The Fire Wars Review

262 pages
Mackenzy Evers had moved with her mother from Angel Island to Aeros Island during her senior year. What can be worse than to finish her senior year at a new school? Living during the post-Erosion period on Earth where there is less land than before, Mac is happy to discover an island of rich beauty and lush landscapes, not to mention mysterious handsome boys and an ancient prophecy that is set to come true in Mac's lifetime. Chance Cutter claims she is his Queen, his goddess to his Fire King, whom he had been searching for years. Their attraction to each other is undeniable, yet why does he seem to hate her? And who is she really?

This book was pretty good. I love books that focus on mythology and this definitely brought a nice tie-in to that. At the same time its also dystopian and based on my reviews you can see how much I love dystopian novels. This might definitely be one of the best books I've read from Kailin Gow thus far. There is a kind of triangle between Mac and the two guys vying for her attention. I love the intensity of the way the relationships are described. I especially enjoyed how it was revealed to be connected to Roman mythology. I can't wait to read the next book in the series since this one left me wanting more. I definitely recommend this for those who are fans of dystopian novels and mythology as well.
