Blaze: A Dragon Romance
Donna Grant’s Dark Kings novel Blaze is entertaining, and it’s too bad I started on number 11. Grant has written many novels and supplementary stories set in this universe, with brightly colored covers and exciting synopses.
Number 11 is called Blaze, and I really loved the concept: dragons who can change into humans in the modern world and who get into trouble and fall in love along the way.
Anton, a dragon king, wants to find out why Kyvor, a tech company, has information on all of the dragon kings, and he wants to destroy that information. Anton and some friends, Esther and Kinsey, hone in on Devon, a high-ranking executive within the company to infiltrate and provide them with information. But evildoers within the company are on to Devon, and it’s up to Anton to keep her safe.
The rhythm and pace of Blaze reminds me a lot of Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series involving vampires in the modern world. The stories are snappy, funny, and fast-paced, with a bit of steamy romance to spice things up.
On the downside, there wasn’t much to Grant’s characters, and it could have been because I was starting out with the books later in the series. It was a little tough to keep up with all of the mythical creatures that were introduced, including fae, druids, dragons, warriors, and more. The rules of Grant’s magical universe might be easier to understand if you start at the beginning of the series.
