Wildefire - A Review

Wildefire - Karsten Knight (publisher)


Every flame begins with a spark.

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

My Thoughts:

Wow! What a way to end a book! So now I just have to know who the heck Colt is anyhow.

Before this last section of the book I was pretty intrigued as to what might happen in the next book. Now, I just have to know!

What really interested me in this book was the mythology and I feel as if we only got an introduction to our characters and their background. I hope with the next one, we get a whole lot more information on them. I find I want to know this portion more than anything. How they came to be, how they connect, how it is they keep repeating the cycle and reincarnating back to rinse and repeat again.

If Mythology interests you, I'd say give this book a read. I think you'll like it.

Glad you liked this one! It wasn't my cup of tea, but I was still intrigued by the mythology. I think I'll be haunting reviews of the sequel to see where it goes...

I had a feeling about Colt ... I agree with you that we only got a taste of the background of the characters, and the mythology definitely kept me interested. It also helped that Ash was so kick-butt!
