Publisher's Summary

A must-read title for all fans of Patrick Rothfuss and Trudi Canavan, Fire is an exceptional fantasy novel. From the deft characterisation to the gripping story, the fast-paced action to the evocative prose, this is one of the strongest fantasy novels of the year.
Set in a world of stunningly beautiful, exceptionally dangerous monsters, Fire is one of the most dangerous monsters of all - a human one. Marked out by her vivid red hair, she's more than attractive. Fire is mesmerising.
But with this extraordinary beauty comes influence and power. People who are susceptible to her appeal will do anything for her attention, and for her affection. They will turn away from their families, their work, and their duties for her. They will forget their responsibilities to please her and worse, crush nations, neglect kingdoms and abuse their power.
Aware of her power, and afraid of it, Fire lives in a corner of the world away from people, and away from temptation. Until the day comes when she is needed - a day when, for her king, she has to take a stand not only against his enemies, but also against herself.

Not as good as the first

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Set in a different location but same world as Graceling, there is only one character familiar to readers of the first book. The story has a broad romantic streak through it - if you enjoyed the relationship of the protagonists in Graceling you'll enjoy more of the same in Fire. It is still a fantasy novel though, and fantasy themes are fundamental to the story.

Would you recommend Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

Only if they liked Graceling, I didnt find the story as enjoyable as Graceling.

What does Emma Powell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Smooth voice, good pacing, good voice characterisations

Any additional comments?

This is a different story to Graceling, so fans of that book may be disappointed. Or like me, it may just grow on you if you give it a go.

Not what I expected!

After graceling, this book was somewhat of a let down. I had high expectations, but it wasn't until at least halfway through that the story became at least a little interesting. Overall I felt that it was a disappointing addition to the series.
