Christina Dodd--Chains of Fire (Chosen Ones series)

Samuel Faa is a Gypsy lawyer with the power to control minds. Isabelle Mason is wealthy, privileged, and refined, and has the gift for healing. Two of the Chosen Ones, they share a past filled with love and betrayal, and a future denied by fate -- until the day they're trapped underground. No way out. No way to deny the passion that still burns beneath the surface. And when danger threatens, Isabelle has only one choice: to place her trust in the power of the one man she could never forgive ... or forget.

**** (4 stars)
Out of the 4 books in this series, I like this one the best. The dynamic between Samuel and Isabelle is great. They don't always get along, they fight, but they love each other. Their character development was great. The series is moving along at a more understandable rate, and the pieces are falling into place. The side story involving Todd seemed out of place when you learn that he is just greedy and is not really an "other". And what is with Irving's nurse? Kind of makes you think she is an "Other". The ending seemed weak, confronting the devil should have had a bigger splash, but tempting man's free will is fairly simple right? I'm sure most people were expecting fire and brimstone, but the devil himself rarely gets his hands dirty. He has others to do his dirty work for him. And the last scene with Samuel and Isabelle was a little to sappy. But all in all, I like the book. Now we wait to find out what's happening with Alexansdr? Who is this girl he is marrying?
