    Usually I don't like to poke holes in books that I read, because I figure that since I'm reading fantasy anyway, I would allow for some level of imagination and impossibilities, and not care much about science or physics at all. So I normally don't argue over something being scientifically possible or not. Unfortunately, after I read 3 installments of this Dragonfire series, I came to the conclusion that the author seemed to be consistently inconsistent and it drives me bonkers. Please allow me to vent for a bit about this book...I know we are talking about dragons, which are mythical creatures, and we know that they are big and breath fire etc. On many occasions, the author would go at length to describe how powerful and vicious and big the dragons are once they shift shape from humans. However, how do you imagine that dragons, multiple dragons actually, fighting/moving in a normal building, or a residential home, or a bookstore, or the garage of a cottage??? Well, it'd seem to me that the author was so involved in her writing that she forgot that it'd be physically impossible to fit all the dragons in a small space. Well, not unless she was really describing 20ft high ceiling and HUGE places in all instances. While I was reading books #1, #2 and #3, I always imagined that they'd be squished and packed so tightly that they wouldn't be moving much at all??!!? And breathing fire too? Dragons, people, furnitures and all things in vicinity would get roasted!!! Seriously, other than the Pyr leader's home (Erik), which was described as something converted from a spacious warehouse, I just cannot understand the physical dimensions of this fictional world and it makes absolutely no sense to me at all.In this particular book, Erik flew his mate (Eileen) all the way from London, England back to his home in Chicago, U.S. in his dragon form. Based on the descriptions, Eileen was tucked snugly on his front and the trip took about 35 hours. Does this make any sense to anyone? Why in the world would someone choose to do that over travelling by an airplane? Although I have never travelled to/from Chicago & London, (based on my Google results) the flight would be about 8 to 12 hours, depending on the airline. So, even provisioning for flight unavailibility and having to wait another day (24 hours), isn't it a lot easier and less straining than flying??!! Sheesh!!! Oh, and let's not think about the flight speed of the macho dragon here. The distance between London and Chicago is about 7000 km, and to finish a trip in 35 hours, you're talking about travelling at the speed of 200 km/h (or equivalent to 125 miles/h). Wow, the freakin' dragon is indeed super inhumanly fast, and being sustainable for 35 continuous long hours... holy moses!!! Not to mention that Eileen's head would be blown off from the high speed air impact and being exposed in the air for that long!!!!!!I was hopeful that this Dragonfire series would improve, as was the case with some other authors and series I encountered, but I was disappointed with this book #3. The plot was fairly predictable and the characters were mostly uninteresting. The sexual tension between the male and female protagonists was mainly due to the so-called "firestorm" so they'd literally start feeling desire as soon as they are close and want to do each other "immediately"... so the element of anticipation, flirtation, the whole sexual guessing game was lacking. It almost leaves me feeling dissatisfied. The only saving grace was the sex scenes between Erik and Eileen, which I agreed were hot and yummmy. Also, the background story about Erik/Louisa/Sigmund etc was tragic and moved me in certain places. Oh, and I do have to commend on the "bad" dragons in the series - they were so evil that sometimes I liked having them around just to see some actions. Otherwise, I thought some parts of the book were boring that I would skim over pages at a time.Talking about "firestorm", whereby the dragon is destined to meet his "mate" and to have sex and conceive a son, it was an interesting idea at first, but by book #3, it got really boring. Every one of the 3 books I read so far had a prologue, which gave away half the story already. And the premise of consummating the firestorm in every book? Sorry, not enough to keep my interests. I don't doubt for a moment that in subsequent books, the whole "firestorm" and breeding idea would pop up again. After all, readers are not stupid and they see patterns you know!! I think I already mentioned this in my review of book #1 (or was it #2?), that the style, premise, even the characters of this book reminds me much of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R.Ward. I could see parallels, where the good guys fight the bad guys, and each good warrior finds a mate etc, with a major difference that BDB is about vampires and this series is about dragons and breeding. That's where the similarities end though. I sometimes wonder if I've been "spoiled" because I started off with BDB first and I loved that series, so the bar has been set high. So now whenever I read PR books I can't help but compare. I debated over 1- or 2-star rating on this book, and finally landed on 2. After all, I did like Erik's background story and that he was able to reconcile with Eileen/Louisa in her reincarnated life. Some of the "slayer" action was good too. I asked myself if it was terrible, and it wasn't as bad as some other ones I've come across. So to be fair, I am giving it a 2.

