Review and character Bio: Incendiary by Amy A. Bartol.

Wow! I'm so excited to introduce you to this amazing book, this is the 4th instalment in The Premonition Series which is a MUST  for paranormal lovers :)

INCENDIARY by Amy A. Bartol

Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on my cheeks as I emerge from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling my dark pea coat tighter to my body, the wind lifts red tendrils of my hair. I walk slowly to the railing overlooking the water.

I catch my first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes me shiver in dread. I find it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it. The cold, moss-covered edifices practically scream their presence. As I study the shadows between the falling-down stone, I imagine creeping shapes of undead Faeries grasping the rock, waiting for our ship to draw nearer to their position.

Tipping my face up, I let the rain wash over me. It bathes away the frigid sweat of fear that has broken on my brow. "You don't know how fiercely beautiful you are, do you?" A quiet voice behind me asks, causing me to stiffen and fix my eyes on the rocks along the shoreline.

Character Bio:


Reed pretends to be a wealthy, sophomore college student whose family is a major contributor to Crestwood College.  It’s just a façade, however, because he’s really a divine assassin angel.  He’s of the class called “Powers,” which are the military division of angels that are ordered to annihilate fallen angels.  Reed is extremely intelligent, harrowingly strong, and exquisitely handsome.  He, like most Powers, had limited emotions, but that changes when Evie enters his life.  Now he’s experiencing love and raw desire for Evie, emotions that leave him feeling lost.  His life was one of secrecy and isolation. He’s forbidden to reveal himself as an angel to humans so when he discovers Evie and finds that she is half human and half angel he’s confused by the need to destroy her and an equal need to protect her.  It’s Reed’s attraction to Evie, a magnetic kind of force that draws him to her, that leaves him with the sense that his love for her is...inescapable.

Reed’s Physical attributes:  he appears to be a 19-year-old (but he’s ancient), 6’ 2”, brown hair with a “in the now” style, green eyes that are almost gray around the edges, charcoal gray wings that are retractable and can be completely hidden within him and resemble an avian, chiseled face, flawless angelic skin, sleek muscles.

Reed’s Class of angel:  Divine Power angel – second tier of angel known as the military branch of angel or the “avenging angels.”  They’re instructed to annihilate fallen angels on Earth and to restore order to the universe.  They’re distinguished by their wing color that can be gray, brown, or green and resemble an avian.  Their military court on Earth is called Dominion. Their symbol is the sword.

Supernatural abilities: 

·      Verbal power of persuasion – his voice is hypnotic, affecting mainly humans to do as he directs. This trait is unique to Reed.  It is not a standard angelic trait.
·      Immense physical strength - he can juggle minivans if he wanted. This is a standard angelic trait.
·      Run extremely fast - Reed can move so fast he’s just a blur to the human eye. This is a standard angelic trait.
·      Fly – he can fly by using his charcoal gray wings. This is a standard angelic trait.
·      Acute hearing – he can hear Evie’s heart from across campus.  This is a standard angelic trait.
·      Higher visual acuity – ability to see vast distances and has night vision.  Able to detect several colors not in the human spectrum of vision, and allows the angel to see lingering “souls” who have not ascended (ghosts). This is a standard angelic trait.
·      Extremely lethal fighting skills – an assassin created for the sole purpose of killing fallen angels.  This is a Power angel trait.
·      Immortality – Reed will never die unless another being kills him.  If he is killed, he “ceases to be” because angels do not have souls.
·      Heal from serious wounds – ability to heal quickly and regenerate tissue, sinew and bone rapidly.  This is a standard angelic trait.

Who wouldn't like a piece of this hottie? And ladies, let me tell you, he is just one of the hotties you will encounter in this series. There are a lot of sexy angel girls for the guys too! lol

My Thoughts:

First of all, it's pretty clear that I LOVE this series. Actually I may venture to say it's my favorite series EVER!

That being said, Amy's writing is superb as always! I'm grateful that in this book I didn't find the words "several killing scenarios crossed my mind" because in book 3 they appeared a lot XD

The storyline besides being unique keeps entangling and getting more complex and at the same time entertaining.  I usually get tired of a series after the third or fourth book because they start repeating themselves or just get boring but with "The Premonition series" I just can't get enough. You'll know what I mean if you read them, it's just highly addictive!

The love story is great. At some moments I wonder why everybody is so damn  infatuated with Evie but it's so nicely executed that it feels right. 

In this book we have a new "lover" which is hot as Hell (well, wait! who isn't in this story?) and also we have a new companion for Russell.
Yay! I was so sad for him. I mean, after all he is the soul mate and he was getting nothing whatsoever. And he was becoming a little pushy.

Another reason why I loved it is because it evoked a lot of strong emotions! I felt sad, happy, scared, angry.  I was freaking out the whole time!

What it is weird is that I always pick " a team" and here, I just love them all lol XD Can I have one of them? 
Every character was deep until now, but they've reached a whole new level. 
So far, we've read from Evie's and Russell's POV and here we also have Reed's. PERFECT. Simply perfect because it allowed me to know him better, if I liked him before, I absolutely adored him now.

If you like reading about angels and like paranormal romance, you MUST read these books. 

P.S: The cover is gorgeous!

Author Information:
I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my “writing uniform” consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed. Please visit me at my website:
