About the Author

As the only girl on all-guys hockey teams from age six through her college years, Coreene Callahan knows a thing or two about tough guys and loves to write about them. Call it kismet. Call it payback after years of locker room talk and ice rink antics. But whatever you call it, the action better be heart stopping, the magic electric, and the story wicked good fun.

After graduating with honors in psychology and working as an interior designer, Callahan finally succumbed to her overactive imagination and returned to her first love: writing. And when she’s not writing, she is dreaming of magical worlds full of dragon-shifters, elite assassins, and romance that’s too hot to handle. Callahan currently lives in Canada with her family and her writing buddy, a fun-loving golden retriever.

Great second book of the Dragonfury series. Coreene Callahan does a wonderful job of making these characters come to life. Well-paced action. Cannot wait for the third book!

The second book in the Dragonfury trilogy starts right up where Fury of Fire left off. Detective Angela Keene had been captured by the Razorbacks¿ a segment of the half-dragon half-human species that humans aren¿t aware of¿to be used in a breeding program. As she looks for an escape, Rikar, a member of the Nightfuries¿small group of warriors that regularly fight the Razorbacks in order to keep their species a secret from the humans¿is desperate to save the woman he¿d only met once, but felt a deep connection to.At the same time Angela¿s partner, Mac, is experiencing his own physical problems as the dragon DNA he didn¿t know he carries, activates after seeing a dragon when the precinct was attacked in the last book. He too is desperate to find the partner he thinks of as his little sister.The story itself is decent, although at times it still feels like I¿m reading the work of another popular author. This aspect is easier to let go of in this book then it was in the first one because we aren¿t really faced with any new similarities to the other author¿s world than we hadn¿t been exposed to in the prior book; which was rather jarring. However I¿ve got the same complaint with this writing as I do with the other author¿s. While a good job is done with the character building, they come across with the same voice due to the thoughts loaded with metaphors and the use of name brands to identify items. A couple of examples are Otis for elevator, and the brand of jeans I¿ve never heard of instead of just saying jeans. It¿s difficult to believe that all of these people think in the same manner. We are still missing a great deal of information I¿d hoped would be explained in this book such as the approximate size of the dragons. We seem to get contradictory information as they can swat railroad cars around with their tails yet can land on an apartment balcony or be in a regular-sized room if their wings aren¿t unfurled. How long does the average dragon live? How old are these particular guys? How does the Nightfury group make their money to furnish what they have along with all of their technology? We were told in the last book how the Razorbacks use unscrupulous manners to make theirs and since the Nighfuries are the good guys, well, it makes you wonder. And how does one elf do the cooking, cleaning and apparently the shopping, laundry, etc, since no other servants are ever mentioned and yet they live in a place that has more than 7 stories? Maybe these will be answered in the next book.Again, the story itself is decent. There is plenty of action, humor, sex, sexual tension and emotions. The characters are easy to like and appreciate. This is an author to watch.

I am a huge fan of dragons, so when I first got wind of this series I was really excited. I inhaled the first book, Fury of Fire and was thrilled to receive the second one through the Amazon Vine program. Especially since it focused on Rikar, I really gravitated towards his character in the first book and was eager to see how his story played out.We pick up right where we left off in Fury of Fire, Angela has been captured by Lothaire and Rikar will do anything possible to get her out. When we meet up with Angela she is currently under Lothaire¿s control and it was not easy to read what she has been through. However, it did establish her as an extremely strong character and able to think on her feet. I admired her courage in the face of evil and her ability to fight for her life and not just cringe and wait to be rescued. Meanwhile, poor Rikar is losing his mind trying to find her and deal with a new member of the pack. I will not give away the identity of that member, but I should have seen it coming and just didn¿t. Rikar is trying to help the new guy through the change and get Angela back. I liked getting to see him with the rest of the pack because each member is so unique and distinctive. Coreene does a great job of giving each character their own individual voice, so I never got confused about who is talking. I love that about her writing. While we get the point of views from both Rikar and Angela, we also get to see inside Lothaire and a couple other characters heads that you will have to wait and find out about. I know that having the point of view change so much might sound like it would be confusing, but it actually had the opposite effect. Seeing this world through so many eyes made the story flow very well and kept the plot moving forward. Each character held a piece to the overall puzzle and as we change point of views we get more pieces coming together to make the overall picture. It was a well-balanced book that did not linger too long on the action, the down time or the romance. Speaking of the romance, Angela had quite a few issues to work through before she could give her heart to Rikar. She had an emotional journey to go on before she could enter any kind of physical one with Rikar. And he was there for her every step of the way. Who would have thought that the guy who was giving Bastian a hard time in the last book would turn out to be just a big of a sap? These two were walking on eggshells around one another trying to feel the other out and see where they stood. They almost talked themselves out of a relationship before it even got off the ground, but luckily they let their guards down long enough to give their feelings a chance. It was a very different courtship from the one we saw with Bastian and Myst and I was happy to see Coreene change it up a bit to keep it exciting. The overall story arc with Ivar is still going strong and man is that one creepy guy. He is seriously twisted and I think he is just going to keep getting worse from here on out. He does not have as much page time as he did in the last book because Lothaire is really in charge of the battles in this book. However, I know we have not seen the last of Ivar and I am sure he will continue to cause problems in future books. He is a fantastic villain, easy to hate and definitely one I want to see brought down in the end. Overall, I am just completely hooked on this series! The dragon shifters in this world are fascinating and I cannot get enough of them. Luckily at the end of this book we get a sneak peak at the next book, Fury of Seduction, due out in October. I am so psyched to know who that book will be about and will be counting down the days until I can get my hands on it. If you have not checked out this series and are a fan of dragons and paranormal romance, then you are missing out! Make sure you read Fury of Fire first and then dive right into Fury of Ice.

