about

One spark can banish every shadow in his heart.

The dragon shape shifter Thorolf is known for an impressive lineage, raw power in battle, and the impulsive indulgence of his appetites. The last has made him an outcast from his fellow Pyr, and even his hunt for their dangerous opponent, the Slayer Chen, hasn't helped. Seduced by Chen's ally Viv Jason, Thorolf finds himself drawn into a trap, as bait to lure his fellow Pyr to extinction. The only one to come to his aid is a woman he already knows to be a thief-does he dare to trust her with not just his own life but the survival of his kind?

Chandra has planned for centuries for a battle against evil that she knows will determine the world's future. She's never wasted time on the pleasures of the physical realm, much less experienced passion-until the firestorm sparks between herself and Thorolf, demanding more from her than she ever expected to give. Will the firestorm provide new power, or be a dangerous distraction that gives Chen the chance to triumph over the Pyr forever?

This edition includes a list of The Next Generation, as well as an excerpt from Firestorm Forever.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Serpent's Kiss" by Deborah Cooke. Book 10 in the Dragonfire series. I read this book in February 2015. This was my review. I liked this book. I've always wanted to know Thorolf's story since he was introduced a few books back. I really liked the character of Chandra, who ends up being Thorolf's true mate. There are basically two story lines to follow in this book. One is Thorolf's background where he has been destined to save the <i>Pyr</i> (good dragon shifters) and the second is Thorolf possibly turning into a <i>Slayer</i> (bad dragon shifters). I was really intrigued with the second story line more than the first even though both story lines are intertwined very well. At times the phrasing of some of the paragraphs seemed "jumpy" (switching topic out of the blue) and I found myself re-reading some of those parts because I felt like I missed something. But I will say that part of the story is that Thorolf changes personality because of what's been done to him (I won't say what because I don't want to spoil it for you) so the "jumpy" parts do make sense. As for Thorolf saving the <i>Pyr</i> story line, that part I didn't really understand. I don't want to ruin anything for you but the destiny Thorolf is meant for, ends up being more about saving the world and humans more than the <i>Pyr</i> (as least, that's what I got from the story anyway). It was also thrown at you really quickly, like "oh this is what Thorolf has to do?" and then at the end of the book he goes and does it. The firestorm's sexual tension between Thorolf and Chandra was really good but I found the culmination of the firestorm was just OK. I was expecting a little more from the "satisfying the firestorm" scene because, through the whole book, Thorolf keeps saying how he wants to make it right/good for Chandra, and then BOOM, it's over pretty quickly. I really enjoyed the overall theme of the book which is Thorolf and Chandra wanting to be loved for who they are instead of being loved for what they can do for someone else. Overall, I liked the book. The Chen story line is wrapped up quite nicely and there is one more story line left to finish in the next book "Firestorm Forever" (which will be released May 2015) which is Sloane's book. I'm very much looking forward to the next book. (Supposedly, lots of stuff happens!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable read I liked this story as it was different fron what I normally read. Good fantasy stuff and since I know little about mythology but I had seen Thor "the movie" I was able to understand abit more about gods. I was left wondering about the sword left in the belly of the serpent. Is that an issue or does it all become clear in another book?
