Fresh Face Friday 7-8-11

Who: Karsten Knight

What: Wildefire

Ashline Wilde never received an instruction manual on how to be a 16-year-old Polynesian volcano goddess. If she had, it might have contained helpful warnings such as:

• Dreaming about your (thankfully) mortal boyfriend may cause your bed to spontaneously combust
• Oven mitts should be worn at all times during heavy make-out sessions

Instead, Ash has to learn these life lessons the hard way as her dormant powers erupt at the most awkward times. In the wake of a hometown tragedy, Ash transfers to Blackwood Academy, a boarding school nestled in California’s redwoods, where a group of fellow gods-on-earth have mysteriously convened. As if sophomore year couldn’t get any worse, her storm goddess older sister, the wild and unpredictable Eve, resurfaces to haunt Ashline. With a war between the gods looming over Blackwood, Ash must master the fire smoldering within her before she clashes with her sister one final time, which leads us to life-lesson #3:
• When warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

Cover: GAW-GEOUS!! (that's the drawn version of's on the dictionary, look it up) When I saw this cover I instantly fell into deep lust with it.

My Thoughts: With Karsten's witty mind and great imagination, I can only imagine how it will translate on paper coming from a 16 year old volcano Goddess!

Stalking Grounds: Facebook, Twitter, Website, Goodreads

Extra: Just a side note, but you HAVE to watch his Vlogs....they are probably some of thee funniest ones I've ever seen.
