Guest Blog and Contest: Fire by Kristin Cashore



Kristin Cashore's first novel GRACELING received various accolades and is now available in paperback. But it's companion, FIRE, won't be available until October 5th. However, you can get to know the characters now with Kristin's blog tour.

Book Cover

King Nash, the oldest son of Nax and Roen, is… well, he’s trying, really hard. It’s just that there’s an awful lot of chaos these days, and imminent civil war is enough to put any king off his game now and then, and, well there’s that problem wherein Fire is so mesmerizing that he turns into a romantic saphead every time he sees her… embarrassing behavior for a king, really. Maybe he should apologize. In person, with a bouquet of flowers?

Not excited yet? Then check out the awesome sample Penguin made available on scribd.

Fire by Kristin Cashore


In addition, you can come back tomorrow to read my reviews of GRACELING and FIRE. But you don't have to take my word for it - I'm giving away a signed copy of FIRE to one IBWB reader with a Canadian or US mailing address. Just leave a comment saying which character from FIRE you think sounds most interesting.

There are two chances for extra entries:
Tweet about the blog tour, preferably including a link to my stop, with hash tag #firetour.
Post the widget.




This contest is open until October 3rd. However, my Maximum Ride contest ends 9/28.

  3. I'm having a hard time deciding which character sounds the most interesting. Probably Lord Archer. He sounds a bit like a cad, but a charming one. The whole book sounds pretty fabulous though. I can't wait to read it!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think Fire herself is a fabulous character with lots of complexity.

  5. I think that Fire herself sounds the most interesting, as well.

  8. I think Queen Roen sounds like an intriguing character. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Second to Fire I think Lord Brocker sounds the most interesting. Having read the first chapter, I like how kind he is to Fire and his military past offers up lots of intrigue.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My choice is Fire for sure. How cool and uncool at the same time to be wanted and hated by everyone. Definitely a complex individual.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This book looks so incredible! All of Kristin Cashore's characters look incredible but I'm most look forward to Fire because I love a strong female heroine in love!

    I have the widget posted on my blog.

    Thanks so much!

  15. Lord Brocker is very intriguing, with all the mystery surrounding what exactly it was he did to enrage King Nax so much. I also love how kind and fatherly he is to Fire, especially after what happened to him.

  19. Hi Liviania! Thanks for hosting me and Fire today. I'm tickled that you're asking for most intriguing characters here on Nash's day, because though this was not the case when I started writing Fire, by the end, Nash had become a favorite with me. So I choose Nash (though obviously I'm not asking to be entered into the contest)!

    Hi to everyone writing in -- thanks for entering and for your nice comments!

  24. Well even though I know he's featured I would say that King Nash is the most interesting, I also think Fire herself is but I have a feeling while reading the book I'll get to know fire quickly but King Nash will keep be guessing..
