I bought this book after reading Dragonborn to my relectant reader 11 year old. Once I started Fireborn I couldn't put it down and enjoyed every minute. If anything I enjoyed it more than Dragonborn. Whilst it answers many of the questions from the first book it could stand alone and be read by itself. It would still be an enjoyable read and nothing is really assumed to be already known. I would recommend this to anyone. I haven't yet read it to my child but I know it will be loved - it ticks so many boxes and like the first book has a complicated plot that surprises. Can't wait for the next one.

Format: Paperback
Toby Forward is on fire with this second book in his Flaxfield Quartet. It reveals the back story to his first utterly brilliant book, Dragonborn, but can be read as a stand alone book.

I loved it - from the lyrically poetic descriptions of place, to the sharp, pithy dialogue (much of it laugh out loud funny). Then there were moments were I had tears in my eyes. For example, when Bee asks Flaxfold whether she is ugly, Flaxfold's reply made me WEEP.

There are strong male characters and equally strong female characters. Friendships play a central role, and an understanding of how courage and bravery may take unusual forms. It is a moral book without ever once moralising.

I read it very quickly and, usually, when I read at this speed, little sticks. But it was when I discussed the book with my son (we'd wrestled over who got to read it first) that I realised just how much the characters had got under my skin and taken root. Mattie - O, Mattie! I don't want to say too much about him in case it spoils the story for anyone who hasn't yet read Fireborn. (And, if you haven't, what are you waiting for?!) But if Mr Forward takes so much care with even the most minor characters, then you know you are in the hands of a VERY good writer.

Interwoven with the gripping, fast-moving plot are sub-stories about the magical abilities of blacksmiths, how fields should be scythed to retain their strength, and how the first mirror came into being.

As an adult reader, I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written book but my teenage son also loved it. Only one question: how long must we wait for book three ...?

Format: Paperback
We've been waiting for this to come out ever since the whole family read and loved the last one, Dragonborn. The characters are well crafted and the plot keeps you hooked right the way through. You could easily read this without having read Dragonborn first and it stands on its own merits as a wonderful book, but you'd be missing out on another great story. The only down side is that we're already half way through the quartet. Still can't wait for the next one though.

Order this book, curl up on the settee and lose yourself in this enchanting story of magic, friendship and sacrifice interwoven with adventure and folklore. It is beautifully written, moving, funny and pacey. I couldn't read the last half quickly enough as Cabbage, Flaxfield and the gang race to defeat the Dark Magic. I would recommend this book to adults and children.
