Editorial Reviews

"I couldn't stop reading.... I bought her others just as soon as I was done and read them all in three days, they are that good." ( USA Today best-selling author Quinn Loftis)

Publisher's Summary

Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why it appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend, Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to. The scar is the reason she is being hunted. If only she knew that she was. If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now she is being stalked by a tall, blonde man and is miraculously throwing her high school bully 10 feet in the air. Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar, only he knows what it means and who will kill her because of it. Kiss of Fire is book one of five; it is a clean young adult paranormal romance. Language: low to none. Violence: mild to moderate. Sexual content: low to none.

Good but Wow

What made the experience of listening to Kiss of Fire the most enjoyable?

It was good until the end. The fear overwhelmed the lead character in that she never infused the damn crystal. which I didn't understand. The only part of his soul left is with her.

Would you be willing to try another book from Rebecca Ethington? Why or why not?

Yes and NO!! If their isn't additional books to go with it. then I wouldn't.

Have you listened to any of Eileen Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no not yet.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was made when Joschlin didn't use crystal to help her man. She used it during his TV appearance.

Any additional comments?

A Little girl with too many fear issues and supposed to be powerful. She needs to go all out or go home with all that crying crap. . .

First love is not always your true love.

The Imdalind series is one of the best series I've ever read. This book #1 is a great start but don't judge the series yet based on this first book. It does start a bit slow but picks up about halfway through. So much happens in the later books that this series becomes an epic masterpiece.

Kiss of fire sets up everything. We meet Jocelyn and we meet Ryland her best friend who she secretly loves.

I don't want to spoil anything but I will say things start to get really good when the sexy Ilyan shows up. Move over Ryland, you don't hold a candle to Ilyan.

Each book in the series gets better and better. I urge you to keep reading them. Eyes of Ember is even better and I absolutely adore Scorched Treachery and Soul of Flame.

Slight spoilers...

The epic love story of Jocelyn and Ilyan is one of my favorites and I read a lot of books and ship a lot of couples. Ilyan is one of my favorite book boyfriends of all time. You'll see more in the later books how selfless he is. A true hero and perfect match for Jocelyn.

Awesome series. I can't recommend it enough!

Story is great.
Love story is EPIC
Writing is flawless and beautiful
Narration is also great

If you've read one, you've read them all.

Read the first book. Only okay. Read the second book.... dang, it was a rerun of the first. Same bad guys that never get stopped, never get killed, even though she is the strongest magician in history. It just repeats itself chapter after chapter. This is a love story and they string it out. I finally gave up on the third book deciding that I don't want to punish myself with all seven volumes. Romance is okay but I want a real story that moves forward and unfortunately, this one is not it. If you love romance, it may be for you.

Loved it but hated the ending!

I got.caught up In the story only to come to an abrupt halt at the end when things went to crap. I really hate when that happens. I really don't like it when there is no satisfactory ending. But the story itself was really good.

LOVE IT!!

Kiss of Fire is a wonderful story of love, magic and danger. A girl learns she is more than the freak she thought she was and discovers her greatest love alongside her greatest heartbreak while facing danger that she never knew was lurking around the corners all her life. I highly recommend this for people who are into magic and romance in YA novels.

creative and enthralling

Ethington creates a u Niue but believable world to thrust her introverted, wary Jocelyn into with fascinating characters and a totally swoon-worthy Ryland her best friend who seems to be more involved in the magic and secrets in her life. The story pulled me in, the characters entertained and the narration was well done though I found Ryland voice a bit off putting. Overall a good supernatural YA and with that horrifying ending, I'm onto book 2...
