Review: Dragon Red: A Fire Unfed by Macy Babineaux!


Love is a fire that needs to be fed.
Kal Wildfire roams the Burning Sands with no memory of who he is or how he got there. A desert witch will set him on the path to regain his identity and to find what he truly needs.
Thalia Thistledown is a shy, beautiful young woman living in a warren of other rabbit shifters in the Hartglade Forest. But in the blink of an eye she will lose everything as a marauding army of snake soldiers mercilessly destroys everything she holds dear.
As their paths cross, Kal will need Thalia's help to complete his journey to recover his memory and powers. Thalia will need Kal's help to find new purpose in a world where she has lost everything. And they will need to work together to stop the plans of a demon and two dragon shifters determined to tear the world apart and remake it in their image.
Along the way, they will learn that sometimes a flower of hope grows from the ashes of tragedy, and sometimes you have to forget who you were to realize who you really want to be.
Dragon Red: A Fire Unfed is the second book in the Dragonlords of Xandakar series. It has a happy ending and a little bit of steam, and you won't be lost if you haven't read the first book.

I loved Dragon Red book even more than the first book! Which is saying something because I really enjoyed book 1. I love the multiple points of view and feel they really drive and enhance the story. I love getting into everyone's head to learn not only their thoughts, but their motives as well. This story (as well as book one) is a wonderful blend of paranormal romance, great writing and a fascinating world. The plot has all kinds of twists and turns and is wonderfully complex. Dragon Red was a quick read because I couldn't pull myself away from the story. 

While a lot of the world building is laid out in book one, I was still excited that we got to explore more of the world along with our main female character, Thalia. Seeing brief glimpses of past characters was an enjoyable addition to this story. I hope we are able to see more of them in future books and am excited to see how everything will fall into place. This book brings about new kinds of shifters and it was interesting to see how two creatures so vastly different fell in love. This story is more tame in the sensual department than the first book, but I liked that the two stories were so different. I loved the suspense of Kal journeying to discover himself and watching the romance bloom.

I cannot wait to read the next book in the series! I would highly recommend this series to any paranormal romance lover.

I voluntarily read and reviewed this ARC.
