I agree with some others who stated that this was not as good as the others in the series. It was quite different, but I found it really interesting because of that fact. It had been a long while since reading any of the books in the series so I had to remind myself who everyone was. This was the perfect book to do that with because the characters were being introduced anew. I really wonder why he chose to put so obvious a connection to religion in this one. The others seemed to touch briefly o...more
I love the last dragon chronicles and this was not what i was expecting, this is both good and bad. Good because it shows that Chris D' Lacey is an exceptionally good writer and can imagine out of the box. Bad because i really enjoyed the previous novels storyline.
This is taking the characters out into a different dimension, while it has a...more

My only really complaint is the creations of "new" words just by throwing in a colon. Like com:puter. Or ec:centric. The meaning doesn't change from the original word. While utterly pointless, it wa...more
I really love this series. The author's imagination keeps the reader's attention. I can't wait for the next book. I read this series out of order so I will want to go back and...more
Chris d'Lacey created a new form of writing, I don't know how he did it, he just did. There isn't that much action through the book, and a lot doesn't happen, but yet it captivates you so well. I have no idea how Chris managed to pull this off, I just can't say enough about it. Fire World was truly, probably, the best book ever.
Originally his writing was confined to songs and he didn't turn to fiction until he was 32. His first piece of work was a 250,000 word...more
