Through the Fire, by Michelle Irwin, is a young/new adult fantasy romance mix. It gives a first person account of our main character, and all the things she discovers—what she is, who she loves, as well as her struggles and losses along the way. It’s Book 1 of Daughter of the Fire Series, bringing a fast-paced and action filled enjoyable romp to what looks like a very promising series.
Although this is not my normal book of choice, I absolutely loved it. Irwin deftly creates the modern real world as well as the fantasy one. Her use of first person character was excellent, and I felt I really came to know her and care about her life and those around her. Where suspense was needed it was top-notch and I could not put the book down. The romance part of this book should attract those who enjoy love stories, but it also caters to the fantasy lovers just as much.
I highly recommend this book and give it a hearty five star rating. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
