REVIEW: Passion Ignites is the second book I read by Donna Grant and it certainly isn’t going to be the last. In Passion Ignites we witness once again the fight between the Dark Fey and the Dragon Kings that seem to be getting even more dangerous.
For Thorn, finding his mate was not in his plans. He wasn’t even thinking about the possibility when it just happened. While in the streets fighting the Dark, Thorn meets Lexi, a woman who doesn’t understand the danger she is putting herself against by following a group of Dark.
Lexi has witness first hard what evil can do, when her friend Christina was murdered she set up herself to find the man or men responsible for her death. She didn’t see who killed her friend but she saw who she left the bar with the night she was murdered, she knows that man is behind her friend’s death. The red eyes are out to kill everyone and Lexi is convinced she must avenge the death of her friend at all cost, and she will do so by killing the man responsible.
I really enjoyed this installment, the author did a fantastic job pairing these two characters. Each one has things that the other needs, however their differences threaten to separate what destiny might’ve tried to unite. Thorn is one of those characters one can’t stop thinking even after finishing the book. He is understanding, brave, sensitive, and adoringly sexy. Lexi is smart, sensitive, loyal and brave. These two people meet during stressful circumstances for both yet make these circumstances work in ways that brings them together and make each of them stronger.
I really like how the author manages to put together a love story that survives the evil that seems to lurk around the Kings, even when the Dark attacks get stronger and bolder the attraction between these two characters get stronger. I enjoy the twists and turns the story seems to take. From the way in which other characters come to be part of every story to the finality their actions take when one of their own is in danger. Their unity, their loyalty and love for one another is threaten and put to the test over and over yet, they all manage to surpass whatever evil threatens to make them weaker or try to force them to lose their path.
I can’t wait see what happens with Darius & Sophia. I already like the nonsense kind of attitude these two characters seem to share, both seem to be at the ready when they are needed and both seem to have a tremendous will and strong personality. I can’t seriously wait to read it.
If you are looking for a great paranormal/urban fantasy then look no further.
