Book Review - Fury of Fire: Book One of the Dragonfury series by Coreene Callahan

I have surprised myself in that I find that I'm fascinated by dragons!  Yep, Dragons! 

It all started when I was introduced to Robin Hobb's River Wild series, and it has continued with an amazing new book from author Coreene Callahan, "Fury of Fire," the first book in her Dragonfury series.

About The Book:

Commander of the Nightfury dragons, BASTIAN leads by example and expects his warriors to follow Dragonkind’s code. Honor is everything, duty no option, but when both dictate he be the first to take a mate and sire a son, Bastian falters. For the woman given into his care is most the extraordinary he’s ever met and even as she steals his heart, he knows birthing his child will take her life.

Nurse practitioner, MYST MUNROE puts herself on the line everyday, pushing past the limits of endurance to bring medical expertise to her patients when they cannot come to her. When a late night home visit turns deadly, she lands in the middle of a battle between two warring factions, dragon-shifters living in secret among humankind. Taken to the Nightfury’s lair, she must decide: return to the life she loves or risk everything to stay with the dragon-shifter who holds her heart.

IVAR, leader of the Razorbacks, hates humankind and the band of warrior dragons who protect them. To break the spell that ties Dragonkind’s fate to that of the humans, every Nightfury must die. When the last one falls, he will have what he needs to wipe the planet clean of an inferior race, and once again be free to roam the earth in dragon form.

I was blown away by this book!  Coreene Callahan's brilliant storytelling skills shine in this novel as she introduces her readers to a race of men - part dragon/part human, and the women who love them.  There is lots of action, adventure, suspense, drama, romance, and even, surprisingly quite a bit of humor to be found woven in among this story.

I personally can't wait for the next installment - Fury of Ice, due to come out in June.

About The Author:

As the only girl on an all guys hockey team from age six through university, Coreene Callahan knows a thing or two about tough guys and loves to write about them. Call it kismet. Call it payback after years of locker room talk and ice rink antics, but whatever you call it, the action better be heart stopping, the magic electric, and the story wicked, good fun. After graduating with honors in psychology and working as an interior designer, she finally succumbed to her overactive imagination and returned to her first love. . .writing. She lives in Canada with her family, a fun-loving golden retriever and, when she’s not writing, she’s dreaming of magical worlds full of dragon-shifters, elite assassins, and romance that’s too hot to handle.

My thanks to Nancy Berland Public Relations for the review copy of this book. I was not compensated for my opinion.
