Love-Hate this book, and can't wait for the next one!
Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2017
I’m beginning to have a love-hate relationship with K.F. Breene’s books. Obviously, I love her books, the writing is solid, and, to my Fiancé’s dismay, I can never seem to put her books down (hello, forgotten housework!). The hate part comes because I feel lost after I read her books. Nothing is good enough for a little while. The worst part is I feel like an addict waiting for their next hit when I’m waiting for her next book to come out. It’s becoming unhealthy I think.
Well, I suppose you want to know what I thought of Raised in Fire. In case it wasn’t already obvious, I finished this book feeling like my world is empty without her characters running amok in my mind’s eye. Honestly, I put off reading this book for a few weeks because of the world-shattering void knew would come when I got to the last page. And here I am. Missing Regean’s next-level crazy in the face of danger. Oh, and let’s not forget about Darius, my newest book boyfriend (seriously, he’s mine!). This second book in the Fire and Ice Trilogy takes Regean on a quest in Seattle, in a battle between discovering what she’s really capable of, and also trying to hide it from the rest of the world. This book becomes a little more dimensional than the first, leaving almost as many questions as answers toward the end. I’m still hung up, trying to sort out how I feel about the ending. Perhaps I’ll have these feelings sorted out before book three is released.
I do wish there was little but more complexity to the plot. Maybe some more twists. For the most part, I felt like I could guess the entire plot line. Don't get me wrong, it was a super enjoyable read, I just feel like K.F. Is capable of messing with her readers a little more, but hasn't taken the risk. I'm also not sure I want to see Regean NOT be the powerful, capable woman who doesn't need a man.
