The Horde Wars - Wanton Fire by Sherri L. King is the second book in The Horde Wars series. This book continues Sherri's highly acclaimed saga of the Shikar warriors and battle against the Daemon Horde.
The Daemon Horde is changing. They are becoming more organized, more like a military unit, using logic and strategy. They aren't just mindless beasts any more. They are becoming the hunters, and their prey is the Shikars.
The Shikar team, while on the hunt for Daemons, discovers a rave club in the city. Everything--the lights, the music, and the people--enthralls Cinder, the strongest of the Incinerator Caste. There is one person who catches his eye: the female DJ. She is so involved in her own world of music and dance that she seems to Cinder not unlike a pagan goddess--especially with the crowd dancing and seemingly worshipping at her feet. She stirs in him a hunger, a need, and a passion that he never felt for a human woman. He wants her as he has never wanted another and means to have her at any cost.
Steffy makes the mistake of following Cinder out of the club. What she finds is a very new world filled with monsters, warriors, and a secret society of watchers. She tries to return to her old life only to find that she has been marked by the Daemons. She wants nothing more than to be left alone. Try as she might there is nothing that will free her from the man who has vowed to protect her. But with Cinder's fiery kiss is the promise of love; can she take the chance? She tries to deny both herself and Cinder that love, no matter how much she yearns for it. Every shadow contains the shade of death. Cinder must do everything he can to save Steffy but will it be enough?
Again Sherri King creates such strong heart wrenching characters that you cannot help but fall in love with them and their story. I love the sassy dialogue and the quick pace. Before you know it you are on the last page wanting more. You cannot miss with this story.
