Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-When Ashline Wilde, 16, reincarnation of the volcano goddess Pele, learns that her younger sister has been abducted by a dangerous Miami-based cult, she heads to Florida to rescue her. Ash discovers that the Four Seasons are power-hungry deities, and that the group's leader hopes to use the child's powers to open a portal into the netherworld where their older sister is trapped. To complicate matters, Aztec god Wes and former flame, the trickster Colt, are vying for Ash's affection. Each one has his own agenda. When buried memories from her past incarnations resurface, Ash learns of her volatile history with both boys-and with her sisters. She must reconcile her past if she's to have a future. This thrilling follow-up to Wildefire (S & S, 2011) reads like the script for an action movie. Despite the mythological angle, however, the haphazard mishmash of deities makes the story feel more X-Men than Clash of the Titans. Violence; underage drinking; and steamy sexual innuendo between characters make this title better suited to older teens. Exciting plot twists, interesting characters, and snappy dialogue will keep them hooked, and a cliff-hanger ending will leave them burning for the final installment.-Alissa J.

Review

Praise for Karsten Knight's WILDEFIRE

"In an era when the young adult paranormal and urban fantasy field isblessed with an abundance of great stories and storytellers, WILDEFIREis an exceptional standout." -San Diego Union-Tribune

"Knight has created a novel quite different from the coming-of-age/paranormal-teenreads that have glutted the market recently. Ash is a wry andinteresting protagonist and the romance and gritty, violent actionscenes are compelling." -School Library Journal

"Knight's debutnovel is an edgy twist on the magical boarding school theme. It's a fun, well-written, and engaging read with a last-sentencetwist."-Publisher's Weekly

"There's introspection here as well as sizzling sexuality, but the novel's strong narrative thrust relies onaction, from violent brawls and accidents to encounters with terrifying, supernatural creatures in the redwood forest. A promising first novel." -Booklist

"Knight has written a riveting, original multicultural fantasy. Teens will quickly devour this story and will be relieved toknow a sequel is on its way." -VOYA

Praise for EMBERS & ECHOES

"Exciting plot twists, interesting characters, and snappy dialogue willkeep them hooked, and a cliff-hanger ending will leave them burning forthe final installment." -School Library Journal

"Readers will be fully drawn into the fast-paced, brutally explosiveaction that leaves a trail of gruesome deaths in its wake. Thecliff-hanger ending will leave readers wanting more. The mythologyaspects combined with great romance elements make this series a goodchoice for girls who enjoyed, but have outgrown, Rick Riordan's series." -VOYA

Ashline Wilde wanted nothing more than to leave Blackwood Academy behind and to escape the memories of everything that happened that May. But as she learned when she arrived at Blackwood, you can't always run from your past.

It will follow you. And ignoring it can have devastating consequences. Consequences she's still reeling from.

But when her end of year plans take a drastic turn, she decides to face what she'd been trying to avoid and heads to Miami to track down the sister she knows only from visions. Her six-year-old sister Rose.

With barely any information to go on, she only knows that she has to try. Because her latest visions reveal that Rose could be in even more danger than she was before. And returning to Scarsdale without her is not a future Ash is willing to accept.

Being a volcano goddess may have its perks, a fiery temper not always being one of them, but it also means that things can turn deadly. Fast.

So when the search for her sister lands her in the path of a group of gods and goddess that have a bloodthirsty agenda, Ash must decide whether saving her sister is enough or whether she will have to become a hero for all of humanity.

***

Embers & Echoes is the dynamic, riveting, wildly entertaining and action-packed follow-up to Karsten Knight's powerhouse debut novel Wildefire. This sequel, that brings together gods and goddesses from around the globe, not only packs a punch, but has an easy flow that will make the pages fly.

The author doesn't just continue this incredibly unique story. He broadens the setting, lengthens the timeline, enlarges the cast of characters and expands the world.

"The looks that you and Wes have been exchanging the last twenty-four hours have been so hot that I'm surprised you don't need sunglasses to keep from getting pregnant." -- Aurora

"You make a decision whether you want to spend your life staring at dark horizons... or whether you want to spend it catching every sunrise that you can." -- Wes

Leaving her last relationship literally melted in the ground and swearing off future entanglements with supernatural boys, Ash has to make her plans for summer vacation. But, she doesn't get any time to be the usual carefree high school student. With a lead on where to find her kidnapped little sister and how to rescue her older sister from Hell, there's no rest for this reincarnated Polynesian volcano goddess.

"MIA" is her destination -- The airport code for Miami is appreciated by Ash's sense of humor. There, she will become embroiled with more gods and goddesses. Some will become her friends. Some will become her enemies. Some she never wanted to see again.

Internally, Ash must face that her sisters might not want to be found. Her little sister never knew her, and Ash was the one who put her older sister in Hell. From so many angles, still grieving over friends lost in the gods' battles at Blackwood Academy in the first Wildfire novel and watching horrors exploding around her, Ash wonders if she is on the right course.

And whose team are the other gods playing for? Colt gives Ash back some of the memories that all gods have taken from them from lifetime-to-lifetime. But what do they mean, and will they show her what she needs to know in time?

With all that, Ash still has to remember to call home.

This is going to be a very brief review because 1) I don't want to spoil the book and 2) There is way too much to put in the review to list it all out here. So, let me start off by saying that this was a beautiful sequel to continue a beautiful first novel in the series.

The sequel continued exactly where the first book left off. We learn a crucial part of the 'prophecy' ( if you can call the scroll that Jack gave the gods a prophecy) and a character gets seriously heart broken. On the up side, we get to meet two really great new characters (who are also Gods) and see the unraveling of a potential new relationship... one I was sitting at the edge of my seat to read any piece of information the author gave me. We only briefly get to meet our old characters from the first book, Wildefire and we get to know a little bit more about Ash's little sister, Rose. Lastly, we get a new set of villians with this book, and I DO say villians because, afterall, true villains from myths and fairytales always have super powers. You guessed it guys, they are gods as well! Well, all except for one ;)

If this hasn't convinced you to read the sequel to Wildefire then let me give you my assurances. This book was just as good as the first, if not better. We get to experience Ash using and mastering her powers and see a whole new range of different relationships emerge, be they friendship, hatred, to romance. We get to learn so much more depth within Ash, and thanks to a CERTAIN character, we get to learn alot more about Ash's past lives. This was a magnificent book and I praise Karsten Knight once more on a job very well done. 10/10 for sure.
