When Aurora is thrust into a world torn apart by war, she realizes she is the magically gifted child everyone is searching for. Haunted by the guilt of her sister’s accidental death and terrified of being found out, she swears never to use her powers. But all that changes when her best friend is mistaken as the wizard and kidnapped.

In her struggle to rescue him, she finds evidence the opposing armies may be connected, controlled by a single individual with his own agenda. With loved ones on both sides of the war, she is forced to decide who she can trust as she tries to stop the fighting. But, can she even trust her own sanity?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Beyond the well-crafted story line, the characters are diverse and distinctive and a pleasure to get to know as the story progresses. This is an excellent first novel of a new author who I hope will be writing more.


Billings writes a crafty tale that will surprise readers with many twists and turns. Aurora is a strong enough character to withstand some rather dark aspects of her personality that make her more real, more human, than most protagonists. The Girl Born of Smoke should be on your bookshelf today! Thanks for an entertaining read Jessica!


I really enjoyed this book. The twists and turns the author took me on were amazing. Just when I thought I had one person or situation figured out, the author threw me for a loop! I had a hard time knowing who I could trust and who I couldn’t–and at times that included the main character!
