Firebound (Spellbringers Book Two) by Tricia Drammeh— Book Review Thursday
The Claim between Alisa and Bryce is as strong as ever. Their love and desire for each other is overwhelming. Of course, Bryce’s controlling and jealous behavior may put an end of all of that. Alisa tries to maintain her independence but with the bond of the Claiming Words, she’s finding it harder than she had anticipated.
Seemingly free from Re’Vel’s game, Rachel tries to return to normalcy. Her relationship with Jace seems better than ever. However, her pride and her fear for her brother’s safety leads Rachel down a dark path that will not only damage the bond she has with the Alexanders, but puts everyone-including Alisa- in real danger.
An evil blast from the past is trying to shake the Alexander family, and puts Rachel in his sights. When Alisa finds herself as the target of the demon’s game, Bryce will do whatever it takes to keep the woman he loves safe.
All I’ve been saying since I finished Firebound has been “holy crap.” I mean, seriously. The LONG anticipated sequel to Spellbound has been nothing short of amazing. More drama, more romance, and a deeper view of the characters, Firebound is everything I could have hoped for in this series and more. It seems that when the publisher didn’t move forward after TCW, it really was a blessing. Tricia’s passion and commitment to this series shines through on the pages and I feel as though a publisher would have really taken away from the overall story. These characters are deeper than ever, more human. The situations are reminiscent of Joss Whedon, taking a real scenario (moving too quickly with a boyfriend, cheating on your partner) and wrapping it in a monster covered coating.
I cannot wait for Unbound. I am absolutely dying. This series is a must read.
