"Lush. Delicious. Bewildering. And darkly magical. Popovic has created a world that you tumble into from the very first words and wish you could stay in forever." -Evelyn Skye, author of The Crown's Game"Wicked Like a Wildfire was like devouring a succulent fairy fruit-it will rob your time, settle into your dreams, and leave you starving for more." -Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched QueenFans of Holly Black and Leigh Bardugo will be bewitched by Lana Popovic's debut YA fantasy novel about a bargain that binds the fates-and hearts-of twin sisters to a force larger than life.All the women in Iris and Malina's family have the unique magical ability or "gleam" to manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. But their mother has strict rules to keep their gifts a secret, even in their secluded sea-side town. Iris and Malina are not allowed to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. But when their mother is mysteriously attacked, the sisters will have to unearth the truth behind the quiet lives their mother has built for them. They will discover a wicked curse that haunts their family line-but will they find that the very magic that bonds them together is destined to tear them apart forever?Wicked Like a Wildfire is the first in a two-book series. Readers will be rapt with anticipation for the sequel.

Full of twists and the dark, simmering magic

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 | Review by: Sue H

I found it difficult to get into the story at first, almost as if the weight of the rich, descriptive writing forms a barrier and I was easily distracted. The story sat just beyond the brink, so I could reach out and touch it but not quite able to submerge into the words. The changeover to a dramatic, gripping and mesmerising story was so smooth, I didnít notice until I realised the day had gone while I was buried within the pages. The story is as lyrical as it is melancholy. I love the focus on the complexity of the relationships between the sisters and their mother as well as the secrets, the twists and the dark, simmering magic. Full review: http://crushingcinders.com/wicked-like-wildfire I was voluntarily provided with a complimentary review copy by the publisher.
