Forbidden Fire Blog Tour

Today is the tour stop for Forbidden Fire, second book in the Fire trilogy by Kimberly Kinrade. If you missed last week's stop of Forbidden Mind, the first book, click HERE. Included here in this post is review, excerpt, and giveaway.

Title: Forbidden Fire (Forbidden #2)
Author: Kimberly Kinrade
Genre: Young Adult
Publish Date: March 2012

About the Book:
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?

My Review:
Sam and Drake are a cute couple. Even more a couple because of their paranormal ability. While we learned and got to know about Sam in the first book, this second book starts out with us learning a little more about Drake. Who raised him, who he lived with, and why he was so special to this person.

Having escaped Rent-a-Kid, the kids are having to be extra careful. They are being tracked and hunted, but do not know by whom. This book picked up where the first book left off and the action continues. This book was also a quick read and more characters are introduced. It does get a little more gritty because of all that is happening, and Drake and Sam are getting a little closer. Their first date or what they title their first date is kind of fun.

Other than the main characters, I really enjoyed Luke and Lucy. They are a great sibling pair. They sure have to mature quickly and try and help all the others at the school. Even though it was tough to lose their mother, they were able to become stronger and smarter to realize all that the abilities would let them do and be.

This was a great second book in the trilogy. I would recommend this series to any reader 12 years and older who likes action and adventure. Definitely do need to read the series in order.
