Reviews Heart on Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles, #3)

  • Val Shameless ⚓️ Steamy Reads ⚓️
    4.5 Solid StarsThis was an incredibly satisfying ending to a series I really enjoyed.In this third installment, a lot of questions left by the first two books were finally answered; questions about Cat, questions about the Gods, and questions about stuff I don't necessarily want to even mention because it would tip you off (and possibly spoil something) by mentioning it so blatantly. Griffin and Cat are definitely one of my favorite romance coupl...
  • Katerina
    “Do you know what I have in my heart? I have hope. And I'll share it with the world.” And she did. Cat shared with me her hope, her dreams, her fears, her lust and her love, she set my heart ablaze, and left me a wet, sobbing mess. “I am mercy, but I am also death.” As expected, Heart on Fire was the perfect blend of steam, humor and heart-pounding adventure! Once again, Amanda Bouchet excelled in the fantasy romance genre, and encompa...

    Review also found at Dust Off Your MacHalo Blog.This is the final book in the Kingmaker Chronicles trilogy (well, I suspect there will be more books set in the same world, but it concludes the three-book arc). The book begins with a shocking betrayal before Cat and Griffin head off to find a potion to help her unlock her powers, since they haven’t been reliable.I’m not quite sure how to even properly write this review because I love the world...

    Man that was incredibly disappointing after the love I had for the first two books. This is going to be short and to the point.This is probably the biggest reading disappointment I've had all year long. This book was one of my most anticipated since devouring the first two in the series and after dropping everything to dive into the amazing world Bouchet created in those books this was such a let down. Nothing felt the same ... not the characters...

    *** 2.44 ***A buddy read with my friend Iain, since we obviously never stop reading:):):) "...“I’m… “ I stop, at a loss.Griffin lifts his eyebrows. “Inarticulate at the moment?”Scowling, I thwack him in the chest.“Overwrought?” he supplies, his mouth quirking up.I thwack him again.“Highly emotional?”Thwack. Thwack.“Apparently weak, because none of that hurt at all.”..." Yeah, weak... This is how I felt about this book and...

    I thought about changing this review as I knew I didn't describe my thoughts well when I initially wrote it. I think what I was trying to get across is that we see a lot more heroes (male) leading than heroines (females). That we're almost conditioned to have a hero lead or step in and save the day. I think we're seeing (movies more than books) where most of the heroines are the side-kick. Whether it be a book or a movie if you see the terms hero...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.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 e...
  • Lover of Romance
    This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceIn Heart On Fire we have a stunning finale of the Kingmaker Chronicles and this book was a BLAST of goodness, delights, shocks and terrors and with typical Bouchet flare, keeps you on the edge of your seat. We get more into the head of our daring heroine Catalina Fisa. Catalina we have seen through in the previous two books, as she grows and learns into her powers and abilities with her husb...

    4.5 stars It tears my heart a little bit to give less than 5 stars but I don't have a choice.The book was amazing. I was grinning like a fool the whole time I was reading it. I believe that the author is extremely talented and the world and the characters that she created will stay with me for a long time. It will be a joy to re-read the 'Kingmaker Chronicles' .Now, the reason for my tiny disappointment. I don't really know what it was. The endi...

    Großartige Trilogie !!!
  • Caitlin
    I wanted a little bit more of an epic conclusion for this book but overall I adored this book and I adore this entire series. I’ll write a full review closer to the release date! Thank you Netgalley for providing me with an ARC

    I received an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*The thrilling conclusion in the Kingmaker Chronicles had everything I loved in a good NEW Adult fantasy! Action, banter, romance, and tragedy. Cat and Griffin will have to win the war against Cat's mom in order to unite the realms and rule as one. But there are far more deadly forces than they expect.The beauty of the book was the inner...

    ⭐2.5 stars⭐ A crushed spark never ignites. That's not how you fan the flame. That was disappointing. The ending was a big fat "meh" (and I'm being nice here) and if there is ever another book or a novella after this to tie up the huge amount of lose ends, I might come back and fix my rating. But right now I'm angry. I honestly kept reading this for the Beta Team and none of them got any closure. Not cool. (view spoiler)[And what the hell wa...
  • Maria V. Snyder
    This is the conclusion to the Kingmaker series. If you made it this far it means, like me, you're invested in the characters and wish to see how the overall story ends - Amanda does a great job of making each book it's own stand alone while still having the overarching plot.I enjoyed this book and it's worth the read - especially if you've read the first two. And I'm going to miss Beta Team and Griffin the warlord (swoon). There are two reasons t...
  • Beth
    I completely loved it. I finished reading Heart on Fire and went right back and started a re-read of all three books in this series again. My only hope is that Bouchet continues this series and gives us closure for the few open plot lines for the side characters, I'm caught up with the what ifs and where would that plot direction go?I received an ARC copy of Heart on Fire from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca. This is my honest and voluntary review. Heart ...
  • Al *the serial series skipper*
    An epic conclusion to the series, made even more so because Cat stopped crying to the gods willy-nilly, book 2 almost gave me a headache. I will miss this series, i was wishing for more even as I flipped to the last page, I want to know what happens to Kato and the rest of the beta team, I hope there's a spinoff in the horizon.

