Books to Look Out For...

Published July 26th 2011 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Ashline Wilde never received an instruction manual on how to be a 16-year-old Polynesian volcano goddess. If she had, it might have contained helpful warnings such as:

• Dreaming about your (thankfully) mortal boyfriend may cause your bed to spontaneously combust
• Oven mitts should be worn at all times during heavy make-out sessions

Instead, Ash has to learn these life lessons the hard way as her dormant powers erupt at the most awkward times. In the wake of a hometown tragedy, Ash transfers to Blackwood Academy, a boarding school nestled in California’s redwoods, where a group of fellow gods-on-earth have mysteriously convened. As if sophomore year couldn’t get any worse, her storm goddess older sister, the wild and unpredictable Eve, resurfaces to haunt Ashline. With a war between the gods looming over Blackwood, Ash must master the fire smoldering within her before she clashes with her sister one final time, which leads us to life-lesson #3:

When warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.  
At first I honestly thought that this book had some connection to Angelfire; that it was like a sequel or something. However it has no relation whatsoever, different authors.

The book has superpowers, gods, and a boarding school, so its on my list. What is it with boarding schools? I don't know!! But every book that has a boarding school in it I have to check out. What about you? 

Books that have used the boarding school thing to their advantage: Vampire Academy, Evernight, The Gemma Doyle series, among many others. And it seems to work for them...


  1. I love that cover and I love Boarding school books. Thanks for letting me know about this one!

  2. I have a thing for boarding schools as well, Gemma Doyle is a perfect example <3
    I'm not sure Wildefire can really spark my interest though, it just sounds kind of absurd... but that a guy has written it makes it sounds slightly more interesting again.


Read your opinion, I want. Leave a comment, you shall.
