Overview

Fire Raiser by Melanie Rawn

Bestseller Melanie Rawn plunges down the back stairs of the old South into a dark world of family secrets and the international flesh trade that lies underneath the surface of small town politics and romance.

Holly McClure and Evan Lachlan have survived the fiery beginning of their romance and left Manhattan for Holly’s ancestral home to raise their children. Evan’s the county Sheriff; Holly is still a trouble-making Spellbinder trying to manipulate her family as if they were characters in one of her novels.

But something’s not right in Pocahontas County. Churches are being burned down in mysterious arsons with a taint of magic on them. Sheriff Lachlan suspects that they have something to do with the new owners of the old Westmoreland plantation, now a very upscale Inn, but even if he could find proof, it’s going to be hard to bring a case of Black Magic before a Judge — even in Pocahontas County, where witchcraft is the family business of all the oldest clans.

I bought this book because I have read and enjoyed other books by Melanie Rawn. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed with this book. I felt like the author was using this book as a soapbox to voice her personal opinions about political and personal matters and because of this, the story suffered. Also, it wasn't as if she was trying to tackle one pressing issue, every chapter had a different rant from the author, including one where a character was talking about how her readers complained because she wasn't writing the book that they wanted to read and that their sense of "entitlement" was hilarious. As a reader who has been waiting for her to finish her Exiles trilogy for over 10 years, I was personally insulted. The story was only marginally good and where I anticipated twists in the plot, there were none.

I am fond of Melanie Rawn's writing as a whole; this is an exellent example. Well wrtten, keeps your attention, several nice romantic atory lines, and with wnough realism to keep the reader engaged.

I find it unbelievable that this women can continue to write new books without finishing a trilogy from more than 10 years ago. I wouldn't trust this woman to complete any of the new series she is putting out, nor will I purchase anything written by her until she finishes what she started.

I can't believe Melanie Rawn wrote this story..must be some kind of cosmic joke. The best story here is what is written between the lines..I wish her luck, she's going to need it.

Evan Lachlan and his Witch wife Holly McClure have moved from Manhattan to her hometown in Pocahontas County, Virginia. It is the place with the most concentration of witches in the country and while Holly is a Spellbinder who uses her blood on spells so they won¿t unravel. While her husband Evan is running for county sheriff, she loves the way he takes in stride her family¿s magical skills.

He takes a break from the rigorous investigation into an apparent serial arsonist burning down churches using magic as the ignition trigger. The couple attends a fundraiser for Evan at the Westmoreland Inn and Spa. Upon arrival the pair chokes on the magic that fills the air. Holly¿s cousin Cam finds a doorway not visible without magic. They all enter only to find some hideous things on the other side and even more horrifying is there is no return exit out.

Melanie Rawn has written a terrific spellbinding action-packed fantasy thriller that will remind the audience of the works of Kelly Armstrong. Readers who became acquainted with the lead couple in SPELLBINDER will especially appreciate how far they have come as a couple since their initial volatile magical meeting. FIRE RAISER is fast-paced and loaded with action from the onset, but ignites when the cast (and spellbound readers) decide to see what is beyond the door.

After enjoying the first book, I tried, really tried to give this one a chance, but I read to escape the news, not rehash political posturing, and quite frankly, after this past winter, maybe the Holly character should reconsider her championing global warming. Sixty pages in, I tossed this one on the donate to Salvation Army pile.
