It is Kaye Brand’s power to wield. But outcast from her kind, she’s been selling herself to the highest bidder—money for her survival in exchange for a magic glimpse into the flames of the future.
One of the angelic Order, Jack Bastian has no use for a female like Kaye, as provocative and unexpected as her blazing beauty. Yet he has no choice but to hire her to uncover the secrets of his sworn enemy and her former fiancé, Ferrol Grey.
War is inevitable between the defenders of the Order and the mage Houses who threaten to engulf the world in Shadow. For Jack, mage-born Kaye is off limits, no matter how hot the impossible attraction between them. But in the coming darkness, beset by danger and desire, everything is about to change.
I am so on the fence about this book. I liked the story. I like the hero Jack. I kinda liked the heroine, Kaye. But I am really torn about the events that happened in this book. While Fire Kissed can easily stand as a read alone book and is the beginning of a new series. I would suggest reading the other Shadow books in this series first so you have a better understanding of the Shadow world.
That being said Kaye, my dear, dear Kaye. Oh I want to hate you so badly. In order to get what she wants Kaye puts herself into a situation that no one should ever have to be in. I understand why she did it, but I don’t like it. I think that Jack forgives her way to easy. What did she do? Well you will just have to read the book for yourself.
If you are a fan of Erin’s Shadow series Fire Kissed book one in the Shadow Kissed series will take you on an emotional journey of love, loss, betrayal and revenge. I look forward to the next installment in the Shadow Kissed series.
