I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook for voluntary review consideration.

This is another very enjoyable installment in the Kingmaker Chronicles series!

I absolutely loved A Promise of Fire, and I couldn’t wait to jump back into Bouchet’s fantasy world. She kind of threw me for a loop, because the beginning wasn’t at all what I was expecting! Things were good between Griffin and Cat when the last book left off, but things are rocky at the start with this one! Griffin gives Cat an ultimatum: He wants all of her (including her secrets) or nothing. Then he wrecks their room, including their bed, and storms out. Not to worry, though. They reunite and make up, but Bouchet sure shook things up for me! After that, the drama slowed down. There is a lot of talk and planning relating to the upcoming Agon Games, which takes place every four years. It’s turned into a vicious battle between the tribes, and Griffin and Cat want to compete but show mercy and not fight to the death. With their plan to win the Agon Games, they will be able to enter Castle Tarva without force and take over the Tarvan Royals. For a bit there, I was a little worried that there was too much talk and not enough action! My fears were soon put to rest, and Bouchet’s action that had me so enthralled in A Promise of Fire soon had me under her spell again.

Despite their turbulent start, Cat's and Griffin’s relationship really evolved in this one. Cat’s love for Griffin does make her more vulnerable, and that shows. Don’t get me wrong, she’s still tough and I do like seeing this softer side of her. I love how much Griffin’s family has embraced Cat, and I’m still waiting on pins and needles to find out if Flynn and Jocasta will ever get together! It was nice seeing Cat’s circus family and Griffin’s family join forces in the Agon Games and afterwards.

I am eagerly awaiting the final book in the trilogy, Heart on Fire, which is expected to be released in January 2018.

I also need to say that the artwork for the covers is just stunning! Both of them are gorgeous, and I love how Cat is depicted as the kick-ass warrior that she is. I would buy the books on the basis of the covers alone! 

I can’t imagine anyone other than Mia Barron narrating this series! She does what a good narrator should, which is to bring a book to the next level. I highly recommend listening to this series, because Barron really does the story and characters justice! Here's a sample of the narration:

4 stars!! I really enjoyed it, and you should put it in your TBR list if you enjoy fantasy romance! Thanks again to Recorded Books for the opportunity to review this audiobook!
