Favorite Read & Review

I have been writing this blog for over a year now.  In that time I have shared a lot of my favorite authors and series, many of which I have been loyal to for many years.  And many authors that titles that I have sought just to be able to review for this blog and for my library job.  I wanted to take the time this summer to share my favorite book out of all of them.  This post has previously been on my blog and I stand behind it and will include the 2nd book in the series, Breath of Fire, as an EXCELLENT read as well (although not as good as the first).  I have re-read this book many times in the last year and hope you will like it too.  It was nominated for many new author awards in this genre as well.

My Original Review

As a librarian I sometimes receive advanced readers copies of books, to write reviews on and with the hope that I'll purchase copies for my library.  One of the more recent books I received was A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet.  Since I get a lot of ARCs, I don't also approach reading them with the best attitude.  They're often short, simple and not much to dwell on, this one COMPLETELY surprised me!  I loved it so much!

Cat is a mysterious figure that is protecting herself, her secret and everyone else that she lets into her life.  She is discovered by Griffin, the strong and powerful leader that has recently overthrown the royal family that's been in power for ever.  In a world were those with magic and power have ruled for as long as can be remembered, Griffin thinks he's discovered in Cat the secret to keeping his family in power during this time of turmoil.  But there's a lot more than meets the eye with her.  Kidnapping her may prove to help the realm but also may bring war to them all.

I loved reading this book and seriously hope that there will be more to the series.  I believe that there has to be at this point because although some things were resolved and there was a happy ending, there's still so much more that has to be dealt with.  Looking forward to them all, but dreading what will probably be a long wait for them to be published!

Breath of Fire is now available and Heart on Fire will be available in January 2018.
