Fire // Book Review

book review - Fire Edit


Genre: fantasy  // Pub: Oct 2009

I read Graceling by Kristin Cashore four years ago and I remember how that book left a lasting impression with me. Looking back, I think Graceling was the book that propelled me into liking (and loving) the fantasy genre.

Fire, is the second book that takes place in Cashore’s Graceling realm. It’s a long, slow story propelled by palace intrigue and the interactions and development between Fire (the character) and her friends. I absolutely loved it!

One thing I like about Fire is the slow and natural progression of the relationships and friendships between the characters.

I also really like Fire’s character. I liked how she’s emotional, head-strong, and confident in herself. She feels what she feels and doesn’t try to change that.

I just really like Fire. She’s committed and interested in proving herself to others and to grow as a person.

The whole thing with Leck though, threw me off, but it was an interesting development in some cases.

I’m really glad I finally picked up Fire. Although, I really enjoyed reading this book, I don’t think I’ll be picking up Bitterblue in the future (or at all).

  1. I really need to read this one too!! I LOVED Graceling. I think I read it…eh, two years ago? Omg, that’s longer ago than I thought! I need to read the sequel. xD Although I’ve heard it’s not about the same characters (right?) so I think that’s what’s put me off a bit…but I do love the author’s writing so hopefully I enjoy this one….when I eventually get to it. IF MY TBR DOESN’T SQUASH ME FIRST. *shrieks and runs away from mountain of books*

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!


    • It isn’t the same characters, but it’s the same universe/realm. I really liked it and it was a great reprieve during a long road-trip.
      Although, I’ve read some people don’t like it because it’s too ‘slow’ for them so if that throws you off maybe you might want to reconsider, but I love books like that ❤
