Fire in the Blood by Robyn Bachar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Woah, that was a super quick read! Having slogged through the previous 3 books, I was ready for a bit of a ride here, but it was actually a lot more straightforward than the previous installments.
This book is about Patience, who we met in the previous books. She's one of the only summoners left in the world that is being inundated with demons. If that wasn't bad enough, then there's also the shadowy government agents trying to take out supernaturals, and a very unstable vampire who is throwing a hissy fit. When we had little hints of Patience in a relationship-ish with Faust, I was hoping we would see that grow in this book. Boy, does it ever!
We go right from "are they a couple," to hearts and love and all that cupid stuff. This read like a sudden fated mates story, which was a little weird because they had been hooking up for a while before now. There's even some sudden reveals about family and lineage thrown in (not in an incesty way), just to keep things shocking. As an overall storyline, I'm not sure a lot happened, other than the seemingly docile bad guy from the start of the previous book being suddenly out for revenge. The pacing was better here, so I'm down for more at this point.
