Even in a world of freaks, being a Firestarter is considered a dangerous Gift.
Lucy was born with the ability to create and control fire. She longs to leave the human world for one filled with Earthshakers, Transporters, and Chameleons, to name a few. When she rejoins the circus, it’s everything she hoped it could be—new friends, a potential love interest or two, and a place where she can be herself.
When troupe members begin turning up dead, however, Lucy is suspected of foul play. She must not only prove her innocence but also realize the full extent of her power. To find the real murderer, she must uncover the truth behind her father’s fiery legacy while figuring out whom to trust within her new circle. Little does she know the history of the Donovan Circus and its enemies might actually destroy the entire gifted world.
This is my first time picking up a book centered around a circus theme. They say there’s a first time for everything and this book definitely started things off on the right note! Could there be more circus themed books in this book readers future? Most likely!
I really enjoyed the read. The Donovan Circus and the ever so intriguing group of gifted characters within it definitely made for an interesting read. The book starts off quick. It puts the reader right into the action head on, and throws you an ending with just that, MORE ACTION! Always a good thing if you ask me! ;)
The bits of romance and hints of a possible love triangle definitely kept me turning pages! This book reader likes to pick sides and Gifted totally didn’t make that easy! I’m still not sure what side I’m on! The mystery kept me second guessing everything and everyone all the way till the end.
Loved the circus. Loved the mystery. Totally loved the book. Four stars from me!
