I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a non-reciprocal review.
(This review will contain spoilers).

"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:

(Slightly changed to take out stuttering and such).
"Some have killed for it, betrayed for it. Some have even broken their promises.

This book starts off running and never stops! It's packed full of action. From start to finish, there's hardly any down time. I gave "Fire in the Blood" four stars instead of five because while I like a lot of action, some of it felt abrupt, and I would have loved the scenes fleshed out a little.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing and Fun Read 20 Aug. 2012
By Danielle C. Smiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While reading Fire in the Blood, my rating of it fluctuated between 3 and 4 stars, finding it pretty much settled into a 3.75 by the end. This is really an amazing and fun read, but it does have some rough spots that need addressing.

So what did I love? The beautiful and creative world Ms. Ibitz creates in Fire in the Blood is simply outstanding. Eyidora is so unique!!! I love the premise of the book, the use of element-based gods and the twist on global climate change. It's fast paced with crazy suspense and action. Poor Haley seems not to have anyone she can trust! There's a solid plot with enough resolution to feel satisfied but still hungry for the sequel. And I do eagerly await the sequel.

My only complaint is with the characters needing to be fleshed out more. Haley's "teen speak" is a bit over the top and she seems shallow and whinny at points. She's still a fairly likable character and shows some growth throughout, but these issues did hurt the book. Then there's Tuggin, that snarky guy who might have a heart of gold. However he's a bit too snarky to be sexy and comes off just hateful at times. This results in Haley seeming shallow or even a bit neurotic for being so into him. I understand where the author was going with Tuggin, but she missed her mark a bit here. With Ian, I'm missing his back story in order to understand his motivation. That back story may be lurking in a future book, so on him, I withhold judgment.

I have complete faith that as this series continues and as our author hits her stride, these issues will resolve themselves and I so look forward to reading the rest of this story. This is definitely one you'll want to pick up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious YA Fantasy 21 July 2011
By Lena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Okay, first off, let me just say that I usually avoid teen paranormal romance/fantasy/whatever you want to call it. But this one was really fun!

It's a hilarious fantasy/sci-fi book for young adults, complete with romance, the requisite love triangle, plotting and betraying, kidnappings, alternate worlds and runes, oh my! The whole time I was reading, I kept cracking up, which is not what I expect from this kind of book. But in the best way, of course! I love books that make me laugh. I was surprised that this book was self-published, because it seemed to fit so perfectly into the YA genre that is so popular right now.

This is a new author I believe, and I have no doubt we'll see lots more from her in the future, probably traditionally published books. If you're wary of indie books because you think they aren't well-written or edited, you'd be surprised. This book is every bit as good (or better) than the handful other YA fantasy books I've read. Even better, it's funny! The protagonist has a witty, wry and sarcastic voice that will pull you in and make you laugh. My only complaint with this book was that it ended too soon! I wish it had been a little longer. I can't wait to see what happens to Haley in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fire in the Blood will ignite you! 14 May 2011
By M Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fire in the Blood is engaging and crafty. Ibitz Dale weaves an intriquing life/fantasy with engaging characters struggling with everyday cares while trying to unravel the impossible in their lives. Haley pulls you along in her story and it is entirely to easy to forget you aren't there with her having your heart strings and emotions tugged from every angle. This alternate reality fantasy touches on themes that many take to heart, such as global warming, betrayal, life and death. Ms. Dale surprises you often as you realize not everything is as it seems. I can't wait to curl up with my iPad for book two. Her craft with words is enough to entice me to snatch up her next series as well.
