Présentation de l'éditeur

From New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur comes a brand-new series featuring heroine Emberly Pearson—a phoenix capable of taking on human form and cursed with the ability to foresee death....
 
Emberly has spent a good number of her many lives trying to save humans. So when her prophetic dreams reveal the death of Sam, a man she once loved, she does everything in her power to prevent it from happening. But in saving his life, she gets more than she bargained for.

Sam is working undercover for the Paranormal Investigations Team, and those who are trying to murder him are actually humans infected by a plaguelike virus, the Crimson Death—a by-product of a failed government experiment intended to identify the enzymes that make vampires immortal. Now all those infected must be eliminated.
 
But when Emberly’s boss is murdered and his irreplaceable research stolen, she needs to find the guilty party before she goes down in flames....

Unlike the author’s Riley Jenson and Dark Angels series, while still in a world with vampires and shifters, this world, also set in Australia, appears to have a different take on other species, which ones are known about by humans and the policing force that handles non-humans.

Emberly Pearson is a phoenix, meaning she’s a spirit of fire that takes a human form, a fire form and can also shift into a firebird. She’s lived a number of lifetimes with Rory, her phoenix soul partner, and they need each other to survive, but the species is cursed to never be in a loving relationship. Each lifetime she finds a man she loves, but her heart is broken every time. When Emberly dreams about the death of Sam, a cop she’d fallen for who dumped her five years ago because he assumed she was cheating on him with Rory, she saves his life and finds herself in the middle of a drama involving a new scary breed of a type of vampire, the murder of her boss, issues with Sam, an investigation with a fire fae and a whole lot of trouble.

Each of the Riley Jensen stories was an individual story itself. This one, not so much as the only conclusion to this first book is surviving a major confrontation and establishing a relationship to go forward with tackling a rather large ongoing threat.

Plenty of drama and action as trouble follows Emberly at every turn. The author’s characters are never shy about casual sex, so we also get some pretty steamy scenes and sexual tension. And thankfully, while well-written, we don’t get explicit details each and every time. The phoenix aspect is unique to any other urban fantasy story I’ve ever read and Emberly is both smart and capable, and doesn't back down. The main characters are both likeable as well as interesting, as is the threat being faced.

I found it to be an enjoyable read that was difficult to put down and the next story will be an automatic pre-order.

The Good

You know what I haven't read about yet, but is a creature I absolutely adore?? Phoenixes! And Arthur has provided me with an investigative type series with a phoenix as the main character. I really enjoyed the Riley Jenson series when I read it a while ago, so all signs point to 'Go' with this series. Learning the ins and outs of phoenix life was quite fun. Emberly has quite a few neat tricks up her sleeve. I'm not going to go into detail with her power or the mythology around the phoenixes too much, but it was incredibly interesting to dive into. There is also a good element of needing recharged and power draining which I liked or she would never be in any real danger and it helps to make her much more relatable.

This one also has the mystery element. Emberly finds herself in the midst of an investigation which provides the majority of the plot. There was a great mixture of phoenix, red cloaks, fae, vampires, werewolves, and I'm sure there will be more to come in the future. I'm not quite sure what's going on with the 'darkness' mentioned numerous times that resides in Sam. However, it's great to follow the investigation filled with some inventive bad guys and good guys.

I enjoyed the characters. Some we only had brief glimpses of like Rory, but since he's Emberly's partner through life then I'm sure I'll learn all about him in more detail. Jackson was a fun one and HOT. He's a fire fae that Emberly finds herself working with since he's a private investigator.

The Bad

The overused mention of Sam's 'darkness' and how bad Emberly wanted him every time he came on scene was a little annoying. There was also no resolution to the mystery in this one which means it must continue on. There was a clear ending to the book, just no solving of what they were investigating.

The Romance

I actually really like the curse element on Emberly and all the phoenixes. Apparently, they have to mate with a phoenix forever and that person is with them through all their rebirths, but they will never emotionally be in love with them. It also means they can't really find love elsewhere either since they will always be cheating on them with their mate. It's very saddening to imagine multiple lives without true love, but I'm hoping Arthur has something good in store for us in the future. Also, it's amazing that Emberly hasn't given up hope about finding her love. There was a lot of lust to go around though, and this is very adult.

