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

Roman and Sabine's story will keep you on the edge of your seat, and up late into the night. Will V finally get his sword? Loved this read. More clues are coming in, and the fae/druid enemy strikes again. Donna Grant' s Dragon Kings is a must read. She has created a world of Dragons, Fae, Druids, Reapers, Humans, magic, adventure, family, friendship, loyalty and betrayal, and of course love. The vision she creates makes you want to open the door and run in.

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.

The Dark Kings series is one I've been following for awhile now and I love those dragons. I was seriously curious as to what we were going to focus on as a story arc now that Ulrick's story had been told. We still have the Fae, led by Balladyn causing chaos. However, Balladyn seems to be more focused on Rhi. We also have the Light Queen, Usaeil. She's definitely a problem for the Kings now. But the big storyline is the wooden dragon found by Dmitri and the spell it is wrapped in that is steeped in both Druid and Fae magic. Vlad has been looking for his sword every time he wakes. It is his main focus. Roman decides he is going to make the trip to Vlad's homeland and help V look for it. There they meet Sabina and her brother who both happen to be descendants of gypsies from the area. There was very little preamble with the Kings pretending to be human. They were pretty much outed right away, and Sabina and her brother already knew about Dragon Kings so that part was easy. Ironically, as the story unfolds, the path of the sword takes them to Iceland, Roman's homeland. However, their path has been pre-destined. There are major forces at work. V finds that he is getting better along the way, thanks to Camlo, but that doesn't mean the magic is gone. It just changes targets. I really enjoyed the characters in Dragonfire. Sabina was a great heroine. She was human with great determination and an instant attraction to Roman. This kind of surprised me because knowing this book was about V's sword, I thought the love story would be V's. I think that the romance between Roman and Sabina was sweet. Don't get me wrong, the sex scene was hot. But the romance itself was good. The path to the sword kind of reminded me of an Indiana Jones adventure. The trek through the tunnels for Roman and Sabina, with it's trials and tricks had me on my toes. Sabina comes to a point where she has to face her greatest fear for her love. I have a same fear and I could completely understand how much it took for her to do what she did. Also, the completion of one of the prophesies was surprising for me because I didn't anticipate it going the way it did. There was one issue I had that maybe other readers of this series can help me with. I've never seen the other Dragon Kings use magic the way that Roman and V did. Creating balls of light, magically dressing themselves, etc. In previous books, someone has always been handy with a pair of jeans for shifting, but V and Roman were both able to dress themselves. For some reason, that drove me nuts. They did it a couple of times, but then another situation had one King providing jeans for another. It was kind of confusing for me. I knew each King had a power or certain magic, but what the Kings were doing in Dragonfire was beyond just their specific power. So, the consistency with the previous books had me somewhat confused. In Dragonfire, we learn bit by bit how powerful this force of the Fae & Druid (Others) power is. We even get treated to a bit of an introduction to the Others so we can start to put names to the enemy. Also, the hope that finding V's sword brings to the Kings appears to have a problem. AND the next pairing gets introduced I think. It left openings for the next book with the only completion being the HEA. I was definitely left wanting more. No cliffhangers, just a desire to continue on with each the storylines. Despite having some consistency issues, I really enjoyed the adventure our characters had. I

5 AMAZING stars Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog
PalmaMama 18 days 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.

