Winter Fire by Lizzy Ford

Winter Fire
By: Lizzy Ford

A beautiful fire witchling with a dangerous secret … A race to save the Light from permanent Darkness … A Dark threat unites with an ancient evil … If the Master of Light, Beck, has learned anything over the past few months, it’s never to trust a pretty girl – or his own judgment, the source of several messes he’s working hard to right. He saved his brother and girlfriend from Darkness but faults himself for not protecting them in the first place, like he’s sworn to. The Light is receding again, and his earth magick warns him that an ancient danger has reemerged in the hands of a beautiful, conflicted girl who’s caught between Light and Dark. Drawn to her beauty and gentle heart, Beck is astonished to learn her magick will do more than set his blood on fire. Like his twin, the Master of Dark, Beck has a counterbalance, a woman who can help him protect the Light – if she doesn’t fall to the Dark like the fire witchlings before her. Hurt too often by bullies in her own life, Morgan tries to protect those around her from similar pain. She and her brother arrive at the boarding school in the Rocky Mountains, only for Morgan to make enemies instantly with Dawn, the Dark witchling who tried to kill Summer twice. But Morgan is hiding something, a source of ancient evil, known as a soul stone, passed down through a thousand years of fire witchlings. Fire repels the coldness of the Dark, and only fire witchlings can safeguard the stone. Taking it into the middle of the source of Light awakens its powers. It finds an ally in Dawn and teaches the Dark witchling how to evade and seek her revenge upon the Masters of Light and Dark. Morgan grabs the soul stone and runs, only to entangle Summer and Biji in her desperate attempt to protect Beck. Hidden from the Masters of Light and Dark, they must find a way to escape Dawn with their lives – and souls.

My Review:

So I just finished Winter Fire, book 3 of The Witchling Series, omg, so lovin’ it!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy book 3 as much as books 1 and 2.  I really got attached to Summer and Decker and didn’t know if I could really get into a book that mainly focused on Beck.  Soooo glad I was wrong! 
I actually enjoyed finding out more about Beck and seeing things from his point of view.   It really changed how I saw him from the first two novels in the series.   I really liked Morgan too.  She has her own issues, just like Summer did, but she handles them in a completely different way.   Summer and Decker were still there, of course, as well as some of the other characters that I’d gotten to meet in the previous books.    I have to say that I really like how Ford reveals various details about some of the supporting characters.  I think it really helps to keep them from feeling flat and gives the story itself more flavor.

I liked this story as well. There were lots more things that got revealed about the Witching world.  For example Witchlings born to two Dark parents aren’t Light when they are born. They are stuck in a sort of magic limbo.  Don’t think this is especially fair, but it still was interesting.  I also liked finding out more about Decker and Becks family. 

I think the ending was similar to the first book, it was definitely a cliffie.  I think maybe the ending of the first book really prepared me for this one though, because I wasn’t as heartbroken for the characters as I had been for Summer and Decker.  Of course there were some seriously different points between the two so that also affected it.  (Trying not to spoil the ending too much)

  I definitely can’t wait to read the fourth book in the series.  If you are looking for a great series to start this summer I highly recommend picking up the Witchlings saga.

I LOVED the first two books in the series also! Dark Summer and Autumn Storm.  Be sure to check out my reviews for Book 1 & Book 2 to find out more!  Also I just love the covers for this series! They are all stunning but this one is especially gorgeous!
