    One thought on “Soul of Fire”

    1. SOUL OF FIRE, Hoyt's second novel set in her alternate 'Magical British Empire' series, follows a minor character from Hoyt's first novel in the series, HEART OF LIGHT, Peter Farewell, British gentleman and were-dragon.After his promise to Nigil, the hero of HEART OF LIGHT, to return the second of two legendary magical jewels said to have been in Charlemagne's (yes, that Charlemagne) possession once upon a time, Peter sets off to British occupied India in pursuit of the jewel. He doesn't expect [...]

    2. In a colonial India full of weres, a dragon saves a girl falling off of a balcony. It turns out she is fleeing an undesirable marriage and is a bit headstrong. It turns out the dragon is, in fact, a were-dragon and that he is searching for the mysterious Soul of Fire ruby. Did I mention that they are both nubile beautiful young people and that he becomes naked every time he changes form? Oh yes it is a recipe for romance readers with not one, or even two, but three romance story lines, yes even [...]

    3. I loved this book as much as the first! Full of adventure, this takes one tackles insurrection and 'were' rebellion. I think this one was also interesting because out of its more romantic stories, its main story involved two very self depreciating individuals who find homes in eachother and one of the others is acceptance of ones societal differences. I appreciated the stretch from the common stereotypes although I wish they'd covered Williams story a bit more thoroughly or Lalitas (when she mak [...]

    4. This is the second book in a three part series known as the Magical British Empire. Soul of Fire was better than the first book although still lacking a steady rhythm. While showing more feeling than its predecessor, it still lacked emotions in which to keep the reader enthralled. It seems that the author does not like displays of emotions and her characters seem stiff because of it. Soul of Fire takes a little effort to read but due to overall plot it okay. Not recommended for readers who fall [...]

    5. I enjoyed this one more than the first book. The heroine was only occasionally a half wit and didn't throw herself at every guy in the book. The book did feel a little disjointed. The three sets of protagonists didn't come together in the end as well as the first book. And the various HEA's felt rushed and incomplete.

    6. This was a pretty good book but it could have been better. The pace of the book was odd. The beginning was drawn out but towards the end of the book, everything felt rushed. Overall, it was a good book but I'm not going to read the next book in the series.

    7. Big improvement over book one. I was looking forward to Peter's story and Sofie, while annoying at first, does improve over the course of the book. The two secondary romantic pairings did nothing for me though.

    8. 4 stars is a bit much but three is definitely not enough. Liked the book. Liked the fact that we are going on with another culture and another main character that was well established in book one. Did find it odd that the scene where the dragons fight was so abruptely terminated.

    9. It was good. I liked it. I probably won't re-read it, but if I needed something to read and it was at hand, I'd read it again. There was a nice touch of romance to it, but it didn't dominate the story. The characters were really likable.

    10. It has lots of potential but the author just messed up the story pace, stiff character development and dry humour.
