[[ Prime ]] Fire and Rayne (Rayne, #2) Author Kate Cann –

I didn t know if I was going to read this book only because I wasn t overly impressed with Possessed, the first novel in the series But, funny thing is I was kinda comfortable going back into this story It was easy to read, just not a book that I couldn t put down.So Rayne is still working at the haunted, cursed house and now she is upset because things arent exactly working out with Ethan They seem awkward together and when he finally did kiss her it didn t feel right and she thinks she scared him off The only reason she felt so off was because she just got out of that ridiculous relationship with St John, who turned out to be an evil S.O.B.But now things are changing at work The woman who used to do the tours and dinners had to leave due to her mother s sickness, and the manager is looking for someone new to fill her shoes Enter Ms Skelton, who is very pretty and puts the moves on the unsuspecting manager She is all about changing the place and booking tours and overnight stays and changing the menus And most of all, tapping into the darkness and evil of the place to get people to come there for an experience of the supernatural That doesn t sit well with Rayne or anyone else that is working there They think if the evil of the manor is exposed, then it will wake it up and hell will break loose.Well then, guess what ends up happening This was a pretty good book Better in my opinion than the first in the series I enjoyed it And I appreciated the ending as well It wrapped everything up so the reader wasn t left with a lot of questions as to what happened with some of the supporting characters. One of my favourite books ever Loved it It had everything, horror, mystery and romance I recommend this to everyone I was so psyched to hear that there was a sequel to Possessed I don t know if that book got the buzz it deserved Things I like about Possessed and Consumed 1 It s not really paranormal, like supernatural There s a difference for me, maybe I m thinking in marketing terms.2 It s got a traditional mystery element mixed in because the main characters are just normal people trying to figure weird stuff out ok, so Rayne has a connection to the Green Lady, but she s not, like, an angel or a werewolf or in love with an angel or a werewolf 3 PAGANISM THE BRITISH ISLES squee.4 There s not a whole lot of dithering Rayne is very direct She s on the train with Ethan She looks at him She thinks to herself that she wants to kiss him She thinks of other things Even when she s not sure if he likes her for her or for her connection to the mystical, there s no tortured hemming and hawing She gets depressed about it but goes on about her life I appreciate this.It was such a pleasure to read this book And it made me want to watch the original Wicker Man. I guess I didn t learn the first time around This book was creepier than the first and I read it through the night Kate Cann certainly knows how to incite feelings of paranoiaor maybe that s just me Just finished this book,A must read for sure Fire the second book of the series is definitely interesting, there is a lot of action and background described in this book compared to its 1st book Possessed The author is not yet done with this series, so let us see how the story will be continued Consumed by Kate Cann is full of suspense and it also has a hint of terror in this book This book talks about how the main character Rayne is cursed by a ghost in a stone at the top of Wildhern Valley and whenever she was at a festival and it had a fire lit she was always see the green lady in the middle of the fire I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars because even though it was an okay book I only choose this book because it the book sounded like it had horror inside the book so I chose it, but it didn t really have it, but even though it didn t have that much horror in the book I still enjoyed this book and I recommend this bool to people that like horror and books that are filled with suspense. One of the things I love about Kate Cann is the way both Possessed and Fire Rayne invoke the mixed serenity and severity of nature rather than with paranormal elements Cann embraces all nature s powers and the worship of the Green Lady as her literary mysticism Her lead has no telepathic powers, no vampire or werewolf friends but simply, a burgeoning affinity for the natural world With her mixed heritage, Rayne Peters is a child of the earth, and a favorite of the Green Lady This reverence to nature, the cosmos, and the natural order that is present in Cann s novels make it inherent to simply take her pages in stride, surrender to the enveloping mood that creeps over you, page after page like a mist rolling in from the moors In many ways, Cann s take ends up being believable than the most complicated paranormal plot and what makes her story, mood, and voice so distinctive.This time for Rayne and her small band of friends, the evil of Simeon Lingwall s legacy has started up again and this time the whole town of Marcle Lees is involved If they are not careful, the miasma will not come creeping from under the flagstones of Morton s Keep, but through the front door and endanger everyone in the vicinity The good towns folk must dig into the history and rituals of the fire festivals in order to combat this lethal threat That means Rayne will be working closely with Ethan Within that history and their local religion, they must seek out and protect the six sacred goddess sites before the cult of Simeon Lingwall s followers desecrate them It is said that on the 6th cursed act, the evil buried beneath the keep will be freed.Is the ghost of Simeon Lingwall acting through St John and his followers again, or is it some new threat Since the arrival of Mr Stuart s new estate manager, Louisa Skelton, the house has been slowly coming back to life as it was in Lingwall s time Capitalizing on the keep s past history, Skelton has launched a website, has been staging elaborate gothic dinners and concerts She has forced out the old protectors like Mrs Barton, Mrs Driver and even Rayne And the keep s haunts can t help but eagerly wait for the evil to flourish once again Rayne can feel its oppressive presence slinking ever closer to her and the ones she loves.Cann has deliciously upped the ante in many ways Cann has deliciously upped the ante in many ways Cann has deliciously upped the ante in many ways Possessed s scintillating sequel is full of chilling action, romance YES , contemplation, murder, mayhem, magic, and a sinister moodiness that is pervasive throughout the book Rayne has finally embraced who she is with one minor setback Cramphurst Estate is no longer home for her Rayne must look forward She s still crushed about St John, but well rid of him, and it s cleared a path for Ethan But will she take that step Will Ethan prove himself different from St John Why is she so drawn to him Will she also admit that she is part of the community, and the necessary force behind the fight The village cannot combat the threat without her With the most recent murder and attacks, they need her Fire Rayne is all about her taking on the mantle of her responsibilities and readers will find that all their questions will be answered within its delicious pages Deeply suspenseful, meshed with romantic elements, and simply unique, Cann is fast becoming one of my new favorite YA authors A Fiendishly Bookish Review ConsumedI initially picked the book off the shelf because of the back cover descriptor, It was ghosts dancing They were responding to the music I was searching for a ghost story nothing gory.I finished reading Consumed after several jump starts I was not initially engaged in the story, however I found myself returning to the book to fill a few afternoons of quiet time I admit my lack of engagement is mostly due to the fact that I haven t read the first book in the series so I was catching up to the story thru vague references from the main characters I found the author s conversational writing style moved the story along fairly quickly As an adult reading a story meant for teen middle grade readers I could find myself being critical to some of the story lines The conflicted romance between Rayne and Ethan held absolutely no interest for me I was solely interested in the good vs evil battle I was thrown off by the anticlimactic scenes at the end of the novel and how easily the characters went on to party always seeming to have beer and food available At times I wanted to grab hold of Mrs Driver and shake sense into her, warn her of the evil.The author neatly wraps up the other conflicts story lines rather quickly in the end Was this important to me I don t know I wasn t even thinking about Rayne s family at the end of the story given she d moved back to Morton s Keep, however the author provides us closure to how Rayne will most likely not interact with her family into the future Quick explanations are given about the treatment of the folks conjuring up the evil again, I thought it was a bit too simplistic, but again for a teen middle aged reader an important aspect.For anyone looking for an engaging ghost story without the gore present in many paranormal novels, I d recommend this book and I should seek out the first novel leading up to Consumed. 4.5 starsI have to say that it was better than the first book in the series I thought this book was interesting than the first book, but towards the ending of the first book it got better in the end This one was kind of like that I was into the characters than the first book I felt like we kind of had a connection.
