Flameout is a dark, raw and consuming addition to the Soul of Fire series.Emberly, Phoenix, is still working with Jackson to find the collective leader of the virus infected humans. They seem to have hit an impasse in their battle against the virus but have been making some headway into the leader’s true identity.Someone with knowledge about Emberly’s powers is using that knowledge against her, trying to cap her abilities. Each time we turn around, Emberly is racking up more enemies as well as new alliances.Sam, Emberly’s soulmate, keeps delivering devastating blows at Emberly but the worse blow comes when you least expect it, practically ripping Emberly’s as well as our hearts out.The sexual encounters are flammable, and I mean that literally. Emberly requires flame to recharge her energy and the fates are cruel by choosing Sam as her soulmate.Arthur has created a magnificent world with an urban fantasy that hits home with its brutal but realistic tendencies. I am a big fan of Arthur’s writing but something in the pacing of this story kept me from absolutely loving it. Don’t get me wrong, great story that I will continue to follow but I wasn’t riveted to the pages as I have been with all her other works.I received this ARC copy of Flameout from Berkley Publishing Group - Signet in exchange for a honest review.

Good Books Flameout DNF @ 55%As much as I really want to carry on with this series because I do love the character, I just can't bring myself to do it. It is actually getting painful to carry on with the same names and new ones being chucked in over and over. I swear if all the names got pulled out the book it would probably be half as thick! I am getting really tired of reading about a set of missing notes.... FOR THREE BOOKS! I mean, yes I understand those notes are key to help a cure be made but still this is getting a little crazy. Then the co-plot for this book is only being introduced at like 48%? What is going on there? AND lets not forget Jacksons whole little I don't think we'll be together sexually much longer but partnership wise yes. ?.? was my reaction to that. I guess his fae senses picked up on something but still. Honestly I cant even see myself attempting to pick this back up it was just too painful. I may try again depending on what I hear about book four when it comes out in June 2017, but at the moment no chance.

  3. Emberly and Jackson are still desperately struggling to find some answer to the Red Vampire Plague Unfortunately, the notes that may have the cure are nowhere to be found and many factions are gathering around to use them, threaten them or worseAnd her big secret is out far too many people know she s a phoenix, and have magic to counter her fire.I love the whole concept of the phoenixes in this series I love their fire, how their immortality is presented, the awareness of their age and their req [...]


  4. Third in the Souls of Fire urban fantasy series revolving around a phoenix couple and her lover in Melbourne, Australia.My TakeKidnappings, ambush, lies, betrayals, blackmail by the cops, murders, and a heart rending ending will keep you racing through the pages, for Arthur has concocted a nasty collection of bad guys with a horrible fate lying in wait in the form of that plague As if that s not enough, she s holding a prophecy of even worse to come over us, er, I mean, over Em and her friends.A [...]


  5. Emberly is back and she is not going to let anyone push her around Book three in this dark, gritty series, Ms Arthur does not hold back It is one punch after another to bring Emberly to her knees This story must be read after the first two This is not a standalone story.The book immediately dives into where the last one left off Emberly is still working with Jackson to find the notes to cure the virus Unfortunately for them, there are several different parties all trying to get Emberly to turn o [...]


  6. Mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewI enjoyed the first two volumes of the series and it s true that I was eager to discover this third book to learn about our dear Phoenix Indeed, Keri Arthur is an author that I like and few of her books have disappointed me so far Yet it is true that I have struggled with this storyWe find, as usual, our dear Emberly, her brother Sam and Jackson and we are once again embarked on a new adventure in search of documents that everyone desire Although I was carri [...]


  7. I m calling this a DNF at 30% There is nothing in the story that is grabbing my attention and I m already heartily tired of all the characters sex lives need for sex hashed and rehashed Everyone in Arthur s world s really likes sex or has to have sex with a lot of people to survive Okay, I get it Every KA series is the same formula Sex and sex whoever, whenever, wherever Virtually every character is a slut Is this just Arthur s particular mindset, or are all Australians this horny all the time [...]


  8. This series keeps getting better and better Maybe it s because the world building and characters have been given a chance to grow and we ve gotten to know them Anyway another good book by Keri Arthur.



  9. Flameout is the third book in the Souls of Fire series and it s just as fast paced and high impact as the first two books My love for Keri Arthur s work just keeps growing.Flameout follows Emberly, a Phoenix living with her fated mate in Melbourne, as she falls further down the psychotic rabbit hole of Melbourne s changing status quo PIT s manpower is spread thin between struggling to control the outbreak of a lab born virus turning humans and supernaturals alike into pseudo vampires and trackin [...]


