Fierce Creatures by A.W. Hartoin

Matilda Whipplethorn is a fairy kindler.  She can make fire by magic and throw it with her hands.  This marvelous ability scares the people of her world.  Her classmates and their families will not live with her family anymore because she's dangerous.  It makes her very sad...

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours let me read a copy of the ebook of this story.  You can purchase a copy now at any place that has ebooks for sale.

Matilda was learning to be a healer, but her Grandmother died before she got much training.  Even so, she has access to her Grandmother's books and she uses them as a reference source.  When her teacher from school collapses and her lips turn blue while out on a walk, Matilda knows she has a challenge in trying to heal her.  She doesn't give up though.  Not even when she finds out she has to go back to the mall and barter with the same creatures who kidnapped her to get the herb that will help...

I really loved this story.  There are all kinds of fairies, some good and some bad, there are trolls, trees, and a huge variety of make believe creatures.  The mall is a war zone, with one side trying to keep it's ground and the other side trying to take it.  Matilda ends up with two love interests, making it more exciting.  And, the best part?  The story isn't over yet.  I could already see the groundwork being laid for the next novel.

I'm just sorry I missed the first story.  This one is fine read alone, but I think reading them both would better.  Why not buy them both and let me know what you think?  

I'll be watching for the next one.   I really enjoyed my visit in this world.  (The troll is cool, too.) 

The author will award  an ebook copy of either A Fairy's Guide to Disaster or It Started with a Whisper to a commenter at each tour stop, and a grand prize of $25 Amazon GC to one randomly drawn commenter.

Good luck and happy reading!
