Firebird

by Alice La Roux

If you are looking for a story to have you sitting on the edge of your seat, then you need look no further but this was nothing short of captivating.

From the very beginning it was clear that the author was going to leave no stone unturned in her pursuit of excellence and believe me this is most definitely excellent! It took a little while for me to find my stride, to fall in with the follow of the narrative and the pace that the characters brought to the page but once I was up to speed the only difficulty I had was finding a time where I could put it down, the story was so fluid that just picking up on when might be an opportune time to take a breather was far from easy.

Packed with drama the King family will own your soul by the time you are half way through, Seraphina was fabulous, I liked that she was not just strong but was as fiercely protective of those she cared about as her father was of her. He had spent years sequestering her away from the world in his attempt to protect her, only for her to ultimately take her own future into her own hands and overrule him. She is a proud woman with and inner strength that was her driving force, she loved her father without question, so when she uncovers the truth, that everything that her father holds dear is under attack by the group known as Firebird, she is willing to stop at nothing to uncover why and to make it right…the question was…could she?

Well, I would say she was capable of anything she set her mind too but things don’t always take the simplest of routes and with Seraphina, her path wasn’t just littered with pitfalls and danger, nope it also presented her with the biggest hurdle of all…Flynn Nightingale.

Flynn was everything that Seraphina doesn’t know how to deal with, they have the capacity to either make or break each other, the question was which would it be?

I loved that Flynn was honourable, he was determined to do the right thing but it seemed every way he turned there were walls in place to stop him from achieving his goals’. I mean he just wanted to save his city!

Between the two of them they had battles that could have quite easily have seen them on opposing sides but as much as Flynn was a sweet guy, that didn’t mean he was ready to be a push over and Seraphina wasn’t ready to back down either, so they had to find a happy medium that would give them both what they needed to protect themselves, and everything they both held dear.

A fabulous story that will have you rooting for the good guys from the side-lines, with some superb characterisation and principle characters that were easy to love, this was a story that didn’t juts show the good and the bad, nope it dissected it all and gave you the opportunity to watch as the author and characters pieced it all back together…and with an ending that was beautifully appropriate.

I could go on but I think you have probably had enough by now, this is worth many more than 5 stars, it was awesome.
