I’m more of a fantasy reader usually, which means that I absolutely LOVED Lindskold’s Firekeeper series! However, when I learned that her newest series also had intelligent animal companions, I decided to give it a try. Turns out, Lindskold is just as talented at science fiction writing as fantasy. I was immediately pulled in by the characters and think that Lindskold kept good pacing with exposition, world building, and action. Here’s what you need to know!
Strong female lead character
Intelligent animal companions
Interesting, intriguing backstory and world building
Relationships have time to develop realistically
It’s the first in a series
Choice of plot device (no spoilers here)
Strange “mechanical” blurbs at the end of chapters
Obviously, the pros outweigh the cons 🙂 Mostly the “mechanical” blurbs were lost on me when I read them, but they did make sense the further I read into the story. I am definitely excited for the next book!
I had my brother-in-law pick up a copy of this title when the author had a signing in Albuquerque, NM. At about the same time, I was in communication with the author regarding bookplates, which she graciously agreed to sign. And shortly thereafter, I won the final prize in her contest, and I received an uncorrected proof of the sequel, signed of course!
