Melissa's Review:

A Promise of Fire is book 1 in the Kingmaker Chronicles. I've been seeing a lot of buzz about this series since it came out and finally decided to try them out. I'm so glad I did because I'm loving this world! I'm a sucker for books with mythology mixed in and with all the action this makes it a must read.

Catalia "Cat" Fisa is working as a soothsayer in a traveling circus to avoid her family she ran away from. Everything seemed to be going fine until a hunky man figures out she's the Kingmaker. She has strong abilities, can tell when someone lies, and can absorb the magic from others and use it herself to just name a few. Add in that the gods seem to be on her side lately and she's someone you want on your team. Anyway, Griffin and his men start their journey to take her back to Sinta, where he's second in command. There's tons of roadblocks along their way and while Cat wants nothing to do with these men, she can't help that she starts caring about them with each day. Though Griffin does basically abduct her, they wind up joining forces and romance blossoms. I loved that there is a romance aspect and we don't have to wait several installments to see something happen. I'm not really sure where the series is going to go at this point but you better believe I already grabbed the next book.

A Promise of Fire is a great start to a new series. I'm kind of disappointed in myself that I waited so long to read it, but at least I have a few more books I can binge read before waiting for a current installment. If you're a fan of mythology, fantasy and romance you have to try this series out.

Narrator:

This is my first audiobook with Mia Barron as the narrator and I thought she did a wonderful job. I don't have any complaints. She channeled the characters well and I already know I won't be able to do these books in any other format.