    If I could give this 10 stars I would. Absolutely spectacular! Any book that can make me cry is a keeper but any book that makes me cry TWICE in two different places is definitely going on my desert island keeper shelf.

    3.25starsVery usual for this series. There was too much repetition for my taste in the statements from the lead couple and I thought this installment too closely mirrored a previous releases. I did however enjoy descriptions of the dragons and Boris & Magnus’ villainy. (view spoiler)[ While part of me was glad for the continuity of the Dragon’s Teeth” thread I still wished there had been more distance between the related stories so that I could savor their meaning. (hide spoiler)]In previous installments, I was indifferent to Eric and sadly for me, my mindset toward him remained the same. I’m certain that he was intended to appear as distracted and apprehensive but for me it read as impatience. He just seemed to just wanna get it done and get on with his life. Also, Eileen read like the ingenue past her prime who didn’t know and her act did not play for me. I also didn’t feel the chemistry between then – they were just characters and didn’t flow smoothly – they felt forced. Never one for the damsel-ing, I can’t say I began to care for Eileen even a little. While in my opinion book 2 was better than book one, this one doesn’t seem to be as good as book one – mainly because I couldn’t get invested in these characters. It all felt too contrived and forced. That I not to say that anything was wrong with the excellent action set pieces or the strong dramatic thread giving more background on the Slayers

    This is the third book in the Dragonfire series and this time the firestorm is between Eric, the leader of the dragon Pyr, and Eileen. The chemistry is there between the two but could have been better. I have to agree with another viewer that I wish the dragons were more possessive instead of just standing on the sidelines contemplating if the woman will be his mate. It's a given they will be so why not make their desire for the women more driven. The war between the dragons, Pyr vs. Slayers remains heated as they disagree over the fate of humanity. The Pyr protects the humans while the Slayers want them dead. Even though I like the Pyr dragons, I have to say that the Slayers are also quite intriguing even though they're full of pure evil and hatred. The author does a good job making the bad guys really bad. As like the two previous novels, we are given more background knowledge of the Pyr, in particular, Eric. We witness his past and how it connects to the present. We also learn more about his son, Sigmund, who decided to become a Slayer. The story line is fast-paced and filled with plenty of action between the Pyr and Slayers. There's never a dull moment. I will say that this book was much better than the second. I look forward to the next book in the series. So if you're looking for something to read other than vampires and werewolves, give the dragons a chance.

    Erick Sorensson knows that his firestorm is close, because he can feeling the burning need to find her. Erick once had a firestorm, and at first it had been going well, he had a son. But then his son turned slayer on him, and he thought he had lost his mate. Erick knows that feeling the firestorm after all of these years, means his mate has been reincarnated. At first he doesn't want to give into this whirlwind of sensations again. Especially after losing so much before, but Eileen is so different. She is passionate, full of life and courage, and fights for those she cares about. Eileen, lately has been having some strange dreams, of a man who is a dragon but who is also her lover. Then the dream man becomes real, and her dreams change, as if she is seeing into the life of another person. Eileen gets thrust into a world of danger and intrigue, where dragons are real and very dangerous, and her life is constantly in danger. What shocks her is that the one dragon that has become her shadow, is her mate, and shows her passion and finding true love when you least expect it.Kiss of Fate is the third in the series. After reading the majority of the series so far, I was feeling antsy wanting to read Erick's story. Erick is just "Sigh"....so seductively sexy, and is one of my all time heroes. He is very protective, enough alpha in him to satisfy any woman, but not too much to drive a woman nuts. I found him to be 'delectable' at times. Eileen was such a fun character to read. Even though a bit predictable, I enjoyed the little surprises here and there, and I just truly enjoyed seeing what inner strength and character she had. Even though there were times that their story was a bit on the predictable side, but I loved the flair and the suspense that kept the story rolling and keeps the reader engaged. There was also a few side stories that I found just thrilling to read. I really liked the chemistry between Erick and Eileen, but I also enjoyed the love story that is so enthralling...it did bring a few tears to my eyes. But at other times I was just laughing with the witty rapatoire that this author displays throughout the story. I found Kiss of Fate to be a lovely addition to the story, and top of the list of favorites for me. A truly compelling read that will capture the heart of every reader who enjoys a captivating romance, thrilling plot, and sexy characters.My Favorite Quote It made Eileen feel powerful that she could incite desire in this man who such capabilities, who had lived so long and undoubtedly seen so many women. She was glad that he saw no need to change her, just accepted her as she was. Wanted her as she was. She liked that he was tough but vulnerable, and that he trusted her enough to let her glimpse his old wounds. She appreciated that he still gave her the choice, that he didn't just take what he wanted. It means that she would give him more.

