1. That scene in Randa’s throne room when the king’s like “I’ll kill you” and Katsa goes “mm no” and he’s all “

I had wondered, before reading this, if iy would still like the story that absolutely blew me away many years ago. Now that I've read and seen so many stories, would this one still seem rich and compelling?

Yes. It absolutely does. Gareth Hines did a fabulous job with the illustrations, and I had tears in my eyes more than once, despite already knowing the story and events!! That's some impressive work.

Vaieldamatult üks mu kõige lemmikumaid noortekate seas. Vaimustav lugu, täiesti originaalne maailm ja sellised tegelased, et hinge võtab kinni, suuremad kui elu :D
Kõik kolm eraldi ka loetavad, aga triloogiana annavad kokku ühe suure kirju ja põneva pildi.

Väga veider, ma lausa ütleks, et kergelt skisofreeniline lugemiskogemus. Raamat ise märksa nõrgem kui sarja avaosa "Gracling" (eesti keeles "Võluvägine"), aga käest ära panna ei saanud.
Sündmustik suuremas osas etteaimatav, kangelanna ebausutav, stamp stambi otsa, aga kirjutatud oli nii oskuslikult, et aga mida kaugemale jõudsid, seda enam haaras. Huvitavaim osa raamatust oli kahtlemate kõik Lecki lapsepõlve puudutav, kahjuks oli see kogu Fire põhijoontes romantilisele loole üsna kunstlikult külge poogitud.… (mais)
