Flameout by Keri Arthur

Souls of Fire, Book 3

Synopsis: Emberly and her red hot partner, Jackson, have hit an impasse in their battle against the crazed humans infected by a plague-like virus derived from vampire blood. Their quest to unearth the leader of the group leads them into an ambush—and leaves Emberly at odds with her former lover, Sam, who’s pressuring her to join his Paranormal Investigations Team.

To make matters worse, three local witches have been kidnapped—and if their spells fall into the wrong hands, Emberly’s powers could end up smothered. With time ticking until the virus consumes the world, Emberly and Jackson must race to save the witches, find a cure, and smoke out their nemesis—or go down in a blaze of glory…

Review: I enjoyed the first two volumes of the series and it’s true that I was eager to discover this third book to learn more about our dear Phoenix! Indeed, Keri Arthur is an author that I like and few of her books have disappointed me so far. Yet it is true that I have struggled with this story …

We find, as usual, our dear Emberly, her brother Sam and Jackson and we are once again embarked on a new adventure in search of documents that everyone desire. Although I was carried away every time by the other books, I admit that I had a great difficulty in adhering to the story and even sometimes reluctant to continue. Yet all was not like that and I still had a good time regarding the novel. It was nice to find these characters to see how they lived and what they were willing to do. Our heroes will face a race against time, many parties trying to blackmail them to retrieve the information they could or would hold. The general idea is quite interesting to follow and certain events draw our attention but it’s true that nothing is really surprising or unexpected. I do not know, something was missing and I had it in the previous volumes. This time the story left me with a pretty empty feeling… It’s not that it’s not good for me but it was not up to the others. This will not prevent me from reading the others but I think that it was not a novel for me.

Finally a novel that will not necessarily leave a great memory, I’m not sure if it’s really necessary to read it to understand the full story, but it’s still interesting to find the characters.

  1. I’ve only read the first book Melliane, but really enjoyed it. I’m sorry the third book was not as enjoyable and that it felt like something was missing. Hopefully the next will be a great read. Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
