When her friend is sucked into a magical portal, she’s the only one with the power to help him. But what she uncovers is a danger greater than she’d ever imagined—and linked to her past in a way she’d never expect. Worse, the portal puts her whole town at risk. As the threat grows, she must confront her fear of losing control of her new powers, or lose any hope of saving hundreds of lives.
I really like Cass, but her budding romance with Aidan is seriously getting to be something the author just can't ignore. I mean constantly zipping from here to there and then maybe even somewhere in between and always you just know that if they could catch a break, just stop for a moment and explore the possibilities then this couple could be in for some serious commitment! So perhaps this just might be the instalment I've been waiting for but alas, you really will have to read it to find out!
Okay, I've addressed the possibility of their relationship firming up but what about the plot? Those who have read the previous instalments will realise that the Monster who originally imprisoned the three FireSouls is back and this time we get a lot more of their backgrounds fleshed out. The sisters (of the heart) have so far remained hidden but things seem to be changing and more Demons are showing up. As if that wasn't bad enough, a trusted friend is in deep doo doo but saving him will take a lot more fire power then Cass and Aidan have. Oh yes, Cass might still struggle with her powers but when it's obvious she needs to step up, you just know this brave young woman will confront anything, even her past!
First, can I just say how much I love the covers on this series. Then I really should comment on the fact that although I'm primarily a romance reader, it's the action and adventure that grips me here. I love the trials the characters face with unexpected adversaries and trust me, I will never look at tree roots quite the same way again! Plus, I love in the midst of the most dangerous moments, Cass clears her head and just simply carries on. She's a fabulous heroine paired up with Aidan who has to be the nicest guy on the planet, which might sound sickly sweet but just isn’t.
So, we do learn a lot more about Cass and the other FireSouls in Stolen Magic but the mean author, Linsey Hall, who wrote this gives even more breadcrumbs for us poor readers to follow! Frankly, I had wondered if this might turn into a trilogy but that's certainly not happening. A great story full of action and surprises and in my opinion suitable for readers of all ages.
