I very much enjoyed both “Steal the Sky” and “Break the Chains.” “Inherit the Flame” did not disappoint, as it continues in the same vein as its predecessors with an action-filled, entertaining continuation of the story.
I appreciated Detan’s growth into responsibility – and liked that it didn’t come easily (or completely). Here, he’s trying to be a double agent – and to gain control over is potentially-deadly abilities. His schemes end up with him arriving back at his homestead, Hond Steading, having to face his formidable aunt with the fact that he’s engaged to be married to his worst enemy – and possibly the biggest threat to his homeland.
Of course, there’s more than one threat. The oasis of peace and civilization that is Hond Steading looks more likely than not to be ripped apart between them.
Fans of the first two books will find all their favorite characters here. There’ll be some moments of heartbreak as well as fun – but it’s a must-read if you’re following the story! If you aren’t – yet – I highly recommend picking up ‘Steal the Sky’ and getting into it.
Many thanks to Angry Robot for the review copy.
