Review - Fire by Kristin Cashore

It's 2 in the morning but I just finished reading Fire by Kristin Cashore and I had to write about it. I have to say, I was a bit worried when I heard that it was about a different set of characters entirely because I'd grown to love Katsa and Po. But within the first 10 pages my worry was proved to be totally and completely unfounded.

I loved the book.

Maybe more than I loved Graceling. I'm not quite sure. It was that amazing. I absolutely adored it. The description of the colors and all of the monsters that lived in the Dells. I liked that it was a bit of a prequel.

And while it seemed like a different world ENTIRELY from the world we come to know in Graceling, it's still completely and entirely believable that the two worlds are right next to each other.

I can't wait to read Bitterblue!

I'm sad I got Graceling and Fire from the library. I think I will go out and buy them simply to say I own them. That's how amazing they are. And I recommend them to anyone and everyone that loves fantasy. I mean, Fire is such an incredibly strong woman who just gets stronger in the face of adversity and all of the odds stacked against her. Another novel without a tiresome love triangle too! Not in the way MOST love triangles are anyway.

Not sure what I mean? You have to read it to find out! Kudos Kristin Cashore. The world that you've created, and the characters in that world.... outstanding.


  1. I LOVED LOVED LOVED both books as well. I received an ARC of Fire, and I bought a finished copy ^^
    I can't wait for Bitterblue to release, but the date keeps being pushed back. Bummer!

  2. I loved this review! I'm definitely going to buy Fire now. I was on the fence because I loved Graceling so much but now I can't wait to read it! Thanks for the great review!


  3. That's the worst thing about borrowing from the library...when you love a book you have to take it back.
    I read a lot of fantasy so will scope this one out.

  4. I just bought Graceling! I can't WAIT to start it!!!

  5. I liked this book better than Graceling- and same as you I borrowed it from the library originally and then went out and bought my own copy! Can't wait till Bitterblue comes out now...

  6. I absolutely loved Fire, more than Graceling too. I am glad you enjoyed it and are suggesting it to other readers. I practically force a copy into everyone's hands I come across HAHAHA!
