" Greek mythology stuff got me interested cuz i lived percy jackson but this isnt like percy jackson at all. Its written very simple and you dont get a lot of worldbuilding. Idk the story was ok but it bored me. Im not going to finish this series. " said.

" Huh, olipas siinä aineksia vaikka isompaankin saagaan. Kreikan saaristossa pronssiaikaan mennään ja kritisoidaan vähän yhteiskuntaakin, pelätään kummituksia, tutustutaan antropologiaan ja uskomuksiin, ja kaikki kruunataan vielä fantasiakerroksella.Välillä junnaamaan jäävä robinsonadi koukuttaa kuitenkin niin, että taidanpa lukea koko sarjan ja napata vähän isompien vinkkauksiin mukaan. " said.

" I really enjoyed reading this, was bait wary as I enjoyed the chronicles of darknes so much I did not want to spend my time comparing them. The writing and descriptions are great and your get into the characters pretty quickly. This is very much a taser for the next installment as it leaves you wanting to find out more about what happened to some the main characters. Although a similar formatt it is still worth a read and beatifully written. " said.

"I raced trough the story at warp speed. I got into the story very quick. I felt like I was there with the characters, going on all their adventures with them. I loved Michelle’s writing in this book the way she wrote it just painted a picture in my head. And I absolutely loved the part where I read from the dolphin (Spirit) perspective. The end of the story makes you want to read the next book to see what happens to some characters.

I loved every second of the book and can’t wait to read the sequel.

"I read it in a hurry so did not take in perhaps all I should have done and therefore found this book hard to follow. Similar to The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and yet different. Waiting for the second one... Interested to see what happens next. Hoping it might get more interesting and different to the previous series, please Michelle, don't let your brilliant writing get ruined by repeating something you've already written. Overall a good book but I had high expectations that the book just didn't live up to after reading The Chronicles is Ancient Darkness." said.

"This has a well-developed fantasy/ancient world, but I felt like it took a long time to connect with the characters. The pacing was kind of slow for an adventure, and you knew the entire time that it was going to set up a series and probably not get very far. For fans of the Wolf Brother series, this should be comparable. Rather than the wolf/human connection, this one focuses on a dolphin/human connection. I'm never really sure whether to classify Paver as fantasy or historical fiction. On the one hand, there are fanciful monsters and gods, but her stories are set in ancient times when people believed in such things." said.

"El fuego azul es un libro repleto de acción, eso hace que el libro no se te haga aburrido. Este es un libro que me ha gustado mucho, pero pienso que podría ser mejor. He visto que a este libro lo comparan un poco con Percy Jackson, pero la verdad es que no se parecen en NADA (no he leído los libros, pero me he visto las películas). En fin, este es un libro lleno de acción y aventuras que sin duda no te aburrirá. Me ha encantado que hubiera una parte narrativa de un delfín (en 3ª persona), además da la casualidad de que es mi animal favorito. Tengo ganas de leer la continuación de está trilogía." said.

"I loved Michelle Paver's Wolf Brother and I wanted Gods and Warriors to be equally as fun and addicting. It wasn't. Although the story arc is interesting, Hylas is being pursued by blood-thirsty warriors, the actual writing didn't do it for me.

I think the trouble was that the structure was too similar to to Paver's other works in the Wolf Brother series - two kids and a wild animal beat the bad guys. This time, the characters just weren't as gripping (a dolphin?) and the structure felt redundant.

Finally, I felt like there was an overuse of Bronze Age religion in the text. Yes, religious beliefs and actions affected the very core of life during this time, but the constant references in Gods and Warriors got very very tiring.
" said.
