Fire by T.G. Ayer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank you to the author for providing me an EArc in exchange for an honest review.
Wow where do I begin, Ms. Ayer has done it again; her books just keep getting better and better.
I love the world building that the author does, and you can tell she really does her research when dealing with myths, legends and religions, she really knows her stuff.
The world and character building is just amazing, and makes me feel as tho I have been dragged into the world and never want to leave.
I loved the characters in this book, Tee really knows how to write a kick A** female lead. Maya is headstrong, knows her weaknesses, loves her friends and will do anything to protect them. She knows her limits, knows how to push herself and prove that she can become the hand of kali and reach her destiny.
I won’t tell anything about the story except to say that it was magical, wonderful and can’t wait for the next book.
Loved all the other characters, Nik he was an enigma to begin with and when you found out who he really was, understandably Maya was pissed at him but soon understood why he had done what he did. Really enjoyed the really slow build up to their romance, and I can see that going in a really good direction.
Maya’s parents tho I know why they lied to her for years, I felt they should have told her a long time ago to prepare her instead of leaving it till she was already in danger.
The bests friends Joss and Ria. Joss made a choice at the beginning that made things come to a head with Maya and when joss found out the truth she couldn’t stop apologising for making it happen, but she more than makes up for it in the story. Loved her as a character she really pulled thru.
Ria for me wasn’t strong, she bowed down too much too her father, but then I don’t know anything about Indian culture and how father’s even in the 21st century can still rule with an iron fist. Some things that happened to Ria did make me feel for her but in the end I felt like she let everyone walk all over her.
If you love a good paranormal book that is infused with culture and mythology then this book is definitely the one for you. If you have read anything by this author before and enjoyed it then this book is for you.
Can’t wait to read the next instalment,
