Reviews for Hathor Legacy: Burn
“It’s rare for Guardians to be called for fire cases but Nadira is called in by Lt. Tamara Lin to investigate a fire at a Service House that she finds suspicious. Elder Dakar has requested to see Nadira. He has plans for Nadira and her abilities, and a big future for her. Elder Dakar’s assistant seems to know a few things about Elder Dakar and keeps presenting himself to Nadira. Jonathan has been staying on Hathor and wants to open a club here. He finds himself pulled into the Corporate world present on Hathor. Nadira and Jonathan learn that the connection she created between them is not liked by those higher up the Guardian chain. But when things get personal and the fires persist, almost harming Nadira. Jonathan and Nadira will have to make some hard decisions as Nadira tries to solve what is going on in the Guardian hierarchy.
Kristin, once again, displays why she is one of my favorite voices in narrating stories. She becomes the story and the characters. She starts with emotion in her voice for the opening scene and throughout the book. She easily performs accents to differentiate the woman and men speaking. Each has their own personality in voice, attitude, tone, and presentation. By doing this I can see the character as Kristin’s presentation is paired with Deborah’s words. This makes it so easy to dive into a new audio book and not get lost.
We get to see Nadira’s abilities in action right off the bat. I like this as I’m one that’s into abilities and powers. And there is no delay in getting into the story here.
There is so much more to the Corporate and Guardians in Nova City! Very interesting to see the inner workings of the Guardians and their work relationship with Corporate. The history come out in more detail here as well. Very interesting and I love the growth of it all here.
There is romance present, but it’s not the center of the story. It’s a lovely addition to the story and shows the beautiful connection our couple has. Even though I worry of Nadira and Jonathan’s relationship, Nadira and Jonathan are adamant they are together. I’m so glad for this unwavering believe in them. There is so much going on in the world around them that it is nice to see a solid feel between them. They trust in each other and always give each other the open to make their own decision on if they stay or not, but that they both love each other is always there and we know the choice if it needs to be made.
I figured I knew who was behind the troubles in the city, but I wasn’t exactly sure why. I loved the suspense and worry we felt in the circumstances Nadira, and Jonathan, found themselves in. The story built on itself and all the knowledge we were learning as we went. The systems here are so much larger than imagined, and things are going to change.
This book ranks among the top of the top. For the story that’s written and the depth of the world with a touch of romance, belief in others, action, worry, and the narration. I could go on and on about the written story along with narration here. But I’ll stop before I bore you with all the gushing.
But I’ll leave you with one last loving sharing paragraph.
I can’t express how much I enjoyed this story! The plot and events that take place in this story. The relationship with Nadira and Jonathan. I JUST LOVED IT ALL!”

“I have yet to read the first book, Hathor Legacy: Outcast. It won’t take me long to purchase it to fill in the blanks I have about how this series begins.
Hathor Legacy: Burn moves relatively quickly into a mystery as Nadira begins to investigate the apparent arsons at “Service Houses” which kills the house’s inhabitants and leads Nadira to questioning who, exactly, the inhabitants of these houses are.
It surprised me at how quickly I was involved in the story and waiting to see what would happen next. The book is considered a SciFi Romance, it is also very much a Romantic Mystery / Thriller in my opinion.
Deborah A. Bailey has begun the fulfillment of a lifelong dream by writing and publishing the Hathor Legacy: Outcast and, now Hathor Legacy: Burn, and I hope to see many more books from Ms. Bailey in the future. Her writing is wonderful to loose one’s self in on a rainy / snowy night in early September.
I highly recommend Hathor Legacy: Burn.”

“When beginning Hathor Legacy: Burn I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but I was especially concerned that it wouldn’t make any sense to me as I did not read the first book Hathor Legacy: Outcast but I didn’t have any problem keeping up with the story. I don’t feel as if I missed anything from the first book at all. Although I do wonder if the first book gave any info about Nadira, her family, her mentor and more about her training as well as how Nadira and Jon met and about their connection and would like to read the first book as well.
I would also love reading more about Nadira and her new life in more books. I loved the world that makes up Hathor. I loved their houses, their different ways of transportation. I you have not read the Hathor Legacy’s then I highly recommend that you do and real soon. The world building is out of this world (pun not intended).” -the Avid Reader
“I’ve been a fan of this series for a while now. I am generally not into books from the fantasy or sci-fi genres, but this author seems to have that unique ability to take paranormal plots and characters and make them totally relateable. This book didn’t disappoint me. Nadira is an enthralling main character–I imagine myself to be like her on my very best days, perhaps without the supernatural powers that she has. She is exactly the kind of heroine I love to read about. Her likeability (and that of her boyfriend’s) remains constant through a plot that contains many exciting and unpredictable twists. I enjoyed this book so much and I would recommend it to anyone, whether a fan of the genre or not!” – Anne
“After reading the first book in this series a few months ago, I couldn’t wait to read the next installment. It didn’t disappoint and this is definitely a prime example of exactly why I love series. The characters and the plot get better and better in ways that a stand alone just can’t pull off.
In Hathor Legacy: Burn you are sucked back into the world of Hathor and it’s like you never left. Things get even more complex for Nadia and Jonathan as a mystery unfolds that could put the entire planet in danger. Will Nadia be able to put all the pieces together before it’s too late?
Highly recommend and I will be impatiently waiting the next book in the series. I do suggest you start with the first book though.” – Momto4BookLover
“In January I happened to be recommended Hathor Legacy: Outcast and absolutely loved it… from the imaginative paranormal/sci-fi elements to the charming romance between Nadira and Jonathan. So when I found out Deborah A. Bailey had released a new novel in the series I eagerly dived in and wasn’t disappointed. The author draws readers back into the world of Hathor as Nadira’s charge as a Guardian becomes even more muddled as hidden secrets and far reaching plots endanger not only her, but all of Hathor and her boyfriend Jonathan as well.
The well-written novel is a wonderful mix of science fiction, emotional drama, vivid action/adventure and suspenseful mystery. It’s fast-paced, engaging, sharply written and features a main character that is authentic; Nadira is strong, fierce, capable, charming and wonderfully real as a heroine. Ms. Bailey does a fantastic job of sucking readers in with boundless storytelling and an imaginative plot arc that feels like an epic space opera in the making. I’ll definitely be eagerly waiting for the next book in the series, because Nadira’s story is decidedly engaging and entertaining.” – L. Collins
