Overview

Burning down the house...

Things are not going well at the offices of Private Eye. Jinx is having demon problems, the city is overrun with pyromaniacal imps, and Ivy's wisp powers are burning out of control, attracting the attention of both the Seelie and Unseelie courts.

Along came a faerie queen... It's the worst possible time for the Green Lady to call in a favor, but Ivy's bound by her deal with the glaistig. Too bad there's no wiggle room in faerie bargains.

Ivy must rid the city of imps, keep Jinx from murdering her one solid link to Hell, and fulfill her bargain with the Green Lady--with sidhe assassins hot on her tail.

Just another day's work for Ivy Granger, psychic detective.

    Burning Bright is my favorite book so far in this series. It was packed full of action and had me hooked from page one. I absolutely loved that the storyline between Jinx and Forneus from the prequel Club Nexus was continued on in this book and I love our new character, Sparky. Ivy's life gets extremely complicated in this book, but from what I gather in the clues given to us by this story is that the next book is going to be even more complicated for Ivy and I can't wait! If you still haven't check out this series, I honestly don't know what is wrong with you, because it is a MUST read!

    Today, I am reviewing the Urban Fantasy story Burning Bright by

    Today, I am reviewing the Urban Fantasy story Burning Bright by E.J. Stevens. The third full novel in the Ivy Granger series, it explores what happens when Ivy’s friend succumbs to fell influence, Ivy herself is drawn into honoring a terrible bargain with a fae queen, and the consequences of our protagonist’s halfbreed heritage come to the fore. As always, Stevens gives an engaging read and a thrilling story. I confess that I bought this book as soon as I found out that it was released, even though I didn’t get to read it until much later. 

    I give this book a 4.75/5. Here is my breakdown.

    Characters: 5/5. By now, the characters in the series are familiar, but Stevens continues to reveal new facets of their personalities and show us exactly how the events and environment of Harborsmouth affect them. The interaction between Jinx and Forneus, as limited as it was in this book, is always a thrill, and the evolution of Forneus himself is fascinating to me (how is he keeping his rank in Hell? Does anybody know?). Ivy’s mix of selfish- and selflessness ring true, and I am now utterly terrified of what will happen now that Kaye…
    Well, you’ll have to find that out for yourselves ;).

    Plot/Storyline: 5/5. Stellar. Gripping. Intense. Stevens is, by now, an expert in keeping her reader engaged in her story. The action is continuous and the tension so palpable that it kept me thinking about the story even when I wasn’t actively reading it. The twists and turns are believable and the sense of verisimilitude is maintained. It’s hard to do that in a long-running fantasy series, but Stevens does an admirable job.

    Flow: 5/5. Like a river, Burning Bright carries the reader ever onward. Sometimes it’s fast, sometimes slower, but always moving with nary a dull page…or paragraph! The pacing was phenomenally well done, holding me to the book and bringing me back whenever I had to put it down…which was never by choice!.

    Spelling/Grammar: 3.5/5. Burning Bright is plagued with more grammatical and typographical errors than I am accustomed to seeing in E.J. Stevens’s work. They weren’t distracting, but as my own experience grows I am more aware of them, and they were peppered throughout the work – there were a couple of incorrect spellings of glaistig, for instance, and a misplaced period and comma or two. I’ve seen much worse, but I’ve seen much better as well..

    Overall: 4.75/5. Stevens continues her efforts to become one of the world’s foremost paranormal/urban fantasy authors by producing material of the highest quality. I favorably compare Burning Bright to works like Harry Potter in its depth and character development. I only hope that, when Stevens hits it big, she doesn’t forget about us, her readers ;)

    Handle with Care

    Burning Bright is the third installment in the Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective Series.  Ivy was born with a unique ability to see emotionally charged images by using her sense of touch.  She uses this “gift” to run her business in the fictional city of Harborsmouth.  With her best friend, Jinx as her business partner, and roomie they work with the city’s more unusual cliental.  (Namely the fae who inspired the original R rated versions of fairytales and the Bard.)
    Being a fairy princess is not all it is cracked up to be.  Especially when you have no idea how to control your powers and if you slip up, it’s a death sentence.  The fae feel very little empathy for the likes of Ivy Granger.  In fact, they’re likely to want her dead without giving her a second thought.  But that’s only one of Ivy’s worries.  When Jinx comes home with glowing hickies, Ivy will do anything to find out who assaulted her friend.  That includes throwing herself to the Green Lady for information.  Life’s no walk in the park for Ivy, but at least she has some good allies and a couple of tricks up her leather sleeves.
    Overall, I enjoyed this novel.  Ivy’s time is running short, but that won’t stop her from seeing the good in people while learning from her mistakes.  I look forward to the next installment of this awesome series.  So,if you enjoy urban fantasy novels with a bit of horror interwoven into the details, then this series is for you.
