Fallen Fire #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal
Sorrow. Heartbreak. Rage.
What a deadly combination.
I’m falling apart, but I need to fight. I need to be strong for Charlie. He is my anchor to sanity, a man I can’t get out of my head. With each passing hour, I see him as more than a friend.
I’m gaining infamy in Angelica City by the day. Zayn Valentine: Public Enemy #1. So many want me dead. The dial has been cranked up to boiling point. I just have to hold it together to stop the darkness taking over.
But the darkness is deliciously tempting. I’m walking a fine line between my torn selves, dangerously close to embracing a side of me the world thought was lost to an ancient past.
I need to fight it…
Easier said than done!
I love this series, and needed to find out what happens next, especially with the way the last book ended! This one introduces another player, and perspective, while upping the tension. I love Zayn and Charlie, and their world, and am already hanging out for the final book.
I liked how Zayn is having major problems holding onto his persona, as more and more of Uriel seeps through. I thought the author did a great job differentiating between the two, and I love how Charlie is Zayn’s rock, and how he wants to stay alive for him. Those two need to stop fooling themselves they’re not in love. Everyone else can see it! I liked the revelation about Charlie’s dad, and the twist about Charlie too. I want to see how that pans out. He and Zayn need to save themselves and each other ASAP.
I loved the clever plot twist with Scott, and the complication of Raph. Nicely done. Someone’s going to come out of this even more badly hurt, and I really want it to be Lucifer. The demon minions are nasty, especially their ability to control people. Damien’s name is not so nicely apt.
The world building is fabulously detailed, and well thought out. I love the twists re the story of Lucifer, Lilith, and the angels. The story moves at a decent pace, with the feeling of running out of time coming across loud and clear. Be warned it does end with a decent cliffhanger, and I need to find out how this very enjoyable series finishes.
5 out of 5 stars.
