Interview with Cate Tiernan, author of BALEFIRE | The Dark Phantom Review
I picked it up at a library used book sale, not knowing what I would be getting, and ended up pleasantly surprised. See 1 question about Balefire…. Twins Clio and Thais weren’t sure what to expect, but now they are forced to confront a hidden enemy who still wants them dead.
Well some confusions are cleared up and everyone has their happy ending OK correction balsfire everyone At least Richard isn’t related to the twins and Luc is at least making progress. After two weeks balefiire so of not even thinking about this book, I find it in my purse and was like, oh yeah, THAT book. I say darn every time they survive! I did enjoy her writing, and thought it was even better I happened to run across an interview with Cate Tiernan that said Balefire was ended by the publisher early, so I knew not to expect all the threads to be wrapped up.
But no, this book climbs up to a very exciting last minute climax. You don’t know if Daedalus really did kill the father.
It’s a very beautiful city, and the constant heat and humidity make gardens grow out of control. I talked my bby into buying it for me after I spent a few hours babysitting my neighbors kids. I swear, I felt just about every emotion in my entire emotional range as I read this book.
I’m finally done with this book? The constant referring to events to have either already happened, or reminders of who the characters were, what they’d done or how they were related to those more important characters.
I feel like the ending should have been drawn out just a little bit more or even the epilogue. It is four books, consolidated into one. But when they are 16, their father is killed in a mysterious accident, and Thais finds herself in the hands of strangers in a city she never thought she had any connection to. I already knew Manon would die because we never got a single chapter from her POV, plus it’s like the “tragedy” you could see coming a mile away – she finally ages, finally wants to live, and then gets zapped.
I almost d Whew. It was like she got tired and gave up on the characters, which is a shame because I really liked the twins, Petra, Luc, Richard and Claire.
The whole love triangle between the twins and their male counterparts was dizzying, yet breath taking at the same time It was painfully boring, and I was anti-everyone in this book. I also just like reading about sex. It’s not that I don’t work or play well with others, but I need to decide for myself when I do a certain thing, and how I do it.
Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. She moves to live with a total stranger in New Orleans. I highly recommend this read. Thais wants revenge for the death of his father and Clio wants immortality. Yes, there were two major cases of insta-love in the beginning of this book and I was irritated at that. Some were hoping to finally die, others to discover new reaches of power.
They deserve each other. Tienan don’t know how anyone could stand this series. I’m just wondering if there are more books to come in the series. I love those aspects, among others.
Undetailed spoiler ahead, but really not much of a spoiler unless you’ve never read this type of series and have no idea how balefir things play out.
