    One thought on “The Firesteel”

    1. I've known Ash online for a while now and was really excited to see her speak last year at !GHC, a sort of anti-Grace Hopper Conference that a friend was running in San Francisco. She had just published The Firesteel after a successful Kickstarter campaign, and she'd brought copies along with her, one of which I excitedly purchased. I tore through this book in a couple of days. At its heart it is a love story, wrapped up in fantasy and time travel, told as a fairy tale to the protagonist's young [...]

    2. I'm really not sure where I even begin with this book. If you want the TL;DR version before I start to wax poetic, I'll just say this: read it. Do yourself a favor and read it. The Firesteel is Natt Raymer's story of the love of his life to his young niece, Macy. Framed in the form of a young man who is in love with Kit, a time-traveling oracle, Natt (Nathanial, Nataniel, Nate) travels from Ancient Greece to Camelot to the to Britain during World War Two, constantly shedding light on the changi [...]

    3. (4.5 stars)If you like the movie The Fall, with Lee Pace, you'll enjoy this-- it's a story within a story, abounding in magical realism and radiant settings.

Also, yay for awesome female characters all around!!And, [...]

    4. This book is so unique, it tells a story of love and heartbreak through time travel. Ash Huang has poetically weaved a beautiful modern-day story through the remarkable years of the past through future.I love the characters, each of them has a distinct personality. I love the character development of Natt’s personae throughout the story he tells in this book. I also adore the fact that Kitami stayed as Kitami or Kit in the story. It tells us, beyond the written words, that Natt has never looke [...]

    5. A beautiful fictional recount of a tumultuous relationship, as told by a jaded uncle to his overly curious niece. The story evolves over many different eras and yet the story develops quite well and smoothly despite the complexity of each setting and the characters' situations. I really love how I could relate with both Kit and Natt this is a great book. Looking forward to seeing more from Ash!From the book:"Let me tell you another story, a story told by grandparents to grandchildren, far acros [...]
