Finding her past was supposed to end the nightmare. Only it was just the beginning.

Entrusting the fate of the world, not to mention her and Isaiah’s life to a father she’s never met is a big leap of faith on Fallon’s part. But it’s a necessary risk. Ashton is the key to protecting Isaiah and keeping her out of Garrison’s clutches. He is also the only one who can tell her what she is, except what she learns is that she is from a world that is far more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine.

As her powers grow out of control, Fallon must pick between her mortality and a legacy that does not include Isaiah. She must summon the courage to face a destiny that will test the boundaries of everything she has ever known. But most of all, she must protect Isaiah from the monster within herself and trust the man whose toxic blood runs through her veins.

Danger builds as power clashes between two evils, both seeking her to tip the scales to eternal darkness and suffering.

Can humanity rise to face an ancient calling to which Fallon is powerless to stop? Can she protect those she cares about, or will their blood forever stain her hands?

Touch Vengeance. Touch Malice. Touch Fire.


Holy frick!!! O.o I was so not expecting that! I really did not see Ms Phoenix taking the story in this direction. I was so surprised and I loved that! I hate when a story is predictable and you can guess what's gonna happen from the get go. But not this time. Oh no, this story is in no way predictable. There are so many twists and turns you have no idea what's gonna happen next. I really do applaud Ms Phoenix for her creativity and imaginative story-telling. There are so many new elements thrown into the mix this time around. How she comes up with them all I have no idea!  

Poor Fallon. That girl just cannot catch a break. Things keep going from bad to worse for her. My heart really breaks for the situation she is in. One she doesn't seem to have any control over. But at least she has Isaiah by her side. Can I make a suggestion? Isaiah is not allowed to wear a shirt ever again. I think all the ladies out there will agree with me on this :P I love that boy. Please Airicka, don't break my heart when it comes to him.
There are so many new characters introduced, one of my favourites being Archer. I just have a soft spot for the sarcastic ones :P 

This book has been a long time coming and I can honestly say it was well worth the wait. Full of heart-pounding action, sizzling romance, and so many new revelations you will be glued to the page! And that damn cliffhanger!! Ugh if I have to wait another year for book 3, me and Ms Phoenix will be having words! ;)
I cannot recommend this woman's books enough. They are just amazing!
