The second of the Fire Dancer series and I couldn't read it fast enough! I don't know what it is about Maxwell (AKA Lowell)'s writing, but it's like a fishing hook is sunk into your mind and you're pulled to the very last page....
The worst tease is that the end had an excerpt of the third book (Dancer's Illusion) and I can't get my hands on that one yet!!!
I easily rated this continuing saga 5 stars~
I loved it! Even better than the first in the series (Fire Dancer).
Really fascinating take on symbiotic relationships, besides being a good story. Didn't realize this was part of a series, but I'm going to get the rest of the books now.
