Kira knows they're keeping secrets, but when she discovers Tristan's lust for blood and her own dormant mystical powers, Kira is forced to fight for her life and make the heartbreaking decision between the familiar comfort of friendship and the fiery passion of love.

From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis comes a paranormal romance perfect for fans of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Ignite is the first book in the Midnight Fire Series and it is approximately 65,000 words.

Editorial Reviews



"Best book I have ever read besides The Fault In Our Stars." -- Hope Cooper (Amazon Review)

"This book was awesome! I love the idea!...The story is fun, exciting and full of drama!" -- Jen Stewart of Jen's Bookshelf

"I was riveted throughout and was eager to see what would happen - there was drama, danger, action and romance that was wonderfully detailed and described." -- S. Condous "SC" of Obsession With Books

"YES ITS DIFFERENT AND I THROUGHLY ENJOYED IT!! I'm a vampire lover, and enjoy any tale that is certainly unlike any other and that grabs and piques my interest. Ignite certainly did this." -- K.M. Whittaker

"It's a unique and riveting tale that leaves you begging for more! (On that note - I am quite literally breathless in anticipation for Simmer to come out!)" -- Maria Maldo (Amazon Review)

"I walked into a sign while reading this book - I could not tear myself away until I finished it!" -- Uncle Jimmy (Amazon Review)

"It's been a while since I have read a really good YA vampire book. They have become so cliche that I often avoid them. Imagine my surprise when I picked up Ignite and fell in love with it by page 17." -- Kristin of Better Read Than Dead

"Likeable characters, I'm sure you will giggle with, frown at, and even curse, moments where you heart will be palpitating and a curve ball is thrown in." -- K.M. Whittaker

From the Inside Flap

IGNITE (Midnight Fire #1) EXCERPT --

"But soft what light through yonder window breaks. It is the east and Juliet is the sun. Arise fair sun and kill the envious moon, who is already sick and pale with grief that thou her maid art far more fair than she." 

Kira couldn't help but laugh at Tristan as he speedily grumbled out the lines without even an ounce of passion. "You know this is supposed to be a love scene, right?" 

He glanced at her with contempt while she tried to swallow her smile. 

"Oh, really? I hadn't noticed," he said, looking back down at the page. Tristan continued to read aloud in his monotone voice, totally ignoring her, which just prompted Kira to continue.

"Look, Tristan, there's no point hiding the fact that you like me, from me I mean. I flipped through your notebook again after I realized that you'd left it behind. I saw the drawings you made of me." 

Tristan paused, shifting his focus to Kira. She handed his small moleskin back to him, happy to at least have that out of the way. For some reason, she thought he was looking at her like she was an unruly child who wouldn't follow instructions. Where he got that from, she had no idea. But he continued with his speech, so she continued talking over him. 

"They were really great actually, pretty flattering," she said, smiling, hoping he would look at her again. But he didn't. "Anyway, I think we should talk about what happened, not here obviously, but somewhere we can meet in private." 

They both chose that moment to look around, and Kira saw they had the attention of Tristan's friends and Luke. Yeah, she thought, the classroom was definitely not the right place to have this conversation. And she kind of hoped talking would lead to other things like it had the last time...

Tristan finished reading his lines. "Hey Juliet, it's your turn," he said with a smirk. 

"Oh, right." Kira looked down at her book. "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art though Romeo..." She tried to copy his apathetic style of reading and was secretly overjoyed when he laughed at her. 

"I get it, I sounded like an idiot," he interrupted. But Kira just continued reading, giving him the same silent treatment he had given her. "Okay, here's the truth Kira. We can't talk here and we shouldn't even be talking, now or maybe ever."

"You told me that already." She stopped reading. 

"Yet, you seem to have trouble understanding it. English is your first language, right?" Kira's response was a prolonged eye roll.  With a sigh, Tristan continued, "Like I said before, we just can't ever be."

"I understand what you're saying, but I also know you don't mean it." She leaned in closer to prevent from being overheard.

"I do," he insisted, forcing the point. 

"Oh really," Kira mocked, trying to push him into admitting the truth. "It didn't seem that way when you kissed me."

"Kira, forget that ever happened. Okay?"

"Or what? You don't scare me."

"I should," Tristan said and shot Kira a lethal look. His eyes changed color to the lightest blue she could imagine. They held her captive, not in the romantic way, but as though she were a prisoner held paralyzed. The icy hue was cold and made her shiver like she had been dropped in an arctic pool. Slowly his pupils began to expand, overtaking his irises. 

Kira trembled, pulse racing as her body froze. But more frightening was she felt like Tristan knew his effect and didn't care. The fear of not being able to move was slowly surpassed by a swell of power that stirred within her. A feeling of warmth spread to her hands, burning away Tristan's hold. 

