Kiss of Fate: A Dragonfire Novel

Author:        Deborah Cooke

Genre:          Paranormal Romance/Dragon Shapeshifter

Type:            Print and Ebook

Purchase:   Amazon  Fictionwise  Borders  BN

From the Publisher:   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.

Haunted by dreams of a lover who takes the form of a dragon, Eileen Grosvenor searches for the truth. She never expects to find a real dragon shape shifter, let alone one who awakens her passion and ignites memories of a forgotten past.

Erik Sorensson is focused on leading the Pyr against the Slayers when a powerful ancient relic reveals itself. Erik tries to retrieve it from Eileen's possession—and is shocked by a fury of passion. Her presence touches him in unexpected ways, reminding him of mistakes he's determined not to make again, and Erik is forced to make a choice—duty or love.

My Review:  This is the third novel in the series by Deborah Cooke and each book improves upon both the storyline and character development.  You really feel the burden that the leader of the Pyr, Erik Sorensson feels as he continues the fight against their enemy, the Slayers. 

There is alot of action and alot of romance in this book.  The theme of re-incarnation is introduced as well in this novel.  The leading female character, Eileen Grosvner, is a completely modern woman and she reflects the understandings and female strength that we have become accustomed to with today's heroes. 

The villans of this series continue to develope as well and you can truly understand why they are the villans.  They are selfish and self-centered to an interesting degree.  More of the myth of dragons continues to develope as well. 

I truly enjoyed this book in the series and will begin to read the following book "Winter Kiss".

My Rating:  4 of 5 Crowns
