I read Mortal Fire
by C.F. Dunn and enjoyed it except for the cliffhanger ending. I like novels that
conclude with all questions answered, tidied up, and that leave me satisfied. This
book isn’t exactly like that.
When offered an opportunity by Kregel Publications to receive
a complimentary copy of Death Be Not
Proud by C.F. Dunn in exchange for an honest review, I jumped at the chance.
I expected to find answers to the questions left unsettled in Mortal Fire.
In Death Be Not Proud,
historical researcher Emma D’Eresby is recovering in England from the almost
fatal attack she experienced in Mortal
Fire. She’s still in love with Dr. Matthew Lynes, who frightened her away
with questions like: Why is he super
strong? Why do his wounds heal so quickly, and just how old is he? She
begins to search out information about him by investigating his ancestors, and
Emma isn’t prepared for what she finds.
Again, C.F. Dunn’s writing brings you right into the story
and captures your imagination. I enjoyed every page…right up to another abrupt
ending. Matthew and Emma are reunited, sort
of, but their future is left uncertain.
I suppose Ms. Dunn intends to write a third novel
and allow Emma to possibly integrate into Dr. Lynes’s family. Some of the
mysteries surrounding him are yet to be revealed, and at the very end Emma
witnesses something odd as she’s about to enter Matthew’s home. One more cliffhanger.
If you don’t mind leaving a book with more questions than it
answers, then you will enjoy this one. I suppose I’ll gravitate to her third
novel in the hope that all will eventually be revealed. — Gail Lewis
