This book was exciting to read. I enjoyed the characters of Nyminia and Rowan. They made quick great friends. I not sure I liked the ending on this book and I know it is only book 1 so maybe that is why. The whole book was not bad and kept me reading to find out what would happen next and what was Nyminia's part in everything. ...more

First and foremost, Tuesday Cross is an incredibly talented writer, and I do mean talented. Second, with this book I found her great sense humor-which had me laughing often (on a few occassions maniacally...*shrug*), an original story line, and creative characters. Third, I loved the detail of the magic and how it was utilized and Dragons! Yay! Can't help but love some dragons ;)! Nyminia is a young woman who has had a rough go at life, and you feel for her struggles-even with the little details ...more

I'm not really into fantasy but I really enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Fast paced and action packed. Now to wait for the next book in the series. ...more

This book was a wild ride where the action never stops. Each chapter, or two, in “Of Flesh and Fire” read like an episode of a supernatural college sitcom. Which makes sense as, I believe, that was how this was originally written—as episodic serials to be consumed like crack riddled popcorn. Like, seriously the action never stops from pretty much the moment we meet Nym. The girl is literally on fire when we meet her, and things spiral out of control from that moment on. Honestly, if you like bin ...more

It's said that everyone in the world believes, to some degree, that they are special. Wouldn't it be ironic then, that the one person who doesn't think she's special, turns out to be the single most important person in the world? For Nyminia, that's what she's just learned - she's the thread, holding everything together. A key. Special.

Going from being an unwanted weirdo orphan, to someone with a huge re

I received this book as a gift and was happy to exchange for my honest opinion and assess its suitability for my niece who wanted a heroine set in a fantasy world. I can’t pass on a book unless it has humour and a good message. I found Tuesday Cross’s book to be exciting and fast-paced, a recipe for holding a teenager’s attention. It was also refreshingly well-written and laugh-out-loud funny. Most of all, Nyminia, is a strong female character who meets the challenges life throws at her head on. ...more

Characters: 5/5
Adventure/Romance: 5/5
Readability: 5/5
Overall Impression: 5/5

What happens when you wake up in a hospital bed after a brutal fire, only to discover that you survived because you possessed a rare power? What if that power made you a target? In Tuesday Cross's breathtaking debut novel, Of Flesh and Fire, Nyminia finds herself asking that exact question. Running from her past, her new circumstances bring her to a life at Rowling-Burroughs Un

When a young girl is discovered, unscathed, in a burnt down orphanage, she is whisked away to a land of magic, where she is to attend University. She soon learns that she is part of an ancient prophecy where her true name, Nyminia originated, and soon falls into an unconventional romance with a two thousand year old vampire veteran, Marcus.

I came to adore Nyminia’s character for she is brave, headstrong, and of high intelligence, all qualities that I admire. I shared in every one of her victorie

This is the first Goodreads giveaway I've received and reviewed, so I'm not really sure what the protocol is.

The thing is, I found this book un-readable. I'll probably never get a free giveaway again, but I have to be honest here. The writing was amateurish and not engaging. It's been a few weeks since I put this book back truly meaning to get back to it until finally admitting to myself that I'm not going to read anymore, and the fact is that when I sat down to write this review I could recall

I actually give this book 4.7 stars.

The cover for Of Flesh and Fire has a little much going on for me, but I do like it. Lots of vibrant colors, and you know what kind of story you’re going to get with a glance. Tuesday Cross has incoorperated lots of good humor into the story, and it’s a fun, campy read.

Even though there are dragons and werewolves and vampires, Tuesday has made this story very fun to read. I think the writing could be a little stronger, but this did not take away from my overa

I received this book from winning a Goodreads giveaway and I can't say how happy I am to have been able to read it!
If I could have, I would have given it 4.5/5 stars instead of 4. It was quite a 5-star book just because I felt there were things in the story that went way too fast. I would have loved a little more content to further understand things.
Other than that, I absolutely LOVED this book and I can't believe it ended! I had such a hard time putting it down, I just wanted the story to keep

There was a disconnect

Somehow I didn’t connect with the emotions of the main characters and felt very little tension in the action scenes. Certainly there was no feelings of deep live or connection- everything was just superficial and skin deep. Meh.

Gosh, I thought I wrote this review a year ago, how embarrassing!
Disclaimer, I saw this in early draft version and made some suggestions on a site called Scribophile where both myself and Tuesday workshopped our novels. And so, it is with great pride that I purchased a paper copy of her book. I was firstly awed by that cover, it's pure beauty, and the contents of the novel itself did not disappoint.
While there are a few typos, these didn't - for me - take away from the immersive and wonderful re
