Review: Fire with Fire by Jenny Had and Siobhan Vivian

Publication Date: August 13th 20173
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Genre: YA, Paranormal, Contemporary

Synopsis: When sweet revenge turns sour… Book two of a trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.

Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.

And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.

It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn...

My Rating
5/5 stars

My Review
“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. a burn for a burn. a life for a life. that's how all this got started. and that's how it's going to end.” 

This book was truly amazing. I was surprised, I fell in love with the characters even more, and this book was so addicting that I couldn't put it down until I finished it.

The girls created a master plan to get revenge, but the outcome wasn't the best. Rennie won't even speak to Lillia anymore, and Reeve is still acting like the big shot of the school. The worst part is, the girls still have to keep their relationship a secret, just incase someone knows about what they did. When the girls come up with an even better revenge plan, one that involves Lillia playing with Reeves heart just like he did with Mary's, everything goes according to plan, until Lillia actually stars falling for Reeve, the one boy whom she could never be with.

This book was so much better than the last. I love the friendship the girls have together, the budding romance between Lillia and Reeve, and most importantly Mary.

Mary's character development in this book is huge. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read the book yet, but by the end of the book Mary is a completely different person, in a good way. She goes from the shy little girl who is afraid of most things and doesn't have control of herself, to a powerful and strong woman, that can be dangerous at times. I loved it. After reading the first book, I never thought I'd be saying those words.

Lillia and Kat were also amazing. I loved seeing Lillia without Rennie, and how she was finally able to become her own person, rather than kind of following whatever Rennie was doing. And Kat is the same badass character I've always loved, and I adore how we get to see the determined smart girl she is in this book. 

The thing that really made me love this book was the intensity and the action of it. After I reached half way into the book, I could not put it down. I seriously stayed up until 4 am reading because I knew that even if I tried to fall asleep, I'd just end up thinking about the book anyways.

The ending was so shocking. I would have never seen it coming in a million years. I even had to put the book down for a moment and use my hand to close my mouth from hanging open because I was so shocked at what happened. The plot was definitely amazing and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Happy Reading,


  1. YES!! I'm so glad that you loved it! I think this is my favorite in the series. I loved Reeve's redemption arc, and seeing Lillia break out from what was expected of her. I will say that I don't like the third book that much. Nothing happened the way I wanted it to, and it was just weird. I felt like Han and Vivian went a direction that was just really off-putting. I hope you like the final book more than I did!!

  2. So glad that you loved it! I have yet to read any of Jenny Han's work but maybe someday.

    Thanks for sharing,
