Donna Grant continues with SOUL SCORCHED the sixth book in the Dragon Kings series. With the heroine, Darcy born on the Isle of Skye, she possesses some extraordinary gifts. But her gift of fortune-telling has made her special because only she can unlock the secrets of a Dragon King. More on the sweeter side, Darcy is a little more subtle I think compared to the other heroines in the series. She is kindhearted and intelligent, which makes her admirable in my eyes. However I don’t think I connected with her as much as I have with the others for some reason. I think this is mainly due to the fact that Grant takes a slightly different approach in this book. While the writing and plotting is still excellent, she pulls back on the action and suspense in the beginning and opts for building that up as the story progresses instead of throwing the reader straight into the heart of the fire. That being said, I still very much enjoyed it.
I feel the same way with Warrick. Grant made him desirable and sexy but it’s more of a slow burn rather than a full blast of a dragon’s fire. Because he feels partly responsible for the trouble that Darcy finds herself in with the Dark Fae, he wishes to protect her and that kind of proximity will only lead to more trouble of a different kind.
While Grant always comes up with new and inventive ways to build on her Dragon Kings world, you can always count on her to deliver some enchanting characters and sizzling chemistry!
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!
