I have a confession… this book is the very first YA digital book I’ve ever purchased. Sure I’ve downloaded many a free book on the craft of writing and a few free romances that I have yet to ever open, but this is the first I’ve actually paid cold hard cash, errr charged to my credit card via my Amazon Prime account.
I love books. I want to hold the book in my hand and feel the pages between my fingers. But I’m learning to embrace eBooks as well and now I have two young adult books on my Kindle – one fantasy & one contemporary. More about that second book in a future post.
So that leads me to Wilde’s Fire by Krystal Wade. This YA fantasy is published by a totally cool looking indie publisher called Curiosity Quills. I just love the vibe they have and check out the cool cover art for their titles.
In Wilde’s Fire … Kate Wilde enters a portal to another world while she’s on a camping trip with her sister and best friend (Brad). Danger immediately finds them when they come face to face with Darkness and the evil creatures seeking to destroy Encardia. It’s a quick paced magical story with tons of action and intrigue. I don’t want to reveal too many spoilers, but I will say that I loved how Kate’s romantic relationship with Arland (leader of an outpost protecting the people of Encardia) was developed. And… the story ended with a great twist I was not expecting.
This is the first in the Darkness Falls Trilogy, all of which are available at Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. I’m definitely looking forward to Book 2 – Wilde’s Army.
If you enjoy magical stories packed with action, well developed characters, romantic heat and a richly crafted world, I believe you’ll like this YA fantasy.
