Book Description:

Some choices are hard to live with.

But some choices will kill you.

When seventeen-year-old Anna first meets Rakan in her hometown north of the Arctic Circle, she is attracted to the pulsing energy that surrounds him. Unaware that he is a shapeshifting dragon, Anna is drawn into a murderous cycle of revenge that pits Rakan and his clan against her best friend June.

Torn between his forbidden relationship with Anna, punishable by death, and restoring his family’s honor by killing June, Rakan must decide what is right. And what is worth living – or dying – for.

My Review:

I loved this book. There was not enough of it! I wanted more. I want more. I really look forward to reading a second one. I hope this turns into a long series. 

The characters are wonderfully written. The world that the dragons come from is well developed with a good history. The story is engaging and really held my interest. I could not put this book down. Well, my phone on which I was reading it, anyway.

I feel that there is a lot more to learn about Anna and her father. I want to know what happened. This book only skimmed over it and I am sure it is going to come up again in the next book. I can't wait to see how Anna and Rakan's relationship progresses. The chemistry between these two is practically touchable. 

I am trying so hard not to just start talking about the book as though everyone has already read it. I don't want to give anything big away about it. Gosh I would love to see this turned into a movie. I can visualize it all so well from the author's descriptions that I almost feel like I was watching it instead of reading it.

I totally recommend this book to anyone that loves fantasy stories, paranormal type romances, urban fantasy, or just a really good story. This is a fantastic YA book, as there are no really explicit scenes that would make me uncomfortable if my teen read it. It even shows teens being responsible with intimacy and being very controlled about their physical needs.

  1. My daughters & I would love to read this..I am so thankful my love of reading was passed down to my 4 kiddos!!

  2. thank you for your review - I'm so glad you enjoyed Dragon Fire!

    and yes, there are other books in this world already planned, including a 4 book series (the Call series) that goes into Erling and June's story as well as several other side books, and of course, the rest of what happens between Anna and Rakan and, eventually, more about her father :-)

    I'm am currently revising the first book of the Call series... and if all goes well, pub date will be in 2014!

  3. I love reading a book and want more when it over!

  4. Sounds like you really enjoyed this title. I don't read fantasy often, but I do like paranormal romance, especially those toned down. There is one author I do like very much in the fantasy genre and review for her often.

  5. looks juicy! The cover is so mysterious. I love a book that pulls you in so far that you don't want it to end!
    Movies are never as good as a well written many good ones are shred up on the screen. Though, I've seen some horrible books that turned out to be amazing movies.
    Gonna have a look-see for this one...I didn't look, but is there a Kindle version?
