This book continues literally seconds after the end of the last book. (For those of you who need a read order: Kiss of Fire, Eyes of Ember, Scorched Treachery then Soul of Flame). Jocelyn has awaken from her nightmare and the small group is in disarray. Jocelyn wants to kill Ryland, Ryland wants to kill Jocelyn, Wyn is dying, Sain is angry at Jocelyn, Thom is angry at the world and Ilyan puts everyone ahead of his own suffering (sigh). What a disaster!
They find themselves trapped and surrounded by the enemy. They must find a way to heal and band together enough to escape from Edmund's army. Jocelyn re-finds her strength with Ilyan by her side, but not without a few hiccups along the way. For all you Ilyan lovers (join my fan club, I'm the president), this book will hit an emotional high AND low leaving your heart racing along with them both. I can't believe a simple gesture of braiding someone's here could make me feel so so... I can't even find a word to describe it!! ... Rebecca, you hit that one solid!
To all the readers that were disappointed after Scorched Treachery because the story had switched to Wyn and Ilyan's view, I hope you understand that the wait was worth it and the importance of reading their stories before this book because it made all the difference.
I cannot WAIT to see how this all ends when Dawn of Ash is released, and most of all I can't wait to see endless great things happen for this author because she has an amazing gift to share with the world.
Would I recommend this book? I already have and will again!
I'm going to start off by saying that I absolutely LOVVEEDDDD how much more of Wyn we got in this book, I mean she's fabulous to begin with, and now she's dealing with so much. Imprisonment, these powers that have been hidden, then losing them, worrying over Talon, watching and wondering what the heck is going on with Ryland, and what Sain is doing.
The plot buildup holy hallucinations, Batman!!! This was like the tidal wave over buildup, so much that you know--you know--something, someone big is coming, but it still evades us.
I understand why some people were a bit peeved, a lot of this book is repeating events that took place in Scorched Treachery, only from other POVs, we see the other side of the coin now, and what was happening while Joclyn was trapped in Cail's mind. While Ilyan is on the other side of the world. What had Edmund Cain and Ryland been up to? So questions are answered. I get it. We all want to move forward, resolution, and normally, I'd be right there with you. But in this case I truly think that we needed this bit of insight, perhaps not as much as we got, it could've been shorter than the about 50% of the book it is right now, but oh well, I had fun reading it and digging into the breadcrumb clues, scrapping together these new bits of character information and shocking revelations!
No Spoilers people. You know me.
And since there were huge stride in character development (especially of one of my faves, mis Wynifred) I am soooo on board with this book! I mean we finally know about Wyn's past! and omg, trauma mamma!! No wonder it plagues her sleep. So many secrets, her own and others'.
*giddily claps hands*
Okay I have to stop talking about Soul of Flame because I now need/want to goo read it.
I suggest you go and read it too!

I really do like the Imdalind series and the overall plot. I think the premise is quite unique with a mixture of elements in fantasy and paranormal stories that works very well. However, Soul of Flame was incredibly disappointing for me.
The first issue I had was that nothing really happened for the majority of the novel. While I was very happy to finally see Joclyn and Ilyan explore their relationship, especially after so many novels where their connection was there but not acted upon, it was actually too much. Honestly, probably about 40% of the book was Joclyn and Ilyan being all romantic towards each other. I love a good romance and connection and I even love that Ilyan makes Joclyn feel stronger and makes her a better person, but the amount of staring into each other eyes got to be too much. It actually got to the point where the awesome and strong Ilyan I once loved is now a bit too sappy and pathetically googly faced for me to even like.
The second issue I had was Joclyn being a stuttering, absolutely ridiculous puddle of goo who was frozen by fear through another 30% of the novel. Seriously, when she wasn’t mixing her magic with Ilyan and feeling so swept up by his love, she was cowering in fear and actually stuttering. I would have to go back and count, but I’m willing to bet a large percentage, likely over half, of her dialogue involves stuttering. Move over, Bella Swan, because Joclyn has got you beat on the whole weak and pathetic cowering female lead. And the worst part was that it was always her being scared, then being all googly with Ilyan, then scared, then googly, then scared.
At like 70% of the book I was just over it. Really? I waited all this time for something to move forward in the plot and I’m stuck with this? No series has been that frustrating for me… even Dance with Dragons in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin was a tad more satisfying with the moving of the plot. It was frustrating because not only was book 3 in the Imdalind series the same timeline as book 2, but book 4 barely moved the plot at all.
The ending of Soul of Flame was wonderful, though. Finally, I got to see Joclyn as the strong and magical being that I knew she was. She was fierce and skilled.
I hate to sound like I didn’t enjoy this book, like I think it was bad, or like I hate the series. I really don’t. I love the story. And I do recommend Soul of Flame to most people. If you’re a romantic sap, you love Ilyan, and you’ve been dying to see them together, then you’ll love Soul of Flame. It is satisfying in that regard. And fortunately, the action started to pick up after about the 70% mark in the book. I enjoyed the last bit and I will definitely continue the series.
