    1. (Received an ARC from the author)Surprisingly political! So once again I very much enjoyed the latest Brightmoon book. Pauline Ross has a skill for writing very real people and Drina is no exception. I like that she's abrasive manipulative and, well, spoiled as a child, and she grows from it. I like that I don't automatically like her as a person. I like the consistent application of "non-traditional" relationships as part of the stories. The whole idea of "drusse" is fascinating in particular. [...]

    2. Thrilled to Read this!Okay, I have two things judgment here; one, I have read all of the books in the series, two, I was given an Advanced Readers copy, an ARC , for a genuine review of this book. The only reason I got the copy was because I wanted to read it months before it came out. I pre-ordered the book myself before it ever came out .I absolutely love this author. Her books are long and I wish they were longer. The books are deep, really, really deep. This is not a bit of fluff to read . A [...]

    3. I received an ARC copy of this novel, but I will be buying my own copy to add to lending stash. I can't wait to share this one!Ross writes such lovely characters. They are never flat, never tropes. Drina is an unusual addict, and I loved watching her grow from spoiled and sheltered to determined and powerful. This book follows one my favorite books, so I had high expectations that were met in spades. Some of my favorite characters turn up again here, but you don't need have read the first book i [...]

    4. MagnificentOnce again Pauline has written another outstanding book. I couldn't put it down. Truly a wild imagination with a different type of characters with war,magic,sex, politics either sex would enjoy her books! Anxiously, awaiting for "Dragon Egg" and the sequel "The Second God".

    5. I liked the overall story. The writing style is good, but not great. I thought there was too much romance and sex that took away from the main story.

    6. The Fire Mages' Daughter is the follow-up to, well, The Fire Mages, set in Pauline Ross's Brightmoon World. Fire Mages is one of my favorite books in this loosely-connected series, and I enjoyed The Fire Mages' Daughter just as much.Drina, the daughter of Kyra and stepdaughter of Cal, is another one of Ms. Ross's strong-willed young women. Drina is a sickly child, dependent on her mother's magic, when the Drashona, ruler of Bennamore and wife (I believe; the relationships in these books can get [...]

    7. I give this book three out of five stars for being an entertaining read with competing magic systems and atypical representations of women in power and leadership positions. What I like about the book:1) Ross has a consistent style with ideas that construct vivid cultures, magic, and fantastical societies. I can count on this author for breathing new life into old ideas or showcasing things new and different ways. 2) This is a strong feminist piece, yet I don’t think the author intends it to b [...]

    8. I enjoyed this book so much I finished it in two days. It's well-paced, exciting and has a wonderfully deep world. The protagonist Drina is a driven, multi-faceted character. The whole book has a positivity that's refreshing after reading a lot of grimdark.

    9. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I'm not sure what the page count for this book is compared to The Fire Mages, but this one felt shorter, primarily I think because a lot of the world building was established. I was very happy to see old characters return, and loved a lot about this book.My only real complaint is about Drina's love life. I did not like Arran, and unfortunately it seems he shall return in the sequel. My dislike for him has to do with how he treats Drina. At first she's a meal tic [...]

    10. While certain aspects of the book fell flat, the world building and magic included was amazing! I really enjoyed the politics involved and found it very fascinating. I have no idea how I didn't know this was a part of a larger series, but now I'll be going back to the beginning to read more!

    11. Great story!Loved this! Magic, eagle mounts, blood spirit beasts, oh my! The protagonist, Drina, is a multi-faceted character who keeps the story intriguing and eventful. Despite discovering how she USUALLY reacts in stressful situations, there are times she completely surprises you. It isn't an over-the-top character change; just Drina growing and learning. Her magical "ability" is a concept I never would've thought of! Such a good idea! She has a so-called "love triangle" but it isn't what you [...]

    12. LyChose this rating because this book is an attention grabber such that once started it must be read through. Anyone interested in mage magic should read this book.

    13. The key thing I found useful was to re-read the Fire Mage's novel, as it gave so much background. It definitely helps if you have read the previous books in the series, but that one in particular. I did enjoy it, and I didn't quite see some of the twists, but overall a good book which I enjoyed reading.

    14. Just as good as the first, with less betrayal (which I love)I was a bit disappointed by this in the beginning. I couldn't begin to see how all the drusse and husband-marriage Mumbo jumbo was going to work out. But I'm glad it did, in a form that made sense. I struggled to put it down every time.

    15. Love this fantasy seriesMagic and images and spellings. Such a rich story with any number of unexpected twists and turns. So unpredictable. Drinas choices always surprise me. And I love hervrelationshipcwith her mother.

    16. Fantasy with intriguing court politics High fantasy story with intriguing native populations. Magee, power stealers, unique family affiliations provide a rich and nuanced backdrop for a powerful storyline

    17. I really enjoyed the cultural aspect of the writer's world and the writing was well done. I'm not sure that I felt a big building or climax for the plotline, however it was still enjoyable.
