Review: Fire by Kristin Cashore

Fire (The Seven Kingdoms Trilogy, #2)Fire by Kristin Cashore

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I did not read Graceling..the first book in this series, yet this book truly stands alone and is more than enjoyable.

Enter into a world filled with monsters that have power that prey, filled with war and espionage and treachery, filled with those human-monsters that can control your mind and gracelings that have their own specialized talents - by entered thse pages you enter the world of the Dells.

It is the brink of war when we meet Fire, a human-monster with the power to read and control other minds with her own and her "beauty". Ms. Cashore has created amazing secondary characters to bring out Fire.. for as the book develops, the characters that Fire surrounds herself with do too. The beginning, she is within her hometown, her best friend and lover Archer, the only things that she knows. Being brought to the King City by Prince Brigan, Fire becomes ignited. New place, new job, new people. She learns more about herself and those around her, she becomes empowered. A great development of Fire growing into womanhood through self-control, self-worth, grief, happiness, and love.
