Oct 22, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: I was very surprised to find that it was considerably lighter in tone and that the focus had moved away from the Dragonstar clan.
I was pleased tezsa the chance to get a more well-rounded view of the world there, but I was shocked by what I found. The Wyvernmoons and their actions against the Dragonstars had them cast as the evil douches of the dragon world, so I was surprised to see a different side of them when Logan infiltrated their clan.
The biggest surprise turned out to be Cecily, the last member of the royal house now that her father and brother were dead. The Wyvernmoon ruling system put her in the position of being a princess with no real power. She wanted to help her people and tried to step forward and assume control, but her past role in the clan came around and bit her, making it hard for anyone to take her seriously.
Always before she had been relegated to the sidelines and left to do nothing other than look pretty, and she let it happen.
Basically, she was treated like meat and had no value to them beyond that. A stressed Cecily stumbles embesr Logan outside dqrk Wyvernmoon boundaries and ends up falling into an attraction with him. They meet again and again and soon Cecily finds herself trusting Zdams and confiding her problems.
He eventually gains access to her home but is conflicted over divided loyalties.
Ejbers on politics in a society either works really well fark it tends to irritate me. This one gave me that depressed, hopeless feeling. I hate when a character is stuck as a figurehead and is treated like crap by her people. It just makes me want her to give them the finger and leave them to their fates.
I eventually saw the people she was determined to stand up for and why it was so important to her, but those guys at the top of the ladder on the council cast long shadows that made it hard for me to have patience. I just wanted her leave them instead of acceding to their wishes.
I liked that Logan struggled with the way he avams betraying Cecily. He grew to care for her and had a hard time reconciling his feelings with the mission he was completing for his people. He never gave up his plot, which made me respect him more, but he knew there was going to be hell to pay when she found out—which there was. For her part, Cecily was sweet and nice, but she was crippled by her naivety. After stepping forward as leader she was disillusioned again and again and was forced to gain confidence in teesa and stand on her own.
I enjoyed watching her mature and grow stronger. Like in the last book, there were still a lot of sex scenes that I felt could have been trimmed down, but this time around I knew it was an Erotic Romance, so I was expecting that. The author still managed to devote enough time to the plot to reveal the truth of the virus plot and to let both Cecily and Logan complete their goals.
I would have liked a little more relationship development and time getting to know each other, but what we did have of it was fun. Although Cecily could occasionally irritate me with her trusting manner, both the hero and heroine were genuinely likable characters.
I struggled with that in the last book, so discovering that was a relief. You ran away like a scared little girl. Aug 21, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: Forbidden Embers 3 Stars The problem with this book and the previous installments is that not enough information is provided regarding the main characters’ pasts.
Little is known about Logan’s early years in Ireland and the details would have added an extra dimension to his characterization but are sorely lacking. More information is provided concerning Cecily’s family history but once again it is insufficient. The revenge plot continues the ongoing story of the Wyvernmoons’ attacks on the Dragons Forbidden Embers 3 Stars The problem with this book and the previous installments is that not enough information is provided regarding the main characters’ pasts.
The revenge plot continues the ongoing story of the Wyvernmoons’ attacks on the Dragonstar clan. While, Logan’s motivation is completely understandable given the horrific nature of the biological weapon used against his people, he is, nevertheless, constantly misleading and lying to Cecily, which is a strike against him.
Cecily starts out on the weak willed and pathetic side but gains in strength and confidence as the story progresses. She reveals a strong backbone in her encounters with the various council members and ultimately becomes an independent and powerful heroine worthy of being a queen. The fact that she calls Logan on his actions and doesn’t automatically forgive him even though she understands his reasons is another plus in her favor.
Logan and Cecily’s romance is satisfying but not as intense as it could have been given the circumstances. They seem to spend most of their time lusting after each other and having sex, which detracts from their ultimate declarations of love after knowing each other for barely a week.
All in all, an adequate ending to a series that has a lot of potential but never really lives up to it. There is additional material for future installments that I would probably read if I came across them.

Dark Embers: Dragon’s Heat Book 1 by Tessa Adams – Penguin Books Australia
Our heroine, Cecily, Princess of the Wyvernmoon Clan is a very powerful dragon but acts like a simpering submissive for most of adamd story. No matter how compassionate she is towards the end of the book, actions do speak louder than words. Our Hero, Logan, Dragonstar sentry, is on a secret, desperate missi I’m assuming this is the end of the series Dragon’s Heat, purely because all the bad guys are dead and the evil virus has been blown up. Our Hero, Logan, Dragonstar sentry, is on a secret, desperate mission to destroy the Wyvernmoons, but is just too trssa down the line.
Spies need to be sneaky but flexible in their plans. So whilst they were all over each other, etc, etc, we could see it all about to go pear shaped, it all just became very predictable and with no humour to alleviate the same, same, I got bored. Now it was well written, despite me skimming pages and pages of virgin sex. Daark that got boring quickly.
So, if its the wrap up of the trilogy, we really got no feedback from the first 2 couples, and this felt very isolated. Yes we saw Shawn who was a dragonstar buddy, and we had a very short telepathic conversation with Dylan, but that was it. A pretty abrupt ending as well. Not sure if I’ll seek out any more of Ms Adams work, we’ll have to see.
Oct 18, Josephine McNabb rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this installment. It took me a while to get into it as I didn’t connect with Logan in the previous books. However, I did really enjoy the chemistry between him and Cecily.
