Wishing on Wednesday [24]

Wishing and hoping, and thinking and praying...

"Ashline Wilde is about to discover that when you’re the reincarnation of a Polynesian volcano goddess, “new beginnings” are just a myth.

Leaving the fiery ruins of her sophomore year behind her, Ash travels to the sizzling beaches of Miami, hot on the trail of the little sister she’s only seen in visions. But her happy family reunion isn’t all palm trees and paradise. A cult of evil gods-on-earth, known as the Four Seasons, has kidnapped her sister to use in its terrifying new religion. Soon, the streets of Miami erupt in chaos and violence…and Ash gets caught right in the tropical crossfire

Ash isn’t without help, however. Unexpected romance arrives in the form of Wes, an Aztec god of night with his own vendetta against the Four Seasons. As memories of Ash’s previous life begin to flicker into her dreams, the boundaries between ally and enemy, life and death, and love and hate all bleed together. And when a mysterious trickster from her past reappears to derail her new quest, Ash must choose between the echoes of a once-forgotten yesterday and the embers of an uncertain future.

Because when old flames return from the dead, even a volcano goddess can get burned.

I blame Rachel at Fiktshun for this one, it's completely her fault and I'm ever so grateful for her. It's because of her enthusiasm that I was so eager for Wildefire and because of her giveaway that I was able to read it early! I LOVED Wildefire. It was one of the best paranormal stories I had read in awhile and it was about GODS AND GODDESSES. Even better that it wasn't about the Greek ones we usually hear about, it was a mixture! And the ending, oh the ending! Talk about a cliffhanger. Karsten Knight was friggen' brilliant and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for us with Embers & Echoes.


  1. Wasn't actually a huge fan of the first one but I'm curious to see what happens after THAT ending. Rachel is terrible, she always makes me really want to read things :P

    The Cait Files

  2. I know! That ending was insane. I swear I just kept flipping pages after that trying to find the rest of the book.

    And yes, Rachel is terrible. Her posts always fill my cart on Amazon...or at the very least my wishlist. She's dangerous!
