Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriot (2 reviews)

Reader Ellie G.
Age 14
Author Zoe Marriott
Title Daughter of the Flames
Publisher candlewick press
Publication date 2009
My review (use back of page if you need more space): In the house of god the orphaned girl Zira has found a home, a family, and a place in the world. Outside her walls though there is a war that it tearing country limb from limb, a war that Zira is all too aware of. But the war is brought even close to her when the only home she has ever know is brought to the ground and the holy mother reaches out to her and gives back her memories of her life as a whole other person. Now it is up to her to gain her peoples trust and take back her country. This was powerful and inspiring in a way that was different from any other book I’ve read. Though I found it slightly annoying that the main character sent a good part of the book having an identity crisis I found that the way the author tided together the two people you had in the main character to be masterful. I would defiantly rate this book at a 9.5 or 10 and would recommend it to all teens no matter what your preferences in reading.

Daughter of the Flames was a well done book with a excellent twisting plotline. On the day Zira is to be accepeted as a novice warrior priestest outlaws attack and destroy her home. She must now lead her people to safety with a man they do not trust. Nominate? Yes. 4Q Better than most. 4P Broad general teen appeal. --Tyler, 15
