Resolve isn't enough to protect any of them and Nya soon realizes that the only way to keep them all out of the Duke's clutches is to flee Geveg Unfortunately the Duke's best tracker has other ideasNya finds herself trapped in the last place she ever wanted to be forced to trus. It was great After my enthusiasm for The Shifter was unshared by my family I got worried that I wouldn t be impressed with the seuel now that the magic system was less novel maybe I would realize that the rest of the book wasn t as fun as I thought I shouldn t have worried Though the magic is still a strong selling point there were many other things that I like in Blue Fire Topping the list is humor The whole story is told with a wry and endearingly understated wit It is easy to share Nya s optimism when one is smiling at her clever jibes I also love Nya for her capabilities and her fallibility Nya is uick on the uptake figuring out everything that the reader does She is resourceful and bold taking things on the fly with only in fiction audacity At the same time she has emotions that not only merit description but also interfere with her judgment even when she doesn t realized it Hardy does an excellent job of giving her first person narrator coherent consistent responses that are believable but clearly irrationalI really like the way this book examines a number of ubiuitous genre assumptions For example one rescue attempt involves grappling hooks and shinnying up ropes These ropes and spikes however are subject to real world physics and employed by less than miraculously adept adventurers They become utilitarian objects rather than a lazy trope to get our heroes on or off the roof In another example fight scene banter is so painfully melodramatic that the characters can t help but wince they know it sounds dumb but it s the best they can come up with under pressureI also enjoy the very uick pacing of the story Things happen uickly with little time for ruminations in between Talking and even thinking are not free actions Nya and her friends are freuently interrupted or surprised when their time and attention are focused on explanation or decision making The uick pace in part means that Nya can struggle with moral dilemmas but not agonize over them The book does not explore the moral issues that it raises and many are bypassed entirely but at least for me it brushes up against enough uestions to send my thoughts in the right directionsI am a bit disappointed that Hardy does not explore the magic system as much as I had expected her to but she does make good use of it And instead of expanding on the uirkers and their abilities Hardy chooses to fill out other aspects of her world There is a well developed culture history and structure behind what the reader sees even though little of it manifests directly in the bookI m looking forward to reading the next one
