Book Review: Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble by HP Mallory


When I first got this book (I bought the kindle version), I thought it was a YA fantasy book... I was wrong, it was definitely more chick lit meets fantasy than for very young adults. It's got a smattering of rather sexy scenes in it and quite a few swear words... not that it matters to me of course. I'm a big girl, I can handle it ; )
The book was far better than I thought it would be. In fact, it was excellent. Beautifully written, the story flowed particularly well and the characters were just so cool. I did think it was amusing that almost all of the men in the book were mightily sexy, all smouldering good looks and a tad on the horny (!) side though. But I'm assuming that it was written like that on purpose, a bit tongue in cheek, if you get my drift?
The story follows Jolie Wilkins, a medium who discovers there is much more to her talent than originally meets the eye. In comes Rand, a gorgeous hunk of a man who isn't actually a man, but a warlock. You can probably imagine the kind of things they get up to, and you'd be almost all right. Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble is a must-read. I would recommend it to everyone old enough to be reading this kind of thing!
5 Stars


  1. I read this a few months ago and enjoyed it very much. Great book with some humor and flirty fun.

  2. Will you be reading the sequel, Autumn? I know I'd like to just because it's so much fun!

  3. I read Toil and was equally as enjoyable. A friend of mine was reading the series at the same time and she went on to read How to Kill a Warlock. She said it too was a cute read, though fell a little flat in comparison to the other two. I definitely enjoy the humor in these books, so I would recommend Toil and Trouble for sure.
