The Wind on Fire trilogy is truly wonderful. In the Publishing Aftermath of the enormous success of the Harry Potter books, many less great books have been published, with Potter-esque storylines, and other assorted fantasy elements. Most of these books are terrible. The Wind on Fire trilogy stands out among these. It is obviously not trying to cash in on Potter's success, and it is original and far more epic than Potter. The first book works on many levels. It is a enthralling adventure, layered with myth and magic. It was also part satire, with much comedy and brilliant character detail. The second book far topped it, with inspired new characters such as the princess Sisi, and wonderful developments of already known characters. It also had astonishing locations, such as the Mastery compound and scenes of pure tension, such as the final attack and Bo's confrontation with the Master. I thought there was no way the first two books could be topped. And then I picked up Firesong.
It surpasses the first two books hugely. It manages to contain as much of the thrilling action of the first two, while acquiring an emotional edge, which culminates in a finale which would draw tears from the most hard-hearted of readers. It is beautiful and poetic, and the entire book is full of sly jokes, metaphors, and clever imagery, brilliantly evoked by Nicholson's warm, generous writing style. It is a masterful, magical, totally compelling conclusion to a trilogy which is distinctive, original, and will hopefully join the ranks of modern fantasy classics.

'The Wind On Fire' trilogey is my all time favourite when it comes to fantasy books. It consists of 3 books, 'The Wind Singer', 'Slaves of the mastery', and 'Firesong'.
It follows the tale of two twins, Kestrel and Bowman, children of the prophet Ira Manth and they are gifted with special powers of the Singer people. It also follows the story of the rest of their family and the Manth people from the city of Aramanth, who always manage to stick together no matter what. I'm not going to give the plot away, you'll find it out for yourself.
They are extremely imaginative and easy to understand. The only bad thing about it is that once you start reading it, you can't put it down!!! And even after you've read them once you'll probabily end up reading it again and again.
Adults and children alike will find this book great fun to read and you'll probabily find yourself crying with sadness at some parts and with happiness and laughter at others. I give these books an all time high of 10/10 (and I only give these in exceptional circumstances!!!)

From the very first moment in 'The Wind Singer' I was enthralled. William Nicholson writes unlike any other author, creating characters you really love or hate.
But 'Firesong' has to be my favourite out of the three. I though the journey to the homeland was well written and was fraught with just the right amount of hidden dangers and unexpected joys. What Bo and Kestrel learn from Albard is magical and is magically told. The end of the book left me sobbing for Kestrel, Ira and all the characters I love. In 'Firesong' William Nicholson has created a world of wonder that cannot fail to enchant!

My brother and I read these books not so long ago and found them absolutely amazing! Nicholson truely is a genius at work.I reccomend these books to anyone, however we think that anyone under a reading age of around 12 might struggle with some possible complexities in the books.But my brother, who is quite advanced in his reading, read them at 10, and probably grasped the concept better than me!Over all the books are really a brilliant read and I would advise everyone to get a copy now.Some say it has'nt got anything on Harry Potter, but i found it a pleasant escape from the cliches of J.K Rowling.Fantastic!

These books are a fantastic read for all ages (my mum loved them too!) The way the books were written I could almost feel what the characters were going through, and I couldn't wait to find out what happened to them all.
