I liked this better than the 1st one. There was more info about the Pyr & Slayer factions. Sophie the Wyervn also had a more prominent role in this book. Donovan & Alex try to fight the firestorm but in the end it wins out. They are 2 strong characters. My only complaint is that it started to drag a bit so I ended up skipping through some pages. But I do recommend this & I can't wait to see what happens next in the series.
It's Donovan Shea's turn at a life mate but he wants no part of it. He was burned in the past by a woman with no lover or loyalty to him or anyone else for that matter. Enter sexy scientist Alex Madison, the inventor of the green car. Donovan's job as a Pyr is to protect her long enough to get her car to production in an effort to save the world from itself. Of course, the Slayers are after her and her invention since their game plan is to destroy life not save it.
I love this series so much that I can't imagine why it's taken me two years to pick up book number two. I can promise you, it won't take me 2 years to get to number three. I will admit to reading this book slowly so I could savor every detail of the romance which was sweet and slow since they both were fighting it. I really enjoyed the details of the firestorm (mate bond) and the resulting passion between Donovan and Alex. They tried hard to fight it but destiny waits for no one.
These dragons are all drool-worthy hunks with loyalty and morals but those slayers really need their asses kicked! It's a great division of good versus evil and how evil will eventually rot your soul and destroy the world. Oh and I liked the "green" concept car and wonder when we'll actually have them on the street. It's not as far-fetched as it seems.
