I have an e-ARC!!! This is not a drill, bookworms!! I have an e-ARC, it’s time to return to the Golden Empire and catch up with our awesome Phoenix Riders! ❤❤

COVER REVEAL! It’s bright, it’s bold, it’s brilliant... I love it! 😍🔥❤🧡
Nicki Pau-Preto has confirmed Crown of Feathers series will be a TRILOGY! Three books of this world, these characters, and I have zero chill over how EXCITED I am.
And now continues the long wait for the sequel that I need like Sev needs Kade... true story 😌

At long last, we have a COVER!! I have been waiting months for this day, and it’s here. It’s finally here! And it’s so beautiful!! The fire! The shadows and highlights! The orange and green that work so amazingly together!!

Honestly, how am I supposed to wait until February 11, 2020 for this?????? And how am I going to choose between CoF and HoF for who gets the glory of being face-out on my shelves?

HOLY CRAP WAS THIS EVER AMAZING! I absolutely love Nick's Worlds and her storytelling. It's rich and vibrant and this world was on I didn't want to leave. Her characters are well written and the plot of this second book was mind blowing! Seriously, this will be a book to watch out for next year it's mind blowing! I can't wait to get my hands on a finished copy!

I was given an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Wow this book was even better than Crown of Feathers! It's unusual for me to like the second book in the series better than the first but I love when it happens. This book is filled with more phoenixes and magical creatures and we get to learn more about the world, it's history, and the magic. I loved all the character developments as well as the developments in the relationships. There are a lot of slow burn romances in this book whi

Holy wow!

Everyone needs to bow down to the greatness that is Nicki Pau Preto. When I read Crown of Feathers earlier this year, I was blown away and fell in love with the characters and the world that Nicki has created. Heart of Flames has completely dazzled me... and I am not someone who uses the word dazzled.

Heart of Flames picks up shortly after the ending of Crown of Feathers and takes off pretty quickly. Everyone is trying to adjust to life after the events of the pre

So Soon! I honestly cannot wait for the next book! This series gives me such nostalgic feels back to the Inheritance Series. its like a cup of warm tea.

Ever since finishing the Crown of Feathers, I have been looking forward to this book every single day! Nicki Pau Preto has a unique writing ability to capture her readers in as soon as they turn the first page. Her world building is gorgeously outlined, and her characters grow in several ways throughout the book. I have no doubt Nicki Pau Preto will exceed these abilities in her second book. I can’t wait to read it!

One of my most anticipated releases!

I can't wait to read more of Veronyka's story and epic phoenixes battles!
If you guys haven't read Crown of Feathers, you can still do it before the sequel comes out <3

This book was so amazing! I'm so glad I was able to get my hands on a digital arc.

Nicki Pau Preto managed to completely avoid the slow middle book pitfall and now I'm so mad I have to wait so long for the 3rd one.

It picks up pretty much exactly where Crown of Feathers left off and proceeds to go on a wild adventure. My palms were actually sweating at one point and a slight prickling sensation in my eyes may have occurred.
Wonderful follow up to Crown of Feathers.

If you know me at all then you know how much I absolutely loved Crown of Feathers earlier this year and how much I adore Nicki Pau Preto. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Heart of Flames and I will forever be grateful to Nicki because of it. Crown of Feathers was so good I didn't know how Nicki could possibly top it but she managed it, 100%. Heart of Flames is SO good.

I've seen some reviews of Crown of Feathers that claim they didn't like Ver

I received an eARC of this book, and it was absolutely incredible! An amazing ride from start to finish, and the perfect follow up to Crown of Feathers. Nicki Pau Preto has done a wonderful job of building her world and her characters. The story is full of magic, action, and even some romance. This is the perfect book for readers who enjoyed Game of Thrones, and I cannot wait to see what is next to come!
