Review: Dreams of Fire by Christian Cura

Synopsis:

Meet Kara Hartman, a young painter living and working in D.C. She would love to let you believe she is just an ordinary young woman with a dream of sharing her art with the world. But she is hiding an astonishing secret: Kara can wield magic, the most powerful force in the universe. Traumatized by the loss of her brother, she wants nothing more to do with magic. But when an old foe resurfaces, hellbent on destroying all that she loves, Kara has no choice but to embrace the only power that can stop her.

Favorite Lines:

I was too immersed in the story that I didn’t keep track!

My Opinion:

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

I was interested in this book as soon as Cura emailed me with the synopsis and a request to review it. I am a sucker for any sort of fantasy or paranormal fiction. I thought that the premise of the book was really creative and interesting. The story follows Kara as she tries to live a life as an artist, free of her magical abilities. Throughout the story we see different points of view from other characters, which I always enjoy.

One thing I will say about this book is that I felt it was on the amateur side of writing. It didn’t quite have a flow that was pleasant and effortless. It was full of a lot of sentences that ended abruptly; I felt like I was constantly coming to a full stop before continuing to read.

Other than that, the story was interesting, and I did find myself reading to see what happens next.

Summary:

Overall, Cura did a great job at crafting a creative story that was unique in its own way. I was able to picture the different scenes as they were taking place. I just wish that the writing had flowed better. If you like action, romance, and magic, this is the book for you. Until next time, happy reading!
