being attacked, Rex Clark lies fatally injured at the bottom
of a ravine. Heís given up hope of ever saying goodbye to
his lover, Rion Hunter, until the succubus, Anahita,
discovers him. She sets out, in hopes of saving Rexís life,
to find Rion, despite the fact heís never liked her and
resents her parasitic connection Rex. He is beyond
grateful, arriving just in time to rescue his partner and
rush him to a nearby reservation clinic.
Gastineau is startled by the supernatural males that appear
on her doorstep. Due to her background, she is no stranger
to the unusual, the mystical. What is odder is her instant
attraction to both men. Before she has time to understand
her feelings she is swept into their world; a place of light
and darkness, where Sidhe, fallen angels, mortals, and
demons battle it out.
Angels: Burn is dynamic. It delivers as the
intelligent, erotically charged sequel to Bad Angels.
For me, it was exciting to meet new characters and to
reunite with earlier ones. Overall, this second offering is
more low key yet not less intense, since there is a lot of
build-up. Burn delivers jalapeno pepper, high
noon desert sun oven, and nuclear red-hot complex
storytelling without exploding to leave behind a confused
mess. This author is well organized, creative, and
insightful; she knows how to take the story to each level.
Happily, Iím already looking forward to reading and
reviewing the next book, especially from all the loaded
nudges, foreshadowing, and hints that can best be described
as fascinating, well placed teases.
continuation of Rexís and Rionís story is fueled by Noemiís
direct involvement. Sinister adversity bolsters the plot
allowing plenty of room for action, torrid romance, and
bubbling secrets. Angst and conflict keep the narrative
intriguing and another mythical pantheon is introduced. The
best parts about this series are the endless revelations.
After reading this latest installment, I get the feeling
that Belinda McBride is just warming things up, everything
is about to get darker, hotter, and dangerous. This leaves
anyone that hasnít read the first book time to catch up.
This an amazing, fabulous tale of love and lust, good and
evil, trust and betrayal, free will and coercion that will
leave you bursting with lots of question and an overwhelming
need to continue discovering more about Rex, Rion, and
Noemi. If thatís not enough to get you worked up, I can
assure you that the cover more than lives up to whatís
inside. And how often does that happen?
