DragonDreamsJen’s #CBR4 Review #29 Fire by Kristen Cashore
Fire is the prequel novel to Kristen Cashore’s amazing debut novel Graceling. It takes place slightly earlier in her worlds timeline and covers the background history of Graceling’s powerful villain, Leck.
Fire is both the title of the novel and the main character, a beautiful human/monster hybrid with brilliantly coloured hair, special gifts and the burden of the legacy that her monster father, Cansrel, left behind. Cansrel had not only been infamous for his physical beauty, but for his cruelty, his twisted appetites and his ability to control weaker minds including that of the former king.
