Book Review: Heart on Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #3) by Amanda Bouchet

Blurb (8)

The riveting conclusion to the Kingmaker Chronicles

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.

This was the conclusion to a great fantasy romance with Greek mythology influences.

Book 3 picks up right after Cat, Griffin and the Beta team win the Agon Games and they take over Tarva. They are almost at their goal of reuniting Thalyria and becoming the Alpha couple. All that is left is to defeat Fisa which means defeating Cat’s mother.

What really stands out in this book is the heroine Catalia. This is totally her show. She is definitely the the alpha female. The power she yields is like none ever seen. Now don’t get me wrong Griffin is an alpha in his own right but this book was all about Cat and he definitely took a back seat.

I loved all the action in this book. I definitely feel like I have closure as a lot of questions are answered. The one critique I have is that there was not much romance in this book. I would have wanted to feel more intimacy and more of a connection between Cat and Griffin. I don’t know, it just felt like I needed more. The story really focuses on Cat learning to use and understand her power to defeat her mother. So I felt like her relationship with Griffin was not really the focus which is fine I guess.

I LOVED the secondary characters in this book! I am so smitten with the Ipotane alpha, Lycheron. His strength and virility was so potent. Gah! Now he needs his own book! I also loved Bellanca, the ex-Tarvan princess. Talk about having some spunk.

If you are looking for a fantasy book with a strong heroine then you will love this book.
