Hello Hello! How are you?

Today’s post is a quick spotlight for Fireborn by Aisling Fowler, the current book featured on an #UltimateBlogTour by Dave from @The_WriteReads! I am really enjoying this book so far, and I can’t wait to continue it and get my full review up on the 8th of August!

Thank you so much to Dave for letting me take part in this tour, and thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book.

Keep on reading to find out what this enchanting middle-grade fantasy is all about!


Lyra. Lucy. Percy. Once in a generation, a hero emerges whose story enthralls readers worldwide.

Fireborn is an epic quest, perfect for fans of the His Dark Materials and The School for Good and Evil series, that will spin readers into a magical world like no other–and introduce them to an unforgettable new heroine named Twelve.

Ember is full of monsters.

Twelve gave up her name and identity to train in the art of hunting them–so she says. The truth is much more deadly: she trains to take revenge on those who took her family from her.

But when Twelve’s new home is attacked, she’ll find herself on an unexpected journey, where her hidden past is inescapably intertwined with her destiny–and the very fate of her world.


I have only read about 15% into this book as I’m writing this (so I could have read more in the meantime) but so far, I’m already enjoying it. I’m not far enough into the book to say much, but I am already quite immersed in this world. I don’t know fully what is going on, but this world and the characters are very intriguing, and I just want to keep on reading because I want to find out what will happen!

I am already enjoying reading about Twelve, and I think she is going to be a super resilient and amazing character. I also quite like Victory and Seven! The world-building so far is good, and I really like that it’s not at all info-dumpy, it’s just really good

Aisling was born in 1985 and wishes that she had grown up in a magical, mountainous kingdom, but was actually raised in Surrey on a diet of books and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her early ‘adventure’ stories involved surprisingly little action and her first novel (3 pages long) was politely declined by publishers at age 11.

After earning a BSc in Biology and working as a support worker and then a nurse, the idea for her debut novel, Fireborn, came to her as she moved back and forth between London and the US. Now based in Hackney, when she is not reading or writing, Aisling loves cooking and plotting adventures (for herself as well as her fictional characters). Fireborn will be published by HarperCollins in 2021.
