About this ebook

Inferno is the explosive, most anticipated, final book in Donna Grant's Dark Kings series featuring Con, the King of the Dragon Kings!

I knew what I wanted. And nothing was going to stop me.

King of Dragon Kings. Driven, ruthless, shrewd. The weight of survival for Constantine and his brethren has pushed him to set aside his own yearnings—for now. He’s the most powerful of all Dragon Kings, and Con will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who dares to threaten his existence.

For years, Con has hidden his pain—his desperation—for there is one smoldering beauty that he craves above all else, even if he feels he doesn’t deserve her. However, his enemies are at every corner. There is no one left to trust. But none of that matters anymore: There is only one thing that Con wants. With this one woman by his side, he can fight for the freedom of his fellow men-in-arms. All Con has to do is get her to surrender her heart...and be his for all time.

4.5 stars--INFERNO is the final instalment in Donna Grant’s contemporary, adult DARK KINGS paranormal, romance series focusing on the Dragon Kings and the women they love. This is Gold Dragon King, King of Kings Constantine’ storyline. SOME BACKGROUND: The DARK KINGS is a spinoff from Donna Grant’s DARK WARRIOR series which in turn is a spin off from Donna’s DARK SWORD series- all set in the Highlands of Scotland, including the latest spin off about the Fae executioners known as the REAPERS. The Dragon Kings have a new enemy with the recent appearance of a group known as the Others, but their true identity and membership is currently unknown. As each Dragon King falls in love and finds his mate, King Constantine is pulled further away from the woman he loves, a woman he betrayed thousands of years earlier. NOTE: If you have not read the previous few instalments, there may be some spoilers in my review. I have purposely not revealed the identity of Con’s mate. Told from several third person perspectives INFERNO follows Dragon King Con, King of Kings as he prepares to reclaim the woman he loves. Thousands of years earlier, Constantine found his mate and fell in love but in the years that followed none of his fellow Dragon Kings had found their mate, so to focus on the Kings and the war with the Fae, Constantine walked away from the woman he loved, destroying both of their hearts in the process. Thousands of years would pass, and most of the Dragon Kings would find their mates but Constantine watched from the sidelines as his friends and fellow dragons fell in love. Knowing he hurt the woman he continues to loves, Con struggled to reveal the truth about the how and why, and in doing so, continued to punish his chosen mate. With the urging and push from the other Dragon Kings, Con goes on the offensive in an effort to reclaim the woman he loves. Meanwhile, former Light Fae Queen Usaeil, back from the dead, continues to seek revenge against the Rhi and the Kings, proclaiming herself to be Queen of All Fae but in order to achieve her goals, Usaeil needs more magic and power, and to do so , requires the sacrifice of someone with the power she needs. INFERNO is a culmination of close to thirty Dark Kings story lines (including novellas), four series, and several years of reader loyalty, and the inevitable climax wherein Con is finally reunited with his fated mate. For fans of the series, Con’s mate was ‘well-known’ secret; a continuous tease by the author, but a secret that was more or less a foregone conclusion. Several characters from all four series and spin offs played secondary and supporting roles, pulling together in an effort to end a war before it began. Secrets and surprises are revealed; twists and turns divulge information never before exposed, and in doing so, sets the stage for yet, another series spin off. A number of plot points have yet to be resolved including Henry and Meliss, the location and rescue of Useail’s nephew; and the truth about the dragons sent into the otherworldly portal-hopefully they will be addressed in the upcoming new release. INFERNO is a story of enduring love, heart breaking pain, betrayal, revenge, revelations and happily ever after. The premise is exciting, twisted, intriguing and heart warming; the romance is intimate and captivating; the characters are colorful, energetic, familiar and animated. INFERNO is a wonderful and welcome conclusion to Donna Grant’s DARK KINGS series.

Completely worth the wait. To have so much revealed in Con & Rhi's story was awesome. Love & friendship between so many different groups gives a reader restored faith. Love the whole DARK series, Kings introduced me to Warriors & Reapers. Totally worth the money.
