The stakes are raised and the passion burns hotter in one
of the most anticipated Dark Kings novel from New York Times

The King of Silvers. Cunning,
perceptive, resourceful. Determined. Banished from Dreagan eons ago
because of a betrayal that shattered his entire existence, his sole
focus in life is to exact revenge against the Dragon Kings. A formidable
fighter with centuries of rage on his side, Ulrik will stop at nothing
to take down those who exiled him.

He has been alone, trusting no
one for thousands of years. Until she walks into his life. He
should not yearn for her, but there is no stopping the fiercely burning
attraction. When he’s with her, he isn’t thinking of war or revenge. He
only thinks of her, craves her. Burns for her. But soon he will be
forced to choose: Will he continue on his course of destruction or will
he be able to set aside his vengeance to save the woman who risked
everything for him.

I think Torched has been one of the most anticipated stories of this series. Ulrick has been banished from Draegan for centuries and has been building up his revenge and challenge to Con all this time. There may be spoilers for the previous books in this review so if you haven't started the Dark Kings yet, you may want to stay away from this review.

I know Ulrick is supposed to be an evil character and he started out on my bad side with a lot of the things he had done. But when it came to light I think Torched has been one of the most anticipated stories of this series. Ulrick has been banished from Draegan for centuries and has been building up his revenge and challenge to Con all this time. There may be spoilers for the previous books in this review so if you haven't started the Dark Kings yet, you may want to stay away from this review.

I know Ulrick is supposed to be an evil character and he started out on my bad side with a lot of the things he had done. But when it came to light that he actually didn't do all the things he was being accused of doing, I felt hope for him in my heart. He did still conspire with the Dark Fae, but he continued his friendship with Rhi. Rhi wouldn't have put up with him too much if she thought he was pure evil. After the discovery of the other dragon seeking revenge, Ulrick seemed to get more defensive of the Dragon Kings. For me, all the bad stuff fell to the other guy.

Ulrick is fearless and confident. His approach to handling his intended killer was pure Ulrick. So self-confident. But I love that she was able to bring out even more of the man of mystery and make you feel things for him. We know his story all along throughout the series, but you don't really get Ulrick's true feelings of betrayal and loss. Those feelings really come through in Torched and Ulrick tore open my heart and moved right in.

After all that Ulrick faces in Torched, alongside his potential mate, I think the book worked towards a compromise I really agreed with and was happy about. I'm not sure how things will continue because there are still wars to fight, and there are still Dragon Kings to find their mates, but I felt like this book was a BIG one, that has the potential to steer the series into a new direction.

Torched was definitely emotional and there were a lot of ups and downs for both our main characters. I love these two as a couple. They compliment each other so well and she doesn't put up with any of his crap. I look forward to how the Dragon Kings will contain the remaining conflicts in their lives. I'm also a little concerned for humans, but I think there are enough human mates that the possibility of the dragons turning against humanity is slim. The build up to the upcoming wars is exciting and we have a major power that needs put in her place. But who is going to be the one to do it! I can't wait to find out. I'm also still desperate to find out who Rhi's Dragon King was and if they will ever come together again.

This series is exciting with all of it's action and romance. The perfect combo to keep you on the edge of your seat, engrossed in the story for all hours.This review was originally posted on Rantings of a Reading Addict ...more

The 13th book of the series...

It is the most powerful redemption book that I have ever read that Ms. Grant have written. After Phelan and Aisley's story, I thought that was the best redemption..since Aisley was a focal point, then it was Dale. But I was wrong.

The King of Silvers, Ulrik, topped all of them.

It was a heartbreaking journey. From book one, up to this book. The tears I have shed, each time his past was shown with the previous books, I wanted to get the the whole story...however, The 13th book of the series...

It was a heartbreaking journey. From book one, up to this book. The tears I have shed, each time his past was shown with the previous books, I wanted to get the the whole story...however, reading parts of it, and reading the whole thing from his POV hurts more.

The emotions, both past, present, and the future are combined to in this book. It is hard to form words when you can feel the tears falling down on your cheeks. There is too much emotions in the book that you would like to be in it, just to ease the pain of the people I am reading.

A book like no other, Ulrik's story takes us in a whirlwind of emotions. Each page is full of doubt, betrayal, revenge, a thirst of power...but most importantly, it teaches us that love does heal. All you have to do is accept, to forgive, and to realize that each person has a different way to protect the people around them.

