Fire Bound by Christine Feehan

Fire Bound is the latest in the Sisters of the Heart series by Christine Feehan. Starting with the blurb:

The Blurb:  Flame-haired Lissa Piner is a skilled glass blower whose delicate gift conceals a burning inner strength that can destroy as exquisitely as it can create. Commissioned to design chandeliers for a string of luxury hotels, her remarkable skills have taken her to Italy. But Lissa’s real mission there is a secret. For her entire life has been a lie, leading to a chance to avenge a terrible wrong. Enlisted as her bodyguard is Casmir Prakenskii, a trained assassin living off the grid. In Lissa, he sees a kindred spirit—something unexpected and wicked, mysterious and sensual. But more than desire is about to bring them together: because both of their pasts cry out for revenge. And for two people with this many secrets, this much passion, and this many enemies, someone is bound to get burned.

My thoughts: I enjoyed this book alot. It had many things I enjoy in a story–interesting characters, some organized crime, betrayal, and of course, love. However, I will advise you that elements of this story can be a bit harsh to read. Both Lissa and Casimer are tied to the fire elemental. Lissa is one of the Sisters of the Heart–a group of women who came together after undescribable violence in their lives to form a tightly woven family. Each of them are tied to an element and will mate with one of the Prakenskii brothers. Lissa is on a mission–she is avenging the murders of her family but must come face to face with a betrayal she never imagined. I liked both Lissa and Casimer although it took me a while to warm up to Casimer. It also set up the last book in this series well. Each book can be read as a standalone but I always recommending reading in order.

    1. A flame-haired glass blower with fire power and the body guard that just wants to “protect” her body is cliche??? You’re crazy!

      I love you Debra! And I haven’t read this book so it might be amazing but…words right out of my mouth Paul.

      You’re the best though Debra, you know it 🙂

  1. Paul, Thanks for your comment. I welcome any comments on my reviews and love discussions. I think you raise a valid point about the cliché issue. However, I think that in the sub-genre of paranormal romance, a certain over-the-top” storyline is almost always in use. I do agree that this can lead to some clichés in stories, but my rating system is decided upon the answer to the question “Did I enjoy my time in the world” or “do I want those hours of my life back”? If I enjoy a story (even if it is over the top), then I can overlook some clichés in the story’s plotline as long as it is interesting. Given that, my goal for reviewing is simply to give my opinion and hopefully back it up with some reasons why I feel the way I do and to make sure my review is coherent and well-written. Again, thanks for the comment/discussion and for following the blog.
