Description

A Must Read Romance. This is one of the best books I've read this year. It has everything a book should have: action, adventure, violence, a butt-kicking heroine and one hot hero. --USA Today This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies make it increasingly difficult to live a normal life, and after a completely humiliating incident ruins her first (and perhaps only) real party, she's ready to disappear. Suddenly, Lily finds herself in a different Salem. One overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women--including Lillian, this world's version of Lily. What made Lily weak at home, makes her extraordinary here. It also puts her in terrible danger. Faced with new responsibilities she can barely understand and a love she never expected, Lily is left with one question: How can she be the savior of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy? Set in a world of witches, magic, and romance, Trial by Fire by internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini is the first book of the young adult fantasy Worldwalker Trilogy. "Angelini's latest series opener combines the best elements of a magical fantasy with hints of sci-fi, history, and romance." -School Library Journal "A compelling, intricate world, a swoony romance, and a memorable cast make this one a blazing success." -The Bulletin

Review quote

"A Must Read Romance. This is one of the best books I've read this year. It has everything a book should have: action, adventure, violence, a butt-kicking heroine and one hot hero." --USA Today, Happily Ever After "Angelini creates an escapist fantasy infused with magic and romance, while taking up themes of science gone wrong and humans' endangerment of the world and their environment. The ways in which the two worlds mirror one another provide emotional resonance and fascinating possibilities for subsequent books in the Worldwalker trilogy." --Publishers Weekly "The likable Lily is guided by strong convictions, and a startling conclusion will have readers anticipating the next chapter in the Worldwalker trilogy." --Booklist "Readers will be swept into the inner workings of crucibles and witches and left eager for more . . . a richly drawn world of keenly devised magic." --Kirkus Reviews "Angelini's latest series opener combines the best elements of a magical fantasy with hints of sci-fi, history, and romance." --School Library Journal "A compelling, intricate world, a swoony romance, and a memorable cast make this one a blazing success." --BCCB
