review The Fire

2003 Colorado Alexandra Solarin is summoned home to her family’s ancestral Rocky Mountain hideaway for her mother’s birthday Thirty years ago her parents Cat Velis and Alexander Solarin believed that they had scattered the pieces of the Montglane Ser. Ok I really really really loved reading Katherine Neville s book The Eight several years ago I still think it s a great little book So I was super excited to hear that she wrote a seuel It was all down hill from there I struggled through the opening chapters full of obscure middle eastern names and theories but I hung in there because I thought it would pay off in the end Every corner that the story turned I thought I would finally get to the good part But every time the bad guy was going to get them somehow it all just fizzled out Every single climax in the book just seemed to fizzle out And isn t there a rule about how many oops I forgot my phone was bugged scenarios you can have in one book or Ooops I forgot to check for listening devices before I told you all my secrets in this totally public placeI don t know maybe I just didn t get it I ve never been good at chess but it seemed like her other book was a lot exciting This seemed to be a lot of crazy people sitting around talking about crazy things and drawing completely crazy conclusions totally out of thin air Yah there was waaaaaay too much talking At least there was some nice hot steamy bathroom boat sex gaggaggag

Man ruler embarks on a dangerous mission to smuggle a valuable relic out of Albania and deliver it into the hands of the one man who might be able to save it Haidee’s journey brings forth chilling revelations that burn through history to the present da. It s been five years since The Da Vinci Code triggered an avalanche of imitators thrillers featuring codes and ciphers arcane knowledge and ancient conspiracies To me the book that most resembled it was Katherine Neville s The Eight which was actually written 15 years before the Code Positing a thousand year old chess set with alchemical powers and a larger Game with geopolitical implications the book acuired something of a cult and after 20 years a seuelThe Fire finds Alexandra Solarin a former child chess prodigy who gave up the game after her father s murder summoned to her estranged mother s home in Colorado Her mother is missing but carefully encoded clues and the arrival of several other people place her smack dab in the middle of the Game s newest round forcing her to decipher both the rules and the roles of others friend or foe as she goes The action moves to Washington DC Jackson Hole Kamchatka and back in time to France the Sahara and the Greek islands where we find Lord Byron and Tallyrand among others involved in the intrigueThis seuel seems to me less successful than The Eight Neville has done so much research that it slows the action and I struggled to keep up The rules of the Game remain unclear and a half resolved ending suggest that another volume might be in the works Still one could do worse than a book this brainy and ambitious JohnFrom ICPL Staff Picks Blog

    Uch I didn't even finish the book which is rare for me This was just so painful and tedious to read I couldn't stand it There were parts where it seemed like Neville just took her historical research and put it into the mouths of the characters and I use that term loosely verbatim The whole book felt like an attempt to cash in on the DaVinci Code craze for powerful hidden conspiracies uncovered by deciphering clues novels I am dr

    The author herself describes the predecessor to this book The Eight by saying there were no other books like it She goes on to say that she never intended to write any followups She really should have taken her own words of wisdom to heart as Key would sayThis book had too many ideas names subnames and places and not nearly enough action There is literally one action scene 15 pages from the end of the book and it is tied up nicely ex mach

    I got an Advanced Reader's Edition of this title and was so excited as The Eight is a book I recommend to everyone This book was extremely difficult for me to be engaged with as there were too many characters and the plot seemed somewhat disjointed
