Kiss of Fire

Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire, #1)
Kiss of Fire
Author: Deborah Cooke
Adult Book
(Amy's Review)
3 out of 5 Stars


For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth's treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth's treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin...
When Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of the tarot-but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind-or about to lose her heart...

Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr and a self-reliant loner. So when he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost to himself. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed-and Quinn realizes he must risk everything- even Sara's love-to fulfill their entwined fates...

I came across this book and found it intriguing because I've never read about dragons before.  It was a good story but I wasn't that excited about the characters.  Sara was a good character although for someone who was around mythical and spiritual beliefs from her aunt and mother, it didn't make sense that her character was so disbelieving of things that were happening.  Quinn's character bugged me the most.  He was so hot and cold.  For someone who met their destined mate, he seems so uninterested.  He vows to protect her but every time something happens to her he is never around, and pretty much just wants to get in her pants.  Yes the story changes towards the end but there is just that lacking connections between the characters.  The other dragon shifters seem more interesting and I will continue to read the series to find out more about them.
