Review and Giveaway: Forbidden Fire by Kimberly Kinrade

"She escaped, but she'll never be free."

"Time held no meaning as my mind darted in and out of memories. Past and present collided to create a full-sensory collage out of my life: playing hide-n-seek with my best friends Luke--who always cheated by walking through walls when he was about to be caught--and Lucy; Mr. Caldrin critiquing my sketches and offering ideas to make them more realistic; targets changing faces, blending into the same person, their thoughts rippling through my mind like waves. Through it all, a demon stalked me from the shadows of my memories, never quite showing its face, but crouching, waiting. And then I dreamed...."

Sam and Drake may have escaped, but they aren't free—not with a powerful Seeker after them. As Sam struggles with the ethics of her new powers and embraces a blossoming physical relationship with Drake, Lucy and Luke face challenges of their own. With forces coalescing inside and outside the Rent-A-Kid dorms, it's only a matter of time before the fire they started forces each of them to make choices they can't undo. But will it be enough to save them?

My review:
Forbidden Fire is the second book in the Forbidden Trilogy. (See my review of Forbidden Mind here, and watch for my review of Forbidden Life in two weeks.)  In Forbidden Fire, Sam and Drake have escaped and are living under the radar in California. While they try to stay out of sight and come up with a plan to rescue the other Rent-A-Kids, they are struggling with more personal issues, like jealousy and ethics. Meanwhile, back at the ranch compound, Lucy and Luke are caught in a nightmare that just keeps getting worse as the Organization tightens its hold.

With unexpected revelations and an interesting twist, Forbidden Fire will keep you enthralled until the very last page. I read the whole thing in one sitting. Forbidden Life comes out today, and you can bet I'll be reading it as soon as I get my hands on it. I need to find out if Drake's common sense will overcome his pride. (He's such a typical male.)
