Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a thousand-year-old secret. But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absent-minded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire...
When Dr. Faith Reynold stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears it comes from a dragon, she’s completely taken aback. A woman of science, there’s no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith’s curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She’s never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within, in Firestorm, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.
So here I am having read the story of Dimitri, the King of the White Dragons, and how meeting Faith, an archaeologist, turns his world upside down. Dimitri has one job to do and that's destroy the bones Faith has discovered; but Faith has a reverence for her find that surprises him and when old enemies show up, Dimitri doesn't hesitate to put everything on the line. Yet there's a mystery inside the cave, a long-forgotten secret waiting to be told and its discovery is only the beginning!
I'm a little lost for words here as I did enjoy this book but it's ending leaves me thinking is that it? Yes, I understood the almost insane attraction between the couple although as a romance it did feel rushed but Ms Grant knows how to build heat and boy do Dimitri and Faith burn! There's so much going on around them though as numerous threads are picked up with old adversary, Ulrik, still up to no good yet even he must watch his back now!
I'm sorry but I'm still screaming for the big reveal concerning Rhi, Light Fae (for now!) ally to the Dragon Kings and yes, Balladyn seems to almost have her where he wants her. Even more screwed up is the Light Queen and Con's relationship and trust me it's not a complicated world as each component is dealt with in simple terms, but it's just such a tangled mess. Ms Grant has added layer upon layer and as Firestorm ends, as a reader I kind of want to pull my hair out!
I've checked and there will apparently be about twenty or more books in this series which obviously means the big players whose books we really want are going to be a long time coming. Con, Ulrik and Rhi are looking like being near the very end, sigh. I have suspicions but obviously, I like others, have to wait and that's why I'm not sure if I will continue this series again or just wait a while until nearer the end.
Yet, I must state, I really did enjoy Firestorm, it's just the bread crumb approach and constant muddying the waters that left me frustrated.
This voluntary take is of a copy provided by the publisher and these are my honest thoughts.
