I was given a copy from the author for an honest review. Now let’s get the party started. Erin’s life is falling into place for her finally. Things are wonderful in school, her sister is happy, she has friends, her scar is almost gone and Sean the love of her life is with her. But when a new girl named Louise moves into town and goes after Erin’s boyfriend, Erin is so up for the battle. This story ended too soon for me. I just want Ms. Urban to keep us entertained so Ms. Urban, we want more and ...more

This is a fast paced young adult paranormal read. I loved the constant human factors that comes to play in this book. Erin is not perfect, her younger sister is the athletic pretty girl but when they need to be a family they are. Once all starts to unfold it becomes obvious that this family will stick together and even after the main male protagonist is introduced he falls in with their family dvd nights on Friday. Sean is the perfect boy and their love is what keeps balance…. but Sean is not al ...more

"Erin the Fire Goddess: Betrayal" by Lavinia Urban is a nice follow up to the first book in the series.
Back at school, our heroine Erin has a slightly easier time than before. She is happily in love with Sean and is also making friends with some other kids with super powers. Far from a regular super hero again the focus is on the emotional development of the characters and their relationships and their coming of age. There are some mysteries to be solved though and life is not completely free o

My poor Erin!
I won't say more than that!
It was another fabulous part of this great series.
The story is one you can't helped but getting wrapped up in! Erin and Sean are just amazing.
That tramp ugh wanted to knocked her head off! There was so much revealed and so much more that I need to know! I will admit the ending left my mouth wide open but, I am ok with that!!

Another R2R for this book and I couldn't be happier to do it.
When we last left Erin, life was looking good and it seemed that things were finally looking up for our fire girl. Unfortunately, there has to be conflict or the story wont go anywhere. That's where Louise comes in and the drama begins.
As much as I liked the first book, I love this one even more, but I wished it hadn't ended so abruptly. I wanted to keep on reading. I shall not wait impatiently until the next book.

Stars: 3.5

Overall: The romance between Erin and Sean was still electric and steamy. It seemed like the closer they became the more they were able to read and understand each other. Our villain i have to say was a little on the tame side compared to Jessica in the last book. I expected Louise to be a little more aggressive towards Sean, but maybe everything has a reason. I am still very unsure about Dr. Hammersmith'

I felt like a lunker bass while reading Lavinia Urban's second (I think) novel, “Erin the Fire Goddess – Betrayal”. First, she dangled some bait in front of me – in the form of a prologue (which, like most prologues I have read, comes totally out of left field but eventually gets explained in the novel) and a quick introduction to the characters of the novel (which I read about in the first book, but it's been long enough that I needed the refresher). She starts slow – has trouble getting and ma ...more

WOW! Where do I start? I give this book 5 stars, wish I could give it more. Even with the grammer mistakes it was still an awesome read. The storyline was amazing and the characters very well developed.

Again, the story is amazing! Erin has finally settled into her new role, having friends, and getting used to her powers. She's trying to make peace with Justin, especially now that he and her sister Kasey-rae are in love.
A new girl at school, who apparently has the power of manipulation, has set her sights on Sean, and the tension it causes is understandable after her display of stealing a boy at school right off his girlfriend's lips. More new friends with powers confirm Louise's intentions, b

3.5 Stars

The new school year begins, and Erin has suddenly become more popular. All the students believe she has had laser treatment on her birthmark and that’s fine by her, even though it does highlight just how shallow they are! Sean is as attentive as ever and even Kasey-Ray and Justin share a little romance. It is not all plain sailing though, once Louise, a new girl in town, shows up and decides that Sean is the boy for her, things get a little tetchy!

