About Tempted By Fire:
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.

My Thoughts:
Promising start to a new-to-me series.

The world building and the story telling quality were fantastic!! The plot though was a bit thin on the ground. And then I liked the way the narrator gave Thane a growley voice!

At barely five hours listening time, I wouldn't really call this a full novel. However it is a whole lot longer than a novella. Either way, its a quick nice read. Enjoyed the book and would give it a 4.5 out of 5.

Short and sweet.

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 5
Character development = 4.5
Story itself = 4.5
Writing Style = 4.5
Ending = 4.5
World building = 5
Cover art = 4.5
Pace = (4 hrs and 56 mins listening time)
Plot = 2.5
Narration = 4.5

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 cherries
