Présentation de l'éditeur

New Girl.
New School.
Old Evil.

From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels.

A new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework.


Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.

They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users. It's too bad Lily doesn't have powers of her own to help. At least, none that she's discovered yet...

Je ne le cache pas, au début ce n'était pas gagné avec cette série de Chloe Neill. Même si j'appréciais son univers, je ne trouvais pas qu'elle tirait son épingle du jeu. Nous avons une école privée pour jeunes filles riches, en jupes écossaises, des pestes délicates et surfaites, une coloc de chambre particulièrement conviviale, mais avec aussi des secrets, et une héroïne qui débarque à Chicago avec le sentiment d'avoir été lâchement abandonnée par ses parents (en congé sabbatique, pour deux ans, et exilés en Allemagne).
Déjà la mise en place était aguichante, sans tomber dans la folle excitation. J'étais curieuse, intriguée de savoir ce signifiaient les réunions dans les souterrains de la ville par exemple. Et puis Lily, l'héroïne, choisit de bousculer son destin en fourrant son nez où il ne faut pas, et l'histoire prend enfin un tour intéressant. Il existe bel et bien un monde caché, sous les couches de Chicago, et une poignée de jeunes gens a pris le sort de l'humanité entre leurs mains, grâce aussi à des pouvoirs spécifiques, mais ceci est une autre page à découvrir.
Le roman s'épluche comme une pomme, ça tournicote pas mal dans les premiers chapitres, ça se cherche, ça tâtonne avant de permettre d'apercevoir la belle broderie qui se tisse. Certes, ce n'est pas une lecture à couper le souffle, qui propose des choses nouvelles, mais ce qui distingue cette série c'est bien évidemment la signature de Chloe Neill.

Format:Poche
Gold Star Award Winner!

Lily's parents just broke the news that they're taking a two-year sabbatical in Munich, Germany - and that she's not invited. Immediately, Lily has visions of staying with Ashley while going through the SATs, college application process, and the prom. Her daydream fades as her mom breaks the news about a boarding school in Chicago.

The first day at St. Sophia's raises questions for Lily. She's so unsure why she's enrolled. Most girls have been coming here for years. She does connect with one of her suite mates, who could be her new best friend. But Scout has a secret, and it involves sneaking off until the middle of the night.

Scout's not about to fill Lily in just yet, so unable to hide her curiosity, Lily follows her one night down into the depths of the school in a maze of twists and turns. She stays behind a locked doorway until she hears Scout on the other side. Lily has tons more questions that Scout refuses to answer in order to keep her safe.

Trouble follows Lily around, and before long she falls victim to a prank and ends up locked in a room in the basement. By the time she figures out how to unlock the door, she runs into Scout and two boys running for their lives. Together, they race for the door to escape, but Lily get hit with magic and goes down. She wakes up in a hospital and forces Scout to spill the secret. Once she finds out, she wishes she didn't know quite so much.

Chloe Neill starts off her YA debut with a bang and never looks back. The mysterious school, bratty classmates, secret societies, and one best friend combine together to make an awesome start to a new paranormal series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Witches in Chicago 9 janvier 2010
Par Rachael Stein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Lily Parker is so not thrilled at being sent to St. Sophia's, a snooty boarding school in Chicago so that her parents can go on a sabbatical in Germany. She's not resentful of her parent's acceptance into their program, but she feels trading her upstate New York home for a used-to-be convent in the windy city totally unnecessary. Regardless of Lily's feelings, though, she's now a St. Sophia's girl, for better or worse. It seems like it's for the worse based on Lily's first experiences at the school. A trio of über-rich brats is intent on ruling the school and terrorizing anyone who gets in their way, Lily's new friend Scout keeps disappearing late at night, and there are strange people showing up around the school. When Lily finally learns the truth of what's going on, it threatens all she knows about the world. It turns out, there's a whole other side--a magical one--to the people around Lily, hew new friends, possibly her parents, and just maybe even herself.

I have to admit that Neill knows how to tell a story, and Firespell is certainly a good one. I must first remark that the pacing of this story is near perfect; the main action doesn't come too soon or too late. That in mind, I was quite satisfied with the story itself as well. Neill combines traditional interpretations of witchcraft with a version of vampirism in her dangerous world of magic underneath Chicago. In it, there are the Reapers, who refuse to let go of their power but must take energy from others to maintain it, and the Adepts, who vow to give up the power when it's time. The good versus evil is pretty obvious in black and white, but that's okay because it's not the entire concentration of the book. Where the story really starts getting interesting and complicated are the connections between the Adepts and Lily's only life. On the level of originality, Firespell ranks only moderately, but with its supernatural danger, intrigue, and romance, this novel sure is an enjoyable one.

