[ARCHIVE] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Tempted by Fire

Erin Kellison stories have always been a central part of Erin's life. She attempted her first book in the 6th grade, a dark fantasy adventure, and still has those early hand-written chapters. She graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English Language and Literature, and went on for a masters in Cultural Anthropology, focusing on oral storytelling. When she had children, nothing scared her anymore, so her focus shifted to writing fiction. She lives in Arizona with her two beloved daughters and husband, and she will have a dog (breed undetermined) when her youngest turns five. 

You can keep up with Erin online at her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Tempted By Fire is the first in the enthralling new Dragons of Bloodfire series by New York Times bestselling author Erin Kellison.

Dragon shifter Thane Ealdian has waited six hundred years to avenge the loss of his family, and finally a clue has surfaced that implicates an old adversary. Thane will stop at nothing to seek his revenge, but to prevent violence between the clans, the Bloodkin Triad has forced a mediator on him. Some upstart named Emerson Clark…

Emerson is fed up with all Bloodkin and how they’ve managed to control every aspect of her life. While she doesn’t believe that Bloodkin can shift into dragons—because, really?—she has to admit, they are exceptionally nice to look at. But once the mediation is over, she wants nothing to do with them ever again.

When Thane discovers that the clever and beautiful Emerson is the key to uncovering the truth, he has no intention of letting her go. Although she wants to run, she can’t turn her back on Thane or her intense feelings for him. His quest pulls at her heart, just as his nearness sparks something dangerous inside her. With evil in hot pursuit, sooner or later everything will ignite—the mediation, the shifter within her… and their passions.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle

Erin Kellison busts into the hot and popular dragon shifter sub-genre with a unique take on the mythos and captivates readers with strong and witty characters, a millennia old mystery, blood feuds, slayers, and so much more.

The world building is well thought out and beautifully built, building on that age old adage" Here there be dragons" and bringing it into today's world.

Thane and Emerson are a super fun couple. I felt she was a little naive at first, but I absolutely loved her spunk. And Thane... Can I just say 'sigh.' Their chemistry was intense and sexy, and the way he went from wanting to be done with his long life to wanting to live... for her... was utterly enchanting. Beautifully written in a way that made the reader feel like they were falling in love.

Kellison sticks to her dark and dangerous roots and gives us plenty of danger, action, and twists and turns, and the supporting characters left me wanting (and hoping) that we'd find out more.

All in all it was utterly enthralling and I couldn't put it down. If you're a shifter fan, a dragon fan, or even just a paranormal romance and/or urban fantasy fan, I think you will utterly enjoy Tempted by Fire and I cannot wait for the next book in the Dragons of Bloodfire series!
