Following the death of her uncle, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN finds herself in the midst of a trio of quintessential alpha male suitors in 22nd century sovereign America where human females should be seen and not heard.

Theo Pendragon claims her as his ward, ordained to guard her through to a long-awaited destiny unbeknownst to Cait, but finds more than he expected when passion ignites within the dragon for the first time. Always drawn to the pursuit of knowledge rather than the heat of desire, powerful demigod Dante cannot deny everything his future holds in Caitriona. America's monarch, ancient vampire Corrin, has no interest in the frivolity of love, yet marrying Cait could be the answer to his continued survival.

Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to choosing a husband knowing the consequences are eternal, the love undying, and the bond timeless.

My Review 4

Fire of Stars and Dragons is the debut novel for Melissa Petreshock.  And it is an impressive debut!

Fire of Stars and Dragons is a story that centers on Caitriona (Cait), a young woman who is destined for greatness.  Cait is suddenly surrounded by a dragon, a demigod and a vampire king, who are all competing to be her husband. At first I was confused and overwhelmed with all the characters of the story, so I wished the author would have included a brief prologue to describe this future version of Earth.  It was surprising that there was a vampire king as a ruler, so I am curious to know how that came to be. But as I continued to read bits of information was given and I became more comfortable with the story.

Even with the slow start I was really impressed with the authors writing. The story is written in 4 point-of-views which was a great way to get to know each of the characters. But I was really impressed with how distinct the POVs came across. Cait is young, smart and independent so her thoughts and comments were direct and feisty, whereas the other 3 POVs (Theo, Dante & Corrin) were proper and regal since they are thousands of years old. The changes between POVs flowed smoothly and it was entertaining to see the author switch her writing style and attitude. I loved Cait because she was a strong female character, which I always want to read in books.  And I fell in love with Theo, the sexy dragon who is completely devoted to Cait (no matter if she decides to marry someone else). There was so many swoon worthy moments with Theo, I wanted more!

Fire of Stars and Dragons has romance, action and mystery – everything that fantasy fans will love! This is a series I can’t wait to read more of!!

This book is labelled as a New Adult genre but there is sex scenes that I feel is too descriptive for young readers, so I suggest this book to readers 18 years and older.
