Soul of the Fire: Soul of the Fire Bk. 5
Soul of the Fire: Soul of the Fire Bk. 5

Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book in the series so far, 9 Mar 2001
End of the previous book, Richard has the Sisters of the Dark and Jagang to deal with. At the end of this book, guess what he still has to deal with....? The author decided he'd better quickly introduce some new problems to keep the main characters busy. I'm beginning to get the feeling that each subsequent book will deal with progressively less and this series turns into a 300 volume special! The content really was poor with reams of pages on uninteresting sub-plots I just skipped past. Suddenly, towards the end of the book we start seeing movement, but you realise with a sinking feeling you're too close to the end of the book to be able to deal with the dangers facing the main characters - cue book 6...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing continuation of the series, 9 Mar 2001
I enjoyed the first 2 or 3 books in this series, but couldn't help but feel the author is getting paid by the word!
There are numerous themes here I've begun to find really irritating. 1. Why hasn't Richard had the time to be trained in his gift? 2. Why does it take him so long to get to become intimate with Kahlen? This is beyond suspense, it's just painful. 3. Why is Zedd always incapacitated so he can't help Richard? etc

1.0 out of 5 stars Readable but disappointing, 28 Sep 2000
Bought this book to read on holiday having read the previous three books. Found it very disappointing being left with the feeling that Ms Furey wanted to finish the book as quickly as possible. The grand finale was concluded within about five pages. Have recommended that my hubbie (who has also read the previous three) not to bother with this one.
