VERY surprising turn of events. I have to admit, the story lines I would have figured as a sequel to A Demon Made Me Do It don't hold a candle to the roller coaster ride in this book. My heart about leaped out my chest several times. Great follow-up, and still looking forward to more.

"Love can shove it."

And Bones is as always, oh, so HOT! I think I like him best of the guys in the series. I initially was on the fence as to which 'team' I was on (Team Bones vs. Team Kieron) But afte

Fire with Fire is the second book in the Demonblood series by Penelope King. All I can say is wow. I received the first book in this series, A Demon Made Me Do It, for review, and as soon as I read the last sentence I immediately got on Amazon and purchased this book. I just was not ready for the drama to be finished. Unfortunately, now I have to wait until this summer to get my next fix.

Fire with Fire continues the story of Liora and Lucky. It picks up the story a couple of months down the roa

Okay, it is official! Penelope King has just topped my list of favorite authors!! WOW! I still get chills thinking about this book. For those who read the first book in the Demonblood series, A Demon Made Me Do It, if you haven't read this book, drop everything and do it now!

The much loved characters of book one are back, with the addition of a few new ones. I still can't fault any of them. They are so amazing and well-written. They will stay with you for hours after you have finished reading.

That was awesome!! I'm so in love with this series and hate the fact that I have to wait for the next book. I don't want to give anything away but poor Bones, I hope we find out more about the reincarnation and how they keep finding each other. I also hope that Tatiana shows up again, I really liked her and man is she powerful. I loved how Liora "saves" Corrine, I think that was almost the best part. I can't really say what the best part is, the whole book was just awesome, so full of "what's go ...more

Fire with Fire is the second book in the Demonblood Series. Having read and liked the first book I was happy to read the second as well.

The book starts after two months of where the last book ended. Keiron is out on a mission and hasn't returned yet nor has he communicated with Liora or Lucky. Liora is doubtful that Keiron will ever return to her. So when there's a new guy who shows some interest in her she can't help but return his affections. Lucky on the other hand is sure there is somethin

I have to say that this book is slightly better than it's predecessor. The author's writing improved tremendously, and the plot kept me on my toes the entire time. This book would suck you in from the first line.

Like the first book in the series, Fire with Fire is told in alternating POVs between Liora and her demon counterpart Lucky. Again, the author paced it perfectly and the switching of POVs didn't leave me hanging.

I just finished this book a couple of minutes ago and wow there were just too many emotions in one book. Really AMAZING. And it's not that icky vampire-loving sweetness either. Fire with fire was really moving and it was perfectly executed by the Author Penelope King. I am now a huge fan of her and I really wish that I can get my hands on the third book as well , but I feel fortunate enough to read book 1 and 2 and would not hesitate to spend on a complete set of this series.

Okay, so I finished this last night and I still am having a hard time coming up with what to say about this book. It was thrilling. It was emotional (I cried a couple of times). It was downright brilliant. One of the things I admire the most about this series is that it makes you look at predudice from a different angle. Demons are supposed to be bad, but in this series they are not; at least, not all of them are.

I love the characters Ms. King has fashioned, and I love the subtle play with emoti

I LOVED Fire with Fire this 2nd book in Penelope King’s Demonblood series and look forward to the further adventures of Liora/Lucky, Kieran, and Corinne.

Definitely not a standalone novel, the first book in the series, A Demon Made Me Do It, is a “must-read” before diving into this newest part of the story. Previous action is not re-hashed to bring a new reader up to the mark.

In this volume we get more information about the all-knowing and mysterious guardian, Tatiana. We get to spend some quali

I have just one word for this book. Fantastic!!! Penelope King continues to deliver with the second installment to this series. It has everything you could want in a story such as friendship, love , betrayal,twists and turns that will keep you guessing and an ending that will leaving you wanting more.

Fire with Fire begins two months after the last one left off. Keiron has been gone for those two months and has not contacted Liora/Lucky. They are both trying to deal with his absence in their own

"Fire with Fire" is the second installment of Penelope King's "Demonblood" series. I liked book one so much, that I just HAD TO buy this one and read it. And I wasn't disappointed one little bit.

A little warning here: This book has some adult content, not explicit, but nonetheless keep that in mind.

My review may contain some mild spoilers.

