Sum It Up!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book



It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Zoë Sorensson’s love life is heating up. Cute, loyal, and understanding, wolf shifter Derek is pretty much the perfect guy. He likes Zoë, and he knows what it’s like to have to keep a secret. Yet, Zoë can’t help but wish it was rebel rocker Jared asking her to the Valentine’s dance instead. But Jared’s too busy playing hot and cold with her heart, calling Zoë his dragon girl one minute and then taking special interest in her best friend the next.

Zoë is just about ready to breathe fire, especially once she uncovers a new threat that targets her friends. Although Zoë thought the Mages were defeated, they’re back and have invoked an old spell to give them new power—they plan to eliminate all shape shifters on the night of the big dance. Now, Zoë must lead an alliance of young shifters to battle the Mages and figure out exactly what—and who—she wants, before it all goes up in smoke… (Goodreads)


Blazing the Trail by Deborah Cooke is a great YA read with wild imagination and full of great characters.

Zoe is once again thrown into a battle of life and possible death...

Zoe and her friends destroyed the Mages and can breathe a little easier… or not. The Valentines dance is coming sooner than expected and Zoe must decide what she wants or rather, who she wants. So, she chooses, knowing the rebel without a cause hottie, Jared, isn’t around anymore, she makes her decision…the cute, intense wolf shifter, Derek.

All is well with the world until Trevor and two other apprentice Mages summon a swarm of Shadow Eaters. In dreams, Zoe is shown what the future may look like and if she doesn’t take action and soon or she and everyone she cares for will die. To top it off, the hot Jared strolls back into town sending Zoe’s nerves and heart over the edge.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Unfortunately I hadn’t read the previous books and I apologize for not being more enthusiastic in this review of Blazing the Trail. However, once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. Deborah Cooke’s ability to explain past circumstances made reading this book very easy and I loved that she created a world appropriate for young readers to enjoy.
