Summary
A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2016! An NPR Best Book of 2016!"I can say, without a doubt, that A Promise of Fire is going on my keeper shelf...I cannot remember the last time I wanted to both savor and devour a book." — Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksKINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER... BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP ITCatalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods-and her homicidal mother-have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever. Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm-until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

Summary
Despite her reputation as a Kingmaker, soothsayer Catalia "Cat" Fisa has turned her back on both the magic-wielding elite who use their gifts to oppress their subjects and the non-magical upstarts who would use her powers to further their own political agendas. She succeeds by disguising herself as an elderly fortune teller in a traveling circus until she's captured by Griffin, a warlord who needs Cat's assistance to defend his realm. Dismissing him as yet another power-hungry political player, Cat comes to revise her opinion as he defends her from assassins. -- Description by Gillian Speace
