For some reason, I just started losing interest. I really wanted to like this series especially as the first novel showed promise. Although this second novel seems to promise tense action, it's really mostly a long narrative of the ongoing investigation to find the perpetrator behind a series of vampire murders. Some of the more interesting plot lines like Ari's witch background and the reason for her magic bond with Andreas are repeatedly mentioned but not developed. I guess the author was keeping this as a hook for future novels in the series but at this point, I barely care. There is little need for the one of the main male characters, Andreas, to even be a vampire as his strength though regularly alluded to is rarely exhibited. No blood drinking, hardly mention of a fang or anything else you might expect. Now, normally This wouldn't necessarily put me off an urban fantasy novel with a vampire in it so long as there's an interesting alternative angle. There isn't. Not sure I will be carrying on with this series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this read! The Witch as well as Guardian named Arianna Calin (Ari), with human, Ryan Foster have a murder to solve. The murder soon turns out to be more complicated than it at first appears. Sexy vampire, Andreas de Luca soon makes an appearance and offers his help, much to Ari's dismay. There is a connection between Andreas and Ari that the witch initially wants to go away, however it is this relationship that hooks you into the fast paced storyline. The plot becomes more complicated when further murders take place. Is Shale's Agency involved, or could it be the pure bloods. Maybe there is something more sinister at play? With Elfs, werewolves, demons, angry vampires and more, this is a well written book that will grab your attention. Having read Ms Shields first book, I would definitely recommend this sequel!

HASH(0x9b6ddbdc) out of 5 stars Brilliant Sequel 2 April 2013

HASH(0x9b6ddc30) out of 5 stars Bloodshed in Olde Town, Riverdale 15 April 2013
By Dan L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Arianna Calin is a witch. Not only that, she is the Guardian of Riverdale, sanctioned by the Council of Magic -- one part detective, one part battle-hardened crime fighter, and all parts tough as nails.

When Ari's reporter friend, Eddie, confesses to a murder he clearly didn't commit, it's up to Ari to investigate the case and uncover the truth.

Ari's search leads her through the darkened, supernaturally-packed streets of Riverdale's Olde Town. She encounters vampires, lycanthropes, and no small number of suspicious individuals. As the bodies begin to pile up, Ari realizes that not only is Eddie innocent, but that Riverdale might just have a serial killer on its hands -- a serial killer targeting the city's vampire population.

But what's the motive?

Why the irregularities in the killer's M.O.?

Why can't the police pinpoint the murder weapon?

Ari will have to answer all these questions and more, while dealing with her own personal mystery. Ari's family is under a powerful enchantment -- one that will reveal in dreams her one true love so she can continue the Calin bloodline. Her nights are haunted by the man whose magic once intertwined with hers.

There's only one problem: her dreams are showing her former flame Andreas DeLuca. A vampire.

What's worse, Andreas may just be the killer's next target.

Fire Within is a fun, solid, satisfying entry in the crime fiction subgenre of urban fantasy. It manages to capture the detective noir feel with style and panache. With an engaging cast of characters and a compelling mystery, it is in many ways reminiscent of the earlier case-based entries in Jim Butcher's bestselling series The Dresden Files. Anyone who is a fan should do themselves a great favor and pick up Fire Within today.

HASH(0x9c220084) out of 5 stars A wonderfully written story and a definite MUST READ!!! 5 Stars. 2 May 2013
By Kirstin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ally Shields has done it again! In only a way a master of words can do, she has twisted and turned ordinary words into an extraordinary story. Reintroducing us to the familiar characters we loved from the first story and giving us a new mystery to solve.

As a string of vampire murders take place in Riverdale, Ari and her partner have to solve the crime before the vampires handle things on their own, or more bodies show up. When Andreas, the charming and charismatic vampire wiggles his way into the case, how will Ari balance her feelings, the past, and solve a mystery that has magic written all over it?

If you're like me, and you loved the diverse characters, their interactions and their chemistry... you won't be disappointed in this book. Picking up several months after the first book ended, the characters stay true to form, and answer any of your lingering questions. The connection and chemistry is still there and you will not be disappointed!!!

No doubt about it! A wonderfully written story and a definite MUST READ!!! 5 Stars.

HASH(0x9c22006c) out of 5 stars Frustrating and yet I still want to see how it ends 8 Aug. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The main character Ari is beyond frustrating and poorly developed. She goes through "transformative" experiences in a sentence or two, goes from being terrified about even considering a vampire to calling him her "boyfriend" and back without much explanation as to what caused the changes. Its obvious she is supposed to be seriously flawed, but the author doesn't do much to make you like her despite her flaws.

In addition to the problems with the main character in this book the plot is rather transparent. I could tell the motive, strategy, and identity of the protagonist half way through the book. Unfortunately the characters didn't figure any of this out until basically the last chapter. It is frustrating to read about them walking around blindly when the answers are obvious.

The only redeeming part of this book is Andreas. I like him, and I want to find out what happens between him and Ari simply because of this, which is why I would even consider reading the next book in the series. I'm hoping I can just read the synopsis and find out so I don't have to subject myself to any more of the books to get my answers though.

HASH(0x9c220468) out of 5 stars Arianna is back!! 14 May 2013
By LadyTess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Arianna is back!! I really enjoy Arianna; she has a backbone and is down to earth too! Ari continues to grow with each book. I am so glad that there is no love triangle!!

In the Otherworld you never know where trouble will come from or rather what creature will be causing trouble. But there is never a dull moment. Following along as Ari with the help of Ryan and Andrea solve the mystery of who is killing the vampires and why. I need more of Ari and Andrea, I love there chemistry.

The real mystery is this connection between Arianna and Andrea; I mean what kind of connection a Fire Witch and a Vampire can have. I really hope it is finally address in the next book.
