Her presence touches him in unexpected ways, reminding him of mistakes he's determined not to make again, and Erik is forced to make a choice -- duty or love.« less
Good read although I was unhappy at some of the characters that made the 'noble sacrifice'. [That's my personal hangup - I want all the ones I like to survive!:] Erik and Eileen's firestorm [and tragic history:] are happily resolved and there is hope [and change:] on the horizon.
Dragonfire Series to date [more are coming:]:

This series just gets better and better. Bad guy Magnus is back and so is Boris - both on the wrong team - the Slayers. Mythologist Eileen Grosvenor enters the story with a satchel of dragon's teeth and both Magnus and Boris on her tail. Pyr leader Erik Sorensson is in search of his firestorm (mate) when he stumbles upon Eileen and rescues her and sets in motion a prophesy of death and danger.
I love all the supporting characters (the good guys of course) and can't wait to read their stories. So far, each book has been unique with characters with interesting backgrounds (all different) and each time the Slayers bring something new and different to the fight keeping the Pyr on their toes. It's an exciting good vs evil scenario with hawt vulnerable guys and complimentary kick-ass females.
