I'm not going to spoil the book for those who haven't read it yet!
Now, most of YA books are very unoriginal (they have the same plot over and over again) which makes them dull. However, this one keeps you guessing until the very end, and the story was refreshing.
When I was reading I was trying to guess what the characters were,
Ever ate too much candy? Ya know, when you eat so much you get sick from it but can't make yourself stop from eating more? Yea, this book = that.
Interesting paranormal concept. Somewhat original and I applaud the author for that. Sadly, not strong enough to make me wanna stick around.
The 'heroine' is beyond annoying - whiny, weak, immature, pathetic, TSTL. I don't need my heroines to be kickass right away, they can grow into that role, but there is only ...more
OMGOMGOMG, FINALLY, A GOOD BOOK; I was beginning to lose hope in authors' with all the crappy books I've been reading, BUT THIS, THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED.
P.S. I really didn't expect this book to be good because the cover was so cheesy
I'M FILLED WITH SO MANY EMOTIONS, DO YOU WANT ME TO EXPLAIN THEM? OKAY HERE YOU GO-
(view spoiler)[SURPRISED: I'M SURPRISED THIS BOOK TURNED OUT SO GOOD
HAPPY: I'M HAPPY I HAVE FOUND THIS BOOK; I'M HAPPY KNOWING I GET TO READ THE 2ND BOOK RIGHT AWAY

I was gifted this arc by the Author, Rebecca Ethington in exchange for my honest review. This is the first book in the Imdalind Series. I have to admit upon first looking at the cover, I really didn't like it at all. After reading the book, I realise that the female on the cover is Joclyn who at one point in the book falls from a window, but I still think the cover could do so much more for this well written action packed book. The cover could j ...more
WHAT?! NO!! That was NOT supposed to happen!! I can't be left hanging like this!! So NOT fair!! Ugh!!
I was totally sucked into Kiss of Fire from the start and absolutely LOVED it!! Joclyn and Ryland quickly moved their way to the top of my most cutest and amazing couples list!! They ...more
Wow!! Just wow!!! What an amazing start to the Imdalind series. Kiss of Fire was a book that contained everything. Bursting with suspense, action, romance, passion, heartbreak and excitement. This was a book that I had a really hard time putting down because I was desperate to find out where the story was going to take me.
Joclyn Despain has had a mark on her neck since the age of five. Sensing that t ...more
Loved it! Kiss of Fire was such a brilliant book-just perfect.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I liked the idea, but I felt it could easily have ended up being a dull, predictable book. Turns out I didn't have to worry because this book was amazing. The twists, the turns, the surprises-they had me on the edge of my seat.
Joclyn was a wonderful heroine. She deals with everything thrown at her with ...more
I thought the book was well written and flowed pretty well, for the most part. I liked the beginning and ...more
This story was full of love, action, despair, and heartbreak. Joclyn was marked when she was five, but doesn't find out what it means until she is 16. But she keeps the mark hidden. Ryland is her best friend since childhood that she has slowly fallen in love with. They both have secrets hidden from each other. A big secret will tear them apart.
My heart breaks for Ryland, and Joclyn's broken heart. But I am so excited to continue this series and see what other heart wrenching plo ...more
Now on to Eyes of Ember.....!
In the beginning I was feeling a little impatient, it took a long time for anything to really happen (I was exactly 43% through when things started happening). But after I finished I was grateful for the first half of the book. I was grateful that we were able to spend so much time w ...more
First and foremost, I quickly grew tired of all of the Czech words and sentences without any translations. Then, the dialogue became quite repetitive until at one point, I went back to the previous page to make sure that I was actually reading the s ...more
Nocturnal Predators Reviews
It's official, I hate this author for creating such a compelling and out-of-this-world novel. I mean that in an endearing and loving way. Half the year is gone and this is the first novel that I've read this year that was actually original and kept you guessing all though the ending, which is a cliff hanger (BOO!). Thank god I didn't pick this up when it released in November of last year.
The plot is so original and freeing that it's actually hard...more
Kiss of Fire is a wonderful story that will completely capture you in the prologue, and won't even let you go after you finish the last word. It was such a captivating story with amazing characters that kept building.
There is a little bit of everything and I am so thrilled that I still have 3 more books to share in this world. Rebecca Ethington's rich and colorful ...more
Kiss Of Fire bring us into the world that involves magic, different creatures, and constant fight between good and evil. Joclyn is the Chosen Child who received a Kiss that gave her magic. But all her life she hated that "Kiss", a scar by her ear that she tried to hide every single minute of her life. Because her dad walked out on her, the only thing Joclyn could do is blame herself for everything and try not to stand out. Her Best friend Ryland is the only friend she has ...more
As you might already know, I love YA and I love paranormal romance so, yes I was drawn to this book from the moment I received the invitation for the tour.
And I'm glad I chose to review it! Because I loved it!
It was predictable. Yes, absolutely. From page one you can see where the book is going but the way the author gets there, it's amazing.
A marvellous journey.
Ryland is delicious and I love every single interaction from him and Jos.
She is great, a little too reserved but a great char ...more
Ethington made it clear that Joc was not emo or sad. She was more on the socially awkward side. Unlike most p ...more

Joclyn has been raised alone by her mom since she was five years old when a very strange sickness came over her and left a rather strange mark on her neck. Either due to the stress of the situation or something else her dad decided he couldn't handle it anymore and left. Being a single parent is incredibly hard but her mom finds a job as a cook in the ho ...more
Joclyn is a pretty normal teenage girl that goes to a pretty typical high school. She doesn't like attention, so she wears hoodies and baggy clothes in order to blend in the background. She is not popular or even kinda liked by most people at her high school. She is also the target of bullying. However, she does have a wonderful boy that's a friend that's more than a friend named Ryland, so that makes her life a little better. The only ...more
Since that ultra-famous lightning bolt scar burst onto the scene, I have gravitated to all things witchy, so when I read the description of this book, it summoned me as surely as an accio spell. But when I dove in, I began to see that outsider-turned-chosen-one pattern and wondered if this one was going to be another rip off as transparent as a threadbare Hogwart’s robe, and while there are some basic similarities (the scar, the de ...more
