  1. I m not a fan of science fiction However, that didn t stop me from enjoying Fireseed One immensely Because even though it is sci fi heavily so it was an action packed, emotional thrill ride that made me forget about the genre, and instead focus on the characters and their journey.Fireseed One is based in a highly imaginative futuristic world where land is a desert wasteland, and people have chosen to build their lives on and around the water to survive Everything is barren and dry, and there is [...]

  2. Ruby s Fire is a fantastic story and one I keep thinking about I keep thinking about Ruby and her brother and those incredible plants Catherine invented Ruby is a character with issues and talents Her talent for mixing natural substances leads to her problem of habitual usage of a mixture that helps her sleep Events in her life feed that need for escape, and that s how the story opens, with the physical need to escape a horrible future Risking all, Ruby grabs her little brother and heads out int [...]

  3. Also posted on Rally the Readers.I really like the idea of futuristic worlds, especially the technology they feature because I m such a tech geek What I don t like as much is when a book with this type of setting gets bogged down by scientific details and draws all of the focus away from the plot and the characters Fortunately, Fireseed One achieves a good balance between providing enough specifics about the world to draw your interest in and help you get a grasp of its workings without overwhel [...]

  4. This review and many others can be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionI bought this book because I needed to review Ruby s Fire for a blog tour and I read that it was a sequel to Fireseed One Even though I read that Ruby s Fire could be easily read as a standalone book, I really prefer to read books in a series in order and not skip past books It s just a hangup I have I m glad that I did because I really enjoyed Fireseed One and I felt like it definitely enhanced my reading of Ruby s F [...]

  6. A THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINING PAGE TURNERCatherine Stine s dystopian novel FIRESEED ONE immediately pulls the reader into a strange, new world The description of the setting from the physical architecture of it to the natural land and seascapes is itself compelling enough that it drives the story I could see it in the next James Cameron film and, as setting is so important to a good dystopian story, it helps to set up the turning points in this novel It also helps that Ms Stine is an accomplished il [...]

  8. Try to imagine a world where global warming has gotten so bad that planet earth is almost uninhabitable below the US Canadian border, with high temperatures exceeding 135 degrees Fahrenheit during the day Fortunately, the polar region has mild weather and people live either on houseboats or on now liveable Arctic islands like Vostok and Svalbard This is the Sea Dominion It s also rather nice in Canada, now known as the Land Dominion But below the Land D is the Hotzone, where daily life is a stru [...]

  14. A tale of a futuristic world, where land and water battle against the odds and each other in order to survive.Despite being out of my regular scope of interest, I enjoyed this story There was life and emotion throughout the plot, which melded nicely with the subplots The writer s word choices were appropriate and flowed from one chapter to the next I really liked how the information about the world, inhabitants, and conflicts were released to the reader It made sense and was quite plausible.My a [...]

  20. Can I just mention that the updated cover is so pretty and much better than the older cover with the people on it And not to sound like a cover snob, but I probably would not have picked this book to read if I had seen the original cover Also, the book blurb I read was concise and interesting, but when I looked the book on I was blown away by the book description It was long winded and did not really sound like the book that I had just read about, but yes, it was the same book It is amazing how [...]

  23.

  24. Why illustrate fiction Isn t narrative enough Since the 19th century heyday of Charles Dickens s ardent collaborations with artists George Cruikshank and Phiz, a trickle of writers has experimented with this hybrid art form At best, story and image interact, energizing the reading experience Such is the case with Catherine Stine s YA speculative novel, FireSeed One Her engagement with environmental issues and the detailed world she creates will appeal to adult readers as well.Stine art directed [...]

  25. Full disclosure Catherine Stine mailed me a copy of FireSeed One in exchange for an honest review Despite the fact that FireSeed One takes place in a highly creative, well built possible future, I have mixed feelings about it.For whatever reason, I could not connect with any of the characters Not a single one piqued my interest and I really didn t care about what happened to any of them, even the main characters I m not sure why this was, but it felt like there wasn t enough emotion in the writi [...]

  29. This book was very good, and people should know about it The illustrations are lovely, the characters are better than a lot of other book and the world building was very impressive I liked the male protagonist a lot, which is rare because I actually believed that he was a guy, not a female author trying to make a realistic guy.Varik was a good main character Though I didn t love him or hate him, I wanted him to succeed and I did care about him Marisa was the heroine and I went from liking her, [...]
