Wow. I am really impressed with Moore's ability to write in so many diverse voices! He is a fantastic storyteller, revealing only the details you need and, usually, still able to surprise you at the end. My only slight disappointment was the ending - the book raises so many questions, I was hoping desperately for loose ends to be tied up. Once again, he surprised me. Moore provides philosophical food-for-thought, gives you themes to consider, but ultimately leaves the mysticism for you to interpret. Still, "Voice of the Fire" is nothing short of magical, gripping, and a true work of art.
