The other person invited to this particular party is Carly Thomas. Her dad raised her in the middle of Mount Hood Aviation after he mother died when she was a child. He went out the way he lived, trapped by a fire he was fighting when she was Her fiance was taken from her a year previously, also consumed by the fire he was fighting. Steve waltzes actually limps in, and is captivated by the very beautiful and extremely intelligent also incredibly driven woman he meets.
That he continues to put his foot into the wrong place every time they talk makes things easier, at least for her. But as they work together fighting the biggest fire the Pacific Northwest has seen in half a century, they find out just what the other is made of — and that they belong together no matter what it takes.
The heroes who jump smoke may do different jobs than the pilots and crew of SOAR, but their lives are every bit as dangerous — and thrilling. And thanks to the presence of Henderson and Beale, occasionally not all that far off from those clandestine missions that SOAR flew. However, their presence as newbies to MHA allows the author to provide readers with a lot of background and information on the history and methods for fighting these devastating fires. While it occasionally verges on infodumping, the info being dumped is fascinating.
It is unusual to see what happens to the hero and heroine after the happily ever after, so it was great to see how the two Majors move into civilian life. They are absolutely awesome, and it was fun to see Kee Stevenson again and hear how Archie and Dilya are doing. But the primary couple in this story is Steve and Carly.
Although the injury that Steve suffered before the book starts was physical, most of the lingering damage is emotional. His story is that of finding himself again. Carly helps alot, but he needs to see that what he can contribute in the present is every bit as valuable, albeit very different, than what he did before. Carly, on the other hand, while extremely competent at the job she loves, is in an emotional blackout.
Everyone in MHA knows and loves her, and they do what they can not to touch her where it hurts. Steve wants to know her, and in order for that to happen, she has to reveal what went wrong in her past. Eventually, they would have resented each other too much to keep going.
Steve and Carly bring each other back to life. It makes a great romance because they are equal — either they rescue each other or they reach towards each other out of their emotional deserts. With Mal sent to track a vicious killer, Syd is forced to infiltrate a pharmaceutical company responsible for a drug that turns vampires into real monsters. A wrong turn throws her into the middle of a vampire power play.
But choosing what feels right might turn out all wrong. The story in Falling from the Light is definitely a reminder that the vampires that have become the heroes of so much of urban fantasy and paranormal romance draw their origins from the horror side of the house. In this book, very bad vampires do bad things to bad people, and also do bad things to good people.
Even good vampires spend so much energy posturing for the nastier members of their group that they spray a LOT of collateral damage among their human and vampire companions. In other words, this is the story of how Sydney falls from the light into nearly permanent darkness, and then has to claw her way back.

Of course, somebody has to die to make that happen. The Night Runner series takes place in a world where the vampires have not just come out of the coffin, but where they seem to have their fangs into a whole lot of the criminal organizations and quite a few private companies.
When you live forever, you have lots of time to compound interest on your investments. He pretends to be worse than he is to protect her from the true villains, but nothing quite works like they planned. It takes a supreme sacrifice, blind faith, and one hell of a lot of luck to reach the light at the end of this tunnel. What happens to her is very rough. There are no laws that protect her except the law of the jungle, and vampires are excellent at maneuvering that to their own advantage.
Sydney only has one ace in the hole; she is immune to vampire glamour, but no one knows why. At least not until the boss vampire reveals it to her in this book, just in time for her to use those talents to save the day. Or at least the epilog. The Director is kind of a placeholder. At least until the Black Friday Book Bonanza starts next weekend! Yes, I know, even more than I do now. We are moving back to Atlanta in two weeks, and the point is usually to reduce the amount of stuff that has to be transported. The tales tell of three sisters, daughters of the high king.
The eldest, a valiant warrior-woman, heir to the kingdom. The youngest, the sweet beauty with her Prince Charming. No one says much about the middle princess, Andromeda. Andi, the other one. She enjoys the company of her horse more than court, and she has a way of blending into the shadows. Until the day she meets a strange man riding, who keeps company with wolves and ravens, who rules a land of shapeshifters and demons.
In a moment everything changes: Her father, the wise king, becomes a warlord, suspicious and strategic. Whispers call her dead mother a traitor and a witch.

I watched Maleficent while I was in the middle of reading The Mark of the Tala , and was amazed at how well the two stories resonated together. So much of the action, including a war and a whole lot of death on both sides, occurs because both of the Kings disavowed their own words and behavior; and because they enviously want to possess something that cannot ever be theirs. Back to the book. King Uorsin has three daughters, Ursula, Andromeda and Amelia. Ursula is his heir and his warleader. She is his right hand in all things. If the name Uorsin sounds like bear, well, Ursula means little bear.
And so she is. But Princess Andromeda is named for a constellation in the Autumn night sky, and the story behind it is the myth of a woman chained to a rock for sacrifice to a beast.
