Blurb: Darach Gravenor has the magik of blue Fire. He is alone in his world and he wants to rescue his friend Kian from the horrors of the Other World.
Ceithin Morgan is Cariad. Strong with Ancient magic he teaches Darach that not all children’s fairy stories should be believed. Ceithin has his own reasons for helping Darach and shows Darach that there is magic that he never even knew existed.
They are living on borrowed time. Guardian knows what they are doing and he is coming for Ceithin. Darach and Ceithin have two choices — do they run, or do they make their stand together?
Please note, this book was originally published through Silver Publishing
Review: The second installment in the Fire Trilogy continues the story from Darach and Ceithin’s perspectives. A call to a quest to save both worlds and a love grows between men of two cultures.
The foundations of intrigues are laid and I expect we will find the full mystery and answers to all of the questions in the final book, Eoin’s Destiny. We know that both men have lost their brother to tragic Amber circumstances. Darach’s blood brother, Eoin was consumed by his Amber fire (or was he?) and Ceithin’s younger brother, Trystyn disappeared.
Ceithin is searching for a way to find Kian and Ceithin wants to find Trystyn so they join forces and somewhere along the way they find a love that bonds their magic together into one beautiful violet flame.
Darach with his blue fire, has been so alone and afraid, he tends to take life so seriously. Ceithin with his healing red flame, hides his desperate need for answers about his brother and all his anger behind snark and jokes. Both men are such brats and they argue and prod and drive each other crazy. They are so good for one another. I loved their dynamic as they both fought their irresistible attraction.
We get to spend some time with the Cariad as Darach learns how to use his blue magic. I liked Ceithin’s family and the way that Darach seemed to fit into that special community, much more than all of the stories of his childhood would have led him to believe.
We have a few moments with Kian and Regan which helped foster the connection between the men and their books. They are such a loving couple and an integral part of the whole of the trilogy.
Another fun, sweet and interesting installment in a series that I have been enjoying very much. I’m excited to read the last book and find all the answers to the puzzle and get Eoin’s story.
