"Erin the Fire Goddess: Betrayal" by Lavinia Urban is a nice follow up to the first book in the series.
Back at school, our heroine Erin has a slightly easier time than before. She is happily in love with Sean and is also making friends with some other kids with super powers. Far from a regular super hero again the focus is on the emotional development of the characters and their relationships and their coming of age. There are some mysteries to be solved though and life is not completely free of complications: Jealousy comes in the way of love and some secrets are to be revealed.
After a long build up the story takes some surprising turns at the end and leaves you breathless and amazed. Like its predecessor the book does a great job at portraying teenage angst and problems, the use of super powers is incorporated in a simple way and does not lead to revenge or comic strip quality but aides the entertainment value and the plot development in other ways.
Since some parts of the plot remain unresolved it will be interesting to see where the next instalment will take us.

I LOVED the second install of Erin the Fire Goddess series. It progressed nicely from the first book.
The story line was great - simple but thrilling. Erin is so to relate to that you can't help but feels how she feels. The extra characters really helped to develop the story and I'm interested to know where the story will go from here.
I like the good v evil theme and I hope they can help the characters that use their powers for evil to see differently.
It is a must read and I am about to start the 3rd one in a few minutes.
