There was just so much meat to this book. Not just the story itself, but you can easily see how much thought and planning went into it. An entire language was created in order to show how crazy King Leck really was. Cashore’s writing was fantastic, and even after such a long break in between books, I had no problem diving right in and getting lost in the story.
If you are looking for a love story in Fire, this might not be the book for you. Yes, there is a love interest – but it’s not at the forefront of the story. Fire and Brigan’s story takes a more cautious route – there is just so much history between the two characters that as much as you want them together you don’t know how it could possibly work.
