My Review:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Ghosts, Mystery, Romance, Supernatural, Suspense--

When Emily gets a strange feeling, she knows her twin sister is dead. When the police come to her door and confirm her worst fear, she needs to know what really happened to her sister. Working with an attractive police officer who believe foul play was involved, Emily assumes her sister's life to root out the truth.

This is the third book and second series I have read from this author and I have enjoyed them all. Her worlds have enough mystery and paranormal aspects to keep me guessing and engaged while still very much being a romance at their core. Reign of Fire was no different. This was an interesting, intense mystery/thriller read that had a touch of romance and paranormal. The story was a very fast listen, at less than six hours so I was able to immerse myself in the story and listen to it completely in one day (keep in mind that I also listen to my audiobooks at at least 1.5x speed since anything less is too slow). I enjoyed the plot the author created, with a secret society that was pulling all the strings in the government as well as lots of conspiracy. I will say that most of the romance occurred within 48 hours, with some of that time the main character was in the hospital, so to say it was a whirlwind (a sexy steamy whirlwind) would be an understatement (and as we learned from the movie Speed, relationships formed in intense situations may not last).

Where the romance may have resolved (in a positive way, don't worry!) the overall mystery and set up of the secret society still has so much more to be unmasked. I would love to read the next book in the series and see what lies in wait for the main character's brother, Wyatt. Overall this was a fast paced thriller perfect for anyone who likes conspiracy theories and ghostly intervention.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Casi McLean. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Award winning author, Casi McLean, pens novels to stir the soul with romance, suspense, and a sprinkle of magic. Her writing crosses genres from ethereal, captivating shorts with eerie twist endings to believable time slips, mystical plots, and sensual romantic suspense, like Beneath The Lake, WINNER: 2016 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence for BEST Romantic Suspense.

Casi's powerful memoir, Wingless Butterfly: Healing The Broken Child Within, shares an inspirational message of courage, tenacity, and hope, and displays her unique ability to excel in nonfiction and self-help as well as fiction. Known for enchanting stories with magical description, McLean entices readers in nonfiction as well with fascinating hooks to hold them captive in storylines they can't put down.

Her romance entwines strong, believable heroines with delicious hot heroes to tempt the deepest desires then fans the flames, sweeping readers into their innermost romantic fantasies.

You'll swear her time travel could happen, be mystified by her other worldly images, and feel heat of romantic suspense, but most of all you'll want more.
