Review of ‘The Fire Seekers’ by Richard Farr

This book had a really cool mythology/archeology/supernatural angle! Now that the X-Files is back on screen, people should delve into this book and get their fix of conspiracy and ancient lore in this wonderful story written by Richard Farr.

Admittedly, it was a bit too ‘Fast & Furious’ for me at some point… meaning a lot of multi-talented teenagers were crammed into this one book. Literally all the main characters were amazing climbers, divers, pilots, fighters, hackers, linguists and whatnot, but I definitely think young adult fans of Dan Brown would enjoy this title. I surely did – I was really hooked on this book for a few days straight.

Good news for fans of culinary descriptions: Daniel, the main character, also happens to be some kind of master chef. It truly got me hungry at some point to read about the lush dishes this guy was preparing for his family and friends. I, too, want Daniel to prepare me some pepper-crushed wild Alaskan salmon with purple spinach leaves and tralala sauce 😉

I can’t wait for the sequel, which should be out somewhere this year.

Now Drake has stolen the package Aisling was sent to deliver, and she must track him down, get the package, and try to resist the passion boiling inside her.
  • Written in Red by Anne Bishop

    As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she’s keeping a secret, and second, she doesn’t smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she’s wanted by the government, he’ll have to decide if she’s worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.
