A good book; I read it in one day. The character development was lovely, there was enough action to keep me happy, and the prose was good. Also, Garan = me. However, it is impossible to read the second book in a series and not compare it to the first. Fire did not, in my opinion, match up to Graceling. Fire, the character, was rather whiny, and it seemed she got weaker as the book progressed rather than stronger. The plot was, on the surface, quite different from Graceling, but the romantic subplot was quite similar (wrong guy first, then *spoilers*). I did like the appearance of L---, though. A fast-paced, engaging read, with a lot of good points, but you don't really have to dig very deep to find some annoyances.
