DESTINY'S FIRE Blog Tour stop, with a review!

I am so SO happy to be a part of the DESTINY'S FIRE Blog Tour! My friend Trisha Wolfe's debut novel, DESTINY'S FIRE, is amazing--filled with hotties and steampunk and romance and...did I say hotties? (Reese!!!) Ahem.

So, today my little ole blog is a stop on the blog tour, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I'm proud to help promote and spread the word about this fantastic book, and I hope each of you who reads this runs and buys a copy now--especially since it releases TODAY! (Happy Book Birthday, Trish!)

Check out all the other stops on the blog tour, and be sure to visit the final stop on January 18th for a Grand Prize giveaway!

What, exactly, is DESTINY'S FIRE? Well, here's a bit about it...

pud date - TODAY!

product description from goodreads.com

It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven. 

As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him. 

Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life.

My Review:

DESTINY'S FIRE tells the story of Dez Harkly, a shape-shifting descendant to the Egyptian secret service. She's spunky, tough, loveable--all the qualities one needs in a kick-butt heroine! From the very beginning, I fell in love with Dez and rooted for her right up to the very end. 

I'm not going to go into too much detail for fear of spoiling this awesomely fun read for others, but trust me when I say DESTINY'S FIRE has it all: an exciting, well-paced plot that moves with the right amount of action; well-rounded characters that jump from the page with distinct voices; and enough steam-inducing romance to melt glaciers. Seriously! Though the plot was so fun and addictive, it was the romance that hooked me and reeled me in--and makes me wanna jump inside Trisha's head to get the rest of the story. (One word: Reese!) (Okay, two words: Jace!)

My Rating:
Overall, DESTINY'S FIRE is a fantastic read that keeps you hooked from beginning to end, and I couldn't be happier to give it 5 Stars. I urge each of you to pick up a copy today and fall into the magical world Trisha Wolfe has created!!
