it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, ya

Kristin Cashore is now officially in a knock-down, drag-out fight for the title of "Favorite Fantasy Author Ever." I absolutely loved Graceling, and had very high expectations for Fire which were not disappointed. I adored Graceling for Katsa, its strong, capable, independent, vulnerable, and amazing main character. Fire, the prequel/companion's main character, is every bit as strong, vulnerable, amazing, etc. as Katsa, and yet the two characters could not have been more different. The two books feel connected, and you can definitely tell that they were written by the same author, but the plots and characters and settings are wholly new and intriguing. An incredible achievement by Cashore, in my opinion. She's no one-trick pony, and I'm waiting with bated breath for her next installment. In the battle for the title of Favorite Fantasy Author Ever, I can only hope that Kristin Cashore and Suzanne Collins keep sending new work my way so I never actually have to make the final call!
