One reckless move could cost her everything…

It used to be easy to pass as human beat cop Essie Shaw. Lay low, don’t draw too much attention. Now I’m hiding in plain sight, working for the JP, praying my teammates won’t notice my non-human magical quirks and figure out I’m a nephilim.

As the magic clawing within me threatens to reveal me, my complicated emotional bond

Good

The repeated waffling about “oh im a weak human, blah blah blah” grated on the nerves. Because she knows shes not human. At a certain point, three books in, just get over it and find a new source of angst. Not revealing her powers or fear of being discovered and killed was more interesting of a motivation that got sidelined in all the wussy “ im weak and a liability and ill get them killed” whining.

4.5 - ku. Awesome series!

Book 3 took the events of the first 2 and slammed it into overdrive! Not only is Essie still struggling to contain her ever growing powers while still hiding her heritage, she is bouncing along the threads of emotional and spiritual bonds the likes angels literally sing about.

Pros:
- well written
- completely new concepts on familiar themes
- Essie, she’s awesome
- Building plot crescendo

Cons:
- a few minor editing issues, did not detract
- Book 4 release date not set

ONE LINE REVIEW

An improvement over the previous instalments, but I still find it crazy that Essie and her men really know so little about each other - she doesn't know about anybody's family, past life, NOTHING.

The same formula from books 1 and 2 is getting a little old. I’d like the fast paced action to slow down. A little more relationship building and training for Essie would be good, they keep throwing her into the deep end and expecting her know what to do!
The same themes are being repeated, “I’m a monster” “he won’t want me once he finds out”

”My buzz eased, but the grating tension grew. This was going to be a problem if we didn’t get this solved soon.”

“One day. That was all I wanted. One day

I seriously could not stop reading this book! Let's just say that Jacob and Gideon finally join the harem, and it is wonderful! Also, one heck of a cliffhanger, which sucks, but the next book releases in nine days. I swooned over Kol (he's won me over) and his date (more or less) with Essie. Essie's powers are behaving weirdly at the moment, which I'm curious about, as well. I liked the tension Cassius added to the book. He gave the guys and Essie a bit of a push in their relationships, and to ...more

While Gideon redeems himself (who would have ever thought that him being so cold to Essie really meant that he LOOOVEEED HER... oh right, everyone.). Yeah, the “I-hate-you-and-treat-you-like-crap-because-I-love-you-secretly” trope is in full effect with this book.

And yet, I will say that this book brought about a little more satisfaction than the previous books, as the relationships seem to be solidifying themselves. Also, Marcus is sharing nicely like a big wolf. But I still can’t get past

ORIGINAL POST
So much of this was just more of the same repeated internal dilemmas from the previous books, so it felt like nothing new was happening. Even though some things changed, I didn't really feel like the story was making progress until the huge cliffhanger at the end, which was pretty frustrating. Full review to come.

UPDATE
A few observations from my Kindle notes:
1. I thought the dream at the beginning of this book was pretty tedious.

2. I disliked how invested Essie seemed in what

Destined to break my heart!

I needed to take the day to actually be able to wrote this review. This book tore me up at the end. The author has painstakingly built relationships between the protagonist and the men, but the secret she's been hiding from them is just destined to tear them apart. I was biting my nails, just waiting for the big reveal. I'm so happy the turnover between books in this series is relatively short or I think my heart would be dried up and useless, and I would be a phantom

The Cliffhanger!

I am dying right now.. waited up all night to read this and finished at 5:30am. This book did not disappoint me in the least! I'm so glad Gideon finally got his crap together.. and everything was looking amazing until that ending.. I wont say why so I dont spoil it but I was hoping everyone would be more receptive to the idea and that definitely doesnt appear to be the case. All my heart strings were pulled in this book and I'm litterally dying for the next one. Ugh I need some

The third book in the series begins with Essie trying to keep her place on the team, and figure out what is going on with her powers. She's changing and she doesn't understand why, and she needs to keep it a secret. However, that is easier said than done.

This one ends on a crazy cliffhanger and makes you very interested in reading more. I enjoyed this one a lot more than the others, and I liked how Essie acted in this one.

Destined Fire is book 3 of the Nephilim's Destiny series. Just like potato chips, you can't consume just one: I gorged three books in two days. This third book gifted readers with a few nice plot twists and a great storyline--the introduction of Cassius added some great tension. Lots of action, excellent character and relationship development.

Strangeness

Wow what a cliffhanger. Essie shouldn't be able to survive all that her and the team are put through. On top of everything is the secret she must keep from everyone. I still find it strange that nephilim are supposed to be impossible without evil magic. I am letting that go and focusing on her relationship with the team. I like that she is getting closer to them.

Addicting BUT.....

Ugh! So on my last review I said there was no cliff hangers well I had to eat my words because this book does! I'm can't wait for the next book.
They finally know her big secret and just before she was trying to make it work with everyone. Damn. More drama and romance.

id have gave this book a 5 but the ending made me scream at my computer monitor.... And she keeps talking about how weak she is and that shes a human but she knows shes not? the ending made me so sad because no matter what if these men love her like they say they do then they should except her just the way she is shes been in so much pain and now i have no idea whats gonna happen next!!!!

Like walking on a tight rop

So suspenseful and action packed. I can’t get enough of this series. Totally captures you and hard to put down. You can feel the desperation, the love and the fierce protectiveness Essie has for the team. Even though her relationship with Kol is still unknown. That ending is definitely the most hold your breath cliffhanger ever.

Oh snap!

Oh snap! That ending was absolutely terrifying and thrilling and awful and awesome and ugh! So not fair, thank goodness all these books are out of I would be throwing the most epic fit to end all the fits. Poor Essie can't catch a dang break and I'm losing my mind so this review is done... next book please!

Just keeps getting better!

Loved this! Read it in one sitting. The ending leaves you on a Huge cliffhanger though. And February seems really far off right now.
Great series I'm definitely continuing on with!

Finally!

This book had a whole lot of "about time" relief in it. Both Jacob and Gideon made me happy. Gideon is a romantic. Seriously. I get why he behaved the way he did now even though he was hurting the both of them. That ending, though! Waiting for February is going to suck.

Waited too long to reveal Essie

This was a gripping story, but too much with the fire and crackle under Essie's skin, the team under unrelenting attack and how are any of them able to walk?! Will read the next one to close the loop.

Good but slow

I am enjoying this story however I find it is moving slow. I feel the author at some times is just writing to bulk the story out and not adding to the content, repeating information over and over again. Will still reading but hope it gets better.

Good read

Poor Esse has had it rough. She is living with a huge secret and when it gets out, I can see all hell breaking loose. I can't wait to see how things work out in the next one.

Holy cliffhanger Batman! Another brilliant read in this series, and of course the book ends with something happening that Essie has been fearing since the beginning. I can’t wait for the next one! Highly recommend.

How much can one girl handle? Essie is tough as nails, but I'm wondering if even SHE can survive that ending? Worth the read. Love the series!

Goodness gracious me, this series is ramping up!
Drama, intrigue, suspense and one hell of a cliff hanger.
I'm obsessed.
