Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

"Cat" Catalia Fisa has been running from her destiny since she could crawl. But now, her newfound loved ones are caught between the shadow of Cat's tortured past and the threat of her world-shattering future. So what's a girl to do when she knows it's her fate to be the harbinger of doom? Everything in her power.

Griffin knows Cat is destined to change the world-for the better. As the realms are descending into all-out war, Cat and Griffin must embrace their fate together. Gods willing, they will emerge side-by-side in the heart of their future kingdom...or not at all.



This powerful sequel in the Kingmaker Chronicles was a gem of its own! Cat, Griffin and their companions must travel to cold plains, seek mythical creatures of the Greek legends, as also envade their enemies.

I loved their banter, the steamy scenes and the character grownth, especially Cat. In the first book she is a woman who tries to escape her problems not matter the cost, but now she fights for everything and everyone with all she has to give.

Even her life.

The Ipotane were a nice touch. Though I'm more fond of Centaurs, I understand that Amanda Bouchet wanted to introduce to her readers even more unknown creatures of the Greek mythology. I'm still hoping to see a Pegasus in the next book!

If a NA filled with magic and mythology along with quite the steamy scenes is your best choice then I truly recommend this book!

About the author:

Amanda Bouchet grew up in New England where she spent much of her time tromping around in the woods and making up grand adventures in her head. It was inevitable that one day she would start writing them down. Drawing on her Greek heritage for the setting and on her love of all things daring and romantic for the rest, her debut trilogy, The Kingmaker Chronicles, took form. She writes what she loves to read: epic exploits, steamy romance, and characters that make you laugh and cry.

A French master’s graduate and former English teacher, Amanda lives in Paris, France. She met her husband while studying abroad, and the family now includes two bilingual children who will soon be correcting her French.