    *I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*"You wallow in self-pity when you could be taking your life back!"This turned out to be the biggest disappointment of my 2017, I'm honestly heartbroken. I love the first two books, but Heart on fire was so boring and cheesy and I'm crying again because I deserved an amazing finale why did you do this to me Amanda THE PLOT: The banter, the Beta team and Griffin's amazing family wer...

    My morning starts off with a HUGE ASS FANGIRL RANT about Heart of Fire by Amanda Bouchet because I finished the book yesterday and omg.. ooooooomygod - guess my bookbuddies in the whats app group are 'wide awake' now, if they weren't already, since they received like 50-100 messages from me bwhahaha..I'm still, emotionally speaking, so RAW at the moment.

    4.5 Awesome stars!I've always been fascinated with Mythology. I love to read about Gods and Goddesses.  Hence, the reason why I practically inhaled this series when it first came out.  This series has all the ingredients you need for one AMAZING adventure.   We have different creatures...Cerberus, The Hydra, and others.  We have magic, love, characters you can't help but root for.  And the GODS and GODDESSES. They were awesome! It is always...

    Soooo, the only good thing I can say is that Cat`s usual snark is back, and there were only two or three sex scenes - that`s a plus for those who didn`t like the sequel because there was too much sex and almost no banter between Cat and Griffin. But that`s all. I think this book was the worst in the trilogy.First of all, it`s unbelievably dragging. Every chapter could be shortened in half. And that’s because half of it was Cat`s whining or expl...
  • Ashley
    I'm heartbroken that I didn't love this more!There were three things that killed it for me:1) Cat is pregnant and keeps referring to her unborn child as Little Bean. This term just grated on me. She's always "checking on Little Bean" and people are asking her, "is Little Bean okay?" I got to the point where I was ready to throw something if I heard "Little Bean" one more time.2) Cat's insecurities drove me nuts. She keeps doubting her abilities a...
  • Marta Cox
    I've loved this series and I'm so pleased there's a happy resolution. Cat and Griffin are this awesome power couple driven to protect others and yet Cat has suffered so much. I loved knowing Griffin was always meant for Cat and yes those meddling Olympians actually featured quite heavily in this book. I know that Cat is the embodiment of hope for a new world but really I wanted a bit more action. What we get is Cat struggling to understand and co...

    "Catalia Fisa. You are surprisingly entertaining. One never knows if you'll live or die."Discovering the Kingmaker Chronicles was kinda like running into a unicorn. You're not expecting it, pretty sure it didn't exist, and it basically fulfills all your wishes in one go. It was a sexy fantasy story that takes place in a made-up world with our own Greek myths, infused with magic, a reluctant snarky heroine, and a total alpha hottie. With a band of...
  • Douglas Meeks
    Well I must be one of the few people in the world that did not think this was some great literacy achievement, coming in at 418 pages for a story that could have been told in 250 and probably better unless you are addicted to pages and pages and pages of self-introspection and did not succumb to terminal boredom.While the above may be a bit over the top it does represent where I spent a LOT of my time reading this book and was finally forced to s...
  • Erin Kelly
    I am a huge fan of fantasy and paranormal romance, but for some reason, I hadn’t gotten around to Amanda Bouchet’s amazing series until recently. The first two books sat on my kindle, mocking me with their gorgeous Gene Mollica covers for months. And then, I got the chance to read the final book in the series and decided to get to work on these books that I had heard so many good things about… I devoured the first book in a day and told eve...

    Heart on Fire concludes the Kingmaker Chronicles series by Amanda BouchetI was hooked on the Kingmaker Chronicles series from the moment I read the first page of A Promise of Fire and each additional book has been a delight. I’m sad to see it end and I’d love to see a spin-off, because their are so many wonderful characters that have potential to do their own stories. Heart on Fire starts right where Breath of Fire ends. So their is no time w...
