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.
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.

This book was just OK for me. I am a career FF/Medic and found some of it a little annoying. I also thought that the characters of Allex and Rachel just did not seem real... Read morePublished on April 2, 2010 by luvshoes
