Dragon Fire (Vale of Stars #3) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Adult Content

I absolutely love Juliette Cross and it is always a great day when I get to read one of her books.

Dragon Fire is book 3 in the Vale of Star series and focuses on Kieran and Liana. Kieran is Kol's twin brother, the bookish love of my life (Book #1). So although I liked Kieran, you can all have his hot ass! In other words: "Kol still mine, back the f*** off!" 

I suppose now that the important warning is out of the way we can get on with the Blurb and Review :)

Blurb: 
A taste of heaven may drag him to hell...

Wounded, with a target still on his back, Kieren Moonring has been hiding in the last place his Morgon enemies might find him. In the human convent on the southern shores of Primus, his body heals quickly, but his soul is broken. 

While Sister Liana tends to the recovering Morgon man hiding in their convent, she can't stop or disguise her growing attraction. What disturbs her more is that he begins to uncover her past that is best kept buried. 
Kieren fears his old enemies will find him, and then Liana. When his greatest fear comes true and she becomes their next mark...bloody hell, if he won’t murder the whole world to keep her safe.


4 Stars 

Let's start with my favorite part about Dragon Fire: Kol was there! hehehe 
Sorry guys, just like I couldn't talk about Hardest Fall without talking about Dom from Darkest Heart (another series by the fab Juliette), I can't here talk about this book without mentioning Kol a million times. So.... read another review if that is gonna bother ya! Seriously.... 🙈
Where were we? Ah... my favorite part! 
I need to find it and copy it here.... hold that thought ('cause you all here reading as type of-course...)! 

Ah.. found it (in case you wondering took me almost 10 minutes).

This is Moira and Jessen talking about the love of my life:
"Is there ever a time he's not frowning?" asked Jessen 
obs- this was after a long paragraph where Moira explained the meaning of the many of Kol's frowny expressions. Hilarious!!
"Oh yes. When we're having sex." She paused thoughtfully. "Or when I give him a blow job." I gasped and Jessen laughed. "He smiles a lot when I give him a blow job." Moira winked.
I laughed with them....
Me too Liana, me too...

I absolutely adore all the other female characters and their banter with Liana was just great. They made her fell welcome. 

Now to Kieran...
What an amazing guy! Trustworthy, loyal, intelligent, hot... What is not to like right?
He was also adorable and stupid. Adorable by trying to make things right by Liana, stupid for not realizing how much she wanted him from the gecko.

Liana was nice. A Sister of Light not by choice but by need. I didn't dislike her, but she is my least favorite heroine in the series. I am sitting here trying to think of a strong word to describe her and can't come up with anything. I guess that is my issue with her, she was just nice.... 

The way their relationship progressed was done really well. They had an immense amount of chemistry but also had a nice friendship. I think they compliment each other rather nicely. Kieran is this nice, trustworthy, diplomatic and understanding guy that can be strong and protective when needed. And Liana needs someone to trust and cherish like that. Someone like Kol would just scare the crap out of her! 

The only negative is Liana's past. I selfishly couldn't care less about all the stories about her father. Yup, I wanted to know why she became a sister, so that was needed. And how she knew the guys that helped them escape... but that is it. All the other inner dialogue or even chats with Kieran about her dad bored me. I might even have skipped some.... 

Anyway... I would read Juliette's shopping list. So all in all it was FANTASTIC!!! Go Read!

Release Date: April 30th

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
