Making a name for myself as a Villain in Panopolis is hard work. Six months ago, my boyfriend broke me out of jail. Now he’s spending most of his time defending our turf against other Villains he accidentally freed along with me. And my new psychic powers are not only impossible to control, but they’re also giving me migraines.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. My skills are improving every day, and Raul—aka the Mad Bombardier—and I have never been happier. That is, until my first solo job is interrupted by a mysterious woman who tells me that Raul has been kidnapped by a ruthless new Villain. The only way to free him is to do a job for Maggot, a man with scary ideas and an even scarier superpower.
I can’t go to the cops or a Hero for help. Odds are they wouldn’t listen to me anyway. If I fail, Raul will be killed. If I succeed, we’ll both be bound to a man who’ll stop at nothing to put Panopolis on the path to civil war.
Where There’s Fire picks up six months after Where There’s Smoke left off. Just when Edward thinks that he can have a life with Raul, things go wrong during a heist and chaos begins! Full of more action, excitement, and more heartbreak, this book is even better than the first in the series!
The author does such a fantastic job of writing the tale between these two men and making their relationship even stronger. New characters are introduced and the men’s love is tested is many ways, proving how strong their bond really is. Edward wanted to be Raul’s equal in the supernatural world, but a new character makes that impossible and Edward must make a choice – be who he wants to be or follow a different path to save the man he loves.
I love the excitement and action in this story much more than the first. I wasn’t sure if the author could keep the story as exciting as the first, but she exceeded my expectations! Great job, Carli Z! I can only imagine how much more will be in the next installment of the series! It’s already on my must read list!
