"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."--Back cover… (lisätietoja)

This is everything I want in a book. Magic, secrets, adventure, danger, romance, likeable but flawed characters... I can't wait for the next! ( )

I first read this series because it kept appearing on sites when I was looking up books by Ilona Andrews, who I love. I was not disappointed, it's great. The story is fascinating and really well fleshed out. The characters are well rounded people who I love and hate at times but always care about. I cannot wait for the next book in this series so I can immerse mysyeld in this world again. ( )

PHENOMENAL new book from a debt author!

A Promise of Fire is book one in the Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet.

The cover pulled me in and I'm so glad I tried out this book. This was my very first fantasy romance read. I don’t understand why it took me so long to pick up this genre, but I am so glad that my first book in this genre was OUTSTANDING!

Amanda Bouchet did a SENSATIONAL job! I was so engrossed, that I lost track of time and when I needed to stop I didn’t want to. A Promise of Fire is loaded full of action, adventure, prophecy, and so much more. We get battles to fight and creatures from myths and legends to slay. Plus our characters have secrets that involve Gods and more.

The story is original and the author weaves a complex world with unique characters and a thick plot full of action. The beginning felt a bit slow, but once you get past the first chapter things pick up and move along fast.

Catalia was an interesting character. Her past is not pleasant, so she has learned to not let anyone get close and to keep her secrets to herself. But she will learn to open up and start healing. The Warlord Beta Sinta aka Griffin was a very sexy character and I love that he never gives up on Cat. These two still have a long way to go, but things are starting to change. I throughly enjoyed the verbal sparing Cat and Griffin do and how their relationship is developing. All the characters introduced in A Promise of Fire are pretty interesting and likable.

This story ended way too soon and left me wanting more. It captivated me and I can’t wait to dive deeper into the Kingmaker Chronicles series. I’m waiting on pins and needles for the next installment.

Rated: 4.5 Stars

I want to preface this by saying that I'm generally not nitpicky about certain themes in books - I actually have an entire shelf of questionable bodice ripper historical romance novels that I secretly love. BUT reading this was super uncomfortable because of how casual the abuse was and how the reader was being led to assume that the main character, Cat, deserved it. As though she was the one being difficult and should feel grateful that she was kidnapped and drug around by a rope because ultimately it was for a good cause and she would get to be part of their "team" if she could just behave and stop fighting them and trying to escape. I am actually kind of surprised that so many people rated this so highly. I feel kind of icky after getting through as much of this as I did. ( )
