"As Cat's memory returns, he realizes that he has lived two very different lives: One as the son of the ruthless Bartholomew Thorne; the other as the recipient of kindness from Declan Ross and the crew of the Robert Bruce. Now Cat must choose either to return to the ways of his notorious father and join the evil Merchant, or defy the Merchant and risk his life to save his friends."
-Summary from the back of the book
Characters: Excellent! Old favorites from Isle of Swords including Cat, Anne, Captain Ross, and Jacques St. Pierre return, along with many new and colorful characters. Also, the Merchant is almost as chilling as Bartholomew Thorne!
Location: Very good. As before, everything is very clear and well described. The Merchant’s lair is intriguing, though it is slightly unbelievable.
Plot: Very exciting! There is, if possible, more action than in Isle of Swords! The main plot is clear, with a good-sized helping of mystery and subplot.
Other: Isle of Fire is an excellent addition to anyone’s collection of books. It has plenty of excitement, mystery, and humor, along with a stunning cast of characters. This is the type of book that you don’t want to put down!
Overall Rating: 4/5
