My Review:

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Delfia was your typical teenager, or so she thought.  With her sixteenth birthday coming up, she wants what every teen does, a driver's permit and a car.  Unfortunately, her birthday brings more tragedy and heartache than she can bear.  Her adopted parents have been murdered, and people are trying to kill her.  As her father is dying she hears a cryptic message in her head telling her to find Alec, that she can trust him.  He takes her to meet Cassandra, the woman that has written the prophecy  of the Bright Fire.

This was a great fantasy novel, it was fast paced and quite a page turner.  I'm not sure how Delfia was able to function after witnessing her parents' murder.  Then to be told that your biological parents are mythological beings.  I'm not sure how she wrapped her head around that as quickly as she did.  This is a wonderful clean read that expands your imagination.
