Koranen of Nightfall is the
seventh-born son and it is time for his involvement with the
Curse of Eight prophecy. His older brothers have each found
a woman and now, supposedly, it is his turn. More than over
his ability to turn anything he touches into flames, Koranen
also mourns the fact that he will more than likely never
find a mate. Who wants a man whose touch burns and
blisters? Not any of the women Koranen has previously come
into contact with, thatís for sure. His despondency comes
to an end however when Aquamancers arrive at his home.
Koranenís Destined Bride has got to be amongst the guests.
He just has to find her Ė and he does in the womanly form of
Danau, the highest ranked member of the Aquamancy Guild.
Her magic? Water. Donít hold your breath Ė things are
definitely about to get steamy!
Following Ms. Johnsonís Sons of Destiny
series, I was overjoyed to read Koranenís book. I found
myself upset at his curse, which is the flame, because I
didnít think he would ever be able to find the one woman
that could endure his fiery touch. But he did. Oh boy did he
ever! Danau has been turned off of love ever since a failed
relationship. Living only for her job and being made fun of
because of it, I loved how Koranen turned her world upside
down. More than once they made me laugh at the banter and
quick wit each portrayed while talking to each other.
The Flame was worth
waiting for. I have to caution new readers Ė not a bad
thing Ė but new readers will definitely have to read this
enigmatic and addicting series in order. I found myself
going back more than once to clarify details in previous
books. Fiery passions ignite the pages of The Flame
and I loved every single spark!
