You're the queen, and it's the queen's house, and whatever Brigan may accomplish, he's highly unlikely ever to be queen.
Dear Brigan, she thought to herself. People want incongruous, impossible things. Horses do, too.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Fire is the last human monster alive and everyday is a fight, with herself and others, to hold on to the little piece of comfort she's found. Monsters are beautiful and their beauty gives them the ability to control anyone they want. Although Fire knows not to use her ability for wrong doing, she is hated and feared by almost everyone in the Dells. Now Fire is traveling away from the comfort and safety of her home in the woods and onto a journey that could change everything.
Fire is no ordinary girl. She is part monster. A creature so beautiful that most people can't control themselves. Fire travels to the king's city to aid him in the upcoming war. But when she meets Brigan. She is reminded of her fathers cold eyes. She has to decide between helping her kingdom or her friend.
This is the prequel to Graceling. The second in the Seven Kingdoms series.
