Time passes . . . sometimes too quickly, other times not fast enough, but that’s not what’s important. The essential thing is what we learn about ourselves during that passage of time and how we apply it. Will we continue to follow the destructive paths we find ourselves on? Will we give in to circumstances that seem completely unchangeable? Or will we desperately fight to hold onto those we love and to what’s good inside us—no matter how terrible the cost?
This book showcases why Vance Magnum is one of my favorite “Book Boyfriends.”
“You’ve got to know I want you more than anything in this world, Portia. Emotionally, physically, magically, mentally, i want it all — to possess every inch of your being.”
When I heard that Lacey Weatherford was going to release a book in Vance’s POV I was ecstatic. The whole time I was reading Of Witches of Warlock series, I was constantly wondering what Vance’s thought process was. Don’t get me wrong, Portia’s POV was great, but as a female reader I sometimes tend to want to know things from the male characters POV since I am a female. They say a woman’s mind is a mystery, but so is that of a man’s. Yes I know this is fiction, but you never know whether or not the Author asked a male’s opinion as research for their book.
“Portia, I love you more than anything in the world, but if you know what’s best for you, I suggest you get back into the bed and cover yourself.”
Fire & Ice start of pretty much in the same spot as the first book, “The Trouble with Spells” did. The only difference between when I read Portia’s POV and Vance’s is that with Vance the readers got his journal entries along with his point of views. These journal entries took place in his present and in his past, which incorporated flashbacks into his past, which was a nice treat. Any questions you had for Vance in the first book of the Of Witches and Warlocks series (or just the first book) were pretty much answered and with explanation. The actions he decided to take for whatever reason come to light through his eyes, which made me, fall even more in love with his character than I already had. We as readers get a better in depth perspective of how much he really is in love with Portia [enter swooning here].
“I mean, if I didn’t think your dad would shoot me, I’d drop everything I was doing right now and come over there. Then I would pound on your door until you opened it and let me kiss you senseless.”
Reading this book was just a pure delight because how it coincided perfectly with book one. I hope that there are more books in Vance’s point of view because I just ate this one up and definitely want much more.