Brava, Ms. Grant! This is one amazing book, and I cannot wait to read the others. ...more

I have anxiously waited from the beginning for Ulrick's story. I could not even begin to imagine how it would all turn out or what the author had in mind for his story. This book exceeded my expectations. Fabulous way to resolve this untenable situation. Happy, as well, to see Erith ("Death" from the spin off series "Reapers") finally reveal herself to Con. But, oh, the new scenarios that were set up at the end of this book! Keep them coming! It is a great series.

Ulrik and Eilish’s relationship was beautiful. I loved every minute of it. Eilish was perfect for Ulrik. She saw through his protective shell and brought out the old Ulrik. She taught him to trust again. They gave each other their missing families and made them whole again. Their relationship was filled with love, fear, danger and also peace.

“When they were together, they were the only two people in the entire world. The past hurts and grievances and present pain and anger couldn’t touch them.”

A lot of new developments in the story happened as well. Mikkel’s crimes are finally brought to light and revenge is had. Usaeil has finally snapped and gone after both Con and Rhi. New updates on the mysterious weapon. I couldn’t put this book down. I love that this book was just as good the second time around. ...more

Okay so I don't want to give anything away since if you are like me and have followed the series you have been sitting on pins and needles waiting for this book.

Ulrik
The ultimate bad guy. The one who would not stop until he destroys the King of Kings and then unleashes his fury on the mortals, eliminating them from this world.

Eilish
Druid who has a mysterious past. A pawn for another evil man.

What happens when their paths cross and neither of them is ready for the sparks that fly.

I hoped that Donna would make good on her promise to give us some answers and closure on some issues the Kings have faced. Unfortunately we still don't know who Rhi's king is....but that's okay. You would not believe some of this information we get. Oh and Erith (Death) makes an appearance. Usuck, like that name better for her, is in for a few surprises and now, it's on. The gloves are off, let's get ready to rumble!

The "weapon" is missing....only spoiler you get.

I will say this though, there were a couple of moments where a tear or two might have been shed. But at the end, if you are devoted to the Kings you are going to be happy. Things are going to be okay.... ...more

I have looked forward to Ulrik's story and this did not disappoint! OMG, I loved every second of it. It is 386 pages long and I read it in one day; it was perfect and handled the backstory well and it was believable as Ulrik slowly came back into the fold with Con and Dreagan. Eilish was a strong, well developed character who was a perfect match for Ulrik. Their chemistry was explosive and they worked well together. I liked that she didn't push him or try to change him, which I believe is why I have looked forward to Ulrik's story and this did not disappoint!

I am not going to talk about any of the plot developments because I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but know that it is awesome and things that we want to happen, happen. ...more

This is one of the books in this series I was dying to read. It did not disappoint.

Ulrik is the King of the silver dragons. He has been banished from this home by Con, the King of the Dragon Kings for going off and attacking humans after he was betrayed by one.

Eilish is a powerful druid. She wants information on her mother that she never knew. She owns a pub called The Graves.

When Ulrik and Eilish meet they are taken with each other but Eilish is supposed to kill Ulrik. Will she be able to do it? If not what will the fallout be.

So much stuff happens in this book. So many questions get answered. Is Ulrik really as bad as we think? Is there a possible way to get a hppy ending in this story that is filled with heartbreak?

I am a HUGE fan of Donna Grant’s books and in particular the Dark Kings series and this is the one that I had been waiting for – Ulrik’s story!!

I have to say that I thought that the plot line was superb, it was completely addictive and I loved the story right from the outset. It was a complete page turner and I thought it had a brilliant ending. The book is fantasy but it is so realistic too with excellent characterisation and people you can really feel https://donnasbookblog.wordpress.com/...

It was great to be able to catch up with the main characters again and I was left shocked and angry as the story behind Ulrik’s past was finally revealed. I had really high expectations for this book and Donna Grant more than met them with what she has crafted.

No hesitation in giving this one 5 stars, it is for me the best book released to date in the series and wrapped up so many loose ends – I can’t wait to see how the story develops going forward now – very highly recommended!! ...more

Wow! I just finished Ulrik’s story and I’m so, so happy. Through all the 12 books I’ve always rooted for Ulrik. I never wanted him to be totally bad, never wanted him to do anything unforgivable. However, I was surprised to see who his love-interest is. She was one I thought was totally going to be bad. But, surprise!

And, jeez, I was surprised to hear what Ulrik’s special kind of magic was. I wondered how he’d saved Lily several books back but now I know. It’s awesome. I’m so glad Ulrik got his

Again it was so nice seeing so much of Rhi and Constantine in this book. And it’s almost past time for them to take care of Usaeil, the Fae Queen, who’s been a piece of crap for the past few books.

