Parental Guidance

Fire Light

Fire Light is a young to new adult urban fantasy novel. Readers should expect it to have intense action and fighting scenes, with a balance of sexual tension/romance. The bad guys are bad, the good guys are good but make a wrong choice a few times.

Here is one readers opinion:

“Thanks for keeping it pretty ‘darn’ clean.” — Paul

Books don’t have ratings exactly. I would say this book is PG-13. I thought I would provide a parental guide, like you see for movies on IMDB.

They do not know how to tell the difference between an evil book and a good book that depicts evil. – Orson Scott Card

In my opinion, this a good book that depicts evil.

Warning! These include spoilers.
