Today I’m delighted to take part in the blog tour for the brand new middle grade fantasy, Fireborn by Aisling Fowler, due to be published at the end of September.
Lyra. Lucy. Percy. Once in a generation, a hero emerges whose story enthralls readers worldwide.
Fireborn is an epic quest, perfect for fans of the His Dark Materials and The School for Good and Evil series, that will spin readers into a magical world like no other–and introduce them to an unforgettable new heroine named Twelve.
Ember is full of monsters.
Twelve gave up her name and identity to train in the art of hunting them–so she says. The truth is much more deadly: she trains to take revenge on those who took her family from her.
But when Twelve’s new home is attacked, she’ll find herself on an unexpected journey, where her hidden past is inescapably intertwined with her destiny–and the very fate of her world.
Already this debut novel is creating quite a buzz. Here are just a few of the great comments from book bloggers taking part in the tour.

The fantasy elements and included in this book are comparable to other classics, such as Harry Potter, but honestly, the diversity of the cast just take it to a whole new level for me...my favourite thing about this book is how it tackled its main themes – such as friendship, grief, family, discrimination, and acceptance….Grief is complicated, and Aisling’s portrayal of it was so beautiful, and incredibly moving.The Bewitched Reader – Click HERE to read their full review

About the author
Aisling was born in 1985 and wishes that she had grown up in a magical, mountainous kingdom, but was actually raised in Surrey on a diet of books and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her early ‘adventure’ stories involved surprisingly little action and her first novel (3 pages long) was politely declined by publishers at age 11. After earning a BSc in Biology and working as a support worker and then a nurse, the idea for her debut novel, Fireborn, came to her as she moved back and forth between London and the US. Now based in Hackney, when she is not reading or writing, Aisling loves cooking and plotting adventures (for herself as well as her fictional characters). Fireborn will be published by HarperCollins in 2021.
