Fire-By Kristin Cashore

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.'

This book is kind of a prequel to Graceling. I thought I would like this book as much as the first, but Fire just seemed to fall flat. There was nothing wrong with it, other then the fact that I didn't care about the characters, or the story. there was a whole bunch of twists and turns, but I didn't find any of them shocking or interesting because I just wasn't interested. I don't know why.

  1. Once again I enjoyed Ms Kashore's work. I think that she humanizes her characters. I loved that in the first book and I loved it in this one. Her character development is one of the reasons I enjoy her books.
