“She escaped, but she’ll never be free.”
“Time held no meaning as my mind darted in and out of memories. Past and present collided to create a full-sensory collage out of my life: playing hide-n-seek with my best friends Luke–who always cheated by walking through walls when he was about to be caught–and Lucy; Mr. Caldrin critiquing my sketches and offering ideas to make them more realistic; targets changing faces, blending into the same person, their thoughts rippling through my mind like waves. Through it all, a demon stalked me from the shadows of my memories, never quite showing its face, but crouching, waiting.
And then I dreamed….”
Sam and Drake may have escaped, but they aren’t free—not with a powerful Seeker after them. As Sam struggles with the ethics of her new powers and embraces a blossoming physical relationship with Drake, Lucy and Luke face challenges of their own.
With forces coalescing inside and outside the Rent-A-Kid dorms, it’s only a matter of time before the fire they started forces each of them to make choices they can’t undo. But will it be enough to save them?
I do not know if it’s possible to love a sequel more than the first book, but I do! There was a lot more action in Forbidden Fire. I loved every word in this book.
Sam and Drake are on the run after escaping from Rent-A-Kid. They face some major obstacles. Sam keeps getting extremely sick. There are also people that keep finding them.
I love how these books continue to focus on morality issues. You learn a lot about good and evil. Some of the characters begin to learn that that it’s not all black and white. There are many situations that fall into that gray area. Sam is concerned about her powers being good or evil. It’s one of the major points of this book.
There are a couple of surprises. Especially regarding the Seeker. I’m also curious about Father Patrick. He knows a lot about these powers. Is he a person with a power, or is there something else going on?
I also really enjoyed the alternating viewpoints. It was great hearing from characters other than Drake and Sam.
I highly recommend this series. The story line is intriguing, and it leaves you wondering what’s next.
