Feels like I am escaping into this world. Kailin Gow's books are a remedy to my chronic pain. You get caught up in it and lose all sense of time and place.

Thank you Ms. Gow for making learning SAT words fun and entertaining. I swear I aced the SAT Verbal because of several words I learned through The Wordwick Games Series. Thank you again!!!!

My book club did a marathon Kailin Gow read this month. She killed it with this book. Not only is she prolific but her books are so good, they win awards. Results speaks and she has them.

A Winner! Not only does this book have a great original story, but it has fresh characters that you will grow to love. I was rooting for certain ones to win, especially Gem. Fun book that also has a great way of helping people pick up vocabulary. I'd recommend this book to any high school class and reader of fantasy and romance.

Vocabulary building at its Best! Love the epic fantasy but this book stands out as a vocabulary builder. All teens should get a copy! I'm a high school teacher and I want my school to pick this book up for curriculum.

There were a few things that kept this one from being rated higher on my own personal rating meter, including the consistent chapter wrap ups of where all key characters were and the untapped potential of the storyline. Overall, it ended well and left room for future installments...of which I will be curious to see. Happy reading!

I love the premise of this book; the thought that words have power was very enthralling to me. The world building was wonderful and it was very easy to follow along through the story. I appreciated the fact that while the characters appeared to be stereotypical, they were in actuality far from it. No one wants to read about the jock or cheerleader in their same old roles. I will say there were a few issues that bothered me. Number one, if a book is placing so much importance on words, it should be thoroughly edited. I did not see this book labeled as an ARC and was unsure if these errors have already gone through in print. Number two, in the storyline these teens were supposedly chosen because they play an online version of the game quite well. However, we reach a point and one of the characters does not know any of the magic words on an extensive list. It¿s never really addressed any further in the book. It¿s a minor point, but had me wondering if he suffered from some learning disability to not know any of the words.Lastly, (and this is a totally minor issue) when they reach a point to have the list of magic words available to them, why don¿t they take it and have a couple soldiers carry it, if it¿s large and heavy. It might have been of great assistance. Just a thought on my part. Overall, I liked this story. I appreciated the fact that there were definitions for many of the words in back. I think that¿s a wonderful asset. I thought the twist at the end was amazing, I did not see it coming. The editing issue drove me a little buggy, but all in all it was a decent read. I¿m giving this one 2 ½ swaks!

My daughter can't stand so many of the teen books featuring a Bella Swan kind of air head and helpless girl. She has been a fan of this author's books for a while because Kailin Gow's books always have a main girl character who is independent. She has read most of this author's young adult books and tells me she can trust this author to provide a strong girl character she can relate to.

Promising but didn't deliver. Did I enjoy this book: This book was okay. The premise was good and sounded so promising. Unfortunately, Rise of the Fire Tamer did not meet my expectations. It just seemed underdeveloped and very predictable. For a game that, in order to win, the player must use "magic words," the words were not used or talked about all that often. I was expecting a lot more usage of these words. Shouldn't the players have used these special words more than they did? It just didn't make much sense to me. Words, and their definitions, should have been the focus of this book.  Also, there really weren't any characters that were all that sympathetic or worthy of rooting for. The characters were forgettable. In fact, writing this review, I cannot remember these characters all that well. I could not get behind any of them. A few times, I wanted to like Kat but she failed to deliver. Gemma seemed too pretentious. I wish we would have learned more about these characters...their backgrounds, feelings, hopes, etc. What did their parents think about all of this? Where were the parents? Who the winner was going to be was obvious from the beginning of the game. Furthermore, there were way too many typos and punctuation mistakes for me. A simple spell-check would have caught quite a few of the mistakes. It was distracting and took away from some of the pleasure of reading this book. Would I recommend it: I don't think that I would recommend this book. Will I read it again: I will not.  (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
