Overview

A clandestine race of half-dragon, half-humans known as dragon-shifters lives among us. Bastian, leader of the Nightfury dragon clan, is sworn to protect humankind at all costs. For him, honor and duty always come first. When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die. Myst, the woman given into his care, is the most extraordinary he’s ever met, and though he can’t bear the thought of harming her, he is bound by duty.

Myst loves her life in the human world, but Bastian has captured her heart in an instant of electric connection. But Bastian and his warriors are in the middle of a deadly battle with the Razorback dragon-shifters, intent on killing every Nightfury clan member — and the humans they protect — the fate of their world and ours hangs in the balance.

An extraordinary blend of action, fantasy, and steamy romance, Fury of Fire brings to life a dangerous new world intertwined with the survival of humanity, all while exploring the meaning of honor and the nature of true love.

    Bastian and Rikar are dragons appearing in the guise of humans.

    Bastian and Rikar are dragons appearing in the guise of humans. They are on a mission to save their race from extinction, one in which they must unite with a human to produce more half-dragon-half-human sons. However, the focus of his mission is diverted when he meets Myst, a fiery woman passionate about her medical calling to save every precious life. While she struggles to save the life of a mother and child, the scent of death and life reaches both dragons. They rush to the scene where Myst is able to save the child but not the mother. Another danger looms, however, Bastian besotted with this woman and putting off the deed he knows he must accomplish and instead taking Myst and the baby to safety!

    Other dragons under the leadership of Ivar do display that shred of compassion and care. For Ivar is in charge of constructing a lab where his plans will develop to threaten the existence of all humanity. Thus begins the race to survival for every character in this fast-paced thriller story. These are dragons that possess the power to freeze or burn whatever thwarts their purposes, a mystery humans don't understand but are attempting to figure out and conquer.

    The feelings grow between Myst and Bastian, in between numerous battles involving Ivar and his cronies and humans. Many lives are lost, but the fire between Myst and Bastian grows and grows and grows until it is banked in their fiery union, where the unexpected happens. Sex with a dragon is also consuming, satisfying both but also increasing the desire for more to an almost unbearable crescendo!

    How will it all be resolved or ended? Coreene Callahan has written a fantasy novel sure to thrill lovers of this genre, as well as those who love a fierce, lusty romance story!

    A Fantastic Book to read

    Contemporary, Paranormal


    Myst Munroe is a nurse that cares about her patients. When one of them is having some health problems Myst goes out to check on her patient and ends up in more trouble and dealing with a world she never dreamt existed. Now Myst is going to have to find a way of dealing with this new world and figure out if her old live even exists anymore. Of course meeting Bastian is making her wonder if she even wants to go back to her old life.

    Bastian has been told that it is time for him to find a mate and sire a son. Bastian also knows for that to happen the human woman will die giving birth. Bastian also knows that being the leader of the Nightfuries, a form of dragon shape shifters that are sworn to protect the humans from the Razorbacks, a form of dragons that are determined to destroy all humans; he has a duty to his men to do what is necessary to make sure their line does not die out. Bastian would find it easier to sire a son if he hadn’t met Myst and formed an instant connection with her. Now she is in his care and he has to find a way to make sure no harm comes to her and also find a way to have the son he needs.

    Myst has found herself in the middle of a war between the two sides of dragons with her heart firmly in the hands of Bastian but she isn’t sure that is what is best for her. Bastian has never had a problem with putting honor and duty first before but ever since he set eyes on Myst he is finding it harder to put anything before Myst. She is becoming everything to him but what will the mean when it comes time for him to have a son?


    This is an exceptional story that will have the reader extremely reluctant to put down. The characters are very well written and will grab the reader by the throat and won’t let go. With all the action in this book it moves forward very quickly and keeps the reader engaged to the point they won’t want to put it down until the very end and even then they will hate for the book to end. If you like very alpha males that are very possessive of their mates this is one you have to read. The men in this one are over the top and extremely drool worthy. This one will also have the reader counting down the time until the next book comes out. This is one series you shouldn’t miss.

    Lara Adrian¿s Breed series with dragon-shifters

    Nurse practitioner, Myst Munroe is having a bad day and it is about to get worse. Myst goes to check on pregnant patient Caroline and finds her bleeding out on the floor. She begs Myst to save the child. 911 says it will take 30 minutes for an ambulance so she performs an emergency c-section and saves the child. Then her world gets really interesting.
    Dragon shifters are at war. On the one hand are the Nightfury (led by Bastian) who wish to coexist peacefully with humans and then there are the rogue Razorbacks (led by Ivar) who think that humans are pests only good for breeding and eating and the rest should die.
    Bastian takes Myst and the baby into custody while saving her from the Razorbacks. Back at the lair we meet several hunky alpha dragons and a beta elf (who I want for my very own). We learn about their world and Bastian and Myst fall in love. But there are questions and stories untold so this will be an interesting series. I liked that Myst was a strong woman who didn’t let the alpha male lie to her, and owned when she was wrong.
    As I was reading this I kept thinking of Lara Adrian’s Breed series. This is a lot like it only with dragon-shifters. It has room to grow and I shall join the ride.

