My Rating: 5 Roses

A sweet, light, and enjoyable read, Shadow Fire was a wonderful YA fantasy romance. I loved this book! With super sweet romance and a dangerous quest, this book was a delight. Loved it!

Ashlyn was a wonderful heroine. She was strong, clever, and could fight with the best of them. And, she was very determined when she set her mind to something. I thought she was a lovely, likable character.

Zane was absolutely adorable. He was a formidable opponent, yet he could be so very sweet. I loved how he was very loyal to those he loved and what he believed in and how he was a genuinely kind man. He was amazing and I totally loved him.

The romance was super sweet. Ashlyn and Zane were just wonderful together. Their romance was the type to leave a smile on your face. And, though this is definitely a clean romance, there was enough chemistry to turn up the heat.

I liked the secondary characters, as well. I loved the dashing and charming pirate that we meet later in the book and I liked how the animals (a wolf and a griffon) were treated as individual characters, especially because both were animals of complete intelligence. They were all great.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. This might not be an earth-shattering read, but it was fun, entertaining, and an utter delight.

Shadow Fire was a light, sweet, and absolutely fantastic YA fantasy romance. I loved this gem of a read. It was thoroughly engaging and I enjoyed every bit of it. It's a perfect, light book to read when you need a break from the dark and heavy stuff. YA lovers, this is a book you won't want to miss.
