"Fire in the Blood" is a nice little fantasy adventure.
I think the second half of the book is much stronger than the first half. The first half is slow. When Haley ends up in the next world she doesn't know where Tuggin is taking her, what he wants, or anything. And she doesn't ask. She doesn't ask him or the other people she meets, and this is a consistent problem through most of the book.
I'd say the second problem is that Haley's sole connection to the male characters throughout the majority of the book is that she finds them attractive, and that is repeated over and over again. It would have been fine to mention her attraction to either of them about a third or a fourth of the time she did, but the book gets overloaded with her telling the reader how hot they are. Throughout the first half of the book many paragraphs can be summed up as, "Tuggin is hot. But he's a jerk."
The other parts work much better. I liked the descriptions for the water and air eyids. The action picks up after she breaks away from Tuggin and takes her own path. Although I was confused by the path she took (even if she didn't want to be caught by someone else, I would think she'd still hesitate to choose the "fiery desert death trap" path) it did get more exciting at the end.
I think a good editor could clean up a lot of the repetitive parts and strengthen other parts really well. For example:

The writing style is fun, colorful, and pulls you in. I often judge a book by how quickly I read it (because if I like it, I read it every opportunity I get), and I finished this one in a few days. When the next book comes out, I will definitely pick it up!
