This book concerns the Princess Aislinn, daughter of a king who follows the old ways and a mother who does not. Aislinn's story is rather unique in the trilogy as she is more sympathetic to the Christians then the protagonists of the other two stories. In fact I'd say this gives her a clearer voice then Ethne from Priestess of the Forest and Aoife from The Druid Isle. Characters from both books pop up in Priestess of the Fire Temple, however one need not read the previous two books to derive enjoyment from the third. It does help however if you have read them and there are bits and pieces of Aislinn's story that will make more sense if you do.
Interwoven in the story is bits of druid lore. Herbcrafting, blessings (both for places and people) as well as general knowledge about the old ways are just some of the topics covered. These are presented in such a non invasive way that one doesn't even know they're learning it, they flower effortlessly into the story.
My main issues with the story had to do more with pacing then anything else, I would have loved to see more abou the Fire Temple and learn about its guidehead and I think the romance between Aislinn and a character could have been fleshed out more. These are just personal issues though, your mileage may vary.
All in all it is a fitting conclusion to a lovely trilogy about the ways of the druids. I highly recommend it to both Pagans and non Pagans alike.
