From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book two in her Flesh and Fire series…
The only one who can save Sera now is the one she spent her life planning to kill.
The truth about Sera’s plan is out, shattering the fragile trust forged between her and Nyktos. Surrounded by those distrustful of her, all Sera has is her duty. She will do anything to end Kolis, the false King of Gods, and his tyrannical rule of Iliseeum, thus stopping the threat he poses to the mortal realm.
Nyktos has a plan, though, and as they work together, the last thing they need is the undeniable, scorching passion that continues to ignite between them. Sera cannot afford to fall for the tortured Primal, not when a life no longer bound to a destiny she never wanted is more attainable than ever. But memories of their shared pleasure and unrivaled desire are a siren’s call impossible to resist.
And as Sera begins to realize that she wants to be more than a Consort in name only, the danger surrounding them intensifies. The attacks on the Shadowlands are increasing, and when Kolis summons them to Court, a whole new risk becomes apparent. The Primal power of Life is growing inside her, pushing her closer to the end of her Culling. And without Nyktos’s love—an emotion he’s incapable of feeling—she won’t survive her Ascension. That is if she even makes it to her Ascension and Kolis doesn’t get to her first. Because time is running out. For both her and the realms.
A light in the flame picks up directly after A shadow in the ember. I found the first half of the book to be long and slow. Jennifer L Armentrout takes the time to develop the characters of Nyktos and Sera but sometimes it’s a little too long.
I enjoyed this book overall, we learn quite a bit and discover familiar family names.
I learned to appreciate some characters, others much less and I have doubts about some of them. The end is a torture because we will have to wait for the continuation.
I hope that the next volume will be released next year because I really like Nyktos, Nektas and Reaver.
Quick word: A tome a bit long but it becomes exciting in the second part.
A light in the flame reprend directement après A shadow in the ember. J’ai trouvé que la première moitié du livre était longue et lente. Jennifer L Armentrout prend le temps de développer les personnages de Nyktos et Sera mais parfois c’est un peu trop long.
J’ai bien aimé ce tome dans l’ensemble, on apprend pas mal de choses et on découvre des noms de famille familiers.
J’ai appris à apprécier certains personnages, d’autres beaucoup moins et j’ai des doutes concernant certains. La fin est une torture parce qu’il va falloir attendre pour la suite.
J’espère que le prochain tome sortira l’année prochaine parce j’aime vraiment beaucoup Nyktos, Nektas et Reaver.
En bref : Un tome un peu long mais qui devient palpitant dans la deuxième partie.
