Title: Face the Fire
Author: Nora Roberts
Series: Three Sisters Trilogy book three
Genre: Fantastic romance
Setting: Once again, Three Sisters Island.
Reason for Reading: I enjoyed the first two and Mia was my favorite character so I wanted to see how things worked out for her.
Finished In: Days.
Pages: 358
Copyright Date: 2002
Cover: A woman stands on a seaside cliff. She stretches her hands out to the lightning in the distance.
First line: "It had been more than ten years since he’d stood on the island."
Epigraph: "O love! O fire! once he drew / With one long kiss my whole soul through /
My lips; as sunlight drinketh dew."
—ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON
Themes: Sisterhood, pregnancy, witches, war between the sexes, first love.
Best part: I like how much Mia enjoys her life without a man.
Worst part: This had a thing I hate about some romance novels, where there's not much consent. At several points Mia tells Sam that he can't touch her, and he doesn't respect that limit. I also don't find the model of "We fight all the time, so we must be perfect for each other!" very convincing most of the time.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Just a Girl" by No Doubt
Grade: C. It was really a let-down after the first two books.
Recommended for: Bah. If you must have the conclusion then you'll read it.
