Gr’s Summary

Two thousand years before Dez Harkly developed her secret powers, Guardian Astarte was vowed to protect by the binds enslaving her to the Egyptian pharaohs. Discover the prophecy that originated from a very different time, and spans generations to link two very different girls. 

This is the beginning. 

Set against the backdrop of the Battle of Actium, in the city of Alexandria, Star struggles with her guardian duties as her feelings for the newly named pharaoh of Egypt grow deeper. Not only is Caesarion her duty, he’s the son of Cleopatra, and he’s human. All of which makes their love forbidden. 

But when a conspiracy linked to Caesar creeps into Alexandria, Star must choose between helping her fellow Kythan free themselves of their servitude, and protecting her charge—the last pharaoh—while Egypt burns around her. 

New Adult/Mature YA: sexual content, drinking, drugs, violence, language, death, and other mature content intended for readers 17 and older. Astarte's Wrath is a companion novel to Destiny's Fire, but can be read as a standalone novel.


The Way I See It 

This was a highly addictive, and highly entertaining read!! From the very first turn of the page, I didn’t want to stop, all the way through to the end.  I love hearing about Cleopatra, so when she was mentioned, I was floored!  I have yet to read Destiny’s Fire, but my curiosity is highly peeked, and I can’t wait!  Astarte’s Wrath broke my heart in the best way!!  UGH...So Good!!  Ms. Wolfe knows how to weave a story, and this one was seamless.

A-lways and Forever their love will never die.
S-lavery is all they’ve known, and Star has come to accept this.
T-orture being so close, and unable to ever truly have one and other.
A-live.  Once they give in to each other, they can truly live.
R-eality, constantly keeping them apart.  It seems the God’s are cruel.
T-rust, placed in the wrong hands can be deadly, and most painful.
E-nemies, well hidden will be their demise.
S-tar, will always do everything she can to protect her love, her pharaoh binds or no binds...He has her
heart and she his. (That is the deepest bond)

W-rath, overtaking Star, she becomes what everyone knows she’s capable of.
R-estrained, only one can sway her...Will he have enough time?
A-lexandria, a place of vast knowledge will teach a queen what no others know.
T-enacious. Star and Xarion are meant for one and other.
H-ealing...Not something that comes easily, but in time she will find her forever.

What an amazing world Ms. Wolfe has created!  This book has a crazy twist, that just slams you in the face!  It was great though, because it didn’t take anything away from the book, if anything it added to it!  I never felt like there was a lull.  I was 100% immersed!  I loved this book!!  It was great!!

My Fav’s 


Strong and powerful, Star loves with her whole heart. Having been born into servitude has never bothered her. Growing up with a boy who would become the love of her life was a gift from the gods she did not expect. She cares for her friends deeply and will do what ever it takes to be happy and honor her words and vows.


Talk about swoon-worthy!!  Holy Moly!   He is so much fun!  Steeling away to meet Star, and secret looks to assure her of his love!!  *Sigh*  He is soon to be Pharaoh, and he has an amazing heart.  It beats for Astarte, and for her alone.  The bond these two share is absolutely amazing.  I haven’t read about a love like this, in a long time...  Both Xarion and Astarte made my heart sing!!

My Rating

4.0 Scythe, Aether, Sekhmet Feast, Liquid Bliss, Bathtub Confession, Cunning Queen, Golden Asp, Unfaltering Promise filled stars!!  For a great escape, to a young world full of characters, that will keep you entertained, and teach you about love and sacrifice, this book is for you!!
