Book Review of Forbidden Fire by Kimberly Kinrade AND a GIVEAWAY (Yay!)

Forbidden Mind sealed my fate as a fan for life of Kinrade. However, still, I was a little worried about Forbidden Fire for a few reasons. One, I knew for a fact that this installment was written from varying point of views. And, while I quite like the idea of multiple POVs, not many authors can pull it off effectively. I was also worried because this was the second part of a three-part series. And from previous experiences, often, the books in the middle just sort of rehash the same ideas over and over, dragging it all out, and so often they fail to serve up much in the way of excitement.

Oh, but it only took a few pages of Kinrade’s writing to put a smile on my face, to cause me to scoot to the edge of my seat, to make me laugh at myself for even letting a worry surface about her impeccable writing. Because Forbidden Fire thrusts the reader into the depths of the story without pause. And I can tell you, Kinrade more than pulls off the varying POVs. The switch between narrators is effortless and smooth, and downright thrilling, leaving us hanging with the end of each section. Pulling at us. Forcing us to just keep turning, keep hanging on.

Her writing is simple, and I mean this as a compliment. She doesn’t get bogged down with too much description, and, yet, she gives us enough to satiate our growing curiosity. Her imagery is vivid, and the love which these characters share is sure to not only cause you to fist pump the air rooting for them, but cause you clutch at your chest as they invade you and warm your heart.

I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this series. How perplexed I am that anyone would ever not read these. Even if you don’t read YA or paranormal romance normally, I dare you to pick up this series and put it down. In fact, no, I double dog dare you.

So where does the last installment, Forbidden Life, take us? I’m not sure, but bring it on Kinrade. I’m ready.
