Story line was ok for the age group but there were many problems with the writing. I could over-look the staccato sentences but the punctuation and typos need to be reworked. Also the book is fraught with inconsistencies. A few examples: At my Kindle location #358 she states that "She turned the music off." But 6 lines above that she already said that she turned the music off. Another place she said it had stopped raining then just a little later said "rain pelted down." Author also over-uses the "retinal burn" concept.
It would seem the author is just plain sloppy. She should get an editor & proof reader.

This was a quick read, but a good one. It was based on an interesting premise that combines alien tech, magic, and war in a modern world. While the protagonist, Mieshka, is a young adult, the book did not have the naive, whiny YA voice that so many authors slip into. Mieshka has already lost a parent to the war and moves through the events in the story with courage and eyes wide open, despite her very realistic emotional scars and fears. The characters were all intriguing and fleshed out, and the story has a lot of potential that predicts that this will continue to be a good series. It is also well-written and edited, which has become an unfortunate rarity among indie authors. This author is one to follow!

I liked this book. I will buy the next one. It was difficult to figure out what was happening in the beginning. But once I figured it out, I loved mieshka. The story was good. I feel like the only character I connected with was Mieshka. The world created was a dystopia with magic and all the elements. I loved the way her magic presented itself as a Phoenix and was like a separate entity.

Into the Fire was the first paranormal that I've read of it's kind. It's magic, elements, war, dystopia, and aliens all mixed into one. It was hard to get into and I found myself confused most of the times during the first few chapters of the book, but I slowly got ino it the more I read.

I liked Mieshka's character. She was trying to cope with the loss of her mother to a war from another city that has been destroyed already and because of that, I found her to be strong and definitely a survivor. I liked the part where she discovered she had magic, too. There was something about that scene that stuck onto my mind. It was sad that the grieving of his father took it's toll on their relationship. I still loved his dad, though! He was pretty cool.

"It can wait. I wrote a note for your school, excusing you from any more recruitment calls."
"You can do that?"
"Of course I can. I'm your father." He paused. "You should probably know that I told them we were Buddhist."

Aiden wasn't my favorite character of all time but I didn't dislike him either. I was kind of neutral with him. I didn't connect with his character very much although he was an okay character. He had a few moments with Mieshka that I liked especially when he was training her.

In summary, Into the Fire was an enjoyable read. There were time when it was confusing and times when it was predictable. There were still a lot of unanswered questions (well, at least I still have some) and I'm guessing it will be answered in the next installment. It would also have been nice if there were more explanation or back story just so I wouldn't have been confused most of the time. I would recommend reading this book to those who are looking for something new in the paranormal genre.

This was an enjoyable dystopian with a few interesting twists. The cities of the 'new' world are protected from the enemy armies with magical shields, which are slowly dying. Despite this touch of magic, the setting remains a fairly normal, large, and terribly over-populated city, where magic is by no means the only power in play.

I really enjoyed the world building in this story. Although it's about future cultures being built on today's destroyed ones, there's still many aspects that make if feel familiar, e.g., subways, pizza boxes or school cafeterias. It was a bit difficult to get into the story during the first chapters, but that had nothing to do with this world, rather with the characters. The story starts from a supporting character's point of view (not the main character), which made it a bit difficult to figure out who to concentrate on at first. Plus, I felt the characters were a bit empty during the first chapters. I would have really liked to have gotten to know them better earlier on.

Unlike many dystopians for young adults, this one has basically no romance. No this isn't bad. Really. I was expecting some (just because there always seems to be a romantic interest involved), but it was refreshing to see the characters concentrate on the more pressing matters than on each other. It's not to see that a story can survive without the girl/boy difficulties.

Once the story got going, this was a fun read. The story had a good pace and moved along from one adventure into the next. After the first couple of chapters, I was excited to see what would happen next and definitely cheered Mieshka on. There were enough unexpected twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end. After getting past those first chapters, this is definitely an enjoyable book.
