Review - Shadow Fire By Kimber Leigh Wheaton

Shadow Fire By Kimber Leigh Wheaton
Published: February 24th 2014

Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.

Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever. 

Delistaire – a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power. 
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power of a Goddess. 

Shadow Fire - adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal 

As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows, their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power? 

I received this book directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Shadow fire is a magical, exiting read that had me turning the pages! With a good story line and interesting characters it was enough to have me hooked!

Ashlyn is chosen for an impossible mission, a mission that she is not likely to return from but she is determined to do her best and give her all to accomplish it. I enjoyed that Ashlyn is a strong character, she can fend for herself and she uses a bow and arrow…that's pretty cool! Very Katniss Everdeen!  I love a strong female character in a book, so I knew straight away I would like Ashlyn.  

Zane, a handsome mercenary who is to accompany Ashlyn on her mission and protect her was a great addition to the story. I love the chemistry between Zane and Ashlyn and you could definitely feel the spark between them. 

Shadow Fire is full of magic, romance and action, a thoroughly enjoyable Fantasy read that keeps you entertained throughout. I am looking forward to reading more from Kimber Leigh Wheaton is the future.

Rating: 4/5
