Fear the Heat...



For the last two years Ari Johnson's life has been anything but normal, and on her 18th birthday, when her friends surprise her with a gimmick genie claiming to grant wishes, Ari discovers the truth. The tragic and strange occurrences surrounding her 16th birthday were not coincidental and her life is never going to be the same again.

Ari's real parents are not normal. They are not loving. They are not human.

They are myth.

They are Smokeless Fire.

They are Jinn.

The Jinn? What a great storyline! Beautiful cover! Cannot wait!

Samantha Young said...

Thanks Shelley! I really wanted to come up with a concept that hadn't been overused and Jinn mythology is just so rich. I am mega pleased with the cover art as well. Eeh, I'm excited for this series :-)

Absolute love this book. One of my favorites!! I can not wait till you release book 2. I must say you have a way with your characters. I love them!! You can feel everything they feel. And though I like Charlie I am a Jai fan. I read all your books, but I must say this has to be my favorite, I have read it twice lol. Keep up the great work!! I will check back often for new info on book 2:)

@ Jessica - wow, Jessica, I'm so happy you've enjoyed Smokeless Fire - uber, uber happy. I love when you enjoy it so much it's a re-read! Team Jai huh? :-p He seems to be winning. As for updates, I'm hoping to be able to post news of Book 2 sometime in December.
Cheers for the fab comments.

Best wishes

Samantha - I'm so hooked! I read Smokeless Fire in 1 day - I couldn't put it down. I love Ari and Jai (they better end up together haha)Cannot wait for the second book!

Samantha Young said...

@evolve - :-D So happy you enjoyed it! More Ari and Jai soon, I promise!

Kristin said...

Loved it! I have just started your books with this one and I have to say I am super excited. I love that it seems mixed with everything, not just steamy or action packed or even funny, but with enough of it all to keep me entertained! And I love your characters! I have to say I really like Jai, he and Ari are a good fit, as in it seems the would only amplify the other instead of push pull if they would just let go... I love the thrill of a good triangle tho and this one is tough. But all in all I find I want Ari and Jai together, as the seem more compatable, if not combustable(lol) ;p... Great work...

Samantha Young said...

Thanks so much, Kristin, I'm really happy you enjoyed book one! See *happy dance* ;-)

Jaime Kennett said...

Just got done reading Smokeless Fire. What an enjoyable read! Couldn't put it down. I am not familiar with Jinn lore and found it to be completely entertaining and riveting. Ari was very relate-able and I loved how loyal she was to her friends and how she struggled with knowing what to do with her future. Cannot wait to read the Scorched Skies!

Samantha Young said...

@Jaime - Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed Smokeless Fire and like the Jinn lore. I've always been fascinated with the Jinn and became even more so as I began researching them for this series. It's such a rich mythology, although I have tweaked it a little... a little creative license has been used here and there :-p Happy you liked Ari too! I cannot wait for the release of Scorched Skies and hope you enjoy the continuing story :-)

I started w smokeless fire. So loved it. I've read it probably a dozen times already. I was Squimish to read the other books. I'm not a ya reader really but I said what the heck? I loved S-F I would try warrior of ankh series. Loved it. I got the lunamorte series I just finished it so totally awesome I read both series in 2-3 days. Could not put it down. I didn't want to go to work I wanted to keep reading. So I can't wait for scorched skies I am so team ari and jai. Sorry charlie! I love the hot older guy thing. Like Lucien and caia. Can't wait!!!

Samantha Young said...

@Stephanie - Awesome! I'm so happy you've been enjoying my novels and are looking forward to Scorched Skies :-) I think Charlie may be losing to Jai... everyone seems to be Team Jai. :-p

Thanks, Stephanie! Such a wonderful comment. x

Hi! I'm French and I read everywhere that The Fire Spirits books are awesome. I wanted to know if there is a release planned in France, cause I can read in English, but sometimes I have to look for words in the dictionnary and I'm afraid I wouldn't understand everything. I hope we'll see them in France soon, I can't wait to read them! =)
