This is the first book that I have read by Christopher Rice. Even though this is the second book in the Burning Girl series, I found it still easy to follow without having read the first book first.
Charlotte Rowe is a very intriguing character and truly adds to the story that is unfolding. As the story progresses you learn more about her and her abilities.
The first few chapters of the book was hard to get into but as the story progressed it got better. Eventually I struggled to put the book down.
Christopher Rice does a nice job at creating suspense and intrigue. The characters are well written. I am still unsure about Charlotte Rowe's boss and if he is an antagonist in this series or not.
Rating: 4 out of 5

With everyone she cares about in danger, Charlotte has no choice but to bring her powers home.
Charlotte Rowe has been triggered, and now she’ll have to take matters into her own powerful hands.
