Review – Burn Me


Burn Me


Immortal Vices and Virtues #10


K.A. Knight & Kendra Moreno


Paranormal Romance


Wrong place, wrong time. That’s what I tell myself when I witness an angel working with demons and rush to tell our leader of the treachery. There’s only one problem. He turns on me, declares me a traitor, and claims I stole something from them. He demands my head and I have no choice but to flee my realm for another.
I’m a warrior. Running was never in my plans but it’s the only way to survive in this deadly game of lies.
Get safe. Find the missing object. Prove my innocence.
Until the Crown Prince of Soleil, a demon and my mortal enemy, appears and declares he’s here to take me back.
Somehow, I convince the demon to help me. Maybe because he wants to see me fall, and if he keeps looking at me like that, I might just consider it. Dripping in sin, and temptation incarnate, it takes everything in me to focus on proving my innocence over the urge to teach the cocky demon a lesson.
But falling is starting to look like a good option.
However, the angels are still after me, and I’ll have to make a choice between the world I know, and the one that suddenly starts calling to my soul. I hope I’m strong enough for this fight. I hope I can hold out just a little bit longer.
The lies burn, but the truth will give us wings. . .


3.5stars rating

In this instalment, we’re moving into the angel and demon realm (Celestia and Soleil) with a brief sojourn on Earth 🙂
All scenes and environments were well described, and we got enough information about the world and its important figures to follow the story without confusion. I think, however, I would have liked a bit more info here and there (about the other seraphim or the other princess/princes of Soleil, for example). There were also some (minor) inconsistencies throughout the book, but while it didn’t matter much when reading, in hindsight, it feels like those were missed opportunities.

Character development:

Roux is an archangel in service of the seraphim. Her job is to patrol the wasteland and watch for the demons living in Soleil. However, she has always been a bit of a rebel instead of following all the rules. Nevertheless, she wants to do her best, and if that means going a bit further on her patrols or checking out weird noises, she will do it! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that makes her the perfect scapegoat for her superiors.
Roux is a badass angel, she can fight with the best of them, but she is also compassionate and giving. It was fun to read her story and see her come into her own and, yeah, become an even bigger badass angel 😀
Vetris is this year’s crown prince of Soleil. Which pretty much means lounging on his throne, being bored and partying if he can be bothered. When the request comes from Celestia for him to hunt an angel, well… if that doesn’t get his blood pumping, nothing will.
We get to see more than Vetris’ ‘prince of hell’ persona, we see the person (well… demon) within and how he moves and adapts to the curveball thrown by fate.
We touch briefly on other characters, but those stay well on the sideline with little information.

Pacing & Flow:

I felt that the start was a bit too slow, and it could not keep my attention. But then again, the stage needed to be set. As soon as the pieces started moving, it felt much better, but the ending felt rushed (or maybe I’m just never happy lol?).
There was a good balance between the action and all the talking.

The book itself:

The book was well written, with no (noticeable) errors. There are sexual scenes described (if that is important to you). I would give it 3½ out of 5.
The book has 220 pages, spread over 40 chapters and is told from both Roux’s and Vetris’ points of view.

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book, and I must admit, the first part was a bit of a struggle for me. So if you’ve maybe read a sample and are not convinced? Pick it up! It gets better 😀
