REVIEW: Soulfire by Juliette Cross


In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.

Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.

As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.

Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen's father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.

As the first book in a new series, this was a great start. The conflict, while compelling, was on the light side making for a bit of a short read compared to what I was expecting. However, the story also wasn’t unnecessarily drawn out either.

The world building was wonderful! Everything we needed to know to understand and appreciate the setting was demonstrated. We’re shown what kind of weapons exist, some history of the Morgon race, the tone of the province the characters live and work in, and the nature of Morgons in general.

Lucius was totally loveable. He’s definitely got some alpha impulses, but he’s also very sweet with Jessen. I really liked Jessen, mostly because I found her to be incredibly brave on multiple occasions. I look forward to learning more about their future.

Bottom Line:

Soulfire is an awesome start to what’s sure to be an addicting series. Grab this one for an engrossing and emotional read.
