Danielle Annett’s BURNED BY FIRE takes place following book 2, KISSED BY FIRE. Aria Naveed is hired to find a witchling child. She soon discovers that she is being held by the Human Alliance Corporation (HAC) and needs to be rescued. Simultaneously, she is dealing with her mating to Alpha, Declan Valkenaar, and pack issues. This urban fantasy is suitable for adults.
Danielle Annett continues to do a great job with her character development. Aria persists in growing her powers. She is also struggling with her unwanted mating to Declan. She is attracted to him but doesn’t know if it is because of the bond. She discovers some disturbing news that she is unsure of how to handle.
In the prior books, I didn’t trust Declan. My opinion of him has changed. I do like him and think his feelings for Aria are genuine. Being the Alpha of the Pacific Northwest Pack he has a lot of responsibility and a stressful job. Aria is adding to his stress.
I like that Aria hires Inarus as a mercenary. He ends up becoming a good friend to her. Furthermore, being a fellow psyker he is an excellent resource.
HAC makes an interesting opponent. Aiden can be a brutal individual. There were many interesting scenes with him, especially at the end of this story.
BURNED BY FIRE has an excellent plot. The novel is exciting from beginning to end. Danielle Annett does a great job of including information from the previous stories. I love the ending and cannot wait to find out what happens in the next book. If you haven’t read the previous books, I recommend starting with book one, CURSED BY FIRE, to become more invested in the series.
