Rebecca Zanetti’s bio on Amazon says she wasn’t finished with the Dark Protectors series, so she created the Realm Enforces series, to continue some of these characters storylines. Thank Goodness for that! Zanetti created a world in the Dark Protectors series that had good Vampires and bad Vampires, a war, some psychics, shifters and witches, OH My! I, along with the rest of the paranormal loving, reader universe ate these books up, and was clamoring for more when the storyline came to its conclusion. So once again I’ll just say it, I am so glad Ms. Zanetti was not finished with this world!
We had read about Simone in previous books, as the ex girlfriend of Vampire leader Dage, an Irish Witch who had been mysteriously investigating a deadly virus that is being used to bring down her people. In past books, we also met Nick, a demon and right hand man to the evil Demon leader, Suri, but who was actually undercover to usurp Suri’s leadership. That job has been accomplished and he is ready to get back to the love of his life, Simone. She is no longer the young ingenue, but an older, wiser, much more powerful witch and she is not as eager to get back together as Nick. But, oh that chemistry! It undermines her resolve, and once she hears why Nick left her many moons ago, she instantly forgives him. However, she is now being tried for being a traitor to her people, and before they can be happy, they must figure out who set her up.
This was a really fun, sexy, well written continuation of the Realm Enforces series, and many of our favorite cast of characters show up to help Simone and Nick out, so in essence, it was a family reunion too. Zanetti introduces a new race into her world, and I hope she explores them more in a future book. I think Wicked Burn is more fun to read if you have read the other books in the series, but I think it can also be read as a stand alone novel, so pick up a copy and enjoy! For those of you that have read every book in both series, there is a bonus novella of a continuation of Talen and Cara’s story. 😄
