Overview


Protecting humans is the Bringers’ duty. Sending demons to the Shadow World is their pleasure. In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only homeshe’s known, she stumbles headlong into the clutches of Icarus, a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating. When Rhys realizes the woman he’s rescued from the Bane Demon is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death. As the Demon King’s desire for ultimate power escalates, fathers are slated against sons, and foes are made allies. The Bane threat upon them, Rhys and Ravyn must quest to unite the last of the Bringers—and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.

    This was my first Boone Brux novel, and I was very happy with the outcome! It was a refresing story that I absolutely enjoyed!

    Boone built an exciting world, filled with both Bane and Bringer, with such emotion that I felt that I was fighting right along with Rayvn and Rhys. The budding romance that turned into raging love was a journey full of twists and turns, and always kept me on my toes. I was not bored at all with any part..it was also filled with rich humor (often provided by the superly hot Luc)...I read it in one sitting.

    I can't wait to read the next installment of the Bringer and Bane, which I hope will be about Luc and Jade....(keeping my finger crossed!

    I have never heard of Boone Brux before and thought I would give this book a try. I loved it the characters and storyline are something that has never been done before and it captures you in the world of the Bringers. Leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat wanting more. Can't wait for the 2nd book in this series. :)

    Definitely a MUST Read...

    Was looking for something to read while waiting for some of my favorite authors to come with new offerings when I stumbled on this book. It was pretty good, I do wish that all of my questions were answered, hence the four star rating, but I'm looking forward to the next book in the series...ENJOY!

    More than I hoped for!

    Honestly I purchased this book out of curiosity because I am a friend of the author, but boy was I pleasantly thrilled! I love this genre for the way it pulls me out of reality, and Boone was no exception with this book. The action scenes made me forget all about what was going on outside of the pages (not to mention the romance) and in between there was enough story and mystery to keep me flipping and wondering what else is in store for the characters. Can't wait for book 2!

    Paranormal Romance with Depth!

    I'm a fan of Entangled Publishing (their covers always pull me in!) and I'm so happy 'Shield of Fire' caught my attention. How could it not with that cover! Ravyan was everything I'd want from a strong female character. She's not only adventurous, she also has depth (something that can sometimes be lacking from this genre. The author did an excellent job of balancing her religious background with her spunky spirit. I totally believed in the romance between Ravyan and Ryse, and I found myself ignoring the housework to find out how the story turned out. It surprised me in the end with a couple of twists. I'll definitely be looking for the next book in the series!

    Rhys and Raven, Complex as can Be




    This is my first Boone Brux book. I can honestly say it won't be my last. I've caught the bug. 




    I love well written books. Tomes where I can see the action taking place in my mind's eye. This book was filled with intricate scenes that opened the mythical world to the reader. The characters grew and developed right before your eyes, taking you with them on their journey to defeat the evil Bane.




    I loved how Rhys and Raven found each other, the twists and turns of their relationship and learning about the power of love. Oh now Rhys could make me want to bench slap some of his notions, but hey, he's 300+ years old. He just doesn't know any better. I'm sure Raven is going to change a lot of his antiquated attitudes.




    I love that there are so many more stories possible with this series, very open ended. There are other characters to explore. There's that pesky Icarus to deal with. Boone Brux has left the door open for many more stories to come. 




    I've already bought the next in the series! I can't wait to get into it!

    At first I had a little trouble getting into the story. I don't

    At first I had a little trouble getting into the story. I don't know why as it was well written, but I'm glad I stayed with it because it got really good. This story has everything from demons, to sirens, to magic, to castles, to warriors astride horses. I like how even though it never comes out and says it, the events in the book could be happening during medieval times on Earth or a fictional place like Middle Earth. It also avoids the trap of using cheesy made up names as I often see in books set in a medieval-like setting. The setting is not important, but the overall story is.

