Coming from a race of dragons able to assume human form, Rikar, the last of the frost dragons, never imagined he could be conquered—until a sizzling encounter with street-tough homicide detective Angela Keene. He’s consumed by his need for her, and willing to do anything to be with her again.
Then the unthinkable happens: Angela falls into the clutches of a clan of dragonkind who feed off the life energy of women. If Rikar can’t rescue Angela, the only person who has ever been strong enough to command his love will be destroyed. Refusing to accept this fate, he vows to track down Angela and make her abductors pay—even if it costs his life.
Fury of Ice is the second book in the dragonfury series by Coreeen Callahan. I was able to obtain this through Audible, and since I have a love for audiobooks, I knew I had to get this through an audiobook. I do love a steamy shifter romance, but when you put dragons in the mix, the heat level on rises…mmm deliciousness in one book, who can resist??? Fury of Ice is Rikar’s story, we continue on from the last book, where Angela ends up being kidnapped by dragons with a evil agenda. Angela is a police officer, and is tough as nails, but being forced to feed the Razorback, Lothaire.. Angela’s strength is almost depleted, when a chance to escape opens up and she barely escapes with the help of Rikar coming to her rescue. Rikar and Angela are mates, and Angela is suffered from a form of PTSD, and Rikar is her anchor. With danger surrounding them, will Angela and Rikar be able to form the mating bond without losing one another to the enemy?
Fury of Ice is a fantastic shifter romance, and I do love dragons. They are so passionate and fierce, and I totally take it in for all its worth. After reading the first one, I have been waiting to read Rikar and Angela’s story. Even though I am not huge on the battle ready heroines, I really admired Angela, she was a very endearing characters, that instantly pulled at my heartstrings. From the beginning of the story you see how much that she has suffered at the hands of Lothaire, and I admire her courage and stubbornness to survive, she never gives up. Rikar is not going to give up on Angela, no matter what. Rikar is quite a swoon worthy hero, I would trade places with Angela any time. Rikar is a warrior, second in command, and definitely has the Alpha Male routine going on, but there are times where you love the way he is with Angela. He gives her room to breathe and make decisions for herself and tries not to push her too hard. I enjoyed seeing these two together, and what chemistry!! I thought my room would turn into flames, with that these two characters were dishing out. We do see a sub plot, with Angela’s partner who ends up being a fledgling water dragon (way cool right?), and the circumstances of his future mate which was a good start for the next book which is their story.
A suspenseful plot, that is packed with action, sexy dragon shifters, tender romance and a story to bring a tear or two to your eyes, and barks of laughter at other times. A story full of everything that makes a paranormal romance, Brilliantly well done…worth every penny!! Fully recommended.
