Released 2 yrs ago (12/10/2011 UTC) at Joshua Tree Café, Edmonton Trail in Calgary, Alberta Canada

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I picked this book up at Chapters after I saw who the author was. I read Graceling and loved it! I was so thrilled to see the next book by her and the fact that it takes place in the same world is great. If you haven't read Graceling, don't worry this is a campanion book and actually takes place prior to Graceling. I enjoyed this one but I have to say that I prefer the Gracelings to the Monsters although I really liked Fire as a character, that is just me though.

I'm taking this to the December meeting, this would be a great holiday read. If no one picks it up, it will be left on the bookshelf.

Are you in the Calgary area and interested in meeting up with other Calgary BookCrossers? Please check out our facebook group, "BookCrossing Calgary" for details on how. Meeting are held on the second Saturday of every month at the Joshua Tree Cafe starting at 11am. New Crossers are always welcome.

This was a good read. Found myself wishing I could see what others were thinking and then influence what they did. Would come in really handy as a teacher. Good plot and kept me interested.

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing April meet-up. I was told this is the companion novel to Graceling, so it made sense to snatch up this one, too.

It's interesting how the book isn't a sequel but nor it is a prequel either. I mean, it kind of is, since there's a character in the book who shows up in Graceling, but older, but the main story isn't about them. It's all about Fire. She reminded me a lot of Katsa. Not that she has a Grace to kill people, but she spends most of the story finding a way to control and use her power for good, much like Katsa. It'd be neat if the two of them met in the next book.

Fire and Brigan were a lot like Katsa and Po, though, so it was a bit of a re-hash in that department.

Journal Entry 12 by DendriticTrees at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, December 31, 2013

9 out of 10

I didn't appreciate this book as much as it deserved because I didn't realize until very late in the book that it was a companion novel, not a sequel to Graceling, so I was so busy trying to figure out how the two related that I didn't have as much fun with the book as I could. Its really superb and a very fun read. The concept is really cool and I really felt for Fire.
