Heart of Fire (Alice Worth #2) Reviews
After just two books, Lisa Edmonds has moved her way to the top of my Must Read Authors list. The elaborate world she has created around Alice is dark and fascinating. Alice Worth reminds me of a combination of Wynonna Earp, Jessica Jones, and Kate Daniels. She is funny, kind, sarcastic, lost, and so flawed. She is utterly human. Albeit, a very powerful human. No one tortures Alice more than Alice herself. And can't most of us say that? Heart of Fire picks up not too long after the events in Hea ...more
I enjoyed this installment and am looking forward to the next one. There isn't really anything new here as far as urban fantasy goes - she is a P.I who is hiding her magic and who she is. But I like Alice for the most part and the world Lisa Edmonds has created.
A few things - I was worried where the romantic story line was going and getting a bit frustrated with it, some of that has been cleared up in this book thankfully. We also have a lot of unanswered plot points but we did find out more abo ...more
A classic UF. Not that many around anymore, and it's a pity. Glad I stumbled into this series.
Solid 5 stars.
You know what? I read this book with a lot of stress....just because how Lisa Edmonds played with my heart on the romance part!
Alice Worth is clearly an interesting character. While these Alice Worth series have all thing paranormal going on with Alice as a supernatural detective, her shifter lover, Ghost side-kick, evil demons and so on it is actually all about Alice herself. Alice has secrets and haunting past and she guards them with layers and layers of half-truth and lies I wi ...more
The Alice Worth series quickly turned into a must-read series for me.
Alice is growing away from the loner she was when we first met her. She is still guarded and wary of accepting help, but she is slowly opening herself up to others. We continue to learn more about her past and unfortunately her past is slowly creeping closer to her new life. As soon as you think you have a handle on what she can do, another level of power is revealed. She truly is a bad-ass and it's amazing to witness what she ...more
(No spoilers.) Alice Worth is definitely a flawed character, which is understandable based on her past experiences. I love authors who allow these types of characters to progress in positive ways as a normal outgrowth of the story. The plot of this book is just as compelling as the previous book and the characters are true to their natures. That's not always the case in this genre - which I consider urban fantasy - as sometimes authors let "magic" or otherworldly influences push characters in di ...more

Alice is a bit of a mess after the previous book ended. She's having guy troubles, and she isn't eating or sleeping much. Her guilt is eating away at her. But when she finally starts to snap out of it, it may lead her to a case that will make her whole life change and not for the better.
This book was good. I wouldn't say it was as good as the first one, but it was still pretty good. Alice had a lot to work through, and she needed help to do it, but it w ...more
this book is the poster child for action, magic and butt kicking. The main character Alice is such a loyal person with tons of integrity. Both butt kicking and vulnerable. She was real. you could easily connect with her. I loved the banter between characters also.
