    This is the second episode of Faan s story, as she searches for her mother, control of her powers, and her own agency separate from the gods that toy with her It suffers from a problem common to many a Book 2 of an old school fantasy trilogy it s the middle, and nothing much gets resolved.Indeed, as with the first book, Wildfire is a product of its time The reader is plunged into the world with many unfamiliar words and customs and left to find her own way much as Faan herself is There s This is the second episode of Faan s story, as she searches for her mother, control of her powers, and her own agency separate from the gods that toy with her It suffers from a problem common to many a Book 2 of an old school fantasy trilogy it s the middle, and nothing much gets resolved.Indeed, as with the first book, Wildfire is a product of its time The reader is plunged into the world with many unfamiliar words and customs and left to find her own way much as Faan herself is There s much rich worldbuilding and some things that aren t quite explained well enough, but it feels like a very real, complex and lived in place.Faan has immense powers, but they are handled perfectly she s a flawed adolescent struggling to make sense of it without teen angst, mind , and it s as much a curse as a blessing This is an example of book where being a Chosen One really works, and it feels vital and alive even to a modern reader.The main problem with Wildfire is that much of the book is taken up with the city wide conspiracy which tumbles Faan and her new fate tangled acquaintances into trouble This would be fine if they were involved in the continuance and untangling of the plot, but instead, the two storylines diverge I never felt as if I was given any reason to care about the succession struggle going on in the city I wasn t bored by it, but I wasn t invested in it, either.That said, there are some great snapshot character portrayals, and the plot thread involving Navarre and his significant other, Kitya, has some really interesting elements I m curious to finish the series and see how it all ties up

    I tried reading this one when I was a kid and just did not understand it AT ALL I understood it so little I can t even really say what it was about, except that some powerful woman mage loses her baby daughter, who then turns up almost in another world where a gender ambiguous person adopts and raises her The girl has some powers that becomeandtroublesome as she grows and after I could be misremembering something something bad happens, she has to leave and find instruction Somet I tried reading this one when I was a kid and just did not understand it AT ALL I understood it so little I can t even really say what it was about, except that some powerful woman mage loses her baby daughter, who then turns up almost in another world where a gender ambiguous person adopts and raises her The girl has some powers that becomeandtroublesome as she grows and after I could be misremembering something something bad happens, she has to leave and find instruction Something like that Maybe if I tried reading it now I d love it and understand it without a problem, but when I was younger, it was totally impenetrable
