First off, the main character, Corinne, is a teenager, so please cut her some slack. The author made her sound like the everyday teen. She has insecurities, she has fears, she questions older people's decision for her, she wants more freedom... but that's all hardly possible because of her..um.. condition. I rooted for her because in all fairness to her character, she's resilient. She holds up and doesn't seem to crumble under pressure. I like that she's this kid who wants to look strong on the outside. She doesn't want people to view her as weak, which is just right because after all, fire is her element... and we all know fire IS STRONG. :)
Corinne meets Rowan and things start to change. She starts feeling other things. This is also right about the time her gran teaches her about her gift. Anyway, Rowan is what you would expect a hero to be. He's charming, nice, a great talker. I appreciate their banters because he's really sweet. However, he could be very persuasive and so like other hot-blooded teenagers. He's umm.. well, let's just say that he really likes to get hot and heavy with Corinne. He's almost perfect, so the twist to his character is so outrageously unexpected. I totally didn't see it coming. My feelings for this twist is still kind of vague. We'll see on the next book.
The love part in this book is actually quite cute, albeit a little abrupt. Even though they just met, the like at first sight works well. However, when I consider Corinne's age... I would thank her for trying to hold things back a little. Since their scenes have lots of kissing and um.. petting, it's just right to put a little limit for now since it's all so new. I commend her for not being swept away too fast. There, I just had to say that. ;)
Something also has to be said about the adults in this book. They did their best to take care of Corrine. As far as I could tell, the whole family loves her and is concerned about her well being. It's a nice touch. :) I wish for all of them to stay safe as the series goes by (this is a series, right?).
The ending promises a good continuation for Corinne's and her family's situation. I really want to know who wants her and what they want from her. I'm looking forward to that. I'm also looking forward to how her character would grow. With all the things that has happened to her, she's bound to learn many things, right? I want to see that. I also want to see where her relationship with Rowan will go.
It's a good start to a series. :)
The story itself around Jamie’s power is unlike any other fantasy book I’ve read before. It was neat that there was also a scientific basis. But in addition to the fantasy aspect, Jamie and her friend Deepti are realistic, imperfect teenagers. Their concerns and interests are relevant and certainly modern. There is potential for a continuation of the story if Stedman wishes and I hope she does! I would love to hear more about Gran’s history and if Aiden will continue to pursue Jamie. I hope to see more from the author.

I really love the main character in he book Cronnie . She is a teenage girls that behaves like a teenage girl should. I also love how the author has managed to take an actual illness and turn it in to this amazing power without doing to much out of it.
I also love Gran and Rowan. Gran because she is this badass old lady that I fell in love with from the minute I meet her. Rowan just because he is sweet and everything a girl would want in a guy, minus hid secret.
And last, I felt that the book was a little bit short, so I'm hoping there will be another book! (if there is a second book coming i can't wait!!)
I got my example of the book in exchange for an honest review.
P.S: If you liked this book I can recommend that you try to read A Necklace of Souls by the same author ;)
