Review: Of Flame and Fate - Cecy Robson
Born of two witches, Destiny is revered among the supernatural elite for her acute ability to predict the future. Her biggest prophecy involves Taran’s sister, Celia, whom Destiny decreed will bear children strong enough to take on the evil that’s rising. Yet Destiny is not alone in her predictions, or individuality.
When Johnny Fate, a rock star among humans and a male version of Destiny is discovered, his powers and Destiny’s clash, triggering the start of Destiny’s demise and altering the fate of Celia’s unborn children.
Taran, her werewolf lover Gemini, and their allies must determine if it’s Fate who will decide what will become of Celia’s children, or if their lives and the world will perish with Destiny.

Of Flame and Fate is the eighth book in Cecy Robson's Weird Girls series and it's another action packed adventure that is full of humorous moments but can also be quite dark at times. Taran is in a much better place now that she's getting to grips with her new abilities and her relationship with Gemini is back on an even keel, things still aren't perfect between them (he's a little too overprotective and Taran hides things from him because she doesn't want to get into an argument which means she ends up putting herself into dangerous situations without backup) but it's a definite improvement from where they were at in the last book.
This story focuses on the larger role that the Weird sisters, and their future children, have in protecting the universe. There are a few different prophecies at play and the sisters are now stuck between the living embodiments of both Destiny and Fate waiting to see which one will come out on top. Nothing has ever been easy for these sisters and even when Celia in particular should be enjoying her happily ever after their future safety is far from certain. Celia and her unborn child are both major targets for the forces of evil and there is nothing Taran won't put herself through to protect them both.
I've always loved the relationship between the sisters, growing up they never had anyone to rely on but each other so they are a very tight unit. They all have different strengths and weaknesses but they balance each other out and as a team they're pretty unstoppable. Their family has slowly grown to include Aric, Gemini, Koda and a few others but they still find it difficult to trust most of Aric's pack considering everything Celia was put through previously. It's interesting to see how the dynamics are slowly changing though and I'm very excited to see what happens between Emme and a certain werewolf she's falling hard for. It's about time for her to find some happiness!
I always look forward to new books in this series so now I've finished reading this I'll go back to impatiently waiting for the next one.
