In book two of the Kingmaker series, BREATH OF FIRE, Cat and Griffin have many challenges ahead including navigating their passionately intense yet still developing relationship. And now, Cat has a family she cares deeply about and wants to protect. She has been less than forthcoming with her personal history and as happens with secrets, “the truth will out.” Griffin is none too pleased when he discovers the cataclysmic secrets Cat has been keeping from him. Cat’s true identity as the Harbinger of the world puts her and all those she loves in danger as she and Griffin embrace and follow their destines for a united Thalyria. They undertake quite the epic journey beset by magical trials and feats of bravery as well as engaging in a heroic contest in a rival province that will test all of team Beta Sinta’s strength and bravery.

Cat’s heinous upbringing with an abominable mother, who is around causing major trouble, creates a big learning curve in her relationship with Griffin. His ability to love her despite all she has seen and done astounds Cat as she believed herself unworthy of the love now so deeply rooted in her soul. Their relationship gives this book tremendous heart that balances well with all of the fierce action of the story. They undertake, thanks in part to the whims and pleasure of the gods, breathtaking adventures and quests. The bond Cat and Griffin forge is strong and unbreakable; they work together as equals in their missions as Griffin tells her: “You are the shield and I am the sword. Together, we’ll forge a new world.” Even though Cat and Griffin go through some dark and difficult times, their conversations are imbued with fun and humor to lighten the load.

Breath of Fire is a perfect example of why I love Fantasy Romance.

As excited as I can be about a series, I'm always wary about a second book, specially one that follows a first that I couldn't love any more. With time and experience, you start trusting the authors and your nerves diminish. But Bouchet is a new author,A Promise of Fire was her debut, so I was worried... well, from now on, I will never doubt her again. To put it simply: I. ADORED. THE. BOOK. In fact, I'm still reeling from it, but I think once this post-amazing-book haze goes away, I will like it more than book one.

There were many things I loved, and in no particular order:

1. Bouchet didn't do the typical second book scheme of separating the main couple. Or of adding a third person to "spice things up". I cannot find the words to express how thankful I am for this. Instead, she focused on making this relationship, so new and still fragile, into one of pure steel. By the end of Breath of Fire, you cannot imagine anything petty separating Cat and Griffin. This, along with the superb writing, is one of the reasons she joins C.L. Wilson as my favorite Fantasy Romance authors.

2. The Heat Level! Book one was sweeter, more tame, which goes perfectly with that Cat, with that moment in their time, with the context of the book. THIS Cat, THIS Griffin, THIS moment required more desperation and hotter sexual levels. And she delivered.

“I will never leave you,” I vow, feeling the magic in my words bind me. “Only death can tear us apart, and even then, I will wait for you at the edges of the Underworld until you come to me again.”

3. The Deux Ex Machina device. I know some people dislike this and I generally do too, but... it's perfect for this trilogy.

This book was just as good as the first one, maybe even better but only because now you're emotionally invested in the story. The characters come alive, sometimes making you laugh and other times making you pull your hair out in frustration. Absolutely enjoyable. Absolutely entertaining... And absolutely frustrating that i have to wait a whole year for the next book to come out!!! If you haven't tried her books, you are definitely missing out.

I loved the first Kingmaker book. This one is horrible by comparison. I haven't even finished it yet because it is not holding my attention.

The book starts with a massive argument between Cat and Griffin where he completely destroys their bedroom, physically assaults her, says he can't take anymore and he walks away. That part was fine. My heart ached for Cat. When she moves back to the barracks to try and hold herself together, he thinks she has run away. Then he storms the room, says it was all a misunderstanding (basically thinks she's stupid for thinking otherwise), she buys it and they have makeup sex. What the heck?

The world-building and background building in this book is mind-numbing!

Plus Cat comes across as whiny and flippant. And she continues to hide key facts from Griffin and just blows it off as a minor fluke. Her POV as the narrator is annoying.

I will update this when and if I finish the book - right now, I just can't waste anymore time on it and will be moving on to another title.

This book is a thorough dissappointment.
