Fire by Kristin Cashore Review
Summary from Goodreads:
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
When I first started reading this I was very disappointed that it was not about Katsa and Po from Graceling. But as I read it, it drew me in every bit as much as Graceling did and now I want more Fire and Brigan.
I love the world of the Dells with the beautiful monsters and their stark contrast of the semi-bleakness of the Dells. Learning the origins of Leck was an added bonus tying this to Graceling.
I look forward to Bitterblue and whatever else is on the horizon for this series!
