About the Author

KIRA BRADY writes apocalyptic paranormal romances set in a grisly modern-day Seattle. A native Seattleite, she spent her childhood hiking the rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest and drying out by the fire with a good book and a mug of something hot. She graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania, where she met her real-life Prince Charming and promptly dragged him back to sunless Seattle. She fell in love with historic haunted cities in graduate school. Now she writes about the twisted cities of her imagination, where wraiths and shape-shifters stalk the night and love redeems even the darkest heart. When not writing, she can be found drinking inordinately large mugs of Assam tea, knitting wool socks, and raising a wee heroine-in-training.

Hearts of Fire is Kara Brady's beautifully written prequel that introduces readers to Brady's new Deadglass series, a supernatural world of shape-shifter. Hearts of Fire gives the history of how this war of hate all begun between the Kivati and Drekar race in Settle in the year 1889. Also, how the forbidden love of a Kivati woman for a Drekar man fuels the fire of hate even further between the two supernatural races. And this war is still waging between the Kivati and Drekar in present day Settle in Brady's first novel Hearts of Darkness.

Alice is the eighteen year old daughter of the Kivati leader, Halian Corbette. Alice's father has moved the Kivati family to this new frontier of Settle to develop this land while the iron's hot. But there's someone else who wants the opportunities that Settle has to offer, Norgard the Drekar Regent. The Drekar's are the Kivati immortal enemy, and when Emory (Alice's brother) discovers that their greatest enemy is in Settle and that Alice has fallen in love with one, he swears he will kill every last one of them.

Alice has met her destiny in the dark, dangerous, and gorgeous Brand, and she's not shy about making her claims of Brand to her family. But how cruel can destiny be when the man she loves is her immortal enemy? Alice feels like it's time for peace between the Kivati and the Drekar's. She also believes that Brand and her love will be strong enough to bring this peace, but she never realizes how strong her brother's hate is for the Drekar race. Alice will have to choose between the man she loves and the brother she's loved all her life.

Hearts of Fire is an immortal, racial war of hate between the supernatural Kivati and Drekar's with a beautiful, forbidden romance. I recommend Hearts of Fire as a captivating beginning to a steamy new paranormal series.

Hearts of Fire
Reviewed by Angela & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

This is my first read of Kira Brady's work and I have to say that she has captured my interest in this world of Dragons and other Shifters.

Set in the late 1800s in Seattle, a world of Shifters/Other beings living among humans but not necessarily in peace. A Bomb waiting to explode, the tension between the Drekar Dragons and Kivati (other) Shifters has worsen.

Brand Haldor, a Drekar dragon has recently migrated from Scandinavia hoping for a new beginning and has found it with Kivati shifter, Alice Corbette. Unfortunately, this Romeo and Juliet story will have hell before getting their HEA and not without a tragic after math. Due to the forbidden love, the duel between the Drekar and Kivati had exploded to an even worse predicament then before. It's definitely a big set up for the upcoming novel Hearts of Darkness and it is actually well explained at the end of the book.

The world building was heavy with information (in my opinion), but I'm pretty sure that it is all pertinent to the next book. The character build up was okay but it really is hard to get a good grasp of it being that it is a novella. And unfortunately, same goes for the romance. It was certainly too fast for my liking. I understood the instant attraction, however I felt like romance was not believable.

On the plus side, Ms. Brady's story is very promising. It has qualities I'd look for in a book. Alpha males, worthy H/h, a complex history and/or a good story line and with a regular length book, I'm expecting an epic romance.

I am eager to delve in to the next book and see what Ms. Brady has in store for us.

I had the pleasure of reading Hearts of Darkness as an ARC from the publisher a month before Hearts of Fire was available for sale. I can honestly say that Hearts of Darkness is a fine place to start with this series. Looking back now I wish I had read this prequel first though.

Readers are introduced to a Seattle in the year 1889. The Kavati (animal shifters) are still living a peaceful existence among the humans. Seattle is growing rapidly with industry and new comers who are seeking a claim on the western frontier. The newest people to move into Seattle are the Drekar (dragon shifters.)

Brand is among the dragon shifters. He has came to Seattle to pay out a favor/debt owed to the Drekar Regent. His only wants are for peace, stability and a woman who he can be who and what is truly is with.

Alice is the daughter of the Kavati Raven Lord. She also finds that she is attracted to Brand. She knows that he is not merely human. She also knows that they are destined to be together. The party her father is hosting to welcome the new residents if the perfect place to finally get closer to the object of her affections.

Hearts of Fire is a novella. Alive and Brands relationship has many of the rushed characteristics that one finds with many novellas. I still enjoyed reading them, especially Brand. He was desperately wanting a new life in Seattle. He is also desperately wanting to find peace between the Kavati and the Drekar.

Having already read Heats of Darkness I now have a better understanding of where some of the bitterness of Emory Corbette came from. I also now have a better understanding about the long term war that has been going on between the Kavati and the Drekar.
