Title: Firespell

Author: Chloe Neill

Published: Signet, 2010

Pages: 256

Series: Dark Elite, Book One

Summary: As the new girl at the elite St. Sophia’s boarding school, Lily Parker thinks her classmates are the most monstrous things she’ll have to face… 
When Lily’s guardians decided to send her away to a fancy boarding school in Chicago, she was shocked. So was St. Sophia’s. Lily’s ultra-rich brat pack classmates think Lily should be the punchline to every joke, and on top of that, she’s hearing strange noises and seeing bizarre things in the shadows of the creepy building. 
The only thing keeping her sane is her roommate, Scout, but even Scout’s a little weird—she keeps disappearing late at night and won’t tell Lily where she’s been. But when a prank leaves Lily trapped in the catacombs beneath the school, Lily finds Scout running from a real monster. 
Scout’s a member of a splinter group of rebel teens with unique magical talents, who’ve sworn to protect the city against demons, vampires, and Reapers, magic users who’ve been corrupted by their power. And when Lily finds herself in the line of a firespell, Scout tells her the truth about her secret life, even though Lily has no powers of her own—at least none that she’s discovered yet…

Review:  Firspell is such a great book!!!! Definitely worth four exclamation points in my view. However, I just have one little teeny annoyance and that is that I thought it spent a little too much time getting settled into the school but once that was over this book was so cool.
Lily is an awesome character and I totally can't wait to see more of her, Firespell being the first in a series. Yay.
I'm not overly a paranormal fanatic but on occassion I'll pick up a paranormal themed book and I like some of them. I'm glad to say that I loved Firespell. It wasn't too over the top with the paranormal theme.
If you're a fan of the paranormal then Firespell is definitely your book!

Today I am super excited to announce to you that. The very generous and kind Chloe Neill has generously offered up a fantastic prize pack with a signed copy of Firespell, Firespell Bookmark, Friday Night Bites Postcard, I Heart Cadogan Bumper Sticker, and a St. Sophia's Magnet.