Kira broke free and looked at the floor. Her fingertips still tingled with whatever had coursed through her veins, the heat that allowed her to break his gaze. She leaned back against her chair, away from him, and touched her fingers to her cheek. Each one burned into her skin.

"What the hell was that?" She asked unsteadily, still not looking up. The heat emanating from her hand absorbed all of Kira's thoughts. 

"Me," Tristan confessed. The venom was gone from his voice.

Kira gazed at him again and caught the unbearably sad expression in his eyes before he looked away from her. 

Or me? She thought, feeling the warmth finally ebb.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Vampire Lovers December 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
It's been a while since I have read a really good YA vampire book. They have become so cliche that I often avoid them. Imagine my surprise when I picked up Ignite and fell in love with it by page 17. I emailed Kaitlyn that minute to tell her how much I was enjoying Ignite. At this point, I wasn't even really certain that the book was about vampires but I suspected as much. But hey...these vampires surfed. I loved Kaitlyn's lore surrounding her vampires. It was unique and well thought out.

Kira make a great heroine. She is faced with adversity and doesn't back down. She knows what she wants and she's going to get matter what anyone says. I loved that she didn't do the whole "which one do I want" thing. She loves Luke as a friend and respects his opinion but that is as far as it goes. Tristan is the one for her, the one who makes her all warm and gooey, the one she dreams about, the one who brings out the fire in her...literally.

I loved Tristan but I felt his character was underdeveloped. He was supposed to be the bad boy but I never got that feel from him. I kind of felt like he had no real internal struggle. He wanted Kira and he would make it happen. Easy peasy. Sexy - definitely, tortured - certainly, take home and have my way with - oh hell yeah. But things were just too easy for him.

Luke is great. He's the supportive best friend when he needed to be and the protective older brother at other times. I enjoyed his light-hearted interactions with his friends and fierce reactions to Tristan and his crew of misfits. Luke was completely believable in his role.

Kira and Luke are conduits. They are the only things that can harm vampires...ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic and irritating January 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Also appears on The Screaming Nitpicker.

Unable to afford staying at the boarding school she attended in New York, Kira is back home in South Carolina for high school. On her first day there, she meets and immediately becomes friends with Luke and develops a fascination for Tristan, one of the misfits Luke seems to have something against. As Kira and Tristan slowly grow closer, the secrets they keep come out in the open: what Tristan is, what Kira can do, and the threat each presents to the other. Will they be able to make it work or will their adversarial natures win out?

Most of the characters simply fell flat, but Kira was difficult to like and I never completely came around to her. What was there for me to like? Thieves who act entitled to what they stole are not fun to read about, nor do I care to read about characters who come off as terrible friends but seem like they're supposed to be seen as good friends. Everything is so convenient for her, almost to the point of becoming a deus ex machina, that it robs all obstacles in her way of conflict.

Even after finishing the novel and thinking it over, I lack an understanding of what drew Kira and Tristan together in the first place or what they see in each other. The grand, genuine connection they're supposed to have feels more like insta-love. One of the grand flaws of the novel is its lack of genuine connections between any of the characters. I didn't believe for a second Kira was truly friends with any of her "friends" and I felt the same way about her relationship with her family.

I'll cut to the chase: In regards to the writing, this is an insult, not a book. When I read a novel, I expect it to demonstrate a mastery of basic grammar, word usage, and punctuation in whatever language I'm reading it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vampires and the Girls Who Love Them December 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
What we have here is a different kind of love triangle. Kira comes to South Carolina to live with her family after years at a boarding school in New York. She has to fit in at a new school and make new friends in a place where she has only spent summers. She is quickly integrated into the group of other newcomers meeting Luke, Emma, Dave and Miles. They become friends but she is also fascinated by a group that her new friends call the Misfits. The Misfits seem equally fascinated by her and begin staring at her whenever they are around. She is especially fascinated with Tristan. According to her, he has that rebel without a cause, bad boy look going along with a killer bod, black hair, and icy blue eyes.

Her new friend Luke and Tristan are enemies but neither will explain why. After a few interesting events, including a near drowning while surfing and being saved by Tristan, Kira's crush deepens. She seems to keep running into Tristan although he does try to stay away from her. It isn't until she is attacked by the Misfits and exhibits strange powers that things start to come clear.

Kira is a conduit. Conduits are the only ones who can kill vampires which is what the Misfits are. But there are two kinds of conduits - Protectors and Punishers - and Kira is the forbidden child of a Punisher father and a Protector mother. Her parents were killed when she was little and she has been raised by her aunt and uncle not knowing they weren't her parents. Luke has been sent by the Protectors to guard and train her. They become good friends as he teaches her about conduits and she learns what she can do. Apparently being the child of both a Punisher and Protector has given Kira some unique powers too.
