Fire - Kristin Cashore Love, love, loved this book! I enjoyed this book much more than Graceling. I loved the main character, fire, and don't even get me started on my new book boyfriend Brigan!

I wasn't so much sold on Graceling and went into Fire with low expectations. Yet somehow from nowhere this book just grabbed me! I was all of a sudden falling in love with the characters (yes even in a weird way Leck!)and finding myself not wanting to put it down! The way she brought Leck into this book tied Graceling and Fire together really well. In my opinion she pretty much nailed Leck's childhood, so creepy and disturbed.

I loved the relationship of Fire and Brigan. I am positively in love with Brigan. So masculine, gentle, romantic and supportive at the same time. (Just quietly I think I have found my future husband.)

“Brigan was saying her name, and he was sending her a feeling. It was courage and strength, and something else too, as if he were standing with her, as if he'd taken her within himself, letting her rest her entire body for a moment on his backbone, her mind in his mind, her heart in the fire of his.
The fire of Brigan's heart was astounding. Fire understood, and almost could not believe, that the feeling he was sending her was love.”

This book definitely left me wanting more...
