Merrill has created a fascinating, original fantasy. Can you imagine never seeing the flames of a fire? A world where fire and factories are created or operated through magic...not the evils of science? Where there is no separation of church and state...and they can read your thoughts? Perish the thought in our world, yet this examines those concepts in a unique way. Mind bending.
While the flow doesn't jive with the way my brain process information, I do recommend this book. This isn't a boilerplate story. It turns the table on traditional magic fantasy novels and is worth the read.

The Seekers of Fire is exactly my kind of novel: a tale of Science and Magic (capitalized throughout the book), religion and politics, which is nevertheless focused on the personal stories of a few characters. Linden and Rianor are trying to study the Science of Magic - a worthy lifetime's ambition, in a world where magic really works, so it's not surprising there are several more books planned. The world feels well-developed and, since the author has a scientific background, I don't doubt that there's a set of logical rules just waiting to be discovered. Meanwhile, the nation's rulers try forcefully to quash any subversive thoughts. I've already downloaded the second in the series and can't wait to see where the story goes next.
