When Keegan’s father, the Demon King of Fire, attempted to produce an heir, a surge of light energy interrupted the process. One tiny piece of the newly forming demon broke off. That piece is Keegan. For years, he has attempted to lay low, watching from the shadows while his monstrous brother Aidan, the true Prince of Fire, is groomed for the throne.

Interesting, Entertaining and Original!

Terrific story about Hell, demons, power, and humanity. I really liked this original story about two brothers that are demons from Hell who are sent to Earth to perform a task. The premise was great for a supernatural story and the characters were perfect. Though there is romance for each of the brothers, the story focuses more on their relationship as brothers, the relationship with their father (Adramelech, the King of Fire in Hell), and their task on ea
Sons of Fire of by Tracy Auerbach turned out to be one of the bigger surprises of my 2019 reads. I'm generally not a frequent science-fiction or fantasy reader, but a friend recommended this author. Since the book is geared toward young adult readers, I thought perhaps it'd work for me... and wow, did it ever! I truly enjoyed my first Auerbach read, and now I'll be checking out her earlier works to see what else is out there waiting to be devoured.

The plot is simple. Two brothers. One seemingly

I really wanted to like this one :(

Let me clarify: nothing is wrong with this story! It’s written well and has a compelling plot. Characters that are interesting enough. But.... I just don’t feel like reading something set in a high school setting. I thought this was an adult book, so I had different expectations going into this. I thought it would be about two brothers being sent to earth to complete a series of tasks for Lucifer. And, yeah, that’s basically what’s happening here. But it’s onl

I loved this book! It was original with two awesome demon brothers! It felt refreshing getting two male POVs! The lore was so cool!

It was packed with everything I could want in a book! Emotion, swoon, world building, and flames! Aidan and Keegan will stay in my head for a while! Highly recommend it!

An entertaining tale about brotherhood, power and what it means to be human.

Keegan is the good brother or the shitty demon if you asked their father. Known by all, as the one with a soul, he feels more than anyone in his position should. Despite everything, Keegan loves his brother. Even if his brother seems to have little love or use for him.

Aidan, on the other hand, is the father's ideal son or more accurately the ideal pawn. Driven almost entirely by a hunger for power Aidan spends little t

What a fun, intriguing story!
This story about two demon brothers experiencing humanity and bonding was sweet and interesting. I didn't want to stop reading, I had to know who the borderline soul was! Keegan was a gentle, nice guy and I love that he was always trying to be friends with Aidan, even when he pushed Keegan away. Aidan had the biggest transformation and secrets, his crush on Libby was cute and I liked that he took to being a human so quickly.

The King of Fire, Adramelech, is finally ready to seize control from his master Lucifer. And in this sordid mission of his, he enlists the services of his true son Aidan Fire. But on the day of creation of his son some two hundred years ago in the Demon Realm, Keegan had also taken form. The twin brothers are as different as any two demons out there, one whose darkness dominates him while the other's light. But when Lucifer sets them a task in order to prove their mettle, it will be

I enjoy an easy read with action, a little romance and characters you can find your readerish heart smiling for. Keegan and Aidan bring all of that to the pages of Sons of Fire with a brotherly dynamic that I adored. Their struggles to find themselves and grow as individuals was well written and made me connect with each brother individually. The typical high school hierarchy, stereotypes and boy meets girl are prevalent throughout the novel. In a way I was hoping for more demonic power and chao ...more

I want to thank the parliament house press for the e-ARC of this book.

Keegan and Aidan are two demon brothers who could not be more different. In their creation something went wrong and Keegan received the ability to feel emotions, like humans.. like angels. Whereas Aidan was forced to follow his Father’s orders without thinking, without complaining.. the perfect weapon. One day they mess up with their father’

An enjoyable quick read with a strong, self-contained story. I recommend this book for anyone looking for a nice change of pace between longer series or a good entry point for the urban fantasy genre. I enjoyed the characterization of the central characters, and I thought that both of the brothers had interesting viewpoints that were well developed.

I also enjoyed the unique take on the demon realm within the book. The story uses the dichotomy between the demon realm and the human world to estab

This book is utterly engrossing! Sons of Fire reads like a YA version of Lucifer but with twin demonic brothers, a coming of age story like you've never seen, and a devil of a, well devil.

