Review: Burn (Bad Angels #2) by Belinda McBride

Falling isn’t so bad, it’s the landing that hurts.
Following an auto accident, Rex Clark lays near death in the rocky wilderness of the Trinity Alps. Just when it appears that things can’t get worse, she shows up. Anahita…the succubus. She’s been his frequent companion, and the bane of Rion’s existence, for well over a century. But it seems that this time she’s come to help.
From the frozen villages of the Inuit to the cities of America, Dr. Noemi Gastineau has seen it all. When a fallen angel shows up at the reservation clinic with an injured Sidhe, Noemi takes everything in stride. Yet within hours, she’s swept into an enchanted world she never imagined existed.
So why are the men so temptingly familiar? And why is she suddenly so afraid?
A fallen angel, a Sidhe, a human and a succubus. Never mind the demons, these four are about to catch fire! The question is…who will survive the burn?


I didn't read the previous book and I probably should have, but I didn't so what's done is done. If, however, you're considering reading this series I would suggest you start with book one.

In this book Rex is a Sidhe who's been viciously attacked by some possessed teens and, essentially, left for dead. Anahita is the succubus who's been feeding off him and his ginger haired, fallen angel lover, Orion, for over a century. She senses Rex's predicament and alerts Rion. Once Rion arrives and recognizes the dire state of his immortal but not indestructible mate he takes him to a clinic where they meet Noemi and the attraction and adventure begins.

Another confession, I have an enormously hard time rating things of this sort. It took me years to finally admit that Empire Strikes Back was actually my favorite of the trilogy. I have an annoying habit of needing to see the whole picture prior to committing to one. Call me fickle. I call me discerning.

Here's what I know. Burn held my attention. I liked the pacing, the characters, the plot and all the paranormal aspects being folded into contemporary society. I'm definitely going to read the next installment. After that, that heart rating you see up there could very change . Think of it as a place holder, if you will.

If you're looking for an up tempo urban fantasy this could be for you.
