Summary: courtesy of She is the last of her kind...
It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her. Exquisitely romantic, this companion to the highly praised Graceling has an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books. You don’t need to have read Graceling to love Fire. But if you haven’t, you’ll be dying to read it next.
For Fans Of: Magic Study, Sacred Scars, and The Exiled Queen.
My Review: This book is by far my all time favorite!! The best thing about this book is that it is different from Graceling. Don’t get me wrong I love Graceling also, but after I read this, it took my heart away. Forever. I’ve read it at least four or five times. It has every thing I love in a book. Strong female character, hard to get handsome guy, and of course action! Gotta have that action and romance together. Sure, Graceling has action and romance, but it’s not the same as Fire. Fire (the main characters name) and Briggan’s relationship doesn’t start off that well, because of Fire being a “monster”, Briggan doesn’t trust her until, she shows that she is different then the usual monster. In Graceling however, Katsa and Po meeting each other at the beginning and start to grow closer together early in the story. Not leaving much of a chance to grow attached to the growing relationship. I love this book, and I love the connection it has with Graceling. I recommend it to anyone who loves hard to get handsome guys!
