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.

I liked the first book (Graceling), but I REALLY liked Fire even more. While reading this, I was thinking about the Wizard of OZ. There was something about this book that really reminded me of the movie. The descriptions were so intense, I could picture the colors as vividly as watching the movie. Fire is such a wonderful female character that shows real depth and emotion. I was sorry this one had to end.
The story is appropriate for younger teens and I think everyone would enjoy this book. The cover nicely depicts the core of the story as the bow and arrow come back again and again in the tale.
