Remnants: Season of Fire by Lisa T. Bergren
Remnants: Season of Fire is book 2 in the Remnants series. Filled with exciting battles between good and evil, romance and a spiritual purpose I found Season of Fire to be a hard book to put down. Andriana and her Knight Ronan know that romance between them is forbidden. But their hearts are melded together in spite of their calling. Unfortunately this opens the door to the enemy to use that love against them. Keallach uses his time with Andriana to try and persuade her that the two of them would make a good team to rule over the people. He tries to sway Dri with his gift of manipulating people's feelings. Thankfully Dri is strong in her faith in the mission she and her fellow Ailith have been called to. Being an empath Andriana senses in Keallach a desire to be with his fellow Remnants, but is he somehow able to mask his true feelings and desires in order to confuse Dri?
As I said, I had a hard time putting this book down. Yet at the same time I sometimes had to put it down because I would get so tense over a battle scene or see a foreshadowing of what was to come that I would need to take a little break to regroup! I really liked how the author brought out the spiritual struggle between good and evil. Through Keallach's character the reader can see how the enemy can deceive a person into thinking they are doing the right thing. Ronan and Andriana's relationship is very strong and even beyond their Knight and Remnant status they have the bond of love. But the Maker's purpose for them comes first and they must put that love aside until their mission is complete. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next book that comes out in 2016, Remnants: Season of Glory.
