Wicked Like a Wildfire

Lana Popovic

Popovic’s fantasy debut is a slow-burning fairy tale about the power of love and the bonds between siblings. In a village in Montenegro, 17-year-old Iris lives with her sweet, musical twin sister, Malina, and her harsh, icy mother, Jasmina. All the women in their family have the ability to magically manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. Their mother will not allow the sisters to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. But when Jasmina is mysteriously attacked, Iris and Malina are forced to embrace their magical heritage and unearth the truth behind the quiet life their mother has built for them.