    ‘Kiss of Fate‘ is the 3rd book in Deborah Cooke’s Dragonfire Series. It’s about the third firestorm, between Eric Sorensson and Eileen Grosvenor, before the final battle between Pyr and Slayer.It’s also a suitable book for the 2nd topic of the Reading Romances Challenge: Read a book with an older Hero or heroine (AT LEAST mid-to-late thirties): Eric has a few centuries in his backpack and Eileen’s thirty-seven.Eric is the leader of the Pyr, a group of dragons that are meant to protect the earth and all things that form it. In their quest to save earth and the human race against the Slayers (dragons that degenerated into foul creatures and are trying to wipe the humans and Pyr from the face of the earth), they have to fulfill some prophecies that include the consummating of three firestorms and the personal growth of each Pyr, beforethe final battle takes place.These stories are packed with action, fights, flights and persecutions; they also have a strong love theme and some Good vs. Evil lessons that captivate the reader’s attention. They also keep reminding us of humanity’s responsibility in saving ourselves and the earth we live in. It definitely is a fun read about dragon lore and human behavior. It really keeps us in a true roller-coaster of events.Even though we have a few surprises in this third volume, some of it became a little predictable. The new elements introduced in this book are interesting enough to keep us wondering what will be the next adventure and how the final battle will evolve. But (and on a more personal note) I think that the dragon fighting scenes needed a little more of the author’s attention. They are very passionate but kept focusing on details like claws and turns and forgetting the space confinements and some impossible maneuvers. The author also keeps adding characters in these scenes that confused the hell out of me. There’s no way a normal reader is able to keep track of all the characters colors…But I do maintain that this is a fun read and a good paranormal romance as it puts us through passion, reincarnation, sacrifice and redemption.Read the Portuguese review here: http://sarinhafarinha.wordpress.com/2...

    I absolutely love, love, love this series. Ms. Cooke always delivers a spellbinding ride with each of the Dragonfire novels and KISS OF FATE is no exception. Here we finally get the Pyr leader’s Erik’s story and its one wild roller coaster of a ride. This is an author who knows her series and her characters intimately. The characters alone are delightful, multi-dimensional and had me sighing over in delight. Ms. Cooke delivers a strong story in this series and KISS OF FATE keeps the series alive and well. The story flows smoothly with a few twists I didn’t see coming, a main set of characters you can root for and an enduring love worth fighting for. Eileen is having disturbing dreams and waking up with wet hair among other items caught in it. Dreams…that is all they were until dreams turn to reality when sexy, mysterious Erik walks into her life. From then on these two connect soul deep and the reader finds out Erik’ s past as he helps Eileen remember her identity. The question that is center throughout the story is can a dragon believes he gets a second chance at love? The author does a great job of incorporating that into the storyline and the characters Erik and Eileen are perfect together. Their love for one another once they got past their fears was beautiful and you got a sense they were in it for the long haul. The secondary characters were also excellent and kept the story moving nicely.KISS OF FATE is a fast paced, roller coaster of a story that leaves you breathless in the end. It’s a perfect series to enjoy on any given day and will leave you longing for more dragons to devour. With each book I read of this series, it just gets better and better. Lots of character development and fast paced storylines with each book have me hooked. I am just eager to see who will be next in the pyr to find their mate and firestorm. Deborah Cooke is a talented author and one I enjoy immensely. Get ready for a dragon that will steal your heart and leave you longing to meet a pyr of your own.

