Who is Catalia Fisa?
With the help of pivotal figures from her past, Cat begins to understand the root of her exceptional magic, her fated union with Griffin Sinta, and Griffin’s role in shaping her destiny.

Only Cat holds the key to unlocking her own power, and that means finally accepting herself, her past, and her future in order to protect her loved ones, confront her murderous mother, and taking a final, terrifying step—reuniting all three realms and taking her place as the Queen of Thalyria.

What doesn’t kill her will only make her stronger…we hope.

OMG – this author is killing me!!!

As with Breath of Fire, Heart on Fire opened with a BANG!

Heart on Fire continued shortly after where Breath of Fire ended. But compared to book 2, books 3 was so much more thought provoking, emotional and raw.

The jokes and funny quips were missing. It was palpable that Cat and Griffin were preparing for war. The gods were keeping an eye on Cat and when necessary gave her the unequivocal truth, but her own decisions laid heavy on Cat’s shoulders. She had such a HUGE heart and took her responsibilities incredibly personal and serious.

This book answered so many questions. I was fascinated by Cat’s backstory and the truth behind the gods machinations, and why they’ve always played such a huge role in her life. It almost felt like a lesson in mythology – which was not a hardship at all.

Cat and Griffin were as strong as ever – they are for a reason one of my most favorite fantasy couples. They understood each other in a way that other couples could only dream about. But of course this book wouldn’t have been a worthy sequel if they wouldn’t have been put through the wringer at times, just to come out stronger on the other side.

War times are never easy and Books about going to war are never easy to read either. I thought the author did a great job of building momentum, and I was on the edge of my seat during most of the book. Even though the book was about HOPE, JUSTICE, and NEW BEGINNINGS, to get to that point, sacrifices had to be made. And that had me sweating bullets. I couldn’t keep myself from turning pages like a maniac just so I could find out what would happen next.

But, knowing how important this book was – and how unavoidable the confrontation with Cat’s mother was – Heart on Fire wasn’t my favorite book in this series. Maybe because I absolutely ADORED Breath of Fire, the light and funny moments between all the characters, but especially Cat and Griffin made it a standout novel. Compared to book 2, Heart on Fire was much more sobering and undeniably raw in regards to hardships and lessons Cat had to learn. She needed more personal growing and time to find her magic, but unfortunately time ran out. The importance of what was to come was palpable and made the air crackle. Heart on Fire was a solid and very satisfying conclusions to an AMAZING series.

So many characters found a happy place. And many more could be potential couples, which made me think that maybe the author had more books coming. I would be delighted to read more about my favorite characters, more books in the Kingmaker Chronicles would make me incredibly happy.

One thought on “Heart on Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #3) by Amanda Bouchet

  1. Great review. I really loved this book so much. The author has done a great job with this pair. But I agree that it had a more emotionally raw feel to it, which I have NO problem with 🙂 I am interested to see what she will do next.
