Publisher's Summary

Nineteen years ago, on the island kingdom of Garlin, a girl was born. With charred skin as rough as rock, Vala was instantly feared. For how could one be scorched by magic when it had perished ages before? 

Recognizing an asset, the royal family welcomed her on their Guard. Her detail: the prince.
To watch. To protect. She has grown with him, lives her life for him. 

When the high kingdom’s princess comes to assess the prince, assassins of rival courtiers come to claim his life. One nearly succeeds in his mission. But with shadowy movements and charred skin like her own, Vala knows he is not like the rest. 

As threats to the prince continue and questions about Vala’s life begin to rise, she faces a fear worse than fire or water, worse even than losing him. 

She fears finding out who she truly is.

Captivating narration for a wondrous story

I had been wanting to read this book for a while but I never found the time to get invested like the story deserves. Thankfully I have a job that affords me 6/7 hours a day to myself driving around, so I was happy when the audiobook became available.

The story of Vala, an orphaned girl raised in a chateau with a prince she protects due to her unusual skin affliction, grabbed my attention with the first pages read. This narrator did a great job of emoting everything the characters were feeling throughout. The action and mysterious circumstances that will change Vala's life forever start happening pretty fast once you get into the world building.

There's a mixture of rich characters you grow to love... and hate. New revelations are revealed to her and a new love interst as well. Which sort of broke my heart at first but I was happy the way things worked out. There was never a dull moment from one moment to the next. I love how the book ended on such a dreamy moment of hope and promise for Vala leading into her next adventure!

Very invested

The opening scene in FALLEN FLAME hooked me immediately. I became instantly invested, and as the story went on, I truly grew to care about several of the characters and the mystery surrounding them. The writing is beautiful and descriptive, everything I could want from a fantasy while keeping things fast-paced. The narrator (Amelia Hugh) did an incredible job as well, and her voice paired with J.M. Miller’s writing is a match made in heaven.

Great

The thing I enjoyed most about listening to the story was that the plot twists actually kept me guessing! I enjoyed the curiosity I felt as the story was told and unfolded. I loved our main heroine, And how the author illuminated her strengths, despite the fact that she was different. It made her very relatable, and I think most people would feel the same. The writing was well done and there was no time wasted. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fallen Flame

Imagine being different from everyone around you. You don’t just feel different, you are different. Life is hard for Valla being the only one with the burnt skin. Not scarred, but charred. She is fire, and she don’t know why. Then enter a mysterious stranger. He seems like an enemy at first, but the more Valla gets to know him, the more he seems to be an ally. When her life gets flipped upside down, can he help her escape the mess?
I really like Valla’s story. I can tell that it will be fun, and complicated and messy, but well worth my time. I give Fallen Flame 4 stars and I look forward to finding out what happens next!

A flammable read!

Nineteen years ago, on the island kingdom of Garlin, a girl was born...
With charred skin as rough as rock, she was instantly feared...
For how could one be scorched by magic when it had perished ages before?

From start to finish, I was highly invested and interested with such an intriguing and magical read. I have truly fallen for this series and I am glad I have the next book to listen too. I look forward to listening to it.

The heroine was everything - I loved her voice, her inner strength and capabilities. Our heroine is simply the best. Very well written and descriptive, imaginative read.

Full of magic, royalty, assassins, threats, fears, mystery and a hint of romance.

Perfect for readers of fantasy romances.

The narration was splendid. It added to the novel and brings our heroine to life. Very happy with that!

Fallen Flame

Re-read via audio and I have to say the narration was excellent. It brought Vala’s story to life. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of this trilogy.

I have always loved JM Miller's books so I was beyond excited when I heard she was delving into the fantasy genre with not just one book but a whole series. So I was not surprised that I loved this books but I was surprised by how much I loved it. I won't recap the plot because enough other reviews do that but I will say I found this to be a unique and intriguing storyline from the beginning. It never read slow for me and it pulled me in for the first chapter so I kept turning the pages needing to know more. And Vala was a wonderful character. She's obviously different but uses that difference to show strength, not just physically but in how she sees herself and her infinite potential as the story progresses. There is this wonderful message that your differences may actually be your greatest asset and it may lead you down paths you never could have imagined before, even opening up new worlds.

The hint of romance in this book was just enough for me. Because of the unique storyline I don't think the author could give us much more without it seeming forced. Besides Vala needs to focus on self discovery before exploring any one else ;) I'm sure we will see more exploring in the next book and I can't wait to read all about it.

There are lots of questions that I am left with at the end of this one but I'm happy it's not a cliffhanger. And since it's only book one, I'm ok with that. I'm sure my answer will comen time. So excited for the next installment.

Fallen Flame Series

Fallen Flame (Fallen Flame Series, Book ) is the first book in this young adult fantasy romance series. A intriguing world suffused with adventure, betrayal, magic, mysterious and a dust of romance. The mc Vela tells her story in single pov. Her character is well developed and intriguing. The synopsis is alluring and the plot unfolds seamlessly. I would have liked more details and multiple pov's to get the other characters thoughts

Amelia Hugh accentuates the fantasy with her storytelling. Her inflection is very smooth, and exuberant. Excellent narration.
