Breath of Fire
AND SHE WILL BE THEIR QUEEN
Cat Fisa’s warlord captor-turned-lover may have crowned her with the symbols of the three realms, but war is far from over. She believes in what Griffin is trying to accomplish. She believes that peace will finally come when the realms are united. And she believes that with her by his side, Griffin has the strength to change the world.
But with her dangerous past resurfacing and the neighboring royals out for blood, Cat and Griffin must strike soon if they want to unify the land without full-scale war.
They’ll do anything to avoid innocent bloodshed, including crossing the treacherous Ice Plains or entering the deadly Agon Games to win access to the royal court…and the very family they plan to usurp. When their desperate battle for survival is over, Cat and Griffin will either be standing side-by-side in the heart of their future kingdom—or not at all.
Discover exciting bonus material, including maps, illustrations, and an expanded look at the world of Thalyria. Fans of Jennifer Armentrout, Scarlett St. Clair and Sarah J. Maas will burn for this spicy romantic fantasy.

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.
Even better than the first book
This series is 🔥🔥 and has me completely hooked! The romance between G & C, the secondary characters, the twists and turns, etc., are all extremely well done and worthy of a five star review. Can’t wait to start book 3 but wish this series was longer!! This is a book world I will be sad to leave.
Absolutely love this series and cannot wait until the next book comes out!!
