Just as a disclaimer, if you don't like books with big, hairy spiders, or stories with multi-tailed spiders who attach themselves to the back of people's necks, who also exert mind-control, well....let's just say that this story might not be for you. However, if your arachnophobia doesn't extend to books, as is the case with me personally, then read on, because have I got a story for you.

Ryan Morales has always been just a little bit different. In fact, his parents have been worried about the fact that Ryan doesn't seem to have many friends, except for Donut. Donut, as his name implies, is a little stocky, a lot talkative, and a really huge lover of bugs and insects. When Ryan seems to make an impression on Corrine, his dream girl, events are set in motion that are beyond anything Ryan could have ever dreamed of.

First, there's the incident at Corrine's pool party, where it looks as if Ryan made the water start boiling. Sure, her parents put it down to a malfunctioning water heater, but a few people don't seem to believe that. Especially Ryan's parents, who, when he recovers from his fainting spell, overhear him utter the word "Akashalon."

From there it goes downhill, as the residents of Gila Flats start acting weird. Weird, and then crazy, as they attempt to stop Ryan and Corrine, two of the only residents without a spider attached to the back of their necks, from finding out the true role that the Fire Prince is met to fulfill.

This is a great book for younger teens, pre-teens, or older reluctant readers. Filled with wonderful illustrations, short chapters, and an intriguing story line, you'll be glad that the last page of HEIR TO FIRE isn't "the end," but rather just the beginning.