    This is the 3rd book in Deborah Cooke's Dragonfire series. The 3rd fateful Dragonfire for the Pyr is revealed and it is for Erik Sorensson this time. This is his 2nd time around, which is a rarity. But it turns out his first love has been reincarnated into the American college professor Eileen Grosvenor, who is in England researching a story that she is almost obsessed to find the meaning behind. Not knowing the story is related to Erik and her past life. The Dragonfire is what brings a Pyr to his intended mate, which will guarantee a new Pyr child. Pyr are dragonshifters who protect the world's resources, including mankind. Their enemies are Slayers, former Pyr who have turned against the ways of the Pyr and look at humankind as a vermin that should be wiped out. Eileen is brought to an English museum late one night to meet with an former college friend, who has some items she wants Eileen to look at, and these items (which are dragons' teeth) are something the Pyr and Slayers are both very interested in. This is when Erik and Eileen meet for the 1st time and she is face to face with both good and nasty dragons! I really enjoyed this story! Love the how and why the 2nd dragonfire happens to Erik, and how Eileen has been affected not knowing she had lived a previous life. There's a lot of action and intrigue and the secondary stories that take place with some of the other characters are just as compelling! This is a great continuation of the series, and I know there's one more in my TBR pile (Winter Kiss), I still need to pick up a copy of Whisper Kiss, the 5th book in the series!

    **** "Kiss of Fate" is the third Deborah Cooke Dragonfire romance, heralded by a third eclipse and firestorm, for King and Consort, before a prophesied war. Much narrative is devoted to the past, while everyone in the present chase a valuable old collection of 99 dragon teeth. The story spans time without travelling there. The only individual dragon color I can remember is the angelic pure white of the dainty ethereal oracle. Even she falls in love (a possible meaning of the title), with an ancient (tooth) who repeatedly saves her life, unknowingly endangering her powers. The armies of good Pyr and bad Slayers are a rainbow of jewels and precious metals. Slim heroine Eileen has waist-length red curls, and is 37, barely child-bearing, to contrast the first, young tiny blonde, and second, big brunette. She heats and sparks with the mating firestorm because she is the reincarnation of wife Louisa for Pyr leader Eric. She is foolish, runs from help into danger. The couple proclaim honesty, yet hide core secrets. Children betray and murder parents. Some sacrifices are willing. Lives spanning centuries, resurrection, and reincarnation complicate conflicts between generations and families. Old friends and enemies from previous books, and an untutored teen Viking foundling for a future book are welcome in familiarity but unwelcome in quantity. Family secrets avalanche (or earthquake) to a fatal end when everyone, including the teeth [spoiler - now animated], races to the below ocean and ground evil zombie shadow laboratory prison.

    Kiss of Fate by Deborah CookeThird in the Dragonfire series, Erik gets his firestorm. His second in his lifetime because his mate has been reincarnated and they have unfinished business. Pretty cool twist on the basic romance story. And the Slayers just keep getting or displaying new powers and you never really know if they are dead. The dragon's teeth legend was cool and I would have liked to hear more of the background/story on this before it was over. It seemed to be resolved too quickly along with Nikolas. And out of 100 dragon's teeth warriors only less than a dozen are left? That was pretty convenient, 100 when you need them, kill them off so the Pyr and Slayers are more evenly matched for the future battles. That seemed like a waste of a great storyline. Overall, an entertaining book. And hurry up with Rafferty's firestorm! Poor guy's been waiting millennia.~*~*~*~*So I peeked ahead and Rafferty does finally get his firestorm in Book 6, then Cooke veers completely off the grid in the next 2 books with 2 dragons not part of the original group. We'll see how I like them when I get to those. Oh and (view spoiler)[Erik's daughter Zoe has her own spinoff series - The Dragon Diaries. Ripoff of 'Vampire Diaries'? Plus all of a sudden there are other types of shape shifters that have never been mentioned in any of the other books? I may not read that YA series. (hide spoiler)]

