    Amazing conclusion!!!

    What a great ending to Cat and Griffin’s story. I’ve loved everything leading up to and including this book. This is fantasy at its finest and Ms. Bouchet has set the bar high for other aspiring writers as well as those already established in the genre. Once more filled with Gods and magic, creatures of the Gods and internal battles along with violent physical battles, Heart on Fire is action packed. I have struggled with Cat’s repeatedly not getting her magic right until she or those around her were almost dead, but I never realized that this was the true test. I appreciated the way this author brought us to this end. The romance once more takes a back seat and yet the love Cat and Griffin have for each other and their family is the very core of the story. Cat is tested again and again throughout this series, but it is here that she faces her final life changing challenge. There are no words to express the way this story spreads itself out and then wraps you up within itself. Absolutely loved it! This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Sourcebooks.

    Heart on Fire

    This was a good book and a satisfying read. The first half of the novel was great but the middle suffered from some serious pacing problems. Long tedious philosophical debates and a frustrating inability to move on from self-blame, guilt and the past, altered the feel of this section of the novel. By the last few chapters, we were up to pace and the book was wonderful again. As a whole this is one of the best series I have ever read. Way to go!

    A solid series ending

    There was plenty of action in this one but like the previous book, the Gods and Goddesses were often popping in in the nick of time to help Cat along. I would have preferred a bit less interference but I also understand that they need Cat to succeed in order to change Thalyria for the better. However, even with all their butting in, Cat still has a lot of work to really come to terms with her powers and her purpose. She does a lot of learning and growing in this book, especially because now she has an unborn daughter to think about. Although she figures it out, it took a long time and she’s incredibly reckless with her life and others. After coming this far I would have expected more maturity out of Cat but it’s just not there. As usual, I liked Griffin and appreciated his support of Cat. His love and devotion never wavers and he’s truly the partner that Cat needs in this journey. Both Cat and Griffin do a lot to prop each other up when things get too tough. There are a lot of emotional and mental blows in this book that strive to set back this power couple and keep them from winning. It was clear from beginning to end that these two love each other and that love is as much their destiny as peace in Thalyria. However, they did get a bit insufferable a few times when they were soooo lovey dovey in the worst possible moments. On one hand, their love is epic and beautiful and on the other I wanted them to focus on the upcoming war. For me, the biggest problem I had was with the last 20% of the book which seemed to drag on and on. I did not expect what was coming but it also took a long time to get through the battle and the scenes that follow it. Much of that part of the book involves Cat realizes some important things so we’re pretty much there for each little bit being discovered. However, it felt like it went on for too long for me. I’m also really upset about something that happens to a side character and I can’t really say I’ve come to terms with it. That’s of course personal and nothing against the story, but I really wish it had been different.

    A bit of a disappointment

    I hate to say it but this was a bit of a disappointment. I really expected to love this book. I wanted to love this book. I didn't like this book nearly as much as the two previous books in the series. I thought it was okay and I am glad that I read it. This is the third book in the Kingmaker Chronicles and this review may contain spoilers from previous installments in the series. My experience with this book goes back to when I first saw the cover. I immediately thought that it wasn't the real cover and someone had uploaded fan art or something to Goodreads. I kept checking to see when the real cover would be uploaded. Weeks went by. I decided to go to the author's website to see if she had the cover posted and discovered that what I was seeing was in fact the real cover. I was shocked. I think that the covers for the first two books are awesome. This one is not. I kind of hate this cover. I decided that it was just a cover and it was just a cover and I could ignore it and focus on what was in the book. I think it might have actually been some kind of sign. Cat kind of drove me nuts in this book. I don't know why but she annoyed me. I didn't enjoy being in her head and I felt like this book spent a lot of time there. Cat is pregnant which puts everything in a new light. I understand how focused an expectant mother can be when it comes to her baby but all the talk of the little bean was too much for me. Don't get me wrong...I did like the book. There were some pretty awesome scenes in this installment and I had no idea how Cat would get herself out of some of the situations she found herself in. There was some real excitement in the story and I was happy to see all of the characters that I have grown to love over the course of the series play a role. There were some pretty major revelations that really explained a lot. I do recommend this series to others. This book does wrap up Cat and Griffin's story and has some great scenes. I did enjoy the two books leading up to this one a whole lot more but found this to be a satisfactory conclusion. I would not hesitate to read more from Amanda Bouchet in the future. I received an advance reader copy of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via Edelweiss.
