Summary

The Dark Kings are sworn to defend an ancient legacy of dragon magic. But their fiercest challenge lies in the modern world, where a woman's love conquers all. These are their stories. Dark Heat gathers together these favorite stories of Donna Grant's Dark Kings.

Dark Craving: Fueled by ancient magic-and enflamed by human desire - the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love...with a mortal woman.

Night's Awakening: The dark immortal warriors were never meant to experience human desire. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shapeshifting warriors, meets Elena-a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core - all bets are off...

Dawn's Desire: For centuries, the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands to risk his life for the dragons within-and resist the temptations of human love.

Passion's Claim: Banan has been waiting for centuries for someone like Jane. Guy knew it was love at first sight with Elena. Can two Dragon Kings commit to two immortal women for eternity? Or does fate have something else in store?

A great set of prequel novels and bonus story

4 star prequel novella trilogy with bonus short story, which introduces the Dark Kings world and some of the key characters for the main Dark Kings Series by Donna Grant. The complication includes the prequel trilogy:

Dark Craving - 3 stars
Night's Awakening - 3 stars
Dawn's Desire - 4 stars
And the bonus story Passion’s Claim - 4 stars

I really enjoyed the prequel novellas and the bonus story was really sweet focusing on the next steps for the couples from the second two novella ‘Guy and Elena’ and ‘Banan and Jane’.

The narrator Antony Ferguson does a good Scottish accent for the Dark Kings, buy there wasn’t a great deal of versatility in his voice types between characters and his female voices were impossible to distinguish and his American accents a bit ropey. The narration at times also felt a little phoned in performance wise.

All in all a a great value read and a good introduction to what looks like it will be a great series, audio recording isn’t bad, but could be much better to do the stories justice.
