Fire Study

Fire Study (Study, Book 3) Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder

rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fire Study is the final installment of the Study series by Maria V. Snyder. In this concluding book, Yelena continues her magic studies but finds she has a weakness when it comes to dealing with fire. She must learn how to overcome her fears and dig deep to become the person she is meant to be.

The first half of this book was actually pretty slow-going for me. To avoid spoilers, I'll just say that certain people that I love in this series don't show up until about 200 pages in. But once they did show up, the plot lines got crazy, my mind started spinning, and the pages were turning fast. This book is definitely heavy on the fantasy element with a lot of intrigue involved. Some of it was easy to figure out, but some of it kept me guessing until the end. Overall, this was a satisfying end to a great trilogy.
