Reviewed by Lis/Larissa:

Firesong is a sweet and light short story. One that will get your “awwww-factor” rocking. It’s also a story that you shouldn’t read too much into (kind of like a Disney movie or you’ll figure out that Simba is actually mated to his half-sister)

Firesong is the story of Miller and Sasha. Miller is an outcast in his village who keeps to himself and bears the scars of his history with fire. One night his past with fire catches up to him when a mysterious and mystical creature crashes into his houses and almost burns it down.

This creature is Sasha. Miller rescues him and nurses him back to health. A misunderstanding is created when Sasha believes he is the cause of Miller’s scars.

Both characters have their pasts to deal with, as well a mystery. The question is: can they work it all out and overcome their pasts to have a future together?

Firesong is a sweet uncomplicated story that is fun and easy to read. As I said before, you shouldn’t read too much into. It’s a little underdeveloped, but this has mostly to do with its length. It would have been nice to see Miller’s past worked out and more details added to the mystery angle of the plot.

All in all, Firesong was an enjoyable story to read.
