Here's a little about A Fire in the Flesh (Flesh and Fire, #3)
Add on [goodreads]
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her Flesh and Fire series…
The only thing that can save the realms now is the one thing more powerful than the Fates.
After a startling betrayal ends with both Sera and the dangerously seductive ruler of the Shadowlands she has fallen madly in love with being held captive by the false King of the Gods, there is only one thing that can free Nyktos and prevent the forces of the Shadowlands from invading Dalos and igniting a War of Primals.
Convincing Kolis won’t be easy, though – not even with a lifetime of training. While his most favored Revenant is insistent that she is nothing more than a lie, Kolis’s erratic nature and twisted sense of honor leave her shaken to the core, and nothing could’ve prepared her for the cruelty of his Court or the shocking truths revealed. The revelations not only upend what she has understood about her duty and the very creation of the realms but also draw into question exactly what the true threat is. However, surviving Kolis is only one part of the battle. The Ascension is upon her, and Sera is out of time.
But Nyktos will do anything to keep Sera alive and give her the life she deserves. He’ll even risk the utter destruction of the realms, and that’s exactly what will happen if he doesn’t Ascend as the Primal of Life. Yet despite his desperate determination, their destinies may be out of their hands.
But there is that foreseen unexpected thread—the unpredictable, unknown, and unwritten. The only thing more powerful than the Fates…

I have no idea how to start this review and it’s often the case when it comes to Jennifer L. Armentrout’s (JLA or Jen) books. I swear while reading this one, I wanted to throw it as much as I wanted to hug it. After finishing this one, I could understand the need to be a 4th book because I can’t imagine how big it would have been considering we know quite a few things still needs to happen.
Well, I’ll go with my usual disclaimer: if you haven’t read the previous books in the Fire and Flesh series, please do not read this review since it’s a big possibility that spoilers from the previous books will be mentioned. Also, I recommend highly to go read them if you haven’t read them because along with the Blood and ash series, it is my favorite JLA book series.
The book continues where the previous one left us and honestly, from this moment to the next, there is not a boring moment. Even the fillers in this book are filled with information that you know will be useful later on in this series or the other.
Honestly, I didn’t know what I was expecting when I went into this book because I knew that with Sera now being captured by Kolis, this book wasn’t going to be a walk in the park, and I was right as much as I was wrong.
Jen has a way to make you feel through the characters even the ones you don’t want to. The way she wrote Kolis is something that I wasn’t expecting. I liked that I was surprised that I could feel things for him other than hatred (though still the strongest and main feeling hahaha).
Sera’s strength in this book is once more shown throughout the whole book. I honestly felt for her through it all; from her fears to her determination, she powers through even in moments of doubts. I feel like this book is really the epitome of what Sera was always meant to realize she could do.
Sera and Ash’s bond is so strong and as much as I would like to add more than this simple sentence, I feel I’m about to spoil something, but yeah, these two are just a new level of chemistry.
And so many reveals are in this book and my mind was blown quite a few times through my reading. Some of them were something I wasn’t expecting at all, and I love that. I love how I am always surprised with these books.
So much is said and done in this book and I feel like a lot of what’s to come in the blood and ash series were hinted in this book and as much as I would like to believe that I am good figuring them out (FYI I am not :P), I feel like whatever my mind can come up with, Jen will find a way to surprise us again by adding her own special twist into them.
Overall, this book is a 5-star read and I’m just waiting on the fourth book now because I know a lot has happened in this one, but since she had to add another book; I feel we need to be ready to what else she’s going to put us through to get to the end of this series.
I was giving an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
