Flamecaster is a mentally difficult book to read with content maybe not quite understandable with children in elementary school or grade 8 to 9 advanced readers. Overall, quite complicated with quick scene changes.

Loved the Seven Realms series. I'm hoping the Shattered Realms picks up a bit more momentum in future books. Between uber creepy blood-sucking priests (I skipped a few pages) and a hard to believe love at first sight scenario, the characters themselves were interesting and I remain very curious about where their adventures will take them.

This is a solid series-opener, despite being a bit slow to get started. Fans of Chima's Seven Realms series, which is set in the same universe as this book, will be mildly traumatized by something that happens in an early chapter (I certainly was), but if they can make it past that, and give Chima the time to really settle back into the world and get readers invested with the characters, it's a very good read. The romantic subplot in this book feels rushed and less emotionally satisfying compared to the slow-burning, exceptionally well-developed romance in the original series, but by the end of the book it's clear that Chima had her reasons for wanting the characters in question to already have formed an attachment. I just think the fantasy universe Chima has created with these two interlinked series is so fascinating and there's a lot of opportunity to develop it further with the rest of the books in this series -- so I'll be eagerly awaiting those future installments.
