Destiny's Fire by Trisha Wolfe

Today I have Trisha Wolfe with me, talking about her debut YA, DESTINY'S FIRE, which released yesterday through Omnific Publishing. I'm so excited about this book, and not just because Trisha is my agency sister.

Trisha Wolfe, YA Author

It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.  

As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him. 

Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life. 

Opening lines:
I was losing consciousness, becoming lightheaded and dizzy. If I could just wedge my fingers beneath his arm, maybe I'd loosen his hold from around my neck.

Trish's favorite line:
Pulling the chain on my pack, I hurdled off the back of the airship behind Lana, Nick, and Jace—my glider wings spreading as I hit the open air. (So cool! I want to do this!)

If you could be any character from the story, who would you be?

Dez. She’s tough, but she’s still so girly at times. She has the best of both worlds (going for no spoilers here) and even though it’s hard for her at times, she always thinks about her friends and family, wanting to protect them. Now for the truth: so I can make out with Reese. (Ah, I love the real reason!)
