Trial by Fire

Josephine Angelini

Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear. 
Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences. 
Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected. 
But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?

i had to review this book even though it's been out quite a while. I've just finished fire walker and i can't wait for the third book!! i love how lily is battling herself (Albeit an alternate version) and how she's fighting lillian's choices. while rowan loved Lillian once before, he's come to believe who he loved was the lily in Lillian, without ever thinking that they were ultimately the same person inside.

Okay so I just finished this and I thought i'd review it right away, even though it's been out a while !
I'm a huge fan of the authors books, I loved her star-crossed trilogy so much, it's one I re-read frequently and my copies look a little battered, so when i saw this i had to read it and I wasn't disappointed!

This book is so original and unique and different, and i loved the concept and premise and everything. I loved the little bits from salem witch trials, like witches being burned at the stake, being twisted so that it's something that helps power a witch rather than kill them, and there's so many little twists on witches that the author has made her own and changed from the standard witch story.

The setting was vivd, and atmospheric, i felt like I was there, the characters where colourful and full of life, i connected to lily instantly and i loved her, i was rooting for her, and she changed over the course of the book.

I loved the different worlds and each being different, and there being different versions, and the whole unique stone thing among other unique aspects, and I keep going on about how unique this is but it really is, i mean seriously, it was totally original and a great twist, the author has made witches her own and i can't wait to read the next book, especially after the ending of this one!

Utterly fantastic, this author will be the death of me, when she kills me with feels! The romance was so totally cute by the way! And it was slow burn and natural! What more could you want?!

Josephine Angelini did it again. This book blew me from the start to the finish. Alternate worlds? Who would have thought of that?

This book is gripping and makes me wonder if there is really such a thing as alternate worlds and if there was, what would I be like if that world? I do recommend this book because as well as being fast paced it has a fantasy elements which makes it much better. Without question I can`t wait for Trial by Tears which comes out next year. Maybe I could time travel to the future and read it before anyone else can….
