In Alaskan Fire, we are introduced to Blaze MacKenzie, a 6'4" beanpole with carrot-orange hair and a lifelong ambition to own a farm in the Alaskan Bush. When her parents are killed in a car accident, her unexpected inheritance finally allows her to pursue her dream. We follow her as she purchases The Sleeping Lady Lodge and heads to the Bush to try and make that dream a reality. What she finds there, in the person of her new handyman, Jack Thornton, is only the first surprise that awaits her and the reader. Intrigue, action, suspense, a magic feather, and an amazing personal discovery await Blaze in her new home in the Bush.
From the first page, the book grabs your attention, deluges you with images of the spectacular unspoiled wilderness of Alaska, and makes you feel the wonder of being on the edge of one of Earth's last frontiers. Once you manage to take a breath, the discovery of a world where magical creatures are real, and the wilderness is much more sinister and dangerous than you imagined, roots you to your chair in anticipation of the next twist and turn. However, this is not just a supernatural/paranormal fantasy book, it's also a romance. But not a tired, hackneyed, formulaic romance where the story only serves as a backdrop to the expected meaningful glances, steamy looks and perhaps a ripping bodice or rock-hard...abdomen, no, far from it. Instead, the element of romance woven through the book gives the adventure a sensual, edgy tension that doesn't disappoint in the end.Read more ›
Time passes in the first half without much at the beginnings of chapters to let the reader know that it is now two months later (or whatever). Author could stand to improve on her transitions.
But then, about halfway through, she has a personality transplant. All of a sudden, she is imaginative, and curious, and not afraid. No real reason, except that the novel would have gone nowhere with another 300 pages of self-centered fear and loathing. Some basis for her transformation would have been good.
On the positive side, there were very few errors of grammar, spelling, or sentence structure. What a pleasure for the reader (me), after slogging through so many Indie books written by English fail students.
The plot was engaging, though unevenly paced (the final event was a zoom-through of just a few pages).
The author has a real "ear" for dialog, and does a superb job of making one character's "voice" distinct from the others. That went a long way toward redeeming the novel from my initial impression.
All in all, average (3-star), with potential in the future for higher ratings. Author, in my opinion, needs to re-read, review, edit. Not everything that is produced by the keyboard needs to end up in the final version.
This book is a fantasy which has supernatural creatures such as fairies and werewolves hiding away from modern day society in the few remaining wilderness areas. Such as the Alaskan wilderness. That's where the story is set and, speaking as an Alaskan, I can assure you that if supernatural creatures existed that would be a fantastic place for them to hide out. The author clearly used her own experiences at a lodge in the wilderness to give the story a refreshing authenticity. (Last time I read a book that had events taking place in Alaska, the protagonists drove through Anchorage, making accurately described turns before watching an amazing display of the northern lights in midsummer... which is impossible.)
The story is well thought out, with hints at a great deal of planning and elaborate backstories for some supporting characters. Presumably these backstories will be explained in greater detail in the sequels. They aren't important in this book and don't get in the way of the main storyline, but are interesting enough to have made me want to read the next book.
Although the story is a good read and quite entertaining, there isn't much extra depth to it. The main character is big on heritage farming, free of genetic manipulation and seed patents, but not in a way that gives the book an activist bent. I must say I'm glad about that; it would have detracted from the story. As it is, the main character's passion for old-school farming works into the supernatural creatures theme quite nicely.Read more ›
