    Lily s body ran hot about 102 degrees on a normal day On a bad day, her fever could shoot up as high as 111 degrees.Well, it didn t make me want to kill myself.In the interest of transparency, I m going to tell you guys up front I m seriously fucking drunk right now.It s 1 30 AM on Sunday morning, I ve spent the entire evening out I ve drank half a bottle of Riesling and I m just making inroads into a bottle of gin This isn t going to be one of my better reviews, because, hello, I m typing it on [...]

    There comes a day when every girl loses the stars in her eyes And then she can see clearly.This is Lily s day Believe me when I say This is not Lily s day Lily is not losing any bloody stars from her eyes anytime soon In fact, I would say the stars breed, multiply and become a damn constellation by the time this book is finished There s a love triangle, insta angst and a whole lot of general stupidity to look forward to along the way.Please could someone tell me how a girl like Lily, who is so s [...]

    3.5 stars Let s talk about originality this book has it Nowadays, in my opinion, finding gems in new YA series featuring witches is pretty hard since they are sometimes so predictable as in a lot has already been done and we ve pretty much seen it all They rarely contain new secrets for you us discover.Yet, Josephine Angelini nailed the paranormal aspects Creativity, this story is filled with it And imagination The author was probably born with it as a middle name.One interesting element was see [...]

    4.5 stars I enjoyed this so so so so much Read in one sitting, with barely any time to breathe Review to come.

    Whoa Having had no luck with witch books lately this was a nice surprise It s unique and well written, with a quick pacing that turned it into an unputdownable read.Trial by Fire starts with the introduction of Lily, a sickly girl who has had a rough life of weakness and fevers I knew right then that this was going to be a great read This girl was funny, awkward, easy to connect to, and with a compelling narrative voice Plus you just knew this constant sickness was something witchy and had you c [...]

    I adore books that involve witches but I m always hesitant when I pick up a new one because it s either a hit or a miss Well holy cow, this was most definitely a hit I absolutely freaking loved everything about this book The concept was so original and unlike any book I ve read about witches before I was drawn in right from the beginning and although I did find it a tad slow to start with, I loved the world building and the characters and the detail that went into this book I couldn t turn the p [...]

    The flames rise, and I twist and scream, trying to get away, but the iron shackles on my wrist keep me bound to this stake I m a witch And witches burn.I was looking for a book about good old witches for a long time, and this one rocked my world This is the story about Lily At the beginning we see her as a normal girl who has a hard life, being allergic and having a bit crazy mom She s in love with her best friend who finally started to notice her in a romantic way Soon she won t be able to go t [...]

    29 June 2015 2.99 on KindleI requested this book because WITCHES SALEM WITCHES It beckons to me like a siren in the sea I can t resist I can t fight So, I didn t even bother I d never read Josephine Angelini before and I had no idea what to expect I hoped the book would be good, but I wasn t about to let my expectations get too high I ve been burned before.And then I met Lily Lily of the horrible allergies, unpopular at school yet comfortable mostly in her own skin She s confident and sure of he [...]

    Review also posted at Young Adult Hollywood.I think my life would be a much better place if books could just stay as their enticing, shinny, gorgeous prose Josephine Angelini s Starcrossed Trilogy is one of my favorite Young Adult series It was relatively easy to get lost into that world despite it s flaws I was so ready to liked Trial by Fire I have quite a few reasons why to like it.A I m a huge fan of witches I love witches, especially anything that got to do with Salem.B ALTERNATE UNIVERSE D [...]

    I m a witch and witches burn Ugh Honestly, I m a big fan of Josephine Angelini s Starcrossed series these books are awesome But this To be honest, it is huge disappointment.The first few pages are alright You get introduced to the characters and learn a lot about the main character s life It looked promising.But then Lily, the protagonist, gets absorbed into this parallel universe and the storyline slowly grows dull and duller I just wasn t interested in this fantasy world at all The romantic lo [...]

    Trial by Fire has the potential to be not just a good read but one of the best urban fantasy read for me given its unique premise and unpredictable plot, if only it has a better execution Heat builds around me, and the fire begins to eat into my flesh Yes, fire has teeth, and it chews at you like a living, breathing animal It even roars like an animal When you are in its mouth, you have to fight for air Fire, like a lion, likes to suffocate its prey When I started this book, I was having a hard [...]

    3.5 starsSo what s this one about Witches, alternate realities,and allergies.So It s got an interesting premise, no It starts out in our world, with Lily struggling to find some amount of normalcy in her life Absentee father, schizophrenic mother, and she s got something seriously wrong with her immune system.The only bright spots in her life are her sister, Juliet, and her one friend, Tristan Her longtime secret love for Tristan has finally been reciprocated, and he s taking her to a party Her [...]

    What a mess of a book.The premise is definitely interesting but I had a lot of problems with the story and the writing First of all,I m not a fan of writing from the third person point of view because I can t completely connect with the characters and that s exactly what happened here it s not that I just couldn t connect with Lilly and Lillian,it s that I literally didn t care about them They could ve both died and I wouldn t even flinch Same goes for the supporting characters except for Juliet [...]

