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 ...

This is the second book in a trilogy. I eagerly looked forward to continuing the saga, but the author went off in another direction with this story and I was uncomfortable with it for quite some time before I got into the rhythm and characters. Once I decided that this was more a stand-alone story, having little to do with the world of the first set of characters, I enjoyed the book. I've finished the third book now, and can see how the characters tie in, but the connection is not very satisfying. I haven't discovered yet whether or not there will be a fourth book, but the 1st and 3rd were the best of the three.
