Fire Study - Book Review

Fire Study (Study #3)
by Maria V. Snyder

What is it about:
When word that Yelena is a Soulfinder—able to capture and release souls—spreads like wildfire, people grow uneasy. Already Yelena's unusual abilities and past have set her apart. As the Council debates Yelena's fate, she receives a disturbing message: a plot is rising against her homeland, led by a murderous sorcerer she has defeated before....

Honor sets Yelena on a path that will test the limits of her skills, and the hope of reuniting with her beloved spurs her onward. Her journey is fraught with allies, enemies, lovers and would-be assassins, each of questionable loyalty. Yelena will have but one chance to prove herself—and save the land she holds dear.

What did I think of it:
A fitting conclusion to a wonderful trilogy.

Poison Study is my absolute favorite book in this trilogy, but Fire Study is a close second.

All the things about Yelena's behaviour that annoyed me in Magic Study are gone and I rooted for her the entire time. There's lots of adventure and action and even though I could sniff out the bad guy long before the big reveal I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I really like how the relationships between Yelena and those around her developed and changed over the cause of the entire trilogy and how Snyder succeeded in making me fall in love with characters I hated at first.

I can advise this trilogy to everyone who loves a good Fantasy. I will most certainly read lots more books by Snyder in the future.

Why should you read it:
Go read Poison Study and you will know why ;-)
