The over all mystery and motivations and how they interact is left in the air, but the book doesn't feel like it's driving toward some immediate convergence like so many books try to do. It helps enforce the idea that these characters have motivations and goals of their own rather than vehicles to chase down some mystical McGuffin like so many fantasy stories do. No one characters has all the pieces to the puzzle and it pays off. It maintains a level of mysticism in its magical system, but the characters never feel the inexorable call of magic for magic's sake.
Ultimately, Fire & Gold relies on strong writing and strong characters to deliver a compelling world and the tantalizing hooks of a greater story to come. A worthwhile read for sure.
The writing itself is exquisite, with no spelling or grammar errors that I saw during my read-through. What wording choices I found odd were more stylistic differences than it being written wrong. The plot is predominately fairly straightforward and classic, with few surprises to me as the reader.
The only issue I had was that I found myself unable to really get into any of the characters. While each had a clear personality and voice to them, I often felt emotionally detached from them. It's possible that this was just because I couldn't relate to them, but this one shortcoming is the reason the story didn't get 5 stars.
