This dragon-fantasy follow-up volume continues to successfully combine classic elements like dragons, dystopia, government intrigue, civil unrest, and romance. Dragon fans should note that in Flamefall, dragons aren't characters who speak but are more like horses that form a psychic bond with their chosen rider. Reading Fireborne first is recommended, or else readers may find the characters, places, and story confusing. As in the first volume, author Rosaria Munda creates complex, relatable characters and keeps the pages turning with even more intense dragon battles, political intrigue, romance, and plenty of surprises along the way. It also provides food for thought about power, especially compared with inner strength; about how people become powerful; and, most important, what they do with the power they have. It ends on a real cliffhanger that will have readers eager for the next volume.
