Reviews for Metamorphosis (Worlds of Fire Series)
Metamorphosis: Worlds of Fire by Deborah A. Bailey is book two of the series, but is readable as a stand-alone.
The author has set up a fantastic duo in Asira and Jaydon. She’s from a powerful family of alchemists and he is a member of the Gargoyle shifters and an expert on transmutation.
When a conspiracy arises, they must work together to save the sacred manuscripts. However, the heat between them rises the longer they are together.
There are many different creatures and characters in this story. The author does a good job of defining each character and species. The world-building process is handled well without info dumps, making the story easy and fast to read.
I enjoyed the differences between the Floating World and Jaydon’s Granjai. The author’s descriptive prose brings both worlds vividly to life.
I don’t want to give anything away about the storyline. It’s best experienced without bias, but I think you’ll enjoy it.
The book is perfect for all lovers of romantic fantasy, shifters, and slow-heat between characters.

For me, fantasy is about the imagination, about the creation of wonderful new worlds. Deborah A. Bailey has created a fascinating world, with the Aurum, the floating world, portals, shifters and all the characters. The two main characters, Asira, from a powerful Alchemist family and Jaydon, a Gargoyle shifter, magister and her mentor, quickly pull us into the story.
Treachery by members of the Aurum affect Asira and she must face challenges, not only from others, but also from herself and what she truly wants.
Secrets have plagued the floating city and it is interesting to see how Asira and Jaydonface these challenges and are drawn to each other.
I highly recommend this fantasy by Deborah A. Bailey – a novel with a touch of romance, intrigue and a big dose of imaginative world-building.
