Playing With Fire: A Supernatural Urban Fantasy (Uncommon Bonds Book 1) by William E. Noland follows Lotte, a teenage girl who has just moved from Germany with her father. Lotte is the epitome of an outcast, although she couldn’t care less about what others think. She is asked to tutor Eric in German. Eric thought Lotte was nothing more than a dark and brooding newbie in Southby High School, but through their study sessions, he learns there is a lot more to her than her gothic appearance. The two become closer and when Eric learns of Lotte’s frequent nightmares, he is determined to help her get to the bottom of it. However, they both are in for a big surprise.
Playing With Fire by William E. Noland is a fascinating and exciting story that has depth and different cultural references. This shows how much effort the author put into the story and added to the already amazing writing and plot. I really loved how the narrative switches between Lotte and Eric to the creature, as we don’t often see the perspective of the monster in novels. It gives the story a unique edge and helped with the progression of the plot overall. The characters were also so well described, each with a distinct personality, but with plenty of room to grow. This was a fantastic story and I enjoyed it very much. I would definitely recommend this book to any fans of the fantasy genre.
