In Ashlyn's town, a girl is chosen every five years to go on a quest to retrieve the Goddess Statue. The journey is extremely dangerous and nobody has ever returned alive. Ashlyn has been chosen and she must go off on her own to complete what is essentially a suicide mission. Luckily though, she doesn't end up totally alone and a mercenary called Zane ends up joining her.

For me the plot in Shadow Fire was the best part of the book. At first I thought that the quest would take up the majority of the plot - and it does - but there were lots of little surprises along the way which kept me interested. Essentially, the Goddess Statue belonged to the Goddess but when it was stolen and hidden away monsters began to appear. Each year the monsters grow bolder and stronger, and the Goddess Statue is the only way of counteracting this development. There isn't that much focus on the monsters but along the way on the quest, Ashlyn and Zane encounter a huge variety of creatures. Some I've heard of, others were completely new, but I really enjoyed wondering what was going to happen next and this little twists made the book super fun to read :) .

Now for the characters. Ashlyn is a strong young girl and is kind of like Katniss from The Hunger Games in the way that she goes out hunting to provide food and money for her family. Speaking of her family, she has a ton of siblings, and although we only meet them briefly, her relationship with all of them brought a smile to my face. As well as being strong, she's determined and quite capable of taking care of herself. However, there were times when it seemed like although Ashlyn had spent years in the forest - which we're told - she's a bit clumsy; it didn't quite seem to add up at times. But overall I liked her as a character.

***I received a gift copy from the author in exchange for an honest review***

'Shadow Fire' is the first book in a new series from Kimber Leigh Wheaton. It's target audience is YA and I would recommend it to anyone that likes the YA genre.

Every five years a girl aged between 14-18 is chosen to be sent on a dangerous quest to recover the Goddess Statue. So far, none of the Chosen have been successful. Now, the time has come for someone to undertake the quest once again.
17 year old Ashlyn has had the unfortunate luck of being the Chosen. She sets off with her two companions, Zane and Shadow. Another companion, Freya, later joins this little crew.

The Companions: Zane, Shadow & Freya:
Zane is the good looking mercenary that joins Ashlyn to protect her as she undertakes the quest that has been offloaded onto her.
Shadow has been Ashlyn's friend ever since he was a small cub. He's extremely intelligent and understands pretty much everything that's asked of him.
Freya, is, well, you'll meet Freya for yourself when you read the book :D

I quite enjoyed Ashlyn's feisty character but I enjoyed it even more because she wasn't painted as just a Kick Ass Heroine. Her vulnerable side also gets to be seen which, in my opinion, makes her character more believable.

The story is quite a good one and introduces scenarios and characters that both help and hinder Ashlyn and her companions as they make their way to the Breven Ruins. It also has a few little twists that were enjoyable.
I did find the last major fight scene a bit of a disappointment, I was expecting a little more action.

I'd really like to read the rest of this new series to see what else Kimber Leigh Wheaton can bring to the table.
4 Shamrocks with the hopes of reaching 5 Shamrocks with the next book in the series.

Ashlyn - a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.
Zane - a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever.
Delistaire - a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power.
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power of a Goddess.
Shadow Fire - adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal.
As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows, their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power?

Shadow Fire is a really enjoyable and light YA fantasy, full of secrets, action and lots of romance. Very quick paced and addictive but it did slow a bit during the middle of the book. This book has an interesting magic system which is based on the different elements but I wish we could find out more about it.

Ashlyn is nice, brave and easy to connect to as a character, but while she was described as being very self-reliant, most of the time she had to be helped by others especially Zane. Zane is a good, swoon worthy hero as he has a masculine, alpha male exterior but is also caring and protective without being controlling. The romance in this book is really sweet, but it came across as very immature as they kept making out while in inappropriate situations, and while I have no problem with the instant attraction, they fell in love way too quickly.

I really liked this book and am looking forward to the next novel in this universe, Stolen Moon, even though both books stand alone. I would recommend Shadow Fire to fans of romantic YA fantasy books such as You Are Mine by Janeal Falor and Witch Song by Amber Argyle.
