**** AWESOME book and I LOVED it ** **

I really liked Kian a lot but this one was just amazing. It was the perfect follow up for Kian and really developed the world.

I loved the characters, especially Ceithin *dreamy sigh* I really liked the role water played in this book, specifically the scenes where the water was dripping off of Ceithin... I am a visual person but i couldn't pick just one visual to go with so here are 4:

As is to be expected for a trilogy, this middle volume can be summarized by “the plot thickens”. Darach and Ceithin’s story provides the bridge between the opening volleys of the battle I saw in book one, and what is sure to be a cataclysmic finale in book three. It also takes place in Kian’s old home realm, and I loved finding out more of the details of how those with Fire live, how their world is different from our version of Earth, what their issues are, and how Kian’s friend Darach is dealin ...more
The story was okay even if everything stayed unsolved. It was enjoyable to see Kian and Regan again, too. But this second pair, Darach and Ceithin, felt forced. Their communication was full of bickering and the bonding at the end felt forced. In my opinion the plot in this second book has to many holes. I didn't much like it. Here we have a bland story with week plot.
Maybe the third book in this series will be better, this one is nearly bad.
An amazing book to follow Kian. While Kian was focused here and gave us only a glimpse of the Otherworld, Darach takes us there. I can't wait to read Eoin.
When I reached a certain point in the book, I was like (view spoiler)

I loved the fact that, although it was Darach's story, there was a bit of Kian and Regan too. I was glad to read of them again.

Ceithin at first didn't seemed nice to me, but that was just at the beginning, while reading more of him I
Don Bradshaw
This second installment of The Fire Trilogy was pretty good. Darach is Kian's best friend and stuck back on their home world. It was brought out in this book that Kian, Darach and their dead friend, Eoin, were prophesied about. Darch comes across a prisoner, Ceithin, that was being held by the council and aids in his escape. The two men travel back to Ceithin's people where Darach learns more truths than he really wants to know. This book should have taken more time explaining the mysterious co ...more

This is the second story in the Fire trilogy. Darach is the best friend of Kian and was left behind when Kian went the Otherworld, because his Fire wasn’t ready. Ceithin is a Cariad, a gypsy, and the person that helped Kian cross over. Now Darach is seeking him out as well, to help him cross over. Darach can feel that Kian is in danger.
This story starts pretty much where we left the last one, with Kian and Regan fighting the demons and getting use to their new relationship. But something isn’t
The second installment in the Fire Trilogy continues the story from Darach and Ceithin's perspectives. A call to a quest to save both worlds and a love grows between men of two cultures.

The foundations of intrigues are laid and I expect we will find the full mystery and answers to all of the questions in the final book, Eoin's Destiny. We know that both men have lost their brother to tragic Amber circumstances. Darach's blood brother, Eoin was consumed by his Amber fire (or was he?) and Ceithi

In book 2 we see a bit more from Kian and his Hunter, Regan. They are still struggling as a couple and Kian is having terrible nightmares from the other world. Both are more determined than ever to cross back.
Meanwhile, Darach is following his destiny by finding the man who helped Kian cross over, Ceithin. Ceithin is a Cariad (something like a gypsy) and is thought of like a mongrel or some other distasteful part of society, but he holds strong magic and is willing to help Darach learn to contro

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

What continues here is awesome world building. Scott does a fantastic job of continuing to build on the world that she’s already created and giving it an ever more fleshed out feel. This worked perfectly within the plot, as the Cariad practice a more ancient magick than those in the City do. The clan has a better handle on Fire and elements, what they can do, and how to use them. I loved that we got to learn more about the way the magick works. The more we learn,

The prophecy was foretold of how Darach would fall from grace and his mated Fire would be crimson and scarlet of a healer. Darach of course thought this would happen by following after Kian and one of his crazy adventures. Little did he know his story was just about to unfold before his very eyes. And so begin the second installment in this trilogy.

Darach has been waiting the day for his fire to come to life and to begin his search for his bl

My Rating: 4 of 4 Stars
(Based on Short&Light Read Category)

This is the second book to the Fire Trilog and it continues the story that started out with Kian's Hunter. In this installment, we are taken back into the strange world where fire and magic dictate the destinies for those who carry them. In this world, the bond of two is strong, but in Kian's and now, Darach's, case, they had a bond of t
Darach added what Kian couldnt provide me in the beginning - the depth of the plot. Even though the plot couldnt be expended in Darach but at least the understanding of what,why and how the happening (trilogy) comes about. In fact, I appreciate Darach more than Kian and couldnt wait the end of this trilogy. The reason I couldnt give it a 4 stars, it is just too short for me to appreciate the characters. Sort of like "wish it could have been more" type of thing.
4.5 stars

I loved this book... I enjoyed Kian (book 1), this book follows straight on.
In this book we learn more about the power of the fire and the two parallel worlds. I liked the fact that we got to see both worlds within this book. We find that both worlds are in danger.

Darach and Ceithin are different characters, one is quiet and shy, where the other is full of mischief. Makes interesting read, the more they get to know one another the more they clash, the more there bond sizzles. They seem
A good follow up to the first book in the series. There is a cliffhanger at the end but since the third book is out already it shouldn't really bother anyone. I would have liked to have felt a bit more wooing/light flirtatious action from Darach and Ceithin but even with the light subtle hints of feelings building between them it was a good read. The plot thickens and readers are introduced to Eoin in this one.
This a 2 - 3 star so again I will probably be changing stars around. I don't think I was as into the romance in this second book; however, the story arc itself is interesting so I will definitely be getting the conclusion to the trilogy.
More of a 3.75, the overall story was really good, I just couldn't connect with Darach and Ceithin as a couple...Still I can't wait for the last installment.
Must read the first book in the trilogy to fully apreciate this one. I don't think it works as a stand alone.

Cliffhanger much? Holy crap I ready for the final book, like ... now.

Again, loved the book and the characters, but it's waaaaay too short.

This book had me from the first paragraph, the way it opened with Kian and Regan is brilliant! Then you meet Darach, who we knew about from book 1, and Ceithin, and you fall in love with them too! The way Rj paints a picture of the alternate world is a true marvel! There is a twist in this one that will blow you away, so waste no more time, read the first then grab this one and dive right in! Thanks Rj, for these books that prove that anything is possible in love if it is truly in your heart!
Darach's Cariad

I fell in love both Darach's and Ceithin in this book. Their is a shock towards the end. Darach's is a newbie with his powers while Ceithin is not. Ceithin and his sister help Darach's learn how to control his powers while Darach's and Ceithin fall in love. There are up and downs in this book and they have to find another person being held prisoner and drained of his powers. I can not for the next book to find out what happens next. Erin
