Ignite Excerpts

Prologue

Kira watched as he languidly stood up, flexing his muscles as though he had just awakened from a long dream. He stretched his arms over his head and cracked the bones in his neck before finally settling his gaze on her. She hardly recognized him, the boy she had fallen in love with. Where minutes before there had been light and emotion in his eyes, there was only a black hole, a seemingly endless abyss. Kira had never seen him look at her that way, like less than food, like vermin, even since the first time they had met.
"Aren’t you going to run?" He asked with sinister humor coloring his words. The smirk on his face may as well have been a knife cutting through her heart. The darkness had always called him, but Kira had always thought that being with her would be enough to keep him from crossing over. She saw now that he had surrendered to his nature and for the first time she felt real fear when he looked at her.
Kira stepped backwards on shaky feet, trying to digest the question. She didn’t have an answer. How could she turn her back on him and run away? The man she loved was trying to kill her. There were no options. Could she forget it all—all the nights they had shared kissing and swapping secrets—and fight to kill? Or, would she run and admit that there was no hope that he would return to her?
Kira said his name and reached out her hand, searching one last time for the man she had lost.
"Yes, honey." The word hit her like a slap in the face as it rolled off of his tongue drenched in sarcasm.
Kira looked up at the sun, still hidden behind the shadow of the moon, and sprinted into the tree line behind her. She couldn’t give up on him now. But, when the eclipse was over, maybe she would finally find the strength to fight.




First Chapter Excerpt


Finally, she looked at the guy Luke had called Tristan. He seemed different to her somehow, with jet-black hair that hung over his eyes a little, and barely visible dimples that played on his cheeks. His eyes were also an icy blue, but they seemed deeper to her, like steep ravines she could fall into. He stayed out of the conversation, she noticed, as if lost in his own thoughts—ones that seemed more troublesome than the cutting remarks being doled out by his friends. He had a rebel without a cause look that made him perilous for a girl’s heart.
Suddenly, he turned to Kira and his eyes seemed to brighten a shade when they landed on hers. He stared, and Kira, who was never one to back down, returned his look with interest.
"Who are you?" He asked in a barely audible voice filled with surprise, one just loud enough to attract the attention of his friends and Luke. Kira melted at the sound. He was dangerous she knew, but something about him made her feel safe and afraid at the same time.
"Kira," was all she could respond with. They both looked at each other, trying to unlock the other’s secrets.
His friends came to circle her now and she felt cornered. Fear sparked in her heart, like a quick flash of lightning. She didn’t quite understand it, but she also couldn’t shake it.
"Well, what have we here?" Diana leaned in to really look at her and Kira thought she could read shock on the girl’s face, despite the confidence in her voice. Tristan laid a hand on Diana’s arm, almost like a warning, Kira thought.
"Diana, back off," Luke said and tried to come to Kira’s rescue, but it was Mr. Bell who saved her by running into the classroom very late and very out of breath.


Mid-Book Excerpt:

