The Secrets of a Fire King by Kim Edwards
Author: Kim Edwards
Author Website: None found
The cover art on this looks good, the synopsis sounds interesting. It came as a surprise to find that each chapter was a stand alone piece about someones life. The first two I found beautiful to read, vivid in their descriptions and extremely rich with the depth from the characters. The third chapter was a little harsher to read and dealt with morality. I couldn't read any further after this point. I just couldn't get into the fourth chapter and felt it was a great shame that the characters weren't as rich and although their lives were interesting, it was not captivating enough for me to want to continue.
Disappointed, as I had high hopes after judging it by the cover and by the given synopsis. I've given it the rating I have as the first three chapters are well worth reading, very in depth and the characters are written with a lot of feeling.
