I went into this book completely blind. All I knew about this novel was that it has a pretty cover and obviously has something to do with the beginning of a story involving a fire goddess. Although the story did take a while to “heat up” (hah! Puns.), I still found myself intrigued by the story from the start. The author did a great job creating Erin as a sweet and kindhearted girl that’s just misunderstood due to her birthmark. Honestly, it seemed that all of the characters (except Jessica, of course) were well rounded and genuine.
When I first started reading, I did have a few problems. It’s no secret that the grammar in this book is not up to snuff. I believe I read somewhere that this was being worked on, but at least at the point where I was reading this book, it had not yet been corrected. The grammatical issues caused some disturbance at first, but it wasn’t at a level where I couldn’t complete the story. In fact, once I really got into the story, I stopped noticing the grammatical errors as much as I had in the beginning.
This is a really sweet book and I can’t wait to continue the series. Try to look past the errors (until they’re corrected) and you’ll find yourself enveloped in a really fun series.
Note: I received this book free from the author in exchange for a review.
