Weird Girls #9; Flame #3
Paranormal Romance - Urban Fantasy
March 24, 2020
Taran Wird, the loudmouth mistress of flame and lightning, didn’t want to attend the formal gathering of the supernatural elite. She did so only to help to unite the supreme beings in attendance in one common goal: protecting Taran’s sister, Celia.
Celia is pregnant with alpha werewolf Aric Connor’s child, the same child prophesized to save the world from uprising evil. Evil wants this child dead before he is born and, more importantly, before he can grow strong enough to stop it
Taran and her werewolf lover, Gemini, put plans in place to protect Celia. Master Vampire Misha Aleksandr and his clan also swear their allegiance to Celia and vow to keep her from harm. The witches even cast protection spells around the manor to curse anyone with malintent who enters. Nothing was supposed to go wrong, except everything did.
Creatures that shouldn’t exist stalk the grounds and invade the premises, and every curse meant to shield the guests turns against them. No one counted on the powerful being who arrived uninvited. But he’s here, manipulating the magic enclosing the estate to work in his favor.
As body counts rise and allies become enemies, chances are Celia won’t survive the night. But evil never counted on how hard Taran Wird would fight, even at the expense of her life.
Of Flame and Fury is book three in the Flame series and book nine in the Weird Girls series by Cecy Robson.
I’ve had a blast with this world and continue to enjoy each new installment. I would recommend reading in order. The Weird sisters are amazing and unique women.
Of Flame and Fury we conclude Gemini and Taran’s storyline. Yet, this is not the end of the series; because the author hints at the end that there is more to coming.
This story starts off with a bang and continues throughout the whole story. The main focus is protecting Celia and her baby. It’s a fast-paced action-packed story, but it felt a bit too much; to over the top, too much death and destruction, and just all around overkill. I enjoy action packed stories, but this was excessive.
Taran, for all her failings in the magical world, is a powerhouse for trudging through an exhausting evening. I like that we get her and Gemini’s happy every after and a surprise at the end.
Their’s a lot of wonderful and interesting characters, but this time around we don’t get to spend time with them. The battle overshadows this diverse family.
We do get to see that something is going on with Emma and Bren. The few times we see them in the same room it broke my heart. Their issue has been going on for a few books now and I would have liked to know what’s up. I’m hoping the author gives us them next.
Of Flame and Fury was a whirl wind ride and I look forward to the next installment.
