Overview

One spark can banish every shadow in his heart.

The dragon shape shifter Thorolf is known for an impressive lineage, raw power in battle, and the impulsive indulgence of his appetites. The last has made him an outcast from his fellow Pyr, and even his hunt for their dangerous opponent, the Slayer Chen, hasn't helped. Seduced by Chen's ally Viv Jason, Thorolf finds himself drawn into a trap, as bait to lure his fellow Pyr to extinction. The only one to come to his aid is a woman he already knows to be a thief-does he dare to trust her with not just his own life but the survival of his kind?

Chandra has planned for centuries for a battle against evil that she knows will determine the world's future. She's never wasted time on the pleasures of the physical realm, much less experienced passion-until the firestorm sparks between herself and Thorolf, demanding more from her than she ever expected to give. Will the firestorm provide new power, or be a dangerous distraction that gives Chen the chance to triumph over the Pyr forever?

This edition includes a list of The Next Generation, as well as an excerpt from Firestorm Forever.

    3.75 stars-SERPENT¿S KISS is the tenth instalment in Deborah Coo

    3.75 stars-SERPENT’S KISS is the tenth instalment in Deborah Cooke’s contemporary, romance Dragonfire paranormal series.  The Pyr are shape shifting dragon warriors whose duty it is to protect humankind. The continuing series focuses on a dangerous threat against the Pyr who is determined to destroy the last of the dragons and their mates. This is Thorolf and Chandra’s storyline.
    Thorolf has been missing for twenty two months and in all the time no one had considered that perhaps he was in trouble. When Erik, the leader of the Pyr, sent Thorolf away for revealing their existence to humans, no one suspected that Thorolf would walk into a trap that could very well bring about the demise of the dragons on earth.  An ancient dragon whose need for power and Dragon’s Blood elixir will target the easy going Thorolf using a seductive female as the bait-one that is not Thorolf’s intended mate.

    Deborah Cooke pulls the reader into a storyline that is the beginning of the end. SERPENT’S KISS is the second to last instalment in the Dragonfire series and with it comes the conclusion to a battle that has raged between the Slayers and the Dragons for most of the series and throughout each consecutive instalment. SERPENT’S KISS focuses on the possible demise of the race of dragons; the battle between good and evil; and a mythological storyline about a warrior huntress whose destined mate has been drawn to the dark side without his consent. There are many references to Norse mythology and the interference of the gods in human evolution.
    The storyline is slow to build and the relationship between our leading couple takes a back seat to the overall premise.  There is very little romance and the attraction between Thorolf and Chandra felt forced-there was the instant attraction of the firestorm but the reality of the situation was more chemical than physical. I did not get the impression that love was in our couple’s future.  Chandra continued to push Thorolf away and in the end, Thorolf discovered that Chandra had been lying to him about her true intent.
    SERPENT’S KISS is a story about betrayal and family; power and greed. Most of the previous storyline characters play a secondary role throughout the novel. Erik will once again question his ability as the leader of the Pyr but it will take the collective of dragons to save one of their own from himself and Slayer Chen.
    I did have one concern and it involves the title and the cover image. Serpent's Kiss by Thea Harrison/Serpent's Kiss by Deborah Cooke both involve dragon shifters and both covers use Sam Bond as the cover model.  Initially I thought this was a re-release thinking I had previously read the story then realized it was a new release from Deborah Cooke.  I am wondering how many other readers had a moment of confusion with the duplicity of the title and image?

    Highly Recommended

    I have enjoyed all the books in this series. This book is no exception. I just wish they would keep going with the story line. This is the next to last book in this series. If you have not read the other books in this series I suggest you do. If you have read the others you will not be disappointed, just sad to know it is the next to last book.
