopes for this book based on the great impression I’ve had of this author's Ice Planet Barbarians series. The premise sounds very encouraging, but sadly, the novel was a bit of a let-down.

Apparently, this book both bored me and irritated me in equal measure. The story moved quite slowly and the female lead, Claudia, drove me crazy with her constant whining and idiocy. I was sick of her inner monologue which was way too repetitive. You have no idea how many times I wanted to

Yeah, nah.

I love you Ruby Dixon, but this was average.

The repetition in this was astounding. Did you know its hard to make do in Fort Dallas? That its hard especially as a woman? Did you know Claudia's sister Amy has a limp and can't fend for herself? Well just in case you forget at any point in this novel, you will be reminded of these things EVERY FUCKING CHAPTER.

Claudia was a whiny, annoying brat and I hated her and she did not deserve Kael.

I will still read the next book. I hope now that

I never thought I'd ever create a Goodreads bookshelf named 'Dragons'...

Dragons, werewolves, aliens... bring it on!!! Clearly there is no inter-species coupling that I won't read!

Anyways... I loved this story and hope Ruby Dixon continues with this series beyond Amy, and Sasha. I'm being greedy but I want as many dragon books as the Ice Planet series =D

"Fire in the blood" was a surprisingly delightful read.
I have previously read Some of Ruby Dixon's Ice Planet Barbarian series and loved them.
This, in my opinion, was on an equal par with them and I do Love a sexy dragon shifter so I was on to a winner straight from the get-go.
This story is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian future, where a few years previously rifts opened up in the sky and through these tear's came the dragons.

3 Meh Stars

I really enjoy this author because her books are “different”. I read her alien series and I was curious about this dragon one.

Nothing is too extreme for me.

I was kind of (really was) disappointed with this one. I didn’t hate it, but I had higher expectations because most of the books (not all) in the alien series worked for me.

I found the book really repetitive and more angsty than smut. What killed it for me was the Heroine, Claudia. As much as I love the Hero chasing after the

Here's to a Ruby Dixon series hopefully less obsessed with breeding!

This is one of those rating dilemma books. Enjoyment was a 4-Star but writing and plot was more like 3-Star. So do I rate on enjoyment or on character/world building and plot development?
I’m going to average it and say 3.5 stars but since Goodreads didn’t give me a half option. I’ll round up.

So Claudia is a human forced to scavenge for food and resources in Post Apocalyptic Fort Dallas after Dragons have ravaged earth. Claudia got caught stealing and the mayor decided to use her as a test

This was the PNR Book of the Month in one of my GR groups and I was really looking forward to reading this because I do love my dragons. This tale pulled me in and kept me interested in both the circumstances and the relationship between Claudia and Kael. I also liked the worldbuilding and the explanation for the appearance of the dragons and why they behaved as they did.

Up until the point where Claudia (view spoiler), I was

As for #1 in the series, it wasn't bad. But I thought there were so many repetitions in terms of dialogues and monologues. I could have used less of them. I found some grammatical errors as well which I ignored but found annoying at times....

Overall it was good story and I like world building.

It would have been lot better if it'd been cut down by 40-50 pages. I surely would not have minded.

But still I'm curious so I'd be continuing with the series.

A bit meh after the first part. Maybe, it would have been more interesting if the plot wasn't so weak.

oh boy Ruby is like at the tip top of my short list of favorite #GivesMeWhatIWant authors. I one clicked this baby on release day but after getting sucked into the Ice Planet series and how I kept moving on to the next and the next I was absolutely scared if I really dove into this one I'd have terrible book withdrawal... and I was so right.

I didn't really like this as much as the Ice Planet Barbarians. I don't know what else to say about it. There's nothing wrong with it per say, I just wanted more I guess.

3 Stars

This is just me having a thing/ problem with the majority of Ruby Dixon heroines: they annoy me all the f time !! They are exasperating and immature and annoying AF ( again, except Liz -IPB-) .

Anyway, I gave this 3 stars for the hero and for the idea of this dystopian new world after the dragons came from the sky and destroyed almost everything in their path.
I liked Kael, in fact I like all the Heros in R.D books, they are always gentle, caring, loving, protective and possessive towards

Ms. Dixon has come up with another crackilicious series (available on Kindle Unlimited). Dragons with textured bits and and claws instead of fingernails when in human form? Possessive alpha shifter who is ALL about his heroine? A little bit of action and danger to spice up the sexy times? Yep, definitely cracky.

There’s a bit of post-apocalyptic spin on the dragon shifter romance, but let’s face it, it’s more about the romance. Since this is a setup book, there’s a tendency to be a little

Another fun read from Ruby Dixon. I really enjoy post apocalyptic stuff so this is right up my alley. A pretty good world building effort. Decent rational for the whole dragon thing. The writing was very good. You could hear and see the dragons in your mind. I liked the interaction between the dragon hero and our heroine. The whole learning to know you thing. The thing that held it back from more stars from me was there were too many sex scenes. I felt that some more story could have been told ...more

Not as good as aliens, but still tried and true Ruby Dixon


So maybe it's the aliens that make the Ice Planet Barbarians series so good, after all. I mean this? It simply cannot compare. So yea. Aliens are better than dragons. But it didn't stop me from enjoying this book.

Series: yep

Sexy times: Oh yea. With a dragon.

Plan on reading more by the author: Certainly.

Synopsis Some kind of rift has rent the heavens and allowed the great coming of the kaiju to wreak devastation upon the earth.

*sigh* I could have loved this. But Claudia was a hard character to like. It took me nearly 60% of the book to warm up to her. Mainly because she kept doing that thing I hate. I dunno if it's a trope, but it happens often enough that it should be. She kept trying to escape a "not so bad" situation to run back to an "absolutely awful" situation. I shall explain without spoiling things, as most of this happens in chapter one.

Claudia is arrested for scavenging - which Ruby Dixon explains a dozen
Great new series set on Earth

I am excited about this new series from Me. Dixon. Though I love the blue barbarians from IPB, I am glad to see the a series that is back on earth. The beginning was a little slow, but that is due to the world-building since this us a dystopian setting.

The interaction between Kael and Claudia were interesting and those sexy times were pretty hot. I especially like the fact that there aren't 'fated mate's, but more of a choice - that Kael wants a mate and then

Well this wasn't as amazing as I was hoping it would have been. Damnit.

There were quite a bit of issues that I had with this but whatever, I didn't pick this up for a more interesting plot line. Despite that, it is a quick read.

I honestly don't remember much of this one tbh.
