Winged monsters have been seen in the skies, and a pestilence follows in their wake, threatening the very survival of mankind. Only the crew of the Blood Hunter knows where they come from, and only one man has the power to send them back—Thorne, a human/dragon hybrid in possession of mental powers beyond comprehension.

Candace Decker doesn’t need anyone to look after her—she’s a badass werewolf more than capable of protecting herself and those she loves. All the same, she’s always been drawn to Thorne’s strength. In an uncertain world, he’s the one man who makes her feel safe. And what Candy wants, she usually gets.

But while Candy is tenacious, Thorne’s willpower has been honed over ten thousand years. He might want her, but the last thing he needs is an infatuation with a young, impetuous werewolf. Candy makes him lose control, and that could have disastrous consequences.

As the threat escalates and they become separated by time and space, Candy must find a way back to him, because while Thorne alone has the power to defeat the dragons, only together can they finally bring peace to the universe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-adventure, action, romance 4.25 stars--FLYING THROUGH FIRE is the sixth installment in Nina Croft’s adult DARK DESIRES multi-genre paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi romance series focusing on the crew of the space ship Blood Hunter. This is werewolf shifter Candace Decker, and human/dragon hybrid Thorne’s story line. FLYING THROUGH FIRE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty although I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion. FLYING THROUGH FIRE advances the series several years. Candace is the daughter of Jonathon and Alexia (Deadly Pursuit #2). Some background: 1000 years after Earth’s demise, the ruling Collective, and the self-proclaimed Church of Everlasting Life played a major role in the control of space. The Collective controlled the rights to the rare radioactive element known as Meridian-that will bestow immortality on those who can afford the price but with its discovery also comes death and destruction. The Church had been in the business of exterminating the genetically modified beings-considering them abominations and a sin against God- but an illness linked to the radioactive element has all but wiped out the population on a number of the planets including many members of the CoEL. Told from several third person points of view FLYING THROUGH FIRE follows Candace Decker as she hunts for the man responsible for destroying her parent’s life. Never far behind, the winged human/dragon hybrid, and Candace’s protector Thorne, follows hoping to bring Candace under his control. But an attack of a different kind finds the intrepid crew of the Blood Hunter protecting one of their own when the original dragons known as the ‘old ones’ want something the crew is not willing to give up. What ensues is the building relationship between Thorne and Candace, and the fight to save thousands of lives. The relationship between Thorne and Candace is a protector to friends to lovers relationship that began when Thorne was tasked with protecting a much younger Candace from the world around her. When her parents were taken into custody and her mother forced to return to the Church of Everlasting Life, Candace and her twin brother Angel set out on their own. Years later Thorne would bring Candace and Angel under his wing, and find himself falling for the werewolf shifter that called to his heart. The $ex scenes are intimate without the over the top graphic, erotic element. Thorne is the eldest of his kind, and with it comes great power-power of which he is often unaware. Candace is an independent, young woman who has fallen in love with the hybrid dragon-a dragon she believes would never fall in love with her. All of the previous story line couples play secondary and supporting roles including Devlin and Saffira (Temporal Shift 4) as Saffira becomes the target of the marauding dragons. Planets are destroyed; lives are wiped out of existence as the dragons search for Saffira and the crew of the Blood Hunter. The world building continues to pull the reader through wormholes, black holes and onto poisonous planets; time travel; supernatural and mystical beings, telepathic communication, and artificial intelligence; cyborgs and the mind of the collective- Star Trek meets Star Wars in an epic battle for space, time and everything in between. We are introduced to new species, and hybrid humans, as well as the existence of werewolves, vampires, and supernatural beings whose DNA has been crossed with various flora and fauna. For readers who are not fans of the sci-fi genre the DARK DESIRES series does not read like the usual sci-fi story lines but more along the lines of paranormal /fantasy romance. FLYING THROUGH FIRE is a story of adventure; action, romance, betrayal and trust. The premise is exciting and entertaining; the characters are colorful, memorable, spirited and enchanting; the romance is emotional and passionate. Nina Croft’s DARK DESIRES series is addicting, cleverly written, and impossible to put down.
