Bound in Fire Synopsis

War is coming.

One way or another, the outcome will forever change the Sixth Realm.

Egan once thought his life would be marked with loneliness and invisibility in order to protect the fact that he’s actually a dragon, until meeting Prince Raiden. Now, he’s thrust into a world he never imagined he would be a part of. He’s willing to find his place in Raiden’s world to be with the man he loves.

As prince, Raiden feels the weight of the impending battle and the lives of his people in peril. Everything hangs in the balance. He finds hope, strength, and refuge in the love he has in Egan and wants to cherish every moment while they can.

When the day arrives, Raiden and Egan march to war. Two soldiers bound together, bound both with duty and love.

Bound in Fire Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Another great read from Debbie McQueen in the Dragon King series. Bound in Fire picks up immediately where Of Heart and Wings leaves off, so please read the first book before picking up this novel.

Raidon and Egan, oh my sweet cinnamon roll boys. Their relationship continues to develop and deepen in this installment. They are still the sweet and awkward men from the first book, but both have grown and become more confident in themselves and in their relationship. These boys are so thoughtful and focused on their relationship and being the best partner they can be for each other. This is definitely a lovey-dovey, make-you-want-to-puke romance, but in a good way. Definitely a full out fairy tale for sure. One of my favourite scenes between these two is when Egan’s plan for the stone he was compelled to take from his step-father was revealed. It was not what I expected, but I don’t know why I was expecting what I thought it would be!

The pacing of the book was well done and the events of the novel were well spread out. Debbie still places acceptance and understanding at the forefront of Bound in Fire. In this novel, this acceptance and understanding extends more than just from Egan’s mother and Raidon’s father. More of their family and friends accept Raidon’s and Egan’s relationship. This is the kind of coming out that those in the LGBTQ+ community wish for. No one batting an eye as they appear together, no questions from family and friends, just total acceptance.

While I wish to say so much more, I can’t figure out a way to type it out that doesn’t spoil it. All I can say is that I love and hate Debbie for the cliffhanger ending and I can’t wait for the third book to be released (so I can get my hands on its ARC).

I would like to thank Debbie McQueen for sending me a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
