Review: Fire

It has been a while since I have read a good old fashioned fantasy.  It seems that lately I have been drawn to the paranormal or the urban fantasies.  However as I was looking through my to-be-read pile I came across FIRE by Kristin Cashore and decided to give it a try.  I have to say that I am very glad that I did. 

FIRE is fantasy that is classic in the sense that it is good against evil.  But the battles and the wars are more of the background setting.  FIRE is about two people, Fire and Brigan, and their growing love for each other.  The rest of the characters, and there are some great secondary characters, are there to support Fire and Brigan.

I loved this book and I can't even pinpoint why.  I just know that I had a hard time setting it aside.  I am so far behind on my emails and blogs now.  I rate it a 4.5 out of a 5.
