WILDEFIRE by KARSTEN KNIGHT
Every flame begins with a spark.
Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.
I just finished having a bit of fun in the Wildefire release Twitter Party. It was an amazing chat. A lot of questions were answered (a couple of mine!) and we got to know a little bit more about Karsten Knight, the author. If you've never heard of him, or watched any of his vlogs, then you are definitely missing out! He's a really great guy and I'm sure his work will be just as great (unfortunately, I have yet to read Wildefire. Hopefully soon!) So I just want to say congratulations to Karsten and to everyone else, go buy the book!
And congrats to the two winners of the Twitter party giveaways!
MY QUESTIONS THAT WERE ANSWERED:How did you come up with the name(s) for your characters?
Fun fact about names--Ashline Wilde's name was originally Amanda Marsh. Not a very volcano goddess friendly name.
If Wildefire was made into a movie, who would you choose to play the main characters?
I would love for Taylor Lautner to play the role of Colt Halliday. Great actor, and Colt is a Native American role.
