Audrey Whitticomb saved her entire city. The superhero Morning Star who just happens to be Audrey’s mom might have played a small part, and her sidekick, Leon-Audrey’s sort-of boyfriend, who is gorgeous and frustrating-maybe helped, too. But after two peaceful months, there is a vicious new threat in Minneapolis. Like others before her, she seeks the Remnant, a Kin girl who has the power to unleash the inhabitants of the Beneath.
But to what end? Audrey already has a ton on her plate: But when she develops a powerful new ability, Audrey seizes on the chance to betuany, despite her mother’s protests and Leon’s pleas.
As Audrey gets closer to figuring out Susannah’s motives and tracking down the Remnant, she’ll uncover more than she bargained for. The terrible truth is staring Audrey in the face. But knowing the truth and accepting it are very different things. In the week running up to it, I had a string of reads, of which a 3 star was the best rating and DNFed two books, one of which made me rage and the other of which literally gave me a headache.
There are SO many wonderful things about this series. First of all, Audrey Whitticomb has a fabulous narrative voice. Then, there are her two best friends, Gideon and Tink.
Healthy friendships in YA! This is something to be treasured, yo. Speaking of healthy relationships, can we talk about Audrey and her mom?
Bfight mother may be busy being the superhero Morning Star, but she loves and parents her daughter. They have a really close relationship, though not quite Gilmore Girls close. Audrey jokes with her friends and family in this way that strikes me as incredibly realistic. In both books, the humor and affection in the dialog broght jived with me.
On top of all that, the plot of Burn Bright is pretty fabulous. Burn Bright is one of those books that manages to be both flufftastic and dark all at once. Perhaps my favorite thing here though is how trope-aware Frenette seems to be. The villain, Susannah, is super creepy. Not only that, but she actually thinks. She makes use of any resources at her disposal. Unlike a lot of novels, the villain really does seem like a problem.
Also, on the trope-awareness scale is the treatment of the romance. Now, I totally shipped the couple in the previous frenehte, but they definitely had some complications because of events.
Frenette resolved that in the best frenetye way for the given situation. What Left Me Wanting More: Maybe another fifty pages to delve further into the friendships?
Bgight love Gideon and Tink, and more of them would not have gone amiss. Burn Bright blows Dark Star out of the water. This is without a doubt one of my favorite paranormal series.
Review: Burn Bright by Bethany Frenette
Could I please have book three immediately? She has an adorable boyfriend in Leon, but things are complicated by the Guardian bond.
When a new ability starts developing, she looks about as to how to best help out the Kin. Even dwarfed by the power of her mother, the Morning Star, she manages to shine on her own. The major arc of the story is the mystery of the Remnant and how the Harrowers are trying to find that person. Audrey, equipped with her knowing, tries to find out before they can but sometimes Knowing itself is a curse, as evidenced by that amazing twist in the end.
What I really liked was how the author had set up the twist from the first book itself — events that had been hinted at but not really pursued. The writing was smooth and well-detailed, with such depth and dimension given to each character, and voice through Audrey, a really perceptive individual. Even besides her Knowing, she herself is able to read people effortlessly, and how she empathizes with everyone is clearly a testament of her good heart.
Her romance with Leon is delved into so beautifully — they are bonded but there is no co-dependence. It may seem like she has needed him to rescue her, but she is certainly not helpless.
The dynamic of their relationship is quite interesting and I could go on and on about the other character relationships too. My only disappointment was that the Calling of a Guardian and the inner working of the Kin are not so well-explained.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed it immensely, even the way it was and hoping for another amazing sequel soon enough. Received a copy from Disney-Hyperion via NetGalley for a honest review. Star ratings in yellow are from our Staff Reviewers.