    KISS OF FATE is the 3rd book in the Dragonfire Series by Deborah Cooke!! This is a great continuation of the series. If you've been reading the series, you've already met Erik, the leader of the Pyr.*This is Erik's story. Even though Erik already had a firestorm, he's given the privilege of having a second firestorm. And it happens to be with the reincarnated soul of the first mate. Eileen is a collector of stories and she has come to England to find out about a story about a dragon. She must find the answers to the dreams that she is plagued with.*You see, Erik's first firestorm ended tragically. His son turned Slayer and his mate killed herself. There were many unanswered questions and many broken hearts that the Great Wyvern gave Erik another chance.*So the majority of the story is where Erik and Eileen figure out that she is Louisa but she's not. They also get to know each other. And it's through their new relationship that they are able to truly heal.*And there are a ton of other things that happen in this story! You have to read carefully as there are many details that play a factor in the plot line. It is not an easy read. But it is an enjoyable read. Definitely worth checking out!!

    These books are highly addictive. If real life hadn't gotten in the way, I would end up reading these books in one sitting. With how much I love these Pyr, I kinda wish I could read them in one sitting.I love that there's so much lore, both real and fictional, in these books. I love that there's enough nail biting action to hold your attention. I love that there's a sweet, albeit a bit predictable, love in these books. Most of all I love that the heroines in these books are kick-ass strong!I've never really been a fan of dragon shifter books, but I'm completely in love with these dragons. I love that even though they are huge, bad-ass dragons, they aren't invincible. They get hurt, injured, nearly killed at times - but they always fight their way back. How dull would it be that they'd be invincible just cause they're dragons? Right?I was a bit unsure of Erik in the first two books, but reading this one I'm now a fangirl of Erik's. :DWhat had me firmly on Eileen's side, is that she was sneaky enough to trick the scary Slayers. Girl had them running in circles!I know some readers ended up hating this book, calling it "too out there". And that's fine. That's their right. But I love these books. And I'm usually a hard customer to please.

    I just love a good reincarnation story!I am glad Erik Sorensson got a second chance at love, even if it is the same soul this time around. Eileen is his perfect match. I was sad to see that Erik tried to fight his firestorm even though he had very strong feelings regardless. The Dragon's Teeth are where they should be, Magnus & Boris got what they deserved. Boris eventually and finally met his demise.I was happy to see that Sigmund came to terms with the entire situation. Eileen helped him to turn against the darkness and he in turn helped Eileen to repair Erik's missing scale.It was nice to see that Sophie (The Wyvern) & Nikolas (Dragoon Teeth Warrior) had their chance at love, it was sweet, although it ended abruptly with their sacrifice to destroy the dark academy, and as many dark slayers as possible. In which the Dragon's Teeth Warriors were a huge assistance.I don't think the gender of Eileen & Erik's baby should have been revealed so soon, although they will be the perfect parents to raise the new Wyvern.Absolutely loved this story!

    This series keeps getting better and better, I'm so glad to know the story behind Erik and his first firestorm with his wife Louisa and their son Sigmund and to know why Sigmund turned Slayer. Though the whole time I'm yelling at Erik (in my head mind you) because he is doing the typical thing guys do in romance novels, the whole I'm going to sacrifice myself routine, driving me crazy. But I love this series and I can't wait to see how Delany (love that name for a guy) will fair with his firestorm and how exactly will he heal himself and get Magnus out of his head, should be really good.OK now I'm getting crypic again but can't be helped, I had a thought cross my mind about Erik and Eileen's baby and I was wright! I was soooo happy that I was wright about that, it just made it that much more awesome, loved it, that was very clever writing, very clever indeed. :)

    This is the third of the "trilogy" within the Dragonfire series. What was set up as three firestorms is now nearing the culmination. With Erik's firestorm starting up, no one is more surprised than he is.Erik had a firestorm. Since Pyr dragons have only one destined mate, he thought he was immune. But if he has a firestorm, there is only one explanation. His mate is reincarnated. How can he possibly try to woo her again when he still hasn't forgiven himself for the mistakes he made in the past? That is the challenge in Erik's firestorm. To forgive himself enough to open his heart to Eileen. Because he truly believes that the fate of the Pyr rests on his shoulders and on him succeeding - and then sacrificing himself.For the full review please go to http://www.thewindowseat13.com/2012/1...

