When a girl meets a boy and they fall in love, life should be beautiful, right? Well, not always. What if the girl loving the boy might result in her killing him? She wouldn’t do it intentionally, but accidents can happen, especially if the girl is a Phoenix.

Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman from INTO THE FIRE, YA fantasy, by Author Kelly Hashway AKA Ashelyn Drake is a Phoenix. On her eighteenth birthday, in just one month, she will die and be reborn. Her sixteen-year-old brother, Jeremy, is going through the change already. This is what a Phoenix does. After her new birth, Cara will remember no one except others of her kind. This is her life. She accepts it, but she doesn’t count on meeting the new boy in town and imprinting on him, which means she can’t stay away from him and she could accidentally kill him with fire. Yeah, talk about a hot girl, that’s Cara, in more ways than one. To make matters even worse, if that were possible, Logan, her crush, could be a Hunter. Hunters do what their name says. They hunt Phoenixes and it’s not a pretty sight when they catch them. To keep from giving away the plot, that’s all I’ll say.

Told from both Cara’s and Logan’s points-of-view, the reader sees the story from the emotions of each main character, which I like. The story also has the normal teen angst of wanting to be together, madly in love as teens can be. This is the first book I’ve read about the Phoenix. Interesting characters. INTO THE FIRE has a bit of everything: love, murder, suspense, and a family just trying to survive. And now I’m waiting for the next book to see what happens between the young lovers. ( )
