My Rating: Five Captivating Stars*****
Be still my heart! I loved, loved, loved this book! I adore paranormal romance and no one does it better than Zoe Chant! I've been a diehard fan for several years and I can truthfully say, I've never read a Zoe Chant book I didn't enjoy. Chant is an incredibly gifted storyteller, a talented wordsmith, and a true master of her trade. Chant excels at creating unique storylines with vividly depicted worlds and beautifully detailed descriptions, then populating her creations with intriguing, larger-than-life characters who will surely capture your imagination along with your heart. And Firefighter Sea Dragon was no exception! Once I started reading, I could not stop. I was riveted to my seat, white knuckling my ereader with my heart fluttering wildly in my chest as the hours flew as quickly as the pages... and it was FABULOUS! But let's talk details so you'll know why I love this story so much.
Firefighter Dragon is an imaginative, fast-paced, easy-to-follow, full-length, standalone paranormal romance liberally laced with elements of fantasy. Fortunately for the reader, this story is somewhat longer than the majority of Chant's books coming in at approximately 300 pages, none of which is fluff or empty filler. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with his and her perspectives. The dialogue is smart, well-executed, at times hilarious, and flows effortlessly. Firefighter Sea Dragon is exceptionally well-crafted, developed and edited as are all of Chant's books. I also feel compelled to mention, Chant's books have beautiful covers and artwork which always seem to capture the spirit of the story and its characters, and I truly love that about her work. But I think my favorite component of every Chant story is the characters she creates to populate her fascinating worlds. They are captivating, intriguing, engaging, and no matter how fantastical their alter form may be, whether it be shifter or creature of myth and legend, they are still relatable to the reader with the same challenges and heartaches we experience in our daily lives. I was immediately smitten with the two protagonists of this story, beautiful but lonely conservationist Neredia Small who was anything but small, and handsome sea dragon John Doe aka Walker-Above-Water, Emissary to the Land from the Pearl Throne, Knight-Poet of the First Water, Sworn Seeker of the Emperor-In-Absence, and firefighter for the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service. Wow, what a mouthful but sea dragons have two names, one for land in their human form and another for the sea in their dragon form which is proudly sung beneath the waves and is a compilation of their accomplishments and titles. And sea dragons don't have inner dragons, they have inner humans since their dragon is their true form. Sea dragons are not born as humans like most shifters, but are hatched from eggs as baby dragons! See, I told you this was unique and imaginative, and this is just a small sampling of what to expect in this story. I've read a lot of Zoe Chant books and loved all the characters but John and Neredia quickly became my favorites and truly captured my heart. Their story really played havoc with my emotions. John and Neredia's story just ripped my heart right out of my chest! My heart actually ached for these two characters. I sniffled, sobbed and outright ugly cried through the entire book but, as in true Chant form, I also snickered, snorted and giggled my way to the end. I ran the full gambit of emotions - sadness, heartbreak, anger, and joy. I laughed with these characters, empathized with them, cried for them, and shook my fists in anger at the injustice they suffered... and loved every single minute! Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! In fact, I loved it so much, I bought it. Please allow me to explain. I have Kindle Unlimited so I could have read this story for free but after reading the sample, I knew this was a book I wanted as part of my permanent library so I could read it again. Chant's books are all enrolled in the KU program but I still find myself buying them all. What can I say? Yes, they're that good and I always feel like I get my money's worth! Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does include some steamy, dreamy love scenes. If you love unique paranormal stories filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, adventure, lies, deceit, betrayal, angst, passion, romance and always a happy ending, then Firefighter Sea Dragon is calling your name! There have been three releases in this series prior to this one and several of the characters from the previous books do cross over and appear in all the books, but you can still read them in any order. Why am I telling you this? Because I highly recommend this entire series! They're all fabulous! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book! I can hardly wait for the fifth book of the series which will be Hugh's story. I'm dying to discover what kind of shifter he is! So bring it on Zoe Chant... inquiring minds want to know! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Sea dragon John Doe would never understand humans. No matter how much time he spends with his land walker friends and fellow firefighters from the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Atlantis, he longs to return to his underwater home in Atlantis. Two years is too long to be away from the life he so loves under the sea. He understands his mission is of utmost importance and has diligently searched the bays and harbors of England's coastlines as well as the nearby lakes and rivers to locate the missing sea dragon King of Atlantis, Pearl Emperor, Commander of the Waves, and ruler over all the shifters of the seas. Sadly, John has found nothing in those two years... just as he'd found nothing when years earlier he'd thrice circled the globe, scouring the oceans and seas singing for his mate, but his songs had been answered with nothing but silence. And sea dragons only mated with other sea dragons so finding a mate on land was not even possible because sea dragons did not generally mix with other shifters or humans, and only lived in the sea. He'd finally admitted defeat and only then was he allowed to pledge his fealty to the Pearl Throne by swearing vows of service and celibacy, guaranteeing his loyalties could never be divided between love and duty. He'd long ago accepted his fate and now lived only to serve the Pearl Throne. Having failed to find any trace of the missing Pearl Emperor, it was time to return home, just as soon as he fulfills his obligation to his oath-brother by standing with him at his upcoming wedding which was to be held at a resort located on the shores of Loch Ness, one of the few bodies of water John has not checked, at least not yet. So imagine his surprise when the waters of the Loch reply to his song, whispering secrets he could never have anticipated. Yes, there's something nearby... or rather someone... but it isn't the Pearl Emperor. Oh my! It's a beautiful woman and she's his mate. What? He'd searched and sang for her but she'd never answered... and she claims to be human... one who can't even swim! Not possible! So what does a loyal sea dragon Knight, one sworn to celibacy and forbidden to take a mate, do now?
