Fire Heart

The Dragon of Umbra #1

By Emma Hamm

Expected publication: January 31st 2022


They handed her a sword and bid her to take a throne…Lorelei is half elf in a kingdom where that bloodline is synonymous with “slave”. The Umbra King holds everyone captive with his pet dragon who knows no mercy. She hides in the shadows and steals to stay alive, until a rebel group gives her an offer she can’t refuse.

The King seeks a bride. If she can get close enough, she could drive a dagger into that wicked man’s heart. But the bridal games are more difficult than most. Lorelei must prove herself not only beautiful, but talented, poised, and deadly as the king. However, the closer she gets to saving her kingdom, the more she realizes a singular problem stands in her way.

The dragon.

The King’s bodyguard is more than a slathering beast. He’s a man. And the longer she’s near him, the more she realizes that perhaps the king isn’t the most dangerous person in the kingdom. Perhaps she had to guard not only her body, but her heart. For a dragon mates for life, and they’re hard pressed to give up their treasures.


Wow! This was my first step into Emma Hamm’s writing, and I have to say I am hooked. I loved her writing style, the plot, the artwork… It just is so descriptive and sucks you into the story so well. It was like The Selection meets Beauty and the Beast with a side of Throne of Glass. I adored this story.

Lore is a hard-core, half-elf who is turned into an assassin when the rebellion sees that she has the potential to become the Kings bride. She is beautiful, strong, determined, I either want to be or at least be best friends with… Enter Abraxas, and for sure I want to be her… lol… Abraxas is the dragon shifter assigned to protect the king. Whether he is there by force or choice .. his eye has fallen upon Lore.

The King is despicable, and Lore has to try to push aside her disgust and win the kings heart so she can kill him. Abraxas is only in her way … but as she tries to get closer to the king she inevitably becomes close with his guard. How can she navigate her feelings towards the dragon who has a link to her tragic past, and focus on her mission?

Oh my the slow burn romance in this book is to die for, and I was there for it and I am here for the next book which I need ASAP!
