Rising Fire

Rising Fire: A Novel of the Stone Circles - Terri Brisbin


What if the standing stones and stone circles across the old Celtic world had a secret origin and use? What if some opened into another world? What if the goddess of fire was trapped beneath one?

Lovely and innocent, Brienne of Yester has always been able to manipulate fire, but when her powers suddenly surge, the simple life she once knew explodes.

Handsome, fearless, and commanding, William de Brus has been summoned by the king to investigate a nobleman rumored to have powers linked to the fabled fire goddess. When he chances upon Brienne, his desire for her is immediate. But as his mystical quest unfolds, William realizes that she is at the center of it — for Brienne possesses the very power he has been sent to vanquish....

As their attraction deepens, William attempts to free Brienne from the dark force beginning to control her — even when his duty demands that he treat her as an enemy. With emotions flaring, fire rising, and evil threatening at every turn, can the two lovers survive the coming battle and save all of humanity?








  I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley.

Rising Fire is a mix of everything in the paranormal world. It has fantasy, romance, mythology, and mystery among many other things. Although not quite it does have the workings that could be compared to Terry Goodkind's work.
I enjoyed the world that Terri creates and I enjoyed the banter our characters exchange as they progress through their journey. Rising Fire is fun, its creative and what I liked to think was a really good beginning to what could be an extraordinary series.
