Into the Cold Fire is the second book the the Daughters of the Moon series and it focuses around Serena, the Daughter with the power to read minds. Just like in the first book I loved the interactions of all four girls but I wasn't the biggest fan of Serena (my favorite is still Catty and I can't wait for her book).

In this book Serena is being targeted by the Atrox to join his army. I really enjoy getting to know more about the Atrox and the Followers. Serena is being pul

Serena Killingsworth is like any other student, except when it comes to her reading minds and being a goddess of the moon. Vanessa, Jimena, and Catty are always there to help her out. But lately Serena has been having problems remembering what has happened. At school Serena is approached by the new guy at school. Who by the way is a Follower of the Atrox trying to turn her into the Witch Goddess. Stanton is also a Follower but he is attracted to Serena and is willing to risk anything as she is t ...more

This is the second book in the Daughters of the Moon series and saying I loved it a hell of a lot more than the first one would be the understatement of the century! It wasn't because the first book sucked, it was a fine three star book, but THIS one...

It tells the story of the other daughter , Serena and her struggle with temptation when it comes to the dark side.
The story was really well written because of the almost none linear narration and that's pretty much all I can say

This fun adventure takes you through the lives of teenage girls as they navigate through the troubles of boys, school, and romance. To top that all off, they are Daughters of the Moon which make them Goddesses with unique powers. In this particular book, we follow Serena as she is manipulated by the dark forces of Atrox. We follow her story as she tries to fight the darkness. As a side note, there is a character in these books that I still vividly remember to this day. I read these books when I ...more

For starters, I think I enjoyed this book much more than the first one. This book focuses on Serena, who is probably my favorite of the four girls. As a result I connected more to this book than the first.

GOOD: As i said, i like this book much more than the first. I connected really well with Serena, so it made the book that much more enjoyable. I like the plot of this one more as well! Every detail seemed to connect so well and it all resolved into a great ending. I cant wait to mov

Another 3.5 stars. Like I said, I feel like I'm rating these from the first time I read them when I was 15 and not now, BUT that being said, Serena is my bitch and I love her. She's my favorite Goddess for such. I loooooove her mind reading stuff. I think she has the greatest gift of all the girls and I love how much MORE it is then just mind reading. She can do so many other things with it, and that was kind of cool to read. I liked the story line here. I liked that we got to see a darker side ...more

It's amazing how you can go from plot point to resolution in a single paragraph! Oh noes, the bad thing happened. That's okay, as soon as the paragraph ends the next one will instantly and conveniently solve it.

Was really hoping they would get more depth than this, but I guess not. The ADD in the same section also seems to have gotten worse. There's no real flow to these, just a random jumble of ideas that sort of go together. Easy read, but super confusing. How many of these are there?

I think this book could have worked well as an series aimed at older readers, and that there wasn't that silly age limit. The age limit always bothered me because at 17 many teenagers are still unsure of what they want in life and so forth. To me it just felt like a cheesy plot device, but the story itself did interest me, it could just have been more developed.

Absolutely average. I still enjoy this series for nostalgia and eventually finishing the final book, but objectively this series is only a half-step higher than Twilight. I don’t think I’d have my kids read it, mostly for the obsession with guys constantly. Everything else that’s cheesy I’m fine with. I do like the sisterhood aspect.

This one was better than the first. There is still alot of boy stuff and clothes and makeup but this time we know the characters, their powers and the backstory, so there is a lot more action rather than the trying to figure out things from the first.
I think teens would like it, but it's not bad for adults either. A quick read that has some decent action and an interesting plot.

Book two of the Daughters of the Moon series lived up to the first in the series, delivering girl power and friendships that warm the heart. My biggest problem was that a lot of the things that happened seemed jumbled through out the book, which makes sense considering the plot of this installment, but it made it hard for me to keep up with at some points. Still, overall this was a fun, quick read!