    I was the first time I read a book about dragon shifters and I e

    I was the first time I read a book about dragon shifters and I enjoyed it, yes. The second half of the book wasn't as thrilling and exciting as the first one, it missed some more action, but overall it was a good read and, most important, I want to read the next books!

    Bastian is a fierce dragon, but also a good man. His protectiveness toward Myst and the baby was sweet.

    The secondary characters are interesting, each of the dragons has a special appeal and all are different and I want to know more about them.

    Forge, in the enemy's band, was also an interesting guy and made me guess he's more than just a bad guy. I'm curious about him.

    I am in love!!! myst is the most exceptional lead female I have

    I am in love!!! myst is the most exceptional lead female I have read about in years. the way the story unfolds is just right. dragon shifters that can only have children with high energy females. as great as that sounds each female dies in the process of giving birth due to the differences between them and their males. Bastian the nightfury commander finds Myst as she tries to save the life of her patient and her unborn child. after finding her Bastian must woe her to him before time runs out and he takes her to breed his own heir. love blossoms under the extraordinary circumstances that befall the two. this is the beginning of the Dragonfury series and it just gets better from here!

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I’ve seen different reviews for Fury of Fire, some good and some bad. In my opinion I really enjoyed it.

    Fury of Fire was a really easy book to get into. I liked how the author described each one of her characters. Even though, this is the first book in the Dragonfury series, we get a teaser of the characters that will be in the next books. We get to see what characters will probably end up with each other.

    Bastian is the leader in the Dragonfury clan. He’s got a lot of responsibility on his dragon scales. They’re in a war with the Razorback clan and because of this their numbers are going down. It’s up to him to find a human woman to mate and have a son. The only way to do this is when the Meridian axis realign, which is in five days. Bastian feels that he needs to be the first to do this since he’s the leader. He is a very strong take care of everything personality. He never shows weakness and is always there for his clan.

    Myst Monroe is a nurse practitioner. She really takes her job seriously. She has a very soft heart and tries to help everyone. She goes out of her way to make sure that everyone gets taken care of. She’s a very strong and independent woman. This is what will put her in danger and change her life forever.

    The way they meet is because of Myst job and her going out of her way to help her patients. Caroline is a young woman who is pregnant and has a rare blood disease. The problem is that Caroline hasn’t been to her appointments so Myst decides to make a home visit. Bastian comes on the scene because Caroline is pregnant with a half-dragon. It’s his job to make sure the baby survives.

    Now when they meet nothing goes the way they had planned. Myst has a lot of white power that Bastian needs to survive and he finds out that Myst is his mate. Myst doesn’t want anything to do with him because she finds out his secret.

    I loved how the author brought out each one of their personalities and making them second guess everything that each one had been told. Bastian finds out that maybe honor and putting his clan first isn’t what he always needs to do. Myst finds out that maybe her job isn’t what she should put first. Bastian has to decide if he can give up Myst’s life to have the child that he needs to make sure his clan survives.

    Fury of Fire is a story of not all things are what they seem. You have to make decisions. Not all will be good and how do you know if it’s the right one. I really can’t wait to read the next book. So happy reading everyone. I will warn you that there’s some bad language and some pretty hot sex scenes.

    Favorite Quote: “Master Bastian warned me you are very clever.”

    Dragon Shifter Fun!  3.5 Stars  I am excited to start this new

    Dragon Shifter Fun! 

    3.5 Stars 

    I am excited to start this new series by a new to me writer! I love dragons shifters and Callahan creates a interesting dragons. It is fun to
    see what different talents each dragon male will have.  There is a lot of humorous internal thoughts by the heroine that make this a good read! 

    The heroine in this book is smart and little bit quirky. Her reaction to all the things that happen is realistic. The hero is a ton of dragon shifter
     hotness with the weight of his clan on his shoulders.  The action is fast paced and engaging as is the love story.  They have a good dynamic. 

    I am looking forward to seeing the other characters get their own stories. I will be reading the rest of the series and already have the next
    one qued up. 

    What kept this book from being excellent for me is a lack of rerereadablity that comes from scene, moments, and dialogue that are so
    special of fun I want to revisit them again and again. Some of the issue here are character development. I can tell this is a series where the
     characters will round out as the books roll out. This will work over time but leaves this book a bit thin.  There is also a basic premise of the
     book that some dragon knowledge has been lost that is less than believable.  I don't really need there to be the crazed villain but that is just
     me. 

    I agree that there are lots of parts that are JR Ward like but with Dragons. Still, the book is enjoyable overall and I recommend it.
