Fireborn by Aisling Fowler #UltimateBlogTour #TheWriteReads

I am delighted to be a part of day 2 on the Ultimate Blog tour for Fireborn by Aisling Fowler! Thank you to The Write Reads for letting me be a part of the Blog Tour and to Harper Collins for the proof copy.

This is a book that I knew I was going to love before I had even turned to the first page. The stunning cover with the exquisite illustrations and embossed lettering, and the blurb that draws you in but yet doesn’t give too much away, meant that Fireborn already screamed ‘I am epic and magical and you will love me!’.

Set in the fantasy world of Ember, Fireborn follows the tale of Twelve who has given up her identity and life to become a part of the hunter’s lodge, a group who train to hunt the monsters that roam this magical world. She is a complex character and we soon discover that Twelve’s deep and dark motivations are rooted in her desire to seek revenge on those who took her family.

However, when the lodge is attacked everything changes and Twelve is catapulted into a journey where the future of her world is at stake.

One of the things I loved so much about this book were the characters. Identified by a number, they are written with depth, warmth and empathy. The relationship between Twelve and Five (enemies at the outset) as they begin to understand each other is beautiful to watch. Likewise, it was fascinating to watch Six and Seven as their characters developed as the story went on. I was left wanting to know more about the smaller characters and the ones on the side of evil as they were that perfectly written.

The world of Ember that Aisling Fowler has created is a perfect land of fantasy, a world that is so vivid and full of life that it is easy to get lost there. The writing is so perfectly pitched that I never wanted to put this book down and I was always eager to know what was going to happen next. I was there with those characters in this magical world at every step of the way.

This is a story that will appeal to fans of big, other world fantasies, both young and old. It is an absolute unputdownable delight.

Fireborn is an absolutely epic tale that felt like only the start of the adventure. I, for one, can’t wait to see what happens next.
