The result of all these thoughts was Daughter of the Flames, a rather unusual book about war, and love, and about learning to judge people by what they do.

He did things he deserved righteous justice for. I still can't call him evil. I also genuinely enjoyed the side characters. They didn't feel flat and I loved Rashna. She was strong, opinionated and most of the time thought Zahira was stupid. Haha but she had that loyalty that I can see her becoming friends with Zahira.

In the far far future.

I wouldn't say there was any massive plot twists but the world building was incredible. Her descriptions of everything so vivid. The landscapes, towns, clothing, foods. I could see everything and I don't get that too often. Her races were well created and there was that racism and tension that was incorporated well. Things didn't just fall into place. Plus with no useless drama and no love triangles I am quite happy with this book.

I shall definitely be reading Ruan 2 though I think it has nothing to do with these characters, just set in the same world. I'm glad I decided to read through this one. So I was happy to see it pop up on my Cybils reading list. This was my first novel by Ms. Marriott and I was both looking forward to giving a new author a shot and in the mood for some more traditional fantasy. It's also worth it to point out the rather lovely cover this novel sports. The flames and curlicues are swirlingly lovely, enough so that the fact that Zira doesn't look quite as I pictured her isn't any kind of stumbling block at all.

Zira is a trained warrior.

Daughter of the Flames () - IMDb

A novice with a face full of scars and a forgotten past, she perches right on the cusp of her sixteenth birthday. At the same time she anxiously awaits her superior's decision on whether she will join the ranks of the namoa or be sent to tend the temple livestock for the rest of her days. Born a Rua, Zira belongs to a conquered people. The Sedorne rulers overran the peaceful country of Ruan and the current king, Abheron, rules with an iron fist, encouraging his lords to crush the Rua under their feet.

But behind the deceptively peaceful temple walls, rebellion is in the wind. When a surprising series of events lead Zira to save a young Sedorne lord's life, she is set on the path that will lead her to places she never expected, where, frankly, she would rather die than set foot. But it is Zira's fate to be more than she is, to combine the hopes and fears of two races in one body, and to be savior to a nation. I was drawn in very quickly. There are all kinds of familiar fantasy elements at play here that Marriott handled quite well, wrapping them up in a nice bit of world building, full of heady descriptions of cuisine, vegetation, and light and shadow that had me salivating and oohing and ahhing at will.

Zira's past is appropriately murky and, when it comes to light, it is in no way surprising. Marriott weaves in some interesting implications that keep you reading. The same is true of the villain.

He is dastardly and despicable and, after one particularly grisly scene, I was convinced he was truly evil. But he wasn't surprising or very complex, really, until about pages in when his character development takes a truly masterful turn. Literally between the space of one page and the next I was fully invested, desperate to see how these heretofore unknown layers worked their way into the plot to wreak havoc.

Unfortunately, this was a bit too late as there were only about 80 pages left in the book. If only he'd become more interesting pages earlier. Because this book has a truly excellent climax, full of fighting and mayhem and excitement. The romance followed the same lines. I loved how unconventional it was, how it was all arranged as a matter of strategy and convenience and whether or not they might actually be capable of falling in love with each other was considered of only minimal importance.

This slow pace was delicious and I bought their hesitance and awkwardness and loved every minute. But things began to fall apart at a certain point and I felt like this central relationship never quite got back its former fervor by the time the story wound to a close. Despite these inconsistencies, there is some real talent here and I will definitely be picking up Ms. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. See all 20 reviews.
