In Josephine Angelini's Trial by Fire, what makes Lily weak at home is what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. In this confusing alternate world, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone and a love she never expected. This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying experiences that others in her hometown of Salem take for granted, which is why she is determined to enjoy her first high school party with her best friend and longtime crush, Tristan. But after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class, Lily wishes she could just disappear. Suddenly, Lily is in a different Salem—one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruelest of them all is Lillian . . . Lily's other self in this alternate universe.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A must-read romance. This is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It has everything a book should have: action, adventure, violence, a butt-kicking heroine, and one hot hero.”

    USA Today

  • “Angelini creates an escapist fantasy infused with magic and complicated romance, while taking up themes of science gone wrong and humans’ endangerment of the world and their environment. The ways in which the two worlds mirror one another—specifically, how Lily’s weakness in one realm means strength in the other—provide emotional resonance and fascinating possibilities for subsequent books in the Worldwalker trilogy.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Angelini’s latest series opener combines the best elements of a magical fantasy with hints of sci-fi, history, and romance.”

    Library Journal

  • “Once meek and tormented by debilitating allergies, a girl is transported to an alternate universe and becomes a staggeringly powerful witch…A richly drawn world of keenly devised magic.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A compelling, intricate world, a swoony romance, and a memorable cast make this one a blazing success.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Emma Galvin’s confident and measured narration introduces Angelini’s new fantasy series, which delves into parallel dimensions, one of which contains doppelgängers with magical powers. In her own dimension Lily is sick and weak, characteristics that are reflected in a timid and cautious voice. Rowan, a local warlock, helps Lily learn her newfound magical powers. Galvin nails the relationship between Lily and Rowan—their emotional connection crackles with intensity. Lily’s doppelgänger, Lilian, has a raspy tone stripped of all compassion. The more confident Lily becomes with her powers, the deeper Lilian descends into raging madness, which Galvin nails with the perfect maniacal pitch. The narration is paced just right, keeping the listener fully engaged until the cliff-hanger ending.”
