Finding her past was supposed to end the nightmare. Only it was just the beginning.

Entrusting the fate of the world, not to mention her and Isaiah’s life to a father she’s never met is a big leap of faith on Fallon’s part. But it’s a necessary risk. Ashton is the key to protecting Isaiah and keeping her out of Garrison’s clutches. He is also the only one who can tell her w

Well Worth The Wait

OH MY WOW!!! I do believe I used some other profound language when I finished Touching Fire, book #2 in the Touch Saga by the lovely Airicka Phoenix.

Let me start by saying this book was totally not where I was expecting Ms. Phoenix to take Fallon’s journey. It was so much more. Emotional, raw, and intense are three words that come to my mind when you ask me about Touching Fire.

Those of you that have read my reviews know that I really don’t like to give much away when it come

I really really really really really really can't wait.


We still have to wait for two whole months.. I HOPE.
Because a lot of stupid writers postpone the book's publish date.


That better not happen!

I will wait for you, Touching Fire!!

I was given an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest review....

In Touching Smoke we met Fallon and learned she is a more complex girl than anyone could have dreamt, including herself. The daughter of a human and a sin, she is now fighting to find her place - well, where she wants to be. Unfortunately, Garrison will not let her rest as he is determined to "own" her for his own purposes of world destruction. But what does dad say, well he too has his own does everyone in this st

First and foremost I want to yell at the author for the damn cliffhanger... not what I was expecting. You suck!

second, Fallon has come a long way, she's getting some confidence to her and is getting more powers, she understands now when her powers come into play.
Isaiah is her strength and could quite possibly be her destruction. I love these two kids. I am very hopeful for their future however Miss Phoenix has made it hard to figure out what their future may hold

Wow! The long awaited sequel to Touching Smoke is finally here and it is well worth the wait! Filled with action, beautiful descriptions, new worlds and characters and too many damn intimate scenes between Fallon and Isaiah - Airicka does good with the teasing- it's worth the read. It's well written and gorgeously described, I felt like I was actually living in Fallon's world. I felt like I was watching a movie or tv show, it was just that vivid. Now we'll have to wait a while for book 3 but I k ...more

I'm done. I can't read another sentence of this. Every once in a while you find a book and you think "hm, this seems interesting". And you're ready to just end the tiresome search for a good book. That's why I picked this up in the first place. The summary had me dying to get my hands on it.
The first book wasn't so bad. It started out slow which is fine. Every good book has to build up to that epic climax, so I don't mind waiting. Then, it ended on a cliff hanger. Again, patience is key. Ya kno
3.5 stars

I have a frustrated love with this book. I loved that it was different then a lot of the paranormal books I've been reading and there is lots of action. That being said Fallon annoyed me she seemed whiny, which is understandable to an extent she seemed week, which is realistic in a sense, however I know it is building up to one day her being bad a$$. Still, there where a lot of times when I wanted to say "Shut-up"! Yes, very unreasonable of me, I know.

Frustratingly so because of Fallon & Isiah's hot/cold/smoldering moments. Then I was full of questions along with Fallon yet with every new morsel of info. I found more added replacing the last. Of course she couldn't just lay it all out there easy peasy for us now could she? Where would the

Despite all of the four and five star reviews, I found "Touching Fire" to be one convoluted hot mess! This series started out with the theme of manipulation and of DNA within people to an extreme. Then, in book two it morphed into a different beast entirely. The author includes magical dimensions, demons, angels, Greek mythology, the Loch Ness monster, water nymphs and God knows what all else. Additionally, the editing errors in this book were ridiculous! With this being said, I moderately enjoy ...more

Before I begin, thanks Airicka for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Those blue eyes, gosh, I could stared at them for hours.

Three months of waiting and I'd finally got on hands on Touching Fire, I'm glad! The sequel is not a letdown, it has successfully sustain the standard set by the first book and even better. It's hard to review without any major spoilers but one thing to be sure, I like Fallon more and more. She's growing stronger both physically and mentally

Holy frick!!! O.o I was so not expecting that! I really did not see Ms Phoenix taking the story in this direction. I was so surprised and I loved that! I hate when a story is predictable and you can guess what's gonna happen from the get go. But not this time. Oh no, this story is in no way predictable. There are so many twists and turns you have no idea what's gonna happen next. I really do applaud Ms Phoenix for her creativity and imaginative story-telling. There are so many new elements throw ...more

Book 2 picks up one month after Fallon and Isaiah escaped Garrison’s clutches. Isaiah has convinced Fallon to contact her father, Ashton, to receive help. They have been on the move constantly, just one step ahead of Garrison’s men. When Fallon meets her father, she has no idea who he really is, or for that matter what she really is.
Oh my God I love this series. I can’t get enough of these characters, especially Fallon. The world building is incredibly. I can see the other worlds she creates an

This book was a more interesting read than the first one in this series, Touching Smoke, but how the heck does this one fit with the first book?! I only made it half way through this one. I tried really hard to love this book, but I just couldn't do it. The idea of them being Sins was fantastic, but it should've been introduced in the first book rather than randomly brought up in the second one. It feels as if the Touching Smoke and Touching Fire could be two completely seperate series. And not ...more

You know how you have that one book that you can't get out of your head? This is one of those books to me. It has all of my guilty pleasures into one book (vampires, evil scientists, and demons). This would have been a five if the plot wasn't so confusing. I understand that this book answers lots of questions that I had, but it also took a 180 turn from what I thought this series would be about. I thought it would be sci-fi all the way with awesome mutation and that Fallon was one of them.

