'Katherine Neville's The Fire proves once again that she is the true grand master of international intrigue and historical mystery. Relentless, gripping, convoluted, and grand, this is a classic for the new millennium.' James Rollins, author of The Last Oracle
'One of the best novels I've read this year…The Fire is a compulsively readable novel for Da Vinci Code fans, as brilliantly complex as a grand-master chess match. I could not put this book down' Douglas Preston, author of The Monster of Florence
'I've been waiting for twenty years to find out what happened after The Eight. Katherine Neville answers that longing in a story that skilfully moves players around a global chessboard and expertly blends history, science, myth and more.

Could not wait to read this when I found out it existed. The Eight kind of blew my mind about 10 years ago. This however made me feel like it had finished before the climax.Published 18 months ago by Jan
Having thoroughly enjoyed, and re-read, The Eight I was looking forward to the sequel. If you read The Fire without knowing the back-story I think you will enjoy it well enough,... Read morePublished 20 months ago by misty meanor
