**Warning - My review may contain spoilers if you haven't read the previous book in the series**


It's been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm (ECS) has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.

And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.

About the Author

She is a lover of hot fictional bad boys and sarcastic heroines who kick butt. She also enjoys books, travel, TV shows, hiking, writing, design, and archery. Stacey swears she is part gypsy, being lucky enough to live and travel all over the world.

She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family's farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. She volunteers helping animals and is Eco-friendly. She feels all animals, people and environment should be treated kindly.

My Take

Fire in the Darkness picks up after the devastation brought upon Seattle by Ember when the first book ended. Ember is in hiding as all manner of Fae are looking for her. When Ember is cornered by those who would seek to harm her, Eli swoops in to save the day! But for Ember, having Eli around is no better than the other Fae she's trying to avoid.

Ember is trying to learn to use her knew skills but has constant threats that always seem to be around her. Her attraction to Eli is like a forbidden love that I just couldn't get enough of. We get to meet new characters to love and hate and there are a few twists that I didn't see coming! Lars, the fierce Unseelie King finds Ember after she barely escapes another attack of dark Fae; is he her savior or does Lars have other plans for Ember that can change the course of her future forever?

The writing of this book is true to Stacey's previous work and her talents of spinning this fantastical story with enough emotion weaved throughout makes this a hard book to put down. Several Facebook posts laying blame for book hangovers were left on her page!! Stacey has a incredible ability to make her characters come to life so that you become a part of the story; you hurt when they hurt, you grieve with them during their losses, you laugh and celebrate along with their fun and triumphs.

This is another ball hit out of the park for author Stacey Marie Brown. Just when I wondered how she would improve on the first book in this series, she sucked me into an whole new adventure that was even better than the first!

Overall, I give this book 

Here's how to get your copy!
