Samantha wakes up half way across the country from where she lives, in a town that is earily similar to the one she grew up in, complete with the stuff of nightmares. She runs into Zander Smith, a Lieutenant in the SPIRIT agency which tracks down paranormal threats. Though they've just met, Samantha and Zander both feel a connection and as soon as the spend time together it becomes clear that they have powers and that they're growing...Sam can call forth fire, whereas Zander can call forth storm, and the connection between them only grows further when it becomes clear that they have a mental connection to each other as well. But things from their past are back to haunt them, and they have to figure it out before it is too late.
It took me a little while to get into Fire Storm, which was more to do with my mood than anything else I think. Especially because Fire Storm has all the makings of a great read for me, an original concept, a love story and plenty of action. Once I got into the book properly I did want to know what was going to happen next and how the whole thing would be resolved, and I was surprised at the conclusion, it wasn't somthing I was expecting.
The relationship between Zander and Sam moved quickly, though because of the lore and mythology surrounding the book and the characters this was a believable quick. I quite liked the fact that relationship wise there were very few hiccups, instead they came from the paranormal elements of the book.
While characters gaining powers such as Zander and Sam gained isn't an unusual plot feature, the way that this was interwoven with the demons wasn't something that I've ever come across before. I won't say that I fully understand the demons, but I hope to learn more about them in future books!

and Pandora on random/shuffleANNA NEUVILLE had lived in Burke Flats most of her youth, had seen the comings and goings of the strange little town, but for her there was nothing magical about the place. Scary, dark, secretive, and definitely a place of unrest-those were the words that she would use to describe how she felt about her home in the mountains. That was until she met William Stiles. FIRST LIEUTENANT WILLIAM STILES never liked being so close to any hot spot. Something in Burke Flats wasn't just hot, it was steaming, especially out by the marsh. He was a strong-headed lifer; there was no way he was getting out of the service anytime soon. He had entered straight from high school and moved up the ranks quickly, gaining a college education and taking command in Iraq several times. He had a Master's in Homeland Security and a Bachelor's in Strategic Leadership. He had never questioned his abilities until Anna stepped into his life. PEIGHTON WEAK She was the one that Dell always called in. There was nothing that Peighton couldn’t figure out when she’s put in the right situation. Having witnessed Dell’s death, Peighton set out to solve the mystery that surrounded Aldenville, and she had Scott by her side to do it. Peighton came with the highest recommendations in her field, and Dell always requested her when she stumbled on the black hole. She is an expert at dry cave diving and anthropology. SPECIAL AGENT SCOTT EMBRY Embry was an ex-Special Ops, if anyone could ever be one, who transferred to the FBI’s special new division after his medical discharge. It was strange to step into a world outside his own after living in the military ranks for so long, but at the same time he had seen some things on his tours that brought the rest of the “known” world collapsing down on him. The S.P.I.R.I.T. division of the FBI was a bit different than the military units deployed around the country. Most of the agents he knew were the first in after everything was cleared and taken care of, but with Embry and his canine companion, they seemed to be the ones that stepped in just as everything came to a boil and things weren’t looking good for the unit members.
