    1. I finally tracked down this prequel to The Gammage Cup, and it was worth the hunt. The Firelings have lived for generations on the slopes of Belcher, an active volcano. They survive by following strict rules on how to live and where not to go, along with an occasional human sacrifice down the Long Slip when Belcher gets hungry. But Belcher gets really sick, doom hangs over the Firelings, and their only chance of survival is in breaking all the rules.It is full of memorable characters and plenty [...]

    2. This was the third Carol Kendall book I read, and each one just got better and better. The Firelings is special and not one to miss: readingandwritingandmoviesohmy

    3. Flawlessly creepy kidlit. A very cool and unique universe and a highly engaging plot. One of my favourites since forever.
