The Eighth Fire [NOOK Book]

Overview

This is a continuation of the first book in the series where the hero, Mark Young, has pretty much come to terms with being treated as an adult. The line between right and wrong, good and evil is a bit less clear and the challenges come from choice rather than the situation.

Overview

This is a continuation of the first book in the series where the hero, Mark Young, has pretty much come to terms with being treated as an adult. The line between right and wrong, good and evil is a bit less clear and the challenges come from choice rather than the situation.
Some readers may think this story similar to Harry Potter too, but that thinking is stretching it a bit unless you think all schools of magi c are Hogwarts with another name. Besides, Harry never was very good with a sword.
The notion of Magi is based on the Wise Men that bore gifts to the Christ Child. They represent the practitioners of the Zoroastrian religion of which there are many myths and legends about their deeds involving astrology, astronomy, healing, charity and knowledge of the spiritual world. The Magi of this series are derived from those Magi plus the swordsmanship, garb, horsemanship and other aspects of the Magi from the movies The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. Their religious views are influenced by Old Testament Judaism, without the blood sacrifices, which produces a character type not often seen in fantasy fiction: the warrior monk/cleric.
The entire series is based on the question: What if it were possible to learn the powers of all the Biblical prophets; what would that school be like?

    Loved it!

    Great read. I can't wait to read the third book. First however I am going to read abbout NaOmi. I'm very curious about her story. Then on to book #3. Anyone who enjoys a good well done series of sci-fi should enjoy these books. Whatever your age.

    First one was great!!

    I just finished the first one and I am looking forward to this one. I think it will be just as good or better! As I have not yet read the book, I have elected to leave the stars at the lowest rate until I have concluded how good this book is. I enjoyed Mark's and his friends' adventures in the previous book and hope the author will continue to provide an interesting read.

    Not as good as the first book

    This is the sequel to The Seventh Mountain by the same author. I believe the action was better in the first book. It does separate the characters and shows the talent each one has apart from Mark. It seems Mark has a couple of interested young ladies thinking of him too. There's also a surprising revelation concerning Mark's mother. It's off to the third book The Cave of Nine Bears.
