The writing style for this book is captivating. The words pull you in and transports you into the middle of the plot as though you’re witnessing everything unfold before your very eyes. The story is uniquely different from anything I’ve read, from the character development to the original language referenced throughout. I am beyond excited to continue my journey through “Provoking Fire.” Highly recommended! -Amazon Review

Due to her rare skin, Eyomi roamed only in the night’s shadows. Hidden away in an attic room overflowing with her caretaker’s spoils, the young boardinghouse maid had grown weary in her lonesome life as an orphan. That is until she befriends aAbout wise traveler named Tuhaji, whose gift for storytelling ignites her small world. Her life becomes a world wind when a pride of warriors, known for their supernatural strength, step out of Tuhaji’s stories and onto her path. By the mark of her skin and her attraction to their fearsome leader Hasan, Eyomi is bound to the warriors in ways she never imagined. But on her journey to retrace her mysterious past, a mighty fire groans within. Eyomi must learn to master it or set ablaze everything in her wake.
Provoking Fire is an exhilarating coming of age story, following the footsteps of a boardinghouse maid, from the lawless streets of a drifter’s town, through hostile territories and bountiful forests, all the way to The Royal’s throne. It is not your typical princess warrior story!
I love the exotic feel of this story. Being able to step out of my own mindset and into something completely different is one of the joys of reading. This story does exactly that–it draws you into a completely different world. -Amazon Review
About the Author
Tanisha Wright is from a small town in North Carolina. She received a degree in business administration but has been writing since the early age of 8, where she received her first award for a story recited to her peers. She realized she had a gift for story-telling and a passion for creating extraordinary worlds in fantasy and science-fiction.
Tanisha spent many of her teen and young adult years mentoring young girls and has always had a strong passion for women’s empowerment. She started a blog in 2015 called “Letters to Olivia,” which touched on themes of growth and spirituality, resonating with readers from all walks of life.
In 2015, Tanisha also started her first novel, “Provoking Fire,” which took six years to write. She used the time to perfect her craft and focus on elaborate character and world-building. Tanisha transfused her many triumphs over hardships into the book’s underlying themes and used her life experiences as inspiration.
Family and friends of Tanisha inspired her to publish Provoking Fire one episode at a time on Kindle Vella. They referred to the novel as a “drama series” long before the platform launched. Tanisha loved the characters and spent so much time creating the post-apocalyptic world that she imagined the book as serialized fiction. She knew Kindle Vella would be the perfect platform for the story to evolve!
