Summary: Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Kiss of Fire was a new take on a YA fantasy/ paranormal story and it was a good story at that. I finished it quickly but in saying that, I did find the book a little slow and for that I had to take away one star in the rating. Otherwise this book was great. It contained action, mystery plus a little bit if romance thrown in. Rebecca L. Ethington bombards the read with surprise after surprise after surprise. After an ending like that, I will be picking up book two and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. And I also hope that the speed will pick up in book two.
Joclyn was an ugly duckling turned to a swan character but only by force lol. I really want to see her gain more confidence in the future. I also hope that her father will make another appearance because we barely got an introduction to his story. I also can't wait to see the extent of Joclyn's powers and if she will be able to harness them. Ryland was the best friend but also the keeper of many secrets when it came to Joclyn. But he did it even though it was probably really hard at times. This only goes to show what a loyal friend he is but also a protector. Saying this I really want a book from Ryland's perspective! I also have this sneaking suspicion that Ilyan may get a chance with Joclyn because of certain circumstances.
This is a great YA read. I would recommend it to fantasy and paranormal lovers. I can't wait to see what will happen in book two.
