"An wonderful book!"
After stumbling, quite by accident, onto the works of Rain Oxford recently, I have been thoroughly impressed by everything I've read thus far. Furious Flames is another great book, in a series of great books, written by an amazing author. I'm looking forward to my next adventure into the imagination of Rain Oxford.
Rain Oxford never disappoints and Furious Flames is another great addition to this saga. As usual, Rain left us on a delicious cliffhanger, but that's what makes her books so awesome!!! She and Todd Menesses are truly a dynamic duo and I can't wait until the next installment! As I always share whenever I finish one of her books and decide to leave a review, they can get a little spooky. LOL But, it's nothing you can't handle if you're not faint of heart. Lol Pick this one up if you're looking for a great listen, especially as Halloween approaches!!!
"Book 3 is even better!"
The narrator is excellent, and really adds to the feel of the story. I've listened to ALL of his narrations of Oxford's books, so far, and he is excellent!
In the epilogue, when Devon starts to question his parentage... OMG!
His voice. He has one of those epic voice over voices that you just want to curl up and wrap around your soul.
I absolutely listened to this in one sitting! That's why I'm still up at 11 o'clock at night!
If you liked the first 2 books in this series, you are going to LOVE this book. So much drama, misdirection, and craziness!!!!
"Story telling Vs writing skill"
I have to split this review in STORY TELLING and WRITING SKILL
For Story telling, this is another great book in the series. There are plot twists and turns that you almost see coming, but still surprises. Strange events in the past makes sense as you and the protagonist learns more about the supernatutal world.
Writing skill: The author doesn't make it easy for the audience to follow the story. He is not consistent in referring to his charterers. Example: Headmaster Logan Hunt are sometimes refered to as Logan, Hunt or Headmaster Hunt. With classmates, teachers, bad-guys and other minor charters, a sutten name drop without clear context makes me unsure of the narrative.
Speaking of context, this is the third book. I had to re-read the second book, to remind me of what the "amulet" was, who "Gail" was, what the issue with Darwin was and so on. There were absolutely no reintroduction or re-presentation, that could have helped me, if I don't read the books back-to-back. Other authors can spend a line reintroducing key elements, why cant Rain Oxford?
Now I am debating if I should buy and read the forth book Insidious Winds: Elemental, Book 4. There is still a lot of plot points to sort out, and it is a complexity is intriguing. If I don't do it now I'll most likely be just as lost as I was when I began this one, as there are no reintroduction. But on the other hand, I am a bit fed up with the protagonists "Intuition" that always makes him do the right thing.
