Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson

Weird Girls, Book 6

Synopsis: Cursed by a spell meant to destroy them, Taran Wird and her sisters instead developed unique magical talents. With the power of fire and lightning literally at her fingertips, Taran doesn’t fear much. Demons, vamps, whatever—bring ’em on! Only one thing terrifies her: commitment.

Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.

Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with.

Review: I loved the first part of the series starring Celia Wird and it is true that it’s sad to leave her behind. Yet without finishing the series, the author had decided to make a new volume featuring another sister and we find Taran this time.

I admit that I was very surprised when I started the story because I expected this volume to follow the previous one concluding Celia’s life but it’s not exactly the case. In fact we rather go back in time, when our old heroine lived with Misha, far from Aric, and while Emme was filling the perfect love and when Taran was trying to deal with her relationship with Gemini. It’s something very delicate as the woman does not believe that she can really be happy in the future, especially when she sees her sister’s relationship with the alpha… In fact she thinks it will be the same for her. But now, Gemini wants her to meet his parents and to finally claim her to really make her in the eyes of the werewolves.

I enjoyed this story, it was nice to follow another sister, especially when you really appreciate the series. I was a little disappointed to go back in time but I admit that it was a pleasure to see the universe and the characters we love so much. The novel itself is not as long as the others, but we have a good plot full of new problems and demons that our main characters are going to hunt.

Yes, it was once again a pleasant reading and I wonder what the author will then present us for these sisters that we love and which we still hope to see more about!

  1. Thank you so much, Delhia. I’m very happy you were able to read, review, and feature Of Flame and Promise. Thank you also for participating in the blast. Your support means a great deal to me!

  2. I just told Ali that this series is on my list this year for sure. I’ve been meaning to get to it forever and even have the first book, but I just keep getting distracted by other things. Can’t wait to meet Taran eventually! I think she might be my favorite:)

  3. I’m with you in that I was hoping were moving forward with the timeline but through Taran’s eyes now especially as Celia and Aric are okay. I didn’t really care much for the witches and their devil spawn

  4. How did so many of us miss that this story was before or during book 5? I felt the same way. I felt a little let down at that. I did enjoy Taran’s story though. She always makes me laugh. 🙂

  5. oh I see this is a series that I need to get to soon!!! I have heard so many great things about this author but dang this one sounds so good I am tempted to buy it even though I have forbidden myself to buy books for the next few months. hehe Maybe my library will get it if I am lucky enough. Great thoughts on it.
