    1. Rarely do I read a paranormal romance I don't like but when I'm so hooked I don't even want to stop to eat or interact with the world, that's when I know I've found an AMAZING book. From page one I was drawn in deep into the world the author created, unable to tear my eyes away. It's so well-written, so engrossing, so interesting that I didn't want to put my kindle down.This is my second read from this series and I have to say I LOVE the author's take on vampires. The're ruthless, bloodthirsty, [...]


    2. I read book one in this series and while that one is really a stand alone, this book really sets the scene for the rest of the series. We get deeper into witchcraft and the supernatural creatures like Sebastian. We learn more about Gwen's gifts and she becomes coveted by some pretty dark creatures. The murder mystery aspect of the first book is still there in this one, but you also have vampire and witch politics.I do have to admit, during certain scenes, seeings what new gifts Gwen was showing, [...]


    3. “Don’t alter human and vampire relations” is good advice, but Gwen, the witch, already has a magical bond with a vampire! Troubles follow fast, exciting and captivating, as if Lucretia Stanhope has grasped the thread of this series and shaken it. Book one was interesting: this one is a five-star winner.


    4. More Supernatural Shenanigans.“I should be Gwen the good witch by day and Gwen the henchwoman of the vampires by night?”Gwen having recently discovered her heritage as a witch (see Blessedly Bound the first in this series and a very good read), is plunged into the supernatural world by being sent as an emissary to the vampire Lord Dimitry. In fact she is not there in that role alone, her purpose is to uncover the mysterious disappearance of her predecessor Paulette. but she must first submit [...]


    5. The overall impression of this book is it lacks sophistication, but that is not too much of a problem if you are targeting a YA audience. More concerning is the lack of depth and development. The bones of the story are there and I understand what the writer is trying to do, but I feel it falls short.The story is told in the 3rd person mainly from Gwen’s perspective. We discover she is a witch with valuable magical powers. Dmitry is sinister, demanding and controlling and as a villain he has a [...]


    6. In the array of realms that exist, earth resides in a tenuous position, one that could be easily overthrown by potent hostile powers. The balance is governed by a council of beings from various realm origins, while power and politics come to the forefront. Among the proponents of the earth is a coven of witches whose magic can command the elements. So it is that a relatively young and unknown witch arrives as an envoy to the council. Though assigned to investigate a missing person, she quickly b [...]


    7. Gripping This is not my usual genre, but I found the story captivating. I have not read the first book in the series and was delighted to find that it did not keep me from enjoying the second in the series. Although this fascinating story on relationships between otherworldly creatures and humans has piqued my interest on what I may have missed in book one. The main character, Gwen is filled with a vast amount of endearing qualities. She is feisty, temperamental, independent, courageous, and war [...]


    8. Burning Captivation is the extraordinary fantasy tale in which Gwen, a young witch is to be the future bride of vampire master, Dmitry. The story is told from two main perspectives, that of Gwen, and Dmitry himself. Moving away from the belief that vampires are unfeeling creatures, unable to feel the true depth of compassion, Dmitry’s character (although an adept at hiding his emotions from Gwen) practically oozes it. From the beginning, I could see how much he cared for Gwen in his own way, h [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this well-written story about the realms of vampires and witches.Gwen, an elemental witch, is tasked with solving the disappearance of another witch but is thrust into far more.I liked the world-building, which gave the story depth and reality. The characters were intriguing, though some more complex than others. Percy is particularly interesting.Themes such as power, control, arrogance, war, cruelty, betrayal and romance, and a great writing style, make for a compelling read.


    10. 4.5*I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Amazing cover pic again !! So much meaning behind it All elements hidden in one pic !!That being said here is my review.Plot : 5Main Characters : 4Side Characters : 4Feel/Emotions : 4Twists : 4Writing Style: 5My thoughts : Woah !! So much better than the first book in the series. So, the plot is good, vampire war !! With Gwen learning more and more about her power, which is really nice to read. We need to ha [...]


