Book Review: Born of Fire by Heather McCorkle
July 22, 2018
I read Born of Fire out of curiosity. It’s the prequel to The Secret of Spruce Knoll: A Channeler Novel. It’s the first time I have heard of this series, it’s about druids or channelers, and I’ve only heard of druids from TV shows.
Born of Fire (Channeler 0.5)
by Heather McCorkle
The story of the night Aiden was born has never been told, until now. Fleeing the Hunters, Kevan and Shannon O’Reilly find their way to Spruce Knoll Colorado, assuming they’ll be safe in America. Their unborn son is special, even for a druid, or a channeler as the American’s like to call their kind. But why the Hunters, people who are sworn to keep their kind safe, are after them is a mystery. All they know is that if they don’t outrun them they’ll be killed.
Trouble has followed them to Spruce Knoll and just when it seems it may be too late, they discover the true reason why.
I have no idea who Aidan is but this is the story of how he was born. I have no idea what significance it holds because I haven’t read The Secret of Spruce Knoll. It’s also the first time I read a prequel before reading the first book in the series. I gave it a 3 because I liked it, I am definitely intrigued and will most likely read this series when I get the chance.
The cover is interesting, I wonder if it means something in the series. The writing was good too, it was easy to imagine that I was part of the story, experiencing what the characters are experiencing. I really hope to get a copy of this novel and find time to read it. I’m not purchasing online at the moment because I still have a pile to read.
