When Darby approached me to read and review her second installment to her paranormal series. I was thrilled. I loved the first one and definitely found it unique. But that was nearly a year ago so I started this book with only little recollection of the first book.
Griffin Fire is almost the perfect sequel to the series. The protagonist who looks like a teenage boy but has actually been "born" at 6 (if I remember correctly) to be trained to be an Angel (the book has a different term for them). The entire story was based on Griffin's (the protagonist) hardships after his test to because a full fledged Angel. His hate and anger towards himself and his mentor, Basil. Their relationship is almost like a father and son but in a more apprentice and mentor way, is completely heart warming that you can't help and go: Aww.
With every new installment there comes a new antagonist that gives our Griffin a big headache or in this case almost cost him his "love". Sergei is staying with Griffin and Basil for a few months and Sergei has it in for Griffin. He simply does not like him and wants to make his life a living hell. But near the end, you'll begin to warm up to him a little, okay, not really. But he gets what he deserves.
The ending was not what I expected. I was expecting this HUGE plot twist but nothing come. Hence, I'm a little disappointed but I still enjoyed this book completely.
Griffin's Fire is light, heart-warming story. It has light romance with funny moments as well as some action thrown in there. Its a perfect read for one sitting. Definitely recommended to those who like their reads short and fast. 4/5 stars.
