Did you read the summary? If you did, and it doesn’t sound like something you’d like — don’t pay attention to it. Honestly, when I read the summary I felt meh about the book. With all the hype though and being given an advanced copy, I definitely wanted to give it a shot. And I am so glad I did. This story is so deep and so much more than Daunis going undercover. It was honestly a journey. The words I want to use to describe this book, I just have a hard time finding. At the beginning of the book, I was drawn in just by the culture. Angeline does such a fantastic job of building this community that makes the reader feel apart of. The plot of the story doesn’t happen until about 1/3 of the way through the book. But even as I started the book, I never wanted to put it down. And then once the plot picked up – it was almost impossible. The pacing was so intense and fast paced. Nothing seemed like it was out of place and every word had a purpose. I figured out a lot of the major plot points but it didn’t ruin any part of this experience for me.

Daunis. Oh my goodness what to say about Daunis. I freaking love her so much. There is so much to love about her that it’s not hard to immediately start rooting for her character. She’s smart, funny, athletic, dedicated, passionate, and I could seriously just go on and on about the amazing qualities written into this character. She never stops reaching for her goals, even as they change. And I immediately fell in love with Jamie’s character also. Even though this book had it’s own plot of trying to figure out the root of the evil in her community, this book was about community. The relationships built and created in this book were phenomenal. I felt a connection with each person Daunis did and heartbroken with each betrayal.

Overall, Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley is not a book I’ll be forgetting anytime soon. This was such a beautifully written book in so many different ways. The story was rich and exciting, but also a journey. There is heartbreak, love, and self discovery. Daunis was such an amazing character to follow and I know I will read her story again. I highly recommend this book to everyone, regardless of your reading style. It’s a story meant to be read and felt – this is a story for all.
