#BookReview: Fireborn (A Born Prophecy, #1) by Katie MacAlister


Synopsis: What if a war was taking place under your nose? 
Two ancient races locked in a battle for survival. 
Which side would you take? 

Allegria appears to all to be nothing more than a simple priestess devoted to worship of the sun goddess. Hallow is a masterless apprentice. Deo was meant to save the world and bring the Fireborn and Starborn together in peace. 

But then invaders beseiged the land of the Starborn, breaking the prophecy. Now Allegria has fled the priesthood, and wields the power of the sun. Hallow accepts the mantle of leadership he so long avoided. And Deo is tormented and tortured by the power of the invaders, using chaos itself to create an army that will drive the interlopers from the land, and bring about the peace of the Fourth Age. 

The three unlikely heroes must learn to trust where there is suspicion, to believe where there is only doubt, and to fight when all hope is lost.

About the Author: For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than fifty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her dogs and cat, and can often be found lurking around online. You are welcome to visit her at http://www.katiemacalister.com

My Review: The jumping around in this book will kill you!! That is the first thing you need to know about this one.  We have three POVs and for this book one POV is 1st person and the other two are 3rd.  That was horrible to find out!!  This change made the story feel so choppy to me.  The world building felt not complete and the timeline was a mess.  I am so hit and miss with adult fantasies these days as it seems that they think you have to jump all over the place to get anything done and you really don't.  The plot to this one seemed very think as well.  I think that this just may not be the author for me.  However, I have talked to a few others who have read her other books and said that they are a lot better.  So maybe I will try one of those.
