In Chasing Fire, Nora Roberts introduces us to the Zulies. A group of extreme fire fighters from Missoula, Montana who parachute into wildfires to wage the war from the inside. It's nuts & crazy! Rowan Tripp is the daughter of famed Zulie jumper Lucas 'Iron Man' Tripp and though it seems like those are some big shoes to fill she's got no problem with it. When someone seems to be taking revenge for tragedies that happened a season before Rowan finds herself questioning the loyalty of the people around her. Could one of the men or women she calls family be a killer?
This one started out kind of slow. It wasn't until the last third of the book that I got into it. It was a little predictable (I knew who the killer was right away), but it was entertaining nonetheless. Once again Nora Roberts has taught me all about a subject I knew nothing about! Her descriptions of being in the fire, the heat, the smoke, the sounds were detailed but not over the top.
I love the characters....all of them. This is one of those books that I could read a series of just to get to stay with the characters for awhile.
If you're a Nora Roberts fan you'll enjoy this one. If you've never read one of her books this is a good one to start with.
