Passion burns hot in Dragonfire, the next Dark Kings novel from New York Times bestseller Donna Grant.

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. And 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 that 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?

Things are changing in the Dark Kings series. It felt like the last book, Torched, was the end of one chapter and this book the beginning of the next. I admit to be fascinated by the direction the series is going. The Kings have believed they knew who their enemies were. It's a long list but they knew where the problems were. But this author has turned the tables on her own characters. Broadening the scope of their world and realizing there is so much more going on, this book sets a new stage. And it is so much bigger than this one realm. As always, I really enjoy this world. I love fantasy that is tucked inside our own world, urban fantasy. This world does a great job of being the home to many different creatures while the humans go about their lives never knowing what's up. Adding to that world this time are the gypsy's. Sabina has never embraced her magical gifts but her brother has. Together, they open up this world to something so much more than it was. I'm excited to see what happens next. The characters are always good in the Dark Kings series. I wondered a lot about this book because it's clearly Roman's book but had so much to do with V. As I read it, I realized that the story of V's sword would take more than just V's book could hold. And it was the perfect place for Roman to meet and fall for Sabina. I enjoyed all of these characters. And so many of my favorites were also around as the story unfolded. They all feel real to me. I can so picture their home and would happily visit it. Roman is loyal to his friend V and drawn to Sabina. He's cautious but can't seem to resist her. Trying to understand her and her brother, he becomes protective of both. Taking risks and coming to terms slowly of who she is to him, Roman is an amazing Dragon King. As for Sabina, she speaks to my heart. Her devotion to her brother touches me. I admire and love her. But her strength to do what is right by Roman and V is a strength of character that makes her an amazing heroine. I am concerned about Con in this book. Things are changing there too and I hope that Ulrik can hold him together. Definitely has me wondering about where things are going. Reading on. I was very impressed with the writing in this one. To rewrite what the readers had experienced in the first 13 books expanding it and creating a new direction takes amazing talent. And I'm very excited to continue for many books to come. The books really should be read in order. But if you were going to start somewhere within the series, I'd start here. It's a new chapter. Old adversaries have been defeated and old friends reunited already. This one starts something new. Fans of the series will love it and new fans will definitely enjoy it. Compelling and captivating, Donna Grant has created yet another amazing read.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I think I want to collect this series in paperback!! The cover has a beautiful light blue dragon. This is the 14th book in the series. I wish I have read them all, but this is the 3rd one I’ve read. It is for adults only due to the steamy content. All of my favorite characters were in this book, and some new ones were added. Rhi and Eilish are awesome women. They are snarky and awesome. Sabina is just as awesome. There is mystery and adventure about the Others in this book that adds to the ever growing questions and what the Kings have to deal with. Sabina and Roman and put through the paces, and Sabina’s brother is sweet and has some amazing gifts. Roman and V are trying to find V’s sword, and they found some help with Sabina and her brother. As always with the Kings, there is a lot going on which keeps you engaged in their story. Sabina and Roman are going through a lot trying to get through the obstacles put in place by the Others. Donna Grant does a fabulous job to engaging you in the mystery and adventure to find V’s sword. I love that gypsies are part of the story, and they have gifts that they are using to help the Kings. She does a fantastic job with the dramatic parts where Sabina is involved. I highly recommend any of the Dark Kings books because they have adventure, shifters, romance, fae, Druids, and so much more!

On the journey to help his friend and fellow dragon king V, Roman finds a gypsy that he is finding really hard to resist. When Sabina was a little girl, her gypsy grandmother told her a story about how their ancestors stole the sword of a dragon king in order to save their people. Little did Sabina know, but that story leads her on an adventure that changes her whole life. I loved Sabina’s and Roman’s story, but it was really about half the book and not my favorite part. This, as with all of the Dragon King books, tells an overall story of the dragon kings. There is a lot of Rhi and Con in this book. I am DYING waiting for books (or hopefully it’s just 1 book) for these two characters, so I was really happy to read so much of them even though it was driving me nuts. This book also interwove characters from her Reaper series, which I absolutely loved. It also introduced new characters/problems. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Another great book from the series. A book full of mystery, unexpected events and searching for answers. Roman is helping V with finding his sword and their journey is leading them to Sabina and her brother who have a special sight. Sabina's grandmother had warned her about dragons but her gut and her brother action make her decide to help V and Roman. A journey full of unknown, finding of the past, searching for an answer, finding love and passion. Really great interesting read. Both Sabina and Roman likable characters who make reading even more interesting. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