5 out of 5

Serena’s power to read minds comes in handy sometimes, but it also makes her more at risk to turning to the Atrox. So, when the Atrox attempts to turn her, what will the rest of the Daughters of the Moon do? Will Jimena and the rest of the Daughters be able to prevent the premonition of Serena turning?

What I liked:
-Serena and Jimena’s friendship. They’re very close—more like sisters than just friends—and it really shows in this book. Jimena is willing to risk her own life just to save Serena, and I absolutely love friendships like that.
-Secondary cast. Catty is probably my favorite of the four girls, and Vanessa is a close second, but I also like Jimena and Maggie and Stanton. Unfortunately with this book, I found myself enjoying the parts about the other girls instead of Serena’s problems

This is the second book in the Daughters of the Moon series, and Serena is the narrator of this book.
Her talent is the ability to read minds, where her best friend Jimena gets premonitions of the future. Their mentor Maggie has helped them hone, or understand their skills. Serena is a bit of a rebel, and doesn't always follow the rules, and she is in danger as Stanton, the sexy leader of Atrox's Followers, is after her to subvert her powers towards evil to bring the Daughters of Moon down.

This story is about four girls with extraordinary abilities.

I definitely was more invested in this novel than the first, because I felt like I got to know the girls better in this one. I like Serena more than I liked Vanessa, and I can't wait to read Jimena's POV novel, because she seems awesome.

Serena, Jimena, Catty, and Vanessa are all best friends now, and they are working on controlling their powers together. Serena spends a night at the beach with her brother and sees an evil Atrox initiation ritual involving a cold fire that makes you i

In the prequel to #1 Goddess Of The Moon, Lynne Ewing introduces us to a new point of view in Serena. Fearless, determined, and romantic, Serena has big dreams and like the other daughters, is slightly confused but ready to face her uncertain future and fulfill her destiny as a goddess. Serena identifies herself with Hekate (Hecate), the goddess of witchcraft, due to her ability to read minds.

The plot begins in the first chapter and continues even faster since no re-introductions are made to th

These four girls are all gifted in their own way Serena can read minds, Catty can time travel, Vanessa goes invisible and Jimena has vision about the future. One thing i like about about these girls is how they are always there for each other,no matter what.They really show the true meaning of friendship which is a very good thing.

In the book because Serena does not have a boyfriend which is her own cause because she drives them way that was why she fell for Zahi's spell. They are really ver

Hm... This book had an interesting idea, but I think the twists were all given away because I vaguely recalled having read it so many years ago when I was in high school. I don't know if I would have felt differently about it if I hadn't known - for the most part - what was going to happen.

Probably more like a 3.5 rating.

Going to keep this review kind of short and sweet.... which is actually a good comparison to the book.

Very much like the first book, this is a typical middle grade book, where it is highly repetitive. If you ever forget who has what power, or who the main characters are and how they met, just keep reading, it will remind you....

I actually liked this book better than the first one. It was very nicely told and I really enjoyed being put in Serena's sho

Serena Killingsworth is one of the four daughters of the moon. She seems like just a normal girl living in Los Angeles but she can read minds.
Her three other sisters Jimena (who has premonitions), Catty (who can time travel), and Vanessa (who can become invisible) were all separated at birth and have just recently been reunited.
Serena's story starts when she is on the beach with her brother and she wanders off to the cliffs. There she sees a fire with a bunch of teenagers talking a

"So your brother thinks you need a boyfriend?"he teased.
“That's Collin."She panicked."He can't see you!"
Don't tell me you're afraid of your own brother?"Staton seemed to think that was funny.She hated the smirk that crept over his face.
She shoved him."You want Collin to kill you?Hide."
That made him laugh louder."Kill me?"
Stop it,"she warned him,or he'll hear you."
You think I should be afraid of your brother?I'm immortal."
Collin's heavy steps filled the downstairs hallway.Her heart raced.Why was life so complicated?”
