Kiss of Fire - Dragonfire, Bk 1
Author: Deborah Cooke
For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have lived peacefully as guardians of both the four elements and the earth's treausres. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among these treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to...  more »

When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a firebreathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind -- or about to lose her heart. 

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything -- even Sara's love -- to fulfill their entwined fates.

In this book, Deborah Cooke kicks off her pretty awesome Dragonfyre series. I picked up the second book first and fell instantly in love. I then read the third book and then the first book. Simply because that was the order I found them in.

I tell you what though, if I had read this book first, Kiss of Fire, I would've stopped right there. It sets up the story for an epic battle between good and evil, but lacks spark, for better terms. You need to read it to understand the entire back story of the Pyr and their enemies, but its not necessary. Its a slow read. Leisurely. But the passion between the characters is dim at best compared to the next two books.

I found Kiss of Fire boring and the characters juvenile.

For a hero...Quinn too often messes up in protecting Sara. Quinn knows his duty and desire is to protect Sara, yet he accepts a challenge from another dragon leaving Sara vulnerable. And that's not the only example of the hero being a non-hero and non-dragonish.

But I will give the second DragonFire Novel a try; my hope is that the series will improve because I do love dragon fiction.

Although I felt this book had a lot of promise ultimately it fell rather flat. The premise itself is fine. Ancient shape shifting dragons, called Pyr protect the earth and the humans in it from fellow evil dragons called slayers. Once during their lifetime they find their destined mate by undergoing a firestorm.

Unfortunately the plot dragged, filled with way too much action and very little interaction. The two characters ended up being very lifeless and it was hard to care whether they got together or not. The abrupt end to the main characters firestorm also seemed very anticlimactic and unsatisfying.

Honestly there is a lot better paranormal romance out there. I would say pass this series by and read something else.

I really tried but the writing is....just not that interesting...The premise is good and the characters could be interesting but they are pretty one dimensional.

This was the best book ever! Very fast paced from the beginning to the end.Lots of dragon lore and plenty of heat between the lady and the dragon. Great read and am waiting impatiently I might add for the next books that follow.
