5.0 out of 5 stars A hot new futuristic tale! 6 Mar 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kathleen Nance is a writer that just gets better and better with each novel. Each book amazes me how much control and depth she imbues her book with, making them stand out head and shoulders above the pack. She has been writing two series lines for Dorchester Publishing's Lovespell - the Djinns and the Immortals. Djinns are not your “I Dream of Jeannie” djinns, but strong, sensual characters that keep popping into the mortal world for one reason another. And Nance seems very adapt at creating the two worlds for readers. The Immortals as the children of the Ancient Greek Gods, who are doomed to unhappy lives unless they fall in love with another of these children. Both lines are brilliant conceived, and the world and laws within both take place are amazing. For a writer to be successful in creating alternative/fantasy worlds, they have to SEE it in their minds. If they cannot see, smell, taste and breathe these other worlds, their readers won’t either. But Nance is one of the best at this sort of magic.
This new book “Day of Fire” is her first step away from her Djinns and Immortals. I know of few fans will be at first disappointed it's not an Immortal or Djinn - and we will all hope she will return to theses series one day soon. However, they will be floored by this new work. It’s is her BEST work yet, and it leaves the reader breathless from first page to the last.
It is the second book in a series of at least five - the first being powerhouse Susan Grant with “The Legend of Bonzai Maguire”. Nance’s “Day of Fire” finds Day Daniel’s as female Mountie in Canada in the year 2176. From first page to last, she keeps you riveted unable to put this book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Futurist Novel by Kathleen Nance 31 May 2004
By Ms Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Day of Fire" is the second book in a five book series set in the year 2176. "The Legend of Banzai McGuire," by Susan Grant, was the first of the five books, and introduced the premise that the world has changed greatly since the 21st century due to a series of wars and plagues. The old political boundaries have disappeared, to be replaced by nation-states -- Canada has been isolated from the rest of the world due to repeated smallpox epidemics. Recently, someone known as the Shadow Voice has been broadcasting calls to revolution all over the world, including Canada.
"Day of Fire" skillfully recounts the story of Day Daniels, a 22nd century member of the Canadian Mounties, and her uneasy partnership with Lian Firebird, a plague hunter. Kathleen Nance is an excellent story teller -- she draws the reader in immediately with Day's almost humorous encounter with some college students who take over a huge concrete sculpture of a moose in order to broadcast a message from the Shadow Voice. The encounter quickly turns dangerous and deadly and Day looses her partner to a murderer. On an order from the Prime Minister, Day and Lian become partners so they can discover the person or group who wants to unlease a new plague on Canada.
While the action comes fast and furious, Nance also explores the at first uneasy partnership that is spiced with a strong sexual attraction. Both Day and Lian have baggage from the past that could keep them apart in the future; unlike far too many novels of this type, the conflicts are realistic and not just the result of a contrived misunderstanding. Day and Lian are fully developed characters, and the author also has created memorable secondary charcters as well. This is a much more detailed and complex work than Grant's "Legend of Banzai McGuire" which lead off the series, which is why I rated it as 5 stars and "Banzai McGuire" with 4 stars. Nance has a good ear for dialogue and also a writing style that contains details this reader enjoys in a futurist novel (hockey is still the national sport of Canada & just as prone to violence as it is today, for example).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Journey Continues... 10 May 2004
By A. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second of five books in the "2176 Series" and a SMASHING sequel to Banzai's story.
This is the story of Day Daniels (orphan turned Mountie) and Lian Firebird (exiled doctor turned Plague Hunter).
Before I continue, let me share a little bit of info about their chosen careers. Mounties and Plague Hunters don't exactly see eye to eye on certain matters. Laws being the main one and weather to break them for the greater good (Plague Hunters) or uphold them no matter what (Mounties).
Now, I'll continue...
Lian and Day are thrown together on a case that is the same, but seen from two VERY different angles. The case of the murder of Day's partner, and the NEW virus (Lian's Dept.) found on the partner's hat.
Will Day and Lian solve their respective cases before the Prime Minister's SHOCKING announcement? Or will everything they've gone through be absolutely useless? These are just a couple of questions that ran through my mind as I read this installment of the continuing saga of "2176."
With all the pulse-racing and passion filled plot points, you'll be reluctant to put the book down for any reason. This is once again, a page-turning, action-packed, "I don't WANNA put it down right now" kind of story.
As I said in my review of Banzai's story, this is a series destined for my personal library shelves. Yes folks, another keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars loved it! 25 Aug 2004
By M. Cookson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The year is 2176, and Canada has been closed off from the world by a quarantine for over a century. The quarantine will soon be coming to an end, if nothing goes wrong. Day Daniels is a Mounty and Lian Firebird is a plague hunter: plague hunters and Mounties traditionally don't get along. Still, after the two are put together as partners, they can't help but be attracted to one another. Day is invetigating the death of her previous partner, a case which overlaps with Liam's. The killer of Day's former partner is planning on releasing a mutated strain of smallpox in Canada, resulting in many deaths and the country's continued quarantine.

Out of all the 2176 books, I've only read The Legend of Banzai Maguire and this one. I have to say, I much prefer this book. The main characters have some real chemistry, and the action is fun. Kathleen Nance really brings this world alive. My biggest complaint is that the story sometimes feels slow, but this is really a very good book. The only reason I'm giving it a four is because I've read Kathleen Nance's other books, and I think she could have done better. While Liam was really well-developed as a character, there were things about Day that I thought would get fleshed-out more that were never really touched on much. Still, Liam is wonderful, and Day manages to have vulnerabilities and still kick butt, something that I didn't feel Susan Grant managed too well with Banzai Maguire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be all that you can be ! Get this book. 12 May 2004
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
DAY OF FIRE is the next book in the 2176 series. The first is the LEGEND OF BANZAI MACGUIRE, This book is just as good as the first.
Day Daniels is a RCMP, she is a survivor of the bio-plagues that were unleashed on Canada. She is tough, determined, and very stubborn about the Law she serves.
Lian Firebird is a doctor who has had to face the tragedy of losing his family, as well as fighting for the survival of the citizens of Canada. He also has some very important friends, and some very unusual secrets. He is with Health Canada, an agency that seems to compete with the Mounties for tax money.
Both are strong characters who must find a way to work together. The first thing they have to do is trust each other (easier said than done).
Canada has been quarantined for more than a century. She has had to survive alone.
Kathleen Nance has given us a very believable world. IT is very fine tuned. So many things we take for granted, they have to re-invent in their isolation.
Day is assigned to work with Lian. She is determined to find the killer of her partner Luc.
From the first page to the last we follow a trail of action and adventure as well as a romance.
I loved it and look forward to the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must read for sci-fi romance fan. 28 May 2004
By Pippin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in this series. It's well written and more serious then The Legend of Banzai Maguire. You must read Banzai's book first, or you'll be a little lost at first. This book is a great middle for the series. I love it. Could not put it down!
