Fire Rising by Donna Grant

★★★★  4.5 Stars 

This is the second full length book in the Dark Kings series, and (as I said before..) while I know that I should really go back and read the Warrior and Dark Sword books before I continue the series...  after reading the novellas and the first story.. I just love these Dragon Kings way too much!!! This book was really good. I deducted .5 of a star because I had wished more for Sammi. Her character wasn't as interesting as I was expecting her to be. She seemed too normal, nothing really special.. other than she's not attracted to the Dark Fae.. but.. why?? that made me wish there was going to be a reason.. maybe it will get explained in the next few books.  Tristan was good.. and I felt my lack of reading the previous warrior books.. a lot more in this book,  due to the fact that Tristan was one...  that said it was still a fun read and I am really looking forward to the next book.. don't want to spoil anything.. but I can't believe they just left her there!! Oh and I LOVE Balladyn! I know he's a Dark.. but I just really want him to have a story and perhaps get turned back to Light???  He's just got loads of potential I think!

Here's the blurb:

Tristan, the newest Dragon King, is having a tough time fitting in. Despite his ability to transform into a proud, strong dragon at will, no one knows where he came from or how he became a Dragon King, including himself. When trouble arises in the form of the mob, Tristan is going to have to put aside his questions and band with the other Dragon Kings to protect Dreagan. As if things weren’t complicated enough, he is about to find something worth fighting for more important than the Dragon Kings…

Sammie Miller, pub owner in Oban, has been scorned by her business partner—and former lover. Used as a front for money laundering with the mob, Sammie is in great danger once she realizes what has happened. Barely escaping, she plans to rest at Dreagan for only a day before going back on the run. When Tristan swears to protect her, Sammie thinks his efforts will be in vain—the mob is too powerful, and it will take more than the average man’s devotion to keep her safe. But the closer she gets to Tristan, and the more he learns his secrets, Sammie can’t deny that having a Dragon King who worships you, body and soul, isn’t such a bad thing…
