I received an ARC for this story.
Bells the daughter of a poor Fae farmer wakes one morning looking forward to starting her day and getting her chores done when she is attacked by a troll who has come for the mace that her father was supposed to make for him. Bells had no idea where her father was as her family was already gone when she woke up that morning. She looked for the troll’s mace in her father’s work shop but it was not there. The troll tells Bells that if she doesn't produce the mace then he was going to eat her and her family as well. Bells makes a deal with him that if he gave her until next week she would see that her father made his mace for him when he returned.
Bells later finds out from her father that the reason he doesn’t have the mace is because her ran out of iron to complete his task. The only thing left to do is for Bells to go to the city for more iron. Bells figures that as long as she is in the city that she would look up this dragon, Jaekob whom she met ten years and enlist his help to save her people from the trolls.
When Bells arrives at Jaekob’s house she meets his father on the sidewalk and while she is talking with him and explaining to him her business at his home he is attacked. Bells steps in to help him fight the ones who are attacking him and is injured. While she is in the city healing from her wound a virus is unleased upon them and the only thing that will save them is a sword that was created many, many years ago. Bells enlist Jaekob’s help in retrieving the sword. Can Bells and Jaekob find the sword? Is the sword even real? Can they save their people from the virus that the dark elves have unleashed upon them?
Reading Sword of Fire was like watching a movie play out in my head. I felt as if I was right there beside Bells and Jaekob when they were flying the air on their journey to find the sword or when they were fighting the dark elves or the wolves. I think I was laughing right alone with Bells when Jaekob needed to eat and chose a cow. I could just see the expression on his face when she laughed at him. I kind of connected with Bells when she kept saying that she was only five feet tall well I wish I was five feet. Sword of Fire is an epic fantasy that will take you on the most wonderful ride of your life soaring the clouds on the back of a dragon. I can’t wait to read more of Through the Ashes world of dragons, Fae, elves and trolls.
I would recommend Sword of Fire to all fans of fantasy and dragons and fae.
But the dragons are not what Bells expected; erudite, polite, and almost aloof, the dragons converse for a short while with Bells, then take wing again. Bells makes a promise to herself; some day she would see the dragon again, and tell him he needs to find a way to make life better for all Pures, not just the dragons.
Ten years pass, and Bells finds herself trapped by a troll; a troll that threatens to eat Bells and her family if they don't produce the promised mace. Bells frantically rushes to her father, to discover the truth: that her father hasn't enough metal to create the mace, which means certain death to Bells and her family. So Bells takes it upon herself to travel to the nearest large city and procure more metal for the troll's mace.
Once Bells arrives at the city of Philadelphia, she approaches a distant cousin, Hawking . He provides Bells with the address of the dragon that she spoke with so many years ago, but advises her she only has a very small window of opportunity to speak with the dragon, Jaekob. As Bells approaches the address, she sees a man approaching a vehicle in the street. Bells thinks it's Jaekob, but it's not; it's his father Micah. As Bells and Micah are conversing, the world implodes around them....
Can Bells reach Jaekob and shake him out of his self absorbed shell? Will Bells be able to save the world as foretold in the prophecy? Will Jaekob be the support she needs, or will he abandon her to her fate?
Fast paced and continuous plot twists keep you guessing! Can't wait to see what happens next!
