Fire Summary

Fire by Kristin Cashore

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 stand against not only his enemies, but also against herself ...

Fire Reviews

"This is a carefully constructed work, with plots and relationships that are slowly revealed and interwoven. Cashore doesn't shy away from the pain and suffering of war, but it's not tiresomely gritty by any means. Instead, fluid prose guides you through to the - slightly inevitable - end." -- Rhian Drinkwater SFX "I fell in love with Fire at first sight, dazzled by its beautiful prose, its lush world building, its subtle and complex plot lines, and its heady characters. I absolutely loved Fire, and it is one of my favorite reads of the year. Absolutely recommended to all." THE BOOK SMUGGLERS "This wonderful novel is difficult to put down. There's something for everyone: breathtaking descriptions, fast paced plot, believable characters, battles, romance and a main character that ties it all together beautifully." WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY "Fire is fresh, interesting, and fun. And the sort of book that, above all, will make its readers impatient for any stories that may follow." BOOKGEEKS.CO.UK "The setting is rich and beautifully explored and described, the characters all multidimensional, interesting and believable, and the romance is exquisitely drawn out and developed. Cashore has created a world it's a real joy to exist in, populated with characters it's a pleasure to be among." THE BOOK BAG "The relationships between characters are explored to a fairly satisfying degree that may well appeal to some fans of Twilight. Fire is smartly written and well imagined." SCI FI NOW