I gave Dragonfire a 4-star rating. This was a well written 14th book in the Dark Kings series. I connected with the characters. The plotlines were well written with no lag or dropped storylines. I did wish that more explanation was given about Camlo and Sabina’s powers. And the end frustrated me. I enjoyed reading this book and cannot wait to read book 15. I chose to leave this review after reading an advance reader copy**

Dragonfire by Donna Grant Dark Kings #14 The first book I read in this paranormal fantasy world was in the Reapers series and I have managed to read all of them except the second. I came into the Dark Kings series on book 10 and missed the book that preceded this one. I have to say that though it was an exciting action-packed thrilling read I did have times I got bogged down in wondering who some of the characters were from what seems to be a “world” I am not totally conversant with. That said, I wouldn’t mind one day starting at the beginning and reading through the books in order. In this book we hear of many characters in the realm(s) but the main focus is on finding dragon kind Vlad’s sword. Roman, another dragon king, is going along with him to search for the sword that has been missing for uncountable years and is so necessary to the dragons. While in Romania they come across Sabina and her brother who are much needed on their sword-quest. They travel, encounter magic, have problems to overcome and eventually manage to accomplish what they set out to do…although at the end of the book there are still many loose threads to be dealt with before the series can be completed. For some reason this book did not hold my attention like some in the past have. I am not sure why but think it has to do with not having read enough in this specific sub-series to keep all the characters from all the various groups 100% straight. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I like to read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

Another Fantastic Dragon King Novel! Dragon Kings V and Roman are on a quest to find V's stolen sword. Due to V's amnesia of the incident, they travel to V's territory hoping to find clues when they arrive. The duo meets Camlo and Sabina while on their search. V and Roman discover that the brother and sister, who are descendants of the clan V protected, have information relating to V's curse and his lost weapon. V and Camlo work together to uncover V's memories, while Roman and Sabina, the couple of the story, descend inside a mountain for V's sword. The path to retrieve the Dragon King sword was tense, and fast paced. At the climax of the story, I was bouncing in my seat. Roman's clever Dragon power lends to his artistic tendencies. Sabina's creativity, although different in expression than Roman's, gives the couple a common interest. Roman's dominance induces fantastic desire during their intimacies. The spark between the pair is potent, which is a common thing with Donna Grant novels. I make it no secret that I am a huge fan of the Dark World series. The subplots continue to grab my attention. At this point, the recurring characters are as much of a focus for me as the main couples are. Dragonfire is the first novel since Ulrik's redemption. He played a minor, but crucial, part here. I believe his presence will be game-changing, especially for Con. I see Con reaching his breaking point, and that could be a very good, or a very bad thing. Every Dark King book is a comfort, and a curse, all rolled into one. There is an overwhelming sense that resolution is just around the corner, and I am eager for the good versus evil showdown. But at the same time, I do not want them to end. Dragonfire by Donna Grant was given to me by Saint Martin's Press, through NetGalley, for my honest opinion.

A beautiful and mysterious gypsy possesses the power to see into Roman’s very soul in this magnificently powerful and mesmerizing new Dragon King novel. Roman and Sabina are two very bold and convincing characters that burn with magnetic chemistry and reaches deep into the readers very imagination and brings forth gripping emotions and wonderful shivers. Their romance is one that spans the realms as they embark on a dangerous journey in order to find the Vlad’s long lost sword that could save the dragons forever. Exhilarating suspense and delicious shivers throughout this fast paced plot full of flying dragon and treacherous traps are sprung along with strength, courage and daring keep readers turning the pages and grasping for every last detail. Twist and turns keeps readers guessing as the Dragons discover that is way more to their enemy than they ever could have guessed and that events were set in motion eons before. There is no way for readers to resist falling in love with the sexy, powerful Dragon Kings and their mates because the author makes them so lifelike and the series itself is a gripping, pulse pounding world that readers never want to leave because it stirs the soul and sets the imagination on fire.

The next book gives us more and more about the new threat that is worse than the Fae, Mikkle, or Ulrik. They know that both Light and Dark Fae teamed up with both Mie and Drough Druids to take them down, but what they don’t know is why or how far they will go. In this one, we start to see the great lengths and for how long this new threat has gone to to bring the Dragon King’s down. Along the way, Donna Grant, I swear, is dropping more and more hints about who might be Rhi’s Dragon King, but I don’t know if I can believe what I think or is she is just trying to throw the reader off. Time will tell! Roman and Sabina’s story was just as entertaining and exciting as all the other DK books. I liked watching the interactions between Con and Ulrik, and Ulrik and Eilish both play roles in Roman and Sabina’s adventure. It was fun, passionate, intriguing, and the plot just keeps getting more complex and more dynamic. The scope that the Dark Universe has taken is just amazing to think that it all came from one woman’s imagination. So cool. And so good.

