Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greta Holt
A poetic writing touch: the book begins and ends with Sky-Witches running and jumping on city roofs. Lucas and Glory work for, and train with, the legal office of Witchkind Intelligence and Covert Affairs, WICA. Both youths have the highest type of fae (seventh sense,) which makes them valuable agents. Witch Fire is the second book in the series, but readers do not absolutely have to read the first book, Burn Mark, because Powell seamlessly weaves essential backstory into the beginning chapters of her second book. Readers learn that Glory comes from a long line of witches, some of whom are in criminal organizations, while Lucas's father is an Inquisitor. The story takes readers from London to a school near Geneva, Switzerland, where Endor, an outlawed organization may be recruiting witches with a suspect brain procedure. Glory travels to South America and Lucas follows. An evil sociopath, a beautiful but manipulated witch, and feckless wannabes populate a night club milieu with our heroes. Magic is used and misused. Fathers, cousins, and agency directors bring an uneasy, post-Inquisition world to life with uncomfortable alliances, shadowy business ventures, and vendettas. Book two of the "Burn Mark" series.

Gr 7 Up—In a modern world in which witches and witchcraft are regulated (and often discriminated against), this sequel to Burn Mark (Bloomsbury, 2012) finds teen witches Lucas and Glory working for WICA-Britain's agengy of Witchkind Intelligence and Covert Affairs. They are sent to infiltrate a boarding school in Switzerland, hoping to uncover ties to a witch-terrorist organization. They get more than they bargain for when they find out about a dangerous new operation that can remove a witch's fae (power). Fans of the first book will enjoy further insights into Lucas's and Glory's personalities, though many of the other characters are a bit one-dimensional. International espionage, fantastical witchwork, and even some romance are present in this exciting, fast-paced read that will appeal to fans of Robert Muchamore's "Cherub" series (S & S), as well as to urban fantasy seekers.—Jenny Berggren, formerly at New York Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
In this largely successful sequel to Burn Mark, Lucas and Glory, trained in the use of their considerable fae powers to fight witchcrime, pose as students to investigate Wildings, an elite Swiss boarding school believed to have terrorist ties. Each is restless, conflicted and awkwardly aware of their growing mutual attraction. Connected to a leading coven/crime family, Glory's not entirely happy to be working for a government whose centuries-old Inquisition once terrorized witches and continues to marginalize them. Her tough working-class demeanor masks vulnerability and pain from her mother's abandonment. Unlike Glory, reserved, upper-class Lucas considers his fae, which ended his father's Inquisitorial career, more liability than gift. Remote and well-guarded, Wildings is where the rich and powerful discreetly park offspring who've developed fae powers. (One has ties to Glory's family.) While Glory's risk-taking pushes Lucas out of his comfort zone, it advances their investigation, which leads to a South American country whose brutal government tolerates witchcraft. Immensely likable, Lucas and Glory are major assets, along with vivid settings and Powell's wry political savvy. But explaining what's gone before in this complex world slows the opening chapters (making the case for restoring synopses to series fiction). That duty discharged, the pace accelerates and the plot grips. Smart, suspenseful and delicious. (Urban fantasy. 14 & up)
