5*Review: INCENDIARY by Amy A. Bartol

Title: Incendiary

Author: Amy A. Bartol

Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on my cheeks as I emerge from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling my dark pea coat tighter to my body, the wind lifts red tendrils of my hair. I walk slowly to the railing overlooking the water.

I catch my first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes me shiver in dread. I find it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it. The cold, moss-covered edifices practically scream their presence. As I study the shadows between the falling-down stone, I imagine creeping shapes of undead Faeries grasping the rock, waiting for our ship to draw nearer to their position.

Tipping my face up, I let the rain wash over me. It bathes away the frigid sweat of fear that has broken on my brow. "You don't know how fiercely beautiful you are, do you?" A quiet voice behind me asks, causing me to stiffen and fix my eyes on the rocks along the shoreline.

My take…

I want to be the shelter from the storm for him, but I’m the storm. I have a tangled crown upon my brow, an unwilling queen. I’m a tragedy in the making. The phantom ribbon binding my heart to Reed’s violently rejects such thoughts; it tightens painfully. I’ll fight anyone who tries to keep us apart, anyone who tries to hurt him again. But what if it’s me who hurts him again?

Ok, if you read my last review, please erase it from your memory. I wanted to love Brennus, but dude is straight up crazy and so not in love with our Evie. The way he acts...all his actions...he just cannot love her. I guess he is in love with the idea of being in love with her and how she makes him feel. So somewhere in his cold, dead heart he believes it to be love. I was so mad at him for getting me to care for him in book 3 only to turn around and break my heart into tragic little pieces. Such an A-hole move on his part.

We get some new characters that turns Evie’s world upside down, an angel emerges that shakes Russell to his innermost core, a whole lot of back and forth with Brennus and a bunch of craziness to the likes of which we have not yet seen. This book had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish and it was phenomenal. 5 Stars!
