Arc Review: Winter Fire by Lizzy Ford

Winter Fire

The Witchling Series #3
Author: Lizzy Ford
Publication Date: June 21, 2013

With a Dark witching seeking revenge against him, Beck, the eighteen-year-old Master of Light, must find a way to protect those he loves, the witchlings – and his heart. His duty is further complicated by Morgan, a beautiful Fire witching with a secret that threatens to destroy the progress he’s made protecting the Light.

Before I started blogging, I discovered The Witchling Series by Lizzy Ford. At that time, only the first 2 books, Dark Summer and Autumn Storm, were out. I immediately fell in love with this series. In the paranormal category, witches and magic are my favorite books to read and this series is the top of my list in that category. I was super excited to have a chance to read and review the third book, Winter Fire and Lizzy did not disappoint. Here are all the reasons why I loved this book!


Winter Fire is Beck's story and I couldn't be happier that it is finally here. Decker and Summer's story was heart-wrenching and emotional and Lizzy is definitely not holding back on Beck. While we know most of Beck's problems from the first 2 books, they have been taken to a whole new level.

While Decker is the more passionate and intense twin, Beck is the carefree and lighter one. Beck makes a lot of poor decisions and he struggles with his duties as the Mater of Light. He has the potential and the goodness to handle the job but his personal problems tend to get in the way. Between his crazy psycho ex and the darkness threatening to take over, he has a lot on his hands. However, Winter Fire was all about Beck and I loved seeing him in a different light and getting to know him a lot better. He is much more complex than we have seen previously. He cares about all light witches and works so hard to protect them. He is truly passionate about his job and he would do anything to protect the people he cares about. When he meets Morgan, she is nothing like he expects and he finds himself in way over his head.

Morgan has the fire element and she is very passionate and feisty. She doesn't put up with any shit and she speaks her mind. She is immediately attracted to Beck and feels this unexplainable pull towards him. She wants to protect him and would do anything to help him. Morgan has experienced something terrible in the past and we still don’t know what “the incident” is but it is clearly something very traumatic that has caused her to be on guard and untrusting. It has also made her brother, Connor, very protective of her. However, something tells her to trust Beck and she finally lets him in. She has demons and all of her choices will determine whether she goes towards the light or the dark but one thing is clear; she is kind and caring and she will do anything to save her friends.

“If her father, Connor and Beck were accurate examples, then she began to think there was something off about witchling men.”

Morgan is nothing like the girls that Beck normally dates but he has this attraction to her from the moment they meet and he can’t get her out of his head. Morgan is very guarded and doesn't trust many people but something inside her pushes her towards Beck and tells her to trust him. Their elements complement each other and while Beck’s earth element settles Morgan’s emotions, her fire element ignites their passion and desire. When things get complicated and spiral out of control thanks to Dawn and her same old antics, Morgan must make a decision in order to save Beck, even if it means hurting him in the process. As is Lizzy’s fashion, this book ends with a Turner boy’s life being turned upside down and a heart-breaking cliffhanger that leaves you begging for more.

“You can’t save the world or prevent everything bad from happening. You can only really pick which battles you choose to fight.”

Lizzy is an incredible author and the writing in Winter Fire is just as good as the first 2 books. My favorite thing about these books is the maturity of the characters and the slight darkness in this series. It isn’t your average young adult paranormal and I absolutely love that. Plus, the setting is in Idaho and I am a born and raised Idaho girl so I love it! I can’t wait for the final book to see how the series will play out.
