Hello Avid Readers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Raised in Fire by K.F. Breene. Book 2 in her Fire and Ice Trilogy and also book 2 in the whole Demon Days, Vampire Nights World.
Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?
So with that in mind, today, I want to share my thoughts about…
Raised in Fire (Fire and Ice Trilogy #2) by K.F. Breene
The exciting continuation of the Top 10 Amazon Store Bestseller by Wall Street Journal Bestselling author, K.F. Breene!
It is a common truth in my life that when it rains, it pours.
The killings that once plagued New Orleans are cropping up again in Seattle. The local office is stumped. I’m called out to lend a fresh set of eyes, and my unique magical touch.
It’s only when I get there that I realize the Seattle office isn’t stumped at all.
They’re being silenced by the Mages’ Guild, a corrupt magical institution that doesn’t want word to get out of what is plaguing the city. Worse, news of my magic might’ve slipped down to the underworld, hitting the ears of some extremely powerful demons.
What I thought was a routine murder investigation turns into a fight for my life. With the help of Darius, my stalker elder vampire, and my dual-mage side kicks, I somehow have to dodge the Guild in order to stop one of the most powerful demons I’ve ever encountered. If I don’t? It’ll escape back down below with proof of what I really am.
My life hangs in the balance, and this time, I can’t see a way out.
I’m already a fan of Ms Breene’s writing style and love the complexities of her characters, the pace of her plots and the way she balances the fighting, horror and brutal violence with the humorous sarcasm, promise of love and uplifting hope in her stories.
I really enjoyed Raised in Fire and liked how the mystery and political intrigued kept me guessing, the plot twists had me breathless at times wondering what would happen next and I loved how the relationships between the various characters evolved through this book. I like it when unexpected things happen and an author can surprise me.
Once again, I downloaded the narration by Nicole Poole and was blown away by her performance; the way she read the narrative, the tonal variations she used during the different scenes and the voices she gave the characters. She transported me into the story.
I can’t wait to read (& listen to) the final book in this addictive trilogy.