These dragons got under my skin! I enjoyed very much this book! The Nightfuries are a bunch of intriguing warriors, each and every one of them is captivating and I'm curious to know more about them. I enjoyed the romance between Rikar and Angela; the fact that the author explores also the story from the point of view of other characters, like Tania, or Mac, or even the mean Lothair, brings a higly dinamic that kept me glued to the reading. I love Mac and Forge, right now they are the warriors that captive my interest the most; also Wick, he's so mysterious. Ever since reading book 1 I find myself imagining dragons flying in the sky, dragons fighting in the air - and WOW!

This is the second book in the Dragonfury Series. I loved it! Angela Keen is a fantastic character. She is a very strong willed, independent woman, who knows what she wants. She is a homicide detective, on the trail of a serial killer. I liked her when I met her in Fury of Fire. It was nice to get to know her better. Rikar is a fantastic character too. He is second in command to the Nightfury leader, and a frost dragon with amazing powers. He is charismatic, but slightly taciturn. He has the alpha male vibe going on, which I love! I got a copy of this in audio book, so I could listen to it whilst doing chores. It was narrated by the same person who narrated Fury of Fire. Benjamin L. Darcie did a fantastic job reading this story. His narration brought the characters to life.  The story sort of follows on from Fury of Fire, but introduces new characters and has a slightly different plot line, but with a common thread weaving through the tale. This gives the series a feeling of continuation. I was hooked from the first line! It was an exciting and riveting read! I really enjoyed meeting a few more of the Nightfuries. These characters are just as hot as Rikar and Bastian, and I am looking forward to reading their stories in the future. Especially Mac's, Venom's and Forge's. Lothair is the second in command of the Razorbacks, and is not a very nice person/dragon. He made my skin crawl! Ivar (leader of the Razorbacks) is just as sick, if not sicker, and is still doing his mad scientist experiments. The story is full of twists and turns, and has another fantastic battle scene (or two) which I could picture with ease. The descriptions of which was vivid and rather violent, but what else could it be when there are dragons involved? The story is told from several points of view, which made it a very interesting read. I must admit that I am not overly fond of swearing in media, and rarely if ever swear myself, but the f-bombs were only slightly less noticeable in this story. Although, it could be that I was becoming desensitized. I hope not, because sometimes there is no need for use of excessive swearing in books, or in life. I believe that using foul language is a lazy way of speaking, and shows a lack of vocabulary. Others may disagree with me, but this is just my opinion. Foul language notwithstanding, I am looking forward to reading/listening to Fury of Seduction, the next book in the series. Coreene Callahan has written a fast paced, sexy paranormal romance that kept me hooked from the first page!  Due to the use of foul language and the explicit sexual scenes, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, if you love hot and spicy paranormal romances, then this book is for you! - Lynn Worton

Decent Dragon Shifter REad  For me this was a pretty ho-hum, dragon shifter, paranormal romance read. It wasn't bad at all. I just was not compelled by the plot or the  characters enough to long to pick it up and read it.  The writer has some nice skills and frost dragons are very cool.
