You might actually hate Kinley when you first open the pages to The Lava Lord. She is young, ambitious, and slightly ruthless. But with that said, her character arch is in my opinion the most affected, changed, and improved. Throughout the novel she not only conquers her fears, but she also opens her heart and does it in a style that stays true to herself. I also feel a close kinship to Kinley. If I were to be thrown into the situation that she was, I may have behaved in some of the same ways. She is spunky, creative, and most importantly… she’s not impossible to love.