There was explicit sex in this, a couple of times, and the F-bomb was used 16 times.

As to the narration: Sometimes I can stand Antony Ferguson but sometimes I can’t. This was a can’t time. His women’s voices were just bad and when he did speak for a woman there is not an ounce of emotion in his voice, making the conversation totally ridiculous.

If someone asked me at the beginning of this series if I would ever love Ulrik or even like him, my answer would have no way! But things change. People change. And thank goodness for that because I really do like Ulrik. And no one is more surprised than me.

It takes something huge and amazing to cause the changes that took place in Ulrik. The women who stopped him thinking about revenge shall remain unnamed in my review. She is unique, though. Unexpected and surprisingly powerful. It's takes a woman like that to grab the attention of Ulrik.

From the very beginning of this series, Ulrik has been the bad guy. Yet it's hard to hate him since he was betrayed by not only the human he loved but the Kings he called brothers. The heat of that moment has lived within him for eons of time. And while he's done bad things, I never saw him as evil. And that has proven out as some of the deeds attributed to him have been shown to not be him at all. But the bitterness in him is not gone. He wants his old friend dead. It's the only way to deal with the betrayal, or so he believes.

Yet life has a way of draining some of the pain away. And others can help us see that revenge is not the right answer. It does nothing to fix the past. I like that this is demonstrated in this book. Ulrik is captivated by this women. She finds in him more than what he believes exists. And a compromise might be possible.

I loved how the story unfolded and kept me hoping yet wondering what would come next. This was one of my favorite books of this series. Because it's not just Ulrik that needs to come to terms with the past. It's not just Ulrik that has been represented as something that doesn't capture all of her. And it's not just Ulrik that needs to understand and heal.

There is a powerful connection between these two. They fight it and they want it in equal measures. They can't seem to resist the force between them. I very much enjoyed the romance and passion that captures these two. Very satisfying.

I can't wait for more from this series. I'm getting caught up on this one and then I'm diving into the spin-off. I can't wait for Con's book. It's all so good. If you love paranormal romance, then this series needs to be on your TBR list.

The King of the Silvers will capture your heart in this one. ...more

There’s no doubt that Torched by Donna Grant has been the most anticipated installment since the series’ inception! I’m a huge fan of Grant’s and her Dark Kings’ series.

If you are a newbie to Grant’s Dark Kings, they are men of The most anticipated installment since the series’ inception does not disappoint!

He needed no one.
For to trust was to be betrayed.

There’s no doubt that Torched by Donna Grant has been the most anticipated installment since the series’ inception! I’m a huge fan of Grant’s and her Dark Kings’ series. Ulrik’s story is hands-down one of the most powerful redemption books I’ve ever read and unquestionably my favorite of the entire series. If you are a newbie to Grant’s Dark Kings, they are men of power and magic who can shift into dragon form and have ruled over all other creatures for millenniums. When humans appeared, the Dark Kings protected them until they were betrayed and thousands of dragons were killed. The betrayal was made worse when they discovered that it came from a woman who had vowed to love one of the Dragon Kings – namely, Ulrik.

Ulrik is the King of the Silvers. He has been banished from the home of the Dragon Kings, Draegan in Scotland, for centuries. All this time, Ulrik has been building up his revenge and planning his expected challenge to his former brother, Con, the King of Kings. Ulrik has been painted as a super villain since the beginning. Grant’s heroes are especially delicious, and Ulrik is no exception. It’s amazing how having a new love in your life can change your perceptions and outlook.

That said, each page of Torched is teeming with doubts, betrayals, plans for revenge, and power plays. But, in the end, Ulrik’s story teaches us that love heals. His long-awaited tale told from his point-of-view tore at my heart and Grant succeeded in making me want to let him in.

The druid heroine in this tale has appeared in a few prior installments where she, too, has been villainized. My hat is off to Grant for redeeming them both so splendidly! That’s not to say that their path to redemption is easy. Readers will need to hang on for a roller-coaster ride!

This is the thirteenth installment in this series. I cannot conceive reading this book as a standalone as much that occurs is predicated on the past. However, if you are determined to do so, the romance in this installment is developed and comes to fruition in this book. Just know that there is a complicated overall series arc with many supporting characters with their own subplots. Grant interweaves it all beautifully – but I would think that it would be confusing for a newbie to be assailed with so much. This series is one of my favorite paranormal urban fantasy series. You will not regret starting this series from the beginning and reading it in order.

