Reviews - What do customers think about Crimson Fire (Dreamer's Cycle)?
Crimson Fire Apr 11, 2008
This book goes way beyond a typical fantasy - the characters that we were introduced to in Night Birds' Reign are put in situations that are both suspenseful and heartbreaking. The plot is not black and white and neither are the people. Ms. Taylor masterfully brings us into her created kingdoms with passion and understanding. Although the setting is fanciful, the behavior of the characters is believable and true. From the first gripping chapter to the last, I literally couldn't put it down. Well done.
Great story continues to build Apr 10, 2008
Crimson Fire builds on the strong promise of Night Birds' Reign and continues to deliver a crackling good story. As a previous poster wrote, the villain is a superb addition to the colorful cast of characters. In fact, "color" characterizes a lot of this series -- a beautifully realized fantasy world that glows with color and life. The plot takes twists and turns and heads off in surprising directions, and the reader is along for a thrilling ride.
A New Twist on a Classic Genre Mar 16, 2008
Holly's done it again. Where Night Bird's Reign introduced us to the world of Kymru and told a classic tale of a quest, Crimson Fire builds upon this foundation and delivers a story that's even more of a page-turner.
With the fate of the country of Kymru in the balance, Crimson Fire is a fantasy cloak-and-dagger story of deception, intrigue, and struggle with spy elements woven throughout. Filled with narrow escapes and heart-pounding suspense, it brilliantly retains the elements of an excellent fantasy novel while breathing new life into the way the story can unfold. In this second novel of the series, the characters become even more fleshed out as we delve deeply into their motivations, desires, and secret burdens. A great read.
It Grabs You Feb 18, 2008
This book grabs you from the first and never lets go. The prologue makes you realize you aren't in for the usual fantasy. I can truly say that the villain is a someine I haven't seen in fiction before - definitely not a stock character. I enjoyed the first book, but the excitement and emotion in this one brings it to a new level. I can't wait for the next one!
Electric, Entertaining, Captivating Nov 17, 2007
Crimson Fire, the sequel to Night Bird's Reign, is even better than the first book. The rich detail and epic story make this a book that is difficult to put down. Havgan, Gwydion and Rhiannon, three of the main characters, are fascinating personalities with depth and complexity, yet are likable and easy to relate to.
Crimson Fire takes you on an extended adventure started in Night Bird's Reign. As in the first book, the ending leaves you wanting more and I can hardly wait to see what happens in book 3, Cry of Sorrow!
