In the lush, tropical world of Martinique where slavery is a distant memory and voodoo holds sway, Emilie Dujon discovers that her fiancé, a rich sugar planter, is unfaithful. Desperate to leave him, she elicits the aid of a voodoo witch doctor and is lured into a shadowy world of black magic and extortion. When the volcano known as Mount Pelée begins to rumble and spew ash, she joins a scientific committee sent to investigate the crater. During the journey she meets Lt. Denis Rémy, an army officer with a mysterious past with whom she forms an unlikely attachment.
During the journey, the committee discovers that Mount Pelée is on the verge of eruption. When they try to warn the governor, he orders them to bury the evidence for fear of upsetting the upcoming election. As the pressure builds, a deadly mudslide inundates Emilie’s plantation and she disappears. Lt. Rémy deserts his post and sets off on a desperate quest to rescue Emilie. But with all roads blocked, can the lovers escape the doomed city of St. Pierre before it’s too late?

Island on Fire is a fascinating story. It is a perfect combination of love, action, horror, survival, suspense and history. With the eruption of the volcano, I had to find out what would happen next with the main characters. I stayed on the edge of my seat until the end. Even though the book is based on actual events, I had no way of predicting what would transpire on the following pages. I had to keep reading on until I was completely finished with the book.
I am going to give Island on Fire four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading historical fiction based on real events. I would love to read more like this from Sophie Schiller in the future. She has earned herself a new fan.
I received Island on Fire from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion
