Welcome to book spotlight where instead of giving you another book review, I’m just going to talk about books I’ve read recently that I enjoyed. Prepare yourself for the fangirl gushing.
I’m always on the lookout for a good dragon book. I’ve read my fair share of stories that include stories and there are many I love and many I thought were just okay. So when I stumbled upon Fireborne by Rosaria Munda and absolutely loved it, I eagerly awaited the release of the sequel, Flamefall. It seemed like I waited for this book for ages instead of just a year and a half, but after reading the book, I can definitely say Flamefall was totally worth the wait.
Of course the dragons are just the icing on the cake of the story. Every layer, every detail, every turn of the plot, it’s all so good. This book is both nothing like I anticipated and everything I needed. It just works.
There is just something about these characters, this world, these dragons that spark my inspiration. I didn’t expect to feel so much during this book, but reading this both broke me and patched me back up, giving me hope that despite the chaos and destruction that happens the characters would pull through time and time again. There is a lot that happens in this story, but it’s so well written—well paced, well balanced, well developed. I wish I had written these books myself or could come up with an idea as equal to what Rosaria has created.
It’s both painful and empowering. It’s motivating and wonderful. I love these characters and their stories and their growth. I love the dragons. I hate what happens in this book, especially that freaking ending, but I’m excited and so, so worried to find out what happens next. I need book three NOW.
There is so much more I could say but I don’t feel like I have the words. Griff is my new favorite. I love how strong Annie is. I love what Lee decides to do in this one. I hate their lack of good communication but I love where they stand at the end of this book. It’s like the perfect balance of wanting them together but keeping them apart that doesn’t irk me.
Flamefall is the type of book that I adore so much that I can’t quite articulate what I love so much about it. If I mention one aspect, then I want to mention another and another and another until I’m basically like: I JUST LOVE EVERYTHING. It’s the type of story that I finished and then immediately wanted to pick back up and read again. (Just like I felt after reading Fireborne.) I wanted to continue on with the characters, to continue to explore this world, to continue to ride the dragons. It’s the type of series that totally deserves more recognition than it has received.
