This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying experiences that others in her hometown of Salem take for granted, which is why she is determined to enjoy her first high school party with her best friend and longtime crush, Tristan. But after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class, Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly, Lily is in a different Salem—one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruelest of them all is Lillian . . . Lily's other self in this alternate universe.

What makes Lily weak at home is what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. In this confusing world, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone and a love she never expected. 



Breathtaking. A masterpiece.

As you already know, I’m a big fan of books that has to do with witches and magic. Trial By Fire wasn’t what I had expected it to be, it turned to be more enjoyable than I thought it would be. There were witches, love, friendship, betrayal and that’s everything that I love about books. Trial By Fire a book that keeps your attention till the end, and even then you will find yourself craving for me. After an ending like that, how can I not? It had me wishing that the next book was out so that I can see what happens next. Even now I find myself thinking about Lily’s next adventure. What happens to her next? What dangers, adventures will come her way. I’m not sure if I can wait till September to find out. I will be counting the days till Trail Of Tears is out. A book that you find going on adventure along with her friends. Not only that but I could picture everything that was happing to each one of them. To me, their every single adventure, struggle felt real. I didn’t want put the book down. The more story progressed, more I was pulled into the story, into their magical and dangerous world.

If I had to pick, I would pick Rowan over Tristan any day. Even if Tristan in other world was different from Lily’s world, there was something about Rowan, the connection between the two of them. Tristan in her world, I couldn’t stand. He was too controlling, I just wish that Lily would see for who he was, before it was too late. I am curious to see what happens between Tristan and Lily when she returns, would things be same between them? I am also curious how long she been gone. If it would affect it somehow. After watching what happened between Rowan and Lily, way the two of them seemed to affect each other. It was nothing like Tristan and Lily had, it seemed like they had no connection between the two of them. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what Lily saw in him. Rowan, there was a real chemistry between the two of them, all through book I hoped for them get together. The last scene between the two of them was heartbreaking. I hope that two of them will find a way back to each other.

I have read couple books by Josephine before, her Starcrossed series. Couple years have passed since I have and now I know why I fell in love with her writing when I first came across. I love fact that her books aren’t just about romance, but it has a lot action involved in it. Trial By Fire isn’t any different, actually it had more of suspense and action than it did romance. Every page had me on edge of my seat, had me wondering what is going happen next. An author that engages you in the character’s adventures. I could actually feel being there along with them. I already know that it’s going be one author I am going to love. I am aleready looking forward to the next book in series.

If you love witches, suspense, Trial By Fire is unlike any book about witches. You will find yourself to put the book down till you reach end. Even afterwards you will find yourself thinking about. A must read series.
