Today’s my stop on the Blog Tour hosted by the wonderful The Write Reads for With Fire in Their Blood by Kat Delacorte! This was supposed to be a review, but unfortunately, I haven’t finished the book yet. My first impressions of the book are all very positive and I’m hoping to have a review up before the end of the tour.
Thank you to the TWR team for organizing this blog tour and for Penguin providing me with the promotional materials for this tour.
Title: With Fire In Their Blood
Author: Kat Delacorte
Publication Date: 1 September 2022
Genre: YA Fantasy
Length: 416 Pages
From Goodreads: With Fire In Their Blood is a simmering supernatural romance set in the crumbling Italian city of Castello, where mafia clans make the rules, dark magic pulses the streets and the sins of the past threaten to consume the present. Perfect for fans of These Violent Delights, The Darkest Minds and V.E. Schwab.
When sixteen-year-old Lilly Deluca arrives in Castello, she isn’t impressed. A secluded town in the Italian mountains is not where she saw her last years of high school playing out.
Divided for generations by a brutal clan-family war, the two halves of Castello are kept from destroying each other by the mysterious General, a leader determined to maintain order and ‘purity’. . . whatever the cost.
Lilly falls in with the rebellious Liza, brooding Nico and sensitive Christian, and sparks begin to fly. But in a city where love can lead to ruin, Lilly isn’t sure she can trust anyone – not even herself.
And then she accidentally breaks Castello’s most important rule: when the General’s men come to test your blood, you’d better not be anything more than human . . .
Kat Delacorte was eleven years old when her family moved from the United States to a small town in central Italy. She soon began writing stories about her new friends developing superpowers, and she hasn’t looked back since. She graduated with a BA in History from Columbia University, and lives in Venice, Italy.