5 AMAZING stars Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog
PalmaMama More than 1 year ago
Who's the lucky girl to get an ARC? This girl! Thanks to St. Martin's for the opportunity. 3.5 stars for the relationship as it took a backseat in this 14th Dark Kings novel. 4 stars for the quest and the details surrounding what’s coming. Dragonfire takes place outside of Scotland as we follow Roman and V on the quest to find V’s sword. A sword that will bring all the dragons home. As they travel through the Carpathian Mountains they come upon a man who can speak to animals and his older sister. Sabina has been protecting and caring for her brother, Camlo, since the death of her parents. Aside from his gift with animals, he has a mental disability and can’t fully care for himself. Sabina descends from a Romani family and has the gift of sight. V and Roman soon realize the siblings may be able to help V regain his memories of when his sword was taken from him. Sabina and Camlo are immediately swept up in the search for the sword and join the Dragon Kings to Roman’s homeland, Iceland. As they journey into a cave, they realize that magic is at work as there are drawings that show events in the past and predictions of the future. What I liked about the book is that we get more information about who may be against the Dragon Kings and some foreshadowing regarding Rhi. But more information isn’t necessarily answers. Just more pieces of the puzzle that we have to wait to figure out. I also liked that we got more of V (guessing his novel is next) and Ulrik was a prominent secondary character. I wish that Roman and Sabina had more of a spark. As Roman is the Dragon who rules over the land of Fire and Ice, I found it ironic that there wasn’t more passion between them.

I am a fan of this series, but this book dragged on terribly to me. I liked Sabina. She wasn’t some damsel in distress, and she wasn’t rash in situations she was not educated in. Roman was cool, V was just kind of there, and Camlo was sweet. The problem was the majority of the book was spent talking about what they needed to do, instead of just doing things. I also thought it was weird that the conflict and the sword that needed to be obtained weren’t really about Roman. He was connected because he is a dragon and V is his friend, but it wasn’t his personal issue. Because it was so much about V and Sabina’s Romani family it seemed like V should’ve had a much bigger role in this book, instead hanging of around in the background like scenery or unconscious. Also I wish they said what Camlo’s disability was. I was also disappointed with the side stuff focused on the Fae. Usually those chapters have things occur that affect the overall story, but like the rest of this book it was just a lot of talking not doing. I’m not giving up on the series, but I do feel like this was a waste. If you’re a fan you could read the first chapter and the last two chapters and get everything you need to be up to date for the next installment. Finally I wish the writer would combine the multiple series. Because although each series focus on different species, the overall story is all encompassing. I wish there was a name for all of the species and the books were ordered by release date so a new reader would easily follow along. They could still keep the numbers as is, like how Sherrilyn Kenyon does with the Dark Hunter books and their offshoots.

Nice continuation of the Dark Kings series. It's heavy on characters, dangerous situations, and angst but light on the romance....which was fine with me. I thought Roman and Sabina were good together. This book is considered a stand alone, however, I've read the last few books in this series, and knew most of the characters, but I still got a little lost a time or two....although it did not take away from  my enjoyment of this book. All in all, I thought this was an excellent addition to the series and recommend it and the Dark King (and the companion Reapers) series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias.

This was my first meeting with the Dragon Kings. Roman has to go on a quest to find V’s (the basis of Dracula) sword stolen and hidden by humans centuries ago. They come across Sabina a Romani with the sight and her half brother Camlo who has an affinity with animals. Sabrina will become everything to Roman but he will not abandon his friend V. They must all work together to overcome the magic of the Others. This is an magical enthralling story which is part of a bigger series. You were given glimpses into past relationships and the more darker parts of the stories with light and dark Fae and the Druids. I throughly enjoyed this story and it would be well worth visiting the next Dark Kings stories. I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Science Fiction and Donna Grant is a perfect match. She writes amazing stories of which Dragonfire is the 14th in the Dark Kings series. Lots of amazing couples have fallen in love on her pages. That is the only down side is keeping them all straight. But I love the dragon tales the best! King Roman is on a mission to find a stolen sword and stumbles onto a gypsy and her brother. Lots of unique ideas in this one. Pick up Dragonfire and soar in the sky with it. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

