Blog Tour: The Fire Wars - Kailin Gow, Book Review (137) & (138).

The Fire Wars (Fire Wars #1)

Publication: 17th October 2011
Publisher: The Edge
Pages: 262
Genre: Dystopian/Fantasy
Age Appropriate: Young Adult
A dystopian romance that takes place on an island and is the melding of mythologies from two different cultures.

Her destiny was written in the books...but can she change a course that has already begun thousands of years ago?

Mackenzy Evers had moved with her mother from Angel Island to Aeros Island during her senior year. What can be worse than to finish her senior year at a new school?

Living during the post-Erosion period on Earth where there is less land than before, Mac is happy to discover an island of rich beauty and lush landscapes, not to mention mysterious handsome boys and an ancient prophecy that is set to come true in Mac's lifetime.

Chance Cutter claims she is his Queen, his goddess to his Fire King, whom he had been searching for years. Their attraction to each other is undeniable, yet why does he seem to hate her? And who is she really?

My Thoughts...
Kailin Gow has accomplished the unaccomplishable, for the first time that I can remember I cannot decide who I want the heroine to be with, I love them both and I find it extremely impossible to choose between the two, what Gow has given us is two extremely interesting, handsome and charismatic cousins Chance and Varun.
Mac has just moved to Aeros Island with her mother, on her first day of school she is introduced to cousins Chance and Varun, Chance seems very familiar and she realises that he is the masked boy that she danced with the night before but his demeanor towards her is anything but friendly and so she starts out dating Varun but although there is mutual attraction between the two she is inextricably drawn to Chance who is aloof whenever they are together.
But what Mac discovers is that the island is filled with people who are embodiments of gods and goddesses, and that she may be a the embodiment of a goddess that is the cause of the friction between Chance and Varun, with Chance being the Fire King and Varun the Water King and she has to make the choice of who to be with, but will history repeat itself  and have Mac and up with the one that she will end up leaving for the other?
I'm so loving this series, and can't wait to see where this series will go.
I give this 4/5.

Fire Stones (Fire Wars #2)


As the war between the water gods and fire gods rage on in the forms of their Embodiments, Mac was forced to take on the side of her mother’s, causing her to betray her eternal love Chance.  Her destiny still calls for them to be together, but now with her taking on the abilities of her mother’s heritage, things have gotten much more complicated.
