The BookViral Review:
A fast-paced, stylized and hugely readable Fantasy Romance novel that quickly cranks up a full head of steam, Holding Out For A Hero delivers a compelling sense of intrigue and steamy adventure with Kessler careful not to sacrifice pace for superfluous detail.
The best books in the genre are character-driven. You can have an original hero and a superb plot, but if the reader doesn’t care for the protagonist, they won’t read the book. Most importantly they have to be interesting but not clichéd and this is something Kessler has definitely got right.
With seductive prose, she leads the reader through a taut narrative that is refreshingly devoid of the usual genre clichés. The actions sequences are vivid and full of twists with well-developed supporting characters but where Kessler’s novel really hits its stride is in the burgeoning relationship between Macy and Narcifer.
In the main, this is because Kessler takes time to emotionally build her characters. They grab our attention from the first page and hold our attention as the plot thickens and the suspense continues to mount. The chemistry feels right and the steamy elements are perfectly pitched!
With everything a reader could want from a Fantasy Romance Holding Out For A Hero proves a riveting good from the very start and is strongly recommended.
