The vision of the paranormal that Charity Parkerson has painted in her "Society of Sinners" series is rich with many different metaphysical entities, most of them "with a twist." "Sinners of Water and Fire" steps it up a notch and adds gods to the forefront of the story.
Marissa, daughter of Alain and Adriana, and Heru, son of Geb, are the main characters in this book. From the beginning, their romance seems impossible. As the story unfolds, and they finally can get together, more obstacles arise between them; and the inner conflict of Heru's makes the "happy end" seem like a very remote probability.
However, when reading their story, I had no doubt Marissa and Heru will overcome whatever comes their way. The reason for it being, they are not alone. Marissa's family and their friends are willing to put their lives on the line for them, very literally. This is, in my humble opinion, is one of the threads that ties the "Sinners" books together and makes them an enjoyable read - friendship and loyalty. In addition to love, of course; this is a romance, after all.
Characters from earlier installments make appearances and play a pivotal part in the action. Lena and Dan is, by far, my favorite couple in the series, the one I had been rooting for the most, so I was glad to see that they had a pretty major role to play here.
The storyline's build up to the final confrontation is probably the most epic, compared to the previous books. The resolution, on the other hand, almost seems subdued and gentle by comparison, as if to emphasize that no matter how great is the opposition, nothing can stand against love, loyalty, and faith the protagonists have in each other and their friends.
The characterization in "Sinners of Water and Fire" is probably the best out of all the Charity Parkerson's books to this point. Marissa comes through as a real person, which sets off her divine background very well. Heru is not just a hunk of meat but a man, suffering but unbroken; the occasional strong language in his inner monologue gives him a very unique flavor.
Some very neat turns of phrase show off the author's craft as well. For example:
✔ "...they looked like a Scottish clan of fallen angels."
Gives an immediate word picture. What else is there to describe?
✔ "Bloody freaking hell, Samuel, wear a bell, would ya?"
Shows off a character more than half a page of a description would. The last example is said by Tam the pixie. Whenever she appears on the page, one can be almost certain of a bit of comic relief to lighten up the story.
I can go on by I don't want to give too many spoilers.
What can I say - I've been a fan of Charity Parkerson's books for a while and I am happy to see one of my favorite authors keep improving book after book. Highly recommended.
Firstly I would like to thank Charity Parkerson,author of Sinners of Water & Fire for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this awesome book.
I really liked the book a lot. As this is the first book I read in this series so I got a little confused at the beginning but after spending a little time within the world that the author created I got mesmerized and I got the full concept of the book which is totally breath-taking with war between demons and Gods, forbidden love, eternal curse, reincarnation and all this made a WOW story for me.
It is fast-paced and totally entertaining with the power-packed action scenes, building tension as the story progresses and on top of that the fabulous characters who brought this whole world to life and made the story believable and not surprisingly I adored Marissa and loved Heru. They are really made for each other and their passionate love and the never dying romance made me giddy and brought tears when they face so many difficulties.
The writing style is remarkable and I got totally impressed by the skilled way of presentation that the author mastered in. Loved the humorous aspect that the author introduced here which brought new flavors in the story.
A great read and totally recommended from my side. Enjoy, folks!
