If you’re not reading for the hot sex or the fun characters, then you should read this series for its worldbuilding. It stretches the bounds of the imagination! ~ Under the Covers
FIREDRAKE is book 5 in the Dragon Knights series and it seems that D’Arc is delving deeper and deeper into this wonderful word of dragons, magic and passion! After returning home after fifteen years, Drake discovers just how much he has been missed. His dragon partner, Lady Jenet couldn’t be more happy to learn that her knight has returned to her. However, Drake still doesn’t believe himself worthy enough to be her true knight. This disappoints Jenet a bit, but she will take Drake any way she can get.
First off, I LOVED JENET! She is such a sweetheart! I adored how protective she was of Drake and how sweet and childlike she seemed to be in some cases, but then fierce and noble in others. She was definitely my favorite character in this book by far!
One thing I loved about this book is that there are so many main characters, but what’s interesting is that D’Arc introduces them individually and then makes you fall in love with each of them AND THEN makes the character fall in love with each other. This is part of the reason why it takes awhile before the main characters Mace, Drake and Krysta get together, but in the end, I thought it was worth taking the time to get to know them individually first so by the time they fall in love, readers already have established a connection with them.
I thought the threesome relationship in this story was believable. Though Mace was far more easier to fall in love with than Drake, I thought Drake’s side of the story added more appeal to the story. It was enjoyable reading from his POV.
In addition to the steamy sex and the great characters is the fact that D’Arc seems to reveal aspects of the world with each new installment in this series. Things I never thought possible are being uncovered and it makes me wide-eyed with excitement to see the world continue to grow. In this book, we discover gryphons and learn what a Firedrake is. We encounter wizards and more dragon species! The world just keeps getting more and more interesting and I love how much there is to this world. If you’re not reading for the hot sex or the fun characters, then you should read this series for its worldbuilding. It stretches the bounds of the imagination!
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
