REVIEW | The Spirit of Fire – Susanne Dunlap

Following on from Listen to the Wind, we resume our story in 13th Century France as our protagonists flee towards their goal of Montsegur before the French forces take the stronghold from the Cathars. I found the first half of the book a little slow to be honest, which surprised me with it being the second in the series, but the tale does pick up again and has a strong finish. I’ve read the Languedoc Trilogy by another author several years ago with similar themes, and although these books are shorter, they still show the struggle of the people deemed heretics and the atrocities committed against them. It is truly horrifying, and doubly so when you look into the history books and see that this event, along with others, did take place.

You probably could finish here if you wanted, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing where this story ends.

Thank you Netgalley and BooksGoSocial for the copy to review

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
