Series: Sydney Rye Series
Review: INVITING FIRE is the sixth book in the explosive Sydney Rye series. Sydney’s been recovering from a almost-fatal traumatic experience, complete with nightmares, waking flashbacks, and paranoia. She’s also dealing with the strange pleasure she is experiencing while facing her nightmares. In order to heal, she’s at the training camp of Joyful Justice, the network which was born from those who wish to expand on her vengeance. Yet recuperating is not as easy for Sydney as she’d like when an old enemy comes knocking. INVITING FIRE starts off with a bang and the reader is swept along with Sydney as she tries to keep her head above water. She’s more vulnerable, which is how we’re able to gain some interesting insights into Sydney’s character. I found it very easy to relate to Sydney in INVITING FIRE, which is a huge credit to the author. I was very pleased with the balance between action and introspection in this book. Definitely start with book one, UNLEASHED, if you haven’t yet read this series. It’s well worth your time!
