Review: Fire On The Island by JK Hogan

Goodreads Synopsis
“She who wields the mark is the barrier between man and monster. She is the daughter of gods, the mother of man, protector of all. Vigilati Usque Ad Mortem”

All Isla Macallen wanted was a simple existence on her little Scottish island, free from her mother’s insanity and the prying eyes of neighbors. What she got was embroiled in a war for the souls of mankind. A war of good versus evil, of witches versus demons, and Isla learns that she alone can end it.

Dr. Jeremiah Rousseau was a self-proclaimed nomad, traveling the world researching paranormal phenomena. He doesn’t expect his research to lead him to Scotland, and to the woman who will turn his world upside down.

Together with a facetious shapeshifting animal spirit guide, Jeremiah and Isla discover that she is part of an ancient bloodline bred to protect the gateways between the human world and the spirit world, to keep evil demons from destroying them. They must find the key to defeating Alastore, the demon king, and closing the gate before Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is lifted. As the war for their souls wages around them, Isla and Jeremiah will risk it all for love—a love neither had ever thought possible.

First thoughts after…..
Awesome!  Closure but leading into another book!   

How Distracted Did I Get?
Isla is one tough cookie!  She’s been through heck and back all her life, a pariah in her own home town, because of a mark on her neck she keeps to herself . She sticks to her house and the business she owns.  Enter Dr. Jeremiah Rousseau.  He has a PhD in Parapsychology.  Jeremiah came to her town to research the possible witch on the island.  It was instant attraction but is it enough to get them through the battle that is about to take place?
How Many Baskets?
Fire on the Island is a wonderful book that tempts you with mystery that pulls you in and won’t let you go.  I had a difficult time putting it down.
