Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr and a self-reliant loner. So when he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost to himself. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed-and Quinn realizes he must risk everything- even Sara’s love-to fulfill their entwined fates…
Personal Thoughts: I have read the newer books by Deborah Cooke in the YA category. I enjoyed them thoroughly and wanted to see what kind of books were in her backlist. My expectations were a bit high because of the books that I read before.The initial storyline was intriguing enough to get me starting on reading, however, there wasn’t that much to the storyline as I anticipated.
I think that one of the downfalls was that there was too much history being revealed too quickly and not enough interaction between the characters in between. There was some interaction between Sara and Quinn in the beginning and when I expected their relationship to delve deeper, it didn’t. They were involved too quickly and there was not enough interaction throughout the book between them. I think there was too much focus on the firestorm and getting it accomplished. I felt as though I knew more about the Pyr and their history, rather than the main characters. I kept waiting to see something more happen between Sara and Quinn but nothing did and it was lacking.
Aside from that, there was a lot of action packed into the novel that kept me reading until the end. I will be checking out the next book in the series, however, my expectations will be set a lot lower than before.