Neredia Small desperately longs to find love and acceptance but her dream of finding happiness seems more and more impossible with every passing day. It's hard to fit in when you're six and a half feet tall with skins as dark as the night sky and literally tower above most men. She loves her job as a conservationist but she's so tired of her lonely existence, and even more so since the deaths of her mother and father, occurring only a few months apart. Neredia has no other family which is why she's tried finding companionship through online dating sites and, yet again, felt the heart-wrenching sting of rejection after another disastrous first date. Once the men see bountiful curves, and towering height, they run for the hills, never to be seen or heard from again. It's heartbreaking... and futile. As if this latest humiliation isn't enough, the universe seems to be conspiring against her, determined to bring her to her knees, literally, when she's mugged outside the tavern near Loch Ness. The thieves try to steal her pearl pendant, the only thing of value she owns, not because of its monetary value but rather its sentimental importance since it was given to her by her father just before he died. Thankfully, a dark and very large seven-foot-tall good Samaritan suddenly immerges from the waters of the Loch to rescue her. Oh my! This guy is not only insanely hot but he's also insane, like looney tunes crazy, because he declares he's a sea dragon Knight of Atlantis and she's not even human, but the daughter of the missing and now deceased Pearl Emperor which makes her the Empress-in-waiting. Huh? And if that's not enough, he also claims she's his mate but they can never be together because of his vows of fealty to the Pearl Throne. Utterly and totally ridiculous, right?!? But when old secrets come to light and an unknown enemy surfaces making deadly attempts on her life, Neredia realizes there may be more truth to this Knight's claims than she originally thought, and knows she needs answers to her questions about her parents... and herself. But can John Doe, her Knight in shining armor, protect her from those who wish her dead so she can finally discover the truth? We'll see!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, and no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I have bought this book because I loved it, and I own most of Zoe’s books!
This cover matches the series!
This is the fourth book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy scenes. I highly recommend reading the series in order to make it a much richer experience with the characters.
John is already a character I love because his lack of comprehension or misunderstandings are at times hilarious. Neridia is strong, but she has issues of feeling inadequate with the way people have treated her like she doesn’t belong.
As always with Zoe’s books, there is the perfect combination of action, drama, treachery, and romance. I love her style of HEAs. Her books are easy to love if shifters and HEAs are your thing.
I highly recommend this whole series to all shifter lovers especially if you love HEAs and Zoe already!
John Doe, a Sea Dragon shifter and a member of the East Sussex Fire & Rescue firefighter team. He never understood how the humans no matter how hard he tried. John was a Knight from the hidden underwater city of Atlantis. He was on a mission to find the ruler of all sea shifters, the Pearl Emperor.
He met some great friends while in his quest and even though his friends found mates. John knew he could never have one cause as a knight it was forbidden to him especially if she was human. Things changed for John when he saved Neridia from a mugging. He knew the instant he looked it her eyes that she was his.
There was a well kept secret surrounding Neridia's true identity. When John found out about it, his quest took on another yet life changing meaning. Danger was lurking around his mate and he would protect her, come what may.
Loved how closed all the guys were, it was like one big extended family. The way they all tried to make John change his mind about leaving was well done. Griff and Hayley (FIREFIGHTER GRIFFIN) finally tied the knot.
Neridia didn't want to claim her birth rights and that shocked John but they worked things out. Those they thought were their enemies turned out to be friends while friends turned out to be their greatest foes.
FIREFIGHTER SEA DRAGON is the fourth book in Zoe Chant's FIRE & RESCUE SHIFTERS series. It was heartwarming and intriguing. 5++++
****I received a free copy from the author, without any obligation to review.****
Poor John. He isn’t truly honor bond to be alone but he believes that is part of his fate. It’s a good thing he has friends that are willing to fight for him and Neridia. They know what it’s like to search and then find you mate and be whole. But then when she and John do become one, someone is trying to kill her. And I had a pretty good idea who wanted her dead. Power tends to corrupt and is what it did.
