Firefly (Cicada #2)
“The darkest days are ahead of us,” Andrew whispered as the drape of shadows slipped away, allowing Blair to awaken. And in her heart of hearts she knew it was true. The unmistakable signs were all around her, growing within her. She was becoming something more than human. All she could do was accept the inevitable.
“I’ve become a freak … an alien. I no longer belong to the human world,” Blair told her true love, and he held her close, determined never to give her up.
“I’d stay in this darkness forever as long as I could be with you. Wherever you are … that’s my home.” Everett meant every word. In fact, he’d willingly give up his own life to protect the girl he’d always loved.
But there was a storm brewing … a firestorm so strong and catastrophic that it could keep them apart forever.
That storm roared into town wearing a brown leather bomber jacket and riding a motorcycle.
Ash was like a secret in human clothing … a dangerous secret. Everything about him was mesmerizing – right down to the swirls of ink that flowed over the smooth muscles across his chest and around his arms. Being with him was like playing with fire.
Blair knew all about playing with fire.
She knew something else, too. A small quiet voice deep within whispered that she really would be separated from everyone and everything she’d known and loved.
Because some secrets run too deep.
Sooooo….It’s my second time round reading this novel, and I fell in love with “bug boy” all over again, don’get get me wrong I fell in love with Everett in Cicada, book #1, but I’ve forgotten all the “fireflies” I get when ready about him and Blair…..I get al goosepimply…if that’s even a word.
I’m a bad blogger in forgetting how good the creativity that Belle writes in Firely is, as this is amazing, The past gives us the start of some answers and the present that we know we shall love the most…
Everett;…..This “bug boy”, he couldn’t get any sexier, he’s so dedicated to Blair and their love, he won’t let her go without a fight, and a fight he’s prepared to fight to his death, if it means he gets to keep his Blair.
Blair;… Her world has changed as she has changed in the most unusual ways. This follows her transformation as a mere human into something more ethereal.
“Leaning back against my bed, I looked around my room, Still a bit stunned, realizing that something in Everett’s letter had awakened something inside of me. Something in his letter had brought something to life…something more powerful than I could immediately realize. Something I’m not sure I liked at all. Because it seemed like I was definitely turning into something. Something that was not wholly human.” ~Blair
It takes paranormal into a high new level of intrigue and mystery, I loved seeing all the other characters from Cicada, Natalie, David & Andrew, but I felt like Blair was much stronger in this book.
I felt so much for her struggling so hard to figure out what was going on, how she could ever accept it, and how to say goodbye to her past and her dreams for the future.
“I was no longer the changeling Cicada who’d just begun to leave her shell. Neither was I the innocent Firefly flitting through the night, watching from the sidelines. I was a Queen…the Monarch butterfly. And I was ready to spread my wings and soar. ~ Blair
I’m really excited to see where the next book goes, as yet again, I’m left with a lot of questions!
There are many twists and turns in this book. It’s hard to know sometimes too, who is good and who isn’t. I cannot wait to see what book three will bring!
