Prologue

Rita had never been in the back of a police car before and hoped she never would have to be again. It was stuffy, hot and smelled of something weird but that wasn’t the worst of it. Outside of the police car and being lifted into the back of an ambulance was her little cousin, blackened from the fire.

She wanted to curse and shout. Bang her fists against the window but she also wanted to cry.

It was all Kevin’s fault for being a bloody idiot and getting her into this mess. Yet as the sirens started to whir and the ambulance doors banged shut she found the thoughts clogging in her throat. She watched with dread as her cousin was driven away past the surrounding policemen and women who didn't seem to know what to do with themselves. Rita blinked slowly, trying to get the sting out of her eyes and then the car door opened and a young policeman stooped down to look at her.

“You okay Miss Teal?” He asked gently. “I got you a cuppa.” He pressed a polystyrene cup into her hand.

She nodded mutely, feeling that it would be impossible to speak without spilling her guts onto the car floor. She was far from okay, okay seemed to be sailing quickly away and had no hopes of coming back.

“I’m going to have t’ take you down to the station, just t' clear some things and we’ve called your ma and da. They’ll be coming to pick you up as soon as they can.” He tried a reassuring smile then closed the door and moved into the driver’s seat and she stared at the back of his head.

What the hell was she going to tell them?!

That part of the explosion had been her fault? That she had set most of the trees on fire herself? That…that she had walked through fire itself to grab the boys and Kevin and hadn’t come to an inch of harm.

How could she tell them that she, Rita Teal, could control fire and didn’t have the foggiest idea why or how?

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

LeahWrites: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining.
