It was a soul-deep longing, one that got into his bones and settled there, sending whispers of desire through him. The need, the hunger, grew tenfold with every breath. . . .
As a Dragon King, Roman is sworn to protect all mortals--even though they no longer believe in dra ...more
I enjoyed Dragonfire. But, I can’t help but feel like this series is being DRAGGGGGGGED out. I got to the 95% mark and this happened…
Yellow, emerald green, red, amber, bronze, deep blue, black, jade green, burnt orange, white, claret, turquoise, dark purple, ivory, gray, hunter green, steel, teal, orange, and many others that she couldn’t make out in the night.
But there was no mistaking the gold dragon.
OK, that’s 21 (TWENTY-ONE) co ...more
I remember when this series started how exciting and different it was but after a few books if honest I really started to want more answers. I know I wasn't alone in this but luckily the author brought out a series about Reapers that coincides with the action and storyline here so my interest was re-awakened once more.
So here we are at book fourteen and the enemy from the beginning of the series Ulrik has now returned to the Dragon Kings but still they have problems. One problem ...more
My fascination stems from not only the gypsy background, but I also found both siblings abilities to be pretty cool, especially Camlo's. He uncovered a lot in this book that we didn't know yet. While we got a lot of answe ...more
Roman and V go in search of V's missing sword. They encounter Sabina and her brother, Camlo. I loved Camlo. He was a great addition to the story. Roman and Sabina's journey to find the sword is full of adventure and near mishaps and sexy times in a hot spring or two. They get help from Ulrik, Eilish and Rhi. It's nice to see the other side of Ulrik, and my dislike for V is going away.
Now who the heck are the Others, and how long will it take to get rid of them? Hopefully, ...more
With book fourteen in the Dragon Kings series, Donna Grant returns with DRAGONFIRE. This book is about Roman and Sabina. Generally, I really like both the heroes and heroines in this series. They are strong without being so in your face about it and although there wasn’t anything specific that I hated about these two characters, I also didn’t fall in love with them the way I thought that I would.
I enjoyed the subtle differences that Grant added into this book. I liked Sabina’s backstory and ...more
3.5 stars for the relationship as it took a backseat in this 14th Dark Kings novel. 4 stars for the quest and the details surrounding what’s coming.
Dragonfire takes place outside of Scotland as we follow Roman and V on the quest to find V’s sword. A sword that will bring all the dragons home. As they travel through the Carpathian Mountains they come upon a man who can speak to animals and his older sister. ...more
Dragonfire was a pretty good book but it did feel like it was dragging in some areas. I liked getting to know more about the legendary dragon, named V, and I do have some favorite characters here and there that made me happy.. but the little drama or relationship testing was meh to me this time around. Maybe I need a break from the romance department?
My love for Rhi grows more and more. I seriously can't get enough of her a ...more
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I think I want to collect this series in paperback!!
The cover has a beautiful light blue dragon.
This is the 14th book in the series. I wish I have read them all, but this is the 3rd one I’ve read. It is for adults only due to the steamy content.
All of my favorite characters were i ...more
Oh how I love this series by Donna Grant. Dragons have always been mysterious. I loved watching a cartoon about one as a child. So it doesn't surprise me that I would enjoy reading about them now, as an adult.
This particular edition focuses on Roman and Sabina. Sabina is a Seer, if you will. Her family roam Europe as Gypsy's because staying in one place is too dangerous for them. The beginning of the novel has Sabina's Gran telling her ab ...more
Ulrik’s story (Torched) was such an anticipated and more-than delivered-tale of redemption for me, so I was expecting more for Dr ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The Dark Kings series is one I've been following for awhile now and I love those dragons. I was seriously curious as to what we were going to focus on as a story arc now that Ulrick's story had been told. We still have the Fae, led by Balladyn causing chaos. However, Balladyn seems to be more focused on Rhi. We also have the Light Queen, Usaeil.
Roman is the Dragon King of the Light Blues. He offers to help V, a fellow Dragon King, hunt for his missing sword. Roman and V begin their search in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains. While there, the duo encounters a Romani brother and sister, who prove instrumental in regaining V’s sword. Clues direct the group to Iceland, Roman’s homeland and domain. Danger awaits the four. Can Roman overcome the Others’ malicious machinations? Will he be able to protect Sabin ...more

Dragonfire by Donna Grant is a suspenseful adventure with just enough romance, angst, and mystery all wrapped up in a pair of breathtaking dragons wings. The vivid details pull you into the story. I am in awe. This is just magic.
Sabina and her younger brother Camlo are gypsy descendants. They each have a gift that they have hidden from the world. Sabina has been warned since childhood about the Dragon Kings wanting to take ...more

If you haven’t read Donna Grant, I can’t recommend The Dragon Kings highly enough. Dragons, Fae, Druids, Humans, Reapers, Death herself, adventure, family, trust, betrayal, romance, love, the Dragon Kings has it all and Donna gives us a world we can only dream of seeing.
Roman is always making sure his woman doesn't neglect the important things, “doona wait to tell me you need food or water. I tend to forget such things.” Roman really is all for his woman, "Roman paused in buckling his sporran. He grinned when he saw her staring. “If it makes you look at me like that, then I certainly will, lass.” I liked this book, I loved Roman.

So, what did I like about it?
I’ve only read one other book in Donna Grant’s Dark Kings series (Heat - Dark Kings #12) but I enjoy the way that she tells her stories, the pace her plots develop and the fantasy world that she has created. I like that she gives us a prologue to set up what happened in the past as well as an epilogue to whet our appetites for future books.
I enjoyed the mystery aspect of this story and the way our l ...more
I had read a couple in this series years ago so I was a little lost. The extra characters and viewpoints made this a complex story that was only in part about the main characters. I enjoyed their story and would focus on just those parts if I read this again.
Left with lots of questions and side characters hanging.
In addition to her novels, Donna has written short stories, novellas, and novelettes for digital-first and print release. She has been dubbed as giving the “paranormal genre a burst ...more