Rating- 4.1 STARS!
REVIEW: I started off reading this book, with a lot of questions. This was because, the way the first book ended, was perfect, which left no ideas to the readers, as to where Urban would take Erin next. To say the least, I was thoroughly impressed. There was a lot of drama, and jealousy, which I loved! Also, and I hardly say this, the villain from the previous book, Dr. Hammersmith, was explored quite nicely in Betrayal. I always admire that in an author- the ability to tell di

My review of Erin, The Fire Goddess, The Beginning written by Lavinia Urban
I was given this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

To start off, I have to applaud Lavinia for originality. Never had I read a story close to Erin’s. Immediately I was drawn to Erin because of her imperfections. It’s the flaws that bring out the inner beauty in this lead character that makes me want to read on. The mysterious facial birthmark has a rich family history that draws multiple inquiries as to what

This review may have some spoilers for those of who that haven't read book one. Honestly if you havent read book one you should be ashamed of yourselves!! Go, on and save yourself the agony and buy it.

This is the second book in the Erin trilogy, and it picks up directly where book one had left off. We find Erin still coming to grips with learning that she has been given these extra powers to mold and create fire. Other than that lit

Imagine going through life as a teenager with what feels like a disfigurement. Every gawks when you come by and cruel kids make fun of you.

Meet Erin and this is her story. Erin has a huge birthmark that takes up most of her cheek. She has been ridiculed her whole life about it and as her family moves away she is excited to leave the cruel kids in her school behind. Only, it's not as Erin had hoped.

Erin the Fire Goddess : The beginning by Lavinia Urban

Rating 5*****

This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

Once Erin packed and moved back to her parents hometown, her life finally started to change for the better. She made friends, was finally able to relax, and was even crushing on one super hot guy. Only one thing seemed off, and that was one girl's menacing behavior anytime Erin stepped near Sean.

After the first part in the series, I expected a lot from the second book, and was not disappointed with it!

The relations between the persons are deepened, some loose ends get solved and others are created, and some new figures are introduced that play a big role in how the book ends.

With a title like "Betrayal" you know something shocking is going to happen, but it still took me by surprise what it was and the reaction of the main figure on the it. But if you see the age of the main character,

Erin the Fire Goddess: Betrayal

Betrayal continues where The Beginning left off, and Erin is continuing to try and get to grips with not only her own powers, but with everything that is happening. More characters are introduced in this book, giving it more depth, and I can see these becoming big parts in the story to come. I enjoyed this book even more than the first, probably because the story was already set, and will continue to read to see what comes next for Erin as there are

Betrayal picks up where 'The Beginning' ends and nicely continues the story. I read this book a while ago and couldn't review it due to my exams so I've forgotten many details. But I did like the introduction of the new characters. And that old book. XD

My main problem with this book, like the previous one, was the erratic spelling and grammar. At times, I lost track of what was happening and the writing seemed superfluous. Also, there really wasn't much of a plot. But I did enjoy the (view spoil

It had it's own unique take on the paranormal genre. It wasn't written as American, so at times a little hard to understand, but was very refreshing. In all honesty, it could use another read through/edit. But it doesn't really take away from the story. I tend to be a grammar Nazi or so I've been told. I love the Yin & Yang of the couples. The story is detailed and is very interesting to read. I will definitely be getting the next book to find out what happens.

I LOVED the second install of Erin the Fire Goddess series. It progressed nicely from the first book.

The story line was great - simple but thrilling. Erin is so to relate to that you can't help but feels how she feels. The extra characters really helped to develop the story and I'm interested to know where the story will go from here.

It is a must read and I am about to start the 3rd one in a few minutes.

Having read the first book I was looking forward to reading this book!
I loved catching up with Erin and the rest of the gang.
Finally Kasey-ray finds her power.
I don't like Louise much though and I'm intrigued to see what role Scott plays in it all!!
I can't wait to read "Torment" to see what happens next, especially after the shocking ending of this book

After years being bully and looked over Erin starts the school year off with a boyfriend and feeling good about herself, but like all things it must come to an end.

When her worst nightmare walks in, Louise and she wants Sean.

The question is will Sean betrayal her and what kind of powers do Louise have ?

There is no happy ending here so you will have read book three.

Great clean read....
