So what did I love? The beautiful and creative world Ms. Ibitz creates in Fire in the Blood is simply outstanding. Eyidora is so unique!!! I love the premise of the book, the use of element-based gods and the twist on global climate change. It's fast paced with crazy suspense and action. Poor Haley seems not to have anyone she can trust! There's a solid plot with enough resolution to feel satisfied but still hungry for the sequel. And I do eagerly await the sequel.
My only complaint is with the characters needing to be fleshed out more. Haley's "teen speak" is a bit over the top and she seems shallow and whinny at points. She's still a fairly likable character and shows some growth throughout, but these issues did hurt the book. Then there's Tuggin, that snarky guy who might have a heart of gold. However he's a bit too snarky to be sexy and comes off just hateful at times. This results in Haley seeming shallow or even a bit neurotic for being so into him. I understand where the author was going with Tuggin, but she missed her mark a bit here. With Ian, I'm missing his back story in order to understand his motivation. That back story may be lurking in a future book, so on him, I withhold judgment.
I have complete faith that as this series continues and as our author hits her stride, these issues will resolve themselves and I so look forward to reading the rest of this story. This is definitely one you'll want to pick up!

It's a hilarious fantasy/sci-fi book for young adults, complete with romance, the requisite love triangle, plotting and betraying, kidnappings, alternate worlds and runes, oh my! The whole time I was reading, I kept cracking up, which is not what I expect from this kind of book. But in the best way, of course! I love books that make me laugh. I was surprised that this book was self-published, because it seemed to fit so perfectly into the YA genre that is so popular right now.
This is a new author I believe, and I have no doubt we'll see lots more from her in the future, probably traditionally published books. If you're wary of indie books because you think they aren't well-written or edited, you'd be surprised. This book is every bit as good (or better) than the handful other YA fantasy books I've read. Even better, it's funny! The protagonist has a witty, wry and sarcastic voice that will pull you in and make you laugh. My only complaint with this book was that it ended too soon! I wish it had been a little longer. I can't wait to see what happens to Haley in the next book.
The writing style is fun, colorful, and pulls you in. I often judge a book by how quickly I read it (because if I like it, I read it every opportunity I get), and I finished this one in a few days. When the next book comes out, I will definitely pick it up!
