Welcome to my post for the Fire of Stars of Stars and Dragons book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a $10 gift card and a copy of Fire of Stars and Dragons. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book.

Fire of Stars and Dragons
Release date: April 29, 2014
Publisher: Swoon Romance
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Following the death of her vampire uncle, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN finds herself in the midst of a trio of quintessential alpha male suitors in 22nd century sovereign America where human females should be seen and not heard.

Theo Pendragon claims her as his ward, ordained to guard her through to a long-awaited destiny unbeknownst to Cait, but finds more than he expected when passion ignites within the dragon for the first time. Always drawn to the pursuit of knowledge rather than the heat of desire, powerful demigod Dante cannot deny everything his future holds in Caitriona. America’s monarch, ancient vampire Corrin, has no interest in the frivolity of love, yet marrying Cait could be the answer to his continued survival.

Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to choosing a husband in seven days, knowing the consequences are eternal, the love undying, and the bond timeless.



My Rating: 3.5 Roses

A kick-ass heroine, a mix of magic, and three swoon-worthy guys. We get all that and more in Fire of Stars and Dragons. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful book. It wasn't perfect, but it was a lovely read.

Cait was a wonderful heroine. She was very strong and, even while surrounding by several powerful men, she refused to let anyone walk all over her. She wasn't taking any of their crap. I thought she was a great character and I really liked her.

I liked that all 3 potential love interests were distinct personalities, so I got to know them as individuals.
Corrin was the king and he was interesting. He was a tyrannical, boorish playboy, but there was a small part of him that seemed redeemable.
Dante was delightfully charming and very sweet.
Theo was absolutely adorable and utterly devoted to keeping Cait safe, no matter who she chose.
I liked all three of them.

The romance was good. I was wary going into this because I worried that the 3 love-interests thing would turn out bad. There were some parts where it didn't quite work, but, for the most part, it was well done and managed to work out. Though there was some back and forth, it was clear from the beginning where Cait's heart truly lay.

The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. My big issue with this book was that I wished there was an explanation as to why the world changed to how it was, more about the background of all the creatures, and more explanation of what exactly Cait's destiny was. But, I still enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. It tied up the love-square and left me curious as to what was going to happen next. I'm looking forward to reading book 2!

Fire of Stars and Dragons was a lovely New Adult paranormal romance. I really liked this book and I enjoyed reading it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.
