    Finally Ulrik's story!

    Torched by Donn Grant is the newest in the Dark Kings series. Torched centers on the Dragon King of the Silvers, Ulrik, who was stripped of his powers and banished from the rest of his Dragon King brethren long ago. Reading Torched as a stand-alone is possible, but with the background interactions involving Ulrik throughout the series, I would not recommend it. Ulrik has been evolving throughout the past several books, leading him to a place in Torched where he can take on his enemies, and possibly find a purpose beyond his need for vengeance. I have long awaited Ulrik's story. I enjoy a protagonist that struggles with their darkness within and needs a good redemption. Ulrik is one of these characters. Ulrik has been seeking revenge against the Dragon King of Kings Con, even though Con had his reasons for causing Ulrik's centuries of solitude without his magical essence. In Torched Ulrik allows himself to act on his feelings for the Druid Eilish who is responsible for unlocking his magic. In allowing himself to feel something other than hatred Ulrik finds some peace and reassesses what he wants from his future. The series has shown the bond between Con and Ulrik remained and Ulrik finally admits to himself that it sucks to stay murderously angry with your best friend. My final assessment is this installment of the Dark Kings series is well worth reading. I read about the Dragon Kings for its urban fantasy elements and the massive subplots that have been developing as far back as the Dark Sword series with the Dangerous Highlander. I love interconnecting plot lines, and the overall narrative is continuing to advance toward its apex. I am eager for its conclusion. The characters in the Dark World are a family with deep emotional ties. They care for and keep each other safe. It is satisfying to see one of their central exiled characters has found a way to become part of that family again. The paranormal romance aspect is just as good as it always is. Admittedly Ulrik is my type of alpha male, so I had no problems engaging in the passion between Ulrik and Eilish. There were a few moments I felt the lack of an emotional bond between them but came to the decision that could have to do with Ulrik's state of mind. All opinions are mine and may not be identical to others. I urge all readers to come to their own conclusions.

    TORCHED

    I enjoyed this book immensely. I couldn't put it down. The Dragon Kings series will be one I will enjoyed rereading for years to come. I like the fact that not all mysteries were revealed at the conclusion of Ulrick's revenge. I have been looking forward to Ulrick's book thru all the other Kings stories and I was not disappointed. It is a must read!! Now just need a book or two to know all the answers to Rhi's story. Hoping for a happy ending for Rhi.

    Torched is On Fire!

    Holy moly! Ulrik's story is amazing! It has something for every emotion - nervousness, fear, excitement, humour, frustration, a few tears and of course a little bit of love. Not to mention the hot Dragon Kings 😊 You seriously need to read this!!

    Powerful and moving!

    The 13th book of the series... It is the most powerful redemption book that I have ever read that Ms. Grant have written. After Phelan and Aisley's story, I thought that was the best redemption..since Aisley was a focal point, then it was Dale. But I was wrong. The King of Silvers, Ulrik, topped all of them. It was a heartbreaking journey. From book one, up to this book. The tears I have shed, each time his past was shown with the previous books, I wanted to get the the whole story...however, reading parts of it, and reading the whole thing from his POV hurts more. The emotions, both past, present, and the future are combined to in this book. It is hard to form words when you can feel the tears falling down on your cheeks. There is too much emotions in the book that you would like to be in it, just to ease the pain of the people I am reading. A book like no other, Ulrik's story takes us in a whirlwind of emotions. Each page is full of doubt, betrayal, revenge, a thirst of power...but most importantly, it teaches us that love does heal. All you have to do is accept, to forgive, and to realize that each person has a different way to protect the people around them. Brava, Ms. Grant! This is one amazing book, and I cannot wait to read the others.
