Burning Bright by Tanya Huff
My rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Beth Aswith, a wizard, has one last conversation with her daughter Carlene before she dies and her daughter’s flesh burns away as her true nature–a fire elemental–reasserts itself. Carlene finds her friend Alynne to help her contact other wizards so she can get a new body. The wizards, not happy to be contacted by a non-wizard or taking with one another, agree after everyone realize that Carlene is “too human” for a fire elemental and with Alynne’s help is able to return Carlene to flesh.
This was a story that had some good potential, but there was a lot of skipping in chronology and some bad dialogue that just hurt things a lot.
