Présentation de l'éditeur
Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.
Now a guest of the Nightfury clan, Angela regains her strength as her rescuer, Rikar, the last living frost dragon, gradually breaks down her mistrust. Surrendering to her desire for Rikar, but still uncertain of her feelings, Angela goes against his wishes and agrees to be used as bait to lure Lothair into the open. As the battle commences, the true struggle comes from within: Will Angela return home to the life she loves, or forsake it all to be with Rikar?
Biographie de l'auteur
As the only girl on all-guys hockey teams from age six through her college years, 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, Callahan finally succumbed to her overactive imagination and returned to her first love: writing. And when she’s not writing, she is dreaming of magical worlds full of dragon shifters, elite assassins, and romance that’s too hot to handle. Callahan currently lives in Canada with her family and her writing buddy, a fun-loving golden retriever.

Obviously, these dragons aren't your normal fire breathing dragons. Actually not all of them breathe fire. Some breathe ice, while others acid or venom. But one thing's for sure--all the "good dragons" are very hot and very sexy men, when not in dragon form, of course. Some of these good dragons have formed a group and they call themselves the Nightfuries. They have more or less vowed to protect humans from their dragons enemies, known as the Razorbacks. Obviously, the idea of good vs. evil isn't a new one, but the war between the two groups of dragons gets hotter and hotter as each ruthless battle is fought.
The thing I love the most about these dragons, is their dedication to their mate. Their natural instinct to care for and protect their female makes me want a dragon of my own. This and the fact that they form some sort of brotherhood really reminds me of J.R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Obviously, the two stories are very different, but the feel and the flow of both series is quite similar. So if you enjoyed one, I highly recommend the other.
This second book of the series primarily concentrates on the story between Rikar, a frost dragon and Angela, a homicide detective. You would think being kidnapped by the Razorbacks would make Angela afraid of dragons, but on the contrary, she and Rikar develop a very intense relationship. I really appreciated Angela's doubts about this new relationship because it makes her seem so much more realistic, and as a strong female character, it reminds us that she's still human, despite her her battle ready attitude.
When every book in a series has different main characters, I really appreciate when an author doesn't forget about the previous main characters. In FURY OF ICE, Coreene Callahan kept us updated on Myst and Bastien's relationship, which burgeoned in the previous book. Even after this sequel, their story still isn't quite finished since the "mystical" bond between mates still hasn't really been explained. Myst's life is in jeopardy and the author is definitively keeping her readers on their toes by omitting such tantalizing information.
FURY OF ICE will take you on a chilly ride of dragon fights and dragon passions. Great characters makes this story worthwhile and the easy flow of dialogue and action has kept me interested until the very end. I'm just glad book 3 is only a few months away because I think I'm running out of good dragon-romance books to feed this new addiction of mine.
This book takes up exactly where book one left off. It's almost like they are really long chapters in one book. Each individual book has it's own conclusion, but the big questions are not answered yet. I wouldn't recommend starting with this book. You need to read them in order. Otherwise you are missing a lot of the back story.
Dragonkind. Dragon shifters, who are born to a human female. Their sire is half human, half dragonkind. Due to an ancient curse, only males are conceived. And unfortunately, their human mothers all die in childbirth. Something Bastian, and his Nightfury brothers are trying to remedy. With the prisoner they are holding they just might have their answers.
All dragonkind are dependant on human females. They feed off of their energy, tapping into The Meridian, a pure power source, that lives in females. Some are much stronger than others.
Book one ends with Bastian, the leader of the Nightfury, searching for his pregnant mate. Myst, has been taken, along with the homicide detective, Angela Keen. Angela and her partner Mac have been searching for Myst in connection with a homicide they are working. The rogue dragons, The Razorbacks have broken into the police station and taken both females.
Bastian's second in command Rikar, was tasked to find the detective, wipe her mind of all knowledge of their kind and send her on her way. In doing that, Rikar fed off of Angela. And he knew right then and there she was his. He would have to find a way to make her want him as much as he wanted her.
Myst and Angela were taken by Lothair, the second to the leader of the Razorbacks, Ivar. Ivar has been collecting females with a high power signature, planning to experiment on them. He's trying to breed females. So his kind would not be dependant on human females for their feedings.
Angela escapes the Razorbacks. But Lothair has damaged her. Both physically and emotionally. She is in bad shape when Rikar finds her. But he has her. Now all he has to do is prove to her he is a male of worth. And not one that is going to hurt her further.
There is also a small sub plot involving Angela's partner, Mac. After the attack where Myst and Angela were taken, Mac is not doing well. He was hit by something nasty that the dragon spit at him. Now he's in for a really wild ride. His life is not going to ever be the same.
I like this series. I know from reading other reviews, that some don't like them because they are similar to the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. I've read those books as well. And yes there are similarities. But they are different. This series is very well written, I was fully immersed into this world immediately. The characters are real and the more I read, the deeper I sank into their world. I look forward to reading the next one.
