In a land where witches exist and dragons roam, on a night like no other the moon grows dark and the selection is made to once again save the lives of many. For one chance at freedom Camea must submit to the will of the Gods with hopes of escaping a life of servitude. Will her fearlessness and determination be enough are will she falter once she's put to the test?
Shona Husk writes with an intensity and passion that moved me to keep reading. At times I found that the story lingered in places and Camea and Matai were a bit hard to understand, but as I continued reading the story flowed effortlessly and you understand where the author is heading.
Camea is not not your typical islander girl. She has dreams of seeing the world far away from a life of drudgery: "she wanted more, she wanted the stars". She would gladly gamble her life at the hands of the God of fire. Camea's destiny is not what she would have chosen but she makes the most out of a bad opportunity. I applaud her for getting through her situation with a positive attitude. She has the drive that puts most people to shame; she's tenacious and has a stubbornness that serves her well for what she must endure. Love is not for her, it's only freedom she seeks. It was nice to see her put anothers desires above her own. From a girl to a woman, she matured before my eyes.
Matai is more than just a mere man. With eyes blazing like molten lava, the fire is the beacon to his soul. He moves with ease on the remnants of a cloud, traveling through the center of the earth that is his home. He's the savior of the chosen ones. In the blink of an eye he appears as the almighty, just a breath away lingering in the darkness of smoke, hesitant to make his presence known. As I got to know Matai I found that he had a quiet, sexy allure that held me captive. I was totally under his spell. This story is all about Camea and Matai and their goal for independence and their development from foe to friend. As I finished the last page of this book I found myself caring for Matai and Camea and their well-being. The ending pleased me very much.
If you're looking for a book to stir your imagination then sit down and stay a while for How to Breathe Fire will captivate the senses. Make a space on your shelf for this one.
