If she believed in destiny, she would believe they were meant for each other.
But that fire was put out long ago. . .

Living among the Dragon Kings, Cain has spent lifetimes learning to distrust both mortals and Fae. He is a warrior born—and every instinct demands that he fight to keep his own kind safe. But when a fringe member of the Dark Fae contacts the Kings with an

4.5 stars

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! So much stuff happens, but no spoilers here....

Cain and Noreen are perfect for an enemies to lovers story. Noreen is part of the Others, or is she? Great romance between the two of them. Plus we find out what happened to UB!tch, Rhi, and Balledyn. We learn more about Moreann and the Others. Erith and the Reapers make several appearances. Of course, the bad gal gets away. We are so close to finding out who Rhi's Dragon King is....

Flame was a great enemies-to-lovers story! Noreen and Cain were a whirlwind of attraction, and then...BOOM! I don’t know why I never see certain surprises coming! But darned, if I don’t dive right in and consume them like really good cookies!

I want to say Grant has hit the pinnacle of this long running storyline, but you never know with her characters and this is by far one of the juiciest plots I’ve read in a good while! I’ve long been intrigued by the twists her stories take, but holy smokes!

I fell in love with the Dark Kings series and have devoured every one of them. Then I went back and read the series that came before it and all the other spin-offs. Of course, I devoured this one. I so enjoyed Cain and Noreen's story.

I admit to be unhappy about this being the next to the last in the series. I do hope more spin-offs happen in the world. I enjoy it too much to leave it. At least there is rereading that can take me back here.

This book has the same great writing as you'd expect from

Now it is (in)official. The pairing for the last book in the series should be clear. And if there is one person who can handle Con and put him in his place, it is Rhi. But ... he has a long way to go (with Rhi and with me). He needs to do some groveling and maybe take a sanitizing bath (just to be sure).
I really want to know what is going on in that mind of his, why he chose Usaeil, what did Inen tell him back then that made him end the relationship, why did Usaeil never indulge in the fact that

My review will be live on donnasbookblog on publication day - 30th June 2020!

I was really looking forward to reading this book!!

Usually I can't put the books down in this book series but this book was not like that for me. I will be honest in that as soon as I see a Donna Grant book has been released I am straight in to reading it, and I will put down my current read to start any of her new releases, and I did the same with this one - but I found this to be a much slower start to the story than

This series keeps getting better and all the twists and turns in the story line keep you on your toes. Noreen is a dark Fae that has been part of the Others, the not so nice group after the Dragon Kings, but she’s experienced a recent change of heart. After sending an anonymous email to the Dragon Kings she thinks she’s done but lo and behold they send one of their own out to investigate. Cain seems interested in Noreen, feeling she’s telling the truth about her regret. Along their journey to ...more

I have to admit that I've never read the prior Dark Kings novels but I had an opportunity to review and ARC from NetGalley and I took it. And oh my goodness, what have I been missing? This was a fast moving, interesting and great story. I think that people who have kept up with the story would probably understand all the twists a little better than me and know the characters who keep popping up but I'm not going to blame the author for my failings. What I do know that even with my limited ...more

This ARC was received through NetGalley for an honest review, any and all opinions are strictly my own and no way reflect the opinions of the author or the publisher.

This rollercoaster of ride begins with a Dark Fae, Noreen, sending a warning email to Dreagan which is read by Cain. After meeting Noreen, Cain has to hide her from the Others which becomes problematic since she is being tracked. Once she is safe and the beans begin to spill about the Others, other revelations begin coming to

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

Wow, what a twisted story and story line! Just when you think you know what is going on, there is another secret revealed, and then another, this book was so hard to put down as you keep learning more about the Others and how they had a hand in past battles!

Noreen and Cain seem so great together but they have a long road to get past the wide divide between a former Other and a Dragon King. Trying hard not to give away any spoilers as this is one

Noreen is a Dark Fae and is a part of the Others, a group wanting to destroy the dragons. She has a harbored a hatred against the Dragon Kings because they killed her parents.

He goes to meet the whistleblower and finds Noreen. Cain must hide Noreen to keep the emperess of the Druids/ Others from killing Noreen. She tells ...more

I really liked the world and all the different characters and what they were but I think you definitely need to read the many books that are in the series to really understand everything going on. I did enjoy the conflict and the Dragon Kings are definitely awesome and having Dark fae and Light was interesting too. The romance was actually what I didn't enjoy, it was too insta-lovey for my taste, I think they knew each other for a day and already were in love. I know not much time passed when ...more

OMG...I could not put this book down. There was so much happening, I know I will need to do a re-read and take my time the second time around. There was love, romance, betrayal, alliances and the King of Dragon Kings, breaking down, behind closed doors. If you are looking for an excellent PNR, I highly recommend this series. Although you can start with the Dark Kings, I suggest to start at the beginning with The Dark Sword". Check out Donna Grant's website "Mother of Dragons" for the reading ...more

This is the 17th book in this series and the next book is the last book in this series. In this book the author starts tying up lose ends and gives the reader more background information about the Dragon Kings, the Faye and the others. I have loved this series and could not put this book down. I kept trying to turn the kindle page as I did not think I was at the end of this book and I wanted more. I am hoping for more spin-off books to this series as I do not want it to end. Highly recommend ...more

Flame is amazing. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more. There is so much content in this book and I don't want to spoil any of it but know that you can NOT miss this book. It is amazing. I know a lot of my sadness comes from how close we are to the end of the series. This universe is one that I am not ready to leave. You will LOVE this book!! Trust me!! Go, go buy it right now!!
Riveting!!! From beginning to end, Donna took me beyond the scope of reading and crash landed me right in the middle of perfection. Her twists and turns keeps you engaged and locked in every nook and cranny of her amazing work! An absolute must read!!

Amazing, exciting and heartbreaking. So many questions answered. No spoilers because it’s too soon but this was better than Fever and Fever was phenomenal.
