    Description

    For a decade, I’ve hated the supernaturals who owned my world. I hunted them. I killed them.

    And now, in the most grand twist of fate - I am bonded to one of them.

    Oh, the irony.

    Being a supernatural bounty hunter isn’t exactly a popular job. But after the magic wars, there aren’t many things a human can do that will put food on the table. Thankfully, anything my right hook can’t handle, my guns can.

    Or so I thought.  

    When a demon summoning runs awry, the being that comes into this world changes everything. I’m not sure if he’s truly a demon or a god, but one thing I do know is that he’s after me. I’d like to see him try.

    I’ve got a promise to fulfill, and I’m not backing down. The only way out of this is his death or mine, and I’ll do anything to survive. Even if that means making a deal with the devil.

    If you can’t get enough of books by Ella Summers, Annette Marie, Shannon Mayer, Deborah Wilde, K.F. Breene, Jeaniene Frost, Kelly St. Clare, and Linsey Hall then dive right in to the dangerous depths of New Chicago. Beware of headstrong heroines with snark. These ladies don’t bark. They bite.

    Okay, the narrator is fuckin awesome

    The female narrator makes you feel like your right there in the FMC's world. I don't feel like she's a robot going through the motions when there's action and an overall great match for the tough FMC. It took me some time to give this a chance, but I'm so glad I did, because I'm loving it. The description isn't as cut and dry as it sounds. Everything is done in a slick way with adequate world building without being too info dumpy. Although sometimes I really hate starting a read when its the first release, especially when its this good, because now I'm just itching to read book 2 now, instead of a million years from now.

    Ready for more of Piper!

    Piper is a really strong heroine who is struggling with self-acceptance and trusting others. The post-Magic Wars world is compelling and there's just enough background to make sure you can follow what's happening. The majority of the story centers around Piper and Natalie. It's refreshing to read a story that's got a strong female friendship at the core. I did wish for more Ronan but I am guessing we'll get plenty more of him in subsequent books. The balance of mystery and reveals were well done and never did I get frustrated with the uncertainty. There were also plenty of new mysteries added so that things didn't get boring. Some moments throughout were slower than others but the pacing was pretty good. It does end on a bit of a cliffhanger but in a way that just sets up the premise of the next book.

    There are some romantic elements throughout but I wouldn't label this as a paranormal romance; it's more of an Urban Fantasy with some dystopian thrown in.

    I loved Savannah Gilmore's narrating. Her voice is lovely and I especially liked how she did Ronan's voice. I liked the male narrator too but wasn't a fan of his female voice.

    Overall, I am excited to continue reading Piper's story and can't wait for her and Ronan to finally get together! Good start to a new series.

    I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    Wooooow what a way to start a series!

    I haven't been listening or reading as much M/F romance books because of my love for reverse harem and M/M but Touched By Fire by Ken Carpenter grabbed my attention from the very beginning and I literally devoured this book in like 2 or 3 days. Anytime I had a break from my job or who I was doing chores, I was listening. I am impatiently waiting book 2 on audio because I need to know what happens next! I don't have as much time to read, but I sure can listen to my hearts content ❤️

    For the narration, I wasn't familiar with these actors but I thought they did a good job. They were phenomenal at their same sex characters (Savannah for the women voices and Adam for the male voices). They weren't as strong with the opposite sex characters but it didnt detract me from the story enough to downgrade them to a 4 stars. I thought Savannah nailed the heartbreak and anger and stubbornness of the characters while Adam did a good job with the dominant males (and being all growly haha). I hope they continue this series and look forward to listening to more of them in the future.

    In terms of the story, I really enjoyed this urban fantasy, pananormal tension-filled book. I like that Kel focuses on plot first over romance in this book, its refreshing and really sets up the stage for the next ones in the series. I thought the back and forth between Piper and Nat was great, made me giggle and smile as their relationship grew. I am not sure how I feel about the demons yet, but we shall see in the next books. I loved the magic and powers part, and I hope we get to see more about the other supernaturals. I could imagine some of these scenes in my head (very similar to the vibe the cover portrays so great job at keeping to that theme/keeping the theme constant.

    I definitely would recommend this series and audiobook! I will be listen to book 2 once its available like ASAP. Amazing first book (and audiobook) for the Magic Wars series ❤️❤️❤️

    I think this is my favorite book from Kel yet!

    Seriously loved this book and don’t know how I’m gonna survive until the next one gets here. The narrators were so good. Hope to hear them narrating lots of other books. Piper & Ronan are 🔥🔥🔥 & I like Nat a lot. I don’t want to say anymore and give anything away. Do yourself a favor and get this audiobook. 🎧❤️🎧

    Promising Plot But A Bad Execution

    When I first read the good reads summary for this book I thought it was exciting and interesting, but as I listened to the story my interest fizzled and I found myself just getting more and more irritated. I am not a fan of books that decorate or flower the wording/description and this book is filled with that, you can't go two or more lines without hearing something compared to something else as a descriptors. I made it to probably more than halfway through the book when I realized that I didn't actually like the main character, there's not much that happens that makes me want to like her or makes me want for her to win. There's a constant reminder that the main character is constantly alone and that she's a killer and she doesn't feel when she kills, it comes across like they are trying too hard to get her personality across. Although there were things in the book that I wasn't a fan of, I think that the true thing that makes me give this story a 2 is the narrator and how melancholy she tells the story. If there narrator could have possibly told the story in a different tone or even tried to have fun with it then I think I could have liked it more.

    disturbing and awkward

    I struggled to finish the book. it had a semi okay plot but it was heavily overshadowed by the odd, darkly disturbing sexual undertones....but I didn't personally find it as sexy really. I think it falls a bit too much in the arena of masochism and misogyny. At this time in our history..I am surprised this even flys. The heroine was written to be strong but her actions at times didn't really align. I felt that both the hero (Ronan , I assume) and the and the anti-hero, Lucifer came off in equal parts as creepy. I kept hoping the heroine would wack them both!

    interesting story

    I quite like the story, but the murmured narration is a little annoying to me.

    Soo hooked on this author's series!

    When it comes to fantasy/urban fantasy, I tend to get lost in the world-building, but Kel did a great job giving us just the right amount. I'll have to do the ebook for a re-read since I'm sure I missed some things in translation.

    I'm quite the fan of Piper, she's a bit of an anti-heroine aka a kind of character I haven't read before. It's vastly different and while it won't work for everyone, but it worked for me. No doubt she's a bada** and can hold her own, but she's a bit of a jerk. We've read a lot of heroes like this and we tend to love them, So I'm totally here for the role reversals ;-)

    Overall, I thought this was a solid start to this series, I can't wait to dive in even deeper. I wish we got to see more of the hero, but we got a few more books to go, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

    Seriously, I'm so glad I found this author this year, ready for more!

    Great story but narrator takes some getting use to!

    At first I didn’t think I would be able to get through this book because of the narrator; however, after a while, the story took over and I couldn’t stop listening. It turned into a nail bitting story that left to me dying to know what happens next!
