Not sure it can get better than a Fiery red head serving up demon on a platter!

Katie, you did it again. This book was awesome. I was never bored for a second! Truly a page turner. I am so amazed by your writing style! So full of detail. Great job!

P.S. Jax is total swoon worthy. :)

I give this book a 3, almost a 3 1/2.

This is the second book in the Dryad Quartet to tell the story of an orphan, but these two characters are as different as night and day. When I read Breath of Air, I knew I’d like to have a friend like Capri, but when it came to connecting with a character, Blythe would be the one to win me over. I like Blythe for so many reasons, but for some reasons I’ll try to explain, I didn’t like her story as much.

First off, I should say that I do like this

‘Firefight in Darkness’ is the second book in the Dryad Quartet, and is another wonderful piece of art that I find it hard to express just how much I loved it!

I loved reading from Blythe’s point of view, and it was such a dramatic change from Capri’s sweet and innocent narrative in ‘Breath of Air’, that I’m very impressed with how Katie Jennings managed to switch between the two narratives so flawlessly. I loved the differences in how I connected to the characters when switching to B

As intriguing and unique as was Breath of Air, Katie Jennings’ 1st book in the Dryad Quartet series (and, incidentally, her debut novel), her second installment, Firefight in Darkness, manages to impress even more. The two books, a contrasting study in both thematic expansion and literary chiasmus, highlights Jennings’ strength and flexibility as a writer.

The writing is fresh, polished and composed. The editing is very clean. The storyline is well done, a very nice and perfectly suspenseful arc w

Firefight in Darkness, the second installment to romantic and enchanting fantasy series "The Dryad Quartet", was a novel that pulled me in and held tight until the very end. After finishing "Breath of Air" I was so excited to start this novel since Blythe was my absolute favorite character in the previous book. She absolutely did not disappoint as a protagonist, and the way that she developed and progressed through the story without compromising the qualities that made me love her to begin was v ...more

Second in the series and so much better. I liked Breath of Air, the first in the Dryad Quartet, but I loved Firefight in Darkness. I love how everything was reversed for the two main characters. Capri grew up an orphan in the human world and then was thrown into the fae world. Blythe grew up with fae and was thrown into the human world. Capri had to learn everything from her long lost dad. Blythe had to teach everything to her long lost dad. Capri is timid and airy. Blythe is bold and fiery. ...more

I loved Breath of Air and eagerly dove into this book to see what happened next. Jennings didn't disappoint. Although Blythe isn't my favorite character, I still liked getting to see things from her point of view. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to revisit the characters again and Jennings made sure to touch on all of them at some point in the book. Blythe herself is a little too high strung and emotional for me and at times it just seemed a bit over the top, which is why this book gets a four star ...more

At first I was a little thrown by the fact that this book focuses on Blythe instead of Capri, but then I got into it and I enjoyed it as much as the first book in the series. Blythe is fierce and feisty. This book is full of action, romance, danger, and demons. It was a fun ride and I especially liked the big fight toward the end. There is a lot of cursing in it, however, so if you find that offensive you might want to pass this one by.

Book two of the Dryad Quartet is about feisty and full of attitude Blythe who has the power of fire. She must deal with feelings about her father while wanting revenge on a powerful demon. Blythe must work with the handsome Jax, demon hunter to hunt down the demon.
Full of adventure and passion "Firefight in Darkness" can stand alone but proves to be a great companion the "Breath of Air."

Nice follow up book to Breath of Air....again an easy read and a really great summer book. Read Breath of Air first...the book stands on it own but if you're going to read it you might as well read them in order and understand how the characters develop to the point where Firefight in Darkness begins.

I liked Breath of Air, but it was much slower paced than the second. I Love Blythe and Jax. I was happy to see Blythe figure out who Bristol really was. Wish we could have more of their story!
