ARC Review: Flame by Donna Grants

Flame 

Donna Grant 

Dark KIngs Series, Book 17

Kindle Edition

Expected publication: June 30th 2020 by St. Martin’s Paperbacks

 

 

 

Flame is the next Dark Kings book in New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant’s series.

If she believed in destiny, she would believe they were meant for each other.
But that fire was put out long ago. . .

Living among the Dragon Kings, Cain has spent lifetimes learning to distrust both mortals and Fae. He is a warrior born—and every instinct demands that he fight to keep his own kind safe. But when a fringe member of the Dark Fae contacts the Kings with an urgent warning, Cain is torn for the first time. How can he trust this beautiful creature when resisting his primal attraction to her is battle enough?

Noreen is horrified by what her kind and the malevolent Others are planning for the Dragon Kings. Dark Fae or not, there are lines she will not cross—even if it means risking her life. But she never imagined that she would risk her heart until she meets Cain. She wants him with a soul-deep desire that frightens her…and endangers them both. Is saying goodbye to everything Noreen has ever known worth a love that will span time and realms?

 

 

 

4 Stars

 It’s not everyday that the enemy reaches out, willing to give up vital information. Is it legit or is it set up? Is the truth a lie or is the lie the truth. The deception is layered thick and something epic is on the rise. Donna Grant builds the anticipation for the ending of the series while giving readers a jaw-dropping story with Flame.

Noreen is an other and a dark fae. Her story is twisted and plays a bigger part than she could have ever realized. She has been victimized just as badly as the Kong’s themselves have. Things with her are not as they seem. I liked how as Noreen learned her own personal truth she adapted quickly, using it as a strength to move forward, doing what is right. There were many times while reading Flame, I wanted to dislike her but in the end she was truly an extraordinary character.

Cain is the King of the Navy Blue Dragons and has been tasked with finding the enemy source who sent them information. At first sight of her Cain knows he is done. At the first touch of her, he knows she’s his mate. Trust comes hard for the kings, he found truth and trust within an other. He was gentle, genuine, kind and compassionate. Was he blindsided by love or are more layers of deception being uncovered. Cain goes wholeheartedly into something that broke his heart and then healed it too. He knew the dangers to himself and the kings and he dove in head first. I so loved that about Cain.

Wow! Donna Grant has taken readers on an epic journey over the years with her tales of the Dragon Kings. Flame is the latest chapter in the overall story bringing us closer to the end. Flame gives readers the story of Noreen and Cain. An unlikely pairing but one that seems to have proven enemies can make the best lovers. Noreen and Cain were smoldering together. Their passion was intimate and deep. Cain was a gentleman among dragons. Even when he was feeling betrayed and hurt he was never Malicious towards the source of the pain. Noreen cares deeply and no spell could change those feelings. The two seem to have been almost made for each other. Many questions that have been lingering have answers come to light within the pages of Flame. A few old friends make important and impactful visits and a missing one returns. We see the king of kings and away we’ve never seen him before and some of the sacrifices that have truly been made. Flame is a story that has a lot of revenge, lies and deceit. Within those pages we were also able to get a story of compassion and love. Being the next to the last book in a series so much information lies within these pages and I believe a few hints to finally give us an answer to the biggest question we’ve all been asking.

Excerpt

Kyra knew the face of all seven Reapers, but it was the one she followed that stood out to her. It had nothing to do with his kissable lips, penetrating eyes, or his amazing body. That was a lie she couldn’t even tell herself. There had been something about the Reaper’s face that had pulled at Kyra instantly.

Perhaps she would’ve had better luck following the female Dark with her long braids and red nails.

Kyra shook her head. The moment her eyes had landed on her Reaper, she hadn’t been able to look away. He had fought like a wild man. He was savage and ferocious, and she hadn’t been able to look at anyone or anything else. He hadn’t given any quarter to the beasts. And Kyra had a feeling that her Reaper looked at the world just like that.

No quarter.

No forgiveness.

Her gaze ran over the face in the photo. Hollow cheeks, thin lips, regal nose, and a square jawline. It was a face she would never forget. It was also one she would never share with anyone else.

The Fae, in general, were terrified of the Reapers. Some didn’t believe the Reapers were real, while others were wholeheartedly convinced of them. Like all Fae children, Kyra had been told the stories as a kid. She’d feared the Reapers for much of her life, but after a while, when she’d found no proof of them, that terror began to ebb.

It wasn’t until the battle at the Light Castle that she realized the Reapers were real. Well, to be fair, she hadn’t known who the seven warriors were at first, but it didn’t take her long to piece it together.

The Dark female that battled with them? Well, that was another piece of the puzzle Kyra hadn’t figured out yet. She would eventually, but right now, her attention was on her Reaper and finding out everything she could about him.

It was dangerous. She knew that, but there wasn’t much about her life that wasn’t. She’d been living on the fringes of the Fae world for centuries now, interacting with both sides and gaining information she could pass on. Most times, she dealt more with the humans, but she still made sure to get to the Light Castle often to keep up with what was going on with the Fae.

The castle was a hub of information for the Light. All Kyra had to do was hang out there for a few hours, and she was able to learn all kinds of juicy gossip. Most of it was nonsense, but she always came away with a gem or two.

Dark Kings Series, Book 16

Releases October 29, 2019

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have lived among mortals, forsaking their true selves. But for Kelton, hiding in the realm of shadows—and existing only in the world of dreams—is no longer an option. A human woman claims to know that he, like other dark warriors of his kind, is real. That the legends about these powerful, seductive men with hearts ablaze are true. And that, with just one embrace, Kelton could destroy her…or love her until the end of time.

Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist who knows better than to fall into the arms of a Dragon King. But how can she resist Kelton when he’s so willing to share his secrets and bare his soul? He hasn’t met a beautiful, trustworthy woman like Bernadette in…forever. But once they give into their mutual desire, their worlds will never be the same. Soon Bernadette must face her dilemma: Should she expose the truth about Kelton in the name of science? Or join him in his battle with the dark forces—in the name of love?
