Ashley Snow is a witch, but her life is still pretty normal. Her huge family is loving, caring, and they're there for each other no matter what. They keep their powers on the down-low, and so therefore seem more or less like humans. Ashley's waiting for her family's element to embrace her as well. She can't wait for fire to finally belong to her as well. It would be her own special element, shared only with her family. But Ashley's world is suddenly changed when her brother dies because of an enemy's attack. When she learns that one of her own was the one to kill her brother, she has a breakdown. All of a sudden, she can't trust anyone; and in her eyes, everyone is an enemy. You'd think that after all that, the fire within her would unleash, but the only thing that's unleashing is her anger and need for revenge. The hard part, though, is finding out WHO killed her brother, and WHY. Will the fire within Ashley ever release itself? And more importantly, will she ever be able to justify her brother's death?