    11. Yuuuuup, two thumbs up!! Typically with a series, the 2nd can be a let down from the firstNOT IN THIS CASE it's just as good, probably better (mmm, maybe because there is less romance lol). A well-written, enjoyable tale that could be read as a standalone but I would advise to read the first to understand the connection Gwen has with Sebastian. Gwen is on another quest for the truth, but runs into a royal vampire with a bite that is defo worse than his bark ;-) This series has piqued my interest [...]


    12. Burning Captivation starts out promisingly enough, with elemental witch Gwen Hensley tasked with solving the disappearance of another witch while undercover as an envoy to the realm’s vampires. The author’s take on magic breaks away from some of the common tropes of pop-culture witchcraft, and aside from Gwen’s steadfast aversion to killing anything, I found the magical element refreshingly believable.Written in close third person, Burning Captivation is clearly a sequel meant to be read s [...]


    13. An Intense Paranormal ThrillerFrom the first pages of Burning Captivation, we are introduced into the dark world of vampires. Sebastian’s easygoing nature is not seen in this cutthroat underworld Gwen has found herself immersed in. Gwen seems to be a magnet for uncomfortable situations as she investigates a missing person case, rather than a murder like we saw in the first book in this series. The introduction of the witches’ and vampires’ worlds are intriguing, getting glimpses of how the [...]


    14. The vampires don't sparkle. Normally, I'd say that's a good thing. In this casesparkling probably would have been preferable to everything else. As a reviewer, I kind of always cringe when I'm asked to review a book that's a continuation of a series. I feel like I can't really be fair in questioning certain things, when I have no idea whether they're explained in the previous book. And this book is no exception. It's easy enough to jump into the story here without knowing what happened before, a [...]


    15. Vampire Scenes That Give Anne Rice A Run For Her MoneyBook Two of the Elemental Witch Trials series, “Burning Captivation” is an aptly titled novel packed with scorching vampire intensity thanks to the rich descriptive writing rippling through each tense and alarming encounter.Introduced to the chillingly cold Dmitry by Nikolay at the opening of the novel, our protagonist Gwen Hensley, an elemental witch and a survivor intent on discovering the fate of fellow witch Paulette, has become an en [...]


    16. Burning Captivation is a story about Gwen, a very unique witch who because of the sins of her family has been forced to be the mistress of a very powerful vampire of the royal class. He is called Dmitry and is fascinated with her because she has power like no other witch he has ever known. In this world there are several realms with vampires and abominations called the "turned," witches and familiars, healers and day walkers. Gwen uses her magical skills to investigate what happened to a witch n [...]


    17. An entertaining fun read. The main character, Gwen, sets out to investigate the disappearance of Paulette, a witch like herself. There are several realms and tribes with vampires, witches, ‘turned’ who are slaves, familiars, healers, seers, and daywalkers.The book opens strong with Gwen facing Dmitry, and immediately we side with her. He’s a master vampire and powerful. Soon, Gwen discovers a new gift. By calling out her power, it radiates out of her like a sun and burns those around her. [...]


    18. With Burning Captivation, Elemental Witch Trials Novel 2, Lucretia Stanhope dares her readers to enter the world of witches and vampires, a world that is at once terrifying but also captivating and touching at times. Gwen is a witch with powers beyond her understanding, even beyond the understanding of the Vampire Royalty she's given to - Dmitry. Throughout the story we follow Gwen as she's handed off to a series of other vampire protectors, servants to Dmitry who are charged with protecting his [...]


    19. A murdered witch, hostile vampires, and an elemental witch named Gwen who is far more powerful than anyone, including herself, realizes. There is lots of intrigue and mystery, none of it predictable. The characterization was marvelous. The characters were complex and believable, the relationships and dialogue realistic. Mt biggest praise, though, is for the vampires. I don't particularly like vampires. There was a time when I did, but they got so popular and the literary world so glutted with th [...]


