Prequel/companion book to Graceling, this is the story of Fire, the last human monster hybrid with bright reddish gold hair and the ability to control minds around her. Her father, now dead, was an evil monster who took great joy in using his powers to destroy, and Fire is determined not to be like him. Prince Brigan brings her to the capital city of the Dells, where her powers are needed to discover who's behind the plot to kill the king and bring down the royal family. Torn between the prince and her first love, Archer, Fire must tread carefully among the political rivals and plots in order to save her kingdom from a destructive evil presence. Beautiful writing, excellent character development. Some mature content and complicated plot -- for 8th grade and up.
