I AM CATALIA FISA,
AND I DO NOT BREAK
Deep breath in. Long breath out. The Gods are telling me I’m some sort of new Origin, which apparently means it’s my job to give Thalyria a fresh start. Griffin crowned me with the symbols of the three realms.
If I’m supposed to be not just a queen but the Queen, I’d better start acting like it.

Bouchet ramps up the excitement in her second Kingmaker Chronicles fantasy romance (after A Promise of Fire) with high-intensity passion; adrenaline-fueled battles of wits, magic, and might; a host of magical creatures; and enough politics and world-shaking to keep readers eager for the final volume. Catalia Fisa is the "impetuous," "reckless," and "terrifyingly selfless" Lost Princess, inheritor of the bloodline of the gods. She has become both the lover of Sintan warlord Griffin and a key piece of his strategy to unite the three realms of Thalyria under a single ruler. But her powerful, sadistic mother, Andromeda, stands in their way at every turn. Bouchet treads gently as she develops the larger-than-life aspects of her setting, and godly support and oracular wisdom build dramatic tension around the idea of fate without falling into deus ex machina. Griffin's good intentions make his possessive alpha jealousy feel loving, Cat's sharp tongue and personal insecurities balance her magical powers, and the emotional complexity of the relationships among their fellow fighters supports a feeling of camaraderie that makes the fight scenes really work.
Fantasy to ignite the imagination
In a world where magic and power rule, Cat has been hiding in plain site. But now that Cat’s cover has been blown she must dig deep into herself to find the strength to survive. As the heir to the most wicked and power hungry queen alive, Cat knows she is in her mother's sights. The only thing left for Cat to do is to prepare to fight.
Griffin is willing to stand by Cat’s side, but what will be the cost of Cat trying to take her place?
Unexpected allies, strength from friends and a love that won't cease, Cat finds herself wanting to make this world a better place.
A profound premise with flawed and humanized characters, Breath of Fire ignites the imagination while the action keeps the reader enthralled. With an intense, suspense-filled plot and a romance that pulls at your heart string, I couldn’t help but love the second installment in the Kingmaker.
I received this ARC copy of Breath of Fire from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for a honest review.
Absolutely love this series and cannot wait until the next book comes out!!
