In Finding Fire, Kenna believes she’s just an ordinary human being, until she opens up a letter left to her by her deceased grandmother. The letter reveals that Kenna is anything but ordinary. She’s not an only child, but she has four siblings. Born as quindruplets, they each possess an unique gift, an element which they can control. Her parents died in an accident, and her grandmother was only allowed to take care of one of them. Kenna’s brothers and sisters are spread across the globe, and if she wants to reunite her family, she’ll have to find them. She starts by searching for her oldest brother, Aiden, who controls the element fire. But finding Aiden isn’t as easy as Kenna hoped it would be, and there’s danger lurking in every corner.
Kenna starts off as a whiny, insecure girl who has the habit of talking to herself way too often. She spends most of the time in her own mind. I understand she took her Granny’s death harshly, but I kind of wanted her to be a bit braver, a bit more eager to take her destiny in her own hands. However, she undergoes a real character transformation as the story continues. By searching for Aiden and eventually meeting him, she becomes a stronger, more self-reliant and independent person.
I actually enjoyed the threat of the Restorers. The Restorers are people who’d like to destroy Kenna and her family. By searching for her brother, Kenna unwillingly stumbles upon these Restorers, and from then on, a wild goose chase begins, in which the Restorers chase Kenna and her brother and try to eliminate them. It adds a whole new dimension to the book, adding suspense and excitement.
I’m looking forward to reading the sequel to this book. While the start could’ve been better, it really picked up halfway through and ended up being an enjoyable read.
This starts off really slow, mainly because for the first few chapters Kenna is whining and crying and her Granny's death, being alone, not wanting to get out of bed, and talking to herself. I mean really? She's 25, and sounds more like 5. If you can get through that you are good to go, it gets better as it goes!
The first section after the whining part is to locate Aiden, and that is alot of fun and history and getting to know about the characters and the storyline that is going to be this book and this series. Which is great. It is told nicely and in a good way.
The next part is saving Aiden and/or Kenna, and this makes up the rest of the book, so you get a lot of adventure and action. There is still some history coming out and building the storyline and it all works well.
There is a short teaser at the end for the next book, and I can't wait....have it on my list!
