Publisher's Summary

No warrior of the Nightfury pack is more complicated or damaged than Wick. Scarred from a childhood of slavery and torture, Wick cannot bear the touch of another person. But all bets are off when he meets J. J. Solares. When she is unjustly imprisoned, Wick agrees to help rescue and keep her from harm. But Wick lives a life of self-imposed isolation, and venturing into the world to seek justice for J. J. may be more than he can take.

Brutalized by the harsh reality of prison, J. J. thinks she is hallucinating when a majestic dark-haired god sweeps in to save her - and Wick is shaken to his core by the attraction he feels for J. J. But neither is out of harm's way yet. When they find themselves at the center of a Dragonkind war, they are forced to make the ultimate choice - surrender to their fears or accept each other's love.

Fantastic Series

I knew coming into this book that Wick is darkened with a past that future relationship was just unimaginable. Frankly, I had no idea how his story will be playing out. He also had a certain bond with Venom, his best bud that I couldn't quite understand. Their relationship made me question their sexuality. I won't divulge that little information , but I can tell you that they are very close and Ven is the only one who truly knows him. I was curious on how this author was going to break this tough guy down to actually have him fall for any female.

I am happy to say that Wick's past was not as dark as I expected. I take that back, his past was dark, but Ms. Callahan didn't go into specific details , so readers didn't have to experience any of the sufferings. But she does let her readers know who Wick really is.

Wick is fierce, brave, feared , and he is respected among his comrades. What I didn't expect is that Wick, the scary dangerous grump that I know was nothing but a sweetheart. After meeting Jamison, he was nothing but mush. It was fascinating that this woman can have such power over Wick. The things Jamison did or say that made Wick smile just melted my heart.

Jamison on the other hand, was quite the opposite. She is this fragile woman who is trying her damnedest to be tough. Her decisions show's she is quite strong, but no, she is not a kick ass heroine. But that's okay because Wick is there to take care of her. I think that was the draw, Wick had that need to save her. I really enjoyed their love story.

Ms. Callahan of course didn't exclude the action and suspense that I have come to expect in this series. The warfare between the Razorbacks and Nightfury continues. Now the Razarbacks are attempting bigger and better ways to destroy humanity along with the Nightfury pack. With that said, you know that there are some battle scenes that are worth reading. There is a bit of build up for Forge which I'm hoping it's because his book is up next.

Benjamin L Darcie was outstanding with the delivery of the story

MAVERICK WICK IS QUICK TO CLICK & STICK TO 1 CHICK

This was my first taste into the Dragonfury series but it certainly won't be my last as I'm eagerly about to download all the previous books. Yes, it would have been an even better listen if I'd started at book 1 but hey I didn't and it was still a very enjoyable listen.

Who doesn't love drool-worthy Alpha Dragon shifter stories and this is so much more than just a romance as the talented author moves the good and evil Dragons around like a Chess game and you just don't know what her next move will be, but there's certainly a few surprises in store.

Wick is a complex character who's imprisoned by memories of a torturous past which outwardly makes him a fierce, feared but loyal member of the Nightfuries and he just hates to be touched. But that all changes while on his next mission - to rescue Jamison (J.J.), also a tortured, guilt ridden, vulnerable victim of circumstances, and he arrives just in time - however neither one was expecting fate to provide an 'Energy Fuse' bonding them together forever. Wick tries to fight the pull..... but we all know how that's going to end!

There's lots of action, a plot that's brimming with intrigue, snappy quick dialogue, plenty of interesting characters but I felt the sub plots took up a lot of the story rather than the romance. However, there were touching, intimate, tender scenes between the two fragile souls as they both learnt to trust, share secrets and open themselves up to the possibility of finally deserving love.

Worth a credit? Yes it would have been but it's a bargain at $7.34 for over 12 hours of listening pleasure so I saved my credit and bought it at an even better price when it was on sale - so I'm one happy purring pussycat.

Keep Them Coming!

Getting ready for the next book in the series to be released tomorrow, I went back and listen to this story again. It was just as good the second time around as the first. I really enjoy this series!

I read some of the other reviews and agree this series does remind me of JR Ward's BDB books; however, there are enough difference so you do not feel like it is a copycat. If you enjoy the BDB's books, you will like this series!