This is book 14 in the Dark Kings series and you absolutely have to read the books before this one in order to understand the bigger story ARC that this series has been taking us on. This one is about Roman and Sabina. Roman has been tasked with helping V find his sword, and he thinks he has a starting place on where they should start searching. But during their search he encounters a gypsy, Sabina, who may be able to help them not only find the sword but tell them who took it to begin with. Sabina remembers the stories that her grandmother told her as a child along with a prophecy. But after so long she isn't sure she believes them to be true, and sticks with taking care of her brother and ignoring her gypsy heritage. But when she and her brother come across Roman and V in the mountains near their home, she finds out just how much truth there are to the stories. And how much her life with change now that she knows the truth. I loved this one! From the start I was hooked on Sabina and her brother is the sweetest soul! I love how he was with not only animals but with V and Roman as well. Sabina is a beautiful soul who believes in doing the right thing, even if that means that something horrible may happen to her. And the way she steps up is an awesome thing. Roman is definitely one those kick butt kings but with a sweet side. And I love how he treats not only Sabina but her brother. I also loved the way we get to see more about V and what may be happening on a whole with the kings and with Rhi. This series is definitely taking us on a voyage but honestly I can't wait to see what else is in store!

Dragonfire is Roman's story in the continuing saga of the Dragon Kings coming in at a solid 4.5 stars (rounded up). Roman is determined to help V reclaim his Dragon King sword after watching the suffering and pain V has endured for centuries. Sabina 's mother took her from the Gypsy family when she was a young child but she has always carried the oral history of her people and the dragon Vlad. Spending her days caring for her childlike brother, Bina never expected to stumble upon not one but two dragons in her valley. Attraction draws Roman and Bina together and promises to become something more as Bina and her brother help the dragon's find the sword. Danger and mystery abound as Bina's powers reveal an unexpected link in their past. The Others' magic keeps upping the game and threatening the quest and their lives. This story is a page in a long running series and would be best read if the reader has read at least part of the series. The heat level is not too hot with just the right amount of spice to keep the pages turning. Bina and Roman get a semi-HEA that is sweet but left with the cliffhanger of the Others'endgame still unresolved. Dragonfire is an action packed and magical story full of sexy dragons in a series that will always keep you coming back for more. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

Dragonfire (Dark Kings, #14) by Donna Grant .... This is Ronan and Sabina's story... Thanks to the publisher and #NetGalley for letting me preview this book. Ronan is a Dragon King who is helping V find his sword. Sabina is a gypsy who is helping with the search along with her brother Camlo who has the mind of a child...but can talk to the animals. This books has so many twists and turns some answers and more questions.... Druids, Fae, Gypsy's and Dragon Kings (oh my)... danger, mystery, laughter, tears and steamy sex all getting us to a HEA and anxiously waiting for the next book.

Three and a half I remember when this series started how exciting and different it was but after a few books if honest I really started to want more answers. I know I wasn't alone in this but luckily the author brought out a series about Reapers that coincides with the action and storyline here so my interest was re-awakened once more. So here we are at book fourteen and the enemy from the beginning of the series Ulrik has now returned to the Dragon Kings but still they have problems. One problem is V the legendary Dragon who unknowingly started the stories about Dracula and he's struggling against madness as centuries ago his precious sword was stolen from him. Now Roman has agreed to accompany V to his homeland hoping memories will return and with them the knowledge of just who stole the magical sword. Perhaps a Romany woman and her brother will give them answers but in doing so will it trigger a prophecy ? As much as I liked discovering how the author intends to continue this series if honest I felt a little flat reading this. We know that there are both good and bad Fae and the Kings really still haven't quite overcome the problem of the Light Fae Queen but unfortunately I was frankly bemused by how this story played out. So much has happened and there are still questions I as a reader need answering so to go off on a completely different tangent made me feel let down. This is a romance so obviously Roman and Sabina are tested but it's perhaps not as steamy as some previous relationships. I'm still wanting more from Rhi and yes I've got my own ideas about who broke her heart but if you are considering reading this for the romance then it does work as a standalone but as someone who has invested in the series it's not my favourite. Oh well perhaps the next Reapers book will further expand this world bringing me closer to the answers I'm dying to know. This voluntary take is of an advance copy I requested and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair.
