In a world with so many power-heroines, I was refreshed to find some that actually seem real! The main charicter, Fire, may be a monster, but she has the same issues and feelings as humans often do. Her struggles and emotions are portrayed beautifully in this novel. It touches on the subject of sex in a fantasy setting, though not to graphically.I loved the strongly portrayed charicters and great word use.
This book was creative imaginative, and emotional. It's on the brink of fantasy, with enough real-world connections and relationships to be relatable. It's a great weekend read. This book deals with the subject of death, but it's not to "heavy" or deep. I think that it mixes fantasy/sci-fi with rational, real world situations, and that makes for a good mix!
I found this book to be dull and redundant, lacking content and creativity. I feel like the author was trying too hard to write disturbing stories and ignoring the quality of her writing. Overall, the concepts of the stories seem good, but I would have liked to see more interesting dialouge and problem/solution plots.
The most enjoyable part of this book was the sources section at the end. If you need to know who provided a picture of someone hugging an elephant, this is where you need to go. Sadly, I had to laugh at that. The only part of this book worth your precious time.
