BOOK REVIEW: Dark Fire (Fireblood Dragon) by Ruby Dixon #darkfantasy #PNR #bookreview

Azar has taken over Fort Dallas. He rules with complete authority, and everyone bows down to him.

Everyone except one woman. Melina, the fort’s medic. No matter what he offers, she refuses to give in. A good man would know to stop asking. Unfortunately for Melina, Azar is not a good man.


MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Looking for an anti-hero? Azar is certainly no one’s idea of Prince Charming. He’s been hated by the other characters in every book since we first met him.

I loved getting to see why he reacted to things the way he did. It was nice seeing Melina humanize him, make him want to be a better person.

Once I started reading this book, I didn’t want to put it down. It was simply amazing. Yes, it does touch on topics that might be difficult for some people to read, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a “dark romance”. So if you’re used to the super dark Mafia books and such, this one won’t come close to that level of darkness. For me, it was more gray than pitch black.

Melina is fierce, determined, and such a strong character. She also has the softest heart, only wanting what’s best for others. In that instance, I was happy she had Azar. He was set on her taking better care of herself, and Melina didn’t seem to have that ability. She’d give and give until she had nothing left, then try to give some more.

Loved seeing more of the babies and the other couples!

I won’t give anything away, but the ending is… wow! Such a major surprise. I don’t know if this will be the last book, but I hope not. I’d love to see what happens when the other single dragons find their mates, because this book was a major game changer.
