Product description

In Rosiee Thor’s lavish fantasy novel with a Jazz Age spark, a politically savvy teen must weigh her desire to climb the social ladder against her heart in a world where magic buys votes. Flare is power.

With only a drop of flare, one can light the night sky with fireworks . . . or burn a building to the ground—and seventeen-year-old Ingrid Ellis wants her fair share.

Ingrid doesn’t have a family fortune, monetary or magical, but at least she has a plan: Rise to the top on the arm of Linden Holt, heir to a hefty political legacy and the largest fortune of flare in all of Candesce. Her only obstacle is Linden’s father who refuses to acknowledge her.

So when Senator Holt announces his run for president, Ingrid uses the situation to her advantage. She strikes a deal to spy on the senator’s opposition in exchange for his approval and the status she so desperately craves. But the longer Ingrid wears two masks, the more she questions where her true allegiances lie.

Will she stand with the Holts, or will she forge her own path?
  • A fabulous coming-of-age fantasy novel with a uniquely 1920’s inspired setting
  • Featuring a joyfully diverse LGBTQ+ cast
  • Look out for Tarnished are the Stars, Rosiee’s debut novel, available now.

    My February Book of the Month for teens is Fire Becomes Her. Seventeen-year-old Ingrid Ellis doesn’t have a family fortune, monetary or magical. In a world where magic means everything, and just a drop of it can light the night sky, she has a plan to get her fair share. She strikes a deal with presidential candidate Holt to spy on his opposition, in exchange for his approval to date his son. On the arm of Linden Holt; heir to a political legacy and the largest magic fortune of all, she can rise to the top and acquire the status she so desperately craves. But the longer Ingrid wears two masks, the more she questions where her true allegiances lie. Will Ingrid burn bright, or burn it all to the ground?

    This fabulous coming-of-age novel comes from author Rosiee Thor. It is a lavish fantasy with a jazz age spark, set in the magical 1920s. Featuring a joyfully diverse LGBTQ+ cast, it also touches on topical subjects of politics, climbing the social ladder, status and class. With the glamour of The Great Gatsby, the scheming of The Hunger Games and a touch of Gossip Girl’s social status, Fire Becomes Her is sure to become your next favourite book.
