The first one was full of petty little revenge plots against Alex for what they thought he'd done to Kat and Lillia's sister. It was quite fun and I got dragged into the story.
This one started off as revenge but turned a little more happy with a blossoming romance. But then that end bit, first with Mary and her little secret, and then Rennie, and then Mary again vowing more revenge. Ugh! Dark and depressing.
Since its a trilogy, I have to read the last book to see how it ends.
A melhor parte do livro é o quanto é fácil ler e o quanto é difícil parar de ler! O livro é simplesmente viciante! Li trezentas páginas em um dia e terminei no outro (o que já tinha feito várias vezes antes, mas dessa vez foi no meio de uma mudança, o que é impressionante, admite). E, sim, vou direto para o terceiro! Adoro livros viciantes assim!
Outra coisa que eu gostei bastante nesse foi um ship que apareceu aí. Eu não gosto muito de nenhuma das três protagonistas, mas o ship me fez ir atrás do ponto de vista de uma pelos capítulos. O problema é que faltou para as outras (principalmente a Kat). Os personagens são uma mistura de clichês com profundidade que eu gosto de ver em livros adolescentes! Amei ver como o Reeve cresceu, porque eu odiava ele no primeiro e agora adoro! Mas o Alex foi completamente ignorado e mal tratado pelas autoras nesse! Parece que ele deu vários passos para trás desde o primeiro livro e eu espero do fundo do meu coração que compensem isso no último livro.
Mas existem realmente duas coisas principais que me incomodaram muito nesse livro. Primeiro, a escrita. Nunca vi uma escrita profissional tão corrida! Às vezes, tive a impressão de estar lendo uma peça de teatro! Outras, um resumo. Tudo bem as autoras não quererem gastar tempo com cenas não importantes, mas não achei que a narração foi bem construída em volta desse propósito. Ficou só corrido mesmo.
Eu já estava decidida a tirar pelo menos uma estrela por isso, mas a pior parte do livro me fez tirar outra. Ou seja, toda a questão sobrenatural. Primeiro que isso deveria ter sido avisado sim pelas sinopses. Eu não tenho nada contra (como muitas pessoas que não podem ler certas coisas pela sua religião), mas quando eu pego um livro contemporâneo para ler, estou fugindo da fantasia. Eu não quero nada paranormal aqui. Ainda mais quando não encaixa em mais nada!
Ficou forçado, bem tosco e, o pior, eu descobri a revelação antes de ela chegar e estava torcendo com todas as minhas forças para não ser como achava que seria (foi).
Claro que vou ler o próximo livro, que deve ser tão viciante quanto os anteriores, mas, meu Deus, que erro que foi essa parte sobrenatural aqui, que jeito de estragar uma história que, até então, estava incrível.
Dann hecken die drei Mädchen einen weiteren Racheplan aus. Mary hat bemerkt, dass Reeve insgeheim in Lillia verliebt ist und nun soll diese ihm Hoffnungen machen und ihm nachher das Herz brechen. Ab diesem Zeitpunkt und fast den ganzen Rest des Buches habe ich es wieder vollkommen genossen und konnte gar nicht schnell genug erfahren, wie es weitergeht.
Reeve ist ja ein Charakter, den wir bisher nur von der Schlechtesten Seite kennen gelernt haben. Soweit wir wissen ist er egoistisch, kümmert sich nicht um andere und ist nur auf seinen eigenen Vorteil bedacht. Dazu kommt noch das, was er Mary angetan hat. Dadurch, dass Lillia sich ihm annähert, lernen wir aber eine ganz neue Seite an ihm kennen, die verletzlich ist und viel freundlicher. Der Mittelteil hat mir eigentlich hauptsächlich wegen der Beziehung, die sich zwischen den beiden entwickelt, so gut gefallen. Plötzlich konnte ich Reeve doch etwas abgewinnen und wollte, dass Lillia und er eine Chance haben, auch wenn es in gewisser Weise ein Betrug an Mary ist. In diesem Dilemma steckt Lillia auch nach einer Weile, wie könnte es anders sein.
Und dann ist da noch die Sache mit Mary – bzw. das Ende. Schon beim ersten Buch dieser Reihe war mir das Ende zu durcheinander und zu schnell. Hier ging es mir ähnlich. Gegen Ende gibt es eine sehr überraschende Wendung, die mich sehr schockiert hat und ab da gab es dann immer wieder so 1 ½-Seiten-Kapitel, die mich total verwirrt haben. Ich wusste überhaupt nicht mehr, was los ist und hatte nur noch Fragezeichen im Kopf.
Allerdings hat mir das Ende trotzdem gefallen, es ist irgendwie echt episch. Natürlich bin ich jetzt wahnsinnig gespannt auf den abschließenden Band der Trilogie.
Auch wenn mich der erste Band der Reihe mehr begeistern konnte, hat Fire with Fire definitiv seine eigenen Qualitäten. Gerade das Ende ist irgendwie auf seine Weise Hammer und man denkt auf jeden Fall noch länger darüber nach. Ich bin froh, dass Ashes to Ashes noch diesen Monat erscheint, denn ich muss unbedingt ein paar Antworten haben.
Ich muss sagen das Buch hat mich sehr überrascht. Figuren die ich in "Burn for Burn" nicht leiden konnte waren mir plötzlich sympathisch oder ich hatte Mitleid mit ihnen. Kat, Mary und Lillia waren richtig gehässig zu Reeve, ich weiß er ist ein Idot, aber jeder hat mal so eine Phase und ich hatte richtig Mitleid mit ihm.
