Review ~ Soul Fire by Aprille Legacy

Soul Fire
(The Soul Trilogy #1)
by Aprille Legacy

Rose Evermore has lived in Ar Cena her entire life. Despite this, she still feels like an outsider, like a shoe that doesn’t quite fit. Halfway through her eighteenth year, she begins to notice changes around her, such as the fact that she has a stalker who can hold fire in his bare hands, or the dreams that she can turn into reality.

After a series of mishaps, Rose finds herself in an alternate realm, brought there to hone the magical power she was born with. Even here, though, Rose feels set apart. The Academy Masters treat her differently than the others. Her assigned soul mate avoids her when he should be working with her. Despite all this, Rose begins to grow into something no one could’ve seen coming; a hero.

With her, nothing is as it should be, and she decides to find out why. Soon she discovers that not everything about this new world is what it seems. 

Least of all her.

4 out of 5 stars

There is so much to like in Soul Fire!  Ms. Legacy has written such a fascinating story full of magic and intrigue.  I like how the author takes a different angle on a soul mate.  In this book, a soul mate can be any two people, no matter what age, gender or race.  They are best friends for life and they will always be someone to count on to be there when needed.  The only thing though, is they can NEVER fall in love, or they must suffer the harsh repercussions.  I really liked the character Rose, however when she enters the alternate realm, she never really questions why she is there.  She just excepts it like it's an everyday common occurrence to be ripped from your home and family.  I really wished this would have been addressed somewhat.  The thing I really liked about Rose is her caring for the servants.  She totally defends them and treats them as they should be treated unlike the others that treat them like second class crap.  And then there's Phoenix.....I am so in love with this guy!  He is Rose's soul mate, and although they had a very rocky start, the chemistry between the two was great! I truly was wanting their relationship to grow more.

Overall, this was a really good book that kept me turning the pages wanting more of this magical and fascinating world that Ms. Legacy has created.  It is action-packed and there was never a dull moment.  There are many unanswered questions that I hope will be addressed in the second book of this amazing trilogy.   Oh, and I want to see more of Phoenix!  Aprille Legacy is a very talented writer, and I cannot wait to read future works by her.  I highly recommend this book and this series if you are a Harry Potter fan or just love a good fantasy novel with a tad bit of romance mixed in. You will not be disappointed with this one!
