Gaians have stayed hidden from the eyes of humankind for centuries, but there is change in the air!
Sudden inheritance is thrust upon the young Gaian warrior, Luminor....
The sign has appeared, a deadly threat, spoken of in ancient prophecy.
This prophecy must be fulfilled. And Luminor is the one named for the task.
A raving lunatic turns up in the main square of Splendo, dying of burns in front of a large crowd.
Most say he is mad...but is he?
Victims continue to arrive from the north with crazy stories and the desperate human council calls for volunteers to deal with the problem.
Under Luminor's leadership, the secretive clan of Gaians risk everything by coming out of hiding to take up the quest in return for an alliance.
Not only the fulfillment of Gaian prophecy...it is also their only chance of survival.
Luminor alone possesses unique power which can assure victory.
With his small band of warriors, he embarks on a twisting, turning adventure, as he grapples with his destiny as Lord of Fire, falls deeply in love and overcomes betrayal, all testing his mystical talents to the limit.
Can he finally claim his soulmate and truly establish the Alliance?
' "Lord of Fire" by Susi Wright was so much fun to read, and Luminor and Fralii are surrounded by one of the most interesting and enjoyable ensemble of characters I have read in a while. From villain to love interest, friend to foe, no character is wholly good or bad, human or otherwise. The inventive storyline and the relationships with the characters with the elements of nature, the philosophy of survival, and the creative imagery Susi Wright creates here is phenomenal. Really enjoyed the whole mythology and backstory of the Gaians and was caught up in Lumi's quest throughout. A beautifully written and enjoyable read, and I look forward to more from Wright soon. Recommended for fans of fantasy/romance. '
'...an original, romantic and highly creative thrill ride that pulls you into the mystical world from the beginning and doesn't let up until the very last page. I was totally hooked from the opening prologue and found the writing to be engaging and kept me interested throughout. Ms. Wright's narrative style is so beautiful, almost lyrical and poetic at times. Paints the scenes perfectly with vivid energy, but not so much description or 'purple prose' so as to weigh down the pacing (as happens so often in fantasy! Ugh!) There is a lot of passion, and it's clear that the whole plot was well-thought out (had good focus, especially for being so complex). Fast paced, and I liked the hot chemistry with Luminor and Fralii, but also enjoyed (most of) the supporting cast as well. Definitely recommend for anyone who likes sci-fi/fantasy with lots of intelligent subplots, great mythos with the 'elements' and 'powers' (liked the Gaian philosophy) and fascinating characters. Looking forward to reading more about the Gaians and the Lord's reign! Recommend for ages 16 and up.(4-5stars)- Indie Book Reviews
