Without Griffin—and apparently a few meddling Gods—to push me along, I’d still be telling fortunes at the circus, lying about my past, ignoring my future, and living as far away from my tyrant mother as humanly possible.
True understanding thuds into place. Hope isn’t just an abstract concept; it’s me. Flesh and blood me. Griffin knew it all along. Probably everyone did. I’m an idea in human form.

Cannot be read as a standalone.
I really enjoyed this series, but Heart of Fire is probably my least favorite out of the three books. I was expecting to see some powerful scenes involving the Beta Team, but the majority of the book was about Cat's insecurities. Then add all the declarations of love by Griffin... to the point where it just didn't seem fitting.
I was more excited to read about the other characters: Carver, Bellanca, and Ianthe. Hopefully they all get their own books soon!
Although I think this book didn't tie everything nicely, the overall series is solid. Amanda Bouchet does a wonderful job creating a world full of heroes and monsters.
