THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
I really liked the start of this story with Maya meeting Tristan and them having immediate chemistry. They had an instant attraction, that combusted the moment their eyes locked. I also like that their paranormal powers don’t have any conventional label, that I have ever read before. It was refreshing and unique. What I didn’t like was the “danger” portion of the story. It felt very forced and out of character for Maya to find herself in that position. Especially after Tristan getting so upset with her for what she is now contemplation doing. It felt forced and didn’t mix well with the characters or the rest of the story. I would have enjoyed Fire more if this entire portion was omitted. With that, it was still an entertaining, quick, fun read with unique characters. I am giving it 3 Boundless Stars.
