After surviving the trials of the Magic Games, mercenary mage Sera Dering is back home in San Francisco. She wants nothing more than to relax and finally have a long-overdue date with dragon shifter Kai.

Unfortunately, the universe has other plans.

When one of Kai’s employees is discovered dead, he enlists Sera’s help to solve the magical mystery surrounding the death. And sometime between fighting monsters, rescuing kidnapped children, thwarting pirates, and convincing a grumpy ghost to help her, Sera is determined to finish their date.

Magic Nights is the third book in the Dragon Born Serafina urban fantasy series.

The Dragon Born Series

The Dragon Born series can be read together or independently. Each series features a different protagonist (Sera, Alex, Naomi) and has its own story arc. There is also a larger story arc that connects all of the Dragon Born series together. If you enjoy seeing how the story lines work together, try the following reading order:

  • Mercenary Magic (Dragon Born Serafina, Book 1)
  • Magic Edge (Dragon Born Alexandria, Book 1)
  • Magic Games (Dragon Born Serafina, Book 2)
  • Magic Nights (Dragon Born Serafina, Book 3)
  • Blood Magic (Dragon Born Alexandria, Book 2)

  • Magic Immortal (Dragon Born Awakening, Book 3)
  • Shadow Magic (Dragon Born Alexandria, Book 4)


Magic Nights is book three in the Dragon Born Serafina series by Ella Summers.

I still haven’t read Alex’s story yet. Some reviewers say things make more sense after you read them, so it might be best to read the books in the order they should be read. Even with that this story is full of action, mystery, interrupted dates, and demons being summoned. It was fun, intriguing, and frustrating at times. 

I loved that Kai and Sera kept having their dates interrupted. It shouldn’t be that hard to take one evening off for dinner, dancing and a night of fun, but something always interrupted them. They took it well and eventually got their date and hot night together. 

I also loved Naomi, Sera’s friend. We spend so much time with her in this installment chasing down a kidnapped half breed fay child, meeting her family, and more. Naomi is a fun character and a really good friend to Sera. 

Before I move forward in the series I’m going to go back and read Alex’s story. I think things will make more sense and come together as a hole if I do that.

Magic Nights was a fast-paced read with great character development. The relationships for everyone in this story jump forward. As for the story it has an interesting setup, some plot twists, action, and romance. 

Rated: 4 Stars

    • The series has been enjoyable, but it does get expensive when you have to buy the other books in the World to fill in blanks. I’m glad that all the books in the different series are in Kindle Unlimited. Thank’s Jen for visiting.

  2. I would be curious to try!

    • It’s got an interesting precious, but to me the author is lacking in explaining the Dragon Born. So far it’s been enjoyable, but not a re-read type series. Thank’s for visiting!
