    One thought on “Heart of Flame”

    1. The only stories of djinns that i remember reading were from the thousand and one arabian nights. After that there were the disney movies and later on amazing ropeplaying games like Prince of Persia. Anyway, I'm so very glad Ashbless decided to write this story the way she did. The pace, the cadence, the action described, everything echoed the spirit of a desert adventure. This is definitely a romance, but then so were most of the old classics. Folklore is hardly complete without stories of prin [...]

    2. Heart of Flame is a fantasy with romantic elements. Set in the mystical world of 9th Century Arabia, this story is a fast-paced quest that held me spellbound and kept me turning the pages.Taqla bint-Yusef is a sorceress who lives in seclusion, hiding her true nature from everyone except her trusted servants. Sometimes, she leaves her home in the guise of a man called Zahir, weaving a spell to make her appear as a plain young male. At other times, she weaves spells to appear as Umar, an elderly w [...]

    3. I'm a big fan, just love Janine Ashbless's writing style and her stories. This one is especially recommended if you enjoy fantasy reads set in ancient worlds, (think Arabian Nights.) It's a delight. Sorcery in ancient Arabia with romance elements, it's a real page turner and I gobbled the story up, loved every moment of it.

    4. Originally posted at: whippedcream2/201I was about to lose my admiration for Scherezade. Then it got interesting. What started out as a book that I had to force myself to read became the story I couldn’t put down!While reading the early chapters of this tale, I found it very easy to become confused by the constant introduction of characters and their apparent disassociation from one another. It was a bit frustrating and seemingly pointless. Am I glad that I kept “plugging” away!This is def [...]

    5. Unique setting, time period, world-building, mythical or fairy tale-like quest. The first half to 2/3rds of this book were shaping up to be a 4 star read for me. However, the end of the book fell apart and was more like a 2 star read. There is great tension in the romances, very believable obstacles to each couples' HEA and poof! I just couldn't believe in the resolutions, they felt inorganic and hastily wrapped up.

    6. While the story line was sort of different the plot has been done numerous times. I liked it but I could tell how it was going to end it was interesting though the adventures experienced.