Following please find a few of my favorite lines from Torched:

“Fate will chew you up and spit you out many times, taking you away from those you love and dumping you into places you never wanted to be. It’s up to each of us where we choose to belong. We can either fight everything, or accept what we’re given and make the most of it”
---
“You and me,” Ulrik said. “No friendship has ever been stronger, and there’s nothing that will ever tear apart our bond.”
Con looked at him, a wide smile in place. “Brothers.”
“Brothers.”
---
“Do you normally take the time to get to know those you’re sent to kill?”
---
“We talked about a lot of things yesterday…”
She nodded, frowning. “Yep. Like the fact that you haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy. We need to remedy that. Actually, I need to baptize you in the entire Marvel Universe.”
“As you wish…”
---
They came together in a tangle of limbs as they touched each other, the kiss wild and feverish. A groan tore from him as her hands roved over his shoulders and down his back. Her caress was light and sensual, as if her desire seeped like magic from her fingertips into his skin everywhere she touched.

Torched contains jaw dropping revelations, kickass battles, steamy love fests, and fabulous twists that will keep readers guessing and on the edge of their seats. This emotional-whirlwind-of-a-story marks a BIG development in the series and is one that should not be missed if you are a fan. I confess that Torched kept me up until 3am on a workday – because there was no way I could put it down until I’d read every single word! It was a treat to see so much of Rhi and Constantine in this book. I am delighted that it appears that the time is fast approaching for thorn-in-our-side Usaeil, the Light Fae Queen, to be dealt a huge dose of comeuppance. I was also happy to see Erith aka “Death" from the Reapers spin-off series finally reveal herself to Con. I will be kept busy pondering over the many revelations herein until the next books.

Thankfully, next month will see two releases in this series: Dragon Night and DragonFire! Generating so much excitement over a book’s release is quite an accomplishment for Grant this many books into the series. She has managed to keep this series feeling fresh and interesting. She certainly did an exceptional job with this book. Bravos to Grant on such an amazing story! I’m still blown away days later!

Ulrik’s life changed when his brethren killed his woman all those years ago. He was filled with so much rage and he lashed out at the only people he could harm; the humans. He ordered his dragons to kill them all and thousands lost their lives before Ulrik was stopped. Several of the other Dragon Kings agreed with Ulrik, but Con decided to uphold the vow they made to protect the mortals, even if they were killing their dragons. The Kings worked together and bound Ulrik’s magic and Con banished him from Dreagan. He ended up going insane from all that was done and he used his need for revenge to claw his way back to sanity. He has found a way to get his magic unbound. Now all that’s left is for him to kill Con and take over the Kings and go back to the land he loves.

Ulrik’s Uncle Mikkel is still a thorn in his side though that must be eliminated. Mikkel was jealous of Ulrik’s father and then Ulrik when they became king of the silvers. Now he has aspirations to kill both Ulrik and Con and become king of kings. And he has enlisted the powerful druid, Eilish, to aid him in his task. He is using information on her mother that she never knew to force her to do his bidding. However, once she meets Ulrik, she starts to question her actions.

Meanwhile, the Kings keep acquiring enemies and things are about to come to a head. There could not be a worse time for Ulrik or Mikkel to finally challenge Con. Will the kings survive what lies ahead or will the sins of their past be their undoing?

I was so excited to see this was Ulrik’s book! I’ve been waiting for him to finally be redeemed throughout the series (and the Reapers series as well). I was expecting a truly epic read, so this story did fall a little flat for me. There was a lot of blah blah blah and then Ulrik found himself in an insta-romance, which was still kind of blah, if I’m being honest. The resolution between him and Con seemed rather instant … too instant really. Which don’t get me wrong, I liked how it all worked out, it just seemed so sudden.

The epilogue was a bit choppy as we got a preview of what is to come. I think we just got a glimpse of Con’s future mate, who we’ve met before if you’ve kept up with this series and the Reapers. There will be one angry actress when she gets wind of it!

Overall this was an okay read, I had just hoped for more out of Ulrik’s story.

“Fate will chew you up and spit you out many times, taking you away from those you love and dumping you into places you never wanted to be. It’s up to each of us where we choose to belong. We can either fight everything, or accept what we’re given and make the most of it–Ulrik”

This series just keeps getting better and better.

Donna's authors note in the beginning about how she didn't know if Ulrik could be redeemed is the perfect way to start this book. Over the past few books, we've seen that good and evil aren't always black and white or Dark and Light. Ulrik has had centuries to finesse his plot to challenge Con, destroy the kings and unleash the dragons on earth removing us mortals from it. However, underneath it all, is that what he actually wants?

