The Kingmaker Chronicles: A Promise of Fire (Book 1) Breath of Fire (Book 2) Heart on Fire (Book 3, coming Fall 2017)
I could not wrap my mind around the disjointed way this book was written. It starts off with Griffin trashing his bedroom with Cat there and stalking off. Then she leaves to heal her broken heart in another room. He comes back and says she got it all wrong. I don’t think so. From there we go on one action packed adventure scene to the next full of violence and thrills. But it felt like just scenes linked together. Certainly scenes that were interesting but really didn’t feel like a cohesive story. I kept setting this book aside because it just wasn’t holding my interest. It took me forever to finish.
This book got a rating of 3 from me because if you are really into the Greek myths and like Game of Thrones then this book is “okay”. But for me personally it rated a 2 “disappointing”.
