From Amazon: THE EVERYDAY WORLD IS FULL OF STRANGE AND MAGICAL CREATURES, AND SOME OF THEM DON’T PLAY NICE … Protecting innocents in the mortal world is not a job to be taken lightly, and life for the paranormal Younglings is spiralling back to Insanityville. Stranded spirits, violent, rogue vampires and evil demons are bad enough … but now there’s a serial killer on the loose. The cunning vampire ministry will go to any lengths to secure the half-angel’s blood, but can they find out Eve’s identity?

As normal, trouble follows the Younglings like a menacing cloud, and this time it arrives in the guise of savage combat vampires. To make matters worse, merciless witch hunters are stalking Millie—they will do anything to see her dead. Can the Younglings protect her?

Being one of the Younglings can be bad for the health … FIRE & MAGIC is the second book in THE YOUNGLINGS series.

Filled with magic, suspense, danger, sizzling action and adventure, a large dose of humour and thrilling paranormal romance, this book will take the reader on a rollercoaster of a ride.
My Review: I didn’t know at the I started reading this book, that it is book two in a trilogy. However, that fact is not an issue, as the book is written such that enough from book one is brought into this one to make this book a standalone read, except, one will want to read book three when it comes out with the cliffhanger this book leaves! This book has it all, the magical characters exhibit a full range of emotions, and one particular love scene is written in such a way that anyone would yearn for love, and written without coarse language. That makes even that scene a cut above for all the feels and emotions without coarse language or scene descriptions added. The Younglings face their share of family, battles, love, and more in this epic book. Although The Younglings are a younger group, one need not be age 17 to 30 in order to feel like this book suits them. Anyone who loves the supernatural world will love this five star book!
