Review: Alaskan Fire (Guardians of the First Realm Book 1) by Sara King

Book Blurb

For lovers of Contemporary Fiction and Romance, Werewolves & Shifters, Mythological Fantasy, Paranormal & Urban Fantasy, and Adventure Fantasy, Alaskan Fire is a groundbreaking leap into the myths and monsters of old.

Blaze MacKenzie is a brand new heiress who just discovered that her ‘parents’ actually found her abandoned as an infant in some bizarre human sacrifice in the woods. Along with that letter came a six hundred thousand dollar check, a strange golden feather, and the ability to move to the Alaska Bush and begin her dream-life living off the Grid.

Unfortunately for Blaze, life in rural Alaska isn’t as peaceful as she expected. Among her many startling discoveries is that her sexy new handyman, Jack Thornton, has already ‘claimed’ the territory that her new lodge is sitting on, and he doesn't plan to leave…

Further complicating matters, Jack makes it clear to Blaze that there are a good many things that go bump in the Alaskan night, and when a pack of werewolves goes rogue and starts killing or turning everyone along the Yentna River, Blaze and Jack find themselves in a fight for survival in this magic-soaked Land of the Midnight Sun.

A Contemporary Werewolves & Shifters romance suitable for mature Teen & Young Adult readers.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Blaze takes a leap of faith and buys herself a fishing lodge in the Alaskan Bush.  She has sunk all her money and she has a plan.  Her handyman, Jack, is not what she expected.  He insults her at every turn and she wants to strangle him.  They are such an odd pair.  He is shorter than she is and unable to read.  She is over six foot and has a business degree.
The paring of the two is extremely interesting.  They are opposites and Jack is special.  He reveals his secret pretty quickly and scares her, close to the beginning of the story.  He is a wereverine and she is immediately immersed into the world that exists in the Alaskan Bush.  I like this idea of shape shifters living in Alaska in secret.  It is an interesting twist.
The villains turn out to be the werewolves led by Amber.  She is definitely crazy and wanting revenge.  Jack is determined to keep Blaze safe.  He proves himself capable with all his weapons and battle skills.  Of course, Blaze is special too, but she has no clue.  Everyone else does but she tends to talk big but is scared of action.  I was disappointed in that part of her character.  However, she came through in the end which was a great battle with enemies.  She and Jack worked together to build and save her dream.

It was a good story full of suspense.  It will be interesting to see what pops up for them next.  It was pretty non-stop in this book.  I am waiting for the dragons to take notice,  I give this a 4 out of 5.
