Ross review The Fire Mages Brightmoon #2 It was not a bad book just not one I could enjoy The sex and the various always changing relationships were far too prominent I enjoy a nice story about hidden talents and long lost knowledge These aspects exist in this book so I give it two stars instead of one Without the sex and romance it could have been four

Ross This book started very uickly We zoom through about six years in the first 10% or so At that point I was wishing the story would slow down because I didn't feel I was getting a feel for Kyra the main character and because none of the secondary characters were particularly well developed I was disappointed we didn't learn about Kyra's initial training as a scribe and we heard very little about the friends she m

Ross I could not put this book down The pacing was perfect and kept me engaged from beginning to end The writing style was just as phenomenal as I’ve come to expect from Pauline M Ross The main characters were authentic than I think you usually get in fantasy stories but just like Robin Hobb Ross is a master at crafting authentic characters This story had everything I look for in a fantasy novel with action that kept the pages turnin

review The Fire Mages Brightmoon #2 The Fire Mages Brightmoon #2 Free read ☆ 6 A determined girl A cranky mage An unwanted heir A mysterious magical cityKyra’s always been drawn to the magic of spellpages She’s determined to leave her small village far behind and become a scribe wielding the power of magic through her pen But a simple favour for her sis This is a curious story told in the first person by a strangely detached main character of a series of events that put me in mind of a nineteenth century penny dreadful or a silent Perils of Pauline type film Yet it had me gripped right to the end I admit I downloaded it with a half dozen others because it was one of the books close to my own in the rankings it sounded interesting and I wanted to see what was popular Pauline Ross s book was the only one of the lot I read all the way through The others I dumped after the first few pagesI read some of the reviews and although I agree with some of the criticisms I don t necessarily see them as negative points The heroine Kyra wants to be a law scribe Pretty dull ambition I hear you say but Kyra finds some of the nitty gritty of legal stuff fascinating Takes all sorts you say But what she really wants to get to grips with is the magic of spell casting that law scribes are allowed to perform She wants to study with mages and learn how to write out a spell and make it work The story of The Fire Mages is how Kyra discovers her rare talent and how she is thwarted at every turn in her ambition to use it I could hear the frantic Keystone Cops background music playing as she escapes from captivity yet again or as the bonk on the villain s head wears off and the chase begins to tie her up again Yes I agree Kyra does have rather laid back attitudes to abuse violence and the dangers of associating intimately with psychopaths True her male opposites are not prepossessing said psychopath a wimpy bully who turns into a wimpy lover a totally camp escort boy and a middle aged sovereign who tries to enroll her as a concubine when she s thirteen years old True Kyra has zero understanding of human nature falls into the same traps time after time fails to see the most blatant dastardly coup before it slaps her between the eyes makes excuses for or forgives rape kidnap denunciation poisoning murder infanticide you name it she ll just shrug it off with a what the hell Having said all that though I thoroughly enjoyed this book I don t agree that Kyra is dull She isn t kick ass if that s what the critics mean and that s no bad thing in my book She has a strange fascination with her otherworldly detachment her moral code that seems right up the creek her willingness to have sex with men as a sort of therapy because she feels sorry for them because they give her lessons in local history or simply because she s feeling ultra randy and she grabs whatever s within arm s reach There s a deadpan humour to Pauline Ross s writing that saves the rather wacky story from being totally ridiculous Kyra herself has a dry wit that made me laugh on several occasions The characters are rounded memorable and credible for all their weird behaviour In fact I think the psychopath s brigandgangster family is based on East European neighbours we used to have The Fire Mages is a story that doesn t take itself seriously It s a romp not acute psychological drama I would actually like to meet Kyra and I shall probably read of Pauline Ross in the future to catch up on how Kyra s doing

review The Fire Mages Brightmoon #2 The Fire Mages Brightmoon #2 Free read ☆ 6 s surrounded by the greed and ambition of the court uncertain who to trust The answers may lie within the glowing walls of the Imperial City but its magic is strong and the unwary vanish without trace on its streets Kyra will have to learn fast to surviveAlternate cover edition With The Fire Mages Pauline Ross continues the road that began with with The Plains of Kallanash and it s a welcome journey Not that Mages is a seuel blessedly it s a stand alone in a world of fantasy trilogies but not only does it take place in the same world but it contains many of the same delights and manages to come up with a few treats of its own Ross has a way with prose and one never has to re read a sentence or paragraph to figure out what she s talking about the writing is so smooth that it never gets between the reader and the story That s not always easy to do particularly when a story contains as much as Mages Which brings me to my next point Ross comes up with an interesting magic system that is a nod to Daniel Abraham s Long Price series without seeming derivative I think that magic in fantasy is either a metaphor or science by other means in Mages it s the latter but Ross weaves it in neatly with the rest of the world That s also not easy to do and her method provides some neat little twists that had me saying Neat As always Ross lets the story move at its own pace the characters do what comes naturally to them and there s never a hint of the author s hand pressing things along She also keeps things close the characters themselves are the focus of the story and Ross never lets the camera drift away My main complaint with this tale is that there are major events that happen towards the end of the story that seem to come out of nowhere I understand that those things are supposed to surprise the characters but I think that one can surprise the characters while letting the reader in on what s going on behind the scenes In fact that s a great storytelling method in George RR Martin s A Storm of Swords Martin subtly telegraphs the terrible events at the wedding of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey and it keeps the reader on the edge of the seat even though the characters have no idea what s to come Also and I almost never find myself saying this about fantasy I feel as though Mages should be a longer book There are characters and events that are interesting and to my mind demand greater attention but they are relegated almost to a summary I understand a reluctance to enlarge any already formidably sized book but when a story element calls for attention I think an author should provide it regardless of the time it takes All in all I found The Fire Mages an enjoyable read one that kept me close to my Kindle I ll look forward to the next installment because this is one path I ll definitely keep walking
