Book CoverVeena’s review of Heart On Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles, Book 3) by Amanda Bouchet
Romantic Fantasy published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 02 Jan 18

The adventure continues as Cat, Griffith, and their companions now set their sights on the toughest challenge yet: Cat’s mother.  This last book in the series continues in the same intense vein, as they face new and different challenges. 

The first comes shortly after the story opens when Cat and Griffith encounter his brother and sister on the road. Piers unexpectedly calls upon Ares to take Cat away and free his brother and family from her influence. Poor Griffith and Kaia, both of whom witness this event in heartbreak. Fortunately, it does have a silver lining in revealing some long-hidden truths to Cat, as well as taking her further on her path to self-discovery.

First to the Ippotane to seek protection for their new borders sealing that alliance with Cat’s sister and the Ippotane alpha. Then off to the ice plains Cat and Griffith go to seek the magic that Cat needs in order to confront and defeat her mother. Soon they are knee deep into the opening battles of the war that is to be forged to win the last stronghold they need in order to create a united Thalyria.  This part of the story is narrated in a very Homeric way, weaving in much of the Greek pantheon who come to the aid of Cat and Griffith.

New friends are made, old friendships renewed as this exciting chapter keeps your adrenaline pumping.

Grade: B


Without Griffin—and apparently a few meddling Gods—to push me along, I’d still be telling fortunes at the circus, lying about my past, ignoring my future, and living as far away from my tyrant mother as humanly possible.
True understanding thuds into place. Hope isn’t just an abstract concept; it’s me. Flesh and blood me. Griffin knew it all along. Probably everyone did. I’m an idea in human form.
I have the power of the Gods at my fingertips.
The only thing ever stopping me has been me.
