Kate's forced to accept a new truth: her entire life has been a lie, and those closest to her have betrayed her. If you love fantasy or the supernatural, I would definitely recommend it.

Usually you can tell you are being prepared for the end, even for a cliffhanger ending. This one kind of just stops. I always know when my interest has been peaked by a book a bit more than usual because all What?
I always know when my interest has been peaked by a book a bit more than usual because all other activities cease and desist. Normally, I might read for an hour, then maybe go online, listen to some tunes, then go back to my book. I don't think this book has left my hands since I picked it up 2 days ago except for maybe working and sleeping. I can't honestly say the book was perfection; hence the four stars not five. But in terms of enjoyment it was way up there.
My main negatives were some slightly stiff and formal dialogue sections.

A bit of repetition in the narrative lots of hand holding, hand grabbing and just a couple of teensy weensy niggly things like that, that as a reviewer I'm supposed to notice and comment on. Well there you go, I commented on them and they didn't really lessen my enjoyment much at all. It's always nice to be shown something different and this book and the world s it's set in are very creative and unusual, which I just love. It's written in first person, present tense, which seems to be becoming an increasingly popular way of writing at the moment.

I remember the first book I read in present tense felt very weird and jarring, but now I'm pretty much used to it and even prefer it in certain circumstances where you don't want your main character to have any clue what's coming. And that fits this book perfectly, because the main character, Katriona Kate Wilde, is literally thrown in at the deep end and then shoved through a magical portal and it's nice to have to figure things out right along with her.
The main themes of the book deal with prophecies, destinies, chosen ones, fated love etc. I know a few people have issues if their lead character comes across as too "special" and there are certainly elements of that in evidence here. But I don't mind it so much. The world that she encounters on the other side of the portal I'm reluctant to say too much about as I want people to discover it for themselves.
But, suffice it to say, they are having a hard time of it, and Katriona may be their only hope. You are Encardia's only hope of surviving this war. But it might have been an idea to have some sort of mini battle to close out this book. I will definitely be reading the next one, and I'm now off to stalk the author about when exactly I'll be getting it! View all 6 comments.
Review: “Wilde’s Fire” by Krystal Wade
Apr 30, Zuleeza rated it it was ok Shelves: arc , dnf. Sadly, my patience grew paper thin and eventually it vanished. Overall, this book sounded very armature-ish. The writing was really choppy and stiff at start but fortunately, it got better afterwards but not enough to pull me into the story. The Iron King anyone? To add to the shame, I found out that the humans in this book did call Arland and his people as elves.
Wilde's Fire (Darkness Falls #1) by Krystal Wade
Katriona is the key to defeat the Darkness, the evil force based on an ancient prophecy. Reminding me a lot of The Fallen Star. Katriona dreamt of Arland even before she actually meet him. Sounded like Beautiful Darkness. I think my favourite was actually the potato. Arland as the supposedly hot, smoldering love interest was stiff as cardboard.
Oh, gosh! Maybe your grandpa to your grandma which is really sweet but for a teenage boy? Moving on to Kate. So, she knew him very well in her dreams but she just met Arland for a few days at that time in real life! If the author thought about fanservice, I suggest she read Kuroshitsuji, this manga would make the idea of having a demonic butler as the love interest to a years old boy seems viable.
Kate dreamed a tragic dream, she woke up, she cried. Kate tried a spell, nothing happened, she gave up. Kate tried to open the portal back, she failed, she got depressed. I mean, there were like few pages dedicated just to convey how helpless and defeated she felt. Luckily, whenever she got emo, she managed to rationalize herself again. But realizing this happened cyclically, I had to given up on this book.
Mar 14, Dawna Raver rated it really liked it. I love this book. Newbie author, Krystal Wade has a winner here! This solid 4 star story has everything: magic, romance, intrigue -- oh, and did I mention sword fights? Written in present tense, first person, Wade's style is a welcome change from many of the books out there. Wade has envisioned a world full of darkness where the only light comes from the hope of the characters and the growing romance between Kate and Arland. The storyline is well thought out and by the end of the story, you' I love this book.
The storyline is well thought out and by the end of the story, you'll be wishing the next book was already out. View all 4 comments. Apr 30, Pam rated it really liked it Shelves: read.
My Thoughts: This was an unexpected gem I found very hard to put down. I really wanted to know what was prompting them.
Was she seeing the future? Was she, sub-consciously, remembering something? Let me preface this by saying I am not a hard-core fantasy fan. However, this was the kind of fantasy I enjoy.
