In this first book in the Midnight Fire Series, Kira moved to Charleston with her mom, dad and little sister, but she has been attending private school in New York for the last four years. She didn’t meet anyone when home for the summer. So her first day at the local high school is a bit nerve wracking. Fortunately fellow student, Luke Bowrey, takes pity on her and becomes her guide in the maze of hallways. He also saves her at lunch, introducing her to the other new students that came before her. They all become fast friends. Kira’s new friends give her the lay of the land, pointing out certain groups at school including the misfits. This group keeps to themselves, yet one catches Kira’s interest, Tristan. He appears the tortured bad boy and different from the other three in the group.
Tristan’s interest is also peaked when it comes to Kira but he knows they can’t be together. He has secrets that he is hiding. They all include Luke. Kira can feel it but doesn’t know what. She gets a weird feeling in class when she and Tristan get into an argument. Then when she and Tristan are confronted by the rest of his group later, the world changes for Kira. She learns the secrets that everyone has been keeping, even those about her. She is shocked and her world will never be the same.
I liked this story. It starts out mysterious with the misfit group and their secrets. The author hints at things as the story unfolds. Kira knows something is up just as the reader is. You enter this journey with Kira as both character and reader try to figure out what is going on.
When the secrets come out, it wasn’t what I expected. It is a twist on the vampire/vampire hunter storyline. The author added some different ideas to a classic battle. Kira is the innocent heroine and Diana is an excellent villain. The author went all out with the mean girl attitude. She is a good character to hate. The battle of good versus evil is clearly drawn between the two groups. Tristan is the wild card. You aren’t sure which direction he is going to go. I like that he is trying to protect Kira but the author clearly shows how hard his fight will be.
Kira and her friends are awesome characters. Everyone needs friends like them. Tristan is the tortured character everyone wants to save. Then Diana, John and Jerome are the ones to hate. It was a great read and I can’t wait to read the next book. I give this story a 4 out of 5.
This is an interesting take on the vampire story. The history and heritage of the conduits, their warring belief systems, and their ethno-cultural survival tactics are really well thought out and inventive.
Luke and his friends are the perfect balance to the more dark and serious tone of the story. They have so much heart, defined personalities, and bring wonderful banter and comic relief.
Kira is not the stereotypical wallflower in a vampire world. She makes the story her own, has passions, friends, and strong convictions but also has flaws. She is just as confused and insecure about boys as any high school girl. Kira is relatable and someone who the average reader would grow to love and respect as a heroine.
The easy way Tristan and Kira love each other despite internal conflicts and external protests from their friends is beautiful and just feels so right.
The action scenes are graphically bloody, and the suspense throughout is certainly nerve-racking.
It was a little slow to start but picks up after a while. Some readers may lose interest.
A vampire insight on their origin would have been a good counterbalance.
More of Tristan and Diana’s past would have helped to understand their natures and deviations in character, especially why Diana is so evil.
All in all, Ignite was an enjoyable read, uncomplicated, flowed smoothly, and had a similar tone as Aprilynne Pike’s Wings. If you liked Wings and are not apprehensive about vampires then give this a try. Warning: A bunch of reviews on Goodreads really slam this book as slow and boring, honestly, I really don’t know where that came from but to each their own.
