Passion always comes with a price.Aeromancist is Book 3 in the Seven Forbidden Arts series. It contains no cliffhangers and also reads as a standalone. Although you do not need to read the other books or the prequel to Aeromancist to enjoy this story, I recommend that you read them in order for maximum reading pleasure and background information on the other characters.

South African born Charmaine Pauls is a gypsy at heart who likes to look at the world from the lens of her camera. She writes dark and paranormal romance novels. The author currently resides in Chile with her husband and children.
'Aeromancist' is book 3 in the Seven Forbidden Arts series and it's complemented with the novella 'Aeromancist, The Beginning'. (If you read the prequel you will get a better understanding of the story).
The story begins right after Lann has left Santiago and Katherine needs to move on. But the impossible happens and she needs to contact him once more. The consequences of their time together will put Kat's life at risk and all his team. Someone is threatening their safety and their investigation will lead them to some shocking revelations.
The characters continue evolving and Katherine becomes my favorite. She is put in a difficult situation and walks through it with her head held high. There were emotional moments that almost made me cry. The feelings are palpable and the anguish that comes with the acceptance of her fate is very real. Lann shows us his vulnerable side and it's impossible not to love him. Their relationship keeps growing and despite some doubts, facts prove that they truly love each other. This time, there is no tension between Lann and Kat but the passion is ten times better. The temperature rises and reaches unbelievable degrees of hot.
If you read my review for the novella you will see that I complained about the paranormal element. Maybe because of the length of this book here we have a book with a solid paranormal component. The powers of each character are used for the better good and they all have a part to play.
Now, this book has a solid plot, a great writing style, complex characters and high doses of romance. But the final chapters felt rushed. I didn't like how it was solved, it was too quick and too simple. And there is a time frame missing (months) that got me wondering what happened? did they find out something valuable??
Overall, is another great book by Charmaine. She brings us ardent books and leaves us waiting for more.
