Publisher's Summary

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 dragons. But deep in the Carpathian Mountains, he discovers a beautiful and mysterious gypsy who possesses the power to see into his very soul. To reignite the fire in his heart. And to help him find the long-lost sword that could save the dragons forever.... 

Sabina remembers the stories her grandmother told her. Legends of dragons and kings, fire and ice. She's never forgotten the dark prophecy that filled her ancestors with fear - a fate they tried to prevent by stealing a Dragon King's sword. 

Sabina knows helping Roman is dangerous. He is a dragon betrayed and more powerful than any man. He could destroy her in a single fiery embrace. But how can she resist the longing in his eyes - or the feelings in her heart - when their destinies are bound by desire?  

Contains mature themes.

Narration made this unbearable

Goodness I don’t know what happened with this one but half of the characters narration sounded so ridiculous. I just couldn’t take it. I can’t even tell you how good or not good the story is due to the wretched narration. I will say that other than my disdain for the narration, the bits of the story I listened to had me annoyed at this new turn. Imma pass on this mess.

Awesome book with horrible narration..



Between book 13 and this one I have enjoyed the both more than any others. Every time Ulrik and Con are together it makes me so happy. Twelve books where Ulrik was the enemy then he wasn’t. Con and Ulrik’s brotherly love for each other is so obvious to those who have faithfully read the Dragon King books. And I just love Ulrik’s mate, Eilish. And it’s always a pleasure to see Rhi but I was hoping that she and Con were going to kill Usaeil, finally.

I adored Sabina’s brother, Camlo, who they called a man-child. He was mentally challenged but was in the book a lot since he was a seer. Fabulous character.

This book was about Roman and V and Sabina and Camlo’s search for V’s sword, that had been missing for thousands of years, and their flight to Iceland, where they finally discovered it was hidden, and all the had to go through to get it from all the traps the Fae and Druid set for them. And now that they think it’s over we meet two new villains. Moreann and Orun! Wonder who the heck they are?

There was explicit sex in this book and the F-bomb was used 15 times.

As to the narration: This was the worst narration given by Antony Ferguson. Every woman sounded sooo manly and the voice he gave to Camlo was absolutely horrible. Instead of Camlo sounded like he was mentally challenged he sounded like a buffoon. The 4 and 5 star reviews has to have come from friends and family of the narrator’s or Donna Grant’s.

Loved the story BUT the performance

Love the story but the the performance really sucks. Antony Ferguson has been great with all the other books. I felt like I was listening to hodor in the game of thrones Half the time and that really took away from the book

Amazing story, ok listen.

I usually love listening to the narrator on all of the audio books that have come out before this one, however, I simply cannot handle the way he voices female characters! If not for the distractingly Terrible portrayal a woman's voice, this book would have been super hot, and super amazing.

THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!

I am not one to write reviews but Im going to vent on this book and the rest of the series. The narration for Sabina was terrible. The Romany accent sounded more like she had an impediment. It was a struggle to get through. With this narrator in this book series, both male and female characters sound petulant due to cadence and inflections the narrator uses. Regarding the writing, my biggest criticism is that for the dragons being so secretive, they are really quick to give up the ghost and spill the beans as soon as the outsiders utter those dratted overused words in every book “Tell me everything”. Gah! I’m waiting for Cons story and Rees story. Seriously, the suspense is long enough!

A+++++ book. You will not be disappointed.

If you love hunky dragons, and adventure, this is the book for you. Roman, Sabina, V and Camlo have quite an adventure. We learn more about V and his quest for his sword. And how he lost it. I adore Camlo and his affinity for animals. I may have fallen a little in love with him. Roman and Sabina are perfect for each other. Roman and V's compassion and kindness towards Camlo made me love them even more. This book is amazing, just like every other book Donna Grant has written.

Good but not Great

This book was good but not great. The storyline was good. Seemed to be drawn out and without as much excitement as the previous books.

This book rocks and so does the narrator.

Seriously this book rocks. I loved the storyline so much I also got it on audible so I could hear the dialog between all the characters in this book. The gypsy part of the book was well written and informative.

Sabina and her brother Camlo add a uniqueness to this story because of their gypsy gifts that slowly play out throughout the story. Their living style and how they get by in their dailylife is written with such realness that the reader will be transported to their home and they will want to look out over the mountains such as they do.

In this story Dragon Kings Vlad and Roman are both key characters though the main character is Roman. The closeness of these two Dragon Kings is obvious in the interactions and respect they have for each other. The reader will discover more about the Others in this book and the complexity of what was done to Vlad in their dastardly plans put in place long ago to effect the Dragon Kings.

The plot is beautifully executed with great detail allowing the reader to escape into another world.

Fire and Ice… Passion and Love

I was introduced to this author as a part of the Audible Escape package. This book was purchased as both and eBook and audiobook. Dragonfire is #14 in the Dark King series; which is a part of the greater Dark World. Characters from previous books appear and longer subplots are formed and beginning to build.

Sabina is a gypsy with a talent and an interesting family history. Her ancestors are the ones who took V’s sword and with that starting the Romany tradition of traveling the land to stay one step ahead of an angry dragon. Roman has the gift of finding metals and is tasked to help V find his sword, but he finds Sabina on the way. They need to pass many obstacles together: physical and emotional.

As with all Donna Grant books in the Dark World series once you get in… it is hard to get out.
