This novel was an emotional roller-coaster that keeps you on edge the entire time. Once Kinrade begins her story she doesn’t let you go until it is over.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
At the beginning of this novel Kinrade gives just enough background info to jog your memory as to what happened in the first novel in the series, without boring you with long recaps. She picks up the story right from the get-go and keeps you captivated. If her solid storyline doesn’t draw you in, Kinrade’s inviting yet exciting writing style is sure to do it.
I love the world and the characters that Kinrade creates. It is seamlessly and flawlessly put together. Kinrade leaves nothing to chance in her novels. Each and every aspect is plotted to create a unified whole, leading the readers to the ending, or in this case, the ending of one crisis that leads us towards the next.
Not only does Kinrade continue to develop the main characters from the first novel, making them more and more lifelike but she also has some of the supporting characters step up and take a bigger role in the story. We also get to know some entirely new characters in this novel who, although possibly misunderstood, are following what they believe to be right.
Kinrade also continues to switch perspectives from character to character. It really helps to draw you into the novel. It also helps you understand the characters and their actions. She does it so flawlessly that it really adds to the story rather than causing confusion or detracting from it. I love how Sam is written in the 1st person and Drake in the 3rd; it fits their characters’ personalities perfectly.
As a whole, this was a brilliant novel that picks you up and whips you around. Kinrade fills in many holes left from the first novel while leading you into the 3rd.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review

Returning with Sam and Drake from the first book and adding in her friends left behind the walls at the center: the twists and turns that this installment take have increased the ante for all the characters. As the story progresses, the kids are growing into their powers and developing abilities that are far more than anyone expected.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Continuing nicely where the first book ended, as the kids age, their actions and dilemmas are also more adult in nature. The involvement of the differences about the moral use of power that flares up with Drake and Sam increases the already tense feel to the book, as they are still running and hiding from those who want to control them: and they are concerned for friends left behind.
Add to the “good and bad” there are several elements of gray from the less noble of the characters, when no one act is ever strictly good or wholly bad once you see the motivations. It is a book that I found fractionally better than the first, the emotional investment in the characters was already established in book one, and strengthened with this twisty story.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review for Innovative Online Book tours. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Forbidden Fire Book Two Warning: I will do my best to not spoil

Warning: I will do my best to not spoil the first book, but it may contain spoilers despite my efforts.
Sam and Drake are on the run this time with one thing on their mind protecting what is most important to them. We also see Lucy and Luke as they are left behind at the “Rent-a-Kid” center determined to get to the truth of the center and hopefully find a way as well.
Not as great as the first book but it still has its own twists and turns along the way that makes it a fun read. This time along with Drake and Sam we are able to really get to know Luke and Lucy, Sam’s best friends, and this allows us to continually know what is taking place with all the other kids who are being held at the rent-a-kid center. In doing this the author brings to life many other characters who take part in several of the action scenes along the way. This is definitely and interesting series, the para-powers continue to fascinate me from Luke who can walk through walls to Mary the seductress each one has an attention-grabbing story to tell. I cannot wait to continue on and see where Kimberly Kinrade takes us next.
I was sent a free copy of this book for an honest review.
