Review: Wicked Flames (Solsti Prophecy #3) by Sharon Kay

Gin Bonham lives with a dark secret. Born with an ability she never wanted, she builds her life around science and logic, running from the terror she is capable of causing. When sexy stranger Mathias spots her on a dance floor and cuts in, he leads Gin in a sensual rhythm that continues long after the music stops. But Mathias hides the fact that he knows exactly what she can do: in the deepest recesses of her mind lurks the power to manipulate fire. Destiny is coming for her and it doesn’t care if she’s ready or not.

Mathias possesses tracking and espionage skills so extraordinary that his fellow Lash demons call him The Hunter. Pursue and interrogate. He never fails. When he is tasked with coaxing Gin to work with the Lash demons against a common enemy, he relishes the challenge. But meeting her awakens a new, primal drive that pulls him toward her even as his tactics break her heart.

Failing to win Gin’s cooperation is not an option. But she is determined to flee, putting thousands of miles between her and any other supernatural creatures, including Mathias. Can she cool the charred embers of her emotions enough to forgive Mathias and embrace what she was meant to become? Or will her ability explode into something more than she can control?

I’ve read each of the books in this series, and I have to say that I found Gin the hardest of the sisters to empathize with or even like. Stubbornly refusing to see the necessity of embracing her powers, and using that stubbornness to hide her inherent fear of making a mistake, Gin’s transformation was slower than I expected to see.

Mathias I found to be a bit withholding early on, although he quickly showed his ability to communicate honestly and from the heart – a real surprise for a very alpha and protective demon.  There were times when I felt his frustration with Gin’s hesitancy, even though I could understand her fear. The thing is –Gin is smart: off the chains smart. So, when she started to get some answers about how things work, and their purpose, she should have loosened up some and trusted in herself and her powers. And Mathias was incredibly patient and encouraging: something truly unexpected from his manner and approach to go, do, solve and leave.

Loaded with action that kept the characters jumping from one moment to another, and when the action wasn’t always ‘life threatening’ readers were treated to some super-steamy, super-sized sex scenes that keep heartbeats racing even though there is no running involved.

I’ve enjoyed this series, and look forward to finding out just where the one surprising revelation told in a seemingly out of place point of view will take us. If you like sexy, fast paced stories that carry a touch of magic and paranormal – this is a great series to grab.
