This is the second time reading Awakening the Fire. It really is amazing how much you don't pick up the first time you read a book, and it's so great how much more you notice the next time you read it. The book starts off with an intense and intriguing scene with Ari out on patrol as the Guardian of Olde Town.
Ally creates well rounded and likable characters. There is some room for development but good grounding was formed in this book.
Ari - Ari is feisty and you can connect with her easily. I find it amazing that she survives on so little sleep! She is a great heroine - she holds her own ground and doesn't swoon and fall over when she meets the hero of the book. I was very intrigued by her powers that are developing, and are yet to develop.
Andreas - Andreas is smooth and charming. Even in the book he doesn't fit the stereotype of your typical vampire. He plays a low key role for the first half of the book and a much bigger role in second half. He is an intriguing and interesting character. I liked this character and am eager to see how he develops further in the series.
Steffan - Steffan is your fun, friendly, fun to be around, nice guy/werewolf. He was my favourite character in the book. If Ari doesn't end up with Andreas, I hope she gives it a shot with Steffan!
Plot, Pace & Writing Style 4/5
You definitely ease into the story easily. Ally has a great easy writing style - the pace is great, the story has a very nice flow and the story has good world building.
Cover talk 3/5 - I like the cover - It's got a nice paranormal feel to it and I love the purple flames!
Final Thoughts: I will definitely continue with this series and have high hopes for it.
