THIS IS A RIVITING BOOK, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN, WONDERFUL INSIGHTS INTO FIRES AND THEIR CAUSES. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND IT
This book was much slower than Fireplay or Flashover. It's clear that this is an authors first work. It was easy to figure out who did it and why and I found that disappointing. In addition, I found the antagonist hard to relate to, be angry, or sympathize with.
I loved my first look at Carter and Marenko. They are what makes this book worth reading as they were the most interesting characters. The beginnings of a relationship between Skeehan and Marenko were interesting and plays a role on their relationship in the future.
While I will not read this book again but I'm glad I read it for the insight into the later books in the future which I liked much better and will read again.
