Book Review: Circle of Fire (Damask Circle #1) by Keri Arthur

  Circle of Fire is Keri Arthur’s first book in the Damask Circle Series. I love the way the book opens. Sometimes I feel the first sentence can be a strong indication of how the book will go.

Sam Kates hooks us right from the beginning. I read each chapter comparing myself to his survivalist’s actions. Would I do that? What would I bring? How would I survive? Could I mentally handle the death of everyone I… Read more »
