Fire in the Darkness by Stacey Maries Brown
Kindle Edition, 328 pages
Published: August 31, 2013 by Twisted Fairy Publishing
Age Group: New Adult
Series: Darkness #2

***This is NOT a YA Series but a New Adult(17+). Sexual Content and Language.***

It’s been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.
And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.
Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.
Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?
No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.

My Thoughts
This series just blows my mind. You guys all remember how much I LOVED Darkness of Light, and Fire in the Darkness delivered just as much as the first book. I could not put it down. it kept me guessing right up until the end, and I think I actually gasped out loud a few times while reading.

Ember is awesome in Fire in the Darkness. She has this amazing dry sense of humor. She just deadpans these great one liners and she is constantly cracking me up. I love watching her zing Eli over and over again. But even though she is all fierce and kick butt and can totally hold her own, we get to see so many different sides to her. We see some of her darker Demon side, as well as a more vulnerable and dare I say it-softer side.

I was a little nervous when the book first started that we wouldn’t see much of Eli this time around. The book starts off a little after the first book left off, with Ember on the run from the Seelie Queen after she finally found out what she was. But never fear, soon enough Eli and his gang show up. Eli puts up a big front about doing what he needs to for his family and how everything was an act for him, but you can see right through him. I loved watching him and Ember interact. The way they bantered and pushed each others buttons was so funny, and so clearly filled with URST. And when he showed up in her dreamscape and didn’t like Torin, I squee-ed like a little girl.

But Eli isn’t the only guy in Fire in the Darkness. I have to say, I didn’t see the whole Lars thing coming! But that is the beauty of the darkness series. It keeps you on your toes. You won’t be able to put this book down. This is quickly turning out to be one of my favorite paranormal series, not just of the year, but of all time. There are so many new surprises in this book, I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone, so you will just have to experience the magic of Fire in the Darkness for yourself.
