    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    M. Davis says: "Another winner by Roberts!"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I was so looking forward to this book. I have been reading Nora Roberts for years. I may even have read everything she has published. I loved last years "The Search" and "Birthright" is my all time favorite. This one just didn't have it. Maybe I just had no interest in fire jumpers, I don't know. I just know it wasn't up to her usual standard. With that said, JDRobb's last In Death book, "Treachery in Death" was the best yet.

    Dear Diary, It will take more than threats - and one overbearing rancher - to drive me away from my rightful property...When I inherited this isolated land near the Mexican border, I knew running it would be difficult and dangerous - very different from my privileged life in Louisiana, where I was the genteel Miss Trilby Lang. But I certainly didn't expect that my neighbor, Thorn Vance, would be challenging me at every turn.

    Story

    I will remember the name of this narrator. It was awful. I think all the grunts, groans, sighs etc from the narrator might have ruined what little story there was, worth listening to, but I can't be sure. Don't get me wrong. The voice was fine. It was the sound effects that made me want to lose it.
    It was an interesting history of The Mexican revolution and what it must have been like to live at that point in history.

    With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    I'm not sure I'd say this sequel surpassed the first book, Poison Study, but it was close. Enjoyed both books tremendously. Gabra zackman does a great job narrating as well. I'm really looking forward to the next book coming out next March!

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."
    "fantastic!"
    Overall

    This was one of the best stories I've listened to yet! Initially, I skipped over this book, not believing I would enjoy aa "fantasy" type story. It was a lack of new material that caused me to try this one and I am so glad I did. I've listened to both Poison Study and Magic Study several times already and have gotten my two young teens into it as well. Audio books are the best use of an Ipod in my opinion. My only complaint is that I now have to wait nearly a year for Fire Study to come out. Great job by the author and the reader!
