Fire Study: The Study Trilogy 3

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Teaser: Yelena is back as the liaison between Sitia and Ixia, that is until someone or something drives the council officially against her and sends her running back to Ixia with her brother Leif in tow. Will she keep her neutral ground as she seeks to clear the new obstacles in her way? Or will she find her self on the wrong side of her comrades? All the while Yelena is discovering that her magic is more powerful than anyone could have imagined and that her capabilities are endless and terrifying.

Short Thought: Not as great as the first two novels, but an entertaining end to an interesting fantasy adventure trilogy.

Expanded Thoughts: I was very excited to read this conclusion to the trilogy. I was hoping for a blast. I did think it was entertaining, but it most certainly did not live up to the first two novels. Some parts were wonderful and others I found myself getting annoyed. We did get to see what happens to certain characters, and even get a peak into their future, but other characters who were important in the previous novels become lost and many never develop.

All that being said, it was entertaining. It was a nice, easy read. A good TV substitute, but nothing spectacular.

Additional Notes: This is the third book of the Study Trilogy by Maria V. Snyder.
