Review: Wildefire by Karsten Knight

From Goodreads: Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

First I would like to start with a few nonsensical words: zOMG, bang, pow, woohoo, and finally yay.

Wildefire is gripping, action filled and a great book for girls and boys alike. While the boys will cling to the action bits that keep you on-the-edge-of-your-seat, the girls will love the inner struggle that Ash is dealing with and all of the drama.

The book has all of my favorite things, boarding schools, gods, and smores. The writing is on the whole great and the plot unfolds at a fantastic pace. While the setting is fantastical the book has a contemporary feel that I completely adored.

Ash and Eve’s story is tragic at best, of course all of the godlings had their share of bad luck before they were brought together. In this novel there is depth, death, and mayhem. Honestly it’s the perfect beach read for those who are adventurous enough to dive into the ocean where there are living things ready to bite/eat/claw/attach to you.

The release date is July 26th so mark it on your calendars adventure seekers and get ready for a wild fiery ride.
