And action-packed it is. Bria is hiding from the Family (whoever they are) by competing in a Fire Elemental competition…and she is a spy. It is a roller coaster of constant action, filled with little bits that made me laugh. Bria is not great at spying, but the Marvell-superhero competitors are even worse at figuring that out. Also, a guy named Shawn keeps popping up to “help” her at first but turns into the ultimate Evil antihero.
There are numerous other characters you will like or hate such as Harper, her brother Percy, her pseudo-boyfriend or helper, Liv, and the Death King himself. The twists near the end I did not expect.
What I found less exciting: for the first 2/3 of the novel, I experienced deja-vue. If you read the previous trilogy featuring Liv first, you will see the same scene from a different person’s viewpoint. Only later in the novel does the plot become completely new. This left me bored at points, even with the action. I would totally recommend this if you start fresh as a new reader, or wait a while between series.
This is an amazingly complex plot. With all the action crammed in, at points I felt the characters rushed to a conclusion I did not see…it was so fast. I felt whiplash. But I completely enjoyed it and would recommend purchasing it.
Bria's character has growing to do, and I look forward to more of her story. I do hope the the future parallel books are not just a different point of view but focus on Bria's side adventures running alongside Liv's from the other series. It would be fine to have tidbits of overlapping storyline for continuity and humor, but Bria can be a strong enough character to carry her own independent storylines as demonstrated in the other 1/3 of the book. Be prepared for the story and action to escalate dramatically in the last bit of the book (the whiplash effect as referenced by another reviewer). This is not uncommon in the author's works for her first books in series and it typically evens out throughout the series. I look forward to the next books to see how Bria grows and learning more about the Spirit mages. Is it just me, or are we learning more about spirit magic in the fire mage character's series than in the spirit mage character's?
I received an ARC from the author and I am leaving my Totally Honest review because I choose too and I loved this book. Happy Reading!
