As the war between the water gods and fire gods rage on in the forms of their Embodiments, Mac was forced to take on the side of her mother’s, causing her to betray her eternal love Chance. Her destiny still calls for them to be together, but now with her taking on the abilities of her mother’s heritage, things have gotten much more complicated.
Fire Dance is the third book in a young adult fantasy series that follows our heroine, Mac, as she tries to make sense of her mythological background and her place in the war that has broken out between the gods. This series is quite interesting, mixing both dystopian qualities with mythological characters and stories. The characters are interesting, as they have more than one layer to them - both modern and mythological. The mix of genres makes this series unlike anything else out there and definitely breathes new life into young adult fiction. Some things in the story felt a bit cliched - I found myself rolling my eyes at Mac's character from time to time and the romance was a touch syrupy at points. On top of the engrossing plot and well written narrative, the story deals with real issues like family, trust, love, and self discovery - which helps the reader connect even more to the characters and the story itself. Overall, this is an exciting and unique series that has tons of action mixed with romance and mythology. It surpasses genre labels and definitely appeals to lovers of all types of fiction.
