This book sounds like it will be good from the review. I understand that the name has been changed from Caloric to Ignite. Caloric sounds like it would be about losing weight. Ignite gives it more of a edge and sounds like it could be dramatic.

I find the books portrayal of how people react differently to life threatening situations to be interesting! Thanks for the review.

This book sounds very interesting! I'm not really into fantasy or magical powers but I might be able to give this book chance. The unknown result of their escape and secrets from their past are drawing me in.

This sounds like an interesting piece of urban fantasy, especially being able to see how different people react in life-threatening situations. Thank you for the honest review.

Fantastic, the book is full of inspirational, starting from the Title "Ignite" it denotes a lots of comprehensive meaning.
The book is highly recommended for both Adults and Youths

I like that there are two characters that serve as comic relief. The set up for the book could be just a bit too dark for without that. Thanks for the review.
