Her words came out in a whisper. “Thank you for everything. For coming to my rescue, for…” She was saying goodbye, yet her chin tilted toward his and she took a step closer, her lips barely parted, inviting.

She peered up at him and met his gaze with a look that was surprisingly heated, decidedly predatory. There was no mistaking it. Melissa wanted him too. That was all the encouragement Stone needed to take her in his arms and bring his mouth down on hers with a hungry desire that surpassed all expectations.

Melissa gasped with delight and sighed into his kiss. Stone’s empty mug slid from her grasp and landed somewhere on the sofa. Stone pressed his eager body to hers and ran his hands up her back, threading his fingers through her hair. She was glorious, beautiful, her gaze sparking with reciprocal passion.

I ate in my room like a sulky teenage girl because I was too embarrassed to face Cooper. The smartass smile on his face when I told him I didn’t have a fiancée anymore told me he knew something went wrong. And that’s what he told me would happen if I moved off by myself.

And the number one assumption is cheating, and that was it. I was cheated on. I hoped Cooper was happy. Dumb bastard.

My fingertips wrapped tightly around my windowsill. Cooper went to check on Declan an hour before and was already snoring from our spare bedroom across the hallway.

I knew it wasn’t a good idea to go look but some invisible force pushed me forward. Groaning, I shoved my window up and the humid breeze nearly sucked the breath from me.

“I’ll give you a fourteenth of an ounce,” Monica was unusually generous and understanding. “For extremely difficult times. Stop by if you need more. But be careful not to get used to it too much. Heroin, for example, is only meant for critical moments, but can otherwise ruin a person.”

At the time she didn’t know the director was a drug trafficker. A true drug dealer. By selling drugs to models she lured their hard earned money into her own pocket. Business is business, of course.

Everything in the world is about business.

And exactly because of this Maja was now even more convinced that this was the first and the last time she would resort to the white powder. But destiny had other plans for her.

honor and love. Alliances are formed, promises are broken, and the fate of the world
hangs in the balance…

"The Phoenix Born" is the last of Kaitlyn Davis' "A Dance of Dragons" series. This is a series that I've been reading and reviewing from the beginning, so finishing this book was a bit of a bittersweet experience for me. It was interesting to see the direction the story was going, but I'm also sad to see it draw to a close.

This third and final installment in the series was one that really had me hooked. With the previous two books, we were led to believe certain things, and "The Phoenix Born" takes those thoughts and flips them around. Davis makes the reader question the things we thought we knew were "right", and showed how some times things aren't always as they seem.

Something else that I liked about this book was that we were introduced to more dragon riders. The coolness of dragons themselves aside (but seriously, dragons are awesome), I enjoyed the idea of the riders. They're connected in this special and unique way that gives them a purpose, a destiny. There were also some moments where they got to lighten the mood by playing around together with their elemental dragons.

I really did enjoy reading this book. While The first in the series too me a bit to get into, now the story is able to start right away and keep moving. However, these are not stand alone novels, so if you're interested in reading one (which I do recommend), start from the beginning.

If you're looking for a new fantasy series to read that's a way easier and faster read than the "Song of Ice and Fire" series, this might be the series for you. There's still magic, and dragons, and battles, but the story isn't weighed down like Martin's is. Davis' "A Dance of Dragons" is definitely a series that I would recommend.

Book Description:

As soon as I stepped onto the grounds of Amaris High, I knew I'd made a big mistake. I could never fit in at such a snobbish school – I was more IT girl than "it girl". But then I saw him.

Sam Spencer. My childhood best friend. But it couldn't be. Sam Spencer had died three years ago, on the night that changed everything. I need to know what happened, why he's suddenly not dead and is hanging out with a bunch of rich kids.

When the school is hit by a truth spell, it seems like the perfect chance to find out what Sam and his creepy new friends are hiding, but the weirder things get, the less I'm sure I want to know. Even for Sam, even for the free food, Amaris High might be more trouble than it's worth.

The water danced in the fountain, and between beams of refracted light, they appeared.

There were four of them. Even in silhouette they were impressive – the girl with long, straight hair and just the right amount of curves; the boys tall and broad-shouldered. They emitted charisma like a beacon, confident and untouchable. One of the boys turned to another and his eyes flashed in the sunlight.

He had an ethereal type of beauty, but there was an edge to it, a wildness. Rather than moonlight, he seemed formed from a supernova, from the chaos of total destruction, and I could well believe that if you got too close to him, you’d be pulled in, you’d collapse on yourself.