They do it because they're human; beautifully imperfect. And then they pick themselves up again and keep going.

Adramelech, Demon King of Fire, seeks the means to expand his influence within the underworld, and what better way to harness the limitless power of trapped souls than to design the perfect weapon, an heir. However, The Morningstar has other plans, and through a violent blast of Holy Fire, the Fire King's creation is fractured. The re

I was confused at the beginning especially from the names of the places and the people but that didn't last long.
The story was good. It is 3.5 stars cause it was a bit slow for my taste.I wasn't enjoying some parts but with the second half, I started to love the story because of the characters' growth. I loved the bond between the brothers. It was very well hidden and it was beautiful to see unfold.

*I received this book free for my honest opinion*

This book was..... different. Honestly I'm not really sure how I feel about it. It definitely didn't pull me in like some of the books I've read recently, and took far longer to finish then it should have.

There isnt much action, very little romance, and it's a very clean read. It does get you thinking a little about humanity, and the outcomes of how ones environment can lead a person one way or the other in the battle of good and evil though. Ther

I would like to thank Tracy Auerbach and Xpresso Book Tours for my copy of the ARC. Due to this kind gesture, I have decided to leave an honest review.

When the Demon King of Fire Adramelech decides its finally time to make an heir, what happens when it does not go to plan? When a higher being intervenes and he ends up with twins? One strong and controllable, the other smart but seen as a lesser demon, our Fire King is not best pleased. Can Adramelech carry on with his plans or will one just
We meet two brothers...Keegan and Aidan.
Keegan is the black sheep of the two. He is the one with the good heart and everyone knows it. His father could care less for him however. Aidan on the other hand is daddy's prized son and why? He's just as evil and power hungry as his father....completely heartless as well.
The two have been asked to do a task that they both failed horribly at and are forced to go to the real world and work together, but that becomes a problem. One still has demon tendenc

A debut young adult coming of age fantasy, this reads as an adventure story with a lot of heart. Two sons of a demon are banished to Earth to complete a quest together with everything to gain and everything to lose. The stakes are high in this one, but you can't assume you know who the "good" or the "bad" is in either the twin brothers or the secondary cast. Speaking of the secondary cast, I enjoyed the demons who made "guest appearances" to offer a multi-dimensional view of the brothers' world ...more

Imagine keeping to the shadows for your entire life, watching a powerful demon king groom the heir to his bloodstained and charred throne…who also happens to be your brother. A story of family, royalty, duty, and survival, Sons of Fire by Tracy Auerbach is a thrilling YA adventure read that combines reality and fantasy in unexpected ways.

While the plot’s premise is one we’ve read before, the devil is in the details. Two brothers, one favored (Aidan, the Prince of Fire) and one just trying to sta

Twin brothers Keegan and Aidan couldn't be more different. For one, they aren't human, but that doesn't mean that Keegan doesn't feel things like a human. He's been tasked in life with one goal, control his brother Aidan. Aidan is tasked with growing stronger, consuming souls for one purpose set forth by their father. Until unwatched for mere moments, Aidan consumes too much, and the brothers are cast out on a mission, their only goal is to succeed if they want to live.

This was a weird one. Coming off the back of The Sin Soldiers I was so damn excited but unfortunately this one missed the mark a little.

So ill keep this one short. I loved the premise of it - two demons have been sent to earth to make up for a mistake one of them made. Aidan, heir (kind of) to the kingdom of Hell is made human, while his lesser demon brother with a soul Keegan gets to stay in his demonic form. It started out well with the brothers being on a quest to find and tip a 'borderline s

This book delivers an engaging story about two young demon brothers as promised. I enjoyed experiencing their lives both in Hell and high school. I especially liked how Aidan handled his limitations and negative situations in school. The brothers eventually triumph.

This is a good book for young readers with a single exception. The ending felt false to me. We humans like to think we could, but no one can really defeat the devil on his terms. That’s the whole poin

For the most part, I did like this book. It was interesting to see Keegan and Aidan adapt to human life after a mistake down in Hell. The two brothers definitely saved the book for me, as it was really the only thing that kept me reading. I enjoyed their differing personalities, and seeing them adjusting and then taking a newfound appreciation of their situation was fun. The overall story though, such as the task and then the ending, just didn't do enough for me. It was alright, but it could've ...more
