Romantic Wednesday The Fire Lord’s Lover Kathryne Kennedy
Elven Lords rule the Realms… is what it says on the back cover of this novel. I thought it said Eleven Lords, so I was expecting a different type of romance novel, but to my surprise it was actually pretty neat in an elven sort of way. Kathryne Kennedy creates a totally original, organic, captivating microcosm of insight into the heart in The Fire Lord’s Lover. Here is what to expect:
“Fighting for control of a kingdom that is split into seven domains, Elven warlords use their human slaves to breed an endless supply of soldiers for their armies. Dominic Raikes, the half-blood son of the Elven Lord himself is one such warrior. Betrothed to Lady Cassandra, who has been raised in a convent to keep her pure, he little suspects that she's been secretly trained as an assassin to murder his father and him. Dominic and Cassandra soon discover that each one is not what they seem, but the price of trust may be their very lives, and the destruction of the magical realm each is desperately trying to save.”
I am not too keen on the human slave’s part, but it is a necessary element to the novel to prove the points she wants to make. Affairs of the heart can happen to Elven warlords too, I love it. Being a newbie to this genre I am amazed at the originality and diversity of the plotlines of the different novels. Forgive me for stereotyping, but with the help from different friends on the many websites we are fortunate to be a part of, I have been steered towards some wonderful novels and characters.
Kathryne Kennedy totally won me over with her original plotline, rich characters, vibrant dialogue, action and suspense. Reality is quite a concept, but a novel of this caliber definitely softens and takes away the edges of the day as it whisked me away to a realm I had not ever imagined. She has a new fan in me, and I plan to check out her back catalogue of novels and of course anything she has new that comes out. Bring out more Elves, but be careful, these bad boys don’t bake cookies, cinnamon buns and biscuits like Ernie and another group of you know what.
