Peek Inside Fanning the Flames

She isn't afraid of anything...except losing the knight she loves.

Bryn McKenna has it all, including her smoking-hot knight turned live-in boyfriend, Valmont. Even though she’s a hybrid dragon, she’s finally fitting into the new shape-shifting dragon world that’s become her own. But her grandparents want to ruin everything by making Bryn’s nightmare of an arranged marriage to Jaxon Westgate a reality. It doesn’t help that Jaxon’s father is on a witch hunt for Rebel sympathizers and Bryn finds herself in his line of fire.

If she doesn’t say, “I do,” she’ll lose everything. Good-bye flying. Good-bye best friends. Good-bye magic. But if she bends to her grandparents’ will and agrees to marry Jaxon, she’ll lose the love of her life—her knight.

The Going Down in Flames series is best enjoyed in order.
Reading Order:
Book one: Going Down in Flames
Book two: Bridges Burned
Book three: Trial by Fire
Book four: Fanning the Flames


5 stars: "This is a well-written story, and it flows quickly and smoothly, easily capturing and keeping your attention throughout. There is some violence and character death (which is to be expected with a rebellion/battles) as well as some torture. All the teenagers are forced to mature quickly. [...] The end has some closure but is left open for the next book, which I will be anxiously waiting to read!"-Olivia Farr, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: "Another amazing addition to the Going Down in Flames series. This one is teeming with tantalizing twists and can move fluidly from brazen to tender and heartfelt in one page. Chris Cannon is a powerful writer, able to make you feel every single word from the first page to the last." -Kristin Carfi, Books in Brogan

5 stars: "As a huge fan of the Going Down in Flames series, I have to commend Fanning The Flames for being another fantastic book in this series. There is no lull in either the pace or quality of the series, it's as sharp and as interesting as ever. Bryn has come a long way from who she was in book one and it showed in her character, decision and behaviours. The witty Bryn once again captured my heart and made me enraptured in another wonderful piece of her journey. Fanning The Flames started with action and from there it was a fun filled ride." -Cassie James, author of Queen of Fire

4 stars:  "[I]t was more like reaching the end of the first part of a conclusion, like Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1, you understand why it was played out this way but you're left hungry for more." -Gia Shaw, Goodreads Reviewer

"I'm kind of in it to win it at this pointWith everything that happened in the last quarter of the book, I need to know how it all goes down for Bryn." -Kristin Bingham, Book Sniffers Anonymous

When I saw that Chris Cannon had a new Dragon book out, I was so excited as I couldn't wait to get back into the adventures, trials, and tribulations that Bryn and her group of friends go through.

“Fanning the Flames” is the continuation of a series about people who shift into dragons. Dragons live by a strong division along the lines of colors, which dictates who they will marry and what kind of jobs they will hold. Bryn is a rare (and often despised) hybrid who has been accepted into the... ...more

See Ana's full review at The Book Hookup!!

This is another fun read and I really enjoyed it. The story picks up where the last book left off and continues the adventures of Bryn, Jaxon, Valmont, and the rest of the gang. There are some expected elements here but also many unforeseen surprises as w... ...more

By Gia February 25, 2017

Well this book was a bit of a contradiction 3.75

How to put this... I'd say roughly 80% of this book moved along at a fairly sedate pace, which wasn't a bad thing, just different to previous instalments, but I definitely won't be describing it as action packed.

Things started to pick up in the las... ...more

By books are love March 19, 2017

Overall love the book and series. this is more action packed than the last and we get to see more of Jaxon and who he really is. We also get more of selfish Bryn. She seriously doesn’t take in account Valmont’s feelings. She thinks of her own life and future. Doesn’t think hey valmont may not lik... ...more

By Carrie March 18, 2017

These books are just wonderful to read. All the pages seem to fly by (ha! get it? this is a dragon shifter book!) and I'm left wanting even more with each new installment.

Have you ever completely understood why something had to happen yet your heart still fought it? Me too.

Bryn McKenna is a hybrid dragon that has a dragon knight named Valmont. She lives in a world where arranged marriages are done to keep blood lines pure. Too bad she's in love with her knight and not her intended, Jaxon Westgate, but that's okay because Jaxon is in love with someone else too.

I was given this ARC from the publisher for an honest review.

First of all, I love this series. So, in an effort to be honest, this review could be slightly biased. Although, I haven't given all of the books in the series 5 stars, so I am obviously not that biased. But this one definately deserves... ...more

Suspense. Humor. And a lot of heartbreak.

Growing up is hard to do. For a hybred dragon it seems ten times worse. Poor Bryn has to make some painful decisions among some fantastic discoveries in this next emotional installment of the series. Can't say I agree with her choices, but as the story unf... ...more

By Kendal March 06, 2017

The only way to describe this book is that it's like riding a rollercoaster in the dark. You have no idea what's coming. You think you are going left and it goes right. You think it's coming to an end and you go upside-down. This book was everything I hoped it would be and more. It is by far my f... ...more

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

This one wasn't as action packed and fast paced as the previous books, but so many things happened that needed to happen in order to move the story forward. Plus, there was a little more mystery this time with secret tunnels and hidden treasures.
