#BookReview: Hearts Forged in Dragon Fire by Erica Hollis

Synopsis: For fans of Abigail Owen and Samantha Shannon comes a breathtaking, energetic novel where the only way to defeat a dragon is to outsmart it…

Most dragontongues don’t live long enough to learn from their mistakes. Lotte Meer is luckier than most, surviving long enough to communicate with the fierce, sullen, and temperamental dragons who are not above enjoying a human as a light snack. And she has the scars to prove it.

Now a massive, foul-tempered dragon has taken over the town of Morwassen's Pass, taking the citizens hostage. As long as they bring him their gold and treasure, he won’t reduce their city to a smoking heap of ash and death. Only, the treasure is running out and Lotte—with the help of sharp-tongued, unbelievably cute Maryse Basvaan—is their last and only hope. 

But this dragon is more cunning—and more cruel—than any other. Not only is he holding Lotte’s estranged mom captive, but he has a taste for betrayal…and somehow he’s stricken some kind of secret deal with the girl who’s already gone and stolen Lotte’s heart. 

Lotte won’t fail. She can’t. 

Because if she does…everyone dies.

My Review: For a book called Hearts Forged in DRAGON Fire this really didn't have as many dragons as I was hoping for.  People have told me that this is what to read next after Fourth Wing and Iron Flame and well after reading this I kind of want to slap them upside the head and ask them WTF this is NOTHING like those two books.  

This story lacked world building and real character development but the romance was petty good.  I liked the LGBTQ elements of the story.  But overall it lacked direction and execution.  I think this is going to be one of those stories that you either love it or hate it.  If we get anymore books set in this world I do not think I would pick it up.  And I am not sure if I will try anymore books by this author.
