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

Being the mother of two girls, Urban was brilliant in the way she depicted high school life--the studs, the nerds, the bullies who more often than not made you feel yucky. In Erin, she contrived a character that was different than normal girls which kept you turning the page until you knew just exactly why. Plus she wove in "destiny" and "soulmates" and characters you didn't know which side of good and bad they fell on. There was mystery, suspense, and a fantasy world that I absolutely adored. I look forward to the next.

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.

This is an interesting YA fantasy romance. I really enjoyed it.

I bought a Kindle copy of this book in 2013. Unfortunately, due to my large reading list, I haven't had a chance to get to it. I hadn't realised that it was available on audible until recently. I downloaded the book and listened to it as soon as I could.

The audio book is narrated by Anna Parker-Naples. I thought she did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life. Her young voice brought a liveliness to the story. Unfortunately, she seemed to pause or take a breath in the middle of the sentence, or rush through others. I don't know if this is an error on her part, or a post production/editing one. However, this did make me feel a little disappointed that the flow was slightly disrupted.

Erin Tait is a teen with an unusual birthmark on her face. I found her to be a typical teen, full of angst and beset with loneliness from being "different". When she crosses paths with Sean Jackson and is bullied by Jessica Watson, she struggles with her emotions.

This is an interesting tale of a teen who has struggled with being different from birth. I think a lot of teens could relate to this tale. Nevertheless, I found Erin's attitude a little tiresome and I wanted to tell her to take her pity party somewhere else. Yes, being lonely and bullied can bring a person down and make them feel self-pity or self-loathing (been there, done that), Erin's attitude to others also made it easy for her to be victimised. I loved that Sean spoke to her and brought her out of her shell. Sean also has a secret, though this doesn't get revealed until later in the story. I liked meeting Kasey-Rae, Erin's younger sister. She has set herself up as her older sister's champion.

First-person narratives tend to give me trouble, especially when I don't identify with the main character. It would be easier for me, a middle-aged male, to read about a teen female's first love in the third person, so I'll try to separate that from my overall opinions of this book.

Additionally, there were numerous editing oversights. None of them are "show stopping", but if this is your bugaboo, I would recommend waiting until the author has released the updated version.

Now, caveats in place, let's get to the review.

There is a lot to like about the first installment in this YA series. The characters are clearly defined in their roles and well described to make visualization easy in the mind's eye. The story moves along at a comfortable pace, despite huge amounts of introductory information being cast at the main character (and thus, you, the reader).

Since I prefer not to discuss actual events within a book (that pleasure should be reserved for the reader), in general terms, the book follows a high school teen through a move into a new home, new school and new terror, in the form of an inexplicably vicious and hateful girl.

Even having spent all her life facing disregard for a dramatically prominent facial birthmark, Erin has never faced such innate hatred before. As horrible as that feels, she has a counterbalancing miracle in the presence of an irresistibly attractive boy. The relationship between the hateful girl and the mesmerizing boy is muddled at first and surprising by story's end.

As this ordinary tale runs its course, the more extraordinary discovery of what makes Erin so different becomes apparent...and it's not just her face.

Bought all of these books after Christmas after receiving an amazon gift card for my kindle. I have to say i was not let down at all. I have added a new favorite author to my list with the amazing stories of Lavinia Urban. I honestly could not put this book down and read all of the books in less then a week because i found that i wanted to know more and more. Great read, great story line and great characters.

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.
