Pacific Fire by Greg van Eekhout

I was a big fan of California Bones by Greg van Eekhout. I like when books bring something new and interesting to the fantasy world and California Bones had that by the bucket loads. The magic system of consuming bones (and other body parts) to draw power is still fascinating. Especially, considering that this includes humans. The story sprawls out over California but my favorite scenes are the ones in the reimagined canal filled Los Angeles.

This story starts 10 years after the conclusion of California Bones. Daniel is still on the run with Sam after the explosive conclusion of the last book. We get to meet lots of new characters (including a couple surprising ones) but my favorite is Em. I would read a whole book about her and her magically created sisters.

Greg van Eekhout is a wonderful writer and he continues to build on a world that I can’t get enough of. The story is brisk and full of action. The magic is fierce. Plus, there is a fire drake as the main part of the story. The only issue I have with this book is that it ended and there is only one book left in the series.

If you are looking for a fast paced action fantasy jump on board this train. Go pick up California Bones and Pacific Fire, you will thank me for it. Well, you will thank Greg van Eekhout first. Then maybe me.
