Ignite by Erica Crouch | Book Review #117

Penemuel (Pen) fell from grace over a millennium ago, yet there are still times she questions her 17875224decision to follow her twin brother, Azael, to Hell. Now that the archangel Michael has returned, threatening Lucifer’s vie for the throne, she begins questioning everything she has always believed.

As Hell prepares for war – spreading a demonic virus and pilfering innocent souls to build an army – the lines separating the worlds blur. Fates erase and the future is left unwritten. Azael is determined that he and his sister will continue to serve as demons together, but for the first time in her life, Pen is not ruled by destiny. She has the freedom of choice.

With choice comes sacrifice, and Pen must decide which side she’s willing to risk everything fighting for: the light, or the dark.

Ignite is very well written. The book has a nice flow to it, and as we read a long, the story…reveals itself? There are some things that I feel were left untouched that the author just skimmed over. With that, the story is indeed interesting. Ignite was exciting when it needed to be, and when things calmed down.. Thats when bits and pieces of the story were revealed.

There are some great characters in this book. And they have big emotional awakenings. The settings were really god and everything was well executed. The characters did get overly dramatic at times. And that just got to the point where I was annoyed as all hell. When I finished the book it was an alright ending, and then I flipped the page and saw that there was an Epilogue. The epilogue was just totally unnecessary. Overall, the story fell flat to me.

Ignite is the first book to a 3 book series that has two novella’s. I’m not totally sure on whether or not I actually want to continue on with the series at all. Maybe if I get them from the library, I’ll give the second book a chance. Otherwise, I don’t think I’d pay for the remaining books.

I received a copy of Ignite from the publisher, Patchwork Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
(but ran out of time to read it so I bought it electronically and read it)