    To read the full review, CLICK ME Funny how quickly the mind moves, but how slowly time does when you re in pain Whilst the fantasy and magical elements were incredibly well executed, I found myself confounded by Lily I couldn t buy into her innocent goody two shoes personality and then her quick, immediate switch to badass witch wielding powerful magic like a baton It was too sudden and very hard to get used to I wanted Lily to grow into her magic and feel the power before turning into a machin [...]

    blog 20 Sep 14 pssst for a better, tidy version of this review, read it on my blog.I ve been in a blogging rut recently, so to try and rekindle my blogging spirit I ve decided to combine two of my most favourite passtimes reviewing and simming I tried to get all the main characters right based on descriptions in the book but it s quite possible I may have missed or got some things wrong If you do notice any mistakes on my part, do let me know The Sims game I used to make this review is TS3 If y [...]


    Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    Although it has a firm connection to our world, Trial by Fire could very well be considered a fantasy novel The worldbuilding isn t particularly elaborate, but it serves the story very well, and it will probably expand in the next two installments, although I don t really feel that there s too much to add While simple, Lillian s world as opposed to Lily s world, which is also ours is perfectly functional and developed just enough to carry the story easily.Lily is exactly the type of heroine that [...]

    I don t know what I was expecting from this book but I was left a little underwhelmed That might because I went in to this book knowing nothing, confident that I was going to be reading fantasy, but the first 40 pages were contemporary I was confused and weirded out I think it would have worked out better if I knew from that start that this book had alternate universe plot.I didn t like the characters at all in the beginning Lily was willing to risk her life I m not even kidding just so she coul [...]

    4.5 One of the things I love most about this book is how intricate this world is It mixes together magic and science, but yet it almost appears medieval I also love how in depth the explanations go with how the world works I found it extremely fascinating and unique Also very interesting were the parallels to our world There are some things we have in our world that this world has never heard of, and a lot of our science discoveries are explained through magic in this new Salem.As someone who is [...]

    WHY IS SHE JABBING HERSELF WITH AN EPI PEN FOR HIVES what is this mess I can t even handle how messed up all of the depictions of her allergies are It didn t get much better from there


    Giselle (Book Nerd Canada)

    Lily is allergic to a lot of things, weak and constantly sickened by her allergies, her bright spot in life is her best friend Tristan Taking her to her first house party, he abandons her for some other girl and she ends up having a seizure from a drink filled with alcohol As the alcohol threatens her weak body, she finds herself transported into another world Except this world, there s another Lily who is the most powerful witch in the universe She finds herself allying with another version of [...]


    Cait (Paper Fury)

    I literally have only good things to tell you about this book How s that It s absolutely crazy, right There s a few things I may or may not whinge about, but they re all so microscopic and variableft Don t even listen to me Just drop everything and go read this now Unless, of course, you re carrying something precious like a small child or chocolate cake Then don t drop everything right away It s basically a evilly delicious tale about magic, jumping through multiple worlds, science, fire, and t [...]

    Bellissimo Un libro dove magia e fisica si uniscono, un modo di parlare di stregoneria totalmente nuovo ed originale.Mi piaciuta Lily, la protagonista, ed ho apprezzato anche molti personaggi secondari Non vedo l ora di leggere i seguiti


    Sarah

    Buddy read with AngeI have to confess that I wasn t really too sure what to expect from Trial by Fire, I hadn t heard a great deal about it before I started reading but the shiny foil cover caught my eye and when I realised it was about witches and alternate realities I couldn t resist I m so glad I took a chance because this turned out to be one of my favourite YA reads of the year There is just so much to love about this book and once I d started reading I didn t want to stop.Lily is such a fa [...]


    Rashika (is tired)

    Trial by Fire was exactly as I had hoped it would be but That sounds a little contradictory, doesn t it I suppose the best way to explain it is that I knew I would love this book but I had no idea how much Angelini never fails to surprise me.I remember when I first read Starcrossed and now, reading the first book in her new trilogy, I feel the same way as I felt then I feel that excitement I feel the thrill I feel everything Yet at the same time, it s obvious how much she has grown as a writer [...]


    Luke

    I m first to click Want To Read it I loved the Starcrossed trilogy The premise for Trial By Fire sounds equally intriguing Witches, like Greek Mythology, has always fascinated me I know Josephine Angelini will grip me for another exhilarating, intricate journey And she did And I am so wanting Lily and Rowan together And I really, really need to the next one immediately

    Actual rating 4.5 It s been awhile since I wrote a proper review so this might be unorganized and rusty, just bear with me Lilly Proctor is allergic to a lot of things and is always sick which makes it nearly impossible for her to live a normal life So when she gets an opportunity to go to her first and possibly her last high school party with her best friend and crush Tristan, she take it But things don t go the way she expected and after a humiliating experience, Lily wishes to disappear from [...]


    Kelly (Diva Booknerd)

    Trial By Fire was a wonderful blend of fantasy with the element of atmospheric interdimensional travel, driven by an intense romance and the plight of one girl to save a world that is not her own Lily was a sickly child, often hospitalised with severe allergies and a constant fever in which she was ostracised by her peers All except Tristan For Lily, their friendship consists of watching Tristan s female conquests while seeing her peers enjoy the life Lily so desperately covets Until the paramet [...]

    To see full review click hereIf you read my reviews you know I m not a huge fan of Josephine Angelini Mainly because the Starcrossed trilogy was a God awful shitty series However, the premises of Trial by Fire pulled me in enough where I had to read it note, I had a bottle of wine nearby the entire time for sanity purposes.The result well, it s like a better version of Starcrossed with some horrible moments and prose that on Angelini can grace us with.Let me just warn you, if you want to read th [...]

    DNF at 56%I started reading this in July and then completely forgot about it It wasn t necessarilyreally bad, but it did a quite successful job at putting me to sleep And I honestly don t care about the story or the characters enough to keep going.
