POV: First Person
Betrayal has ripped apart Aedan’s House and its enemies smell blood in the water.
Aedan is missing and the strongest vampire House in America is in shambles. What was supposed to be the perfect ending to an amazing night has ended in chaos, fear, and death; setting events in motion that will challenge even the strongest of bonds. Lara must do the impossible: find Aedan, keep the sharks at bay, help her best friend stay sane, and gain enough power to stop a supernatural war from starting, because it if does, humanity will certainly be dragged into it. With her allies reeling, help comes from unlikely sources, but is it too late to stop what has already begun?

I think this is my favorite book in the series so far. Lara steps up her game and is starting to become the faerie she was meant to be. I think she’s more than even she knows. Her powers grow every day and after her trip with her grandmother they seem to be almost endless.
Aedan seems to always be one step behind. Every time it appears that he makes a decision to move things forward with Lara something bad happens that interferes with his plan. He needs to learn to live in the moment and cherish each and every second he has with her.
As for everything else…her Guardian is kind of hilarious at times. The members of Aedan’s house are half scheming and half sincere, it’s troubling to see who is who. Her grandmother is a tad bit insane. And the doctor, he’s kind of incredible. If Aedan wasn’t in the picture I’d be voting for him to win the girl.
“I’m sorry, Goddess, I mean, Dani, I’m a bit slow. Can you please tell me what you’re talking about and use very small words and possibly pictures? Can I sit? Yes, I need to sit.”
In House of Fire you see much change in Lara and every new little bit pulls you in deeper. It’s a combination of her power and her innocence that makes her so likeable. You want to cheer when she succeeds. You want to scream when she’s hurt. And you want to strangle Aedan for his ability to keep stopping after teasing.
I’m loving the Healer Series and I cannot wait to see what comes next. Of course that may have something to do with the fact that it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger. You learn a little about everyone in this book and are left wondering if you think you have it right or if someone else is hiding in the shadows you’d never have expected. Either way, I’m looking forward to finding out.
