Well written, got hooked so much by the story that i was really disappointed by the time i got to the last page. So much drama is crammed into this one book, such heartbreak, making for a somewhat interesting read. Lives up to its title

A very intriguing start to this series. I like the two female lead characters although Pax acts rather childish sometimes and I would like a bit more background on her and Thorn first hooking up, that could be interesting. Will be getting the rest of the series for sure!

I am marking this book as read and loved!! By loved I really mean looOOOooooved!

Childhood best friends Pax Burnson (tom boy, tough girl, granddaughter of the fire deva) and Amara Kalgren (deva descendant who was shopping more than practicing her magic)are both left heartbroken and wanting revenge. Revenge! Pax has been dating Amara's sucessful brother Thornton Kalgren while Amara has been dating Pax's not so successful Uncle Ashton Burnson. (I just love the names) Are you still with me? The book definitely has a soap opera feel to it. The girls come up with a brilliant plan to make the boys suffer the way they have.

I love the relationships between the characters. I felt connected to all of them. I was cheering them on and getting mad and frustrated. It was a roller coaster of emotion. The way Pax and Amara talk remind me so much of how my best friend and I would talk if we were demi godessess seeking out revenge by means of ancient magic! Oh and we would if we could! With several twists and turns the girls learn of many secrets. Secrets from their boyfriends and from their families, they have a few of their own also.

By practicing ancient magics they attract the attention of Suja, Queen of the Asura, who has been having marital problems for centuries with Sakra, Lord of the devas. Bitter and power hungry she's been up to no good. *note to author... I would love to hear their story too!

Best friends, revenge, magic, battles, love, betrayal, secrets, seriously hot guys, humor, this has it all! It's soap opera, comic book and mythology all rolled into one.

There's no way I could possibly do this novel justice. Fire is an accurate element to be associated with this book. The girls (mostly Pax) have gone through so much that they have do deal with the raw emotion of it all and they can be angry, vengeful, and seductive. The action is quite consistent; and like Drowning Mermaids there's a lot of secrets sure to cause drama down the road.

As with her other novels, the author is sublime at articulating relate-able feelings underneath all of the energy, telekinesis, spells, all of that. The author does not hold back the betrayal fury -- and I love that! Too often reactions to betrayal are helplessness, it's nice to have some anger. I really enjoyed the relate-ability of the relationships. You have the relationship between the girls, the relationship between the guys, and the familial (friends) relationship between them all that each have their own redeeming and not-so redeeming qualities that underlay every action.

Whenever the girls merge, you're on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what they're going to do in this thirty minutes and if they will get out of there in time! As always, the author paints out vivid scenes that immerse you for hours.
