'I could not put this book down. The pacing was perfect and kept me engaged from beginning to end.' 'I think anyone looking for a fantasy story with a character driven plot and strong female lead character will love this story.' - - J R Boles, author of Bringer of Light
'If you enjoy high fantasy in a unique setting with cool magic and well-conceived, multi-dimensional characters, with high personal stakes and a well-done romance, I highly recommend The Fire Mages.' - - Kyra Halland, author of the Daughter of the Wildings series.
'I enjoyed this one a lot. Although the pacing is slow in parts, there's plenty going on, from Kyra's initial steps into scholarship, through her introduction to courtly intrigue, to her gradual and growing understanding of the nature of love and friendship and family. And there are enough twists and turns to keep things interesting along the way.' - - Rachel Cotterill, Strange Charm.'I loved Kyra's world. It was full of women being real people, not just serving wenches and prostitutes. There were female stablehands, translators, wagoners, inn managers and guards--just about any job you could imagine had women working alongside the men.' - - Marina Finlayson, author of Twiceborn.
'Interesting mythology.' 'I can't wait to read other works by this author. I highly recommend this book for any fantasy lover.' - - Mindy Wall of Books, Books and More Books blog
"The plot is masterfully crafted, unpredictable but with clear cause and effect to be seen in hindsight. It is full of action, drama and intrigue, well-balanced such that there is never too much of one mood or approach before advances in the plot move things onwards." - Alice Lieper, Ally's Desk blog
"This book's protagonist Drina, is one of the more identifiable protagonists I've had the pleasure to meet in a book, trying to juggle the impossible demands of her position in court, and the basic raw emotions she has for the man she loves, and for her mother." - Michael Omer, author of Sleepless
"Succinctly and beautifully written, the reader is totally immersed into thecharacters, their lives and their challenges. Each chapter brings moreto light, and there are never dull portions that you have to slogthrough to get to the next good part.
Links to people and placesfrom earlier books in the Brightmoon Annals are lovely to come acrossfor fans of the series. This enables a deeper reader experience as youanticipate outcomes based upon what you have discovered in previousstories.
This book, and all the Brightmoon Annals series deliverwhat I want most from fantasy novels; authentic characters, a believable world/society, gripping stories and the scope for more to come."- ZDeeps on Amazon
