Trial by Fire
By: Josephine Angelini
Release Date: September 2, 2014

"Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns. This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear. Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences. Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected. But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?" (Summary from


  1. Great choice! I've been seeing this one around a lot lately, so it must be pretty good. I Haven't heard a bad thing about it yet, so that's pretty awesome. I also love the cover! I never read Josephine Angellini's Starcrossed series though.

  2. I have an arc of this from the publishers but I'm going to wait a little while longer but I am very much looking forward to reading it. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. I'm really excited to read this book as well! It sounds so good, I love stories which takes place in mythical places, like Salem and I would love to read a welly-written book about witches because recently the ones I read (which weren't many) sucked. Great pick! :)
