Publisher's Summary

Heart pounding and laugh out loud funny, USA Today best-selling author K.F. Breene will take you on a magical joy ride you won't soon forget.

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn't the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don't have many options. Dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old-as-sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day. Knowing I'm poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I'll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case. Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I'm stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn't know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage.

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this story. Reagen, a bounty hunter whose down on her luck, Darius, a vampire prince lets say, and Dizzy & Callie the all powerful mages make for an intriguing, interesting, sardonically humorous read that will keep you wanting more. This story has just the right blend of splendid action and passion to keep my wayward interest. The poop scene had me cracking up. I'm looking forward to book 2.

    Story
    "Fun Fiction"

    This is the first book I've read from KF and half way through I found book 2 and bought it.

    It was a fun read and an even better listen.

    Our heroine is caustic, sarcastic and generally just kinda badass.

    The plot of the book was pretty cool too. Power hungry mage running amok and causing general havoc for not just the magical world but also the vampiric one too.

    The vampire is kinda douchie but he grows on you and his true care for the heroine is sincere if not always visible.

    Definitely gonna be enjoying this as a re-read which is my measure of a good book. The narration is stellar and makes the pacing of the book seem to fly by. Excellent find!!

    Story
    "Badassery Galore!"

    Reagan Somerset has a secret. A big one. To keep her secret, she hides on the fringes of the magical world as a freelance supernatural bounty hunter.

    The vampires have a secret, too, and they need Regan to help them keep it. Put between a rock and a hard place, Reagan has little choice but to play ball with the vamps. Only thing is, Reagan’s not a team player.

    This is a great book with well developed characters and a sound plot. The setting is in New Orleans and Ms. Breene does an excellent job of portraying the personality and feel of the city. As I think about the book, I realize what makes this novel so enjoyable for me is the realness she portrays of New Orleans. I’ve been there. I’ve made fun of the wanna-be witches lurking in cemeteries. I can picture Reagan’s house sitting somewhere in the 9th Ward, the tourist tours going through the French Quarter and I would certainly believe that there are magic workers living in the Garden District.

    That narrator for this audiobook, Ms. Nicole Poole, is one of my favorites. She has a great voice and is very adept in creating believable character voices.

    This book features a snarky, supernatural bounty hunter full of badassery, a dynamic duo of crazy mages, and a sexy-as-sin Elder vampire. Listen at your own risk.

    "Great book!!! Didn't want to stop listening"
    Where does Born in Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is different than what I usually listen too! But I loved the story and didn't want to stop listening to see what happened.


    What other book might you compare Born in Fire to and why?

    It is different than any other book that I have listened to so far. I usually read books and listen to self help books and sometimes listen to fictional stories so I don't have any other books that I can really compare this book to.


    What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice was easy to listen to and she did a great job with the different characters in the story


    Any additional comments?

    Great book can't wait to listen to the next one!!

    "This book was fun to listen to!"

    I almost didn’t buy this book because of three major reasons for me. First, I am extremely tired of vampires and shape shifters; I am really beginning to hate vampires. Second, the cover no one in a wife beater is sexy, no one. Third, there is a second book and it’s not on audible. I have had this happen before when I like a series but audible doesn’t get all the books, it makes me mad. I am glad that I was desperate enough to try a new author and it turned out that I love this book! This book was funny, interesting and kept my attention while doing the dishes and laundry. Reagan goes in my top 5 of strong, compelling, powerful and witty women that know how to win a fight. This series will be an automatic buy for me. The narrator was perfect for Reagan because she knew exactly how to do timing during Reagan’s comedic moments. This is the best book I have read or listened to this year. I rarely give a 5 star review especially when I didn’t care for the ending but this book was 5 stars and I will listen to it again.

    Story
    "Entertaining New Series"
    Would you listen to Born in Fire again? Why?

    Yes. I love this author and she has never let me down when I a seeking a bit of escapism.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's storyline was a bit unique compared to what I have read to date. I like when I discover a new twist in this genre.


    What about Nicole Poole’s performance did you like?

    The performance was fine. The reader could have expressed Reagan's "snarkiness" a bit better though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Inspired several chuckles throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    Born in Fire is a unique tale that spins multiple aspects of the paranormal genre into an action-packed story. I have purchased everything that KF Breene has written and was so excited when Born in Fire made it to Audible! Book One of the Fire and Ice Trilogy introduces Reagan; an unconventional heroine with a dry sense of humor and an affinity for resorting to violence to manage situations or emotions expediently ;) As a supernatural bounty hunter, she is forced to work with an elder vampire to make “ends meet.” Darius is OLD, refined, and extremely attractive. He also happens to be arrogant and aloof; at least on the surface. As the story unfolds Reagan and Darius begin to understand one another better and a wary friendship forms…..okay, maybe some attraction too.<br/><br/>Reagan has some pretty big secrets and Darius proves that he is willing to keep them for her………at least from his fellow vamps. His motives remain uncertain at this point in the trilogy, but I found myself believing that he was truly intrigued by Reagan and simply wasn’t sure what he wanted to do about it. This may be a bit of a projection on my part, as most of Breene’s leading men have initially had a surface aversion to the “lead female” in her other series. However, this technique does build tension in the plot and allows the reader to continue with the story in hopes that these characters eventually connect in a meaningful way. <br/><br/>Rest assured that Book Two in Fire & Ice allows us to see a bit more of Darius’ character unfold; as he remains a HUGE enigma at the close of this story. Overall I found this to be an entertaining read and look forward to the rest of the series! <br/><br/>Make sure you check out KF Breene’s WARRIOR CHRONICLES and DARKNESS series too. This writer has a knack for creating witty, sarcastic characters that “grow on you” over time. Her work will leave you smiling; and at times, laughing out loud!<br/>

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born in Fire to be better than the print version?

    Yes I prefer the audio version because I drive a lot and time passes with a good book ..this time I bought the kindle book so I then could purchase the audio book for very little !


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the humour , not really laugh out loud but certainly smileable .


    What about Nicole Poole’s performance did you like?

    Nicole is a skilled narrator so seeing her as the narrator on this book made it a more attractive proposition. I was not disappointed


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No , didn't grab me with the intensity of some others but that's not detrimental to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I have bought the second book but have had to get the kindle book as there does not appear to be an Audible version ( yet?)