    It was also enjoyable to read about a strong female character who wasn't making stupid choices for the sake of the story. I felt more like Ravyn was driving the story and not the story driving her. I'm so tired of authors writing their characters into making blatantly stupid decisions to make things happen in the plot. Luckily, Boone did not stoop to this easy out.

    All of the characters were well developed and likable, even Icarus who is a demon. The author created a story that has depth and foreshadowing of things to come in subsequent books. I can't wait as I want to know more about Luc, Icarus, Siban, and some of the Council members. I have the second book in this series and can't wait to start it.

    This was my first official book by this author and I don¿t know

    This was my first official book by this author and I don’t know why I haven’t read any of her books until now. I connected with the characters and her storyline captured my attention from the beginning. Twists and turns at the right places kept me on my toes. I look forward to the next installment of this series which I will be buying shortly. I recommend this book to anyone who loves strong characters with romance thrown I the mix.

    Shield of Fire

    To hot for words...

    Shield of Fire is the reason, I think we need a writer of the month club. We buy the sell sky rocket, because this is a best seller.

    From page one to the end the action was nonstop.
    I fell in love with Rhys and Ravyn from the word stop.

    Ms Boone has made my top 10 authors of all time list with this book.

    Now this was a pretty awesome read and a lovely introduction int

    Now this was a pretty awesome read and a lovely introduction into a new world that's just a little different from any I've ever read. Brux has a fabulous voice that pulled me in completely and had me so engaged in the story. Had me loving the characters and doing some full on pouting when real life got in the way of my reading and I had to put down my Nook for even a second. And oh baby she's got some yummeh covers on this series!


    It did take me a little while to figure out what the characters actually...were. I knew they were touched with a bit of the paranormal and were "Bringers" but what that was? Not a clue. The basic gist is that Bringers are somewhat immortal Warriors that are here to battle the Demon Bane who attack humans. There's a magical element to them with them each having a supernatural twist of being a protector, being gifted with insight or healing. There's even a shifter element involved which I loved.

    Rhys and Ravyn were fantastic leads and the support cast was amazing. Which is something I really appreciate in a story. I love that added oompf that they bring into the picture. What was so great about them all was not necessarily them (though they were all really entertaining and well written characters) but the way they way they interacted. They have such a great sarcastic/teasing/loving back and forth thing going on where you can really tell they all love each other. They're not one bit shy about giving each other hell and it's fantastic. I snorted with laughter more than once and couldn't help but smile over them all.

    There wasn't much in the steamy department with this story outside of one big scene but damn it was a good scene and the chemistry and tension between Rhys and Ravyn was nice the rest of the time. Rhys is sexy and strong and just one of those drool worthy heroes. And Ravyn, even though an extremely sheltered and innocent heroine wasn't so in an annoying way. Know what I mean? It was really wonderful watching her grow and explore her new found freedom (she'd been basically a prisoner at a convent her entire life). I loved her reactions to things like seeing the ocean for the first time. It was just sweet and endearing and one of those things that could tear you up a little.


     If you love rich and textured world building and stepping into a new world full of action, danger, humor and of course romance it's a great one to try out. I cannot freaking wait to read Luc's story. Omg he is delicious! Like your favorite chocolate treat that makes you deliriously happy even if you know it's not the best thing for you. Brux won me over with this one and I'm very much looking forward to reading a lot more from her in the future.

    Ravyn not sure of who or what she truly is but knowing she is


    Ravyn not sure of who or what she truly is but knowing she is different is about to have everything she thought she knew changed forever.

    Rhys is a Bringer a warrior sworn to protect humans from the Demon Bane.
    When Rhys save Ravyn from the Bane he knows she is not quite human but will he realise who she is and why the Bane wants her so desperately before it is too late.

    Shield of Fire is the first book in the Bringer and the Bane series by Boone Brux and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This book has a very refreshing approach and will keep you engrossed from the first to the last page.

    I look forward to reading many more books by Boone Brux as I truly believe she will be an author to watch.
