Summary

The exciting continuation of the top 10 Amazon best seller by USA Today best-selling author, K.F. Breene!

It is a common truth in my life that when it rains, it pours.

The killings that once plagued New Orleans are cropping up again in Seattle. The local office is stumped. I'm called out to lend a fresh set of eyes and my unique magical touch.

It's only when I get there that I realize the Seattle office isn't stumped at all.

They're being silenced by the Mages' Guild, a corrupt magical institution that doesn't want word to get out of what is plaguing the city. Worse, news of my magic might've slipped down to the underworld, hitting the ears of some extremely powerful demons.

What I thought was a routine murder investigation turns into a fight for my life. With the help of Darius, my stalker elder vampire, and my dual-mage sidekicks, I somehow have to dodge the Guild in order to stop one of the most powerful demons I've ever encountered. If I don't? It'll escape back down below with proof of what I really am.

My life hangs in the balance, and, this time, I can't see a way out.

Another Action-Packed Urban Fantasy Story.

Another Action Packed Instalment in This Magical Urban Fantasy Trilogy.

I am already a fan of Ms Breene's writing style and love the complexities of her characters, the pace of her plots and the way she balances the fighting, horror and brutal violence with the humorous sarcasm, promise of love and uplifting hope in her stories.

I really enjoyed Raised in Fire and liked how the mystery and political intrigued kept me guessing, the plot twists had me breathless at times wondering what would happen next - I like it when unexpected things happen and an author can surprise me - and I loved how the relationships between the various characters evolved through this book, although at times, I found the sarcasm bordering on rudeness which irked a wee bit.

Once again, I downloaded the narration by Nicole Poole and was blown away by her performance; the way she read the narrative, the tonal variations she used during the different scenes and the voices she gave the characters. She transported me into the story.

I can't wait to read (& listen to) the final book in this addictive trilogy.

Brilliant

This Is a highly entertaining book. Our hero has the best lines. The magic is spectacular, the story powerful. I love the full description, the constant bickering between the characters. Will the vampire get his way? Read it!!

Excellent story and performance

Enjoyed this trilogy very much. As usual, I couldn't put it down so sadly finished it too quickly :( This set is linked to the others written by BF Breene, and you find connected characters, all very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to more from this author and Nichole Poole is excellent at narrating. Well done!

Raused in Fire

K. F. Breene has written an excellent second book in the series and I can't wait for the last one. We get to know the characters much better with there different struggles, great plot with its twists and turns. Nicole Poole does another wonderfull job of bringing them all to life, great job.

Reagan is bored and that's NEVER a good thing!

This book rocked! This is #2 in the 3 book run of Fire and Ice series. There is swearing. There is death. There are monsters. There is tricks and conspiracies. All those things, but mostly just the last 4 will give you a hint there are vampires as well. There isn't a cliffhanger, but a lead in to the next book. There is some graphic stuff but not horror graphic.

I can't say enough good about this series so far except I will be sad when I get through the last book. Reagan is someone I'd like to hang with and see what trouble she land in next. Her dad is Lucifer. She's supposed to reign in hell. She doesn't want to. She's great at the bounty hunter job she has in the brink and she doesn't want to be noticed by the demons bent on bringing her into her daddy's inner circle. Well, they could also use her to their own ends too. I mean, they are demons, you know.

And then there is the vampire stalker. Oh, he doesn't think he's a stalker. For some reason, even unknown to the elder vampire himself, he is pulled to Reagan like a magnet. Darius doesn't like the feelings she's stirring up in him. He's a vampire for goodness sake. He's not supposed to have feelings, but Reagan is pulling him back to his humanity. It's really a fun journey. Reagan and Darius work so well together, it would be a shame to split them.

This story is exactly as the description claims and it was an adventure full of discovery and death.

Narrator is fantastic but story was flat to me

I really wanted to like this series but I could hardly finish the 2nd book. I wish there was more romance in it but instead it was a lot of Reagan being Reagan. You couldn't even tell if she liked Darius or not because she fought like hell not to. They just didn't seem to fit well together inspite of Darius starting to be sweet and getting a sence of humor. And honestly, I was getting real tired of her constant sass about everything!!! She was a great fighter and stood up for herself but come on, stop with the 24/7 smart a** remarks. It was tiring.

Oooh snap!!!

Regan, Regan, Regan.... whoa doggies!

Y’all about for a magic carpet ride. This story was action packed, intense and a whole lot of crazy all wrapped up in a cozy little ball of fire. Haha.

I love the build up of the relationship Regan has with Callie and Dizzy. It’s a little off but full of respect and love. They don’t say it but it’s there. When Regan gets a job that will take her out of New Orleans, the dual mages tag along... and ya know, so does Darius.

The vampire has it bad. He’s not ashamed to put all of his cards on he table either. It’s a little unnerving and a whole mess of “oh craps” but honestly, the two of them, the crazy more than a human bounty hunter and the master vampire make a team that’s pretty much unstoppable... in the right situations.

There is something a miss around them, trouble is brewing but this time they have no idea it’s coming for them. That could lead to some trouble they may not be ready for... so now... I need more. Onto the next book!

Not as interesting as I'd hoped.

Book 1 was a good start to this story. You get pulled in to the interesting background of Reagan and Darius and I wanted to see how that progressed. While this book wasn't boring, it also didn't get as exciting and in depth with new info as I'd hoped.

The character development didn't really pull me into the lives of any of the characters and the "climax" was just a fight scene. I kept expecting something to happen after that would leave me dying to hear what happens, but nope.

I was going to listen to the last book, just to see how it ended, but the reviews make it sound even more anti-climactic and frustrating in how many things are never answered.

The narrator still did a good job though. :)

Didn't finish it.

We found we didn't like the character.
also, felt it was written for someone 45 years younger than we are.

good book and narration!

if you have listened to other books that Nicole Poole has read, especially the ones by Dannika Dark like the crossbreed series, this book has a very similar feel to it. Worth a listen.
