Book review - Children of Fire, by Daniel Ferguson

I just didn't like this book much. It isn't really that it's very badly written; it's more that the way it was structured didn't really work for me. It seemed like a never-ending series of fights, the outcome of which is at no time in real doubt. Basically, the work lacks dramatic tension, and the lack of development of characters gave it a flat, comic-book feeling that I didn't enjoy.

A lot of this criticism is of course a matter of personal taste, and I feel sure this book will appeal to many people, especially those who like manga and RPGs. But for me, it just wasn't a good read.

Children of Fire is available from AMAZON.
