Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on Evie's cheeks as she emerges from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling her dark peacoat tighter to her body, the wind lifts red tendrils of her hair. She walks slowly to the railing overlooking the water. She catches her first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes her shiver in dread. She finds it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it. The cold, moss-covered edifices practically scream their presence. As she studies the shadows between the falling-down stone, she imagines creeping shapes of undead Faeries grasping the rock, waiting for their ship to draw nearer to their position. Tipping her face up, she lets the rain wash over her. It bathes away the frigid sweat of fear that has broken on her brow. "You don't know how fiercely beautiful you are, do you?" a quiet voice behind her asks, causing her to stiffen and fix her eyes on the rocks along the shoreline.

This book seemed to drag more than the others in the series. The drag started after Evie met her father. It did pick up a little toward the end. Narrator is great! I get Evie's character but she did a lot of whining. I wanted her to get a backbone, and just go after her man. I mean Reed is definitely worth it to her.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Everyone is still after Evie! Russell her soul mate wants her back because their souls belongs to each other. Evie's angel Reed is equivalent to being her husband is fighting to keep her and Brennas the faery vampire king is hunting her down. Reinforcements are called in to keep Evie safe from Brennas and it turns out to be Tao the highest ranking seraphim angel in paradise and he also happens to be Evie's father. Evie is uncertain in meeting her father until he shows up with his cronies and it turns out Evie has met him and his cronies before. Evie starts having flash backs of being in paradise and in love but the love wasn't Russell or Reed, she doesn't know what to think about that. The book is action packed and Evie is becoming a leader among the angels that might even rival her father's command. The plot thickens and I need the next book!
I am very disappointed in this book. it should have been the book that closes the story. it is the same story as book 3 with the addition of 3 characters. would have been ok except it leaves the characters in the same situation as book 3. I won't bother buying the next book when it comes out.
I greatly enjoy Evie and Brennas interactions. I am over the love triangle and am glad Russel has found someone. Reed was a little whiney during this book. I am still hooked and can not wait to read #5.
I loved hearing Emily read. I think the character I enjoyed the most was Brennas. Great accent, inflections, and expression in all the characters.
The end was a slow and drawn out but not horrible.
After reading all of the other books I was really looking forward to a finale. you do not get that with this book. I am incredibly disappointed with the ending.
I really enjoyed this book! It's a great addition to the series! I just wish it was more adult and less YA. The romantic scenes are somewhat lacking. Overall fantastic though with great narration.
The narration brings the book to life.Emily Woo Zellar has voices/accents for every character.
Too many! Zee if I had to pick just one.
Incendiary is the fourth book in the Premonition Series by Amy A. Bartol. It is YA urban fantasy/paranormal book told from Evie, Russell, and Reed’s POV. Books must be read in order to understand the plot.
If you are familiar with Mrs. Bartol’s books, you know how her books are much more than words on a page. You know that they are poetry, written with a detail that is like no other author out there. They take you to an imaginary world so rich, you forget where you are. They become your friends and live within side of you.
Incendiary picks up shortly after Indebted ends. Evie, Reed, Zee, Buns, Russell, and Brownie are regrouping on a tropical island in the South Pacific. They know that Brennus is going to come for Evie and the Dominion are after Russell. Evie’s father, Tau, who’s a Seraph, shows up at the Dominion looking for her along with two other Seraphim, Cole Martin and Xavier Reece. We also meet a “wickeddamnsexy” Throne named Anya. Everyone is fighting for/to control Evie. This time she realizes that she is going to have to fight/kill for her love of Reed and her friends.
Incendiary is full of action. Bartol writes some of the best action sequences in books. Her descriptions are so engrossing, it’s as if your almost there. Of course her book is balanced with humor, tension, and romance. This time we have one chapter of Reed’s POV. I FLOVE this chapter. You always hear his perfect words he says to Evie, but to be in his head is incredible.
This book is my favorite in the Premonition Series. Some of the scenes with Evie and Tau, and Evie and Reed were perfection. I was loving the scenes with Russell and Anya. You see the brilliant mind in Ms. Bartol with the foreshadowing from book one in Incendiary. I read about 4-5 books per week. Sometimes I read so much; I need to clear my head. I need a book that has all the feels and that is comfortable like coming home. That’s the Premonition Series for me.
"Good, I would recommend"
Liked the story and the characters. looking forward to the next installment. Plot was predictable but not boring.
"Great book brilliantly read"
excellent well read
All 4 books are easy listening, very well narrated and good storyline. From a purely personal perspective I wanted Evie to grow a bit more of a spine!, it gets a bit long in the tooth being fearful for everyone all the time…come on you’re an Angel! And all your friends are Angels...
Emily Woo Zeller’s narration continues to be excellent and consistent accents between all characters. She play Evie very well!
If I had to, then yes I would, it is very easy listening
These are all great books for all types of people, easy to get into.
