When they trimmed the numbers down again through fights, and offscreen deaths , and we got a bit of an info dump, this settled back down into the same good story as in the first half. I would have also liked to have seen a bit more done with the book's "villain" Gaston he borders on being the 'big bad' of the book, and a side-quest threat. Particularly his relationship to the boy Carver--granted, I'm a sucker for mentor-student relationships, so it's probably just me who felt it was rushed. I'm hoping for view spoiler [Carver's return with Sigmund.
Maybe I'll get that father-son relationship there! XD hide spoiler ] The biggest disappointment, and the only one that left me scowling, would probably be the ending. Kaijin reaching his destination, and his deal with the Firelord was all well and good, but I'm talking specifically about Zaraya and her fate. When the novel spends so much time view spoiler [building up a possible romance between her and the oblivious Kaijin, having Zaraya dropped like a bad egg in the last chapter for a random new girl we've just met was jarring.
I'm crossing my fingers for her return in book three, so she can sweep Kaijin away, but it's looking like the new girl is it. I am all on board for book 3 when it's released. View 2 comments.

It's one world that I would love to visit! I was captivated the entire time by the world - it seemed so beautiful and mysterious throughout the book, and I absolutely loved that. And our characters are equally as great! Kaijin was a great main character, and I loved getting to know him and his backstory. Fire is pretty epic. And the way his inner flames spark to life was super, super awesome.
I was definitely impressed of how the author mixed that into the story and made it fantastic. Overall, Firebrand is a must-read for fantasy lovers. Think Game of Thrones for teens. It was absolutely wonderful! Sep 15, Sarah Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked it alright, and might read the sequel is there a sequel?
I think it's a bit bizarre that he never once visited his parents or brother in all those years, even though they lived in the same city. For some reason that's the big issue I have with this book, lol. View 2 comments. Aug 12, Jericho Eames rated it really liked it Shelves: the-ones-i-have.
The story, though slow at the start, was pretty good. Kaijin always is the curious boy and Jarial is a cold-hearted son of a gun. I am undecided on how fast the story came to a close, honestly, I've not read a book so fast since Divergent. I think it's not bad. Ah memories…. May 27, Jace Ferguson rated it liked it.
This is a well written and edited story. The pacing is a bit awkward. It starts off slow, but starts to take large jumps in time and then speeds through the ending. Overall, the story was good and the pacing awkwardness is easy to overlook. Aug 29, Angela demonsangel Fitzgerald rated it it was amazing Shelves: audible-audio-book.
