The take on vampires is different. They transform into "gross and swampy" fighting forms and are devilishly handsome when not. Darius is a powerful elder vampire whose pragmatic in a way. That way is I think your lovely and smell good so let me within you while I take your blood and we both experience pleasure. Reagan refreshingly is laughing, tempted, and shooting him in the leg all at the same time in response.
Then there are the mages whom are the magically inclined humans who have been trained and the witch's who are also magically inclined but not trained. Reagan is and isn't one all at the same. Mages can be good or bad but since their the antagonists of the story let's assume their bad.
Her two side kick are a weird but fun duel mages that are married. They combine their skills and magic in making weapons and spells to help Reagan and to get to come along for the ride. They also help her with learning her magic and her eyebrows.
But, there are some big differences. Born in Fire is not well-written, the main character uses the same angry tone of voice for EVERY single conversation she has - no nuance, no differences for different people. In fact, you don't actually care what happens to her, or to anyone else in the book. It's not two-dimensional, it's actually one-dimensional. The only character who is remotely interesting is the vampire, and he tries to remain remote.
I was so shocked at how bad it was, and how good the reviews were, that I tried the second book to see if she got better. Well, it was about 5% better, but that still leaves it pretty bad. I did not read the third and would like to scour it off my Kindle. The only bright spot is that at least it was a cheap book, but I really regret the wasted time.
Looking for strong female characters, interesting magic and a complex storyline? Try S. A. Chakraborty's new book "City of Brass". Wow! that's a book to read!
