Fourth Wing meets The Fast and the Furious in Of Flame and Fury – the explosive YA fantasy by debut author Mikayla Bridge. With deadly phoenixes, edge-of-your-seat action and a smouldering enemies-to-lovers romance, you won't want to miss the hottest YA fantasy of the summer.

On an island built from ash and shrouded in fire, phoenix racing is the most profitable – and deadly – work you can find. No one knows that better than Kelyn Varra and her crew, the Crimson Howlers.

When the Howler's rider is gravely injured during a race, Kel is forced to join forces with arrogant, hot-headed Warren Coupers – the last person she would ever want on her team. But with her rising debts and threats to her beloved phoenix, Savita, the pressure to win has never been higher; and Kel is left with no other choice.

But then mysterious tech mogul Canen Cristo takes an unsettling interest in the team. Amidst perilous races, the threat of an unstoppable disease and her growing attraction to Coup, Kel soon uncovers a sinister plot that will threaten everything she cares for, as she fights to keep Savita and her magic out of the hands of those who would use it for their own gain . . .
