A god. A mortal. A treacherous journey that will bind their hearts forever.

Lonely and cast out of society, Eden gets a visit from Tyondric, God of Fire, in answer to a prayer. Gods can only appear once in a person’s lifetime, so when he returns a second and third time, she knows her life will never be the same. When the beautiful god reveals Eden is The Pure Soul–the only one who can close the gate to the heavens and prevent the evil in Ananthuria from spreading–their relationship gets complicated.

Ty is willing to break every rule to save the world. And to save Eden.

As they set out on their dangerous journey to the gate Eden is kissed by the god. It’s then she realizes Ty holds the power to break through every wall she’s erected around herself and force his way into her heart. But what will happen when they close the gate and the world returns to normal? Can a mortal and a god ever be together? And with an evil lord on their trail, will they even succeed?

CONTENT WARNING: Contains sensually erotic scenes, a snarky heroine and a gorgeous god.

Quick & Dirty: One God, one mortal can they make the journey and save the world? Will their love survive….

Opening Sentence: “Please,” Eden begged as she flicked the flint against the steel.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Eden is alone, scared and hungry and prays for fire. Her prayers are answered by Tyondric, the God of Fire. Eden is completely shocked when the god shows up. He hangs out with her for a while after providing her with fire. It’s supposed to be a one-time deal, but Ty keeps showing up to help her and save her from people. He then realizes she is the pure soul that can save the world. Ty decides that he has to help her to the gate so that she can shut it despite the cost it might take on him.

They make a perilous journey and have to evade and escape the relentless Lord Victor who realizes just how important Eden is. Along the way they fall in love, even though Eden knows they have not future together. The gate gives humans’ access to Oria where the gods dwell and the person who controls that may as well be a god themselves. That is why Lord Victor wants to stop Eden at any cost, because she is the last one left with the power to close the gate.

When I first started reading it, I thought maybe it was a series or trilogy but it’s a standalone. I didn’t love it, but it was good. A very quick and easy read, and no insta-love! Yay! I know, but I just hate the “oh look I just met you and now I love you” vibes some romances give off. There is so much I want to say but spoilers so…ahhh! Seriously, though Eden is a pretty good heroine who has to make some tough choices at the end, she does it with dignity and grace. Along the way Ty loses more and more of his powers, becoming more human the longer he is out of Oria. I thought that was a great twist that the author used.

It made the ending all the more interesting! Okay, I will say this, Eden gets made a goddess, but the teaser is we already know Ty becomes more human over the course of the journey, so what happens at the end? Now you have to go read it because I just left you totally hanging!

Notable Scene:

“I have seen great love.”

“If she does not make it, we will abandon the world to its fate.”

“Though she’d never visited Estya, rumors of uprisings spread throughout Ananthuria as it became one of the last places to experience Victor’s touch.”

“You are a goddess now.”


FTC Advisory: Lyrical Press/Kensington provided me with a copy of Eden’s Fire. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.
