I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.
Dragon Fire is the first book I read in the Vale of the Stars series and I was blown away! I mean, WOW! What an awesome introduction to this series by Juliette Cross!
I really didn’t know what to expect when I started reading Dragon Fire only because I am not a fan of nuns in books, but this one just breaks the mold! Juliette Cross does not disappoint! We are shown how the friendship between Liana and Kieren early on in the book and that really sold me on their relationship.
This is the first time I got immersed in this world – a world of Morgons – a human-dragon hybrid – and humans and I can’t leave this world! I am now reading Dragon Heartstring, and I am loving it!
Even though I haven’t read the first book in this series, I was NOT lost at all! I love that the other characters from previous books had cameos, but they did not overpower the main couple and the main storyline. Plus, as someone who has never read this series at all, it was very easy to catch-up because the world is still subtlety explained!
My favorite part of Dragon Fire is definitely the relationship development between Liana and Keiren. Their relationship has a slow build-up and when it finally hits, WOW! I love the steaminess of their romance and their sexytimes – I actually wish there was more!
I highly recommend this book even if you haven’t read this series at all!

Do you have to read a series in order?
Can you read books that are not in order of release?

I’ve only read Waking the Dragon in this series but I loved it. And I’ve read other books from JCross. She’s very talented so I’m happy to see you enjoyed your introduction to her. 🙂

I’m so glad you enjoyed this book! Normally I like reading books in order, but for romance series that are typically spin-offs, I make exceptions!
