And that is when they find each other, all three of them with a person in their minds, all three of them willing to help the others to get revenge themselves.
The “Burn for burn” trilogy was a compelling read, however one of their twists the trilogy gives in the second book throw me out a little bit. I liked the concept and how as the trilogy progressed the plot became more twist and complicated. I liked how feelings get everything complicated since I think that is one of the things that makes things complicated in real life.
None the less, as I said before the fantasy turn it toke by the second book it was in my opinion kind of unnecessary, and even though I saw I coming I was hoping until it gets revealed that the authors would have not picked that turn.
With all that being said, I recommend the trilogy just go into it knowing that it has some fantasy elements to it, and that it is not a complete contemporary novel.
