"Fire burns bright and has a long memory….

Quiet, thoughtful princess Thanh was sent away as a hostage to the powerful faraway country of Ephteria as a child. Now she’s returned to her mother’s imperial court, haunted not only by memories of her first romance, but by worrying magical echoes of a fire that devastated Ephteria’s royal palace.

Thanh’s new role as a diplomat places her once again in the path of her first love, the powerful and magnetic Eldris of Ephteria, who knows exactly what she wants: romance from Thanh and much more from Thanh’s home. Eldris won’t take no for an answer, on either front. But the fire that burned down one palace is tempting Thanh with the possibility of making her own dangerous decisions.

Can Thanh find the freedom to shape her country’s fate—and her own?"


Fireheart Tiger is a standalone fantasy novella by Aliette de Bodard.

Hmm...this wasn't what I expected it to be. I just wanted a solid fantasy story, and what I got was court politics and romantic relationships that were all over the place. There were also some pacing issues as there was too much going on towards the end. I get that it is a short novel, but I felt like I was getting whiplash because of the amount of plot that was being shoved in your face all of a sudden.
