KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER…
BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT
Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods—and her homicidal mother—have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.
Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm—until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

I flat out love it.
I flat out love it.
I fell in love instantly with the mythology, god based world and found myself captured to the end.
You know when your reading a book and the WOW factor just strikes, A Promise of Fire is just such a book.
Captured by a warlord, Griffin, while hiding in plain site as a circus performer, Cat finds herself thrust back into a world of power, greed and magic. Her abilities are amazing but her blood could be her downfall.
Making many friends and some enemies along the way, anyone in the bid for power would see Cat as a threat or a huge assesst.
The last thing she wants is for her psychotic mother will find her.
There was not one thing I didn’t like about A Promise of Fire, unless you count it ended to soon. The characters and world are well developed but not over described, the plot was vivid and amazingly conceived with twist and turns that kept you enthralled and the sexual tension that develops between Griffin and Cat…makes you want to read on and on.
This one is going on my favorite shelf.
I received this ARC copy of A Promise of Fire from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for a honest review.
It's hard finding authors who know how to write really greats stories. With characters that are funny and relatable, and with scenes that actually make you laugh out loud and also make you feel like your heart is being torn out along with the characters. There is only a handful of authors that I would buy their book without even reading the back, simply because they wrote it, and I'm excited to say that Amanda Bouchet is now one of them!!
Love & Adventure
I like stories with love, adventure, and humor…There seem to be so few to be found! Most romance novels I find to be lacking in one way or another but this was a wonderfully satisfying story…I cannot hardly wait until January for the next one! Wonderful characters…original story…sexual tension throughout…really - it doesn’t get much better than this!