Firespell will be liked by fans of Revealers by Amanda Marrone and Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez. I eagerly look forward to the rest of the Dark Elite series.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good PG13 Writing -- spoilers-- 5 février 2010
Par R. McFeeters - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I got this book, because I have read this authors other series (Chicagoland Vampires) which follows the adventures of a 28 year old Newbie Vampire. Where as this book is strictly PG13 the author's other series allows room for more adult content.

So when I say PG13 I mean, no curse words and not even so much as a kiss takes place with-in this books pages. I think this book would be well received by any teen, and if I was under the age of 20 I may have even gave it 4 or 5 stars, yet regrettably I'm not so the book didn't hold my interest as well.

The run down is as follows:

Lily Parker is 16 and lives in Up-State NY with her parents. They are philosophy professors at the local college. They are offered the opportunity to work in Germany for 2 years, but they decide its in Lilly's best interest to stay state side so they send her to a all girls boarding school in down town Chicago. Lily is none too happy about the turn of events, yet, being not of legal age she has little say in the matter.

When she arrives at St. Sophia's Academy for her junior year, she is ushered into the gothic building by a frigid, cold, and strict principle who talks way too much about responsibility and academics. She is given a room amongst 3 others that adjoin a living area. Her other 3 roommates consist of a book warm, a brat packer, and a Goth rebel. She is befriended intensely by the Goth rebel. Her name is Scout.

Scout has a secret, she is a spellbinder, or a witch or mage (however you want to look at it), she can wield magic. It turns out that there is a very small percentage of the human population that is able to cast spells and such. Of that population a even smaller percent have decided to do good rather then harm, a splinter cell so to speak. Scout is part of that splinter cell.

In this storyline you can use magic shortly after puberty and have it until 25, after 25 you become a Reaper if you still want to handle magic. You are unable to control or utilize your abilities later in life with out sucking the souls of the living for control over the dark arts.

Scouts splinter cell believes they should give up their magic at 25 and resign to normalcy, the greedy majority thinks they are evolved (a better species) and should have every right to feed off of humans souls for power.

Scouts mission is to protect humans from Reapers. In Scouts group are various witches or mages of various talents. Two twins that can wield fire and ice. A cute youngster that can read objects (Michael), a even cuter kid that can change into a wolf (Jason), and so on.

Jason happens to be the love interest in this book for Lily's characters, if you want to call it that seeing how they never even kiss.

The twist is that Lily can wield magic too, but said magic isn't awakened until she is hit with Firespell by a hunky college kid who is on the Baddies side (Sebastian).

Lily turns out to be a diamond in the rough, she is more powerful then most, can possibly turn bad quicker then others, and has Firespell as well. Firespell is a very powerful ability to kill or seriously injure someone or many with a flick of the wrist which release the deadly intentions.

Her parents aren't what she thought either, but I think that will be more explained in the next book. The principle is way cooler then let on, and there is some play by play with the stuck up popular girls (Brat Pack). The Brat Pack infact was the hardest part to get through when it came to this book. With the severity of everything else going on it was off being pulled back into a world of high school politics and popularity contests - but whatever.

It was a cute, quick read. Less then 250 pages. Great for tweens or teens, probably a bit boring for any one older. What is good here is the authors ability to write great characters. Lily is a so real she jumps off the page and that made it worth the one day it took to read it:-)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Firespell - Chloe Neill 6 janvier 2010
Par A. Schreiner - Publié sur Amazon.com

I think the blurb does a great job of summarizing the story and I really don't want to give more away than that, because part of the fun of reading this book is discovering what exactly lurks below the halls of St. Sophia's. Lily Parker is dropped off at St. Sophia's and immediately bonds with her suite mate, Scout, who has been at the school since she was twelve. Scout has a "been there, done that" attitude and takes Lily under her wing. Scout has secrets though - secrets that leave Lily very curious about the "errands" Scout is running that keep her out at night many hours past curfew.

