Book Blurb

Kian has crossed over from his world to ours to seek revenge. His plan is to kill the monster who murdered his uncle. The same monster who used magic to escape to our world and is hiding here and growing in strength. Regan Campbell is a hunter of Demons. The first son of a first son, he is the one who protects this world from the monsters that no one else knows are here.

When Kian reaches this world, he knows Regan is the perfect man to fight alongside him, but Regan trusts no one. It isn’t until they are facing death and a terrible evil that will be let loose, that Regan finally realises he can trust another...his fated partner, Kian.



Please note, this book was originally a short story written in 2010. This version is inspired by that short story and is a big re-write.

 

Book Review

This first story is a great start to the Fire Trilogy. It contains some interesting magical concepts focused around the mysterious magik of Fire, great characters in Kian and Regan, and an evil opposing force I don’t think I’ve seen the last of with the ending of this book. What more can you ask for in an adventure series? I also think this rewrite (based on the original short story published three years ago) is a wonderful improvement and now contains all the emotional and supernatural elements I am looking for in an “otherworldly fantasy”.   

Kian comes from a different realm, parallel to but different from our reality, and is here to hunt down an evil being that has killed his uncle in the cruelest possible way - by stealing his Fire. Fire is the sort of magik everyone has in Kian’s world, and comes in different colors. Sounds like a simple need for vengeance, right? Except there are certain rules when dealing with Fire, there is a prophesy about what will need to happen when Kian finds his mate, and Kian broke all kinds of rules to make it to our Earth. The result is an almost impossible task, and Kian is too determined to give up, and too nice to ruin Regan’s life. In other words, he is in deep trouble!

Regan is a tough guy who trusts no one. He hunts demons for a living, as his entire family has done for centuries. He works alone though, so when Kian explains what is needed to defy this mysterious guy he is looking for, Regan’s skepticism takes over. Regan is not only a commitment-phobe, he is also too much a realist to believe in all that nonsense about bonding and mates, so he is determined to get the job done, reluctantly working with Kian, only to run back to his old life right after. Except there is something about Kian that doesn’t sit right with Regan…

If you like stories with magik, mysterious enemies, and prophesies, if you want to find out about two men trying to remain independent despite one knowing better than to try and the other just being stubborn, and if you’re looking for a read that is as fantastical as it is hot and entertaining, then you will probably like this novella.
