Wildefire by Karsten Knight

Ashline Wilde is sent to boarding school after the death of a classmate and the disappearance of her sister Eve.  Ashline was the only who saw what Eve did, and she knows that no one would ever believe her.  Things are going pretty well at Ash's new school until strange things start happening, and not just to her.  A group of Blackwood students learn that they are actually gods and goddesses with incredible powers, and a war is coming.

I find I don't have very much to say about this one.  It was fine.  A little draggy.  It took an awfully long time for anything to happen, and then when it did, there wasn't a whole lot to it.  It kind of felt like this book was mostly just a set-up for the rest of the series.  Mostly, it was another book about teens realizing they're actually gods, and there wasn't anything distinguishing about it, accept for the fact that once they realize what they are, they sure to figure out how to use their powers real fast.

You might be able to tell I'm kind of tired of this genre.  It was fine, and if your kids are clamoring for more of this genre, well, here you go.

Wildefire comes out July 26.
