**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Even in a world of freaks, being a Firestarter is considered a dangerous Gift.

Lucy was born with the ability to create and control fire. She longs to leave the human world for one filled with Earthshakers, Transporters, and Chameleons, to name a few. When she rejoins the circus, it’s everything she hoped it could be—new friends, a potential love interest or two, and a place where she can be herself.

When troupe members begin turning up dead, however, Lucy is suspected of foul play. She must not only prove her innocence but also realize the full extent of her power. To find the real murderer, she must uncover the truth behind her father’s fiery legacy while figuring out whom to trust within her new circle. Little does she know the history of the Donovan Circus and its enemies might actually destroy the entire gifted world.

Lucy, a firestarter, turns to her father's old friends when her mother passes. She rejoins the Donovan Circus, and tries to integrate peacefully with everyone. She instantly makes friends with her roommate Delia, and her close circle of friends. Since she is the newbie she get to start earning her keep by doing grunt work, which is no biggie for her, until one of the other circus members is found dead in the parking lot. All fingers point to Lucy, and she has no idea why or who would set her up like this.
At first I thought things were going a little slow, the characters were getting to know each other, Lucy was finding herself in the middle of a love triangle, then BOOM, there's a murder. I just couldn't stop reading after that, I just kept turning the pages, then there is deceit! *Gasps* NO!! It can't be!!! Why would he do that?! I really liked him! I was so mad! Then all hell breaks loose or as I like to say the sh*t hits the fan. Loyalties are tested and fighting ensues, but in the end, is it over? 

OMG!! I loved it! Totally awesome and I cannot wait to read more about the Donovan Circus and who Lucy will choose?
