Erin Tait is a 15 year old girl, who thinks of herself as a freak. She's moves to her parents’ home town of Galladale, where all is not what it seems On her first day at school, she meets Sean Jackson. Instantly she is besotted with him. But this results in her being targeted by a girl called Jessica Watson. She has one warning. Stay away from Sean! But he is everywhere she goes, even in her dreams. Which are soon taken over by Jessica's threats and actions against Erin are taken in school. Erin is scared, lonely and confused. Who can she turn to? Will Jessica stop this hate campaign? and can Erin control the fire within?


I went into this book completely blind.  All I knew about this novel was that it has a pretty cover and obviously has something to do with the beginning of a story involving a fire goddess.  Although the story did take a while to “heat up” (hah!  Puns.), I still found myself intrigued by the story from the start.  The author did a great job creating Erin as a sweet and kindhearted girl that’s just misunderstood due to her birthmark.  Honestly, it seemed that all of the characters (except Jessica, of course) were well rounded and genuine. 

When I first started reading, I did have a few problems.  It’s no secret that the grammar in this book is not up to snuff.  I believe I read somewhere that this was being worked on, but at least at the point where I was reading this book, it had not yet been corrected.  The grammatical issues caused some disturbance at first, but it wasn’t at a level where I couldn’t complete the story.  In fact, once I really got into the story, I stopped noticing the grammatical errors as much as I had in the beginning.

This is a really sweet book and I can’t wait to continue the series.  Try to look past the errors (until they’re corrected) and you’ll find yourself enveloped in a really fun series.