As the blurb states, Scout is part of a rebel group, those who have magic but use it for good, to help innocents who the Reapers (those with corrupted evil power) have targeted. Included in the rebel group are Michael and Jason - both students at the nearby Montclare school, and both very attractive. It is obvious to Lily that there is an attraction between Michael and Scout. And as she looks at Jason, she can't help to notice his dimples and charming smile. As Lily uncovers the secrets Scout and her group are hiding, Lily finds herself spending more time with Jason and finds out he is hiding something very big himself.

Firespell is a really fun book, but it is also a book that leaves so many questions!! Why torture us Chloe Neill? Alright, I will admit this is a good kind of torture. What is up with Lily's parents - are they really on an academic sabbatical? Is the headmistress of the school a really mean old lady, or does she have secrets too? I really want to know more about Sebastian, one of the Reapers, for reasons I can't disclose with out big spoilers. I actually really like series that make you work for all of the answers, and this one will leave you more than ready to read the sequel.

One of my favorite things about Chloe Neill books are her supporting characters. In her Chicagoland Vampire series, I love Mallory, Merit's best friend. And in Firespell, while I really like Lily, Scout is the one that truly makes the story for me. She has just the right combination of spunk, quirkiness, and loyalty that makes her stand out and steal the spotlight.

Lily bonds with Scout right away, but there are other girls that she is not so fortunate to meet. Scout refers to their actions as TBD - Total Brat Drama, but they are the group of snobby girls who think they are better than everyone else. They are there to give Lily and friends a hard time and cause trouble where they can. Maybe they will play a role in something bigger in future books, but for now they just were annoying - which is likely the intent. While the scenario of new girl at school who has to fight the mean girls (and the monsters) has been played out before, the witty dialogue, unanswered questions, and the depth of the characters are what really stand out in this book.

Firespell only just touches on the supernatural part, leaving much more to be explored in future books. I really like the concept of the evil beings and the fight Lily and crew have ahead of them. The start of the Dark Elite series has grabbed my attention and I am looking forward to the adventures of Lily and Scout (and Jason!).

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Yawn... 9 juillet 2010
Par H. Lam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I have read many YA books going into the paranormal world, and this is the first I've felt negatively enough to comment on. The dialogue was awkward- as another rater's 14 year old daughter said, teens do not say "brat packs" and have "Queen Bees" at every school. The dialogue between Jason and Lily was beyond awkward as well- how many people refer to others directly with a full name or last name every time? Maybe if it was one character's quirk, but this bit annoyed me as every character was "Garcia... Lily Parker... Shepherd!" You'd think after rescuing each other and joining a secret group together they'd have some familiarity, possibly enough to refer to each other's first names? The chemistry between the pair was stilted and lackluster. I don't see teens saying, "Let me kiss you... well maybe I will." I was cringing as I skimmed the dialogue.

The idea of one to three girls ruling a school is definitely cliched... I can say maybe 95% of the YA paranormal books I've read featured this. A little more originality please. Another stereotype was the usual male rescue of the damsel in distress. I would love to see a YA paranormal featuring a heroine who can stand on her two feet from page one. She might be clueless, but it happens that one accident or another sends the leading girl into the guys arms, and love develops... Jason, our hero, seems like the usual "teen fantasy;" however, the lack of character development results in a flat, boring character. Sebastian and his twist make him immediately a more memorable character than Jason.

I also chose this book after reading the Chicagoland vampire series, which I felt started off well. The heroine was capable and interesting, and I hoped Firespell would deliver as well... but I can say those two hours reading could have been better spent elsewhere.

FIRESPELL, a paranormal mystery/urban fantasy, is the first in a new series of books by Chloe Neill. I haven't read anything by this author before but I am impressed. It has a great storyline, likeable characters and well-written relationships. Nothing pretentious, it is just a smooth easy read. I believe it is aimed at teens and young adults but older people should enjoy it also.

Lily Parker, sixteen and from upper NY is shipped off to an all-girls private school in Chicago while her parents are doing research in Europe. Hesitant at first she soon becomes BFF with Scout, develops a 'chemistry' with Jason, avoids the Brat Pack and tries to steer clear of the Reapers. Everyone is not whom they appear to be and that is part of the fun when you read this book.

Some reviewers may compare it to TWILIGHT by Stephanie Meyers but whether you liked that book or not don't avoid reading FIRESPELL. The plot is different and you will anxiously await for the next book in this series. I really don't want to give too much more away so you can be drawn in to the narrative like I was. While I am waiting for the next novel of The Dark Elite I am going to search for Ms. Neill's other books. Enjoy!
