Review: Flamefall

Flamefall Flamefall by Rosaria Munda
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Aurelian Cycle trilogy, a young adult fantasy dealing with politics, revolution and a repressive regime (with dragons). In this book, the stakes are heightened and a nasty and compelling antagonist comes into play. I did think the plot was more convoluted in this book, but the author's concentrating on the characters made that bearable for the most part. The two main protagonists, Lee and Annie, are not sure where their allegiances should be and run through quite the gamut of emotions, rage and guilt being the most prominent. A new viewpoint character, Griff, is introduced, which provides a nice counterpart to the main characters. One bonus is that we get more dragon fights, which are exciting and well-written. This book mostly avoids the problems inherent in a middle book and sets things up nicely for the finale.
