“IGNITE is a pleasant read that I think loyal fans will enjoy.”
~ Under the Covers

As a long-time follower of this series, I feel like there is something comforting about reading this series. I enjoy the world and mythology, as well as the Scottish brogue that many of the heroes have. However, as of late, I have been beginning to wonder if it’s starting to lose its luster.

IGNITE is book fifteen in the Dark Kings series, so there have been a lot of stories and HEAs already. This book is dedicated to V and Claire and although I liked them, they haven’t truly shone to me. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve become accustomed to Grant’s writing so much that I’m getting immune to her tricks or if the stories themselves are becoming too repetitive and similar.

I was hoping for something a bit more with this book, but never really got it. The characters were enjoyable enough, and I always like seeing all the familiar cameos from the other characters in the series. But when that happens with every book, it starts to feel like a common occurrence and as a result, doesn’t feel so special anymore.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s still a strong romance and plot, but too much of the same pattern has been happening in this series and because it’s book fifteen, I’m wondering if we will get a change sometime soon.

Nevertheless, IGNITE is a pleasant read that I think loyal fans will enjoy. I hope that with the next book in the series, Grant can step out of the box a little bit and give readers something new.
