This will be my first book review on this blog.
I have over three hundred quality reviews on
Writing.com Several reside on my other blogs,
some on HubPages. My job requires me to
research books for our collection, and
recommend for purchase, books for
our library. Net Galley provides e-books of
ARC's hoping for feedback and reviews.
This will be shared to Goodreads, and NetGalley.

Trial By Fire, by Josephine Angelini is a Young Adult (YA) genre book. It would not be kicked out of an Adult section either.
Our patrons love their series writers. When they find a good thing they want it, and they want every edition. "Trial by Fire" is number one of the of the "Worldwalker Trilogy." I am hooked. I want to know what happens with the main protagonist and the main antagonist.
Sibling rivalry, Salem Witches, healers, psychics, and seers. This tale weaves these historical, past residents of Salem, MA., where many women were accused, and punished for the crime of sympathy.
Have you ever experienced Deja Vu?, or had a special connection with another person? Trial by Fire takes us beyond the mere tingling experience of the spirit realm, and dopplegangers, it includes a type of "Butterfly Effect."
We hear about "twin souls," and soul mates. Some people believe that when we meet someone we feel an immediate connection with, that is because we knew them in another life. We get a more fantasy version of this, and the results are thought provoking, and interesting.
I do not write with spoilers, this is a good book, that I cannot help but think about from time to time. There are strong female characters, and some very good looking men to keep things lively, but not too graphic.
I recommended this book for purchase, for our library collection after reading the first chapter.
I do not receive any other benefit for reviewing the ACR copies, than the enjoyment of reading a new book. My reviews are honest and not necessarily the opinion or stance of my employer.
