Review: Of Flame and Fate

Author Cecy Robson
Format e-ARC
Print Length 332 pages
Publisher self-published
Published September 26 2017

Taran Wird, who commands the power to wield fire and lightning, is an oddity in the supernatural world. But neither Taran nor her unique sisters compare to the bizarre entity known as Destiny. And Taran is assigned to protect her.

Born of two witches, Destiny is revered among the supernatural elite for her acute ability to predict the future. Her biggest prophecy involves Taran’s sister, Celia, whom Destiny decreed will bear children strong enough to take on the evil that’s rising. Yet Destiny is not alone in her predictions, or individuality.

When Johnny Fate, a rock star among humans and a male version of Destiny is discovered, his powers and Destiny’s clash, triggering the start of Destiny’s demise and altering the fate of Celia’s unborn children.

Taran, her werewolf lover Gemini, and their allies must determine if it’s Fate who will decide what will become of Celia’s children, or if their lives and the world will perish with Destiny.

My Opinion

***Review contains spoilers from Of Fire and Light***

With Gemini and Taran back together, the council can of course outsource both of their special skill sets. Gemini to being Beta to Aric’s Alpha and Taran to being a body guard. Doesn’t sound bad, I mean after all how much trouble can the supernatural seer actually get into do? Turns out a lot! Destiny accidently runs across Fate and this causes her prophecy to well go a little up in smokes. It also causes her to become dangerously ill. Only the Weird Girls can save her but is fighting fate good or bad?

I love seeing Gemini and Taran together- it is like seeing caution and impulse get married. Gemini is so protective of her and Taran is so reckless that at times it causes some tension. The good kinda of tension that means each care about and understands the other person. How they resolve their conflicts are pretty intensely HOT.

I loved how Destiny and Fate are connected in this story. When they co-exist in the same time period an imbalance is created, one that must be dealt with. How this is resolved is interesting and will engage the reader for the remaining portion of the story. If I was Destiny I would seriously consider no longer working for the council after their display of love in this book. I may even take my mate and say adios completely. 

We get to see snippets of the other sisters and how they are getting along with their mates or lack there of. Poor Emme! I honestly hope that Bren is her mate but he is not, then I hope that she knocks him out. She is too gentle to punch him in the nose but a reader can hope can’t they?

It was fabulous being back in the Weird Girls world. I felt like I was on an epic rollercoaster ride to save everybody that I have grown to love (except for one grouchy neighbor). I cannot wait to read the next one, and will willingly shout the world that I am checking the authors social media sites on the regular hoping for snippets, cover reveals or release dates.

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars
