Recommend A ... book by a male author

Wildefire (Wildefire #1) | Karsten Knight

From goodreads: 

Every flame begins with a spark. 

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned.

*** Warning - the rest of the synopsis is a bit of a spoiler!! ***
Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

I read very few books written by male authors. I think I just generally connect better with female protagonists, and those are usually written by, well, females. I've already recommended John Green a couple times, so I thought I'd go with someone different. 

This book has a pretty neat storyline to it. There's a part in it where Karsten tells us the history of all the other major characters in the book. Each person was totally different, and I loved reading about them... I guess it gave a way to connect to them on a deeper level. 

Plus, this book has one of my favorite book covers of all time; I just LOVE it. 


  1. I've heard a lot about this one!! The cover is gorgeous as well :P

  2. I agree that the cover is really cool—so much better than the "pretty dress" covers you see everywhere. I'm not big on mythology type books, but the fact that it's written by a man gets me more interested. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Here's mine.

  3. This has been on my list for quite a while now...I've just not had the chance to read it yet. Thanks for the recommendation!
