Title: Fire (The Hand of Kali #1)
Author: T.G. Ayer
Publisher: T.G. Ayer Books
Release Date: July 25th 2013
Source: Received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Normal people sneak out to a party and have fun. Maya Rao ends the evening by incinerating the guy who attacks her.

Nik Lucas, sexy, new in town and totally forbidden, happens to walk in on her. Normal guys would run for the hills. Nik knows a whole lot more than he's telling.

Maya doesn't believe the gods are real, doesn't waste her time with mere mythology. But when gods, demons and hellhound's become the new normal and wielding fire becomes her new skill, she must decide what it is she really believes.

Can Maya accept that normal is something she will never be because it isn't normal to be... the Hand of Kali

My Thoughts

*For the sake of full disclosure, I recently started working as PA to this author*

I cannot tell you how much I have fallen for Maya, Nik and this absolutely gorgeous YA book by T.G. Ayer!

Fire is an intricate story that wraps itself in the wonderfully vibrate world of Hinduism. Its fierce and often brutal gods and goddesses, each with a vested interest in Maya, in the hand of Kali, need her help to keep the balance - for the sake of all mankind.

A vast array of characters from different times, places, upbringings and worlds; they are warm and welcoming, mean and nasty, naive and immature, but all with a purpose, all very easy to relate to, and all another beautifully woven thread in this utterly intriguing tale.

I have fallen in love with this authors ability to create such rich and powerful, beautifully descriptive mystical and mythological stories. T.G. Ayer has created a world full of characters that easily become addictive, that drag you by your heartstrings from one page to the next, demanding your complete and utter attention until you’re finished - and even then - you can’t stop thinking about them!

Full of rich Hindu mythology, Fire is a beautifully written story for young and old to fall in love with. A delightfully different and engrossing 5 star read.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain cross-eyed.