Conclusion

A good start to the series with a new-for-me creature that's very interesting to learn about. The pace was full of action, never boring, and the characters were entertaining. While there were a few blips that I could have done without, I really enjoyed it and will continue with the series. There are some similarities here with the Riley Jenson series (detective work, lots of hooking up, and the supernatural creatures), but it kept everything I loved and was enough different to not be a replica. Recommended.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Novelty, but then vamps, fae and shifters and a lot of running around without enough of a conclusion to make it satisfying. 29 juillet 2014

Emberly is tough and sexy and enjoys life...over and over again - as a phoenix. The phoenix manifest as a human is something new, something I've never come across before. It's novel, but what is also refreshing is that Emberly is not angsty or jaded for having been around so long.

The reason I'm giving this story 3 stars is that I felt it lacked a substantial ending. We are introduced to the ex, who has become a bit of a mystery, there is a new and mysterious evil lurking about, there are murders but those aren't completely solved by the end and along the way we discover a lot about Emberly's history, the important people in her life, her new allies, her abilities, weaknesses and strengths, and to add to all that, Emberly has also been noticed by the aforementioned mysterious evil. In my opinion the story ended up being like a long and detailed set-up and teaser because of the lack of any major resolution or revelation (no big mysteries are cleared up). The lack of a substantial pay-off at the end of this book means that I'm not particularly anticipating the next book.

I am not so secretly in love with Keri Arthur. I think she kept me interested in urban fantasy when I was starting to get tired of it, and in all honestly she is part of what keeps me going back to the genre. I like many people were very sad when the saga that was Riley Jenson ended, so I was looking for my next great Keri Arthur fix one day when I ran across this book.

I think part of the reason why this book was so enjoyable to me is that it didn’t feel like it was a repeat of all the other books in the urban fantasy genre. I don’t think I have ever read a book that features phoenixes as the lead, although I am sure they are out there. I love reading Arthur’s version of mythological creatures, she always makes then so interesting and complex that I can’t help but get pulled into their world.

As I have come to expect in Keri Arthur’s books there is way more going on then meets the eye. She does such a great job of keeping me guessing about what’s really going on. I also really liked the whole being back an old lover from the past and throwing them together and having all that built in drama going on.

I really like Emberly, I think she is a great female lead, and I think she is going to be fun to read and get to know in the next books in this series. So part of being a phoenix means that Emberly is paired with another phoenix (Rory) who she literally needs in order to survive, but at the same time is cursed to never romantically love. This definitely makes things difficult for any relationships that she tries to have. So when Emberly has a vision about Sam’s death, a man she used to love who left her, you just know things are going to get complicated.

So there are three main guys in this story, Rory (the co-phoenix), Sam (the ex-lover who is in danger), and Jackson (a fire fae who Emberly ends up working with). I liked Rory, he’s the strong dependable type who clearly cares about Emberly. Sam, was, well he’s complicated. He’s a bit on the judgemental side, who made me not exactly like him, also he is a bit on the bossy side, thinking he is in charge of everything, which made me want to slap him more than once. Jackson I liked a lot. He’s a complex guy, he’s good to Emberly, in that he really treats her as an equal more than anything (which after how Sam deals with her is like a breath of fresh air).

All in all, I liked this first book in the series. The world building is fun and interesting. The mystery of who is behind everything with the Red Caps kept me both interested and guessing. I really think it was the interpersonal relationships that made this book a solid like for me though. If you are a fan of Keri Arthur’s other books or just like urban fantasy in general, then you should check out this new series from Keri Arthur.

Fireborn is book one in the Souls of Fire series. The story revolves around Emberly Pearson, a phoenix. Emberly works as an assistant to a scientist/researcher, but things take a dangerous turn when her boss's place gets ransacked and he winds up murdered. Emberly is forced to work with her ex-boyfriend, Sam Turner, to help solve who is behind the murder. Sam's part of the Paranormal Investigations Team (PIT) and from what I gleaned from the past he's changed a lot from when him and Emberly dated.

I was so excited to read this book because I don't think I've read any that had a phoenix as the main character. I loved the aspects the author included about phoenixes, they have multiple forms and are able to be born again as long as their mate is there and alive. One aspect I didn't enjoy was the curse that their mate could never be the one they love. It pretty much makes it where the phoenix in question will always cheat since they need their mate to survive.

I've been in a reading slump lately and sadly I think it affected me while reading this book. I had a bit of a hard time keeping my interest while reading Fireborn. I've loved Keri Arthur's previous books in the past, so it isn't going to stop me from reading book two. The paranormal aspects were quite nice and were probably my favorite part of the book. I loved learning about phoenixes, and the fire fae. Keri Arthur manages to weave a new world for us and makes me want to know what happens next. If you're a fan of Urban Fantasy and want a phoenix book, I suggest this series.
