The Fire

Man ruler embarks on a dangerous mission to smuggle a valuable relic out of Albania and deliver it into the hands of the one man who might be able to save it Haidee’s journey brings forth chilling revelations that burn through history to the present da. Giving The Fire only one star might not be fair but I just can t help it having waited like FOREVER and even sounding like a Twilight Fangirl here for a seuel of the ingenious The Eight Since the predecessor was SO very very good it robs me of any creative adjectives I had such a high expectation of The FireBut it didn t really deliver What s with the lead character going on and on aboutfood and not to mention total lack of chemistry whatsoever between Alexandra and her beau Just compare that to the scene when Cat first met Solarin sign and hopefully you ll understand my reason for the one lonely star there This book is supposed to be a two tiers storySo where s the other tier In The Eight the story in the past so called the other tier is even mesmerizing than the present day partI ve already blogged about how Katherine Neville out Dan Brown before Dan Brown was even Dan Brown but in The Fire there is not even a single element of mystiue that made The Eight so ahead of its timeAll in all I don t want to be all whiney about how good The Eight was like I would whine about how I miss the 80 s and I DO miss the 80 s but taking The Fire as a stand alone and not as a seuelwell I still wouldn t recommend it Now let me crawl uietly into the corner with my battered copy of The Eight and cry

Katherine Neville í 3 review

2003 Colorado Alexandra Solarin is summoned home to her family’s ancestral Rocky Mountain hideaway for her mother’s birthday Thirty years ago her parents Cat Velis and Alexander Solarin believed that they had scattered the pieces of the Montglane Ser. Ok I really really really loved reading Katherine Neville s book The Eight several years ago I still think it s a great little book So I was super excited to hear that she wrote a seuel It was all down hill from there I struggled through the opening chapters full of obscure middle eastern names and theories but I hung in there because I thought it would pay off in the end Every corner that the story turned I thought I would finally get to the good part But every time the bad guy was going to get them somehow it all just fizzled out Every single climax in the book just seemed to fizzle out And isn t there a rule about how many oops I forgot my phone was bugged scenarios you can have in one book or Ooops I forgot to check for listening devices before I told you all my secrets in this totally public placeI don t know maybe I just didn t get it I ve never been good at chess but it seemed like her other book was a lot exciting This seemed to be a lot of crazy people sitting around talking about crazy things and drawing completely crazy conclusions totally out of thin air Yah there was waaaaaay too much talking At least there was some nice hot steamy bathroom boat sex gaggaggag

    I am very disappointed to say that I had to give up on this book about halfway through See below to read what I had to say when I began it It's not awful but it was way too easy to put it down and pick up other books Oh well I wrote earlier I've been waiting for this seuel to THE EIGHT for ever Hooray Okay sure I admit that in countless ways THE EIGHT was preposterous and silly I loved it Which makes me as fr

    The author herself describes the predecessor to this book The Eight by saying there were no other books like it She goes on to say that she never intended to write any followups She really should have taken her own words of wisdom to heart as Key would sayThis book had too many ideas names subnames and places and not nearly enough

    It’s been five years since The Da Vinci Code triggered an avalanche of imitators–thrillers featuring codes and ciphers arcane knowledge and ancient conspiracies To me the book that most resembled it was Katherine Neville’s The Eight which was actually written 15 years before the Code Positing a thousand year old chess set with alchemica

    I got an Advanced Reader's Edition of this title and was so excited as The Eight is a book I recommend to everyone This book was extremely difficult for me to be engaged with as there were too many characters and the plot seemed somew
