Format: Paperback
From the time when she was a little girl and a firefighter saved her that was the only career that Alexandra Crawford ever wanted. She enjoys the excitement of fighting the fires and the camaraderie that she shares with the other members of the department. Her busy schedule doesn't leave her much time for a social life, but that changes when a minor injury takes her to the emergency room and she's treated by Dr. Rachel Tom. The women feel an immediate attraction and try to set up dates, but are interrupted more than once by a surprising rash of fires that breaks out. It quickly becomes apparent that an arsonist is on the loose and that firefighters are his specific target. Through grief and fear the bond between Alex and Rachel grows stronger and becomes something to fight for as the killer turns them into his special target.

This is a fairly routine story. While the characters are pleasant enough, there is still the feeling that they're not remarkable. The reader will not find any surprises or twists in this story and can probably anticipate most of the plot peaks before much has been read. The fires add a little excitement to the story, but they also follow a predictable route. The book can be read quickly in a few hours and will provide some entertainment, but nothing about World on Fire makes it stand out from other stories about firefighters and their world.

If you're looking for a book that will entertain you for a couple of hours, World on Fire will do. This is one that can be interrupted by other chores and you'll have no trouble following the story when you go back to it.

I really enjoyed this book. Geonn did a great job of taking your right into the lives of the characters, especially the firefighters. If you've never really understood the dangers a firefighter goes through, you need to read this book. I love the romance it was very sweet.

Format: Paperback
This is my favorite of Geonn Cannon's books to date. For the first time, Cannon departs from his lovely island town of Squire's Isle and brings us to Shepard, Washington and a story of love and courage.

Firefighter Alex Crawford is subtly flawed and beautifully real. Her coworkers all have distinct personalities and quirks. Rachel Tom is a deep character of vulnerability and strength. Cannon's first villain often makes disturbing sense in his thinking.

An aspect of World on Fire that I find praiseworthy is that the events of the story have lasting impressions on the characters, physically, emotionally, and mentally. No one gets away unscathed and Cannon does not allow his characters to be as if nothing ever happened. They change and grow along with their baggage. Also, unlike many books in the Lesbian Romance genre, World on Fire is not a porn in book form with its main plot barely keeping in the foreground of the reader's mind but rather more like a rated R movie with just enough sex in it to underscore the characters' humanity. The focus is on the characters' relationships and obstacles rather than on their libidos.

Not only is World on Fire my favorite Cannon book it is also one of my favorite LR novels period. I can hardly wait for whatever is next from Geonn Cannon.

I'm an avid fan and supporter of Geonn Cannon's work, and this latest book has lived up to its author's reputation. Riveting and exciting, romantic and tender, World on Fire leads you through the life of a female firefighter, trying to carve her niche into a man's world. I highly recommend this book, and that you first read the two books before it, On the Air and Gemini. You will not be disappointed.
