Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman’s life is a perfectly normal one until Logan Schmidt moves to Ashlan Falls. Cara is inexplicably drawn to him, but she’s not exactly complaining. Logan’s like no boy she’s ever met, and he brings out a side of Cara that she isn’t used to. As the two get closer, everything is nearly perfect, and Cara looks forward to the future.

But Cara isn’t a normal girl. She’s a member of a small group of people descended from the mythical phoenix bird, and her time is running out. Rebirth is nearing, which means she’ll forget her life up to this point—she’ll forget Logan and everything they mean to one another.. But that may be the least of Cara’s problems.

A phoenix hunter is on the loose, and he’s determined to put an end to the lives of people like Cara and her family, once and for all.


Ok, I will admit, when I read the first paragraph of the blurb I was thinking “Oh no, not again.” It seemed like countless other YA books out there. I continue on, and I read “She’s a member of a small group of people descended from the mythical phoenix bird” ... Hang on a minute ... She’s a phoenix?! #interestrenewed!

I’m hoping Into the Fire is more about the second half of the blurb, rather than the first. If it is, it should be really good! *fingers crossed*


What are you waiting on this week?

  10. I did the same thing as you - the first paragraph sounds like it's just another carbon copy of all the other YA. But give me a book about people descended from a phoenix and I am hooked. Great pick. Am adding this to goodreads now. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    1. Yes! If I had clicked away after reading the first paragraph, I would have dismissed it and overlooked it if I came across it again. Hopefully it lives up to the second half of the blurb, and how awesome the phoenix myth is! Thanks for stopping by :)
