Successful landscape designer Tania Solares prides herself on living by her own terms, relying on no man to provide for her. But her carefully controlled life takes a turn for the extraordinary when her inquiry into the disappearance of her best friend thrusts her between two warring factions of dragon-shifters. Suddenly Tania’s survival depends on Mac, a newly initiated dragon-warrior who will break every rule to keep her safe.

Now that Tania knows the truth about Dragonkind, returning to her old life is too grave a risk. Ivar, leader of the Razorbacks, plots to decimate the human race, and Tania is just the tool he needs. Despite the danger, Mac cannot deny her a choice: Trade the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve for safety in a magical world, or turn her back on the man she’s grown to love in order to reclaim a freedom that might not last? It is an impossible choice. And yet a sacrifice must be made…

The Nightfuries and Razorbacks are back and neither side is any nicer than they were before. This time the Razorbacks want to capture a high energy female named Tania and use her for breeding and Ivan’s personal pleasure. However, there is one Nightfury who is determined to stop him from doing that and he has friends…

Ms. Callahan has a talent for writing stories with lots of action in them. The world she has created with dragon shapeshifters stays consistent and solid in the books of the series. All the dragons have different talents which makes the story even more interesting. Her romances keep your attention, too.

She makes her main character in this story, Tania, a strong young woman with an independent streak. She tends to stay away from men. That doesn’t work too well when she gets captured by dragons. There are a couple of women at their compound but the rest are all men…

The author weaves a tale of dark and light. The Razorbacks want to control the world. The Nightfuries protect women and fight the Razorbacks. Ms. Callahan makes the wars ugly and with painful cost, as I believe dragon battles would be. With how tough she makes all her characters, you can tell that she was a tomboy in her youth and played hockey with the boys. She doesn’t believe in wimps.

This is the third installment in this series and while each book can stand alone, I have enjoyed reading all the tales. Here’s your chance to see how Tania enters the dragonworld and how she adjusts. I have the feeling the next book will about her younger sister and which Nightfury chooses her, but I could be wrong. I will be watching for the next in the series to find out.
