...tells a swashbuckling tale through Cat’s irreverent, diffident, yet still somehow buoyant first-person point of view; this is an exquisite high-fantasy romance with masterful worldbuilding based on Greek mythology. An exciting fantasy/romance debut: action-packed, emotionally charged, and skillfully plotted.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

"Fantasy romance at its finest!" -Darynda Jones, New York Times bestselling author of the Charley Davidson series

KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER...
BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT

Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods-and her homicidal mother-have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.

Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm-until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

More praise for A Promise of Fire:

Reviewed by Kaetrin on Aug 17 2016

I’m definitely in for the next installment in the series and I’m very curious as to what’s going to happen and just what is the mysterious prophecy which haunts Cat. At the same time, I felt satisfied enough with A Promise of Fire so I had no angst about finishing it.