    20. A sequel equally as enchanting as the first book in the series. The sequel to Blessedly Bound (which I have also read and reviewed) sees Gwen's life take a turn in a direction that neither she nor the reader of the first book in the series expected. A mystery that Gwen must solve becomes increasingly complicated by developments in her own life that spiral beyond her control. Still discovering the extent of her own power and what it means for her life, she is thrust into a world plagued by intrig [...]


    21. This is the second book in the serie about Gwen, an elementary witch, a heroine with a big heart. In this book she meet a lot of challenge and betray. Gwen seems to be drawn to people that will betrey her when she's least expect it. But Gwen is hard-nosed and have a lot of courage so she remains on her feet.I've really tried to see/feel what makes this books SO good, I haven't fall for a witch this hard for a long time. The only thing I came up with is that the books captures me as Harry Potter [...]


    22. “Burning Captivation,” book two in the Elemental Witch Trials series, was just as good as the first one; only, this time, the story takes place in a magical realm and not a quiet, peaceful town, and Gwen’s life is even in more danger now. Having been sent to the magical realm to investigate the disappearance of another witch, Gwen soon finds herself in the thick of it, trapped in a world where no one can be trusted, and from which there is seemingly no escape. On top of it, when the master [...]


    23. Reading about Gwen's struggles and investigation into a missing witch in this book definitely kept my attention. I was fascinated by the various worlds, and also by the monsters and witches and the politics between them. It was creepy at times and I was definitely scared for Gwen. If I could have one thing on my wish list from this series going forward it would be more visual descriptions of the world itself. I wanted the author to paint pictures in my mind of all these wonderful places, to see [...]


    24. My review.Burning Captivation, written by Lucretia StanhopeGwen the brave. Trying to do the right thing at the same time, trying to survive. The love for Sebastian, keeps her going while solving the mystery of a missing person. Can she find out what really happened or will she be betrayed and find herself missing or dead.In a world of paranormal, Gwen must find the strength to keep moving before she becomes a plaything in the vampire world, especially when Dmitry marks her as his mistress the su [...]


    25. Burning Captivation is a well-written, riveting book that draws the reader in and captivates them from beginning to end. This novel is the second in a series of paranormal fantasy books about Gwen, an elemental witch, who learns to use her growing powers to combat others, while using her intelligence to solve mysteries. Stanhope creates a wonderfully imaginative world with fascinating healers created from components of the earth, enchanting familiars, and vampires who are both good and evil. Luc [...]


    26. This is a richly woven world that the author introduces. The mix of supernatural races living side by side, each with their own customs and secrets. Gwen navigates this strange realm somewhat reluctantly as she tries to find a missing witch. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but the author does a good job with their individual characterizations. I love how the world became more intricate as the story developed and the darkness of the tale. I also loved that Gwen wasn't your typical [...]


    27. Book 2 plunged right into the heart of the story. Now Gwen faces danger from all sides with no help from Sebastian and Lewis. But Gwen’s instincts led her to make the right decisions throughout thus saving further bloodshed and loss. Lots of vampires in book 2 and well, not the nice ones likes Sebastian. Our heroine once again prevail but at a great price. Will our heroine ever find peace and love with Sebastian? With great power comes great responsibility and our heroine is forced to choose t [...]


    28. This book is not for the faint of heart. It takes you into the depths of the cold, harsh world of vampires. A world filled with hate, anger, power, manipulation, and punishment for those who even consider to disobey vampires. It has great character descriptions, and the plot is dark, going beyond the search for a missing witch. If you want to get a "true" sense of the nature of vampires, you'll want to read this book.


    29. Intense and Fascinating. As the second book in the series, you will be blown away by this amazing story. The beauty in this second book is how we go deeper into the psyche of the characters and how it also gets more intense. Gwen faces danger and I admired her instinct and how she reacted to what was thrown at her. Dark creatures are getting near and it makes this book a page turner.


    30. I'll admit, I read this book out of order. And guess what? It didn't matter! The author did an excellent job of pulling me into a magical world filled with magical beings.Burning Captivation really is captivating and worth the read. Gwen is an excellent main character with extraordinary elemental witch powers.Excellent job creating a unique story that will not disappoint.
