Book Review: Fire Born By Rayanne Haines

Fire Born
(The Guardian #1)
By Rayanne Haines

When Alex Taleisin’s immortal DNA kicks in after a fight for her life against something not-quite-human in the YMCA parking lot, her Aunt finally lets her in on the family secret. They’re Immortal – Elementals to be precise. Only, Alex is a little something more, and until they discover what, her life is in danger.

Collum Thronus, Guardian of the Races and savage King of the Dragons has no choice but to protect Alex and find her father’s people. He made a promise and Collum always keeps his promises. Now, he needs to keep his hands off his charge.

Enter an insane grandfather, a shifter with a hidden agenda, and a witch with a shoe addiction and soon Alex is wishing for a quiet house in the hills with the dragon she’s falling for. But a battle is coming and Alex knows the only way to find her answers is to trust her powers and become the warrior she was destined to be.

My Review:

For some reason, I thought this was going to be better than it was. The universe the author created had so much potential but everything fell short because there was barely any world-building. I felt like I was guessing and trying to piece things together that weren't even there to begin with throughout the novel.

Alex started off seeming like a very smart and kick-butt heroine, but somewhere along the way she started making so many questionable decisions that she lost my respect. Who in their right mind goes to a guardian that someone you trust told you you can trust and then go off the deep end with someone else just because they're "family". I don't know about you but a long-distance powerful relative can also kill you if they want to too. I also hated how blindly she went into the mating because no one ever explained anything to her and she was just obligated to accept it.

Collum was okay. He was protective and cared for her but tried to play it cool and be aloof. It was annoying how he never explained anything to her but still let very permanent things happen to her and thought she was just going to have to accept it and move on with him.

The different point of views with the Council was annoying. I didn't care for them and they just took up space. For being these all-powerful creatures they were really dumb and narcissistic (with the exception of one).

The ending was also average. I wasn't expecting it but I had an inkling something was coming. Mar was by far the most entertaining character to read about. She flew off the pages but considering my dislike of her possible mate I'm not sure if I want to read her book any time soon.
