Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brave People This story follows a team of smoke jumpers who are dealing with a serial arsonist. They're very brave, both because they fight fires, and they jump out of planes; two things I could never do. You get into the mind of the arsonist and see his motivation for being so destructive. It ties back to the murder of Tess' parents, and of course, the arsonist is never who you think it is. You wonder how a romance can develop between Tess and Chase, since they seem to dislike each other so much at the beginning...but it was all just a misunderstanding. A very unique wedding at the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colleen Coble's Best Yet Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a huge fan of Colleen Coble--have been since the Rock Harbor series. But her latest, FIRE DANCER is my absolute favorite. Her characters, Tess and Chase, leap off the page and come to life. I felt like I was in Arizona, personally deep into the plot. An arsonist takes things to a personal level for Tess, and her family's ranch. Tess and her longtime rival, Chase, must work together to unsmoke the villain, and save not only the ranch, but the forests from the Fire Dancer. Get the book....you'll be in for quite the ride. I give it my highest rating!

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 My heart dances with the leaping flames of the campfire. Mom never cared much for poetry, said she had no use for it in what she faced every day, but the cadence of words speaks to me. Kind of stupid when you consider who I am and what I do. There is more to a soul than what others see. The flames mesmerize me. I hold my hands over the flickering light and take a deep breath I close my eyes. We used to roast hot dogs over a fire in our backyard, just me and Mom, in fall when the stars were clear and close and the air was a blade in my throat. The Navajo witch settles beside me. I''m not afraid, even though my breath sounds in my ears. Shrouded by wolf skins, he seems to grow bigger. People have told me there''s no such thing as a skinwalker. They are wrong. The hair on the back of my neck rises, almost as if it''s saluting the magic of the imposing figure. The heat he radiates is as bewitching as the flames. The witch begins to chant and drops something into the fire. It flares into the black Arizona sky. Color rises deep in the smoke, and I peer closer, longing to grasp the power that thrums around me like an unseen drum. The Navajo witch focuses his dark eyes on me, and I straighten. I am worthy. Suffering produces character, and my suffering is exquisite, like the hottest flame. "You are not ready," the witch says. "I see no pain in your face." His low, guttural voice vibrates with power, a power I will have, no matter what it takes. Can he not see the suffering