    This series just gets better and better. Badass Magnus is back and so is Boris - both on the wrong team - the Slayers. Mythologist Eileen Grosvenor enters the story with a satchel of dragon's teeth and both Magnus and Boris on her tail. Pyr leader Erik Sorensson is in search of his firestorm (mate) when he stumbles upon Eileen and rescues her and sets in motion a prophesy of death and danger.I love all the supporting characters (the good guys of course) and can't wait to read their stories. So far, each book has been unique with characters with interesting backgrounds (all different) and each time the Slayers bring something new and different to the fight keeping the Pyr on their toes. It's an exciting good vs evil scenario with hawt vulnerable guys and complimentary kick-ass females.

    While I was initially disappointed that this one was going to be about Erik (who is not one of my favorite characters), I was really pleased with the result. I can really appreciate Erik's growth as well. Again, the author really crafts a couple who will reveal each others strengths and weaknesses. The firestorm is just as hot and hard to deny. As always, we have the Slayer menace which is growing and becoming more complex with the addition of the Dragon's Blood Elixir to the plot. This makes for two points of tension in the novel and kept me compulsively turning pages until the early morning hours.

    Have to love it when a series just gets better with each successive book. I picked up the first in the series last year, right after it was released on a whim. Needed something to read and had nothing with me at the time. I'd never read any dragonshifting books prior but figured what the hell? I've been highly pleased with that decision last year and the second book in the series didn't disappoint either - just as this one (the third) didn't either. The action was brisk but not at such a breakneck pace that you weren't able to keep up, the story good and the romance/sex storyline was hot. Can't wait for the next one!

    This book had more inconsistencies than usual. It seems to have been rushed to print. The finale was sketchy and incomplete. It was choppy and rushed and lacked cohesion. And amI the only one who wonders how full sized dragons can fly through a broken window? Also why did Erik after fighting 4 dragons fly all the way from London to Chicago carrying his mate? He was worn out and it took 35 hours. Why didn't he just take a plane? On the whole though I did like this book. I am enjoying this series even with all the errors.

    Eric is the leader of the Pyr, and he's a cranky and tortured dude who lost his mate, and was betrayed by his only son. He's not an easy guy to like for so many reasons, but his story is compelling, complex and tragic. Eileen is a smart, tough woman. She needs to be just to stand up to Eric who is an uber alpha male, and quite moody to top if off. I wasn't sure how much I would like Eric's story, but it ended up my favorite of the Pyr stories.

    This series simply gets better and better. I think this is the best of the 3 that I've read so far. (And dammit, I wish I could find the next book! I have it, but it's buried in one of my piles.) Erik's been one of the more intriguing Pyr that we've met to date. Though I think the romance between Erik and Eileen was great, the relationship I enjoyed reading about the most was the one between Erik and his son, who was a Slayer. Lots of action and plenty of romance, this one's a winner.

    Wow, another great story in this series. I like dragons and I like shape-shifters, the two together are awesome. This book is another fight between good and evil.but it brings also memories from the past, Erik ' s past.Not so nice memories, but turning into good ones thanks to Eileen.I liked their love story in this fight who hasn't a winner just yet.Looking forward to read more in the next book. Loved the discovery on the last pages

    Good read although I was unhappy at some of the characters that made the 'noble sacrifice'.

    Nothing new, nothing new.I really have no inspiration to write a review for this because I think that the first two books are pretty much the same regarding my opinions for them. The fourth one was a bit lousier than the others, so I didn't get far into it, and the beginning of the fifth one is very boring and the characters have a tendency to repeat their thoughts over and over again. Feels like one big deja vu.These books are not getting better, and I am giving up on them.

    The third and best book in the series. I laughed, I cried, I told my sister to stop making fun of me for crying because of a book. The first two are pretty good, as well. And I thought I was going to go nuts after I read the second one, and realized the third wasn't out yet. ::pace, pace, pace::

    Por fin explicaron bien el pasado y los motivos de por qué los Asesinos son como son y se comportan de esa forma con los humanos. Me gusta que haya empezado a intercalar diversas historias como la de el recluta nuevo o la pérdida de la Wyvern. La historia de Erik y Eileen no ha estado mal, su pasado un tanto trágico pero una historia bien contada siempre vale la pena.
