Ever since I read the description of this book I was really excited to start reading. Was I disappointed? Not really. Was I surprised? A little.

This book is fast-paced and never lacks action. It starts when Lanore, half demon and half fairie, runs from the police straight into a ceremonial murder. She isn't hurt, but now the murderer knows who she is and soon she begins to receive messages via dead bodies. Not fun for her. Now she's taken it upon herself to find the serial killer, along with the help of her ex-boyfriend were-cheetah, MeShack, and rebel leader Zulu.

Ms. Wright has created a fantastic world. It takes place in a slum habitat for supernaturals, placed in Miami and surrounded by a military base. Within the habitat, classes have formed. Pure bred supernaturals are the high society and mixed breeds, or mixies, are shunned as the scum of the supernatural world. There are fairies, were-animals, demons, and pretty much any other mythical creature you can think of. She does it in a very unique way...even though fairies and werewolves aren't exactly new, Ms. Wright makes them completely her own.

The thing that surprised me was the language and graphic sex. Now, I'm not very touchy about such things, and while I found it often unnecessary, it didn't offend me; but if you're someone who is bothered by foul language or graphic sex...you won't like this book, because it is everywhere.

The book did wrap up rather fast. Most of the book is spent hunting down this supernatural serial killer, and then at the end the final fight between Lanore and the killer only lasts a few pages.

Fire Baptized (Habitat)

Fire Baptized is a mystery, supernatural, and romance novel all mixed up into one deliciously decadent treat!

Fire Baptized follows Lanore a "Mixbreed" who lives in the habitat, which is a caged city where humans have exiled supernaturals. Lanore as a Mixbreed was born of two different supernatural species and they are further ostracized by the Supes (purebred supernaturals). Lanore witnesses a murder and suddenly is smack dead in the center of a supernatural serial killer sacrificing Supes to the Voudoun deities. Along for the ride are two men dueling for her affections.

Not just an empty calorie treat, Fire Baptized tackles racism/species-ism (?) in an engaging way & the storyline echoes the treatment of minorities in the not too distant past. I cannot wait to read the follow-up to Fire Baptized and follow the entire series. I was hooked from page 1!Fire Baptized Kenya Wright has given us a wonderful debut novel!

Right from the start, author Kenya Wright dives right into the action in Miami, but not the city we know, instead filled with vampires, trolls, shapeshifters and ungodly creatures. Mixbreeds are looked down upon. The action doesn't stop, and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat until the climatic ending. A very good read indeed.

Format: Paperback
You know the feeling when every single person you know loved a book, but you don't? And you wonder why people don't see it? That is how I feel about Fire Baptized.

Supernaturals are being forced to live in cages the size of small cities. Here they live in poverty and suppression. But things are even worse if you are a Mixbreed. They are second-class citizens, even in the Habitat. When she witnesses a gruesome murder on the way home, Lanore is determined to find the killer. But then he starts targeting people around her, and the killings get more personal.

The best way to describe Fire Baptized is an Anita Blake novel merged with a dystopian with social suppression themes. Think pre-orgy Anita Blake here. It's graphic urban-fantasy. There is a high level of gore and sex scenes that leave very little to imagination. I wouldn't recommend this for the sensitive reader. But for those of you who like it gritty - you might like this.

I admire the idea behind the story. It's different from what we're used to. There are Shifters, Vampires, Fairies, Pixies, Half-Demons and Witches; about every supernatural creature you can think of. They live in a caged city, cut off from the world. It's a highly original concept, and I just wish the execution was better.

The thing is, when you make this fantastic world with countless creatures that inhabit it and even make a whole religion for them, I want details. I want to know who built the cage. How does it look. What kinds of supernaturals are there, and what are their powers. When did supernaturals come out of the closet, so to speak? My main problem with Fire Baptized is that these details aren't there. There are pixies flying around, but I don't even know what they look like.

So, I received a free copy for review...

I really wanted to like this book. As a matter of fact, I believe it deserves a 2.5 rating versus just a 2 because it was a decent read.

I'm a fan of urban fantasy. The world Wright creates is intriguing, and I see the parallels to our history's past. The problem is that it's not enough. The book glosses over this world giving little hints and pieces. Supernaturals are branded and relegated to habitats, but why this was done isn't explained. Mixed breeds are hated but again, there's no explanation as to why. I'm guessing this will be explained in the next books, but it comes off as lazy story-telling.

The book seems more focused on the romance, and it's horrible. We're supposed to feel perplexed over who Lanore should choose. Hulking and beautiful MeShack, or hulking and beautiful Zulu. Their skin-color is the only characteristic that really tells them apart, but even that changes. These men are alpha males, misogynistic, brutish, and boring, but the heroine soaks it all up. I hated them, and I could not stand Lanore. One second she's all tough and determined, and the next she's unrealistically skittish and cowardly. It's lazy writing meant to please the romance freaks. Sorry, I just don't do poorly written romance.

Like I said, it's a nifty world. Some of the plot points were intriguing, but at less than 300 pages long, it's not that great.
