A year ago, a fiery car crash took the life of Ember Riley's parents, leaving her without a scratch on her body, no memory of the accident and alone. Now fostered, tormented and fearful, Ember hardly recognizes the person she once was.
To make matters worse, a strange fiery heat is building inside her, causing her to question her sanity. Metal objects liquify at her touch. Boiling water has no effect on her skin, and whenever River Fulton, the enigmatic new guy is near her, it reaches volcanic proportions. His strange, hypnotic effect over her is calming, exciting and Ember realises not everyone is out to take what they want from her..
BUT ... Fire is coming.
Ember must dig into her past, re-live painful memories of who she is and who she must become if she is to save the world from Ra-Mon, a menacing immortal who wants to recreate the earth in his own image.
If she can't, there's no hope for mankind.
