Happy Mother's Day!



I just received Kiss of Fire by Deborah Cooke from my daughter today. Deborah Cooke is a new author to me. It says on the cover that it is a Dragonfire novel. It sounds to me that this book is part of a series. Has anyone read this series and if so can I start with this book or should I read the books in order? Is there a continuing story arc throughout the series? It sounds really interesting here is the back blurb:

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...


So what do you think? I'll have to do some research on it!

I just started his last night. I'm not sure I like it. I like the premise...dragons, a nice departure from vamps and weres but I've already rolled my eyes at some of what the "heroine" has said...so, we'll see.

I'll be interested to see what you think!

Mollie said...

P.S. I believe this is the first in the series.

Oh wow, thanks Mollie. I will be sure to check out her website. I hope the book gets better :)

I read this book a while ago. I actually have a review written up, but never posted it. I'm not sure why though.... maybe I'll post it later today just for you guys! ;)

KISS OF FIRE is the first book in the series, like Mollie pointed out. While I thought the plot was a good start up for a series, I thought the romance fizzled out by the end of the book. I'm sure you're going to find the same faults in it that I did. But I'm curious enough in the story arc, though, so I'm going to give the next book a try before I give up on the series.

I don't have an answer to your question, but what a cool daughter you have to give you such a fun gift!

Jill D. said...

Christine, Oh you should post your review, I mean you wrote it already! I have found lately that the first book in the series usually has some problems. Wait till I post my review for The Darkest Night and you will see what I mean.

Carolyn Jean, My daughter is six years old and picked out the book herself. Go figure! Actually, the other day I was going through her school papers that she brought home and she had an assignment to write a sentence using the word "read", and she wrote, "My mom loves to read." It's nice to know that my family takes notice of my "likes".

I posted my review! ;)

p.s. I forgot to wish you a Happy Mother's Day when I commented earlier! So Happy Mother's Day!
... that goes to all moms who come through here and read this! :o)

Holly said...

Happy Mother's Day from me, too.

And I read Christine's review and am kind of curious now. You'll have to let me know what you think.

Happy belated Mother's Day :D

Your daughter is so cute and sweet :D The cover is very colorful so I get why she would choose this one :D

I have it in my TBR pile. i started it, but somehow can't seem to read it too much :(

Brie said...

I started this one as well and it didn't hold my interest (at all). I don't know if I will finish it.

Happy belated Mother's Day!

Holly, When I read it I will definitely post about it.

Nath and Brie, jeez this isn't sounding too good if you both didn't want to finish it.
