Just Keeps Getting Better
out of 5 stars
This series just keeps getting better and better! I know I’ve said that before but it totally does!!! There are so many things happening at the same time, that you don’t know what to expect!! Book 5 sees Stefan Korzh unleashing the firebug that is Molly! Molly loves fire and when her book is acquired by a hoarder, she finds an unsuspecting boy and creates havoc in the form of burning buildings and people. Victor and Tom have to stop her before it’s too late. Tom also has to deal with a ghost of his own who wants control over him! Stefan is still being his creepy self. Nicholas and Ariana will try anything to get to Stefan and Anne are still on the loose.
The plot of this one was a little darker than previous ones. Molly loves fire and loves seeing it burn everything and anything. Her book comes into the hands of a creepy hoarder dude who has some serious problems!! This guy is one of the creepiest characters I’ve read in a while too!! Anyway, reading about Molly gave me the creeps, she was one messed up girl.
Tom is really growing up! I liked that he is trying to have a bit of normal in all the madness. Himself and Iris are so cute!! I’m intrigued to know more about Ezekiel too and am loving the introduction of Chaos and can’t wait to see more of him in future books. All the characters were well written and developed, and you can’t help but like them!!
In all, The Burning Girl was the best in the series so far. It was extremely fast-paced and entertaining. I’m loving this series and am always on the lookout for the next one.
Thom Bowers is also getting better with each passing book. His accents and tones were great here and he captured the tone of the book perfectly. Bring on book 6!!!

Bright red flames emerge with the strike of a match, devouring everything in sight...
Stefan Korzh's desire to destroy the lives of everyone around him knows no bounds. Even as he's hunted by enemies, Stefan shows no signs of slowing down. His deadly collection of antiques continues to spread and help his dreams become reality.
Meanwhile, Victor Daniels and Tom Crane have managed to build some resemblance of an ordinary life. They remain more determined than ever in their fight against Stefan and will stop at nothing to put an end to the horrors of the Korzh collection. But life tends to take nasty turns when ghosts are involved.
Stefan's latest threat is the fire-obsessed Molly, whose deadly ghost emerges from the pages of a novel. With the simple flick of a match, she satisfies her addiction for scorching buildings and burning flesh. Victor and Tom quickly find themselves in the middle of a bloody trail of chaos chasing after an enemy that will test the limits of their strength. And they must hurry. Because it doesn't take long before Molly craves her next fiery fix.