Mary mag ich ja, aber ich finde sie benimmt sich wie ein kranker Storker. Sie muss die Vergangenheit doch irgendwann mal ruhen lassen, Reeve kann nun mal nichts dafür das er sie nicht lieb und das sie in Reeve verliebt ist sieht sogar ein blinder. Lillia spielt ganz schön mit dem Feuer und ich mochte sie in diesem Band nicht mehr so recht leiden.
Alex tut mir so leid, er hat was besseres als Lillia verdient. Ich fand er und Kat waren so ein tolles Paar, hoffentlich finden sie noch zueinander. Wer mir in diesem Band besonders positiv aufgefallen ist war Pat, Kat's Bruder. Ich hoffe er kommt noch öfter vor, er is so niedlich. Rennie war mal wieder eine Hexe, aber was sie am Ende bekommen hat war mehr als selbst sie verdient hat. Das Szene mit ihr und Kat auf der Party fand ich so traurig.
Fazit: "Fire with Fire" war sehr spanned, voller Action und das Ende war einfach nur WOW!! Das Cover ist wieder sehr schön und das Buch hat sich wieder super flüssig lesen lassen. Die Figuren waren toll und die paranormalen Elemente haben der Geschichte noch mal einen Aufschwung gegeben!! Band 3 kann kommen!!
Dieses Teil ist etwas heftiger als das Erste. Noch besser und spannender.
Kann es nur empfehlen.
After enjoying the first book in this trilogy ‘Burn for Burn’ despite its immature narrative tone, I was eager to see where all the elements that were introduced in the debut were going… and well, ‘Fire With Fire’ took an unexpected turn - and I loved it! I felt this book was much better than the first. Having established all the characters in the first book, there was no confusion over who was who. We also got many of the plot elements developed further or answered in ‘Fire With Fire.’
There are a few turn-abouts with the characters which are executed deliciously. It follows suit of the first novel with the main trio of characters unveiling a different point of view to reveal an alternate opinion on their group of friends (and frenimies). I was a little frustrated with how the facts (and the reasons Lillia, Kat, and Mary began their little pact) were forgotten, or became blurry, the more convoluted their situation became.
We don't get the numerous flashbacks like in the first novel either, which was a welcome change.
The paranormal element gets heavily explored here too - and I loved it. It was hands down my favourite part of the book. I can confidently say ‘Fire with Fire’ does not suffer middle-book-syndrome. It felt more complete to me than the debut.
I'm getting really frustrated with Lillia, she got date raped in the past from drinking and hanging out with randy teenage boys - and then keeps repeating that behaviour. No-one deserves to be drugged and sexually assaulted, but it seems like she hasn't learnt her lesson and intentionally putting herself in a position for it to happen again. Dumb.
Lillia is my uptight drama queen. And although she can annoy the crap out of me at times, her antics and personality really pad out the narrative.
Excited about the exploration of Mary's character, but am still on the fence about her storyline - I wanted more face time with her - it was a little brief and left me feeling like I'd only scratched the surface.
Kat's character still felt like she did in the first novel, even though she's meant to be edgy, maybe a bit gothic, I found her a little vanilla.
The pacing was also much better - but in saying that, there were also a few spots that really dragged. The writing style felt like it had improved from the debut - it didn't feel as flat. Though, we don't get as much of the comedic elements as we did in ‘Burn for Burn.’ Neither did we see much of Nadia (Lillias little sister) and that familial dynamic Han writes so well.
It was nice to read towards the end how the main cast were acting a little more responsibly and having realistic reactions to things that had both happened, and we're currently happening.
The cliff-hanger (and ending of the novel) threw me, and I did not see it coming in a million years! It has me gagging for the final book in the series ‘Ashes to Ashes.’ Packaged with beautiful cover art, a diverse cast, a contemporary story line with a paranormal edge, this series has spacious typesetting and large font aiding to its overall aesthetic and ease of completion.
Another quick read, despite its 517 pages. I spread it out over 2 sittings and 2 days, but could have easily completed it in one. I was dubious about this series at the start, but am coming to love it now. Let's hope ‘Ashes for Ashes’ can bring it on home!
At the start of the novel, the main characters hadn't really changed much since Burn for Burn, but mostly because the Fire with Fire picks up pretty much right where Burn for Burn ended. As the book progresses, readers are able to pick up on subtle changes with the main characters, Kat, Lillia, and Mary. Kat begins to understand that there are things she'll never be able to change, and I thought she kind of softened a little bit, at least when she's with Lillia and Mary. Lillia really starts to open up and deal with some of the things that have bothered her. Mary. . . well at first, she seems like she's only changing a little, but she's probably the only one of the three to really change, and it's intense.
As for the supporting characters, I was really surprised with Reeve. I went from hating him in Burn for Burn to kind of liking him in this book. I really like Alex. I think he's a sweetheart, and I'd like to learn a little bit more about him in the next book. My feelings for Rennie didn't change. I still strongly dislike her. By the end of the book, I was more curious and ready to see how things play out in Fire with Fire.
Just like with Burn for Burn, the writing is just fine. It's really nothing spectacular, but it's entertaining enough to keep me interested and reading. That's all I can really ask of with writing. I really like the narrations of Lillia and Mary. I feel like those are the strongest chapters in the book. Kat is just a little on the boring side for me, and it's sad because she's such a cool character. I just wish that her narration lived up to how I see her in my mind.
All in all, Fire with Fire is a a pretty good book. It keeps readers interested with the three very different characters coming together for a cause. I love how it still has a contemporary feel, even though there is definitely something more paranormal going on in the book. I'd recommend this to readers who want to try paranormal but may be scared of the genre.
