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.
