I love this series and these guys, so from very happy to read the next in the series. An added bonus was Seth’s mentors and stand in dads Milo and Toby playing a big part in the story. After several cameos from them in previous books, it was great to get to know them ‘on screen.’ I loved their banter, and it’s obvious that they’re very much in love. I liked the way they accepted Evan as part of their family.
One of my favourite things about this author is the crossovers with other series. The phone calls with Simon from the Badlands series made me very happy, as did the references to other characters who have their own series within this world. I also like the sense of family, with everyone looking out for each other, and working together to lend a hand if needed within someone else’s story.
I like that Seth and Evan both have IT jobs that they can do as well as being hunters so they have money coming in. It gives the storyline more of an edge of realism, as they still have to deal with the usual day to day issues that most people do in that regard.
Another touch of realism is Evan and Seth still hoping, yet wondering, if their relationship will work out. They haven’t been together long, despite having been through a lot together, and I thought those doubts made a lot of sense. I also like that these guys always do their research, rather than rush in blindly to do battle. The author has put a lot of thought into the world building and how all the puzzle pieces of the plot fit together, and it shows. I always appreciate that these guys don’t recover instantly from a fight either. Injuries take time to heal as does the head space and emotional trauma that goes with it.
I love the magic system, and how Evan especially is growing in confidence as a hunter, and being able to work rote magic. Having the ghosts help out is a really cool idea!
I liked the supporting cast in this story. Although they were out of their depth, they rallied around to do what they could in order to keep their own safe. I hope we haven’t seen the last of Scott, Steve, and Kyle.
The final showdown is edge-of-seat turning page reading. I found it a very satisfying read, and wonderfully action packed. I liked that it was a group effort, with everyone playing their part.
I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series, especially as they’ll be heading to Charleston where Cassidy, Teag, and Sorren from Deadly Curosities are.
I’d recommend this book to readers who enjoy urban fantasy/paranormal stories with likeable well-developed characters, great banter, fabulous world building, and a plot that keeps you turning pages.
Seth and Evan’s relationship seems more solid than ever, and even with that we still get more relationship development in this book (I love that). They’re just as hot as well…maybe even getting hotter together (you’ll see what I mean ;-) ). Even if a bit of a wrench is thrown in at one point…
Though the core legend on which this series is based and the resulting methods of fighting the disciples seem to remain constant, you’ll find some interesting new places, supernatural creatures, and objects to capture your attention (you can be absolutely sure on my next trip to North Carolina I’ll be checking out the Road to Nowhere since it’s an actual place with an intriguing history!). The paranormal aspects of the story, the angst brought up thanks to someone from Seth’s past, and the fight against another disciple had me reading this story through in a single sitting.
Flame and Ash is another excellent addition to this series, and I’ll be here waiting for Seth and Evan’s next adventure. This book was a 4.5-star read for me, and I know fans of the series will definitely enjoy it. This is the third book in the series, and you really do need to read these books in order to get the full effect. There are also mentions of characters from the author’s other series, though you don’t need to have read those to enjoy this one. This story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
