Determined to keep Caleb safe, Sam fights a battle where
she is both the enemy and the prize, but victory will come
at a deadly price."
I loved this book! So action packed, Burning Emerald is awesome!
What I liked about this book, is the tension between the characters. What started off as a match made in heaven, the reader now sense the problems arising between them. I like this. It makes the characters easy for the reader to understand the characters. Jealousy and mistrust, leads the reads down a road of unanswered questions and raging war about ready to explode.
The plot itself is interesting. I didn’t think that there will be a love triangle, but not really. It’s hard for me to explain this since I will be giving a major spoiler away if you haven’t read the book. Let just say, that Sam’s is in for a very interesting time of her life.
The best of the part, I felt was the end. I really like who like that little plot twist made me want more. It definitly left me hanging and so excited to read the next book.
Burning Emerald has so much action in it. The heroic aspect of it makes me root for Sam even more. The plot races forward as Sam is on limited time to save the one she loves. The thrilling journey to solve the mystery of the Cambion chases the reader to read till the end. The dark fantasy that Burning Emerald gives is great!
I give it 4 BITES!
