“Fierce like a Firestorm” happens to be the third sequel I’m reading in a row. And I have one more after this. I completely prefer binge reading a series in a row which is why my upcoming trilogy is rapid release in three consecutive days.
“Wicked Like a Wildfire” was the first book and when I looked back at my review to remember parts of the story (https://cassieswindon.com/2022/09/13/review-293/) I was surprised that I gave the first a 3.4/5 stars. That usually means I’m not interested in the sequel, so maybe I simply forgot to take off my library loan list.
Here’s the blurb:
In the bewitching conclusion to Lana Popovic’s sumptuous and romantic teen fantasy duology, perfect for fans of Holly Black and Leigh Bardugo, Malina must rescue her twin sister from a magical power more dangerous than Death.
Twin sisters Iris and Malina thought they knew how to reverse the ancient curse that haunts their line, the spell that destines them to use their gleams—unique forms of beauty-manipulating magic—to entice and enchant none other than Death himself. But both sisters thought wrong.
Instead of ending the wicked bargain with the power of her infinite bloom, Iris is taken to an uncanny realm between this world and the next. Only, unlike all of Death’s companions before, Iris’s body goes on the one-way journey along with her soul, arriving in a kingdom never meant to sustain a living girl.
Left behind, Lina searches for a way to save Iris. But as Lina unearths the dark secrets that bind her family and Iris tries to outwit Death on his own terrain, a power resurfaces that even Mara, the original witch mother, fears.
Now both sisters must learn to fully embrace their gleams—or else they’ll truly lose each other forever.
So, nothing negative to the author for this sequel, I just didn’t get very far because I realized I ended up skimming the first book. I just didn’t know enough about the story. But check it out y’all.