"Kira, come on," she heard the command in his deep voice, but couldn't respond. "Kira, wake up." A hand slapped her in the face, once, twice, a third time and then her eyes shot open and she tried to breathe, but her throat was stuck. Someone flipped her to her side as she began coughing, and finally she spit up what seemed like a gallon of water. Kira laid down again and closed her eyes, wanting to sleep.
"Kira!" She felt one more smack on her face. "You have to stay awake." She opened her eyes and saw the blurry outline of a boy with dark hair and pale skin.
"Tristan?"
"Hello," she saw the corner of his mouth curve upwards despite her uneasy vision.
"What happened?"
"You were being stupid." She started to remember the wave and wipeout, and then her anger brimmed back to the surface.
"Only because you were being an ass," she grumbled and he laughed.
"Come on, try to sit up." Tristan curved an arm around her back to help lift her up. She noticed, at that moment, that they both wore only bathing suits and she was basically sitting on his lap. Kira tried to discreetly look at his chest, which was quite chiseled, and then she noticed the nice bulge of a bicep in his arm. Kira let her eyes wander a few moments longer until Tristan picked her up far enough for the pain in her head to finally hit. She groaned, put a hand to her head and curled into his body a little more.
"Ow."
"Yeah, your board got you pretty bad."
"I know." Kira was starting to get annoyed by his habit of stating the obvious. She pulled her hand back for a moment. "Crap! I’m bleeding." He stared at her hand, which was covered in running red liquid, until she put it back to her head. Kira noticed he was staring again, but this time at her wound. She felt him lean in closer, inspecting it she hoped. After a minute, she couldn’t take it.
"Tristan, tell it to me straight. How bad is it?" She felt him jerk as if she had interrupted him mid-thought.
"Oh. It’s nothing. You’ll be fine. Might need a few stitches." He sat her up on her own and moved back a foot.
"Thanks…for helping me, I mean." She looked at Tristan, saw a few different emotions pass over his face until he finally settled on the half-smile she had started to like. Tristan grabbed a shirt from the unguarded towel next to him, looked at it, looked at Kira, and shrugged. He put it to her head, told her to hold it there, and helped her stand up.
"Get away from her." Luke’s voice boomed from behind her. He came barging in and pushed Kira to the side.
"Chill out, Luke. I didn’t do anything."
"I don’t care. Leave." Kira had never heard such anger in Luke’s voice.
"And if I don’t want to," Tristan asked. Kira knew he was saying it more to test Luke and less because he really needed to stay.
"Then," Luke paused, clenched his fists, looked around, and punched Tristan in the face. For a moment Kira thought she saw a flashing light, but she quickly realized it must have been the sun, which had previously been silhouetted behind the two boys. Tristan fell over and rolled once on the ground.
"Luke! Stop it. He just saved my life."
"Come on, Kira," Luke tugged her hand. She glanced back at Tristan, who just nodded to her, and followed Luke. "We have to take you to the hospital." She didn’t mention the punch, wanting to wait for a good time. Instead she went with her friends back to the car, listened to them talk about trivial things to distract her, allowed Luke to carry her into the hospital, and tried to process the thoughts churning in her head.

Review:

Ignite
Kira Dawson has moved to South Carolina, everything is new to her there, friends, school, and experiences.  Kira quickly befriends Luke Bowrey who becomes her closest friend and warns her against Tristan and his brood of trouble, but is unwilling to say why.  Although Kira tries to heed Luke’s warning, she can’t stop herself from wanting to know more about the mysterious Tristan.  What Kira discovers is she is part of the Conduit of Sunlight, a protector to humans against vampires and Tristan is one of the enemy.  Kira feels deep in her heart that there is something special about Tristan, will Kira put her trust in someone who could end up being the death or her or will she be his salvation?

Simmer
Kira continues her relationship with Tristan, while realizing that her friendship of Luke is slightly fractured when his feelings for her are revealed.  Feeling like she is having losing her best friend, Kira focuses on her training and begins to realize her gift as a conduit is unparalled and that Luke seems to be her anchor.  Kira finds herself embroiled in a vampire attack and following  a lead in finding her mother, who others believe is dead.

Blaze
Knowing what she has to do, Kira makes a choice that ends up betraying one and following another.  Wanting to find the answers about who she is and what really happened to her mother.  Kira finds that everything she was hoping for may not be possible and that treachery is running rampant and in order to survive she may end up hurting those that mean the most to her.

Exciting series.  Kira is a bit unpredictable and often makes choices on impulse sometimes getting unexpected results.  Tristan is the broody vampire who looks at Kira with hopes of a future, even though she will age and he will not.  Luke the trusty friend who secretly believes Kira is the one for him, he is a true gentleman though as he waits on the sidelines hoping to get a chance to win Kira over.  This has been an excellent series thus far, I found myself frequently unable to put the stories down as Kira begins to discover more about herself and what she is.  Cannot wait until the final installment.
