Book Review: Fire by Kristin Cashore


It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. The young King Nash clings to his throne while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. The mountains and forests are filled with spies and thieves and lawless men.

This is where Fire lives. With a wild, irresistible appearance and hair the color of flame, Fire is the last remaining human monster. Equally hated and adored, she had the unique ability to control minds, but she guards her power, unwilling to steal the secrets of innocent people. Especially when she has so many of her own.

Then Prince Brigan comes to bring her to King City, The royal family needs her help to uncover the plot against the king. Far away from home, Fire begins to realize there's more to her power than she ever dreamed. Her power could save the kingdom. If only she weren't afraid of becoming the monster her father was (

My Rate:  

I think I've already expressed my grief towards the support of the previous book of Pre-Marital Sex. I earnestly hoped this would be different. I should've known better. I am subdued to despair of what Fire and Archer had in the first few chapters of this book, and here I WAS, thinking there'd be more commitment between the characters. But man, was I wrong! The Strictly No Marriage theme underlying this book was a siren. And when someone got both person and person preggers in the same month, that made me go ballistic. Literally stomping my feet and fake strangling my pillow, which I think, wasn't the emotions the author intended me to feel. I could've dropped the book then and there but I just couldn't, even when it made me very frustrated in the dead of the night. I've already spent alot of time in reading this. Honestly, there are only two reasons why this is a two instead of a one is that it was well written for its genre. I am inclined to not like Fire (the protagonist) but the way I see it, she cant help but be loved and hated all at once. The character developments are well though of, in its defense.

Having finished this book, I realized just how much I hated it. This is worse than the previous book.
