Burning Skies, on the wings of Vamps!

Burning Skies, by author Caris Roane, is the second novel in her World of Ascension series. Caris brings the heat yet again in her latest novel. Fire and passion burn bright as the sexy winged vamps take me on a fun adventure. :)


A vampire warrior in exile, Marcus Amargi resists the call to return to the ranks of the Guardians who fight the death vamp armies. Here on Mortal Earth, Marcus has another battle on his hands—the seductive lure of Havily Morgan, the woman meant for him whose blood he craves. The one who comes to him in dreams—and demands his surrender…

A beautiful immortal with extraordinary powers, Havily lives in the realm of Second Earth but, in her fantasies, yearns for her winged lover Marcus. Soon, their bond will be put to the ultimate test. When their bloodthirsty enemies set the night on fire with sky-blazing weapons, Marcus and Havily must unite body and soul, to unleash the full power of their passion—and fight fire with fire…

Marcus has taken a break from the Guardians, after losing his sister he leaves Second Earth and builds himself a new empire as CEO of a major business on mortal Earth. Vowing never to return, Marcus leaves behind the warriors he once fought side by side with. But things change through a series of events when he happens to meet Havily his breh-hedden (mate), who he once thought a myth. Also it turns out that much like his former brother in arms Kerrick (from book one Ascension) he has been forced into a very unwanted situation.

Havily has been loved by her close friends, the Guardians, and has major issues with the fact that Marcus bailed on them all those years ago. This continues to be a constant issue between them throughout the book. Drawn to Marcus like a moth to a flame, she is struggling to keep her head on straight while the world she once knew is falling down around her. Plagued with nightmares and some crazy dream walking, Havily seems to hold the key to unfolding plots....I wish I could tell you more. But I can't! You have to read to find out.

Steamy romance is consistently going on between these two, with action and adventure that will certainly take you on a ride. The vamps leader, Endelle, continues with the snarky humor and outrageous costumes. Love that chick! A couple little downsides for me was a bit too much talk about what Havily and Marcus were wearing all the time. I like designer labels as much as the next gal but I would have liked a bit more action over all the clothes talk. Just my tastes and NOT a big deal at all. And one last thing, I felt like Marcus lost just a bit of his edge in this book. I want my Warrior to kick butt and take names! I love this series so much and that's why I am going to nitpick just a tad. :)

Grab this book. Devour it and don't look back!
