Definitely liked this second book of the series better than the first, which is rare. Much more fluid of a story line!

I actually read the House of Fire and it's preceding novel House of Steel back to back so forgive me if I'm a little vague on the details here. Since I read them so close together I am having a hard time separating the two because the author Raen Smith wrote them in such a way that I thought the transition between the two was wonderful.

This novel again has Delaney the heroine from the first novel House of Steel to the front of a suspense filled sequel. Just like in the first novel Delaney is tr

This book was so intense! It is definitely a suspense novel because the suspense was never-ending.

So many secrets came out, a past you would not believe was revealed (I cried), a man trying so hard to be redeemed, but still just so bad and doing things the wrong way time and again, and two kick-ass girls trying to get to the bottom of it and end all the insanity.

The second book in this series was a lot more personal than the first book. In the first, Delaney was dealing with demons on the outs

O. M. G. If you read The first book, House_of_Steel, you were left hanging with tons of questions of the unknown. Well this book House Of Fire, answers those questions... I stayed on the edge of my seat the whole time I read it, BIG surprises in the truth. Things you thought you figured out... Nope, you were wrong. As V comes back to avenge all the deaths her daddy has caused, she also brings back some uncovered secrets that add more to the questions: What does Holston want with Delaney and Ann, ...more

Wow. Just wow. This was one intense book. It didn’t take long at all for the action to ramp up and, just like in the first book (possibly even more so!), the tension just kept building and building until you thought you were going to burst. There were a few times when I could easily predict what was going to happen next, but for each point I figured out the author threw me at least three curveballs. I really liked the fact that Delaney wasn’t taking anything lying down. She really grew into her ...more

In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

I hadn't read the first book, and it seems very necessary to understand this one. I spent the first half of the book trying to understand what went on previously. The second half of the book I read to finish as more of a moral obligation to the spirit of Goodreads. I didn't like the characters very much. The story dragged in some places.
I hate to write a bad review but this book was definitely not for

Reviewed by Iva Readit for Kota's Book Kollection

"Once again the story weaves a web of intrigue that has you unable to put the book down. Tension builds slowly in the beginning chapters but by the end of the book you are ready to combust. The ending is spectacular giving the reader enough to feel satisfied with the conclusion but still hungry enough to want to read a little more." - Iva

I was so excited for this book, as House of Steel left me wanting to know what was going to happen. This book answered all my questions, plus gave some answers I didn't even know I wanted. It also gave a great deal of character development. I liked that the author waited until the second book to do that. The creativity it took to create the story line in this series is astounding. I am very curious where this all takes us with the next book. Looking forward to what Raen Smith produces next!

House of Fire is Raen Smith's second book in the Unraveled series. House of Fire is an action-packed, page-turning, don't want to put it down kind of book. It's fun to follow Smith's cast of characters through their harrowing adventures.

See my review for House of Steel. Raen is a very talented writer and her development of her many characters in this story is wonderful. I loved the suspense and the guessing of a who dunit and who is involved game that this story delivers. I cant wait to read more from this author.

Really actually enjoyed this, very different to what I normally read.

Well written & allows you to follow the storyline & try to figure out what is happening.

I did have a couple of tears whilst reading as it was so sad in parts.

Well worth a read tho ....

I enjoyed the second installment of this series. More of the story unravels, questions are answered and you finally find out everything you need to know.

Loved this book more than the first! A fast-paced read that picks up where book one left off. Many twists and turns and love connections all tied together in a firey little package.
