'But death for Love, not death for Power, alone is worth the pain...'
Is there any question?
The Lord of Fire's adventures continue, as he takes the helm of the Alliance between humankind and his own Gaian clan.
Newly elected as governor of Baram, entrusted by title to fulfil ancient prophecy as Supreme Protector of both races, Luminor sends his most promising young warrior Xandor to search for other lost Gaians and bring them to safety.
Xandor's mission takes unexpected turns, as he also searches for his betrothed, and his sense of duty and honour are tested to the limit.
Meanwhile, a terrible threat looms, a challenge to Luminor's birthright, and to protect all his people from its dark magic he must take the battle to a foreign land, playing into the hands of a power-mad adversary.
Luminor's unique ability to control the Supernal and Material Fires, courage and love are on his side, but will it be enough to settle the question of power once and for all...
Or will he die trying?

this is the second book I’ve read now from Susi Wright and I think it’s safe to say that I’m officially a fan! I enjoyed her energetic and passionate writing, but also the characters themselves (even the bad ones) and there are plenty! For the most part the pacing was good, I did think there was too much telling backstory at times that slowed it down a bit and the narrative occasionally dragged. But I liked that it was unpredictable and not completely cliché, and even though there are some shocking and sad parts, I enjoyed it all the way through and thought this whole series so far is a great addition to the fantasy-romance genre. I loved how I was able to totally lose myself in this unique and imaginative world that is so much fun and I could totally see this being a movie or something. Hope the series continues! Recommend for fans of NA fantasy and paranormal romance/adventure.

Lately I’ve been in a rut of putting down books and not picking them up again because I lost interest at one point and just never continued. But I’d read another book by this author before and really enjoyed it. So I continued on with the “Fire Chronicles” series with this book, “A Question of Power” and didn’t want to put it back down until I’d finished the whole thing! First off, this book was just so much “bigger” than I’d expected it to be, in terms of characters, overarching plots, times lines, character POV’s, etc… Took me by surprise, but in a good way! Really allowed me to get lost in this world that Susi Wright created and follow along with the various characters as the plot develops. Like her other book, the writing is excellent and you are hard pressed to find any editing or formatting mistakes (very few here and there). Very smooth and polished. I like that Ms. Wright doesn’t stick to the same old beaten-to-death tropes but instead carves her own path that we are eager follow down. Recommend for fans of paranormal and romantic adventure.

4.5 stars You know those authors that when you open their book to read you just know that you are in for a good time? Susi Wright is most definitely one of those authors I’ve had the absolute privilege of discovering this year. I do read a lot of books by lesser known authors (I like to give them a chance and maybe discover new talent). But inevitably I’m left disappointed more often than not. But even if Ms. Wright’s novels aren’t perfect, they deliver an entertaining ride with complex characters and you become emotionally invested whether you want to or not. This one is set in the same universe as the first (Lord of Fire) but focuses on different characters (but Luminor and others from the first are still here) But again it is jam packed with hot characters and creative drama and beautiful writing. An addicting fantasy read suitable for teens on up.

I always get a bit nervous reading the follow up to a book that I enjoyed because so often I am left disappointed… but I am happy to say that while there were a few things in this one that I missed (like more romance) Just like the first I was genuinely impressed with the writing and the way the characters interacted with one another in a way that really made me FEEL something. I always felt like I was really part of the story and enjoying the fun parts along with the characters :). Not only has the magic not faded, it has only gotten stronger. Susi Wright pulls you right into the believable-fantasy world (which is hard to do), and doesn’t hold back any punches. Loved the Xandor/Serafina storyline and the Gaians and Lord Luminor. In my opinion the pacing was better in this one than it was in the first (for me), and I was constantly turning the pages to see what would unfold, but I did think the editing/proofing wasn’t as clean. But all in all another great read, and one I’m sorry is finished. Hope there is more!

"A Question of Power” by Susi Wright continues after the first book in the Series, “The Lord of Fire.” I’d read the first one during the beginning of spring, but I’d read several books in the interim and worried that I’d be lost when picking up the sequel. Not to worry as the author skillfully refreshes us on what has transpired without weighing us down with a heavy re-telling. Just enough to bring us back to the marvelous world she has created. And may I just say what a magical and imaginative world it is! We have many of the same characters, but also meet some new ones. Xandor is amazing, as is Luminor of course . I don’t wasn’t to spoil anything, but there are some huge plot twists and things that you’d never expect to have happen do. I had tears at the end!!! Will there be more? It seems like it, but I couldn’t tell. I hope so! Another must read from this author, and one I highly recommend to fans of women’s fiction, romance, drama, paranormal fantasy, and adventure.

4.5 stars I read the first book in this series, Lord of Fire, a few months ago, and really enjoyed it. I was delighted to read the follow up book, “A Question of Power” and hoped it would continue on in the same vein as the first. It did not disappoint! I was just as mesmerized by this one as I was the first and still can’t believe how original and fresh the story and writing is. Even though there are familiar elements (questing, love, magic, powers, good, evil, etc…) it is all bound together in a way that is nothing like anything I’ve read before. And I love it! The steam, the intrigue, the characters, the innovative powers and how they’re cosmically connected…so much better than most ordinary “powers” that supernatural beings have in most paranormal romance novels. I’m excited for this series to continue, but see no mention of a third? Recommend for fans of literary fantasy/romance/adventure.
