Shadow Fire (Light Chronicles Book 1)

Shadow Fire (Light Chronicles Book 1)
by Kimer Leigh Wheaton
Publication date: February 24th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult

Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.

Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever.

Delistaire – a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power.
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power of a Goddess.

Shadow Fire – adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal

As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows, their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power?


My Thoughts: Ashlyn is dealt a bad hand when she is chosen by her town to complete the impossible mission of finding the stolen goddess statue, luckily she has Zane by her side to save her more than once. With an evil sorcerer on their toes throughout their journey they constantly have to overcome the obstacles placed in their way. What an amazing and unique story I cannot wait to see what is in store for Ashlyn in the next book!!

From the very first sentence, "every step I take is one step closer to death", the author grabs me! The introduction was beautifully written, with such crisp details. I absolutely love this book!! A fantasy with non stop action and an epic love that made my heart beat faster. Ashlyn is an amazing leading lady with spunk and a big heart. From the moment Zane is introduced it's hard not to fall for this hunky hero and the love that he continuously shows Ashlyn just warmed my heart! The writing was beautifully done on more than one occasion I had to stop and really let it soak in. Its hard not to love the characters as they are introduced throughout the story, each have such strong personalities in their own way.

Favorite Lines:

  • "My heart pounds in my chest, the erratic rhythm painful."
  • "A drop of sweat falls form my forehead mingling with the few teardrops leaking past my wavering control."
  • "My body feels like its on fire as tiny shivers of pleasure race up and down my extremities."
