Book Description

Erin Tait is a 15 year old girl, born with a birthmark covering the left side of her face.
She moves to her parent’s home town of Galladale, where all is not what it seems.
From day one, Erin is bullied by Jessica Watson, for looking at Sean Jackson.
Why is she trying to keep Erin away? It’s hard when Sean goes out of his way to talk to Erin, causing the bullying to get worse.
Erin is lonely and scared; she doesn’t know what to do. Can she control the fire inside?

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is the re-edited version and I also decided to make the size smaller to align with the other books in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars great start to a series October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Erin has always been a loner with no friends. She bars a mark on her face and people shun her. Her family is moving to Galladale and she hopes maybe it will be different. But one run in with Jessica has her withdraw in fear until Sean sees her for herself and gives her the chance no one else ever has. This book has a sequel that will be coming out soon to explain more of the purpose of Erin's life. I believe Ms. Urban has started us on a story that we will want to keep reading to discover more about the characters fate they will hold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start, want more August 29, 2013
By Bonnie
Format:Kindle Edition
Okay, yes. As others have already stated, there ARE significant editing errors in this book, enough for it to have made me stumble several times. I'm pretty easy-going about typos/editing oopsies...they happen and I've seen at least two in every ebook I've ever read. But yeah, there are several of the same sorts of errors over and over in Erin, The Fire Goddess, and I will honestly say it DID trip me up. Normally it doesn't, sometimes it does. It did.

So...that's why the four star.

On the upside, the story is clever and catchy and if the author cleans up 90% of those errors, I'd give it a five star. Erin is easy to feel compassion for. While most people have never been cursed with a birthmark that covers half their face, many have been "the weird new kid at school" - so we can relate. Erin is not supermodel gorgeous (yup, I relate) not athletic (yeah, I relate there too), she is not popular (unlike her seemingly perfect sister), and she is inexplicably loathed and maliciously attacked by one of her classmates. Poor Erin. Seriously, I felt bad for her. Her parents are kindly and her perfect sister is when Erin is home, the world is good. She eats pizza, watches movies, and hangs out. It's just the outside world she's not suited to, and it's all because of that birthmark. It really can be a cruel world when you look different, and this story reminds us of that.

But Erin is tough and keeps on keeping on (yay! Erin!). She discovers secrets about herself - some of them good, and some dangerous. She owns up to each of them. She also discovers love - ha! talk about danger. Sean is a good guy and he balances her well. Much like how good relationships work in the real world.

The characters are likable, the plot believable, the dialogue realistic, and the action well-conceived. This is a good book and I'll gladly read the next in the series.

I recommend it to YA-up, especially for those who like romance and paranormal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book June 12, 2013
It had it's own unique take on the paranormal genre. It wasn't written as American, so at times a little hard to understand, but was very refreshing. In all honesty, it could use another read through/edit. But it doesn't really take away from the story. I tend to be a grammar Nazi or so I've been told. I love the Yin & Yang of the couples. The story is detailed and is very interesting to read. I will definitely be getting the next book to find out what happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely read June 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As the marred heroine is pushed to her breaking point, it leads to a tale of love and acceptance of herself and others. The character depth and development was thoughtfully written in this intriguing tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall in love with the characters May 14, 2014
By Echo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give this book 5 stars based on the originality of the story. It is at times heartbreaking and at times all consuming happiness.
I just fell in love with the main character, Erin. She is a strong young woman who is not only teased for being different, but faces violent bullying. Though most would crumble in the face of such adversity, she stays strong and ultimately finds her way to her destiny.

I do not like to leave specifics because I hate to spoil anything for anyone. But this is a great book and should be added to your TBR list! If you haven't given Lavinia Urban a try, I suggest starting here, TODAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great original Paranormal YA! Outstanding! March 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
*A Copy of this Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review*

What a clever story! I think Lavinia, who I let wait on this review too long, has done an outstanding job giving us a fresh YA book, with a good message, and interesting characters. The first draft does have some editing errors, but the author reedited the book and it's much smoother read, and really lets the reader stay completely engrossed in the story without being pulled out by editing issues. Erin is a lovely character, she's strong, and resilient, and she really trying to keep her head up despite everything. I love seeing that in YA because we really need as many strong women as we can get to combat the Bella's of the world. The action in this book was good, and it didn't seem forced, it seems to flow well, and working in a YA paranormal book. I was interested, and on the edge of my seat for a lot of the book, and have to applaud that, because usually YA books to not keep me on edge, as so many tend to be overly predictable, and just have the same underlying story, but this book kept me interested with strong story, great action, and a little bit of romance. Sean is such a teenage heartthrob and I thought the bond between Kaseyrea and Erin was beautifully done. I'd highly suggest this book to readers of YA and even NA, who have a love of paranormal and action with some romance. It's the beginning of a series, and I can definitely say it made me interested to read the rest of her books!
