Kristin “KJ” James was born and raised in the Nashville, TN area. Acting has always been a passion of hers. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, KJ pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, and she now records and produces audiobooks on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC.
When she’s not in her booth, you can find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dogs.
Let me start by pointing out my husband hated hearing this story. Want to know why? So, my name is Alyssa and the girl that is killed shared my name. Then her sister’s name is Emily and my best friend that is more like my sister is also named Emily. Talk about coincidence. Now with that being said… I absolutely loved this story!!!
Casi McLean did an amazing job writing Reign of Fire. Little did she know that I would read this and connect on a different level. The characters are portrayed perfectly. Now I will say I had one problem with this story. I absolutely hated that their sexual tension was focused on right in the beginning after the death. Ugh! It just didn’t sit right with me. Otherwise, nothing bad to say about this story. All emotion was very well portrayed throughout. Our lovely narrator, Kristen James, did an amazing job giving each individual character their own voice and personality. I literally watched each scene play out in my mind’s eye.
The production of Reign of Fire was great. The story was told smoothly. All in all, this story drew me in completely. Honestly, I just begged for more information when it was over. The story line is absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true. Ha! I’m not crazy about politics and I felt like I related to these characters so much. I really do need more. Preferably sooner rather than later. I hope everyone falls in love with this book and its characters as much as I did.
