REVIEW: “Graceling Realm: Fire” by Kristin Cashore

Author: Kristin Cashore
Publisher: Firebird
Format: Paperback
Page Count: 528
Recommend: Yes! - especially if you enjoy great fantasy books, or loved Graceling.

Plot summaryIt’s not a peaceful time in the Dells; in King City, King Nash is clinging to the throne while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to overthrow him. War is coming, and the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a young woman whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her. In the companion to the highly praised Graceling, there’s an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books.

I read Graceling years ago, and it remains one of my favourite books (a classification I don’t give out very often). Well, I kept hearing good things about Fire, and so I really had to check it out from the library after I got my new library card. This book is just as good as Graceling.

But okay listen: 7 years ago today, MILLIONS. LITERALLY MILLIONS. of Potterheads from all over the world were sitting with their brand-new copies of the Deathly Hallows and taking their final journey with Harry. It’s amazing when you think of the sheer scope of it-that many people in a sense united by this one book, riding the same emotional roller coaster simultaneously.
