Review--Of Flame and Fury by Cecy Robson

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.

In Cecy Robson’s Of Flame and Fury we bring an end to Taran’s chapter, yet the story is far from over. Seriously, this has been one of my favorite series since it started and I am so glade Cecy is continuing this story arc through Celia’s sisters. It’s an intense and heart-pounding thrill ride and I cannot wait to read more!

It all starts out so simple. Gather together and figure out a way to protect Celia and her unborn baby from the evil that wants to kill them. Except just as the gathering is getting underway, the you-know-what hits the fan! Genevieve’s mansion, where they were all gathering, is attacked by magic and all hell breaks loose. Everyone is being attacked by monstrous creatures that are not quite one thing and they are nearly impossible to kill.

Things got crazy insanely fast in this one. It was almost hard to keep up, especially when it all starts out with twisted hallways and disappearing guests and wondering if said guests are actually themselves. It was one wild ride and with Taran at the helm, you know you’re in for a riot!

Taran is determined to keep her sister, Celia and her niece or nephew safe. Celia’s child is prophesied to save the supernatural world and possibly the human world too. But when all the sickening monsters are gunning for her, Taran isn’t going to be able to pull any punches, not that she ever does anyway.

As with the previous book, to my muddy recollection, we get hints of something happening between Emme and Bren, which once that started going I was dying to know more! Luckily, it’s been confirmed, Emme is up next! Not only do we get to learn more about the bond that’s between them, but there’s a deeper history between Emme and Bren that stretches way back and I am positively giddy to know more! Being the younger sister myself, I felt like I could relate to Emme and her position from time to time.

Back onto Taran’s story, her journey towards growth and developing her magic continues. Though her first and foremost thought is to always protect her sisters. There were times of happiness and romance between her and Gemini, but I felt like this time, those times were few and farther between than they were in the past novels, but for good reason. I mean, there’s hardly ever a quiet moment in this one what with all the running for their lives and trying to defeat hordes of evil.

The ending was superb! Since we know the world series is continuing on, this one puts us at a nice pause and fills it up with shocking developments. Taran has reached a sort of peaceful happy moment with Gemini in this one, but there’s still bound to be danger and chaos for this family. Now it will be the youngest Wird sister’s turn to be the hero of her own story and I am looking forward to it!

Of Flame and Fury was one wild ride filled with creatures of every nightmare ever. It’s a read filled with spunk and sass that’s 100% Taran and continues to show the unbreakable bond of sisters and family.

Overall Rating 4/5 stars