Four thumbs up!

Wick the Magic Dragon

I've been following the Dragonfury Series from the beginning, and I would suggest you do the same. Given I know the history, it's hard to judge if this book would stand alone or not, but I'm guessing not. The books in this series have a very heavy story line arc that continues from book to book.

Wick is a loose cannon, and I have a "thing" for the loose cannon heroes. Badder than bad boys, this type is truly on the edge. Think Zadist from JR Ward's Brotherhood series, Zarek from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. Every paranormal series seems to have a loose cannon in the mix, and they're always my favorite. Not sure what that says about me, but it gave me rather high expectations for this book, and Coreene almost delivered a home run. Almost, but not quite.

In the previous book, we learned of JJ's existence when her sister hooked up with Mac, another of the Nightfury dragon pack. In this book, we learn Wick's back story, his inability to stand another's touch and why he and Venom are so tight. The pairing of JJ and Wick brings two damaged souls together for a big old helping of loving and healing.

My only complaint is that I felt this book didn't dedicate as much time to Wick and JJ's relationship as the other books did to their main pairing. Or maybe I just wanted more. At any rate, that brought an otherwise 5 star read down to a 4 star one.

Mr Darcie is a very good narrator, but some of his male voices are a bit soft for me, including Wicks. Again, 4 rather than 5.

Those are only minor quibbles. These books are truly fantastic, and well worth your time if you are a paranormal/fantasy romance lover. It's a series I'd highly recommend to lovers of this genre.

Good, but I'm not reading anymore..

Any additional comments?

Over all, this was a good story but I have to admit that I skimmed a LOT of it, as I did with all of them.
I loved all the characters, Wick, J.J, Venom, Mac, Bastian, Rikar, Sloan, and all their women. But, there was soooo much filler.
From the very beginning of the book there was a plan to go get JJ from the hospital, that's how chapter 1 started and it took all the way to (about) page 120 before they ever got her. There was so much BS going on! Going to the club to find a woman for energy, 20 or 30 pages of that nonsense. Then Wick going outside all loopy, another 15 or so pages, then at the hospital it took another 30 or so pages before Wick ever touched her. I must have skimmed about 75 to 100 pages and that's really not good. I don't mind a little filler, that kind of goes with all books, but there was really no reason for this book to have over 400 pages and 12 and a half hours of (not so much) listening pleasure. I did like this group of dragon/men but I just can't see myself reading anymore from the author. And, if it's the publisher telling her they want 400 pages plus it's time to get a new publisher.

As to the narrator: Mr. Darcie did a fine job. He's still a little iffy when it comes to the women's voices but he does try his best and that's all I can ask.

Wicklicious

I love, love, love this series. Wick is one of my favorite Nightfury dragons, so I was excited to read his story. When his back story was finally revealed the relationship between Wick and Venom become so much clearer. With the explanation of his background, I understand Wick and love him that much more. I like JJ too. She offers the right amount of vulnerability and strength to be the female for Wick. This book offers a good blend of action, romance, and suspense. The book also answers a couple of questions that were presented in previous books and left some unopened questions, a good set up for the next book in the series. Be prepared for a WHAT!!, moment in this book.

If you haven’t read the previous three books in this series, please read them before you read this book. Although each book is on a different member of the Nightfury pack, reading them in order gives you a better understanding of the series, the characters and the world the author draws the reader into.

Worth a credit, umm YEAH!! But at the price, just buy it and save the credit for another day.

Love this series!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I hate these stupid questions. Wish I could just ignore and write a review! Oh wait...I can! I completely disagree with a lot of the readers who compared this series to JR Ward's BDB. I absolutely LOATHED BDB! Thought it was juvenile and HATED the very DATED "cool" vernacular. Just sounded rediculous, awkward & embarassing. Like when your parents try to act "cool". Anyway, THIS series ROCKS!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fury of Desire?

stupid question

What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?

LOVE his narration! Spot on! Perfect!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

stupid question

Any additional comments?

YES, PLEASE DO AWAY WITH THESE STUPID QUESTIONS!!!

Ugh. no.

I didn't make it past chapter 4 or so.

