The Boss (Fire’s Edge #1)
By Abigail Owen
Rated 5 stars!!

Wowzer! Wow! Wow! I LoVe this story and did you see that cover?!! This book is outstanding! It has it all! Dragons( of course I had to mention them first), danger, love, fear, hate and a strong sassy woman. These dragons (all 10 of them) who work as enforcers are all very different. I loved learning about each of them. The colors, the shift, the man and beast. How can they be scary when they are so darn adorable! They all have different personalities but they have one thing in common…..they view each other as family.

Did I love Finn? YES! His story drew me in. I couldn’t get enough of him and his commanding voice. (Well he is the “Boss”. ) He has had a rough past and that is leading him to be cautious of any future. Delaney…..Delaney….Delaney! You are a favorite! It’s not too often i have a favorite girl. But Dang you are so sassy and strong! I love your attitude! You blended in so nicely with the was kinda fun to watch (read). When you stood on that mountain and said—-those “words” to Finn I was so proud of you and all that you have overcome. Simply wonderful!

My only issue (and it’s pretty tiny) is the traitor and the Rogue. Both of these were briefly touched upon but then really nothing else was mentioned. I am going to assume it’s for setting up one of the next books. Don’t let this deter you from this book. The story is still amazing because of the connections all the characters have with each other. On a side note I enjoyed meeting Lindi (Drake’s Sister) and her “boys”.

This is my first book by this author and it will not be the last! I am looking forward to (and can hardly wait)reading about all these dragon shifters in the future (hint hint). The writing flows so nicely. I made connections to this crew without even trying. Even though it’s a large cast I didn’t feel overwhelmed by meeting “the guys” all at once. That tells me how engaging the writing is. The story was different but yet something I am familiar with and the character development was very good. The characters have a nice structure among them. The fun and bantering is what makes a great book to read.
When is the next one??
