Book Review Wildefire Review Part 2

I loved the characters. Like I said previously, I wasn’t a huge fan of Ash in the beginning, but there was a turning point (not sure exactly what part it was) where I really began connecting with her and the rest of the characters. The storyline was fresh and exciting and it had my heart racing at times, wondering what would happen next. And the ending…well let’s just say it was pretty amazing! The Bad – The only other negative I can think of besides my trouble connecting with certain characters at first, was how slowly the story progressed after Ash transferred to the private school. I know the author had to develop the characters and build up the storyline, but up until they find out that they’re gods/goddesses I was having trouble finding the desire to continue reading. Luckily that part wasn’t very long at all and after I got past it I fell in love! The Ugly – I don’t have anything horrible to say about this book, it turned out to be a great read.

I would definitely say sizzle! Ash ends up meeting Colt, a local park ranger, one night when she sneaks off to a bar with her friends. Ash is a little resistant at first, mostly because she thinks that Raja

I’d say this book is pretty unique. I don’t know about the rest of you, but most of the main characters in the books I read are white. It was nice to see some cultural/racial diversity; in this case, the main character Ash is Polynesian. There are quite a few books out right now dealing with mythology and gods/goddesses, but I think this book took it in a different direction than the others and it felt fresh and new.

Despite my initial problems with this book, I ended up falling in love with it. This is a perfect example of why I usually read at least half of a book before deciding if I want to stop or not; the first several chapters did not win me over at all and I thought I was going to have to give it only 3 stars, if that. Then when the story started to pick up (and it did in a BIG way), I knew that this was a book that was seriously going to redeem itself. It certainly did, beyond my expectations. This is definitely a book you’re going to want to read this year!
