I loved Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed, and I couldn’t wait to see what she’d give us in Trial by Fire – this talented author did not disappoint! I was intrigued from the beginning and completely captivated when Lily’s world was turned upside down. All of the characters are very enjoyable, and I love Rowan. I have so many questions, though – especially his lack of appearance in our world. This makes me nervous! Spirit walking, Crucibles, Mechanics, the creepy Woven… I was so absorbed in this magical tale Ms. Angelini weaved that it was a jolt when I finished the book and came back to my world – which was mundane in comparison, to say the least. I want to go back! I need so much more, and the wait for book two is going to be a painful one – and I don’t even have a mechanic of my own to get me through. Sigh. Fantasy readers and lovers of paranormal will definitely want to grab this up!
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
