(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Having entered the giveaways to win a copy of both this book and its sequel, I was really happy when they were both offered on one of the groups I’m a member of.
I was a bit confused at first by the characters who seemed completely different to the ones in the blurb, but once I got past that, I felt that the first part worked really well as a kind of introduction to the story.
The plot of this story was a really intriguing one and as I read the book, it definitely lived up to my expectations.
I did like Hunter. I felt she came across as a realistic person and her relationship with Eli came across as very easy and natural, rather than forced and superficial.
I had some very mixed feelings about Joshua. I felt sympathetic towards him at times, but absolutely hated him at others.
One of the things that wasn’t really explained to my satisfaction was why people at her school had such a problem with Hunter. That was something I kind of struggled to understand.
Hunter’s abilities were described really well and I found it interesting that the fire had its own voice. I would have liked to see more of the origin of the rock and the powers.
I liked some of the supporting characters and really disliked others. Jack was one of those I would have liked to see more of.
On the whole, I found this book really well-written and entertaining to read. I recommend giving it a try and I’m going to be reading the sequel in the next few days.
