Publisher's Summary

Mack might be, to all intents and purposes, a normal looking human, but she lives with a pack of shapeshifters in Cornwall in rural England after being dumped there by her mother when she was just a young child. She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won't allow the transformation to occur. With a terrible temper to match her fiery red hair, Mack is extraordinarily useful in a fight, and when her pack alpha is brutally and abruptly murdered, she swears vengeance. Unfortunately, his murder also draws in the Brethren - the leaders of the shapeshifter world - who will slaughter everyone in Mack's small rural pack if they discover her true identity. Unfortunately Corrigan, the green-eyed muscle-bound Lord Alpha of the Brethren, doesn't let much slip by him.

Finally a real heroine

If you could sum up Bloodfire in three words, what would they be?

It seems that half of the books I read with a female super power lead have them as either self abusive women, or caught in excessive bad boy mode. Mack is neither of these and refreshing, the other characters and story are also refreshing.

What other book might you compare Bloodfire to and why?

The Mercy Thompson series or Kitty Norville series are other great female lead series. While I generally loved those as well, this story had its own sense of flare and unexpected results and subtle sub stories.

Which character – as performed by Saskia Maarleveld – was your favorite?

The lead Mack, she was not weak, not into bad boys, she had great depth and convictions right along with her flaws. The internal struggles were great and not over powering the story and she resulted in a very believable character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, and then some.

Any additional comments?

So far I like the world she created for her story.

Much better than I was expecting

The book summary really didn't do this book justice. I found it an excellent read with a lot more complexity than I was expecting..

It follows the well-trodden path of a magical world separate to the "muggle" world with rules about not letting the non-magical people find out about the reality of magic. However it establishes a good universe through which the story unwinds. The characters are all rich and have a depth to them, and the author doesn't separate them into distinct good/bad groups.

After reading this book I immediately downloaded the next in the series. I rarely do that.

To top it all off, the narrator is brilliant. Her performance significantly enhances the experience and adds an additional dimension to the main character.

She is so good that I would pay to hear her read a telephone directory.

Light sort of romanticy chiclit with fighting?

What made the experience of listening to Bloodfire the most enjoyable?

The narration was really good. The characters were fun, the action scenes were thought out.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bloodfire?

The bickering.

What about Saskia Maarleveld’s performance did you like?

Good all round.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Cornwall you never knew existed.

Any additional comments?

The heroine got a little bit whiny from time to time but it was nice to see her try her best and not need rescuing all the time like so many other heroines in this genre.
