Taran Wird, who commands the power to wield fire and lightning, is an oddity in the supernatural world. But neither Taran nor her unique sisters compare to the bizarre entity known as Destiny. And Taran is assigned to protect her.
Born of two witches, Destiny is revered among the supernatural elite for her acute ability to predict the future. Her biggest prophecy involves Taran’s sister, Celia, whom Destiny decreed will bear children strong enough to take on the evil that’s rising. Yet Destiny is not alone in her predictions, or individuality.
When Johnny Fate, a rock star among humans and a male version of Destiny is discovered, his powers and Destiny’s clash, triggering the start of Destiny’s demise and altering the fate of Celia’s unborn children.
Taran, her werewolf lover Gemini, and their allies must determine if it’s Fate who will decide what will become of Celia’s children, or if their lives and the world will perish with Destiny.

Cecy Robson has once again written another wonderful installment of the Weird Girls series! This series consists of the Wird sisters, four sisters who are human but due to a curse were each given unique abilities that make them stand out in the paranormal world of witches, were’s and vampires. The first five novels are from the POV of the eldest sister, Celia Wird. Right now, fans are now following Taran Wird, the second oldest of the Wird sisters, since book 6. Taran has always been the most explosive sister both in personality and magical ability. Although due to the events in A Curse Unbroken, Taran was left as a hurt and vulnerable woman until Of Flame and Light. Now the Taran who’s known for her sass is back and better than ever who is determined to protect her sister from any threat.
In Of Flame and Fate, Taran gets tasked with protecting Destiny, a powerful prophet, who Taran doesn’t really enjoy being around with. So when Destiny attends
a concert held in Santa Barbara, Taran is forced to tag along in order to protect her. However, hell breaks loose at the concert when Destiny ends up meeting the rock star, Johnny Fate, who is performing and who turns out to be a Fate which is the male counterpart to Destiny. What’s worse is only one can live because it is said that a Destiny and a Fate cannot exist at the same time or else there will be an imbalance.
Overall, Of Flame and Fate was an enjoyable and engaging story along with the characters. As always, Cecy Robson gave us a novel with plenty of action-packed, romantic, and humorous scenes. Like I said before, it was great to see Taran back as the sassy, sarcastic, and confident woman we first saw in Sealed with a Curse. Also, Taran and Gemini’s relationship is no longer the strained relationship we saw in the last couple of books although there’s still a few bumps they need to work on. Yes, I can definitely say that fans who have been following the series will enjoy this installment and I recommend fans to read it.
