Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here.
I wanted to read Ignite because I enjoyed the first one, the strong main character in Alexa. I didn't really remember much from the first book besides that, but this one drew me in well. It gave enough recall in a natural way so that details came back.
my tweet (longer) review
Alexa is still guarding the king, the man she loves, but pretending like that's not an issue. I love how this continued and the romance arch was great. And it was a new dynamic since everyone knows that Alex is Alexa now. I got caught up in the book again and will def be continuing. There are so many challenges they had to overcome and mysteries to solve in this one. A good amount was solved and there was def enough questions and things that I will definitely continue.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Ever thought about or joined the service?
