Book Review: Fire by Kristin Cashore

Even if you haven't read the extremely popular YA novel Graceling by Kristin Cashore, you should still check out the new companion novel Fire. It takes place in a slightly different place and time, and only one character from Graceling appears, so you don't have to have read Graceling to understand Fire. The books could be read in any order, but especially for fans of romantic fantasy, they should both be read!

In the novel, Fire is the last human monster, who struggles with the way the world sees her and the way she sees herself. She possesses the ability to control the minds of others, but in the Dells where she lives, war is coming, and even her ability may not be enough to help.

Although Fire started off slowly for me, it did get more interesting up and I finished reading most of it in one day. I highly recommend it for teens who love books like The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins and The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.