I loved Eilish and Ulrik together. Donna Grant's characters are strong willed and multi-layered. Eilish's strength, drive, and compassion are what Ulrik needs to realize his quest for vengeance isn't the answer.

I was glad to see the end of some characters and can't wait for the end of a few others. As I've stopped reading the Reaper series after the second book, I was a little surprised to see Bran, Cael, and Death show up here. I'm hoping we don't need to read both series as we get closer the final book in this one. Although reading reviews from the most recent Reaper's book, the crossover seems to be happening. Honestly, I can only handle the drama from one couple that seems to never get together as the series progresses. Hello Rhi and Con?! Not sure I can handle Cael and Death's as well 😉.

I'm counting down the months for Dragonfire. ...more

I can’t wait for the next one where I hope that B***H Usaeil finally gets demolished once and for all. Grrrrr! I hate that horrible creature! ...more

One word, outstanding!

As usual, another awesome read! I couldn't put the book down and devoured it in a day! Love, redemption, forgiveness, and one wale of a cliffhanger! Grab a box of tissues and get lost in the realm of dragons! This book had me crying one minute , then shouting for joy the next! Miss Donna hit a home run with this installment.

Yay, Ulrik's book! I've been waiting for this book for almost as long as Rhi's book (hint, hint, Ms. Grant)!! Loved it, especially as there's a ton of plot development in the overall arc. Can't wait for the next one!

Torched

OMG! I've cried off and on through this whole book. Part from sadness part from happiness. I read a LOT of books by different authors but I haven't found another that holds your attention like Donna Grant. She has you mind, body and soul from the beginning. Her Dark King series is so fascinating and spellbinding you don't even know you're caught. You must read her books and for goodness sake keep them because you are going to want to read them over and over. There should be more than Torched

TORCHED is the thirteenth full-length instalment in Donna Grant’s contemporary, adult DARK KINGS paranormal/fantasy romance series focusing on the Dragon Kings and the women they love. TORCHED should not be read as a stand alone as this is Ulrik, King of the Silvers’ story line, a story line that has been developing since the first instalment. 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. The Dark Fae and their King Taraeth, along with the Ulrik the Silver Dragon King and his uncle Mikkel have declared war on the Dragon Kings by exposing the dragon’s existence to humankind. The last wars between man and the world of the paranormal saw a great loss of life on all sides-but Ulrik wants revenge against King Constantine of the Dragon Kings; Mikkel wants to become King of the Silvers, and the Dark Fae want the Dragon’s hidden weapon in order to rule Scotland and the rest of the world. Told from several third person perspectives that follow several intersecting paths TORCHED focuses on the King of the Silvers Ulrik as he struggles with his waning need for revenge against the King of Kings versus his duty to protect the dragons he still considers brothers and friends. Thousands of years earlier, Ulrik pledged vengeance against King Constantine for the death of the human woman he once loved- a woman whose betrayal would have meant the death of them all. In the ensuing war between dragon and man, Ulrik killed thousands of humans before Con banished his brother locking his magic and ability to shift. Fast forward to present time wherein Ulrik has worked diligently to reclaim what is rightfully his only to be hindered at every turn by a familiar dragon. With his Uncle Mikkel, working together with a powerful Druid, Ulrik soon turns his vengeance against one of his own. Meanwhile a beautiful woman of immense power, struggles between good and evil, as she searches for the mother she never knew. With Ulrik’s guidance, she will come into her own, as she steps into a war between heirs to the Silver throne. The turn of events in the impending war between the dragons and the Fae begins to unravel as Con and Queen Usaeil no longer see eye to eye; and Rhi is no longer welcome back to the place she has always called home. TORCHED is a heartbreaking, detailed and revealing story line where lines are drawn, friendships forged, redemption and forgiveness offered and accepted. One-time friends will become enemies, as long-time relationships crash and burn. The author brings together Death and her Reapers, along with the return of the Druids and Warriors, for some much needed back up, if only to connect all of the back stories, magic and series into one. Donna Grant’s DARK KINGS is a spirited, thrilling and exhilarating series. TORCHED is a dramatic tale of restitution, reclamation, absolution and love.

Beautiful and a long time coming, after being banished from the life he knew, vengeance has been his only motivation - until her. Eilish is a powerful druid looking for her mum. Both come together in one of trust and breaking down those walls. Absolutely enjoyed it. A glimpse and a tease about Rhi and her DK, especially the changes to her inner light. I'm looking forward to the next DK story.
