"Playing with Fire"

Author: Devika Fernando

My Review

Playing with fire is the first paranormal I have read - kudos to Devika for trying her hand at something different. The author has done a fabulous job with the character sketches - Felicia is fiery and gorgeous, exactly as the cover suggests. Joshua is icy and impressive.

Their nature and their behavior is true to their inner magic, and I was fascinated at the apparent ease with which the author appropriately constructed their inner thoughts accordingly.

Their caresses are eloquently described - can you imagine fire and ice intermingling? Whoa! It is really something!

There are several pages where Felicia and Joshua are kept apart by circumstances - I would have enjoyed them engaging in more action and less internal thought. The strength of the story is that it is rich with simmering heat, mystery and suspense; there is hatred and distrust and longing and love.

Surely you need a little magic in your lives - do give this book try!

Meet the Author

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark are sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.
