“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.

About Donna Grant

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae. She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding. Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!

I find this happens often with such long series. Glad it’s still a pleasant read though.
