Synopsis
The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of four sexy dragon shifters and the woman they’re sworn to serve…

It’s time for me to embrace my destiny as the next Black Dragon, the one who can control all five elements and bring balance to the realms.

I’ve bonded with two of my mates, Jasin and Auric, and now we continue our journey so I can become intimate with Slade and Reven. It’s a race against the Dragons we’re meant to overthrow, who will do anything to stop us from fulfilling our destiny.

We’re going to need allies if we want to defeat the Dragons, even if that means confronting the dark secrets of our pasts. But death and destruction follow us at every turn, and unlocking the hearts of my last two mates seems nearly impossible.

When all seems lost, will love be enough to save us?

What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I had a hard time writing this review.   This series up to this book had been fun, but I found myself not liking this book very much. If I am being completely honest if I did not have one more book provided by the author in this series I would not be continuing.

This book was supposed to be focused on Kira’s mate Slade, however, most of the book still seemed to focus on Jasin and Auric again.  I am really starting to not like the romance it seems very shallow.  There was one set of dialog that made me really dislike Jasin as a character so I am not looking forward to the next book since he seems to be the favorite and somehow he manages to be the focus of each book. 

I was really looking forward to a book about Slade and I feel like his character was slighted.  There does not seem to be much time spent on his character at all in this book.

Synopsis
The Fire God demands I become his Priestess…and take four mates.

I’ve secretly loved my four best friends ever since we were kids playing in the village together, but I can’t have them all—and there’s no way I can choose only one.

Blane, the town’s resident bad boy who I can’t seem to resist. Roth, the scarred hero who once broke my heart. Derel, the infuriatingly sexy man I’ve been betrothed to my entire life. And Falon, my best friend, who has never seen me as more…or has he?

When the Fire God chooses me to be his High Priestess, he demands I take four men to be my mates. Maybe I don’t have to choose after all…

But will the men agree to give up everything to join me at the Fire Temple? And if they do, what challenges will we face once we arrive there?

Light The Fire is a standalone prequel to the Her Elemental Dragons series.

What I thought

This is a prequel to the Elemental Dragons series and it can be read as a standalone. However, if you are going to read this as part of this series I suggest you wait to finish the second book first. This installment gives the backstory of the Fire High Priestess and takes place 20 years before the first book in this series. This story also adds a little more background to this world.

This is a super short and fast paced read. I can not make up my mind if it was just too short or if some of the information in it could have been added to the first two books.

Synopsis
To unlock her powers she must mate with four sexy dragon shifters. One down, three to go…

I’m done hiding. I’ve stopped running. And I’ve finally accepted my destiny—to take four dragon shifters as my mates so I can become the next Black Dragon, the wielder of all the elements.

I’ve already bonded with Jasin, my smoldering soldier, and soon I’ll be getting intimate with Auric, my lofty prince, Slade, my grounded blacksmith, and Reven, my frosty assassin. Only then can we become powerful enough to stop the current Dragons, the overlords of our world.

But as we continue our journey, secrets are uncovered about my mates that make me question everything, even as things heat up between us. Yet the greatest secret of all lies in my own past—and it might destroy us completely.

What I thought

This second book picks up right where we leave the characters in the first book. In this installment, we focus on Kira’s mate Auric. All of Auric’s secrets come to light in this one.

The first book only had one steamy scene, but this book is full of them. This book was just a fun and fast-paced read.

We learn more about Kira’s parentage and it explains some things. The world is making a little more sense. This was a fun continuation of this series.

Review: Stroke the Flame by Elizabeth Briggs

Stroke the Flame by Elizabeth Briggs
(Her Elemental Dragons #1)

Add to Goodreads

Synopsis
Four sexy dragon shifters. A huntress with a dark past. A bond that could save the world.

I’ve spent my entire life running from my past and staying out of trouble. That’s how I’ve kept alive ever since my parents were killed by the Black Dragon, who’s ruled the world under her oppressive talons for as long as anyone can remember.

But it’s hard to keep a low profile when four handsome strangers turn up in your village claiming you’re destined to save the world. According to them, they’ve been chosen by the gods to become elemental dragons—and I’m their mate.

Which means one day I’ll be the most powerful dragon of all, able to control all four elements. Assuming I can unlock my powers first…by getting intimate with each of my sexy mates.

Auric, the clever prince. Jasin, the cocky soldier. Slade, the protective blacksmith. Reven, the mysterious assassin. And me. We’re the only ones who can bring balance to the world and overthrow the Black Dragon—if she doesn’t tear us to shreds first….

What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is the first book in the Her Elemental Dragons Series. This is a multiple POV story you get to see things from all five points of view. Oh and this is a Reverse Harem story. I have never read anything quite like this before and I really enjoyed it.

Being the first book in a series this one sets up the basis for the world that we are in. I loved how this book was not info-dumpy. The Author cut out all the fluff and we get just the story. This made for a great straight forward read, especially with everything that is going on this is what I needed.

In this book, Kira is just trying to get to know her mates before she has to bond with them. I really enjoyed the fact that she wanted to get to know them and was not just along for the ride. It appears that each of these books will focus on a different mate. I can’t wait to watch this group come together and they learn to trust each other.

The audiobook has two narrators one for the male perspectives and one for the female perspective. The only issue that I had was when the male narrator tried to do a female voice…it just didn’t work for me.
