Review: Witch Fire by Laura Powell

Witch Fire (Burn Mark, #2)Witch Fire (Burn Mark #2) by Laura Powell
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Release Date: June 4, 2013
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble
Lucas and Glory are hard at work in WICA (Witchkind Intelligence and Covert Affairs). As part of their training, they learn more about the witch-terrorist organization Endor. It is believed that Endor has infiltrated a boarding school for young witches in Switzerland, so WICA sends their two youngest agents—Lucas and Glory—to the school undercover. There, they learn more about an experimental brain implant that blocks the power of the fae. It’s a dangerous procedure . . . more so than they could ever have imagined
 
 My Thoughts:
These books just keep getting better and better!  I love a good mob story and Witch Fire manages to have this plus it adds the addition of witches, really what more could a girl ask for??

Witch Fire picks up with Gloria and Lucas both working for WICA and trying to find their place in this new world as registered witches. They both still aren't quite sure what their future holds, but they know that whatever it is they will be ready for it.  So when their next assignment shows up and it sends them to boarding school they realize that they may not be as ready as they thought. With many plot twists, interesting mob politics, and dynamic characters Witch Fire brings us another wonderful addition to what is becoming one of my favorite series'.

The one thing I will say is that if you haven't read the first book in the series you will need a refresher.  Laura Powell has created a very indepth world and I admit I had forgotten a lot of what happened in the first book.  You really need to know the characters and world that was created to truly appreciate what Powell has written in this one.  This story is very deep with secrets and there are so many people that will slip by that pop up later and you will go "oh wait wasn't that.." So make sure to have a notebook handy because you will want to keep notes.

I really loved Gloria and Lucas in this one.  I enjoyed them both in the previous books, but they were so much more in this one and I am beyond thrilled at how they end up. It was a very sweet romance that I have been wanting from the beginning.  We also get to see the resolution of something Gloria has wanted from the get go and even though I did wish for something a little different I can happily move on with what was written.

This story was so much fun and exactly what I was in the mood for.  I have a feeling I will be rereading these in the months to come!
