Impatiently Waiting! Embers and Echoes by Karsten Knight


Expected Publish Date:
August 28, 2012

Summary: 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.


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Wildefire was so good---and such a cliffhanger ending! I can't wait for this one.

I read Wildefire last year, and it was good. I love how all world mythologies from all over the world are valid and exist in the real world of the story. But, I'm not sure I want to continue the series. It just wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. Although, now that I read the synopsis for book 2, I wonder if I should rethink that plan.
