I've read about Roman and Greek myths and gods, but I've never read anything about Polynesian myths so that idea itself already got my attention. Gods and goddesses reincarnated and living their lives in a high school boarding school is quite a story. Wildefire was intense and hilarious with Karsten's writing.
The most fun I had was reading about all these different gods and goddesses that are associated with Ashline. I think that everyone who have read Wildefire would agree that Ashline is a total badass heroine. She's fierce! Not only is she fierce in battles but also on the tennis court. I wish I could play tennis like Ashline.
For those who are wondering, there's also a guy named Colt that's a park ranger who's kind of charming. Karsten gives us just a bit to get to know Colt but it wasn't enough for me to have an opinion yet.
WARNING! There is a HUGE cliffhanger.
After I got over the cliffhanger to get up, I noticed that I was slightly burnt from reading out in the sun. Karsten thought it was fitting that I got burnt while reading Wildefire. Not cool.
Although I enjoyed the book it took a bit too long for me to get into it. I was tempted to drop the book altogether because it took over 300 pages. But I'm glad that I finished Wildefire.
Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5
