About the book:
It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.
As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him.
Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life.
Trisha Wolfe the debuting author for Destiny’s Fire took me by surprise with this young adult scifi romance. The BookWhisperer is not your typically scifi reader, but this story blew me away. As a huge fan of independent and courageous females; Dez was a prime example. Along with her friends this story is packed full of wonderful characters; that will keep readers captivated. The only minor criticism that I have for this book was the lack of detail in the first few chapters. Even after completing the story I was unsure of when this story was actually taking place. Once I returned to add a description for this review I realized that it was set in 2040. While this does not hinder the understanding of the story, it did give me pause in the story. For action lovers this is a perfect story, but it is a young adult novel so the violence is a minimum. There again this does not hinder the storyline, but it is noticeable especially when readers find themselves in a war setting. Overall story is exceptionally writing and it uniqueness is apparent in the imaginative story that is delivered. Trisha proves herself here as a talented and creative writer, and leaves me anxious to see what she will have to offer in future novels.
