Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in the Dark Crescent Sisterhood series. It stars my favorite sybil of them all. The aggressive, hot tempered, light your shoe laces on fire sybil... Cynda. I love her. This story is about her and Nick, you know Creed's twin brother who is also a Curson.

While Riana and Creed are blissfully happy, Cynda keeps lighting Nick on fire. On the other hand Nick doesn't have a nifty tattoo like his brother to control his Asmodai half, it's just through his own self control. Which ironically Cynda's fire and smoke is threatening. More sybils die, Asmodai keep popping up like a never ending army, and Cynda just might stop flaming long enough to fall inlove.

This book starts out faster and much better then the first book. It is great and I absolutely love how Nick handles Cynda's temper tantrums "stop smoking or you'll give away our position." :) This is a great book and I can't wait for Bound by Light! Definitely a recommend.

I read this book back to back w/ the first book in the series. Compared to the first book, the follow was a disappointment.

I could not like the heroine, Cynda, the Fire Sister. In the first book, she narcs on her sister to the Mother superiors. In this books, when she is in a similar situation, she keeps everything secret. When her sisters find out, Cynda wants them to support her unlike how she supported Riana in the first book. I just found this character distasteful. She appeared to be very immature, constantly letting her powers out of control and burning her clothes the room or other people as a consequence.

Storywise, someone is killing off all the Fire Sisters. So Nick, Creed's twin cop, is guarding her. There is an instant attraction between the two, but the Mother Superios are against any type of union w/ them.

Ovearll, I did not like this story. The heroine was annoying, the hero was underdevoloped. Mostly what I got out of the hero, Nick, was that he was suppose to be cool and in control of all his powers and of Cynda. He didn't appear to have that much of a personality other than not wanting to get his new brother Jacob killed. The love scenes between the two were also very lacking. Plotwise, there were alot more weakness in theis story then the first book. No further details about the Sisterhood history was given; finding a sister of the Water element for the first time in centuries was mentioned in a couple of lines even though the character is one of the main characters; no real history or details about the Lowell brothers was given either.

I would only recommend this book if you wish to continue on the series.

Happy to say that I picked this book up and read it in one day, the book was exciting from the first page one and beyond. Loved the interaction between Nick and Cynda. I also enjoyed the more detail in how the Triad works and the connection deepens between the Triad Sisters and the Lowell Brothers. Someone is out killing Fire Sybils, and Cynda is the target,can Nick save her? The side characters are vey endearing and playing heavily into the story. Please read this series, you will enjoy it. Now eagerly waiting to read Merrilee and Jake,the the third Lowell brother. Really enjoyed this book and the previous one.

Cynda Flynn is a regular fire bug, because it's her choice weapon. Fire flows through Cynda's veins as true as the blood. She is the pestle of her triad, and will do her part in protecting the innocent. She is always prepared for battle. This time she's unprepared, and it's all due to an undercover cop from the NYPD Occult Crime Unit, Nick Lowell. Nick is no ordinary man, in fact, he's half-demon as well, and hotter than any flame Cynda can produce. She doesn't understand her feelings for him, but she's determined to find out what he has over her.

Nick knows how to control his demon half, with a lot of self-control and steel will. He likes to think he's unbreakable, after working with the deadly Legion cult for five years, if the most evil of people can't break him, surely he can't be broken. He learns he's not made of stone, and his soft spot is Cynda Flynn. He's determined to find the evil source that is destroying fire Sybils like Cynda.

Bound by Flame is book two in the Dark Crescent Sisterhood series, and even better than the first installment. I personally loved Cynda's character, especially her power over fire. Reading about a characters emotions can sometimes be a little confusing, but with Cynda, her flames speak for her. When she's angry, you know it, because half the city can go up in flames around you. It might well be the case if she's in a passionate tussle with one Nick Lowell.

Anna Windsor makes a great story, filled with lots of action and just enough romance to keep you interested. I personally had a hard time putting this book down, and would recommend it to all paranormal romance readers. The story of the Sibyl is original, and full of a history of many cultures, all coming together to fight the forces of evil. I honestly can't wait to see how this story progresses in the third installment, Bound by Light, where we will learn the story of Merilee Alexander, the third Sybil of this fantastic triad.
