Kris Young wants nothing more than to be a normal girl. Thrust into a life she didn’t ask for, and faced with a future that she does not want, she sets off an adventure that she hopes will lead to her freedom. With her best friend’s life, the future of the Kala-Skotadi war, and her own soul at stake, failure is not an option.

Old and new allies unite on a quest against the demigods and Kris’s half-sister, Circe, the mastermind behind it all. Together, they fight to sever Kris and Alec from their evil ties once and for all, and rescue Callie from her own doomed fate. But Circe has other plans for them.

When an unexpected loss strikes the group, will Kris lose the will to go on? Or will a need for vengeance drive her to finally succeed?

Find out how the story of Kris, Nathan, Alec, and Callie will end in the epic conclusion to The Ignited Series, where, in the race against time and evil, all bets are off . . . and no one is safe.


Avenging Heart was a true treasure, and I absolutely loved it! I admit, after reading the synopsis I was afraid of what was going to happen and pretty terrified to read it. I had fallen in love with these characters, so of course I didn't want anything bad to happen to them...however, at the same time, I had fallen in love with them, so I just had to know what Dantone had in store. Of course, Dantone completely blew me away!

This installment was packed full of action, emotion, and of course mythology. Also, not only do you get to see different sides to Nathan and Kris, but you also get to know some of the more "background" characters. And, they are pretty great! I was determined to dislike Lillian, but instead found myself liking her more and more.

I am also happy to say that I found myself blissfully satisfied with how this series wrapped up. Dantone did a perfect job! There weren't any unanswered questions and I didn't find myself feeling let down. It was just perfect! Don't get me wrong however, I would be up for getting some more Nathan, Kris, and Alec!

"Either outfit combined with the high black boots Lillian had set on the floor would make me look 'street corner on the wrong side of town' ready."

"And some plan it was. Wild...crazy...maybe even stupid. But necessary."

"My incredibly sexy, hard-nosed man needed help. It was enough to make a girl swoon."

Book Review: Salvaged Soul (Ignited Book 3) by Desni Dantone

Ignited Book 3
Title: Salvaged Soul
Author: Desni Dantone
Series: Ignited #3
Pages: 384
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Life in paradise isn’t exactly what Kris thought it would be. Treated like a prisoner and forced to keep her romance with Nathan hidden, she struggles to adapt to island life with the Kala. Worse, her specialties are coming in faster than she can control, and she fears the Skotadi within her will soon win the battle for her soul. Her only hope is to embrace her Incantation lineage, master the skills she’s supposed to have, and free herself of her destiny. If only she could figure out how to do it…

The ghosts of Nathan’s past still inhabit the island. Adapting to the Kala way of life again is something he will grudgingly accept, as long as they agree to help Kris. But falling back into the Kala system means being a Kala soldier, and when the gods ask for help, he cannot refuse. Sent around the world on a mission, he faces new dangers and stumbles upon a startling discovery that could change everything…

Together, they face their biggest hurdle yet and put their relationship to the ultimate test. When old temptations arise, new enemies emerge, and emotions run high, can their love survive?

Once again, Dantone does not disappoint!! Just as with both Ignited and Sacrificed, I found myself instantly sucked in by Salvaged Soul!

The world that Dantone has created in her Ignited Series is a remarkable one. It is full of mythology, drama, and some amazing scenery. Despite Kris' complaints about how she feels like a prisoner at the Kala homebase, I wouldn't mind being there. It's an island surrounded by beautiful blue water! Which, of course, makes for some pretty great beach scenes 😉. Additionally, if that isn't enough, part of the book takes place in Greece!

To put the cherry on top, this book also alternates between Kris' and Nathan's points of view. I really love finally getting to see what goes on in Nathan's head, However, I wish the author would have gone one step farther and threw in Alec's point of view, because it would have been super entertaining, and not to mention he is one of my favorite characters!

I can't wait to see how this story plays out, although the synopsis for Avenging Heart has me a little nervous about the fate of some of the characters. I'm sure though, that it will be just as fantastic as its predecessors!

Alec grinned. "Honey, I don't need to use my paranormal skills to charm any girl, including you. It's called charisma, and I have it."

"And...you were right. I was wrong. It doesn't happen often, so I'll let you bask in the glory...for now."

"The way I see it, I've been told to go to hell so many times, I figure it's about time for me to go see what all the fuss is about. I'm looking forward to it."
