About the Series: Power of Four
The Power of Four is a fantasy series. It follows fourteen year old Aaron Adams as he enters the realm of the mages, leaving behind the human realm that he's lived in all his life.

Run To Earth is the first book of the series, which sees Aaron struggle to find his place in a new society as well as come to grips with his newly discovered powers. Very soon, Aaron comes to learn that this new world is teetering on the edge of a brutal war, one that is ripping it apart, and taking the human world down with it. The only hope for both realms lies with the Hunters, a group of young mages that battle demons. With little understanding and hardly any training, Aaron finds himself taking on the form of a Hunter, facing demons he never knew existed.

Playing With Fire is the second book in the series, which follows Aaron as he, along with the mages, prepare for war. But when family secrets are revealed, Aaron finds himself torn between doing what his parents ask of him and what the mages expect from him.

Review by: hphilgreen on Feb. 27, 2015 :
Spoilers ahead:

After waiting a year for this book to come out, I was worried that my excitement had risen my expectations to a point that they would never be reached. This book exceeded them. It was well-written and wonderfully paced, never leaving me feeling feeling rushed or bored. Seeing Rose and Aaron's reactions to Kyran's betrayal, as well as Aaron attempting to cope with Kyran's identity left me feeling their pain and confusion. I especially felt bad for Aaron, who by the end of the book, still doesn't know what he should believe to be true and can't stop trying to protect the person everyone is convinced is the enemy. Add into the mix the legacy that was forced onto him and the personal battle looming over the horizon, and I worry how much of him will be left by the end of war. Then there's Kyran, who is being used just as much as Aaron and Skylar were, and yet I'm not sure he realizes it. As much as Hadrian cares about him, he's keeping important information from him and I worry about how Kyran will react when he, along with us, learn the truth. Plus, he continues to get blamed for what others do simply because he is ignorant of what's happening, such as when the Salavador Gate fell. We also learned of another important enemy who I think will become important in the next books, a strange power called the Influence which I don't think we've heard the last of, and a mysterious cloaked figure whose identity I have a theory about. This book was everything that I wanted it to be and more, and I don't know how i will wait another year for the next one.
