Wow just wow! This was absolutely magical. A book that I will read again and again and again. I loved this book so much. The story and the way it was written took me to another place, I was so involved that I didn't notice anything going on around me, I haven't gotten lost in a book like that in a long time. From the very first page The Arsonists City will pull you in and keep you wanting to read more. It is written in such a way that it flows beautifully and brings the story to life, was like watching a movie in my brain while reading.
