Description

Tempted By Fire is the first in the enthralling new Dragons of Bloodfire series by New York Times bestselling author Erin Kellison.
 
Dragon shifter Thane Ealdian has waited six hundred years to avenge the loss of his family, and finally a clue has surfaced that implicates an old adversary. Thane will stop at nothing to seek his revenge, but to prevent violence between the clans, the Bloodkin Triad has forced a mediator on him. Some upstart named Emerson Clark…
 
Emerson is fed up with all Bloodkin and how they’ve managed to control every aspect of her life. While she doesn’t believe that Bloodkin can shift into dragons—because, really?—she has to admit, they are exceptionally nice to look at. But once the mediation is over, she wants nothing to do with them ever again.
 
When Thane discovers that the clever and beautiful Emerson is the key to uncovering the truth, he has no intention of letting her go. Although she wants to run, she can’t turn her back on Thane or her intense feelings for him. His quest pulls at her heart, just as his nearness sparks something dangerous inside her. With evil in hot pursuit, sooner or later everything will ignite—the mediation, the shifter within her… and their passions.

    Great read, good pace, good story, creative believable world, interesting and well developed characters! And for once a clever author who lets you into her fictional world of her first book and actually finishes the initial story! Yes things will carry on in the following books and you do want to read on and delve more into this world of intrigue, but unlike countless other writers which write 1 story that should be in 1 book and instead eek it out over 3 or 4 books, literally stopping in the middle of the story to make you buy the next book Erin finishes her book properly and makes you want to read more and buy the next one! Other writers annoy me by not writing a complete book and therefore I refuse to buy any more. Erin writes a full story and still makes you want to read more of her work as a professional author should! Thanks Erin I thoroughly enjoyed your first book in this series and I will be buying more!
  • A great introduction to the bloodkin world

    Having read book 2 first I had an understanding of the bloodkin world Erin has created but having now read this I would recommend starting here. This book sets the scene of the human, bloodkin, wolfkin world and how they operate side by side. I love how Erin has merged them together in a different but completely believable way to other fantasy novels. Emerson is a great character to follow, she has gumption and strength but also a vulnerability hidden in disbelief about the bloodkin world. You find out more about her family towards the ends of the book but would have liked there to be more about her parents and her early life. I loved Thane and his relationship with Matthew, a true friendship that has stood the test of time. I smiled often at their dynamic, especially when Emerson was also involved. Thanes character was well built, you really understand and empathise with what he's been through and then his journey for resolution. All in all a really good read, a great filler for an afternoon/evening.
