As you know the Fire Lords Lover is one of my favourite books. I can re-read it everyday the story is so beautiful and enticing that it keeps you on edge until you've finished the story. The Sequel, The Lady of the Storm, is definitely no exception. Set in the same world, but focusing on a different character, this story is a continuation from the first but takes on a whole new aspect and lets you view more of the world
She controls the sea and sky, and obeys no man...
There's a thin line between duty and desire...
Giles Beaumont is stuck in a role he never wanted, trying to safeguard a woman of incendiary powers who doesn't think she needs a protector.
Cecily Sutton has no idea of the enormity of her true task and no inkling of the effect she's having on Giles. But somewhere along their perilous journey together, they'll have no choice but to uncover the deep, dark connection that binds them one to the other.
This story expands quite a lot from the first. Whereas the first book is based around the castle, this one is based outside in a difference part of the world, although we do visit the castle in this story. Set in Georgian England where mad elven lords rule over parts of the country and wage war for control of the King of England, Cecily is figuring out her powers and trying to hide her feelings from her protector.
Her step-father has left her in the care of Giles, with a magical protection to boot, and when it all disappears and her village is attacked, Cecily decides that she cannot just stay here. Giles manages to get her away from the attack and so starts their journey. However, their desires for each other are hard to keep at bay and once they end up in the thralls of the Water Lords court things are bound to get messy.
