Editor reviews

A sequence of inexplicable fires leaves arson specialist Ruth Cutter baffled. There's nothing linking them except for the appearance of a strange, disturbing young boy at every crime scene. Who - or what - is he? Graham Masterton creates a disturbing narrative full of creepy and gruesome details, but Fire Spirit becomes truly unsettling with Stephanie Cannon's brilliant and eerie performance. Cannon affects a calm and placid tone, almost detached in a ghostly way that only increases in terror as Ruth, confronting an otherworldly presence she doesn't believe in, tries to solve these crimes and save her family's life.

Summary

A mesmerizing new story from the master of supernatural horror - Ruth Cutter juggles family life with her career as a top arson investigator, but a series of horrific fires leaves her baffled. The victims seem to have nothing in common except the unnatural intensity of the fire that engulfed them... and the creepy kid who haunts each crime scene. But these are no ordinary fires. Can Ruth overcome her scepticism in time to save her family and avert the coming apocalypse?

Drivel from beginning to end

Repetitious, unbelievable and unexciting. Very silly indeed. Wouldn't buy more by this author. Terribly amateurish. Try reading Stephen King instead.

A good listen - quite graffic

What made the experience of listening to Fire Spirit the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the narrator and the descriptive language... was paced very nicely to build up the tension

What did you like best about this story?

The story was gripping and I couldn't guess what was going to happen next. It was a very innotive and unusal story.

What does Stephanie Cannon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The characters come to life with the narration and pace of the langauge. I enjoyed the different voices that she used to differentiate the characters

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book make me skwirm as it was quite graffic in certain areas

Devilishly enjoyable

This story tells of 3 men who join together to wreak havoc across a city by attacking people. These people are pick at random but because of their appearance – no one is safe not the young or the old. Then if their humiliation isn’t enough, the creepy kid turns up and sets them on fire.

Then there are the souls of those who wish to return to tend to unfinished business. Then ask yourself if you were in continuous agony would you do anything to get rid of it?

This book is fast paced and an interesting read. The narration was good, each character is easily identifiable but some of the voices she uses are a little dodgy.
