My magic isn’t just a curse – it’s an addiction. I crave it the way some people crave chocolate. But, chocolate doesn’t kill – my magic does.

I’m Raven Cursed. When I borrow magic from someone, they die. That’s always been the case—until I met my client, the devilishly handsome and enigmatic Mephisto. He has his own brand of unique magic and a mysterious past he

Maybe 3.9999999. I enjoyed this a lot, but something that I almost can't put my finger on made this just a teeny bit short of a 4 star read. It did however, remind me of how much I love Urban Fantasy.

This book is interesting, and there's a lot to be said for integrating these days. It's set in a paranormal world, but one that is quite complex, to the point where we are still as much in the dark as Erin. I sort of wanted a bit more in terms of answers, but I appreciated the world buil

UF is my go-to genre and I can honestly say I have never come across anything like Fireborn. For somebody so dangerous, Erin is incredibly endearing and it's probably because she's perhaps one of the most relatable and lifelike characters I've encountered to date. She doesn't really care about the rules, she just respects them because they serve as contingency. She does care for the people in her life a great deal and most of what she does is for them, even tho they barely understand and accept ...more

Loved it!!

This was not what I was expecting!! Filled with lots of snark, action, and just a touch of romance. Fireborne is an excellent first look into the Raven Cursed series and I absolutely have to have more.

Interesting word build - I'm curious to see where this story will go. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that this doesn't turn into a RH series because I really dislike those.

Borrowed magic

This book's beginning was exactly the free novella that was given out. Not listed as sample chapters, it was re reading all of it in this book. I hated it. Don't give me sample chapters and call it a novella. That said, I really like the book. The mystery, the magic, side characters. The little bam of a reveal at the end. I was very entertained in spite of the rehash.

An entertaining adventure begins

Erin is Raven Cursed. She craves magic like an addict and because of a terrible crime in her past, is treated with aversion by most. In this world of magic and mayhem Erin must find a way to control her need for magic before she commits an unspeakable act.
In this story with meet sophisticated vampires, a arrogant wolf shifter with attitude and the mysterious Mephisto. He is an enigma to all and no one knows what he quite is, only that he has unlimited power. E

Fireborne exceeded any expectations I thought I had. It was full of snark, humor, and so many twists that made for a fantastic read! I've never been so curious over a character before and the main curiosity of this book is by far Mephisto. All the things that's revealed of him pales in comparison to all things that are still an unknown. And the mystery of the Raven and Raven Cursed is another curiosity that had me trying to read faster to see if there was going to be more crumbs given...and the ...more

Love the banter and complex relationship between Erin and Madison.

I want Benton The door dude's job (just love it)... This book is truly amazing and I am again deeply impressed by McKenzie Hunter and this book more than exceeded my expectations.

I really love Mephisto his character is fascinating and I love the mystery surrounding the Raven Cursed. This book is filled with complex and interesting characters and the storyline is mysterious and full of tension.

I know, I waited so long for another McKenzie book, and I knew that it was going to be worth the wait. For this new series we got a glimpse of where the story was going to be headed in the Novella, A deaths Kiss, but this is definitely better than I expected. When I thought I knew what was going to happen, Bam! That’s totally not what happened. Once again McKenzie left me wanting more, and begging her to hurry up and give me the next book. Because that cliff hanger!!!!!
Nov 01, 2019 rated it it was amazing
I’ve read everything else McKenzie Hunter has written and this is by far my favourite yet. What a way to start the new series.
Erin is quite possibly the most relatable of all her female lead characters, with her unusual magical abilities, her struggles in trying to live up to expectations in controlling it and enough flaws to make her real and likeable. Mephisto reveals enough of himself to intrigue and yet hides enough to leave you wondering just who and what he really is. A wonderfully d

A refreshing twist on magic

I love this magic thief Raven Cursed story! Following Erin and her broken life feels like getting pulled into an intervention. I love the mystery and intrigue around the sexy M. I can feel Erin's curiosity, desire, and pull to figure out his magic. Then there's her other alpha man, Asher. Who's she gonna pick? And boom goes the cliffhanger. Erin needs some love or more alcohol.

A great start to this new series

I loved reading this, Erin's character is an enigma, I am not sure how I feel about her as yet. I love Mephisto so far as a love interest for Erin, but the love hate relationship with Asher is funny and I love the dynamics between them. So far this book is a 5 star for me, I am ready to find out more about the these characters, I can't wait for the next book.

What an awesome ride

This book has great characters, a good story that promises much more to come, great pace, action, humor, and definitely some sexual tension. There are definitely plenty of moments that grip your heart and truly pull you in as if you are the main character, or as if you want to be her BFF. I can’t wait to see what’s next. There is so much mystery around these characters, I absolutely NEED to know more. Love it!

A real page turner that will keep you up all night! If you like supernatural (Magick, vampires, and Shifters) this is definitely the book for you. If you have read Sky Brooks and Legacy Series and loved it, then you will not be disappointed! Amazing characters and story line as always! McKenzie's books always pull me into the beautiful worlds she creates and keeps me there till the end!

I Absolutely love this new series. It’s full of amazing characters and the gifts they posses are so unique, it so refreshing to read something new and different. The MC is kick ass and funny, and the other characters are just as enthralling, the whole book is fast pasted and action packed. I can’t recommend it enough.

I’ve read previous books by this author & loved them. She has a fab way of drawing you in & making you want to be part of the magical world shes created. Firebourne is an amazing read that draws you in & leaves you wanting more. The characters are intriguing & the story is full of action & suspense, ready to preorder book 2 🥰

Love it

I have not read a book by McKenzie Hunter that I have not love. They take me straight into the world that she is writing in. I cannot wait for books to come out in this series!
This book frustrated me. I was interested in the premise, but the main character's contradictory opinions on how to handle her own magic and the lack of any real plot progression in the story just made reading the book like pulling teeth. Not for me.

I can't tell you how much I loved this book! This first book was amazing. I love how kickass Erin is, she's my new favorite heroine. This story had me not wanting to put the book down. I cant wait for more! An amazingly written book from an amazing author.

This book was my first by McKenzie and I love it.
Erin was a breath of fresh air. She's sassy, strong minded... She didn't swoon all over for the guy and I loved that there was no sex... The slow burn is insane but I think I see a love triangle forming in the horizon... Can't wait for book 2
