Book Description

*** RE-EDITED VERSION ***
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 too...so 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story! July 14, 2013
By Cana
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were funny and developed well by Lavinia. The story itself was unique and interesting.
My only beef with this book was the writing style. There were a few editing issues which in itself didn't detract from the book at all ( missing words, wrong words) could be worked out quite easily. However, the writing style itself seemed a little bit too basic for me, I guess it is a young adult novel but it read like it was written by a young adult ( and I have issues with how young people talk these days lol)but this is my gripe and not everyone's.. But again, it didn't spoil the read and I did love reading the books. The characters were fab and well developed, and despite my gripes I couldn't put the book down, in fact I read all 3 in just under 2 days. It is a shame the books are short, I prefer mine to be longer but they were definitely a good read and I would recommend reading them,

Freshly told, Erin the Fire Goddess is an engaging story, aimed for young adults. The author, Lavinia Urban, presents it in first-person narrative, which indicates a deep bond with the character. So it is no wonder that she chose to name the main character and her sister after her own two daughters. I think that the story comes from the deep--both memories from the past, and observation of how children behave and what they feel at present, both of which makes Erin's voice ring true and compelling. At times it is sad, at times playful.

The story brings back the agony of growing up, being afraid of falling short of expectations in the eyes of schoolmates, fending off bullies and school, and finding a way to overcome this agony. Perhaps the most difficult thing is the challenge to control the fire inside.

Four stars.

More About the Author

Lavinia originally grew up in Cheshire and now lives in a small village just outside of Edinburgh with her husband and two daughters.
Writing has always been something that Lavinia have loved since an early age but it wasn't until 2010 when the idea came to her to write Erin the Fire Goddess.
Lavinia chose to name the main character and her sister after her two daughters, who inspire Lavinia to write every day.
