Fire by Kristin Cashore

Cashore, Kristin Fire, 461 p. $17.99. Penguin, 2009. Content: PG-13 (some violence). Beuatiful Frie is the last of the human “monsters” in her country of Dells. Her father used his powers of attraction to control a corrupt king; Fire was raised by a human with a conscience. Now Fire has been called to the capitol to help the new king hold onto his throne and she must find her place and her strength within this perilous time. Once I got over the fact that this book was not a direct sequel to Graceling, I was able to enjoy it must better. It stands on its own right and will be a great find for students who enjoyed Hilari Bell or Cinda Chima. MS, HS – ESSENTIAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
