Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them. 

While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts. 

Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.

The thrill and suspense that were focal elements in T.M. Goeglein’s Cold Fury are magnified in the sequel, Flicker & Burn. Sara Jane Rispoli is still without a family and her determination is as strong as ever. The path to finding clues to their whereabouts gets a bit bizarre when a group of pale-skinned beings with vivacious red eyes are hot on her tracks. They want her dead and Sara Jane must do what it takes if she wants to ever see her family again. She’s learning more about her cold fury and her family legacy. Keeping a boyfriend will require deep considerations as all of her time is mainly dedicated to finding her family.

The Cold Fury (The Ghiaccio Furioso) of Sara Jane Rispoli’s family legacy is quite lethal. Goeglein’s writing style manages to capture her furious with precision that readers will be just as fumed as her. She’s no longer na├»ve and has grown up a lot. She’s taken all of these bad situations that she caught herself into and used it as a way in redefining her views and who she is. It also helps her to make the right decisions and avoid becoming someone she doesn’t want to become.

Dissecting everything in the Rispoli Notebook, there are secrets about her family that she would rather forget. The pace of the sequel is a bit different from the first but it allows readers to finally get some deep insights towards her Cold Fury. There are plenty of action and revelation that will keep the pages turning. Characters are vividly live and come from a spectrum of different personalities. Her overweight sidekick, Doug, is all comedy and the very handsome Max made the right companions for SJ.

The paranormal elements are more prominent this time around with the “Ice Cream Creatures”. This great plot delivered a handful of twists that leaves readers in shock and totally surprised when they are revealed. It was built to be a good series and Flicker & Burn is proving it to be an amazing one. Goeglein is paving a path that many readers will sure to follow as they are dying to see how everything is connected and how it will end in the final book. Flicker & Burn will leave a scar on you, the good kind, and one that will remind you how remarkable it is.
