Summary from Goodreads:
From USA Today bestselling author Karpov Kinrade comes an award-winning series full of romance and page-turning suspense.

"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 one action packed read! I didn't want to put it down even when I had to. I really liked the first book in this trilogy but this one was even better. I can't wait to see how it all ends in the final book.

Sam and Drake have escaped and are now hiding with Drake's friend Brad in California. But things are far from good. Sam and Drake's relationship is tested by other people and circumstances throughout the story. It's far from a story book romance. But I'm still rooting for them all the same. They try to keep a low profile but the seeker has people working for him to track them down.

Luke and Lucy have their own problems back at the school. The campus has been overtaken by the bad people with a guy named Mr. Black who is in charge. The siblings have been invited to join a revolution with other students to overtake the school and somehow escape. Nothing seems to go as planned. Luke and Lucy are sent out on a mission that goes all wrong too. But Lucy comes back with an item that even she is not sure what it is.

The book is action packed from beginning to end. We get to meet some new characters and learn a little more about others. I liked how the story switched back and forth between what was going on with Sam and Drake and then with Luke and Lucy. There is a lot going on the whole time. The last part of the book has another new part to this story that I'm sure will be played out in the final book. I recommend this book if you enjoy fantasy with some sci-fi in the mix.
