Ciaran is determined to simply survive his trials and tribulations in the Underworld, believing it a just trade for saving the lives of his new nephews. But he knows nothing of the horror that awaits him or just what he may be capable of as he struggles through. But simple survival stops being enough when he turns the head of a demon. Gem is not just any demon. Her own secrets mean that she has much to hide and much to lose by trusting Ciaran with her secrets. But what they have together maybe more than either of them can stand to survive without, especially if they hope to escape the horror that they have lived amongst for too long. Forged in Fire by Lyn C. Johanson is definitely a book you will not forget soon and one you’re going to want to read again and again.
I had already read the first book by this author and I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to read this one. The writing was what I had expected and I found myself drawn into the story of Ciaran and Gem (or Desiree) quickly. I wanted to know everything about them and I was not disappointed because Forged in Fire definitely doesn’t let you down when it comes to romance and adventure all at the same time. You feel like you just can’t get enough of the story and the people in it, whether it’s Kaden and V or Ciaran and Gem.