Maybe if you've been following this series, you'll like the book, but I have not, this was my first one, and I couldn't get around the writing despite the perfectly acceptable performance.

The reader wasn't bad, but the story itself, meh. Very tell, not show.

Loving them all since book one!

If you could sum up Fury of Desire in three words, what would they be?

So dang hot!

What does Benjamin L. Darcie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love that they kept the same voice actor.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When they reviled wicks past.

Any additional comments?

I am so in love with this series.

Another SEXY Dragon Tale

Another dragon finds his mate. This series is the dragon equivalent of Ward's BDB series. Just as solid, sexy and full of action. The alpha males -done so well by the narrator- made me swoon, and the women are strong heroines. The overall story arc will make you want to read each book in the series which I absolutely recommend.

Admirable effort spoiled by too much description

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was worth listening to (well ploughing through) only to get the onward going circumstances for the next book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No cliff hangers here. A bit *meh* looking forward to the next book though, as the story arc is interesting

What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?

Mr. Darcie's performance is good, with good character differentiation which is consistent across, not only the book, but across the series. Female characters are a little *meh* but not too bad or annoying

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Difficult one really. It's in the middle of an ongoing series, so in one part I'd say "yes" only because the background story arc is interesting, but as a stand alone it's really mediocre.

Any additional comments?

I got really frustrated with the flow (or lack of) in this book. Just as something interesting/important was about to happen there was suddenly 5 minutes of overly detailed description of feelings/emotions/sensations which really disrupted the moment, leaving the petit climax an anti climax after all.

So far I've been able to ignore (mainly) the similarities to JR Wards fantastic Black Dagger Brotherhood books, but Fury of Desire is practically identical to Zadists book, even the ebb and flow of the relationships :/

Another Fantastic Paranormal Erotic Romance!

This is the fourth book in The Dragonfury Series. I loved it!

Wick is a fantastic character! He is a quiet, deadly warrior who even intimidates his fellow brothers-in-arms. He is extremely intense and private, and has an aversion to being touched. However, his tough exterior hides a vulnerable and scarred young boy, who has faced untold terrors as a slave. I liked this intense man when I was first introduced to him in Fury of Fire, but I am glad he has had an opportunity to have his story told and for me to get to know him better.

Jamison Jordan Solares (J.J. for short) is the younger sister to Tania. She is a wonderful character, who has not had the most auspicious dealings with men; she is serving her sentence for killing her abusive ex after all. She too has trust issues, but when she meets Wick, she realises that the taciturn warrior is worth the risk. I liked meeting J.J., because she is the light to Wick's dark.

I have become totally addicted to this series! This is another book that I have purchased the audio copy of, so that I could listen to the story as I went about the household chores. I was completely hooked from the first sentence! The story is very similar to the other three previous books, but the Dragonfury pack is filled with interesting characters with complex individual issues and problems, so each story has something new for the reader to experience. The leader of the Razorback's, Ivar, is still experimenting, but now with the help of Hamersveld, a rogue water dragon, his experiment takes on an even more deadly twist. I am NOT looking forward to finding out the results! There are new characters to meet, and shocking twists and new developments for my beloved dragons to deal with. The introduction of Azrad into the mix has given this story a slight comic twist, even though the author didn't mean to. I liked the scene with Azrad and J.J. and the trip to the nurse's station. It tickled me! I was grinning, even though I know that it was rather serious, even potentially dangerous. However, I could imagine it quite clearly! The way the author described the scene made me wonder if she had had a similar experience at one time.
In fact, the whole book (and series) is highly detailed, and every fight and every intimate moment is described in such a way that it comes alive. Benjamin L. Darcie did another amazing job reading/narrating the story. His voice and reading pace was rather mesmerizing, which helped me "see" the scenes with ease! I may have to search for more of the books this man has narrated (if any)!
I am now looking forward to reading/listening to the next book in the series as soon as it is released!

Coreene Callahan has written another fantastic paranormal romance. She is fast becoming one of my favourite authors to read. Her books are fast paced, exciting and extremely addictive! I still have an issue with the f-bombs used, but I have come to realise that these characters are what they are, and I wouldn't change them at all.

Due to the use of bad language and the explicit sexual scenes, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances or books with sexy dragon shifters! - Lynn Worton
