Katie’s #CBR4 Review #30: Fire by Kristin Cashore
Author: Kristin Cashore
Review Summary: A little too similar toGraceling and not quite as good, but still an enjoyable read.
Although written second, Fire is actually a prequel to Graceling with only one character in common between the two books. Like Graceling, Fire is the story of a young woman coming to terms with her own power, in this case the power to control the minds of others. Known as “monsters” people with such powers are feared more than respected and Fire (our protagonist) has to decide whether she is willing to use her powers to help prevent the overthrow of the king by rebel lords.
