Overview

Allegria appears to all to be nothing more than a simple priestess devoted to worship of the sun goddess. Hallow is a masterless apprentice. Deo was meant to save the world and bring the Fireborn and Starborn together peace.

But then invaders beseigned the land of the Starborn, breaking the prophecy. Now Allegria has fled the priesthood, and weilds the power of the sun. Hallow accepts the mantle of leadership he so long avoided. And Deo is tormented and tortured by the power of the invaders, using chaos itself to create an army that will drive the interlopers from the land, and bring about the peace of the Fourth Age.

The three unlikely heroes must learn to trust where there is suspicion, to believe where there is only doubt, and to fight when all hope is lost.

This book is bad. I really loved the Aisling Grey books, and liked the books about the other dragons in that universe. But the books I have read outside that world are lacking, this one the most. First, the writing is just not good. This doesn’t read like it was written by an author with over a decade of professional experience under their belt. It reads like a self-published professionally edited book. What I mean is the grammar is correct and there aren’t spelling errors, but the pacing and changing of narration constantly between first and third person was ridiculous. There are so many time jumps in this book it’s crazy. Growth and development of characters could’ve been explored, instead, we have just skipped ahead. Why? I can’t fathom since this is supposed to be YA. So why not let us see our leads grow up and learn magic. I think that skipping is what kept me feeling connected to the leads. Because truth be told I never really cared about what happened to anybody. Finally, the world building was awful. It was supposed to be a medieval type world, but there wasn’t enough description. It was too generic and not as clear as a place like Westeros or Middle Earth. Also, the cultural differences and roles weren’t properly explored. Why was a Preist becoming a warrior so crazy? There are plenty of fantasy stories with Warrior Priests. Aside from eye color and borders what made Deo’s parents so different? Basically, a lot of the book just didn’t make good sense. If it turned out some newbie ghostwriter is really responsible for this and MacAlister just let her name be on the cover for sales I wouldn’t be surprised.

Dnf 44% I really wanted to like this book, but after the prologue (in which I thought it was a good intro) I became lost and confused in this story. After a few chapters, I didnt know who was "talking" and it turns out theres 3 povs. I wished authors would note that during each pov change. And it turns out that Deo and Hollow are written in 3rd person and Allegria is in 1st person. I then wonder with the prologue would mention Deo being born, have him as 3rd person and Allegria is 1st. I just don't understand why authors do this. This is the second time in about 1 month I have read a book that changes between 3rd & 1st person, it doesn't translate across the page while reading. I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

After a slow start Fireborn takes off and keeps you riveted. This isn’t typical light hearted Katie MacAlister this is epic fantasy. This is trudging through the detritus of war. Dealing with the politics of prophecy and gods. It took me awhile to warm up to the characters but by the end I liked them and wanted to see them succeed. Great world building. Cliff hanger.

I would highly recommend this new seires by Katie MacAlister. This new world is full of well developed characters, tons of adventure, and a lot of laughs. I got so caught up in the story that I couldn't put it down!
