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.
Review: Firespell was an interesting book. The more I read it the more I was interested, it kind of had a little element of mystery and I really love mystery so I wanted to keep reading to know more. Some of the little mysteries within the book were solved in this book but others weren't and no doubt will be answered in the next book.
I liked Lily, as far as main characters go she rocked. She had attitude and she wasn't weak, she was very independent and so it was really refreshing to have a kick-butt main character.
As for the paranormal aspect of Firespell, it was there but there wasn't too much. Which is understandable because it is the first book in the series so it is setting the scene.
Overall, I really enjoyed Firespell, there was so much that made the book so enjoyable. There were awesome characters, the story line was really interesting and there was an element of mystery which just makes the book so much more cooler.
I definitely cannot wait for the next book in the series because Firespell is an awesome read.
