Magical tattoo artist Dakota Frost is back—fighting a fire that may burn down the world.Magical tattoo artist Dakota Frost is back—fighting a fire that may burn down the world.
For millennia, ancient factions of wizards have closely guarded the secrets of liquid fire—distilled from the blood of dragons and the magical key to unbelievably powerful spells.
Now, Dakota’s flirtation with a fireweaver while visiting San Francisco engulfs her in a magicial feud. Forced to defend herself with her masterwork, a powerful dragon tattoo, Dakota becomes the target of superstitious magicians who believe she’s summoned the spirit of a dragon . . . the first step in an incredibly dangerous spell that could create more liquid fire.
Soon, Dakota finds herself caught in a magical battle between ageless wizards desperate to seize the rapidly dwindling supply of liquid fire and fireweaver terrorists who’ll stop at nothing to keep every last drop of it for themselves.
Even if that means killing Dakota.
The race is on to find the truth about liquid fire, the secret behind Dakota’s magic tattoos, and the message hidden in the fireweaver’s secret codes—before the world goes up in flames.
Its been awhile since the last novel in the Skindancer series, but I found myself quickly embroiled back into Dakota's world.
Dakota finds herself hip deep in a magical feud with her magical dragon tattoo becoming the center of a on going battle that might cost her her life.
Dakota is a delightfully strong, large and in your face woman that is completely ok with herself. It is not often you find a character that seems fully developed, but she really radiates this vibe that she knows her own mind.
Liquid Fire immerses the reader into a fantastically vivid and detailed world of myth, magic and science. Francis just has a way of pulling the reader in and keeping us there to stay.
I received this ARC copy of Liquid Fire from Bell Bridge Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication May 22, 2015.
