First Thought when Finished: Fire Touched really delivered! It closed up some stories and opened up a whole mess of things to come!
Quick Thoughts: This story had to happen and I was so glad with the way it went down. I can’t really say much without giving it away. There is a moment in this book that you are going to want to listen/read a few times. I was not much of an Adam fan before this book but now I get what Mercy sees in him. I still like Charles and Bran better but they stole my heart first. This was a book where Adam shined and mostly through his complete acceptance of Mercy as she is (that is not a spoiler because I think he has been doing that–I just didn’t see it till this book). If you are a fan of this series: you won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t started this series: what are you waiting for? Other than Adam, I really liked how the story-lines blossomed for every person and how the pack grew. I think we are in for some wild times ahead 🙂 Also WTG B.Y.–I mean a girl has to make money (inside joke read the book to find out why that is so funny)!

This is the first book that I have mostly read and it was hard for me y’all. Brilliance was behind on getting me the review copy and I was first in line at the library for the ebook (Yes I check the library every day to see if I need to put a pre-order on hold). Normally I read this series after listening the first time, this time I kind of flipped the script. I missed Lorelei in my head as Mercy. I really enjoy these in audio and recommend them.
