Publisher's Summary

Dara Ruminor is a serious young duelist in the mountaintop kingdom of Vertigon, a land of dramatic cliffs and misty peaks where mysterious Fire magic runs through the stones like blood. The secluded kingdom has been peaceful for 100 years. Swords are used for sport, and successful athletes live like kings as long as the crowds love them.

Eighteen-year-old Dara needs to find a wealthy patron in order to duel professionally and avoid a lifetime working in her parents' Fire Lantern shop. Her efforts are disrupted when her coach asks her to train with Prince Siv, an infuriating - if handsome - young man who refuses to take the sport as seriously as she does. But the prince's life may be in danger, and soon Dara will discover that Vertigon isn't as peaceful as she thought.

As threats emerge from the shadows, Dara will have to raise her sword to protect Siv - if he doesn't irritate her so much that she decides to run him through herself.

    "Excellent piece of supernatural epic fantasy for all ages."

    Duel of Fire is an excellent piece of supernatural epic fantasy, suitable for all ages. The narrator does a lot to bring out the color and feel of the people who are involved with the daily life and the family members of the two main characters. Set in a land ruled by a king in a time reminiscent of the middle ages but with a small amount of magic mixed in Dora, a daughter of a fire magè (that is not what they are called in the book but it is the best way to describe it) wants to be a swords woman instead of working in the family business

    "Fantastic book with fantastic narration"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is pretty much perfect in my opinion. Rivet's style isn't too flowery or wordy. The pace is great. The snowy, fiery mountain creates a great atmosphere. Rivet's depiction of a feudal society feels more convincing than in most mideaval-esque fantasies.

    I think that Dara's relationship with her parents is very unique and interesting. The plot gets a bit predictable, but I enjoyed it anyway. Best book I've read in a while.

    "Could not "put it down""

    Loved it! Finished it within a day rather than a couple days like I normally do with audio books.

    "GOOD PLOT. EXCELLENT START TO A NEW SERIES."

    Very interesting. Well written and performed. Court intrigues, politics, magic, and lots of secrets. A budding romance between the heir to the throne and a girl who saved his life. Secrets and plots and counter plots in the realm. I will be downloading the next book to see what's going to happen next.

    "Unique story."

    Well developed characters, interesting world. Able to see through parts of the plot, but the plot moved quickly and the people were interesting.
