Review: A Promise of Fire

I came across A promise of Fire in my Amazon recommendations for books I would like based on my purchase history. I was not disappointed, this is a great read and I have become an instant fan. I love fantasy novels that feed the imagination and clearly depicts the human nature; showcasing our ability to love and to fight for what we believe in.



A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Promise of Fire is an epic magical adventure, Catalia “Cat” Fisa has mastered the art of blending in.She also has powerful magic that she doesn’t know the full extent of; Cat hides from the world afraid to be used as a puppet while nursing wounds from her tortured past. Cat is a powerful Kingmaker hiding from her destiny and her psychotic mother who would stop at nothing to have her in her grips.

Griffin is a mysterious warrior trying to bring peace to his newly conquered Territory; when his eyes first land on Cat he knew they were meant to be and from that day on their fates would be forever entwined. Griffin helps Cat confront her fears and he shows her that together they would do the impossible.

This is a story of fate and believing in yourself. The pace of A Promise of Fire is fast paced, Ms Bouchet phenomenal story building skills is beautifully showcased in this page turning adventure. A Promise of Fire introduces new creatures and realms as well as giving life to well-known Greek gods like Zeus, Poseidon, Artemis etc.

The description of the realms appealed to all of my senses, I was in Sinta (one of the realms) when I read this book. Each scene drives the reader deeper in to the story, making close friends and becoming family with each character. This is a hold on to your seat, jaw dropping, in your face magical adventure. I recommend this book to fantasy lovers everywhere. A promise of Fire combines romance and fantasy in a way I haven’t seen in a while. It is refreshing, and a hard book to put down. I recommend reading A promise of fire as soon as you can because the adventure continues with Breath of Fire set to be released on January 3rd, 2017.

Breath of Fire is the second book in the Kingmaker Chronicles, you can pre-order it on any of the links below.



I want to thank all my readers for taking the time to read my reviews. I truly enjoyed reading new books and I hope you find a good book to read from my recommendations.
