Book Review: Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson

Author: Cecy Robson
Title: Of Flame and Light (Weird Girls #7)
Genre: Paranormal Romance & Fantasy
Pages: ebook
First Published: October 2016
Where I Got It: My Shelf (Amazon)

Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightning. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran's insecurities have driven them apart.  

Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative. 

The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don't come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered. Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . . 

This is the 7th installment of the Weird Girl series. This is technically the first full novel starring Taran. This novel takes place after some terrible stuff happened especially to Taran. Her arm was ripped off and she is given a powerful arm that has destroyed her self-confidence, her control over her power, and even her relationship with Gemini. 

I loved Taran in the past books so I was excited to see that the POV switched to her. She's so funny. Even in here when she is super depressed and broken-hearted she was still funny and charming (in her own special way). However, her bull-headedness killed me. GEMINI LOVES YOU! GAHHHH! 

Gemini...I love him. He is my favorite were out of the whole pack. I would want him to be my mate if I was in that world ;) However, he needed to really stand firm and force that stubborn woman to listen to him!! He is just too gentlemanly to sit her down and tell her to shut her face. The two balance each other out very well so I love them together. Like ying and yang. 

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!!!! Genevieve needed a good kick in the pants. All her plans sucked and just caused more issues even for her. For one being so smart and so powerful she really was dumb. 

If I got sucked into this world remind me to not join the witch's coven. Screw that. They are all insane. I get training and whatnot, but there is a line. A big fat black line. I rather be a vamp or a were personally. The witches are cra-cra. Poor Taran. 

OOOOOH the ending! So good. I'm excited to see what Misha wants and what is looming on the horizon. That mean ol' author never lets the Wird Sisters rest. ;) But protecting the Earth from evil and darkness is a job that is never done. 

Overall, this was good. The series, I feel, is refreshed with the new POV! It's time to give poor Celia a break and let Taran be the star for a bit. I'm excited to see what is coming up next in the series. Out of five stars, I'm giving this a 5!
