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 πŸ™‚ 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)!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Lorelei King / Length: 10 hrs and 7 mins

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.

  1. You didn’t like Adam?!? What??? LOL I can’t wait to get to this installment, Felicia. But I’m behind and just reading Frost Burned this month. I’ll catch up though. I love this series. I started with this one first and just in the last 6 months or so started Charles and Anna…who, I think, I actually love more! Great review!

  2. That happened to me when I got the eArc of Molly Harper’s Better Homes and Hauntings- I was so excited to get an ARC of hers that I failed to realize how upsetting it would be to not listen to Amanda Ronconi narrate it. It was still good, of course, but it just didn’t feel right.

  3. I’m so happy you’re finally seeing how amazing Adam is, Felicia! I met Charles and Bran before Adam, too, but I still loved Adam from the start, for exactly the reason you mentioned. He really lets Mercy shine, and he trusts in her abilities.
    I haven’t listened to any of these, maybe that should be remedied?
    I hope you’re having a fantastic week!

  4. Seems like I’m the odd one out. I didn’t love this one and almost DNF it. It must have been my mood. I plan on doing a series reread before the next release and maybe the second time around I’ll enjoy it more.

  5. So glad you liked it! Even though I was team Mercy and Samuel I always liked Adam, there was just something about him. But the scene you’re talking about was a long time coming and I hate that it took till this book for it to happen, but I think in a way it made Mercy a stronger character for it. I don’t know…Great review by the way πŸ˜‰

  6. Agreed. The scene where Adam lays down the law endeared him to me. I can’t wait to see what happens next with this series. I hope the wait isn’t too long.

  7. I love this one too! I love how the pack is diversifying. It’s fat becoming a supernatural sampler. And I keep on trying to imagine Adam’s house. I’m falling short but I sure would like to see a close visual of what it looks like.

  8. YES FELICIA! I’ve always been a fan of Adam ( AND CHARLES AND BRAN!!!!!), but he’d been bothering me the past few books because he didn’t seem to be as supportive of Mercy with the pack (and Christy) as I hoped he would be, but after reading this one I understand why and it makes complete sense. He was being supportive, just not in the way I thought. I love that he put his foot down with the pack finally though!

  9. I so loved this book. I think it might be my favorite in the series. I loved that Mercy had to deal with the multi-level marketer. If you’ve ever dealt with one, you completely feel her pain. I also loved Adam and how he handled things here. Overdue, but better late than never. There are people upset with Bran, but I’m not. Charles is still my favorite too.
