Flying Through Fire by Nina Croft Review
Flying Through Fire
by Nina Croft
Winged monsters have been seen in the skies, and a pestilence follows in their wake, threatening the very survival of mankind. Only the crew of the Blood Hunter knows where they come from, and only one man has the power to send them back – Thorne, a human/dragon hybrid in possession of mental powers beyond comprehension.
Candance Decker doesn’t need anyone to look after her – she’s a badass werewolf more than capable of protecting herself and those she loves. All the same, she’s always been drawn to Thorne’s strength. In an uncertain world, he’s the one man who makes her feel safe. And what Candy wants, she usually gets.
But while Candy is tenacious, Thorne’s willpower has been honed over ten thousand years. He might want her, but the last thing he needs in an infatuation with a young, impetuous werewolf. Candy makes him lose control, and that could have disastrous consequences.
As the threat escalates and they become separated by time and space, Candy must find a way back to him, because while Thorne alone has the power to defeat the dragons, only together can they bring peace to the universe.
For anyone who would love to grow wings and fly….
How did I miss this entire series and only find it on book 6? After dogging kids so I could finish it as soon as possible. I wonder how quickly I can get my hands on the rest of the series to go back to reading about these wonderful characters. But I worry I might have shot myself in the foot since I have read this one (Book 6) before the others. Flying Through Fire is book 6 in the Dark Desires series. *note to self need to search for the other books soon.*
This book was a mix of adventure, fantasy, betrayal, action, time travel and science fiction romance enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. Which if anyone knows me knows that I love paranormal romance! By chapter 3 I was completely hooked. The crew of the spaceship Blood Hunter makes me want to sign up for a pilots position to look for trouble with the rest of them. *email me later if you know where I can sign up. Just saying* Once you got use to the multiple points of view that follow Candy as she searches for the man responsible for destroying her family. The sex scenes in this book were well written and intimate without the need for any over the top raunchy graphic descriptions. The characters are well developed and with full and flowing backgrounds which are woven through the entire book.
The heroine — Candace Decker who’s mother left her to take care of her twin brother, Angel at the age of twelve while she attempted to rescue their father from the clutches of the church. Candy then grew into the stubborn, fiery, take no lip werewolf who is solely focused with finding out who betrayed her parents which then leads to her being rather impulsive in some of her decisions. But we have all been there when we are with our family.
The hero — Thorne, a human-dragon hybrid — what can you say a ten thousand year old *talk about an age gap* who was changed by the dragons and now has his own wings, telepathic and gosh knows whatever else powers he has yet to discover. Thorne is very closed off and his age shows how he keeps people at a distance to survive the millennia. He has been duty-bound, uptight and keeping control of any situation. The complete opposite of Candy. *opposites attract*
Candy and Thorne’s relationship built from protector to a friendship to a loving relationship. As the tale of Thorne taking care of Candy after her parents were taken into custody and her mother was force back into the church. Goes into their friendship. Then their dealing with the the knowledge that the known universe was collapsing. This took me a little longer to grasp what was happening as it was the only book in the series I have read but I did so this can be read as a standalone the authors recap was just enough that you will want to stay in the story with the characters and read more. *sign me up*
I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers *but you will not be able to put this book down* so I will sign off for now and give Ms. Croft her well earned five hearts as the twists and turns in this book were like riding on the back of a dragon in a windstorm!
HANG ON TO YOUR DRAGON!
