I grabbed this from the school library in 10th grade and it was, at the time, the biggest novel I'd ever read cover-to-cover without stopping. When I was done, I immediately started reading it again. I had been enthralled in books before, but this was something else entirely for me. It almost HURT having to return it to the library, and it was even worse when I found out that it was out of publication and was difficult to find. I spent months tracking down a copy to own and have since read it so many times I lost count. 12 years later and Winter of Fire remains one of my all time favorite books and it always will be!! Now, to find an affordable paperback that I can bear to loan to my niece. :D

From Young to Old

So, you've already read over and over again what this book is about--I won't bore you with a summary, let me instead tell you that I first read this book in 9th grade and the story was soo rich and imaginative that I am now 24, still own the book and still read it from time to time. You will not be disappointed.

A book that you will remember for all time

I read this book as a 8th grader in middle school. I only read it because it was the thickest book in the library, which ment it worth a lot of points. From the moment I opened this book I was in the story, and I could feel everything that was going on, I was really there. I can still see myself there and feel the story, I remember the entire storie and it was 6 years ago that I first picked it up. I would have to encourge that this storie be read by all children and adults, as it takes you to this place of adventure and sadness. I believe that all parents should read this storie to their children. It will bring you and your child closer together.

still one of my favorites

I'm a twenty year-old college student and an avid fantasy reader. I first read this book when I was ten and its still one of my favorites. Elsha is one of the strongest and admirable heroines of all time, and Sherryl Jordan is one of the reasons I want to become an author myself.

loved beyond words

Even though this book is loved beyond words i will try to describe it for you. It's about a teenage girl and her struggle against prejudice. It left me a changed person, inspired to live my life differently. I was also inspired to write this review by the worst review of this book I have read. That review was from Kirkus reviews. They stated that the main character sounded like a "walking essay", and that the relationshipes throughout the book were "confused rather than complex." This review is a far cry from the actual book and the reviewer has failed to find the message in the book. The book taught me about the struggles people will endure when fighting for something they believe in. Being a young black woman (now years after my first reading of the book) I applied this to my life and strugglers I have had to endure. This is a great book for young women to enjoy. I strongly recommend reading this book, and hope it will become one of your favorits too.
