The first thing is this cover is amazing.

Now for the book. The characters and world building are fantastic. I was instantly drawn into the story. While I disliked the main character at the beginning she grew on me as she began to grow herself. That was one of the best parts it wasn't the typical you automatically fall in love with the main character type of book. It's a journey that is worth taking.

Not a book to pass up for only $.99 you can't beat it.

This book was a no brainer for me. I loved the cover and admit I selected this book because of the cover/title and because it's about elementals. I picked up last night after work to help me unwind, but ended up staying awake to read the whole thing (It's a short story, though, so was easy to read in one sitting) But I feel like it's really worth noting that I normally DON'T read short stories. They don't usually satisfy me. They either feel rushed or pointless. I have to say I eat my hat on that opinion after reading this. Apparently short stories are worth reading IF done right, and Eckrich nailed it with GODDESS OF FIRE. Kenina and Neveresis stole my heart from early on, and the paranormal elements of the story kept me spinning through the pages, eager to know what happens next and yet anxious about finishing the book and having to leave the stellar story cast behind. Do not be fooled by this being a "short" story. It is indeed actually very "full". Full of passion and magic, full of plot and world building. I think what Eckrich here did was layer the elements of her story so densely that she ended up with a very rounded story despite the short length that leaves more stories feeling rushed. I wonder if anyone can ever really fully appreciate what goes into achieving something like that. Not a moment of this story is a wasted moment, and yet for not a second does it fall flat. The characters were well-rounded and imperfect and I related quite a bit to Kenina. She was strong yet vulnerable, and to be honest, I do get sick of the trite "tough girl" persona depicted in so many paranormal stories. It was nice to read about a character who was tough in her own way, without being a total bad ass with no emotion. Eckrich really needed it, and anyone who likes realistic characters in fantastical stories will gobble this up.

** Originally written for Book Bliss book blog. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased and honest review**

Review:5 stars

General: I absolutely have to start with the cover; it is beautiful and amazing and one of my favorites! It really set the bar high and then the back blurb continued to impress! The book didn’t disappoint either. From the beginning I was captivated wanting to know more about Kenina and Neveresis from their explosive beginning. The plot was fast paced and never felt rushed. I wished this short was a full novella! I can’t wait to see what the other gods and “elements” will bring to the series.

However while the plot was strong and the characters amazing the best part of this book were the descriptions themselves. The world was wonderfully set up and I could easily picture and place myself within it form the desert of Nevada to the fire and water powers that were often used between father and daughter. The descriptions also helped to amp up the tension and growing desire and relationship between Kenina and Neveresis.

Characters: Kenina- Kenina I honestly didn’t like for 95% of the book. She was wonderfully written but she annoyed the heck out of me. She was a petulant child for the most part – taking responsibility for nothing and throwing temper tantrums at pretty much everything it seemed. I enjoyed watching her mature through the story and grow up a little. It felt very realistic and well done.

Neveresis: Neveresis was an interesting male. When you first meet him he almost seems cocky and arrogant but as you read and realize that was due to Kenina’s perception of him he changes greatly. He was cocky but he was also mature, intelligent and protective. Plus his name is super cool.

What happens when the Ruler of the gods tells his daughter the Fire Goddess (Kennina) she must marry the god of water? She revolts and escapes to the earth with her servant.

I loved how the characters where developed and the scenes were well described. The obnoxiousness of the gods is perfect. That they think only of their needs is what I would expect.

Shannon does a great job writing about the maturing of Kenina into a caring being. Loved the twists and the fact that "Love at first sight" did not happen in this book. Great beginning, fast read!

Today, my Kindle was begging for me to read Goddess of Fire: Burn: An Elemental Short, and I can definitely say I wasn't disappointed. Ms. Eckrich has a way with prose that draws in the reader, leaving them wanting more up until the very end. Her characters are unique from Kenina, Neveresis, Sarah, and Jack (yum!). Each of them is uniquely flawed, and I loved how this story took a turn I wasn't expecting. What's that turn? You'll have to read the story to find out. I won't give away any details; the plot should be yours to devour. It has intrigue, heat, romance, intensity, and revenge. I can't wait to read the next in the series, and I have no doubts…it will be just as amazing as this story! Five burning stars!