  10. The third book in the souls of fire series, and oh me Gawd the book was amazing Intense from the first page to the very end where I cried sooooo much.With every book I love Emberly and The way she fiercely loves and is devoted to the men in her life for different reasons of course to the things she does to keep them safe.This book though will rip you apart at the end It is a roller coaster of emotions, I cannot wait to read the fourth book


  11. Amazing Spoiler Alert Well that was an ending I didn t think would happen Someone Em loves died and the world for a moment burned It s not always a bad thing but a it s not always pleasant I m glad I waited to finish the book till the next was already out so I can now jump right into a world filled with action, mystery and some romance


  12. For the love of all things Please use grammar check Please use an editor The number of missing words some of which changed the entire meaning of the sentence , the wrong forms of words ing instead of ed , doubled words, words in the wrong orderry very distracting The story got 4 stars but the editing brought it down It was a problem in the other two books but really worse this one.


  13. Sam, Jackson and Emberly are all trying to track down the missing research notes and find Luke the head of the Red Cloaks while dodging murder attempts There are some editing issues but overall a decent read Lots of tension and conflict as several different forces pull at Em and Jackson.


  14. This series gets better with every book, the characters I can t get enough of but there is always something you want out of Emberly and Sam Or maybe I m just a romantic and want these two together This is still the only pheonix series to date for me and it will be a hard one to beat.


  15. Very suspenseful.Ca t believe I have to wait all the way until Sept for the last book in the series.What is happening to Jackson Will Sam relent Who blew Luke s brains out All good questions.


  16. HookedI love Keri Arthur s writing style The characters are well developed and so is the world they inhabit Will read all of this series that s available and lust for


  17. WHAT AN ENDING I think I cried outThis book was high octane action from start to finish And that endingYIKESI m diving right into bk 4 Keri Arthur writes kick ass female leads like no other.


  18. Great series, was slow for a while Ended with a big bang in Keri Arthur style Always enjoy reading her books Hoping the 4th installment is good.





  19. I really don t think enough people know about this series It is not same ol same ol They have plot romance action And they are not just about the relationship between two characters.


  20. Emberly and her partner, Jackson, a fire fae, are still searching for the missing papers of scientists researching the virus that causes humans to become vampire like and crazy After an ambush in a cemetery, the investigation leads to some missing witches, and if they fall into the enemy s hands, their spells could be used against Emberly There is a lot to be done, find the witches and the missing papers, stop their nemesis, the leader of the Red Cloaks, and make sure they all come out of the fi [...]


  21. Keri Arthur s Flameout is one hot and explosive read, no puns intended LOL Or not But seriously, when it comes to having a phoenix heroine, is hard to avoid the fire puns Anyway, Flameout is the latest installment in her Souls of Fire series and things really heat up in all sorts of ways Emberly is about to face one epic blowout To start with, this is a series and it should be read in order, because it s one long streaming plot we re focused on with a virus that could infect all of society and b [...]


  22. Emberly and her red hot partner, Jackson, have hit an impasse in their battle against the crazed humans infected by a plague like virus derived from vampire blood Their quest to unearth the leader of the group leads them into an ambush and leaves Emberly at odds with her former lover, Sam, who s pressuring her to join his Paranormal Investigations Team.To make matters worse, three local witches have been kidnapped and if their spells fall into the wrong hands, Emberly s powers could end up smoth [...]


  23. Review originally posted on my blog A Book ObsessionThe best thing by far about this series continues to be Emberly s character and FLAMEOUT was no exception I just simply love how she s so fierce and determined, never wavering from her cause She s willing to sacrifice anything and everything for others at all times, and often than not this selfless nature comes at a great cost to her She s come so close to death times than I can count, and her injury and scar count are countless All this is [...]


  24. Disclaimer I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This review contains spoilers for previous volumes books.After my disappointment with the previous book, I d hoped Flameout would live up to some of the promise of the series Unfortunately, it proved to be an action packed book in which almost nothing happens.As with Wicked Embers, Flameout is very plot driven The vampire battle that ended the last book brought news of new factions within the vampire ranks, [...]


  25. I truly did enjoy this novel immensely It just has a certain flare to it that has caught my eye Of course this could be because of the fact that this is a novel based on phoenixes A novel that I can t see being written by anyone else but Keri Arthur It has a uniqueness that can t just be written by anyone in general Which of course is why this novel, and this series, is just so good.Ever since Emberly found out who the leader of the red cloaks is she s been a wreck Mostly because of the simple f [...]


  26. This book is the third in the Souls of Fire series If you had not read a previous book in this series the Author does a good job of catching you up in the beginning This is an urban fantasy that is set in Melbourne and it is still under the threat of the Crimson Death Virus also known as the red plague The long and short of it is that the virus would take you from being human to something other than human.Emberly Pearson, a phoenix, and Jackson Miller, a fire fae, are teamed up as private invest [...]
