Review: Fire Study
Now the apprenticeship is over--
Now the real test has begun.
When word that Yelena is a Soulfinder--able to capture and release souls--spreads like wildfire, people grow uneasy. Already Yelena's unusual abilities and past have set her apart. As the Council debates Yelena's fate, she recieves a disturbing message: a plot is rising against her homeland, led by a murderous sorcerer she has defeated before...
Honor sets Yelena on a path that will test the limits of her skills, and the hope of reuniting with her beloved spurs her onward. Her journey is fraught with allies, enemies, lovers and would-be assassins, each of questionable loyalty. Yelena will have but one chance to prove herself--and save the land she holds dear.
Wow. That's all I can say. Wow. I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I'm sad. Sad because this is the final book in this AMAZING series. And happy, because I was given the privilege of reading this amazing series.
I love, love, love the plot. Every time, Maria V. Snyder comes up with a new, exciting plot and wows me again and again. And this time Yelena was in even more trouble than usual. I loved the twists and turns, the battles, the action, the magic, everything.
I love Yelena. She's strong, fearless, and she can take care of herself.
I love Valek. He's so sexy.
I like Cahil and teensy-tiny bit more, but I still hate him.
All in all, this is one really bad review for a really good book. This review does not do the book justice, so if you decide to read a book based on a review, ignore mine. Words just can't express how much I love this series.