Knocked it out of the ball park! Touching fire is absolutely an amazing story that had me spell bound from the moment I began reading to the very last page. There is so much going on that you will at times find yourself sitting in the edge of your seat ready to yell and scream at the book and other time that will pull at your heart and remind you how wonderful life really can be. I loved Touching fire for everything it was action packed fast paced with a touch of the mushy stuff. Whatever it is ...more

There's a lot going on here....She's a blood-thirsty mutant, a princess, a Rem, the catalyst to the apocalypse, a human, and probably more but I can't recall all of the titles she holds right now. This is a new author for me, so I'm not quite sure of her track-record of bringing it all together, but this is a great read! I'm on the edge of my seat, for sure! Couldn't put it down. Wish I would have check to see if the other books were available before I started reading this series. Anyone have an ...more

So after receiving an ARC copy of Airicka Phoenix’s Touching Smoke a few months back, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the second book, Touching Fire, to make its appearance. After a few false alarms, it finally got released on March 27, and I got around to reading it a few weeks ago. I was REALLY excited to read it because I loved the first one so much (see my review here), but I really had no thoughts on where the series was going to go after Fallon learned all about herself.

Airicka thank you so much for asking me to review this book. I gave it 5 stars because it was a fantastic continuation to what I am sure is going to be an amazing series. The book is full of twists and turns and the is-it-isnt it love triangle that seems to be developing both of which keep the reader hooked.

In this book we saw Fallon meet her Father Ashton for the first time after escaping from Garrison, the man who was responsible for creating her. We also find out that she is a Wrath Sin Fledg

I guess her sarcasm hasn't changed since the last book and I do still find it irritating but I understand that it is her coping mechanism. Then again I did not sympathize with her when she was coping with the situation regarding her father and she sounded like a whiny brat although she does admit her faults but she still does them. That's the only part I hate about this book.

The relationship between her and Isaiah kept getting better and better plus the scenes were steamy but totally frustrating

Touching Fire is the second book of the Touch series and it was excellent read! It was such a joy to continue the story of Fallon and Isaiah, some old (unfortunately mainly bad ones) and many new (some very much hot ones) characters that were just introduced in this book. I feel like there is so much more to know about them all, so now I can't wait to get my hands o

This one was a little bit different than the first book and took a fork in the road I was not expecting.

In this second addition the characters find themselves still on the run from everything and everyone imaginable, and in some cases, not even imaginable.

Fallon is place up against odds that are life changing, and hard to handle. She travels with her father to an interesting place and introduces Archer. I may not be a genius but I can see where THAT prize piece of info will be going in the nex

Just WOW!!

You know those authors who are beyond amazing at writing that you just wish you could camp outside their home and be the first to get the news on what they are working on and when you will be able to get you greedy stalkerish hands on their next work of art..? Ms. Phoenix is EXACTLY that type.

This series is incredible. So much is constantly happening and once you think you understand a few things a big something happens and everything changes. You even end up with 100 more questions on what the h3@# is going on with Fallon!! I wouldn't change any of it though. It's hard to find a book where you cannot anticipate it's every move. I love surprises an having to constantly try to see where everything is going and which side people are really on.

This is one of those series that takes forever to release, but when it releases you know your in for a VERY wild, plot twist infested ride. This was actually one of the FIRST books I've re-read. Please keep in mind that when I read a book, unless it means something to me or is signed, I usually never pick it up again. I LOVED that this was one of the exceptions.

Okay, so just so you know, I LOVE Airicka's writing! She always makes up the yummiest male leads and the surprises and twists in her books keep you guessing.

So, Fallon and Isaiah run into her father and a whole new world is opened up to them. Now Fallon is in even more danger than she was previously in and there are more threats against her life than you're able to count. This poor couple NEVER gets a seconds rest in this book as one thing after an

This book blew me away. It was nothing like what I was expecting, and with each new twist and turn the story became darker and even more terrifying. I was fully immersed in the story as Fallon uncovered her heritage, a complex web of lies and secrets, layer upon layer of surprising revelations that saw Fallon go from being a scientific experiment, to a powerful being with a destiny that could bring about the end of the world. It also showed that there were far more frightening things in this wor ...more

Touching Fire by Airicka Phoenix is a YA paranormal novel. It is the sequel to Touching Smoke....and boy did it take the story to a new level.
The story is well written and completely intriguing. This was definitely a could not put it down book. The plot was an intense roller coaster ride of thrills and surprises. Fallon learns more about her father and her creation - and the secrets are mind-blowing. I seriously do not know how Ms. Phoenix thinks some of this stuff up.
