Book Club Thursday: Review

Welcome back to Book Club Thursday!

We are so happy you could join us. Today we are reviewing Cursed by Fire by Jacquelyn Frank! 

For centuries, Dethan has been trapped in a fiery inferno for defying the gods and snatching the power of immortality. Condemned to have his battle-hardened body licked by flames only to regenerate and be consumed all over again, Dethan has lost all hope—until the Goddess of Conflict appears. She will release him from torment—if he’ll use his power and strength as a warrior to raise an army and defeat a fierce enemy faction of gods.

Free to live as a man once again, Dethan meets Selinda—heir to the throne of Hexis—and his thoughts quickly turn from the conquest of cities to the conquest of this headstrong beauty. Betrothed to a cruel, calculating powermonger, Selinda needs a champion, and so Dethan enters into another bargain: If she will share her bed—and her body—with him, Dethan will save her city from destructive forces within and without. As the lovers ignite a searing passion, Dethan will risk all—even the wrath of the Goddess of Conflict—for a chance to make Selinda his forever.


I always enjoy reading Jacquelyn Frank. I will admit that I'm very behind on her books. As much as I try, I can't keep up with everything. When we picked this for Book Club Thursday I was really happy about that. I now wouldn't feel so far behind anymore. I love Franks writing, she has great characters in her books. I really enjoyed the idea of this book. The plot was very good. I found that at times the story dragged for me. She's never had a ton of dialogue in her books, this one had more then some of her others so you'd think I'd like it better then the ones from her past. But to be honest I'm not sure that I do. There are parts that I really enjoyed, then the others I was like...oh well. I think that some day I will read Cursed by Fire again and see if my attitude changes. If you've read Cursed by Fire I'd love to hear your thoughts. Happy reading!

  1. Oh I've not tried her yet. Hrms! So many books I need to get to.

    1. I know the feeling. Try her very first series. It's very good.

    1. It sucks because it's the first book you've read of hers and she's done so much better on others.

  3. I don't think I would read another unless there were better reviews. I loved the Nightwalker series!
