Summary(from Goodreads):

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. 

I was excited about Destiny’s Fire right off the bat and it did not disappoint at all. In fact, it exceeded expectations in every way! The more I read, the more excited about the story I got. Trisha Wolfe, created an awesome storyline, cool kick butt characters, and gadgets worthy of the steampunk title. So many of the 2012 debuts have such a huge hype surrounding them, and Destiny’s Fire deserves all of it.

The story focuses around Dez and her three triplet friends. They are all members of the Shythe race. I love Dez! She is so special- nice, really good without being annoying, and pretty. I felt so bad that she was nervous to tell her friends her secret. Especially Jace. I love Jace so much! I am on team Jace all the way. He is just so sweet to Dez and you can tell that he has loved her forever. It is just so cute to see him get nervous and be protective around her. But of course Dez is a teenager, so when a hot new guy shows up in town she can’t resist him. Reese is ok, but it will always be Jace for me. I’m not 100% sure that this triangle is totally resolved so I can’t wait to see where it goes in the next book. But I really liked that this YA did not shy away from the romance. It was one of my favorite parts of the story, which is really saying something because there are such cool powers and a blooming conflict between two races going on too!

I loved the way the two races were described. It is going to be so cool to see what else is to come for them and how Dez will react to everything. I am fascinated by her, and I can’t wait to see what is next for her and her friends. (and her love life of course!) Destiny’s Fire grabbed my attention and my heart and it did not let go until long after I was done reading. This is going to be a hard book to top! I loved it so much, you need to read this book! If this book is any indication, 2012 is going to be an epic year!!

    A 5 gavel read! Sounds great. I didn’t think it was steampunk at first cause of the pink cover, I had to really study it to get the steam punk elements. Could be I haven’t had enough caffeine yet this morning.

    Great review! I’m glad to see this book lives up to its hype! I’ve been meaning to read this but never got to it, partly since there are too many good books to read! But I will bump this up my TBR pile.
