Series: Book 2 of Wildefire
The Good: While there are definitely some growing pains in this second installment of the Wildefire series, it ends powerfully - giving readers a strong and definite need to read the next book. Ash learns a lot in this novel, as well as develops her character more fully, molding her and the situation into something that may work extremely well in the future.
The Bad: The things that made Wildefire really shine - the boarding school, Ash's relationship with her friends and the mystery as to what is really going on are all MIA here. Ash on her own isn't compelling enough to carry a story. While she meets more gods and goddesses in Miami, they aren't in the same place as Ash in her development of abilities and the chemistry feels off.
