I loved "Destruction", and now I also fell in love with "Watch Me Burn". And again line of a not YA paranormal kept successfully in this 2nd book too by Bayliis. She is doing it again, by juggles skillfully between the characters and expose us, to many different angles as possible.

In Destruction we learn about, dark magic and the winter wizards, in watch me Burn we introduced to light magic and summer wizards (But also we get some hints into Autumn and Spring).

The Prescotts, are summer wizards family. When their youngest daughter of the goes missing, the Vandergraffs feels unexplained magical compelled to find her. Is it possible that the summer wizards will need David’s help to find their missing young witch? Are the Summer wizards really the “good” guys while the December People are pure evil?

Even tough the family economic situation deteriorate quickly since they started practicing magic, the Vandergraffs kids didn't stop to learn more and more about their powers. The pull to find the missing girl started with an ad that David found on the street after he showed it to his children, strangely they started to feel the pull too. "The image of the missing girl on the screen shined so intensely, he could see her outline burned into the blackness behind his eyelids when he blinked. The girl posed in her volleyball uniform, displaying a radiant, white-toothed smile. She looked about fourteen or fifteen. She had blonde hair and golden skin and a strange radiating quality, as if the pixels in the television gave her an extra glow."

Patrick who finds he has surprisingly powerful abilities, saw visions of the missing girl but got into the Frying Pan in the beginning.

David Vandergraff is the head of a family of Winter witches. He doesn't wish to be, but he is anyway. In this world, where one falls on the magical calendar determines the type of magic one will have. So, if a witch's "date" is near the summer solstice, he (or she) will have summer magic, and be able to wield the power of light and goodness. Witches with a date nearer the winter solstice will have dark magic--which yields destructive powers. Winter and Summer witches are diametrically opposed, and have a serious battle between them. Meanwhile, witches whose dates fall between solstices, Equinox witches, can wield both light and dark magic.

David's family consists of his wife Amanda, sons Jude, Patrick, Xavier and daughters Emmy and Evangeline. Xavier and Evangeline were from a different mother, and they suffered horrific abuse from their dark witch stepfather before David recovered them, nearly destroyed his marriage by revealing his infidelity--all of which happened in the first book.

Now, Jude is long gone--consumed by darkness enough that he raped a fellow witch: his sister's best friend. He's not COMPLETELY gone, however, because Amanda has been healing his darkness, taking it into herself at great cost to her own health. I can relate--a mother's love is a strong and powerful force, much like magic.

David is somehow caught in a compulsion spell, one to bring home a missing summer witch. Julie has been gone two weeks, and David is consumed with finding her--and this brings both Emmy and Patrick into the hunt, involuntarily. Emmy knew Julie from volleyball camp, and hated her long before she understood about the animosity between summer and winter witches. It seems they have a physical reaction to each other.

I enjoyed it until 3/4s through, when the torture became too disturbing…

TRIGGER ALERT: Torture, violence.

WATCH ME BURN: The December People, Book Two, by Sharon Bayliss should probably not be attempted by someone who has not read DESTRUCTION: The December People, Book One first. If you have already read that, and enjoyed it, you will start off with the necessary background, and the motivation to find out what happens next. It begins not long afterwards, after the house + various luxuries have been sold, and the Vandergraff family, minus Jude, has consolidated into renting a modest home, befitting the financial collapse looming at the end of the previous book.

The Winter symbolism of excessive air conditioning, as well as other references to air, kept bludgeoning me before the story had really gotten started, although the author does not use "plot" as a highway directly from here to there, but contrives to have this and that happen, in a more meandering real-life way, like this sentence. The question of whether dark magic messes up the lives of Winter witches, or whether they mess THEMSELVES up, and then blame magic for it, is continued and expanded to explore issues of free-will/fate.

As I read, I asked myself: Why do Winter and Summer witches have such an antipathy, and physical inability to abide each other? If a circle of four, one of each season, is the most powerful way to cast a spell, why would that turn out to be impossible, since Winter and Summer witches couldn't stand to be at the same table? How does a witch's "date" become originally assigned (as opposed to determined by testing)? If seasons run in families, how is it that Patrick is an Autumn witch, in a family that's otherwise Winter?
