All Sapphire wants to do on vacation is relax, sort out her confused heart, and wait for her cousin to be born. But the Asuras and magical beings of India have been waiting for the Jewel of Akasha and they don’t want to go home; they want power. To heal the benevolent, Sapphire can’t separate out the evil — all will have access to the energy of Akasha. And that will bring Cartazonon right to them.
Travel the world with the Children of Fire!
As a group home kid, Sara never expects to be part of a family, much less have a different name, meet a unicorn or wake up one day with magical powers. But that’s exactly what happens when she turns fifteen. After that, life gets a little more crazy and a lot more dangerous.
This box set includes Books 1 - 3 of the Children of Fire Series.
A tormented creature haunts the Suicide Forest calling the hopeless to their death. With innocent lives on the line Sapphire must trust herself to lead her family and friends through the dangerous beings of Japan. Burdened by the memories of her failures and hurt by her friends’ distrust Sapphire isn’t sure how she can make it another day.
Christmas lights and her sixteenth birthday brighten Sapphire’s days. Her London nights are warmed by the attentions of Ramsey, a kilt-wearing selkie. The Children of Fire's bond is weakened, allowing a new evil to grow around them. Now, Sapphire has to choose between her own happiness and her responsibilities as the Jewel of Akasha.
Children of Fire come into their Phoenix powers on their fifteenth birthday. For some the change is celebrated, but Kayin wakes to a nightmare. After being kicked out of his villiage in Zimbabwe. Saved by other Children of Fire, Kayin must learn to control his power and adjust to the chaos of New York City. But will he be able to cope with the aching desire to return to the home he loves?

Sara just wishes it didn't include a new name, unicorns, and catching on fire.
The Man in The Mirror
on Aug. 05, 2011
Man in the Mirror is a fun story! I really enjoyed Mari's fire and determination. Her sisters and brother-in-law are such great characters that I'm hoping Elaine will write their stories some days. As for Dylan- let's just say I'm going to start going to antique stores and staring in mirrors hoping to find him.
