Feed the Flames (Steel & Stone, book 3.5) by Annette Marie
In this short story addition to the Steel & Stone series, discover the fate of Seiya and Lyre following the conclusion of YIELD THE NIGHT (Steel & Stone #3).
Seiya wants nothing more than to disappear with her brother, safe from all the enemies that would tear them apart. But now she, along with Lyre, has been taken prisoner. Separated from Ash, his fate unknown, and tormented by memories of her imprisonment in Asphodel, she must put her faith in Lyre and his carefully guarded secrets. To have any chance of escape, they’ll have to work together to find a way out before they learn what fate their captors are planning for them.
“You're right, because if not for her, Ash would be dead and you'd still be in Asphodel, pregnant with the next generation of Samael's slaves.”
That's right Seiya! Ugh! You tell her Lyre.
Honestly I did not want to read from Seiya's point of view. By the end of Yield the Night all I wanted was to strangle her and weigh her body down somewhere so she wouldn't sully any more page time. Sleep with the fishes you annoying SOB. It also ticked me off to see the whole hate was part jealousy despite what Lyre told Piper. Lyre new it too, and I enjoyed that he confronted Seiya about it.
It was really cool seeing what happened to Lyre and Seiya after they returned through the portal. I think there's some discord in the Raas' clan. I think this will signal the turning point for Seiya's characters, and I actually would suggest reading it for the series. Especially since despite this being told from Seiya's POV it is very much a Lyre book. As he finally divulges some information about himself. OMG!!!
Sexual Content: Actually, I don't think Lyre worked any of his flitateous magics. (Much to Seiya's annoyance.) A mild dark theme is referenced (see quote above), but honestly this book is clean.
4/5- Great! Really enjoyed it.
