Book #3 in the Weird Girls: Flame series
Taran Wird, the loudmouth mistress of flame and lightning,
didn’t want to attend the formal gathering of the supernatural elite. She did so only to help to unite the supreme beings in attendance in one common goal: protecting Taran’s sister, Celia. Celia is pregnant with alpha werewolf Aric Connor’s child, the same child prophesized to save the world from uprising evil. Evil wants this child dead before he is born and, more importantly, before he can grow strong enough to stop it. Taran and her werewolf lover, Gemini, put plans in place to protect Celia. Master Vampire Misha Aleksandr and his clan also swear their allegiance to Celia and vow to keep her from harm. The witches even cast protection spells around the manor to curse anyone with malintent who enters. Nothing was supposed to go wrong, except everything did. Creatures that shouldn’t exist stalk the grounds and invade the premises, and every curse meant to shield the guests turns against them. No one counted on the powerful being who arrived uninvited. But he’s here, manipulating the magic enclosing the estate to work in his favor. As body counts rise and allies become enemies, chances are Celia won’t survive the night. But evil never counted on how hard Taran Wird would fight, even at the expense of her life.

First of all, I would like to thank Cecy Robson, LLC for sending me an ARC of Of Flame and Fury via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. In an extremely lucky coincidence, I actually started reading the Weird Girls series about a week and a half ago, and was about to finish the last book, Of Flame and Fate, when I decided to check to see if there was an ARC for the next book available, and there was. I obviously love the series, as I finished reading the books and the novellas in less than two weeks, so when I requested the title, I was crossing fingers I would get approved.
I'm not ashamed to admit I may have done a mini fan-girl squeal when I got the email approving my request, and the resulting eye roll from my husband.
Let's get to the book! Of Flame and Fury is the ninth book in the Weird Girls series, and is the third book in the Weird Girls: Flame series. It is written from Taran Wird's POV, and is - SOB - the last book of Taran's story. I loved Celia's story, and was weary switching to Taran's, but I loved it! I have no doubt I will love Shayna's and Emme's stories as well. Of Flame and Fury has a much shorter time span covered than previous books. It's not clear, but the whole book is Taran's point-of-view of a multiple days long attack to the Alliance by an unknown, very powerful evil.
Of Flame and Fury is undeniably unique, and original. I have read a few supernatural books in my life, and none of come up with characters quite like Cecy Robson has, or enemies. Especially this one. Let's just say that evil takes a rather weird form this book, and while sometimes the creatures bordered on cheesy, it's actually an element I have grown to like about this series. It adds a touch of humor to a series that could be quite dark at times.
I have read other books, in which authors have attempted to cover a short span of time and write a whole book, and it was disastrous. When I read the description and saw it was going to be covering one attack, I was worried. Cecy Robson did an amazing job making sure that this book was FULL of action the entire time. Whether it was actual fighting, or hilarious moments, and those rare quiet moments Taran has with Gemini, the story never once felt dull.
