There's a reason this series was canceled before the third book was published. Fire Raiser is awful. One, it's incredibly heavy handed about its politics--even though I agree with the politics, I wasn't expecting to read political diatribes in a fantasy novel. Two, it's poorly plotted--you don't need to have read Spellbinder to follow the plot, but because major points were clearly set up to be resolved in the third (never-to-be-published) book, it makes the ending trite and unsatisfying. Last, but not least, it's so painfully twee in its romantic relationships that I honestly wondered if Rawn had outsourced the writing of those sections to a giggly 17-year old who had never been kissed. Actually, much of it is painfully juvenile. One of the biggest running plot points was the mystery around the "full first name" of one of the main characters - like anyone past the age of 5 would care whether "Jon" was short for "Jonathan" or "Jonquil" (not a spoiler, just an example). Do not recommend.
