[Review] - Arson

Title: Arson
Author: Estevan Vega
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: May 4, 2010

I receive this book for review from the author.

Summary:  Arson Gable feels like a freak. He can create fire. He never asked for it.  He never wanted it.  But he can't shut it off.

Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin—moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he’s never had: purpose. Using what he fears most about himself, Arson must face his consuming past and confront the nightmare that is his present as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Dark, moody, and breathtakingly relevant, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated boy with unimaginable ability, is sure to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.

Thoughts: Arson Gable can create fire.  A unique gift or a wretched curse. This part of Arson has always made him feel like a freak.  Feel like he has no purpose in life. Then he meets a girl named Embery, things change for the both of them.

Arson is a book that I've seen quite a bit of on the blogs. The cover definitely catches your attention. So, I jumped at the chance to review it when I was sent the request by the author.

Arson is a page turner.  Suspense and action that will fill your senses, while the romance will capture your heart.  An enthralling story.   Chillingly dark as well as vibrant.  I was definitely wowed by the story. It was much more than I thought it would be.  Plus I wasn't expecting a cliffhanger.  Mr Vega is a superb writer.  Don't rely on the book summary to learn what the book is about.  Crack the book open. It's a must read. 

Score:  4 Stars
