review Wildfire

Wildfire Read & Download ↠ 104 æ The highly anticipated second book in Sarah Micklem’s liter ary fantasy trilogy that began with the critically acclaimed debut FirethornSarah Micklem brings her lush prose and rich imagina tion to the second installment of this epic trilogy set in an imaginary world as real as history and as marvelous as legendSirTo war but she disobeys and sets sail with the army of Corymb to the land of Incus During the crossing Firethorn is struck by lightning She regains consciousness to find her speech garbled and her memory in tatters Despite her injuries others see her as blessed for she has survived the touch of a god Wildfire Priests and soldiers search her nonsensical utterances for hidden propheci. Neither as well written nor as compelling as Firethorn which was at least consistent and coherentIn this second book in a proposed trilogy Firethiorn is not an actor in her own story Lots of things happen TO her; she does very little on her own and much of that is without any clear reason even it seemed like a good idea at the time She rises she falls she rises she falls; she has a completely inexplicable loyalty to a man who cares nothing for her Stockhom syndrome but then I would have expected that to be reflected in the text; she does things that she KNOWS her One True Love will find unforgivable and doesn't even seem to THINK about that; etcAnd the society in which much of this takes place makes little sense Firethorn was a grim world and grimmer for women than men; this one is sheer fantasy but possibly even grimmer; way past realistic and I've given up my hopes for a peasant rebellion I think it may have been based a bit on ancient Greece but I think that degree of acceptance of the horrible deserved a bit of attention from the authorAlso way too many gods To be fair this is why Firethorn's path here makes no sense; the gods are too meddlesome but there's a bit of Mary Sue in there as wellAnd I think it's unreasonable for her to blame every bad decision she made on being god bothered I don't even understand the point of some of it like the aphasia; it didn't seem to have much to do with a coherent plotlineI'll probably read #3 if it ever comes out but I was really disappointed in this one Except for mystical skillz and being god bothered I don't see that this advanced the plot at all nor that these things actually advanced it themselves

It's been SEVEN EIGHT NINE TEN YEARS Micklem You've officially lapsed GRRM and now I want my third book—Edit 122019 Adding this addendum in 2019 to note that while I may sound like a foot stomping baby who wants her third book I am I dearly dearly love this series Wildfire did something I'd never seen in young adult fantasy—with the later exceptions of Fire by Kristin Cashore and Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor—which is to take a richly imagined fantasy universe with an interactive website and profoundly expand its reaches Here's hoping Sarah will make all of us Firethorn fans very happy ducklings someday with a conclusion to this incredible story