DRAGONFIRE is the fourteenth full-length instalment in Donna Grant’s contemporary, adult DARK KINGS paranormal/fantasy romance series focusing on the Dragon Kings and the women they love. This is Light Blue Dragon King Roman, and jewellery maker /Romani gypsy Sabina Gabor. DRAGONFIRE should not be read as a stand alone as the current story lines continue to follow an ongoing series arc. SOME BACKGROUND: The DARK KINGS is a spinoff from Donna Grant’s DARK WARRIOR series which in turn is a spin off from Donna’s DARK SWORD series- all set in the Highlands of Scotland. The Dark Fae and their King Taraeth, along with the Silver Dragon Mikkel have declared war on the Dragon Kings by exposing the dragon’s existence to humankind. The last wars between man and the world of the paranormal saw a great loss of life on all sides but someone or something is determined to push the Dragons back into another war: Queen Usaeil of the Light Fae has set her sights on claiming King Constantine as her mate, and the Dark Fae want the Dragon’s hidden weapon in order to rule Scotland and the rest of the world. With the recent introduction of the Fae executioners known as the Reapers, the number of interconnected series continues to expand. Told from several third person perspectives including Sabina and Roman, DRAGONFIRE follows Light Blue Dragon King Roman, and Dragon King Vlad aka V, as they go in search of Vlad’s missing sword, stolen thousands of year earlier while V slept in the Carpathian Mountains. Drawn to Romania in search of Vlad’s past, Roman will come face to face with his future-Romani gypsy and jewellery designer Sabina Gabor. What ensues is the slow building relationship between Roman and Sabina, and the fall-out as their search for the sword reveals past events linking Sabina’s family and Vlad, and the powerful magic meant to destroy them all. DRAGONFIRE is a detailed and revealing story of magic, betrayal, vengeance and hope. With each instalment Donna Grant reveals a little more backstory and slowly exposes the conspiracy surrounding the fate of the Dragons, and the potential for war with the Fae, the Druids, and mankind. The gradual but deliberately slow, evolving series continues to expand, introducing new players and potential dangers as it meanders numerous paths taking the reader along for the ride. Light Fae Rhi continues to lament the rejection of the Dragon King she will always love; and Balladyn, now King of the Dark Fae, is determined to make Rhi his queen. The Dark King series matures and expands with each subsequent addition. For followers of the series Ulrik and Con have made amends forcing the series to venture into another direction as the Dragon Kings face an old enemy that is determined to control them all. The romance takes a back seat to the increasing prospect of another Fae/Dragon war-a war of which the world may not survive.

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."

Dragonfire is a heatedly passionate and wickedly mysterious work of pure bliss and utter beauty! I can’t express just how much I love delving a little deeper into the world of the Dragon Kings. There is no end to the breathless mystery, sizzling passion, and cunning danger that lies in wait for all who dare to enter. Falling into this exquisite world of stunning adventure and endless danger is an absolute dream come true for fantasy lovers! Roman will do whatever is takes to help his friend V reclaim what was stolen from him. He has watched his friend suffer for long enough, and he is ready to finally take the necessary steps to bring it to an end. Not knowing what is in store for them heightens Roman’s anxiety along with an impending feeling of danger along with so much more than he ever dreamed possible. Sabina has settled into a comfortable life with her younger brother Camlo. She does not fear what life will bring their way, so why does her heart skip a beat whenever she thinks of the future? When Roman and V cross her path, she is entranced and left reeling by their quiet yet intense encounter. Will the heritage that she has carefully tucked away be the only thing that saves her when unknown forces conspire to destroy everything that she has come to love? Will this latest fight of the Dragon Kings pull another helpless human under the devastating waves of this debilitating storm, or will the impossible happen and prove to us without a doubt that love truly does conquer all? Roman and Sabina are sure to steal your heart as they the very breath from your lungs. You will revel in the quiet defender and sassy gypsy as they leave you smiling and gasping as each step in their journey brings your mind and heart to life. What grows between them and knits their hearts together will touch the deepest part of your very soul. Love will awaken the dead and send their senses reeling for more. It will shake the foundation of your world to its very core and show you that it doesn’t destroy but instead transforms. This latest couple will prove that love is the greatest thing that we can ever share and it is the very thing that keeps us alive. Nothing is quite as refreshing and reinvigorating as experiencing another brilliant story in the Dragon Kinds series. Watching how the dissecting lines within Grant’s other series cross and merge with this one so effortlessly never fail to leave me in breathless awe as to her creative power and beautiful complexity. Even though I haven’t been able to read all of the books in this series, I have had no problem reentering at any time within incredible series. I love that you can gather any important previous information with little effort since the author highlights it as past memory. It makes the story that much richer and satisfying. If you are looking for a fast-faced, naturally transforming, and highly intelligent storyline then look no further than this magnificent series! Grant will delight your senses and challenge you every step of the way. You will find yourself an active participant in a deliciously addictive and highly creative adventure.
