“She who wields the mark is the barrier between man and monster.
She is the daughter of gods, the mother of man, protector of all.
Vigilati Usque Ad Mortem”

All Isla Macallen wanted was a simple existence on her little Scottish island, free from her
mother's insanity and the prying eyes of neighbors. What she got was embroiled in a war for the
souls of mankind. A war of good versus evil, of witches versus demons, and Isla learns that she
alone can end it.

Dr. Jeremiah Rousseau was a self-proclaimed nomad, traveling the world researching
paranormal phenomena. He doesn't expect his research to lead him to Scotland, and to the
woman who will turn his world upside down.

Together with a facetious shapeshifting animal spirit guide, Jeremiah and Isla discover that she is
part of an ancient bloodline bred to protect the gateways between the human world and the spirit
world, to keep evil demons from destroying them. They must find the key to defeating Alastore,
the demon king, and closing the gate before Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is lifted.
Alastore does everything in his power to eliminate them but, unbeknownst to all of them, Isla is
the only one with the ability to stop him for good.


‘Fire On The Island’ was a very deep story about a woman who experienced a very tragic childhood that left her alone and unsure of where she came from or what she was for that matter. On the island that she lives on, the natives began spreading rumors about her, saying that she’s a witch. Those rumors are what catch Jeremiah’s attention. Jeremiah has spent his life working on studying and following paranormal activity and has come across a book he is trying to translate about a group of ancient witches he believes to be from the same island where these rumors have surfaced from. 
So when his editor insists he take a vacation the island is his chosen spot. There he meets Isla she runs Expeditions a place that runs outdoor activities, hikes, kayak tours, and such.
Jeremiah and Isla begin to see each other and Jeremiah discovers Isla is the woman the natives believe is a witch. 
It turns out Isla is a witch and she has no idea but horrible things begin to happen and Isla has to tap into her powers to stop them. 
‘Fire On The Island’ was such a unique story. It was a paranormal tale of witches and demons. However there was also an underlying story about family problems and not knowing who you are or where you came from. I really loved Isla’s character she was so strong, unique, and funny. She was everything you usually hope to find in a main character.
I enjoyed the plot because I really felt like it was fresh and new. I finished this book very quickly; it kept my attention from the very first page. Something intriguing was always happening. ‘Fire On The Island’ is a definite page turner.
I love when paranormal books have that family element to it. Where the whole group bands together to fight the evil force and that’s what happened here.
I would recommend this book for any paranormal fans.
