Incendiary: Review

I can now move on to another series cuz I finished reading Incendiary!


Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on my cheeks as I emerge from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling my dark pea coat tighter to my body, the wind lifts red tendrils of my hair. I walk slowly to the railing overlooking the water.

I catch my first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes me shiver in dread. I find it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it. The cold, moss-covered edifices practically scream their presence. As I study the shadows between the falling-down stone, I imagine creeping shapes of undead Faeries grasping the rock, waiting for our ship to draw nearer to their position.

Tipping my face up, I let the rain wash over me. It bathes away the frigid sweat of fear that has broken on my brow. "You don't know how fiercely beautiful you are, do you?" A quiet voice behind me asks, causing me to stiffen and fix my eyes on the rocks along the shoreline.


No offense, but I find this book a little bit overrated. It deserves 4 or above out of 5 stars. But 4.63? Isn't that a little too high? And you know what? I still think Intuition is the best book in The Premonition series so far. But don't get me wrong. Incendiary is awesome. 

But there are two very annoying point in Incendiary. Firstly, what's with all the stretching? I really, really cried out "JUST GET ON WITH IT ALREADY!" and it kind of scared my mom. I mean, really, don't just stand here and talk crap. The anticipation is killing me.

And second is the messed-up relationship. Reed is Evie's current love and her perfect angel. Perfect, right? Nah, Russell is her soul mate, but he has his aspire. Yay, right? Still nah, there's Xavier, who should be Evie's aspire, which is very annoying because Reed doesn't deserve a challenge, especially from a full-Seraphim. And then there's Brennus, which is the most frustrating and annoying of all, believe that he loves Evie and she is his. This is not just love triangle anymore. This is a freaking love box.

But still, it's awesome. I mean, there are not so much heart-breaking and more battle. Battle is always cool, especially when all the guys have great killing skills. And then there's less Brennus now, which is very relieving because he's such a jerk, for thinking himself deserves Evie. And then there's the constant anticipation. Yeah, you might think that why I had mentioned that anticipation is a bad thing. Well, there are two sides of anticipation. And strangely, this is both. Anticipation of seeing Brennus being killed, even though it will not happen until Iniquity (if Iniquity is the last book and Iniquity has a HEA ending)

I hope I can read Iniquity soon because the excerpt scares me. So, another anticipation now. UGH. I can live with it.

Rating: 7.5/10
