Description: Being a FireSoul has its perks. Cass Clereaux can find any type of magical treasure or steal any magical power. She'll pick hunting treasure any day because she doesn't have to kill for it, but that doesn't mean she hasn't stolen powers before. She needs them to stay alive. A fight to the death is the least of what she can expect if other supernaturals find out what she is, so Cass has become an expert at lying low.. When her friend is sucked into a magical portal, she's the only one with the power to help him. But what Cass uncovers is a danger greater than she'd ever imagined-and linked to her past in a way she'd never expect. Even worse, the portal puts her whole town at risk. As the threat grows, she must confront her fear of losing control over her new powers or lose any hope of saving hundreds of lives.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The got-your-back friendships in this series continue to impress me. People who put themselves on the line for each other are a rare gem and make for wonderful characters to read about. The relationship between Aidan and Cass continues to grow, and I really like these two together. With their full-on crisis mode adventures, they get so little time to fall in love, but they are definitely on that road.
I also loved the expansion of the world and unique creatures in this book. I absolutely loved the elemental dragonettes. Of course, the unique abilities of very key players in this story were fascinating to me as well. I loved the portal and other-world depiction.
But most of all, I love a series where the protagonists continue to develop and their depth of character is shown again and again. Cass faces the Monster in this adventure, and I can’t wait to see her take him down for good one day! Our brave and determined Cass put herself at risk in the previous book, but here she sacrifices a lot of who she is and what has become so important to her. But she does it willingly so that she can save her town and protect her friends. Will she be able to get back what she lost? I don’t know! I need the next book to find out!
A solid 4.5 stars from me.
