Novella Review: Hearts of Fire by Kira Brady

Hearts of Fire by Kira Brady

Publisher: Zebra Books

Available in ebook only.

With a low page count, Kira Brady crams action and romance into every word.  I adore the fast pace and while the romance struck quickly, so did the disgust in the townsfolk of Alice and Brand’s coupling.  Just as soon as the two spend a moment together, they are thrusted into opposite sides of an ancient war between Shifters and Dragons.

I liked Brand more than Alice, as we learn he has a troubled history, while her background is limited to being the daughter of the town’s leader.  Norgard was the only minor character that stood out for me.  He began the book with a BANG, literally.  I’m hoping that he makes a future appearance in the soon to be released novel.

The only part I hated about this novella was the length.  I read it in one sitting.  When I finished, I hoped for another hundred pages to read and find out what happened next, but I guess I’ll have to wait until the novel’s release in August.

In the prequel to a stunning new paranormal series, one woman’s desire for a forbidden man will spark a centuries-long supernatural conflict—and a love nothing can destroy.

She’s the heiress to Seattle’s most powerful shifter clan. Her destiny is as controlled and certain as moonrise. However, from the moment Alice Corbette encounters the man known as Brand, she will defy all constraint and break every rule to make this dragon-shifter hers. Brand is determined to repay the clan leader he owes his life to. But one taste of Alice’s exquisite spirit will make him question his loyalty—and plunge them both into the middle of a ruthless power play. Their only chance at freedom is a gamble that could risk the future of humans and shifters alike…

Grade: A-

This novella appeals to fans of shifter and paranormal romance novels.

Release today June 26th, 2012 as an ebook for $.99.  If you’re interest in this book, you can purchase it at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  More reviews are available from Goodreads.
