Book Blurb

Katriona Wilde has never wondered what it would feel like to have everything she’s ever known and loved ripped away, but she is about to find out.

When she inadvertently leads her sister and best friend through a portal into a world she’s dreamed of for six years, she finds herself faced with more than just the frightening creatures in front of her. Kate’s forced to accept a new truth: her entire life has been a lie, and those closest to her have betrayed her.

Wilde’s Fire is the thrilling first installment of debut author Krystal Wade’s urban fantasy Darkness Falls trilogy, already exciting critics with its intensity and immersive, unique world and concept.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Kate, her sister and her best friend are going to their favorite place for the weekend without their parents. It makes Kate nervous to leave her mother when she is sick.  Her mother never gets sick.  But her step-father assures her everything is fine, and they should go.
They go, and everything is going fine until Kate starts seeing this strange light.  Her sister can see it too.  They track it to their favorite swimming place.  The author then throws them into a different world.  They are instantly attacked, and Kate pushes her sister back through the portal.  Brad is gravely wounded, and they are taken to an underground base.  It is a bit confusing for both character and reader, but Kate learns more as the story progresses.  She comes face to face with the man in her dreams which is shocking to her.  She can’t believe he is real.  She is pulled into this ongoing war as the darkness engulfs the world and she is the savior appointed by the gods to save it.
The author reveals the true story behind her family and who they really are.  Kate must come to terms with this new life and the abilities she is developing.  The dreams seem to be warnings as Arland is her protector.  The story continues as Kate trains and prepares herself.  They also try to find a way back to her mother and sister.  They believe her mother is the only hope of saving Brad’s life and sending him home.  Kate does well coming to terms with who she really is.  Her fears are easy to see but she pushes through them.  Her character is strong and brave.  A great heroine.
The situation with Brad is sad as things get worse.   She must make tough choices.  Then the ending was surprising.  I didn’t see that coming at all.  It sets things up for the next book, but Kate’s challenges are almost impossible to overcome.  I can’t wait to read the next book.  This book is a 4 out of 5.
