Publisher's Summary

From the Amazon best-selling author of Dark Diary and the Fluorescence series comes a mesmerizing standalone tale. Magic. Destiny. Friendship. Fates Aflame is a breathtaking journey through a vast new world in the tradition of epics like
"Sparks of golden light grew within my hands, fringed with vivid blue heat. Stems of fire manifested, licking at my fingertips, flickering and fighting to stay aglow amidst the pouring rain. Amber coils wove together, and from those struggling flames bloomed an effervescent rose. The petals unfurled and tumbled open gracefully, brought to life by pulsating swirls of orange and red.
In a society secretly fueled by unbridled magic, an ever-changing landscape of politics and formalities tugged the threads of my fate in all directions, shrouding the future in uncertainty.
My hands squeezed closed and the rose evaporated into smoke.
Earth has chosen me as its Guardian, and I have no choice but to assume the role. In the blink of an eye, a once carefree life faded from sight, like the blazing rose within my damp fingers."
Earth granted her the ability to conjure fire at will, but the birth of her powers awakens a curse and a perilous trial unfolds, putting the lives of those she loves in jeopardy. When extinct beasts brought forth by ancient magic threaten her life, she has no choice but to take a stand....
Fates Aflame is a standalone book, but you may continue the adventures in the upcoming book II.

Character driven fantasy, adventure w/ anime flair

Fates Aflame spent a lot of the early part of the book setting up the relationships between the characters and introducing you to this original sci-fi world. It was a little bit of a slow start, but well worth sticking with it. You get to know and understand the characters so you are really attached to them when the action starts. I have to say, I really enjoyed the flashback sequence, and it was especially good with the performance that the narrator brought to that scene.

Now to the really good stuff. This book has great fantasy action sequences that should appeal to fans of not only fantasy, but video games, and anime.

Not only are there classic mythological creatures, but plenty of new creatures that are well thought out and described in detail. The author has created a wonderful, original world. This book had it all; hidden lands, lost cities, elemental powers, magical swords, sci-fi weapons, and spacecraft. The action scenes were really well done, and brought to life with a great reading by the author. Overall, an enjoyable story, that was well written. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next one in the series.
