Bright Fire (Bright Fire Series Book 1) - M.J. Austin

Delfia Marie Stryker grew up thinking she was human, only to discover that she is the daughter of the gods Persephone and Hades. To make matters more intense she is named in a prophecy where she frees her mother and defeats her father.

 

Bright Fire is an exceptional novel. It is a very clever tale that kept me thoroughly engaged.

 

I enjoyed Dell’s character. She discovers a lot about herself in a short amount of time and shows a lot of growth throughout the novel. She is a likeable character that acts in a believable manner.

 

I love her relationship with Alec Hales. He is a mysterious and intriguing hero whom I could not help but like. They share a great chemistry, and I enjoyed their conversations.

 

Lyla Browning is a great friend to Dell. She is brave, especially considering she is a human among immortals.

 

M. J. Austin does a great job with her descriptions, particularly of the Underworld. She created a stimulating and credible world.

 

I love contemporary mythology novels and was impressed by this story. Bright Fire has a great take on the classic gods in a modern setting.

 

Bright Fire ends in a cliff hanger. I am anxious to see what M. J. Austin comes up with next.