I was fortunate enough to receive the second book of this series as part of a Read and Review for my Shut Up and Read group. And I'm so glad I decided to participate!
So, I loved this book just as much as the first one. It kept me turning the pages and not wanting to put it down. I love when a book can do this: capture your attention so much that you really just need to find out what happens next.

I had read the first installment of this series for {Read It & Reap 55} in the Shut Up And Read group, and found it interesting. The second one, that got sent to me through the same group, I went through like a breeze. The story was compelling, and I kept being drawn back to it to read more, which is always a good sign in my case.

We already know the main characters from the first book, of course; we get to know them better here, as well as see some development that I was glad about. While Lu

Wow! Just…! Penelope King did it again! This story is just amazing. As soon as I started reading this story, I couldn’t put it down. It was a real page-turner for me.

Young Adult is not a genre that generally appeals to me, but this series is unbelievable and I can’t wait to read the rest of them. I have to know what happens next. This series is a bit edgier than most Young Adult novels that I’ve read. I think that’s one of the reasons it appeals to me so much, on top of the fantastic writin

After reading the first book, A Demon Made Me Do It, I immediately jumped at the chance to read this one and see how the story progressed. I wasn't disappointed. Penelope King is a talented author who I believe will only get better over the years. This book was fast-paced and full of action. It triggered different emotions at every turn--sometimes I was happy, sometimes outraged, sometimes sad. I hated Tristan from the beginning.

I literally devoured Fire With Fire.
Which probably was a bad idea, as I missed things that I shouldn't have.

But hot damn....I was Bones deprived!!

Book number two in Penelope King's Demonblood Series, Fire With Fire, definitely delivered! I completely devoured this book. Far too often, I find authors to be predictable. That cannot be said about Ms. King. As far as I'm concerned, this series is just getting better and better with each new secret that's exposed. The only downfall?? I have to wait until Summer to read the next book in this amazingly captivating series!

I received this books as part of a review on behalf of the author after reading the first book in the "Demonblood" series. It is an interesting concept of two souls inhabiting the one body and such complete opposites where a demon girl and a human girl both fall in love with the same guy Kieron. It makes an interesting threesome to say the least.I am really enjoying this series so far and have become invested in the characters especially Liora/Lucky and Kieron though Bones was a personal favouri ...more

Very good sequel! I enjoyed learning more about Lucky/Liora. What has happened to Kieron? Has he deserted her? Will she ever see him again? Something is happening to Lucky/Liora. She doesn't feel the same. She feels weaker. What could be causing that? To complicate matters, a new boy has started at Liora's school. He persists in being beside her. Tristan doesn't interest the beginning. Corrine begains to notice the changes in Liora.

I love finding a good book series, and this is DEFINITELY a great one! From page one I was so glad to see what my "old friends" were up to. I liked this book even better than the first in the series: "A Demon made me do it". So many delicious twists and turns I couldn't stop reading it. And just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, Bam! Something totally different happened. I cannot wait to read the next book!

After reading A Demon Made Me Do It, I was also fortunate enough to receive Fire with Fire c: The fact that both books were given to me in exchange for honest reviews has not affected my ratings.

Like A Demon Made Me Do It, Fire With Fire still features the same kick-ass heroine Lucky and "good girl" Liora. Everything I loved about A Demon Made Me Do It - the charming plot, Bones, relationships, action - was basically almost all there. So yes, I did enjoy this book c:

A worthy continuation of Lucky and Liora's tale. Fast paced, action packed and full of revelations, twists and turns. I love Penelope King's writing style, and found myself quickly pulled into the story. The finale was shocking and unexpected. There were some new characters introduced and some old ones forced to make an exit. As with book one the story alternated between Liora's and Lucky's POV, and I found myself wanting to stay more and more with Lucky because, for me, Liora pales in compariso ...more

Once again, King delivers!

This one is a follow up to King’s debut novel, A Demon Made Me Do It centering around a fractured soul. Liora is human by day, and at sundown the demon that shares her body takes over leaving Liora unaware of the building tension in the demon world.

Again King takes us on a thrilling ride with more peril and more love, though not in the ways we necessarily expected. Her ending does not disappoint and leaves us hoping for a quick release of the third installment. --HK Sav
