Review

"Modern day, fantasy and paranormal with hot romance, Coreene Callahan has created memorable characters and a seemingly impossible situation. That is storytelling at its best!" ~ Reader's Entertainment Book Reviews

About the Author

As the only girl on all-guys hockey teams from age six through her college years, Coreene Callahan knows a thing or two about tough guys and loves to write about them. Call it kismet. Call it payback after years of locker room talk and ice rink antics. But whatever you call it, the action better be heart stopping, the magic electric, and the story wicked good fun.

After graduating with honors in psychology and working as an interior designer, Callahan finally succumbed to her overactive imagination and returned to her first love: writing. And when she’s not writing, she is dreaming of magical worlds full of dragon-shifters, elite assassins, and romance that’s too hot to handle. Callahan currently lives in Canada with her family and her writing buddy, a fun-loving golden retriever.

Fury of Fire is a poor imitation of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but with dragon-men instead of vampires.

Here are just a few examples:

The line up of dragon brothers living in a luxury hidden lair is the Leader, the Best Friend, the Computer Geek ,the Troubled Dangerous Anti-Social One, and another one who didn't make any impression of distinct personality on me besides he's green in dragon form. They have a fussy butler/servant to cook them waffles and do their laundry. There is a homicide detective that can sense dragon "issues". The dragon-men wear "@!*#kickers", they call each other "warrior" and "brother", and they "feed" off "females". They go a dance club where bodies are "writhing", music is pumping, and people are having private time in the dark corners. The brothers sit in the VIP area, and drink brand-name alcohol while looking for their enemies or females to feed off of. The patrons "part like the red sea" when these over six-foot tall sex-gods wearing "leathers", and "rolling" with menace, cross the room. The males like to feed their females. They think of their females as "worthy" or "of worth". The dragon-boys have names along the same lines as the BDB boys. The dragon-boys have magic that makes them invisible to humans. The dragon-boys can't go outside during the day because of the sun light.

Those are just a tiny fraction of the similarities between this story and the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, but you get the idea.

A lot of other things bothered me about this book, but here are the highlights:

At one point, the heroine gets to ask the hero questions about dragon-kind, but the reader doesn't even get to hear it - she thinks about it later, and dribbles out some exposition about their origin story.

Welcome to Washington State.

This debut novel is the beginning to many additional installments.
Bastian is one of the oldest of his kind; an all male race born of human females - dragon-shifters. As leader of the Nightfury dragon clan it is his duty to protect humankind. With their numbers declining he needs to set an example. With only 5 days until the Meridian's axis realign, he has less than a week to find a mate.

"...Be the first to commit, to have a son, to lose his female in child birth."

Myst Munroe, a nurse practitioner, just wants to check on her pregnant patient - Caroline Van Owen. She is still recovering from her mother, Dana's, murder. When she arrives at Caroline's house and discovers her lying in a pool of blood - the flashbacks begin. Her training kicks in and she works to save both mother and her unborn child. Soon Bastian and his first in command, Rikar, arrive dressed as EMS workers - the battle begins.

Bastian feels an immediate attraction to Myst; her energy is unlike anything he has experienced before. Seeing her distress, he feels a compelling need to take care of her. For Bastian, that is something that has never happen before - but it is the one thing that he can't seem to control. When Myst starts to recover from the shock she become desperate, he knows that she will need his help - even if she is reluctant to accept it. Before long, Bastian finds himself unable to maintain his control - he wants to claim Myst for his own.

This is an emotion packed book that will make you laugh and make you cry. Myst's plight comes right off the pages. Her confusion over her feelings for Bastian tears her.
The secondary characters enrich the story.

J.R. Ward should be suing this author. Several reviews have already been written about the similarities so I won't repeat those. I'm just going to express my frustration that I paid money for a repeat of the Brotherhood books.

The "warring clans" aspect does give it a new spin, but it wasn't enough for me.

The obvious parallels seem to trail off towards the end of the book and I would start to hope the author's own style would shine through, only to be dashed again by some obvious rip off.

Even if you manage to wade through the non-existent dialogue, the never-ending, inner musings, the gratuitous profanity, the fact that EVERY. SINGLE. CHARACTER. SOUNDS. THE. SAME... How can you get past the fact that the 'hero' kidnaps, rapes and plans to murder the 'heroine'?

That's not romance.

Main character Myst's reaction to main character Bastion:
Six and a half feet of WOW. Dressed in leather. Oozing raw sex appeal. And the OMG factor didn't stop there, either. She swore she could smell him. The scent drifted, claiming her attention and, unable to help herself, she breathed deep. Yeah, that was definitely him. Yummy clean male with a hint of knee-weakening cologne.

This reads like a vampire novel where the vampires got changed to dragons in an emergency edit.
1. Dragons instantly turn to dust when their hearts stop.
2. Dragons are always male.
3. Dragons must consume "Meridian energy" from human females every 10 days or so.
4. Dragons can easily erase memories from humans.
5. Dragons must breed with human females to propagate.
6. Dragons can only breed biannually, at specific times.

The author relies heavily on MTM, SOS, APB, OMG, WTF, CPR, EMT, CSI, SOB, and BS. Lots of movies or companies like Harry Potter, Mission Impossible, Terminator, or MacDonalds are causually used to make analogies.

Another sample quote:
Normally, Sloan cranked up the volume, thumping out the tunes in the pre-dawn hours. A little Jay-Z or Tupac. Sometimes Nine Inch Nails or, if he felt like old school, Led Zepplin. Anything--even pansy-ass Neil Young--would have been better than the ball-busting silence.

Non-essential non-erotic profanity is used multiple times on almost every single page.

The exposition is non-stop. Weird rules line up on top of other weird rules for the sake of plot convenience. This would have been a better book if these were actually dragons instead of vampires with scales.
