Thank you to Yoanne Re for providing me with a copy for an honest review!
A dragon terrorizes the countryside. Some believe it is simply expanding its territory, others believe the God Myrcurius has lost control of it. But regardless of their belief, they’re all steadfast in knowing it must be hunted down. And while a dragon runs loose, stores of firedust begin to go missing. A single handful could level a city and burn for days. Who is stealing the firedust, and to what end? Will war soon be on the horizon as well?
Flakes of Fire is a great example of a classic fantasy novel. The world-building was so brilliantly done through the eyes of multiple characters. Each one provided another layer of the cultures, magic system, and overall beliefs of the world. And as all of these viewpoints began to draw together, it created an engaging story I just did not want to stop reading.
Dashing knights, heroic rescues, dragon hunting, Flakes of Fire has everything I could hope to look for in a fantasy novel. Being able to juggle multiple points of view, as well as all the different pieces that made this an enjoyable fantasy tale, proves just how talented Yoann Re is as an author. Not to mention the attention he spends building his characters up and throwing twists into their character arcs I could not see heading my way.
I highly recommend this to fans of high fantasy. I want more of this world! Can we have a sequel? I would buy it in a heartbeat!
